    The house is located in a perfect spot in a lovely community. It is a short drive to Publix, CVS, restaurants, and entertainment. The private beach is beautiful. When we arrived the elevator was not working but maintenance repaired it the next day. Generally the house is in good condition and clean but vertical blinds were missing slats and bedroom furniture is cheap and scratched. Dinnerware was just adequate for 8 but small appliances are plentiful. . Very nice amenities such as hot tub, beach toys, and warm water shower at base of beach staircase. Management was very helpful.

    The house was absolutely beautiful, the photos need to be updated because the downstairs bunk room actually has two full size bunks and two twins.

    The screens in the upstairs bedroom (3rd) floor need to be replaced but it was overall the PERFECT VACTAION HOME!!

    The vacation home was ready on time. Very spacious. We had 8 adults and 3 children under 4. Location is absolutely perfect. 1st Floor air went out during our stay. I called the Vacation Haven and they had it repaired next day. They were always there when I called. Prompt attention to our needs. We will be returning, although we may need a bigger house next year! Thank you.

    Manager's Response

    These are the reviews we love to read, Colleen! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your recent trip and that MVH took care of all your needs. We pride ourselves in customer service, and it sounds like we hit the mark on your trip! We are thrilled you wish to return and hope you'll reach out to one of our representatives before you book. If you need a bigger house, we can find the perfect option for your group! Thank you so much for your feedback and for choosing MVH. We look forward to hosting you again next year!

    Our vacation rental experience was great. When we got there, the elevator was broken. We called the management co. and they sent someone over the next day but it still could not be fixed. Location was great to shopping and restaurants. The front gate employees were very pleasant and the monitoring of the beaches was much appreciated. The public beaches were very crowded but our private beach was beautiful.

    Manager's Response

    Kathleen, thank you so much for taking the time to share your travel experience with us. We are thrilled to hear you had a great trip and that you spend your days at the beach! We are sorry to hear about the elevator issue but glad it didn't deter from your time on the Gulf. Dolphin Watch is located in a prime area, so we are thrilled you were able to enjoy everything it has to offer! We appreciate your feedback and hope you'll book with us again on your next trip. Until then, be well!

    We stayed at this house in October and loved it so much we did a return visit in June. The second visit was as pleasant as the first and probably even more so since we were familiar with the house and location. Love this place and expect it will now be our annual location for vacation!

    Manager's Response

    That's the sign of a great vacation spot, Patrick! Thank you for coming back so soon! We're thrilled to know you love Dolphin Watch enough to make it your new annual vacation location. Same time, next year!

    The house is amazing. It’s comfortable and spacious. The elevator is a plus! Out of all the beachfront property in Destin this was the least uncrowded and Pristine. It’s close to all the shopping. Everyone keeps asking us where we stayed at since our pictures in the back of the house was always soo beautiful.

    Manager's Response

    You know a good vacation home when it provides the perfect backdrop for your vacation photos! We're so glad you found this getaway spot, and we're thrilled you had such a nice time. Dolphin Watch will be waiting whenever you're ready for your next vacation!

    I chose Dolphin Watch because of it’s beach front location and the exact number of bedrooms our family needed. The house was clean and the elevator was a nice surprise. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing our meals. We had an issue with the dishwasher, but the family bonded over washing the dishes. Any issues or questions were quickly responded to by the management company. We will definitely be staying in Destin again!

    rental experience was very good.
    Might consider activating entry code 5-10 mins early.
    that would not be considered an early check in

    My family absolutely loved our stay at Dolphin Watch! The house was clean and laid out just as expected from the pictures online. We took our 3 kids ranging in age from 11-17 along with the grandparents. The bedroom arrangement along with the elevator was perfect for all. We utilized the beach umbrella and chair service which was excellent. The beach was right out the back door which made going to and from our chairs very easy. All in all we loved the stay and will be booking again for our next trip. We did have a couple of minor issues when we got to the house but those were rectified quickly and professionally!

    We had a wonderful stay. Great property and location. The only negative was poor WIFI. Only good connections were on middle floor. Cell service in the unit is also very poor.
