Coral Cabana - May 2011 This was our first "pet friendly" vacation and the Coral Cabana has set the standard for future vacation rentals. The house was perfect, the location to the beach was perfect, the golf cart was perfect, the pool was perfect and the hosts were almost perfect (Rick wears Marine blue instead of Army green). The grill was clean and very efficient. We enjoyed grilling the steaks, shrimp, triger fish and hamburgers. The Cabana was very well stocked with all the appliances, small and large, that would need to really kick back and enjoy a vacation. During our 17 day stay we had family members drop in and all said the accomodations were perfect. Our two Westies also a great time with a yard to romp in and being able to stay with us and not the doggie motel. Rick and Debbie, you made it possible for us to have a wonderful time. Thank you for everything. Mike and Karen

Thank you Rick for a lovely welcome here, you were a warm, friendly smiling face! A special thanks also to Todd for fixing the few minor items and sharing his love of Destin! But the most praise goes to our friends the "B's" for allowing us to spend a wonderful week in their lovely home! We had beautiful weather, great friends and the beach is awesome! God has certainly blessed Destin. We certainly will visit again!
This house was perfect. The outside living area was wonderful. Fit our family great. Golf cart was great too! We will be back. Thank you p.s. Our pups loved it too
This house is perfect for families. It's a comfortable home to stay in for all of us! The pool was a bonus, the little ones loved it! We had a wonderful time with 5 kids and 4 adults, plenty of space. We really enjoyed ourselves!
The Wardlows & The Castros, Houston, TX
This was the perfect get-away. Absolutely one of the best places I've ever stayed. The chance for some peace & quiet. Great weather and a wonderfully good time, so was the house! Thanks
The Myers, Columbus, GA
Awesome two weeks! What a wonderful home, pool, outdoor living space..... and the golf cart!! We enjoyed entertaining friends - layout made it so easy and comfortable. Our adult children and grandkids came for a week in the middle of our stay. It could not have worked out any better. The pool was a saving grace with the grandchildren! Even the two stormy days didn't deter our enjoyment! Thank you so much for making such a wonderful home available! Can't wait to come back!
We had a great time in this beautiful home! Perfect location, close to everything. I am the GM for Blue Sky Cabin Rentals in North GA so I know a great rental when I see one and you made the grade for sure! We will definitely be back, thank you for opening your home to others. Kuddo's to the house keepers! Nice & clean.

We stayed at the Pineapple Cabana earlier this month and had a great time. I just wanted to thank you for the perfect vacation. The house was great and had everything we needed As a hospitality professional I really appreciate your house with all the great amenities, as well as the service you provided us. Thanks again for a great trip, hope to see you next year.
My daughter, son, granddaughter and grandson had such a great time. It was so homey & comfortable. We've decided we will book for next year, it was AWSOME! Thank you.
IL and GA
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your gorgeous home! Its so nice and fits us perfectly. We had so much fun in the pool. The back yard is so pretty. The good weather was good for the kids. They swam the whole time! Thanks again.
Beautiful home! We loved it! First time in Destin and we will be back. Loved the location, pool, back yard is very inviting. House is decorated very beautifully and was very clean. Thank you for sharing you beach home! We really made a lot of family memories here. We love Southern Comfort! The Moseley's 2014 Ft. Worth, Texas

