Stunning beach home with beautiful view

Absolutely thrilled we were able to find the White Whale beach home for our family vacation! There are very few beach rentals that can accommodate a large group and this was able to do so with ease. There were 12 adults who stayed for a week and were never on top of one another. It was amazing!! The decor was fresh and inviting while also giving a sense of relaxation. I loved having easy access to the beach across the street as well as restaurants & shops close by. The kitchen was fully stocked and had every convenience of home. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch with our morning coffee and the pool was a refreshing end to a day at the beach. We could not have asked for a better vacation home for our family and I hope to return again soon!

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home! It was so more than we expected, and so beautiful inside we hardly wanted to leave. Great location. We definitely hope to come back!

Beautiful Beach House!

We had the best time at your beautiful beach house! Everything was perfect!! The kids loved the pool and all the bunks! The adults loved the stocked kitchen, huge family room, and comfy beds! We can't wait to come back!

Beautifully decorated & Great location!

I can't go on about how amazingly decorated this house is. Looks brand-new and very clean! Spacious with tons of areas to relax so you don't feel like you are on top of each other. Great common areas as well. Love having the private pool and easy access to the beach. The owner was incredibly easy to work with and very prompt to answer my questions. Will be booking this house again for our next Destin vacation.

Breathtaking views from a beautifully decorated house!

Our family and friends enjoyed a wonderful vacation at “The White Whale of Destin”! It was my first time renting a house at the beach instead of staying at a condo. From the time that I booked until check-out, the owner (Amy) was awesome! Her attention to detail, finishing touches and follow-up made all the difference!

The pool and tiki house were a nice touch to our outdoor time. The bunks allowed ample room for everyone. The interior colors and décor invited the beauty of Crystal Beach into the house. Even when we were enjoying indoor activities at the house, we still felt like we were on vacation!

Such a beautiful, relaxing time with family and friends. The only complaint I have is that we had to leave too soon! Until next time!

Perfect vacation

Perfect vacation. Love the Carriage house. Walked to restaurants and ate out and shopped in Destin Commons when it rained. Best lunch and bloody Mary's were a walk away at Camille's.

big family house, Really 2 Houses!

We were in Destin for a short family vacation bringing all ages together. This house worked very nicely because the teens were able to use the game room and pool area and my parents had a main floor bedroom. My sister's families split the other areas but we still had plenty of room to come together. Really close to the beach and the weather was just perfect for our trip! Amy was helpful, too. We would love to return!
