My family vacationed in The Star Fish House over fourth of July and it was absolutely fantastic! There was plenty of room for everyone and it in close to everything including a short drive to the beach. The pool is top notch and it was absolutely a destination vacation!

Three story beautiful house across from the pool! Very spacious..able to have space for 7 to 9 people without being "to close". Very clean... LOTS of stairs... get a workout without even trying. Walking distance to Crystal Beach... Beautiful... Grill outside the door and over by the pool. This is great place! Pets welcome too.

This is one of my favorite vaca spots. The vacation homes are so spacious and everyone really enjoyed theirselves. The beach was only a couple miles away( walking distance), shopping right across the street. Will be going back. Our family consisted of 22 ppl all in one house. You would think it would be overly crowded but it was great.

We paid less than $1700 for Tuesd-Friday rental. 4 bedrooms very spacious, nicely decorated, clean, modern. I thought it was great! Pool is awesome and the small community is adorable. Close to the beach, and the shopping center, fast access to the toll bridge to come back home. Very pleased with the overall rental! Will definitely be back! & yes... More

My family and I have been visiting Destin for years and it has always been a nice peaceful place to relax on vacation. The locals are great. I have noticed in the past couple of visits that Destin is quickly resembling Panama City,Fl. The beaches in Destin have grown over crowded with party seekers and very questionable people. Im not...

Great rental house in the Villages. Feel safe with kids riding bikes around the gated community both day and night. Large resort pool is great and a nice change from the beach. Leave the bikes and beach gear on the front porch at night and no concerns about it being taken. Shops and restaurants close by.

Thirteen of us stayed for a week in "Tahitian Breeze", which was comfortable, roomy and very nicely decorated. The WiFi was a nice surprise. The kids liked the pool. We also liked that it was a gated community. The price was a bit high ($3500ish), but it is the nicest place we have stayed in on visits to this part... More

The good: This is a relatively new complex, so the homes for rent are nice and spacious, with open floor plans. The one we stayed in was well equipped. The pool is a large lagoon style pool with plenty of lounge chairs. It has a zero entry end for the kids, small water falls, and goes up to 6' deep.... More

Wonderful! Very spacious and there was enough room for everyone to have their own space. It is located across from the pool and approximately 3 blocks from the beach. We were extremely happy with this rental!

Awesome. Great for a large family.👍👍 The kitchen was fully furnished. She place for shopping and doing fun family activities like go kart racing and parasailing. The parking wasn't accommodating at all. Only room for 2 cars in the drive way and the over flow is always packed