Dear Rick and Debbie, Ocean Breeze - Jan 1 to 31 - A Beautiful Home! This is my third year vacationing in Destin in one of your beautiful homes. The first year I stayed in Ocean Breeze and was delighted at not only the location (so close to the beach & shopping!), but with the home and yard as well. The second year (2014), I booked a month in Southern Comfort, as Ocean Breeze was a bit larger than needed for just me and my dog and I figured Iíd try a different, smaller home. When I went to book Southern Comfort again, for the 2015 season, I saw it had been already been reserved by another person, so I figured that since I was happy with Ocean Breeze, I would return to this home for my third year in Destin. Well, when I arrived in Destin a few days ago, I drove right past the house that I had previously spent a month in!! I didnít even recognize it! Besides the fresh, new look of the outside of the home, I was amazed at the beautiful new driveway! I continued to be amazed upon entering the home and seeing the beautiful changes made to the interior. The house was nice before, but now it is simply beautiful. Very tastefully decorated with new floors and new furniture; the house manages to be both comfortable and elegant. I want to thank both you and Debbie, and the homeowner for allowing me to stay in such a beautiful home. But even more importantly, I would like to thank you for allowing me to stay here with my loyal companion, my dog Willow. Destin is truly beautiful, but you all have made the experience so much more pleasant by providing a gorgeous home that is impeccably serviced and maintained. You and Debbie have made Easy Street a friendly, rather ďinformal,Ē yet, professional company that provides a hassle-free and easy service to rent beautiful homes in Destin. Thank you again for the wonderful service you provide. Sincerely, Karen D
Tannehill, Miami Lakes
Amazing family gathering location ! ? ? ? ? ? We had our two older sons fly in from Ohio, accompanied by one son's wife, their baby boy, and the other son's girlfriend. We drove up from Miami Lakes with our 10 and 17 year old and our puppy. We all arrived Monday, December 26th and just left today, December 31st. Wonderful, clean, completely accommodating home. Short walk to the beautiful beach, great back yard and pool too! Rick and Debbie are awesome to deal with. The only drawback, we had to leave ??. We ?? Pineapple Cabana!
Weyer, Sun Prairie
Great time was had by all. We spent all of February at the Cottage by the Sea and our son, daughter-in-law and grandson joined us for a week. It is a great location and close to everything. There are several close beach accesses with parking and one with public restrooms. The Cottage was clean and had everything we needed (except a pizza cutter - ha-ha). We particularly enjoyed the front porch. While it was too cool to swim, the pool deck was a very comfortable place to enjoy the warm Florida sunshine. The managers were extremely easy to work with, both in scheduling and in responding to our needs while we were there. We had a minor maintenance issue that we advised the managers about by email on a Friday evening. The manager's son was there first thing Saturday morning to take care of the issue! We were very impressed with the prompt service.
Love this Karma. Love, Love, Love this "Karma" rental. It passed all expectations I had. We enjoyed snorkeling at the jetties and parasailing. Husband took the kids on a fishing excursion. The shopping was great and I even took my own excursion to the linen store in Panama City. The have decorated it beautifully and stocked it with every thing you could possibly need. Felt safe in the neighborhood and would definitely tell all my friends to stay here.
Great Times! This is our second year renting a vacation home from Easy Street. We are made welcome and comfortable from start to departure and after. The home is well furnished and one is relaxed immediately the front door is opened. We are already looking forward to next springs rental experience! Many thanks from all our family members!
Stephanie Fuesting, Illiniois
Cottage by the Sea May 2011 I have absolutely no complaints about Cottage by the Sea! My family and I stayed here (with no pets) and it was the perfect setting. The beach was close enough to walk to, the pool was great for days we just wanted to chill out and the house made us feel right at home. The photos were very true to life. Ahh, I miss Destin so much! I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family! What a great vacation! Thanks so much! 5 out of 5 rating.
JS, Hammond LA
Beachinit - June 2011 We did enjoy our stay. The house was great and everything you wanted to do was within a 5 mile radius. It was all the comforts of home but away from home. We will be back in the future. Thanks and God Bless. JS
Michell and Robert, Keller TX
Beachinit Ė June 2011 We just wanted to send a quick note letting you know that we had an awesome family vacation @ Beachinit last week (June 11-18). We loved the golf cart, and we wanted to let Rick know that we did fix the radio in the golf cart. We are so happy we rented from you again, and hope to be back again next year! Thanks again for everything ---- the house was stocked with everything we could ever want! Michelle and Robert Keller, TX

