About the owner: Beach Reunion has been managing vacation rentals on the Emerald Coast for sixteen years. We specialize in large luxury beach homes sleeping anywhere from 8 to 38 people. We are a boutique business with vacation rentals primarily along Scenic Gulf Drive in Destin & Miramar Beach, Florida. Our program proudly features a coastal collection of large group homes, smaller cottage style homes and a group of gulf front condos.

Our homes are located in Frangista Beach, Destiny East, Destiny West, Destiny by the Sea, Emerald Waters, Shipwatch, Crystal Beach and other prestigious neighborhoods. Many are Gulf Front homes directly on Scenic Gulf Dr.

Our collection of large homes feature beautiful swimming pools, summer kitchens, media rooms, custom bunk rooms and king suites with private bathrooms. Our guests come year after year for family reunions, golfing trips, weddings, and corporate groups. Our amenities include golf cart rentals, beach chair services as well as our concierge services for golf, dining and wedding planning.

In 2018, we entertained over 11,000 guests in our 60+ properties and over 100 weddings. Many of our guests have been staying with us year after year for five to ten years and rent different homes in our program as we build, upgrade and add new properties.

Our goal is to provide superior service due to our limited geographical area and upscale properties. We strive not to be the biggest but the BEST! We deliver a vacation experience that keeps guests returning and creating memorable experiences. As our motto says; “Creating Traditions Year After Year.”

Guestbook comments from the host:

I didn't realize upon booking this proper, just how close it actually is to the beach. I thought it was a ten minute walk, but it was more like 3. The property has views from the master bedroom, kitchen, almost every window looks out on something beautiful. I now have colleagues that want to rent this property because of the pictures that I shared. Such a wonderful experience. Our whole party made memories for a lifetime.

We had a large group of family and friends from Illinois and loved our stay in Destin. The house was perfect, the neighborhood felt safe, and the hosts were very accommodating. Can’t say enough wonderful things about the location – amazing to be on the pond and a quick & easy walk to the beach, which was very family friendly. The Crab Trap provides a fun beach access with a playground for the kids and an easy-access restroom. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

Rats in Bella Vita

Rented Bell Vitta 4661 Destiny Way. After spending the night we discovered the house had rats. One ran across the floor and we tried to catch it. We notified Beach Reunion as I was on my way out to the golf course. The owner contacted me and said they thought they had gotten rid of the rats and he had another house available. My girlfriend looked at Calypso and Santini houses and was told there were no other options. So Bella Vita had a very nice open view area and a pool with a hot tub but had rats. The net rental cost was about $640 per day. We ended up in Calypso, since we had no choice, which had a completely blocked view, no hot tub and was much farther from the beach. The owner initially offered me $300 and later required I sign an agreement not to post anything on any kind of review. I told him that the $300 was unacceptable. He became argumentative and insultive and implied somehow it was our fault and we were in error. The vacation cost nearly $10,000 with travel and everything and I invited my new girlfriends family. I was so embarrassed. I would not recommend this company and would never use them again. I have rented vacation homes for over 20 years and never come close to such a terrible experience.

Owner response

Hello Paul,Although we hate how the results ended we were only happy to assist you. When you had noticed the issue of the rat at hand ( being by a lake they are native to the area) we were more than happy to try to find you reasonable accommodations that would satisfy both invested parties involved. Calypso and Santorini are both larger luxury vacation homes. We did our best to meet all your demands and requests but just were not able to meet them all. We wish you all the best.
