Property Description

Stairway to Hammock Heaven Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

The welcoming yard of this Destin vacation rental dotted with blooming buds, white benches and hedged by a picket fence all seem to say “C’mon on in and stay a while!” True to southern tradition, Stairway to Hammock Heaven boasts not only a cheerful front porch with chairs but many other cozy porches and balconies ideal for sipping tea and catching up on old times. In fact, the crowning glory of this spacious home is the crow’s nest balcony perched at the very top- four hammock chairs sway in the wind and offer beautiful glimpses of all of Destin and the Emerald Coast beyond.


All of this and we haven’t even mentioned the sundrenched pool deck or the gorgeous interior yet! It’s impossible not to fall in love with the beach meets chic décor where perfectly placed furnishings and accents gleam with nautical inspiration.


Plus, outstanding features like stone countertops in the large kitchen home to a breakfast nook overlooking the pool, easy-to-clean tile and hardwood floors, a full laundry room and a separate ice maker will all ensure that guests are comfortable, clean and well cared for.


Each bedroom in Stairway to Hammock Heaven seems to have an invigorating effect with colorful bedding and eye-catching art- sure to put a hop in your step as you walk to the beach! Moreover, the master suite has the added luxury of an oversized bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath.


While it’s indisputably lovely to stay at Stairway to Hammock Heaven, it’s equally as nice to explore its surroundings! The beach is within walking distance and the Destin Commons, golf courses and grocery stores are a minute away in the car.

Testimonials

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME
by Michael M.
★★★★★ 5 of 5
By far the best house- HANDS DOWN. Closeness to the beach made each day better than the last. The house was spotless and very efficient. Gorgeous kitchen/dining area, large family room and poolside was the icing on the cake. The hammocks and the view from above added to the relaxing atmosphere. The ice machine in the laundry room is a great idea. Our only issue was the lack of a separate bathroom on the first floor. Going through a bedroom at various times to use that bathroom was not a hassle, but was inconvenient at times. This is by far the place to be!

Great family reunion
by Charlie And Tap
★★★★★ 5 of 5
Our family has rented Stairway to Hammock Heaven for several years now. The home is well maintained and the kitchen is its best feature. We all gather in the evenings for a family dinner and the space for serving and sitting is outstanding. The children love the pool and often swim in the evenings while the adults visit and unwind. The neighborhood also has a community pool that has a section that is shady which the grandparents love after being in the hot sun at the beach. The Newman Dailey staff is very efficient as well as friendly and go out of their way to make certain our stay is always hassle free. So many memories in this home and we look forward to making more next year.

This is a gorgeous home and we couldn't be happier to have found it to spend our vacation in. We had 4 adults and 5 kids - plenty of space and things to do for everyone. We are so glad we found the beaches of Destin it is now our new favorite place to be. And this house is part of our new "love". We loved everything about it - decor, pool, the hammock heaven is fantastic. The balconies/porches where many talks were had and books read. And the kitchen has everything! Thank you for creating such a gorgeous setting for our Summer 2018 memories.

★★★★☆ 4 of 5
The house was beautiful. Plenty of room for everyone. We had 11 people, including 5 grandchildren ages 15 to 6 mos. All of them absolutely loved the pool. We did a lot of cooking “in” and the kitchen was great for that. The only negative we had was that the pots and pans were not very clean when they were put away and most of the cookie sheets were very rusty. Also, when we came back from the beach, we could not get the outside shower to work. Overall, a great time was had by all. We will definitely be back!

★★★★☆ 4 of 5
This a great home and we had a wonderful stay. We loved all the different balconies and sitting outside on the porch with the pool in the evenings. It is a very short walk to the beach and even shorter walk to the community pool. The only drawbacks were that there wasn't a community bathroom on the bottom floor. We had to go into one of the other people we were staying with rooms to use the downstairs restroom or go upstairs. That was a little inconvenient and the pool was smaller than expected. Other than that, it was wonderful!!

As usual (2nd year) the stay was wonderful. Hammock Heaven is a great home in a great location. The only problem was the outside trash must have not been put out the previous Friday as the can was full. Also, the can was split open in several places and I called on Monday to get it replaced but it never was. Otherwise 5 stars.

