“could be better”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

The pool was wonderful. We had plenty of towels. Good to have three full baths, but needs safety bars in walk in shower upstairs. Floor gets slippery and dangerous. Kitchen is totally disappointing. Not even potholders!!!!

Response from the manager Thank you for staying with us and taking time to leave your review. We appreciate your suggestions and we will pass them on to the owner. We apologize that you didn't have potholders. They may have been removed for laundering. At any time, if a guest is missing something, or finds something not working properly, a call to our office will quickly take care of the problem.

Not big with words. My experience was a pleasurable one. It felt like home. It was beautifully decorated, designer's touch. The location was great. Just a couple of mins walk to the coast. Stores close by. This may sound corny but it had a great washer & dryer and the tv's in every room a bonus. I don't think the carpetting had been steam cleaned because my dog was sniffing around so I know there had to have been another pet there. The pots and pans were not great, over used, some needed throwing out, loose handles, which could be a hazard. I noticed on the tiles inbetween the lines had not been cleaned. Overall though we loved it. Newman Dailey Properties are No 1 in my books. Too bad the weather did not cooperate. Thank you.

“Perfect location!”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2014

The people at Newman-Daley were very nice and helpful. We left the polar vortex to head to Destin, one of our favorite places. This house was great, couple blocks from the beach, couple blocks from shopping. Very comfy house and yard,we would rent it again. Only couple things to mention: the vertical blinds needed to be cleaned and the baseboards,and the deadbolts need to be fixed.

“Great Week in Florida!!”

“Great Weather!”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2012

We stayed in Sunkisssed for the months of Jan.- March 17th 2012. Sunkissed is in a great location, only blocks from the beach and shops. In our opinion the home is tired. The livingroom furniture is not comfortable, there is no way anyone could sleep on the sofa,, hard to sit on for any length of time let alone sleep on. We also think it is quite a stretch to say 11 people could sleep there. There were really only two bedrooms, the other rooms with trundles were open areas. We feel only 6 six adults and perhaps a couple of children could sleep comfortably. As far as new bedding, the mattresses (in bedrooms) were alright but think the owners could have spent a little more to upgrade them as in a short time they will need to be replaced again. The home was not as clean we expected it to be when we arrived. Newman Dailey did attempt to make it right. We realize it is the owners who have the last say in what is bought etc. for the home, but perhaps Newman Dailey should re evaluate this property until up to standards. We also were constantly told/read by agents/owners that Crystal Beach was not an area where the "spring breakers" spent time, well; that was not the case. There were numerous homes rented in Crystal Beach to spring breakers and it appeared that no adult was in attendence! Having said the above, we did settle in and enjoyed our winter stay. We are returning next year but not to this property. D. Edward

Response from the manager Thank you so much for posting your review. This is one of our most enjoyed homes and you are correct about the great location and distance to the beach however I feel the rest of the review is unfair and incorrect. The home does comfortably sleep 11 people and is perfect for one family or two families traveling together. On the 1st floor you have a guest bedroom which does provide a door for privacy. This room has a brand new full size bed with trundle option. On the 2nd floor you have two bedrooms each provides a king bed and a door for privacy. In addition to these three private bedrooms you have a 3rd floor loft/kids area which provides a day bed with trundle option. This room does not have a door for privacy however it is the only room on the 3rd floor and it provides a great area for our younger guests to sleep, play games or watch movies. In the past year the owner has replaced all carpet, purchased a brand new bed including mattresses for the 1st floor guest room, new bedding for the master bedroom, flat screen televisions throughout, and resurfacing of the pool deck area. Our winter season and spring season do overlap a bit in March. Newman-Dailey strictly enforces our 25 and older policy but we do not have control as to when and where spring break is scheduled. Peak spring break does not usually begin until late March but there are a few schools that start their spring break as early as late February however this is a select few. I am thrilled to say our spring break 2012 went without any evictions or major incidents; everyone was on their best behavior as they usually are in our area. I am thrilled to hear that you will be returning to our area next winter. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly as I would be happy to assist you in finding a home more suitable to your needs. We look forward to your next stay with Newman-Dailey Resort Properties. Amy Turner – Property Manager

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2011

This house is located in a great area!! Close to everything. Short walk to the beach as well. House has a great layout on the inside and very roomy. Only thing we didnt like was the fact that there was no direct access to the pool from the house. Also wish the house had two ac units. One was unable to really cool the upstairs, and especially the third floor room. We went at a time when it was not super hot, so the summer time would be worse.

“Great vacation with the entire family!”

This was our second trip to Destin and our parent's fifth or sixth trip. We have always stayed in a Newman-Dailey property, but this was the first time at the kiss. After driving nearly 800 miles through the night with a 1 and 4 year old, we were very happy to find that the check-in was once again quick and we were able to get into the house without any delalys. Once there, we found the house was spacious, very clean, and the beds were comfortable. Having two master bedrooms was great for us and our parents and the third full bath was also helpful when getting ready in the morning or cleaning up after a long day of playing at the beach and swimming in the pool. The room on the third floor was a little warm, but we were able to adjust some of the vents and use a fan to keep it comfortable. We were a little concerned that traffic may be loud, but the noise was barely noticable inside and traffic was pretty light since it was late September. With the beach just a short walk away, we spent nearly every morning at the beach and the evenings relaxing by the pool. Overall, we had a great and relaxing week. The only concern we had during the entire trip was one afternoon we returned from the beach to find a new chair in the living room. We assumed the Newman-Dailey staff had brought it while we gone, but were a little concerned that other people were in the house with our personal belongings without our knowledge while we were not there. However, we would still recommend this house to any family.

“Very enjoyable”

Nice house though the floor in the den was not completely cleaned. Short walk to beach. Loved the pool and 2 big bedrooms upstairs. Quiet. Very close to restaurants and grocery.

“We had a wonderful time in Destin at the Sunkiss Cottage!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2010

We spent one week at the Sunkissed Cottage in Destin. Our stay was so nice. The house was beautiful, clean and well taken care of. We were within walking distance of the beaches. Everything worked perfectly in the house and one night the microwave broke (you need this with 6 kids!), and Newman brought us a new one before 9 the next morning. Excellent service. The location was in middle of everything - food, movies, entertainment. Plus, the pool was heated and clean. Our kids had a lot of fun searching the house for games, books, puzzles and DVD movies that are there.

“Very nice'”

Reviewed 26 May 2010

We have been fortunate to come to Destin every year for the past 9! We have stayed in many houses. Usually we are with a party of 10. This time just 4 and sunkissed was perfect! The pool was so nice & clean. The backyard was big & comfortable and the gas grill was nice.. This house was great for two couples but more than three would be pushing it! As the 3rd bedroom gets used for easier pool access. Kitchen items were a bit scarse as far as spices, coffee filters ect. Things you don't want to think about spending money for on vacay. The road was never loud considering it was a busy one! Very close to the beach and shopping! We loved it and will be back soon!
