We really enjoyed our stay here. The entrance is very welcoming. All the remodel work was done so beautifully. We loved all the bathroom designs. The floorplan worked perfect for our family and friends. We also love this location on Crystal beach. The walk to sushi and coffee is very close and so is shopping.

We are so glad you enjoyed this home, we enjoyed working on the design to make it a special experience for guests. Crystal beach is a local staff favorite and so is Camilles Cafe. We hope you come visit us again soon. Thank you so much!

For 28 years, our girls group of high school friends (class of 1963) have vacationed together in Destin, same week every year. We have between 8 & 12 of us from all over the states gathering each year. We have stayed in many homes on Crystal Beach, Miramar Beach but we like this one best. We'll be back next year, already booked it!!!

Wow this is wonderful to hear!!! Thank you so much! We are so glad you and your friends enjoyed this wonderful home on the Emerald Coast, it truly is a special place. See you next year!

We had a fabulous stay! The views from almost every window - especially upstairs - were incredible! I was pleased to discover there are privacy shades on the windows in the master bathroom around the tub area (which were not visible in online pics). The pool was actually larger in person than we expected from the pictures online. Our entire family really enjoyed being able to use it when the ocean was too rough or we were ready for some down time. Much of the day, at least a portion of the pool is shaded & that was quite nice. The house is so beautiful, tastefully and thoughtfully designed & decorated. The linens and furnishings anre all very high quality and luxurious. The chairs & umbrella set up on the beach was so nice to have access to each day during our stay. The guys set them up each morning at 8 am & took them down each day between 4-5 pm. The chairs were all labeled that they were reserved for our house. We were pleasantly surprised to discover lots of beach/sand toys, floats, etc in the storage space under the deck - and made good use of them. We didn’t use the guest house space, but it is just as beautiful and well appointed as the main home. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed (and then some). The proximity of the home to some of our favorite Destin shopping and dining was really nice as well. We have already booked a second stay at this home for next season (this is literally the first place we’ve ever wanted to stay in a 2nd time in Destin). Highly recommend! *We found the outdoor hose & shower on the stairs from the deck to the beach to be in working order and completely satisfactory for our needs. Additionally, we found the pots & pans in the kitchen to be of nice quality, as were all of the kitchen utensils & appliances.

Thank you so much for your detailed review; it means so much to our hardworking team. When you are happy, we are happy! Thank you again and we hope to see you next season.

This rental was fantastic. Everyone loved the house and the location. It was right on the beach. You could see the dolphins early morning come in so close they would swim around you. We could open our windows and hear the ocean at night (I loved this!). Whole Foods was .7 miles away, definitely within walking distance so we had healthy food choices.
The place was extremely clean and well maintained.
The pool temp was heated to 88 degrees ( we paid to have it heated).
The carriage house was very nice. Not as updated as the main house, however the king bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and nice (just not as modern). It’s totally separate from the house, it’s over the garage. So it’s very quiet and private.
Whenever we had a minor issue, it was resolved the same day.
I typically like to try different places to stay, however this place will be hard to beat!

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience. Star of the Sea is a one of a kind home in Destin for sure! Our team works very hard to ensure that this home is clean, comfortable and beautiful to behold! We look forward to your next stay. Enjoy your summer! - BBV

Plenty of room for everyone and had everything we needed. We were there in January so didn't get to enjoy the beach and pool very much but would love to come back in the summer. Very convenient for dining and any other necessities. Boshamp's is a must on every trip. Definitely plan on a return trip.

Only problem was the continued problems with internet connections in the carriage house, even after Jackie worked so hard. We didn't want to bother her again. Chair company did not deliver chairs till the second day and didn't deliver on the next to last day.

We had 16 people in this house and it never felt crowded! Perfect place for a family vacation. We had one small issue and beyond blue handled it immediately. Great location, short walk from the private pool to the beach. I would suggest that if plan on cooking for a large group to bring your own larger pots which we did. Definitely a prime home and location.

We chose this property for its short walk to the beach, reasonably-sized pool, large covered patio and grill, and all the space our extended family needed. The online description was completely accurate. The house was cleaned and ready on our arrival, and management was responsive to requests we had for minor maintenance issues. What we loved: the ocean views from the kitchen and living room, the ice machine for filling our cooler, 2 refrigerators and dishwashers, comfortable king-sized mattresses, renovations that separate the bunk room from the master suite, safe neighborhood, 2 minute-walk from Camille’s for lattes. One suggestion is to add normal-sized coffee mugs to the kitchen supplies.

Thank you for the great review Karen! This is a gorgeous house in a spectacular location on the beach and it is definitely a favorite for family vacations! We are so happy you loved the property and that you had a great vacation! Come back again! BBV

We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving trip at Star of the Sea. Although all of the renovations were not complete, the ones that were completed were beautiful and well appointed. We can't wait to see the rest of the renovations. The staff was extremely helpful with any issues we had, and the maintenance guy was johnny on the spot. We were disappointed he could not lite the fireplace in the master as the weather was cooler and called for heat in the house. We love a fire! The heated pool was a perfect size for the kids and was a welcome addition to coming up from a cool wind on the beach. Kitchen was well appointed and we found everythinng we needed for a successful Thanksgiving day.

Manager's Response

Good news, Thurmon - we have completed the updates! Please come back to visit us again soon so that you can see all of the wonderful work we have done since your last visit. The bunk room, stairwell, bathrooms and more have been updated. You will love it! We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon. - BBV

Beyond Blue was wonderful to work with. Answered questions quickly and everything was organized well. The home had recently been partially renovated. What was done was stunning and we are sure the final renovations will be spectacular also. Only real issues were the bunk bed room is accessed through the master bathroom/bedroom and the other upstairs bedroom had only a small bathroom that was not connected to the bedroom itself. Gorgeous views, beautiful beach with very helpful attendees and clean private pool. Also access to grocery was close too. It was a wonderful week and family memories were made! Thank you.

Location, beach access, and the home itself was great with just a few things but one issue was a real problem. One of the bedroom closets did not have a rod to hang clothes, the master bedroom door was missing it’s blind which eliminated privacy, but the biggest issue was that the bunk bed room has no separate access . The only access is via the master bedroom and through the bathroom. Essentiall what the owners did is convert the master bedroom closet. This needs to be spelled out to future clients. But otherwise was very happy with our stay.

The home was perfectly located. Being directly on the beach was perfect form our family. Most of the home has been renovated and is beautiful. There were some areas that were not the best workmanship but did not take away from the experience. Plentiful refrigerator space and plenty of ice was very helpful. Overall great experience.

The home is lovely, especially the areas that were remodeled. The rest needs modernizing. Slight flaw; the bunk room only has access through the master bedroom and bathroom. Great pool, outdoor couch, kitchen...

Manager's Response

Hello, and thank you for your review! You will be happy to know that we have completed the remodel! It took several phases to complete the work, but this home looks incredible! It was great before, but now it is spectacular! We felt the same way you do about the bunk room, so we gave it a private entrance. The bunk room and master bedroom are now not connected at all. The layout has been updated and is geared toward large families who need places to gather as well as privacy when needed. Come back and stay with us soon so you can enjoy this wonderful home again (in all of it's new glory!) - BBV