Submitted on Jun 25, 2016

Thank you so much for posting your review. We are sorry for the problems you had with the trash and trash receptacle upon arrival. Unfortunately the previous guest must have forgotten to put trash out on Friday for pick up by Waste Management. Thankfully we do have a system in place for trash pick up on the weekends so we can ensure our new arriving guests do not have to deal with the previous guests trash. We have a vendor who removes trash at all rental homes on Saturdays and/or Sundays, we do this as courtesy for our guests every weekend. We did confirm with Waste Management a new receptacle is on order however it can take 7-14 business days for the replacement receptacle to be delivered. We are grateful despite the initial trash issue, you were able to enjoy your vacation and still rate your stay and this home 5 stars. We look forward to your next stay with Newman-Dailey Resort Properties.

The week just flew by. Great friends, great weather, and fun beach time! A couple big storms blew through, but that just added to the excitement of the week. We saw a sea turtle at the pier, a hammerhead shark there also. Some dolphins befriended us the day we rented a boat and went to crab island. We loved hanging out in the hammocks! It was a perfect spot for watching fireworks. We were treated to 4 sky writing planes on Friday evening....what a sight! We enjoyed meals in and out....Pompano Joe's is what we always do on our first or second night. This year we tried a new place...Mimmos. It's Italian and very good! Stairway to Hammock Heaven is great and it always serves us well....It's an awesome place to stay!

Beautiful Home
★★★★☆ 4 of 5
We loved the house, plenty big enough for 7 of us. The kitchen was great although we really didn't cook while on vacation but could have. Surprised that there wasn't extra plastic garbage bags which we usually find in other vacation homes. The pool was small but perfect for the grand kids, ages 2 and 4, BUT....... the pool person came to clean the pool on the evening of our first day when the kids had just started swimming so he offered to come back "tomorrow". He never did show up and by day 3, the pool was getting dirty. We made a couple of calls to Newman Daily and were told that they would send someone out. Besides the pool issue, everything else was great. We loved the oversized wagon which we used to tote all our stuff to the beach, the beds were comfortable, internet wifi worked great and they even had a Netflix account so the kids watched their favorite movies in the evenings.

My family stayed 8 nights at "Stairway to Hammock Heaen" over the Christmas holiday. Despite the cool dreary weather we had a great time. The house exceeded our highest expectations. The newly renovated kitchen with the large island served us well for cooking, dining and socializing. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes and utensils for us to prepare meals. The bedrooms were comfortable and easily accommodated our family of nine. We especially like the board games and puzzles, TV's in all of the bedrooms, gas grill, separate ice maker, and lots of outdoor furniture. We really got the impression that the owners really care about the house and you are staying in their personal home. upon arrival the house was clean and bright with lots of decorations that give the home a personal touch. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood with only a short walk to the beautiful sugar sand beaches of Destin as well as being convenient to shopping. We hope to return again in Spring or Summer!

Stairway to Hammock Heaven is a beautiful home! A total of 8 of us stayed a week at this beautiful property. The home meet all all needs. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed to prepare meals. The closeness to the beach made for quick trips! the only problem we encountered was the pool not being warm enough and it making a gurgling sound. Newman-Dailey did respond promply to our need. We felt like the pool guy emptied too much water out and did not add enough when he left because adding water made it much warmer and the gutgling stopped. We would definitely stay here again! thank you for sharing your home with us!

There was plunty of room for use to relax and the beach was not a fare walk from the house. The wagon that is provided was great. It held eveything we need to take to the beach and rolled on the sand easily. Our family loved staying here and are looking forward to coming back.

This house was truly a home for a week. It exceeded our expectations. The decor was so inviting. It offered many extras that made it even more special. The board games were very handy on the rainy days. The beach wagon was fantastic. The ice maker was the king of the extras! We had a group of 10 and had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was stocked great including several pitchers and baking pans and cookie sheets that are often overlooked. The neighborhood was beautifully landscaped and quiet. we felt very safe in this area. We called the office for a few things and they were very prompt, courteous, and pleasant. We just can't say enough about the house and the Newman-Dailey Company. Don't hesitate on reserving this house.

