Here are reviews from our guests (includes reviews of Daniel Dunes taken from other listing sites)
Annual Family Beach Vacation
Loved our stay at Daniel Dunes! Our family of 9 people had lots of space and the garage full of play equipment (including beach, bikes, and ping pong) made this beach visit very enjoyable (with no extra expense)! This was our 6th annual family beach vacation – we have tried 4 other locations (in Destin) and finally discovered THE one for us! We have already reserved Daniel Dunes for 2020!!!

Great vacation rental!
My family of 15 had a great stay at Daniel Dunes rental. It was a “best of both worlds” stay because the beach is in the front and the lake is in the back. We biked, kayaked in the lake and the beach, as well as paddle boarding at the beach. All were great additions to the rental. Our chairs and umbrellas were sitting out waiting on us every day. Even though the walk to the beach is only steps, the rental came with the absolute BEST beach cart we have ever seen or used. Very large to fit floats, bags, coolers, and a box of beach toys and the best part was that it was super light and easy to push. The pool was also a great addition, especially for the kids at night. The owners are very responsive and try to meet all your needs. Hope to definitely be back one day.
Very Family Oriented Home
We had a wonderful week at Daniel Dunes! This home is very family oriented and offers a wide variety of beach and lake toys so that you do not have to bring yours. The new beach buggy is SO helpful and makes the short walk to the beach a breeze with its huge capacity to load up all the beach gear you need for the day. Plus the owners have included three sets of umbrellas and chairs. The owners are very responsive if there is anything that needs to be addressed. We had all of our extended family with us and there was plenty of room for everyone to play, sleep and eat, especially with the wonderful porches and the private pool. Thank you to the Daniels for providing such a wonderful retreat!
An Awesome Week!
Five Stars for Daniel Dunes!! We had 15 people (10 adults and 5 children) staying in the house and it was an awesome week! The house had ample room for everyone and the separate suite in the basement was perfect for the couple without children who needed a break now and then from the chaos. We utilized all the extras in the garage daily (ping pong, kayak, paddle board, beach cart, sand toys, beach chairs, life jackets, bicycles, etc, etc). Having lots of options for the crowd was delightful. We loved loved loved having 6 beach chairs with 3 umbrellas set up for us daily at the beach. What a special treat not to have to cart SO much to the beach each day. There’s plenty of shopping and restaurants within an easy drive and a nice little coffee shop within walking distance. The area is very active with families all enjoying themselves and in no way did I feel any stress from loud or raucous neighbors. There are lots of comfortable sturdy lounge chairs around the pool and enough seating on the decks to accommodate us all for dinner. The views are very good and offer plenty of happy sunshine to float into your living environment. We had one small issue with a bike lock and Marina was easy to get hold of and quick to offer a couple of options for solution. Overall a very comfortable, safe and enjoyable week for us all.
