It felt great to walk my mother-in-law up the main stairs and into the church-like living room. The twenty-foot ceilings are a show-stopper! The grandbabies loved the pool deck and game room, but my husband and I couldn't stop talking about the main bedroom; this was the perfect spot for our Texas-sized family!by Nina G from Houston, TX

JUST WOW! Felt like we stepped into a Miami Beach private estate walking in.

Me and my family of 20 stayed at Off the Hook in Destin Florida and when I tell you everything was awesome... from beginning to end very nice people and quick to respond will most definitely stay here again and again.by Ernestine W from Birmingham, AL

The Sunset Terrace was perfect. We had 6 families with 13 kids, so the 6 bedrooms and 2 bunks rooms were perfect fit. We hardly had to use the 2nd kitchen, and the living/dining area never seemed too busy. The rooftop was awesome for an extra space to relax. Highly recommend for large group!by Todd R from Pittsburgh, PA
8 Bedrooms / 9 Full & 1 Half Bathrooms / 30 Guests
Hypnautic. Snap your fingers if you're looking for a multi-family mansion and the closest thing to beach rental nirvana here on earth. There are wide spaces and nooks n' crannies aplenty in this 8-bedroom vacation home that sleeps a whopping 30 guests. If you have several families in your vacation crew, this is the place for you. Tall ceilings, clean, fresh finishes throughout, and massive, repeat, massive outdoor living areas make this the place to stay when you want to all be together but have enough space to make it comfortable. A beautiful modern pool is top of the list of amenities that also includes a stellar game room, all in the heart of the Destin 30A area, Miramar Beach. It's hypnotizing, really.
Haven't had this much fun since college, plenty of room for all three of our families' children to spread out and enough luxury to razzle dazzle the wives - the pool table room opening on the actual pool deck and outdoor kitchen was our favorite touch! We put some miles on the beach cruisers and barely drove anywhere.by Frank P from New Orleans, LA
9 Bedrooms / 7 Full & 2 Hal Bathrooms / 28 Guests
Tackle Box can accommodate up to 28 guests and your favorite fur baby since this home is also pet-friendly. This large Miramar Beach vacation home was made for big beach reunions since there are seven bedrooms in the main house with two kitchens and wet bars on separate levels, along with two more bedrooms in the guest house, complete with its own kitchen. A huge lagoon-shaped pool sits between the primary residence and a separate guest house. A veranda and two upper-level balconies in the main house face the glorious gulf, which is just steps away.
We had a great time at the tackle box property! Plenty of space for a large group of all ages. Kids loved the pool and the beach. The property is very nice…it is a lot of stairs if you’re on the 3rd floor so be prepared :)by Jon P from Hudsonville, MA