Stairway to Hammock Heaven is our favorite vacation house so far (this was our third trip to Destin) and we hope to return there frequently. The house had everything we needed, the patio and pool were fantastic, the balconies and (of course) the hammocks added alot of character and fun, and the location (proximity to beach and restaurants/shopping) could not have been better. It truly was a perfect week, made better by the perfect house!

The stay was nice, but the pool was diappointing
by Kelly
★★★☆☆ 3 of 5
We went down over the Thanksgiving holiday. The proximity to the beach was good and the house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was a great size and we enjoyed using the grill. The factor that brought the whole experience down was the pool. We paid for it to be heated and it wasn't when we showed up. We called the office and they sent some one over to fix it. The heat was turned on, and then for some reason, around 4:30 in the afternoon it went off. The next day we called again to get the heat fixed in the pool. The guy showed up, didn't have what he needed so he left and never came back. While everything else was nice, the fact that we didn't have a heated pool at night was a real let down for the family considering we chose the house beacause of its heated pool.

Thank you so much for posting your review. It is unfortunate that the pool heater and water temperature negatively affected your stay at this beautiful home but I am pleased to report we have had no further issues with the pool or pool heater, this seemed to have been an isolated event. This is a wonderful home and we want to make sure your vacation experience is memorable. We look forward to your next stay with Newman-Dailey Resort Properties. Amy Turner – Property Manager

We had fantastic weather. Visited the Gulfarium, caught crabs, built sand castles, golfed at the Links and plenty of shopping. The wagon you provide for the beach was a Godsend and the icemaker was heavily utilizied. We really enjoyed our stay, the pool, the hammocks and the house. When we come back we will be staying here again!! Thanks for letting us enjoy your home. Pashia's & Bohnerts Families Guest book

The weather was hot, we swam, shopped, played games and enjoyed our time together. We discovered our love to be together again. The house is beautiful, nothing missing. The kids really enjoyed being at your home versus a condo. We love Destin and come every year for 25 years. Thank you for sharing your home. Guest book

Ideal family vacation

★★★★★ 5 of 5
We started our day in the hammocks and ended our day in the hammocks eating popcorn. We swam, swam and swam even in the rain. While we were here we built sand castles and visited the Naval National Air Museum in Pensacola. Loved having the ice machine for our fresh brewed tea and lemonade. The house is very well equipped and ideal for a family vacation. Memories abound with my 3 year old and 7 year old grand daughters. Thank you. Guest book

Everyone we came in contact with was super. We had a problem with wasps and they took care of immediately. The alarm on the back door came off and they came to fix it right away. The house was in perfect shape, everything was great. Our grandchildren were so impressed. I definitely will go back.

Pure Heaven

Hammock to Heaven is pure Heaven The community we were in looked like a dream land. Every house had some unique architecture and the colors were mostly all pastels. Each house also had a white picket fence and some like hours had swimming pool. Our house was absolutely beautiful and spotless. We stayed in the master bedroom upstairs which what very generous and also had a porch that led up to the stairway to hammock heaven. While in hammock heaven, so have a birds eye view on the entire subdivision as well as portions of the bay. Since we had a very laid back schedule, no one ever felt rushed. Kim and I walked down to the beach which was 1 block away.The sand was like walking on sugar and the water was Crystal clear. The house also came with gas grill, so the kids cooked for the adults one evening and the adults cooked for the kids one evening, Great time, great food, great friends!

What a great place to stay! I came down with my son and two of his friends and had the most relaxing time. Destin is a great place to visit. Stairway to Hammock Heaven is the best!! Everything about the house is top notch. I loved the hammock chairs and spent many afternoons and evenings up there. Having the pool at the house was a bonus although it would have been better if we could have heated it. Overall, I LOVED Stairway to Hammock Heaven and would stay there again any time I come to Destin.

Newman Dailey gives great service and their customer service is excellent. The house overall was good but a few items need a little attention. Paint peeling on cabinet drawers needed painting, bench in kitchen needed repair, upstairs tvs did not work, and all mattresses need replacing. The location was great near the beach. I liked best the great space of the house.
