    Fantastic service from Monica and Presley of Blue Marlin. It was like having our own personal Concierge service nearly 24 hours a day, only a text message away.

    The house was perfect in every way, providing personal space as well as common areas to congregate and make plans for the day. Access to outside seating on the front and back porches was excellent when some of our group wanted to simply sit outside and enjoy the Destin weather.

    Its location is also perfect as it is close to places to purchase provisions, favorite bars, restaurants, as well as the Marina that we use for our fishing expedition.

    This was our third consecutive year staying at the Holiday House. The house is great for large groups. We are able to tie our boat right up to the dock each night so we are ready to go out the next morning. We love the huge deck over the the boat slip as well. The location is perfect!

    James C from North Augusta, SC recommends this vacation rental

    The house had a great layout for 3 families, or more if you don't mind sharing bathrooms. The upstairs tub drain was slow and we had to buy a broom and dust pan. Lots of pots and pans for cooking, but people before us did not clean the pots/pans/dishes/glasses very well. Lots of cabinet space for groceries. Comfy beds! Boat dock was great. Thanks to Blue Marlin Realty for the trailer parking.

    • Manager Responded on 7/22/2017

      James, Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Holiday House. Next time, if you ever need anything like a broom or dust pan, let us know and we would be more than happy to go get one for you! We were more than happy to help with the trailer parking! Let us know when youre ready to come back to visit Destin. -Blue Marlin Vacation Rentals Team-

    Joan O recommends this vacation rental

    Our family chose the Holiday House in Destin, FL as one of the housing accommodations for our 2016 Family Reunion and we had a wonderful time in Destin. The house was clean and spacious, and the five bedrooms adequately accommodated the 13 adults that stayed at Holiday House. Some of the pots and pans need to be replaced and there was a TV in only 1 of the 5 bedrooms but this did not affect our Thanksgiving dinner and fun we shared at Holiday House. Family members enjoyed watching football on the large screen TV, fishing, horseback riding, bowling, etc.

    Many thanks to Monica, our Blue Marlin guest services rep, for her gracious hospitality. She went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our visit was enjoyable and satisfactory.

    Edwin K from Bellevue, NE recommends this vacation rental


    There are 6 of us that come from Nebraska, Kentucky, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, to meet once a year to fish, relax, and enjoy each others company. We have been doing this for 14 years and until this year, we had been renting a condo across the street.

    We decided to try renting a house this year and we will never go back to a condo! This facility allowed almost everyone to have their own bedroom and with three bathrooms, there was never a wait.

    A large living room provided a perfect common area to sit, converse and watch TV. The kitchen was huge and well laid out. It appeared that most, if not all of the walls had been freshly painted and the floors as well as carpets freshly cleaned.

    The only drawback was the back deck area was weathered to the point that you need to wear shoes/sandals to protect your feet from splinters. However, that being said, the front porch, back porch, and the extensive deck over the boat slips gave all of us space to sit, relax, and enjoy the evenings.

    We find that this location is perfect for us as it is centrally located to the bars, restaurants, activities, as well as the marina for the fishing portion of the trip. It is close to the beach, however you do need a code to enter through a private gate.

    Monica, of the reality group, was our "after hours contact". She was very pleasant and professional. She assured that we had what we needed and we were enjoying the facilities. Although there was someone on the property to deal with potential issues as we had with the condo, Monica made it cleare the assistance was simply a phone call away.

    Hopefully this facility will be available again next year when we all meet again for our annual fishing trip, because we all feel that this is our new "Home" in Destin!

We would like to thank you for selecting us as your vacation rental company and we hope that you will book with us again! Have safe travels back home- see you soon! :)

    The house was in excellent conditions, beds were comfortable. Only issue was that property stated 6 rooms, however when we got there there was only 5 due to recent renovations. Monica was excellent in making sure everything was good, i would definitely recommend this property. As a note, it would be awesome if it had a pool :)

    We had so much fun on your family vacation. The house was in a great location which was not too far from big kahuna and the track. Shopping outlet also minutes away. The house is also close to the beach which was awesome. The house itself was nice with plenty of room. The only down fall is, there is only 2 tv is the whole house. My family was a group of 12 so definitely it was a problem when it came to watching television but we stayed pretty much occupied during the day. So it wasn't too bad. Also the staff, Ms.Monica was awesome and helpful.

    excellent had a blast close to everything good price well kept the folks at blue Blue Marlin reality are very customer service oriented I run 6 student housing properties and I thought everything with them and the house was excellent I give it and them a 10 the only few things because I am in maintenance is the front deck has a couple of concerning boards and the exit doors need just a little adjustment but other than that I am definitely coming back and renting that house again. It Was a great bachelor party weekend for my son and his friends and me. He is getting married in April in Saint Petersburg so if you have any ties to that area, I would be interested in looking in to staying in that area as well thanks a lot.

    We took 15 men from our church on a fishing trip to Destin. We stayed four days and were extremely impressed with the location and condition of the home. We are already making plans to book the same home next year. The location of this home is what made it so desirable for us. It is located near the harbor and any restaurant you would need. Also great location for shopping. A short walk across the street and you're on the beach. Can't wait to go back!
