★★★★★ (from Google Reviews)
What a wonderful vacation, all highlighted by the perfect Destin Home Base House you will find. This new in 2018 gem is the perfect place for multiple families to come together, celebrate, and easily reach all of Destin's wonderful attractions.
Chill Pill incorporates the perfect area for connection. The wonderfully appointed kitchen flows into a generous dining area for 20, and is sandwiched by a comfortable TV/Living area on one side and super fun gaming area complete with a beautiful Pool and Shuffle Board tables on the other. From there, walk out 2 sets of double doors to a refreshing pool, outdoor grill area, and outdoor shower when coming back from the beach.
Speaking of the beach... the beach is right across the street and so easy to get to for families with kids of all ages. Must say we got pretty spoiled with our home base at the beach with 2 umbrellas and 6 chairs set p for us each day of our stay. So nice to know you have a spot for your group, even on the most crowded beach days. Wonderful!

Great Property, Great Location!!
“Chill Pill” property by Dana, Destin Florida. What a great property for a large group or family! Steps from the beach. We stayed 3/4 - 3/11/23. All the amenities you could imagine! Two washers and dryers! That was hugh! A trash compactor, ice machine, two refrigerators, pool table, shuffle board, three umbrellas and six chairs set up daily for you at the beach, to name a few. All of the beach toys, from toddlers all the way up to adults with paddle board, kayak etc, etc. Many more beach chairs too! This property has it all! The heated pool was great and the young ones definitely enjoyed the warmth! Each bedroom has a full bath with King beds! Dana, the property manager was awesome, from beginning to end! Never too much trouble to answer any questions or provide personal feedback on local businesses! This was our first visit to Destin. The beach is amazing! If we come back we will definitely stay at the Chill Pill! Keep up the good work!

Great vacation rental!!!!
We have a large family (15+ people) that has rented over 20 vacation homes in the Destin area. This home ranks in the top 5% of our vacation rentals! The location is in the Crystal Beach area and it right across the road from the beach. The Crystal Beach area is a little less crowded than say the Miramar Beach area (which is where we have typically stayed in the past). We were looking for something that had enough bedrooms for our family, close location to the beach but still have a pool for the little ones, and a large gathering area inside the house where our family could gather to wind down the evenings. The pool table and especially the shuffleboard table made for some very fun evenings. This house captured it all. It was a short walk to the beach and we had a private beach which was nice. This is also located next to Henderson State Beach Park. Take a short walk down the beach and it feels like you are the only person on the beach once you get in the Henderson State Beach Park. It is so beautiful and relaxing!! On top of all of this, the price was right and was located in a quaint little neighborhood with white picket fences and very quiet! Additionally, I can't say enough about Dana Flynn (property owner and renter). She was so easy to work with and was so accommodating. If you are looking for a vacation home to rent in the Destin area, this is the house you should be looking into.

Thanks for your kind words Hollis group! The gathering areas of this house make room for everyone! Come back anytime.
Ideal house for multiple families (20+ people)
This house could not be more perfect for 4 - 6 families with kids. Location to the beach is perfect (3 minute walk), large great room with plenty of options for eating/television watching/games and all finishes are the highest quality. House is 5 minutes away from grocery, dozens of restaurants and anything else needed. Dana couldn't be more helpful as well with advice for local amenities.1,000% would stay at this location again.

Sibling long weekend getaway
Very pleased with the Chill Pill property. close to beach access, bikes, beach supplies, 90 degree pool, game room, cleanliness, and interior appointments all really nice. Great big house for everyone to have space. My 4 siblings and their spouses had only positive remarks and comments during the entire weekend on my selection of this property. 5 couples, 5 nights, each cooking a different night with plenty of room and kitchen supplies. Destin and Chill Pill excelled on all levels.

The house, amenities and area were amazing! We had family of all ages staying and there was something for all of us to enjoy. The heated pool was awesome! Plenty of room; large kitchen and living area. My husband recently had hip surgery so we had the ground floor master which worked out great! We look forward to returning!

We really enjoyed our stay. The home is beautifully appointed and well maintained with alot of extra beach toys and supplies for the sand. I loved having chair service on the beach and the table games at the house. Dana is a dream host and is available if needed. I will stay at her properties in the future.

Best Vacation House Ever!!
My buddies and I used this house for our annual golf trip. Everyone in our group decided that we will come back to this house every year from now on. Dana was a pleasure to work with. Plenty of space for all the guys and everyone had their own bathroom. TVs in every room and the sono system was a plus. If you are traveling with a larger group, this is definitely the place to stay.

Scott and the Gang - spot on, this is the perfect group house and everyone loves not having to share a bathroom. Glad y'all enjoyed your time and come see us again! Thanks for staying with us and for your kind words. Makes my day! Dana
Beautiful Home, Great Location, Amazing Property Manager
Where do I begin...this home was not only spacious and filled with all the amenities you would need for your stay but also in a great location. The home is beautiful and the property manager was accommodating and professional. She made sure the home was spotless for us especially during these unprecedented times. The house was stocked with disinfectant and added cleaning supplies. The kitchen utensils were fabulous such as her knives etc. We cooked the whole time we were there and had an amazing time. Her shed outside was filled with paddle boards, rafts, umbrellas, boogie boards etc. The house came with a ton of beach towels and the laundry room had 2 washers 2 dryers and house had two refrigerators. Each bedroom was spacious and cozy. The pool table and shuffle board was so fun. The pool being out back next to old hwy 98 gave for great people watching in the evenings and the bike and walking path was conveniently located in the same area as the pool. Our trip was amazing. Thanks again Dana for sharing your beautiful home with our family.
