“Everything you could want for total relaxation!”
The owners and property managers provided everything you would ever need to enjoy your vacation. Property comes with all items to enjoy the beach, including beach chairs, a large beach wagon, bikes and even fishing gear! The pool and spa were awesome. The house is located a short distance from the beach and dining. The house was emaculate! The layout of the house was wonderful with each bedroom having a private bath. The home offered high tech ammenities and the kitchen had everything you would need to cook all you meals and enjoy the outdoor pool area at night. The property managers were very friendly and answered all of our questions during our stay. The bike paths in the area were great and made dining, shopping and the beach easily assessible. The furnishings for the pool area were wonderful. The possible configurations for all the bedrooms offers a huge variety of sleeping arrangements to meet your needs.
Response from the owner So glad your family had a terrific vacation at Gone Gulfing! Our team tries very hard to make sure we exceed your expectations and make your vacation as special as we possibly can. The fishing gear is a new item for us this season. I hope were able to use it and had some fishing fun! Thanks for taking care of our home. We hope to have you back again sometime. Take care, Trudy
“An Experience Like No Other!”
Wow, I have had the pleasure of traveling the world and I can't say that I have ever stayed anywhere that gave me a first class experience while making me feel right at home other than Gone Gulfing. This home is beautiful. The furnishings are great, the beds are comfortable, the pool is fantastic, everything is clean and you are just a short stroll to the beach. What else could you want right? Well, let me just say that this place has so much more. I will start at the front door with the electronic keypad lock. No keys to worry about being returned, lost or shared and when you leave you know you locked the home securely behind you and that you can get in with an easy to remember code...it makes me want this system on my own home. Second your kids will love the massive entertainment center in the living room. The huge flat screen TV comes well equipped with Xbox, Wii, DVD player and cable that are all controlled by an iPad Mini remote control! So cool. The kitchen is spectacular. I felt like I had died and gone to heaven with the coffee system that produces its own water, the margarita machine and little things you don't think about taking with you on vacation. i.e. can openers, scissors etc. Upstairs the bedroom were so clean and comfortable. Each outfitted with their own flat screen TV, coffee maker and gorgeous bathroom. Also they have the oh so cool Nest thermostat to make sure that the temperature is always just right. Outside you will find an oasis in the backyard. The pool and hottub would be enough to impress most but when you add in the cabana, the lights, palm trees, outdoor speaker (complete with Sonos sound system) and you are in heaven! Oh and get this...they even took the time to label the plants and flowers...something that may not seem like much but it gives you an idea on the level of detail given to this home. I could write tons more about it but do yourself a favor and book this home now. I will be visiting again very soon.
Response from the owner We work very hard to give the "little things" a great deal of attention. It's incredibly rewarding when our guests recognize and appreciate our attention to detail. Thank you. It's all about making you feel special during your stay at Gone Gulfing. Reviews like the one you have written here are heartwarming and we thank you for taking the time to put your thoughts down. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and we hope you will come back to see us again. Take care, Trudy
Upon arrival we quickly realized the owners had thought of everything for our vacation to be enjoyable and the pictures were spot on. It is a very short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. We also found the local golf courses to be in excellent condition and reasonable for the quality of play. The house is great for a family, golf, and couples getaway. This house has everything and will exceed your expectaions!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your kind words! We've all stayed in places where the real destination does not measure up to what was represented in the listing. Accurate representation is important to us and we want Gone Gulfing to not only be what you expected from our pictures but we strive to exceed those expectations upon arrival. It was a pleasure hosting you and we hope you have you back sometime! Take care, Trudy
“Impressive attention to detail”
I found my recent stay at the Gone Gulfing beach house exceptional. The house is beautiful, and walking distance to an uncrowded beach. From an amenities standpoint, it is one of the nicest rental properties we have ever stayed in. Every convenience was provided with top of the line equipment and accessories. And the back yard is amazing. I literally took pictures with a plan to recreate the entire pool area in my own backyard one day... A beautiful place for sure...
Response from the owner Thank you so much! We understand that vacation time is precious and we make every effort to make time spent at Gone Gulfing special to each and every guest. Good luck with your backyard renovation and we hope to have you back in our backyard again soon. It was a pleasure!
“"They have thought of everything!"”
