We recently stayed at Footprints in the Sand and found the experience enjoyable. The home is on 30a which is a great place to ride bikes. There is a short walk to the beach access where we enjoyed the beautiful sand. We also enjoyed grilling out and swimming in the pool while listening to music over the loudspeakers. The house offered the comforts of home while we were away from home. In addition, we were not too far from Destin and the Watercolors area. We found that Stinky's, Maguire's, and Merlin's were great places to eat. I would definitely rent this house again.

Our family of 8 stayed in this beautiful home which is right across the street from the beach. The ocean view was beautiful, the private pool was awesome, the house was clean and well laid out, and the kitchen was well stocked. Couldn't really ask for more. The only negative experience was the Palmetto bugs inside the house in the kitchen area (I don't do bugs). However, the rental company responded quickly and had an exterminator come out the next day, and it was fine after that. I would recommend this house to others and can't wait to go back

We have stayed in several properties offered by five star gulf rentals and this was by far the best. The house was roomy and comfortable. The location was nice-close to everything but yet away from the crowds. Will be back next year.
Thank you so much for your business Dowell family and we are thrilled that you had a wonderful stay! Please keep us in mind for your next trip.

I must say this vacation was the best family vacation ever! First, the home was emaculate. Great kid friendly retreat on the lower level equipped with bunk beds, game system,and air hockey. Awesome heated pool, great views with balconies galore. Location was great (right across the street from the beach) and the property management service was top notch. Can't wait to go back.
Glad you enjoyed your vacation and the property! Please let us know when you return to Destin and keep us in mind for any future rental needs.

Nice home with plenty of room. The only time we called, staff responded well. Home does need a new grill. We did not use all available equipment, toys, etc but every thing was sevicible. We had a very pleasant stay.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you had a nice time at the property. We hope to welcome you back to Destin in the near future and hope you will consider Five Star Beach Properties for your rental needs.
