Review of 294 Gulf Shore Drive

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-04
Fabulous beach vacation in this home with a pool. It’s not “on” the beach, but the walk is short. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware. There were even kitchen scissors, spatulas, measuring spoons and cups. The newly installed dishwasher is quiet, and the home was well cleaned. We had a fabulous time.

We were very pleased with the property and great location. It was much better than the pictures on the site. The deck was a favorite spot to sit and watch the ocean, especially in the morning as it was shaded by the house. We all loved coming from the beach to the pool, which is a nice size. The unit had not received new duvets, so had to bring our own extra blankets (the unit didn’t provide extra)especially for downstairs which got colder than upstairs. The property manager, Tracy, was extremely helpful.

Beach house with a view!

By: Trip Date: 2020-01-06
We really enjoyed our stay at this beach house this fall. It was perfect for our family vacation that included three different generations of family members. The location was perfect. The neighborhood is surrounded by a nature reserve so the beach is almost like your own private beach. We loved the place so much that we have booked it again for an upcoming girls trip.

Third year at this comfortable house. Great pool for us and the grand kids. Ocean is so beautiful. Thank you Destin Memories ! Best tip: Avoid the hassle. Rent your beach chairs and umbrella. It will be set up every morning on the beach for you.

Perfect Beach location

Breath taking

A Wonderful Vacation!!!

By: Trip Date: 2018-09-29
The house was perfect for our family. The kitchen was slightly lacking in some utensils but overall it was great. The pool is fabulous and there is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the beach. The house is in a great location and just a short drive to numerous restaurants and retail shops. You can enjoy the pool while listening to the sound of the waves. We have already made plans to return.

Great views, nice place

By: Trip Date: 2018-07-07
Location was wonderful, house was nice. The bunk room was a smaller than we would have liked--but it worked out. Having the pool was great and there was plenty of parking. Check-in was smooth and easy, no surprises; and the house was clean and ready for occupancy. Seems odd that the screen room doesn't walk-off into the pool area, but probably a code issue.

A Fabulous Vacation Home-Away-From-Home

By: Trip Date: 2018-06-16
Destin Memories' staff are quick to respond to any and all e-nails, and the owner, Greg, has been available and very gracious to respond. Everyone with whom I have spoken make me feel as though I'm their personal friend. It's nice to deal with nice people. What a fabulous stay at 294 Gulf Shore Drive. The home was very clean when we arrived, multiple TVs were nice to have so that the littles could watch appropriate programs and the dads could watch sports. A pool is a must at the beach, and this pool was clean and a great size. There were even pool/beach toys in the coveeed area. Loved the covered parking area large enough to park three cars in the shade. We love Gulf Trace, it's uncrowned beach, clear water, and soft white sand. We highly recommend this home and will come back for a third time next year. Do wish there was 1 more bathroom. Ha!

A good beach expectancy

Wonderful Stay! Clean unit, well stocked! Tricia was wonderful!Booking was very easy and company was great to work with. Beautiful view and very short distance to beach. We will be back.

Late Fall Getaway

Could not have been better! The location was awesome...steps away from the beautiful beach, very quiet neighborhood, and convenient access to bike trail and local restaurants. Perfect house for our family.

Fall Family Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2017-10-14
As a family, we travel to 30A every fall. I have to say, this is arguably my favorite of all of the rentals we have stayed in.
The location in Gulf Trace is super quiet and the road the home is on has virtually no traffic, which makes the 2 minute walk to the beach very safe and easy.
The combination of the large, private pool and view and proximity to the beach is a great combination for the price.
The location is great, just a quick 5 minute drive in either direction to Watercolor, Seaside, Gulf Place etc.
The interior of the home was nicely appointed, with comfortable clean furniture and a pretty well appointed kitchen. They lay-out was nice for a 2 family stay, with 2 bedrooms/baths on the main level and the bunk room and other bedrooms upstairs.
The only negatives I could mention were really poor wi-fi service and I would mention that the bedding could use a refresh, it seems a little tired and worn. Those are really the only blemishes I could find in an otherwise, great stay. Would surely book again!

Perfect Vacation!

A beautiful house with stunning views. Everything we wanted.

Great house for multiple families

By: Trip Date: 2017-09-23
"We absolutely loved our stay at "Good morning Sunshine". We had 3 families with 6 adults and 7 children ages 6-8 and we all easily and comfortably fit in this house. Sleeping arrangements were easy with the bunk beds and the room with 2 queens and a couch. The three king rooms really were great for the 3 sets of parents. (One review earlier said that the upstairs bathroom was only a tub - but rest assured it is a tub and shower combo and although it is technically "shared" with the other occupants of the top floor, it was never an issue for us and shouldn't be for most.) The eating area was perfect as well... there was always plenty of space to spread out and eat with the bar stools and the large dining table. The living area was also perfect with 3 large couches - we always had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The views were amazing and having our own private pool was the perfect way to top off an already perfect rental. We are already talking about when to book our next trip to this location. Since this rental is in a quiet neighborhood surrounded on three sides by the state park, the beach is practically private compared to other busier areas of the gulf. Oh and get ready to see some amazing wildlife! There are deer that walk all over the neighborhood - they are amazing to see as you walk, jog or bike around the neighborhood. This rental is also just a short walk or bike ride to the 30A sidewalks that runs east and west for miles. It was easy to hop on our bikes and ride for 5 minutes to get to the Grayton shops or ride for 30 minutes to get to the popular area of Seaside. We highly recommend this location!"

A great location

Our family has stayed at this property twice now and you cannot get a better location with a private pool for the price. We would definitely recommend

Beach bound

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-15
Overall we had a wonderful time! The house worked well for 3 families- 6 adults & 10 kids. Pool and ping pong areas were a huge hit! Great neighborhood! The description of walkover to beach led us to believe it was right across the street & it was actually 3 houses down and across the street. So a little more walking than we expected.

Good house with a great view!

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-13
Great house, but the 10 people upstairs have to share 1 bathroom with a tub only, no shower. Inadequate. Dishwasher doesn't clean dishes well & cooktop is irratic. This house ideal for 6 or 8.

Fall Break

By: Trip Date: 2016-09-17
Upon entering the unit, we discovered it was dirty, cigarette buds everywhere, the pool was filthy and the cleaning crew was still there (an hour past checkin). With a $400 cleaning fee, we expected it to shine. The door would not lock and took several days before it was fixed. The toilet leaked, the light fixture in the bedroom was broken and the shower handle in the 2 showers were broken. Lights outside would not work and the pool was never cleaned.

Fun Family Home

By: Trip Date: 2016-05-14
We traveled with 3 families and this house was perfect. It was an easy walk to the beach with was not crowded! We also enjoyed the pool. The house was very clean and well maintained. We also appreciated all the pool toys and other things that were at the house to use for our week stay. The rental company was very helpful and courteous!

Spring Break 2016

By: Trip Date: 2016-03-12
We had 16 people in this house - 2 adults and 14 college kids. The house was perfect for us. Other than the kitchen needing some more pans and a drying rack, we have no complaint.