My family of 9 stayed at Gone Gulfing 7/27/13-8/3/13 and we were blown away! Trudy and her staff have absolutely thought of every comfort imagineable in a vacation home! We have stayed in many vacation homes on 30a over the past 8 years and there is simply none better. This home was the absolute cleanest and best maintained that we have ever been in. We have stayed in bigger, more expensive homes but none of them were better decorated, cleaner, with more amenities. Carol and Rob were there to greet us with fresh flowers and made us feel right at home. They answered all our questions (especially about all the high tech gadgets in the home!) and responded promptly when we called with other questions. Each guest having their own bathroom made getting dressed to go out effortless. The pool and spa area was spotless and the extra toys, grill (with all the necessary items) were very much appreciated. The beach really is only 5 minutes away...I timed it! The kitchen was well stocked with spices and so many things we usually have to buy. We found ourselves wanting to "add to" the pantry for the next guest as others did before us. I could go on and on..but really all I want to say is Trudy, Carol and Rob are great...Gone Gulfing is great...and you won't be disappointed if you book. And as a sidebar...I am really picky, my family can attest to that! I have been known to refuse to stay at some places, so this review is really high praise from a very picky girl!
Response from the owner Thank you for such a glowing review! It really is our objective to make every vacation special. Vacation time is precious and family memories are so important. We like to set the stage allowing for those memories to be made. We've had a lot of family vacations over the years that provide us with memories that we cherish. We want the same for our guests. Thanks to you and your family for taking such good care of our home. That means a lot to us. We work hard to keep it nice for everyone and appreciate when our guests respect and care for the house as well. It's been a pleasure working with you! Take care, Trudy
“Wonderful beach vacation home with everything you need!”
Gone Gulfing could not have been better. We were three families who wanted to be close to the beach, but wanted the privacy offered at this wonderful, gated, resort-like home. This home was by far one of the most well-appointed homes that we have enjoyed. Details that made it unique: A resort-like back yard with a (larger than we expected) heated pool and hot tub surrounded by plenty of exceptional seating and dining areas, a shed full of beach toys, great bikes (not rusted out beaters), a beach dollie for chairs, a great wheel barrel for toting stuff to the beach, a large area on the backside of the house where we projected concert Dvds from the pool area for our own dive-in theater, electrical outlets all over the back yard to accomodate plug-in boom boxes, lights, etc., a safety gate to keep the kids from wandering into the pool area and more. Inside the home were gadgets galore! Keurig coffee makers, Sonos internet radio, internet-connected TVs with Netflix, an Xbox with plenty of games, tons of family-ready Dvds, board games, blow-up Frontgate beds, incredibly soft linens and blankets, balconies off of each room, strong wi-fi (wireless) internet access, ample dresser storage for clothing and large closets, including a safe, exceptional dinnerware/cups/mugs/etc., large pantry, and more. I could go on and on. What we were not expecting is just how close we were to a great shopping area with a large, manicured grass field in it's center where the kids played ultimate frisbee, lacrosse and bocci. They rode their bikes there every day for the part of the day when we were not on the beach. The restaurants nearby (walking distance) had great live music and exceptional food. Overall, I could not have been any happier with the home. The owners were extremely accommodating, responsive when we needed them and have clearly paid careful attention to every detail and need of families traveling to the beach. Extremely well-done! We'll definitely be back.
We live in the Destin area, but needed to get away for a couple of days to pray and retreat with our family. "Gone Gulfing" greatly exceeded all of our expectations. The amenities were exceptional. Beds were comfortable, rooms beautiful, sound system dynamic, and tons of family games. It was a wonderful time to connect with God and our family in a place where every detail was thought of. Loved the hot tub, outside fire place, gaming systems, coffee stations in the bedrooms, robes, porches, close walk to the beach, restaurants, and tremendous service!
Response from the owner Thanks so much! You and your family were a pleasure. We are so glad that Gone Gulfing provided you with the comfort and peace of mind your family needed. Please keep us in mind for future family retreats!
Gone Gulfing was the perfect home for our family holiday vacation. Four bedrooms was what I wanted but four on-suites were a dream come true! The owners thought of everything, even down to the bathrobes in each bedroom closet. There wasn't a thing that we needed except ourselves, our personal items, and food. Everything else was provided. What a beautiful home in a fabulous location! When my husband and I first arrived, we felt as though we were walking through a model home, it is so well decorated. One of my daughter-in-laws told me that it was the best family vacation that she had ever had and my eldest grandson asked me if we could come back next year and stay in the same house! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for wonderful memories!
