Great Property!

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood pool was wonderful. The house was close to the beach. The house is well maintained and was great for our family of 7. The owners responded quickly to our questions. We definitely would stay again at this property.

Very clean and comfortable - immaculate!

Date of Stay:

A very clean and comfortable home! We are so thankful La Esmerelda was ours for a week. Every area of the home, inside and out, is immaculate. We also appreciate that the trash can was placed at the road when we forgot. The home says it sleeps 7, but that means someone will be on a futon. The master bedroom has a full size bed, which was something we're not used to. Overall, the place is spacious enough for 7, especially since you're spending most of your time at the beach or pool. The kitchen is stocked with every creature-comfort imaginable. Make-up wipes provided in the upstairs bathrooms are a nice touch, as are the curtains that can block early morning sun, if needed. It was gloriously sunny during our stay! Beautiful neighborhood that seems to be a mix of renters and owners. It could use some more street lights at night, esp for those who enjoy a late-night walk. The location is not very close to 'regular' places, if that's something you're used to. McDonald's was 10 miles away, but Walmart is only 5 miles away. If you're heading to Destin or in that direction, prepare for lots of traffic and construction. The beach access that is only about a mile away doesn't have much parking, but you can park along the road. This place is ideal if you want to be away from the hustle-bustle of vacationers.

Clean & Beautiful - We Loved It!

Date of Stay:

The house was clean and beautiful. They went the extra mile and added some personal touches. The neighborhood was great and the location overall was amazing. We were able to walk to the pool, go out for morning runs, and were just about a mile from the beach. We loved it!

Great House - Awesome Location!

Date of Stay:

Such a great house in an awesome location! Check-in was a breeze and Kim + Andy were quick to respond to any questions! We will definitely be back to 30A and loved this cute community!

Amazing Pool - Super-Well Equipped House - Super Hosts!

Date of Stay:

I cannot emphasize how pleased we were for choosing this place for our vacations this year. The swimming pool is amazing, and it is certainly the highlight of this location. But the house itself is super well equipped, with all you need, plus more. Andy and Kim provide instant response to the messages and justify the SuperHost title.
