What Our Guests Are Saying

Family Getaway

"Peaceful Palms home layout is optimal for multiple families to enjoy. The kitchen is massive with multiple refrigerators, dishwashers, and garbage cans making large meals/gatherings much easier. Kids and adults will be very entertained with the game room and movie theater. Each floor has its own kitchenette making it convenient regardless which floor your room is on. Every room has its own bathroom as well as an outdoor bathroom for the pool. We will be back at this home; the location/privacy of the lot as well as the features listed above is what will make us be repeat visitors. Cheers!"

Dream House

"No words can describe how amazing this house was. We had 5 families stay for a week in this gorgeous house and it felt empty. It was so large and filled with all the necessary items to feed such a large group. The kitchen was filled with all the trays, bowls, silverware anyone could need to entertain. There was ice machines and refrigerators everywhere. The golf carts were amazing! The rooms were all gorgeous and the kids loved all the bunkrooms. Thanks Destin Dreamers for such a lovely stay. We wont ever go to Destin again without staying at Sapphire Shores!!"

Wonderful vacation

"The house itself was perfect for our three families with seven older kids. The location is great, the house has everything you need and is very comfortable. We spent hours sitting around the island in the kitchen talking and laughing. The only issue, which is not the owners fault, is the shared pool. It was always crowded and very noisy with lots of small kids. We did not use it once. Having the golf cart was a nice extra. We used it a couple of times to go to the beach and local shopping. Overall, no complaints about this property or management."

Love love love

"When we booked this Spring Break trip, we thought the house was too good to be true, so I was a bit hesitant - Would it look like the pictures? Would there be enough space? Would it work for our three families? Yes, yes, and yes. Beautiful home, close to the pool, short walk to the beach, convenient golf cart, great location - we loved it all and are thankful we found this little slice of paradise. Moms will love the two sets of washer and dryers that fit nice big loads, the extra towels in each bathroom, and the nice BIG fridge to share with other families. Five stars - highly recommend!"

"What a beautiful home with amazing views! The house was immaculate and nothing is left out. Each floor has amazing views, the pools are perfect for large groups. The kitchen is well stocked with enough cutlery for everyone. Loved having the four beach chairs set up every morning and the house even comes with more beach chairs. Destin Dreamers left nothing to chance on this one. We had a great time!"

Beautiful home. Great location

"We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. We had a total of 20 people and worried that we'd feel like we were on top of each other, but the design of this home allows us all to spread out. The backyard pool area was wonderful, as well as a seating area out front. We loved the location, nestled in the back of the neighborhood. We will definitely be staying again here!"

Fantastic home

"The house was beyond what we dreamt it would be! From the moment we walked into the home it was breathtaking! The pictures do not do the home any justice. It far exceeds what you think it would be. Very clean, great amenities, very nice pool, and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. We are certainly booking again!"

Great House for Families

"The house was perfect for our family trip! We enjoyed our stay so much and the house was stocked with everything we needed for it to be a success. We would definitely rent this house again!"

Magnolia Retreat, Miramar Beach

"We really enjoyed our stay at Magnolia; it was beautiful, extremely clean, and with a fully appointed kitchen. We especially enjoyed the balconies, patio with grill, and many activities including a full sized pool table, karaoke, and arcade style video games. Magnolia is conveniently located between Baytown Harbor and Destin Harborwalk, near lots of outlet shopping and restaurants, and an easy 10 minute walk to the beach (although a 6 seater golf cart is also available). Destin Dreamers was quick to respond to any questions or concerns. We enjoyed Walton County Snowbirds Club with so many activities and friendly people. Thank you, Michael and Allie!"