Southern Comfort Ė June 2011 As expected, Southern Comfort was another great property offered by Rick and Debbie Scali of Easy Street Pet Friendly Vacation rentals. This was our third vacation with them and everytime we have been more than satified with out accomodations. It's always great to take the four-legged babies too! Southern Comfort offered the hot tub which was enjoyed and the privacy of your own pool with some of the properties is a great plus. You spend hours at the beach during the day and come home and enjoy the rest of the day and evening at the pool. But don't forget to visit all the great ammenities and fun that Destin offers. Thank you for another great vacation and we will be returning soon. We have recommended your properties to lots of our friends and some are scheduled to visit.
Kim and Friends, New Orleans
Ocean Breeze - July 2011 This was our second girls retreat to Destin and the second time we've rented with Rick and Debbie. The house was amazing and the beach is at the end of the street. The neighborhood is very peaceful and everything was just perfect. Thanks again for making our vacation a restful and wonderful experience.
Beth Frey, Lake Charles, LA
Coral Cabana - September 2013 - Our 5th year with Rick & Debbie at the Coral Cabana, they are both like family to us now. We had a fantastic, relaxing stay. Such a beautiful house with a nice open floor plan, very clean and great extras. It's like being at home in paradise....from the private pool wireless internet, DVD player, TVs throughout the house to the gas grill and outdoor seating areas. Love how the house is so close to the beach and restaurants but, located in such a quiet location as well. The tricked out cart to head to the beach on was so fantastic to have at our disposal to use. What makes it so much more relaxing is being able to bring our pups Reilly, Elvis & Lucy--they had a great time too and their own private yard to play in. We will definitely be back next September for our 6th year at the Coral Cabana. Beth Frey Kellie Corman Reilly, Elvis & Lucy Lake Charles, LA

Southern Comfort - Oct 2011 I can't believe this is the same house, we stayed here last year and loved it, but now it's like a brand new house. Loved the new kitchen with granite counter tops, all new furniture, and "Miranda", our very spoiled dog even liked her new pet yard. Great job Rick and Debbie. We'll definitely be back, hopefully this summer. PS we all liked the hammock in the back yard too.

Grand Palms Villa May 2012 - Wanted to let you know that my wife, kids and I all had a great time while staying at the Grand Palms location in Destin, FL. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, my wife loved the decor, kids had an awesome time with the pool/hot tub and super excited to sleep in the bunk bed room. Location and all the features of the home fit our necessities for the week we spent. The golf cart was a great plus to gain access to the community clubhouse/pool area, and we enjoyed reserving the movie theatre 2x's. Having the cart gave us great ability to go to the beach easily and shuttle the complimentary chairs, beach umbrella, water toys provided. The house was everything we provided, service/response from Easy Street Rentals was great, and Rick's visit was insightful for those helpful hints of the area. The neighborhood was safe, quiet, quaint and all around wonderful. Destin is a great family oriented, clean, and fantastic family vacation area. We look forward to hopefully returning for future vacations and upon doing so would love to stay again. Regards, K Hileman
Royal Palms Villa - Jul 2012 This was a GREAT house for my family! The location could not be more perfect. About three houses away from beach!!!! We had no idea we would actually be so close. Pool and outside kitchen kept us in the water all day long. Lots of spare sheets, pillows etc to accommodate as many people as you have. The house is cuter than the pictures. There is also an ocean "view" from the front porch :). House was well maintained and well stocked. Mould absolutely rent here again.
Judy and Paul Knight, Dahlonega GA
Coral Cabana - Jan 2013 We spent the month of January 2013 at Coral Cabana and loved it! It was great being close to the beach, yet in our private neighborhood enclave. The house was large,very clean, well furnished, perfect sized fenced-in yard for our dog..and we loved the double-sink master bathroom! A perfect spot for you and your pet(s)!!!
Pineapple Cabana - October 2013
"This is an awesome rental house!"
The entire process from making reservations to check out was smooth. This house provided ample room for our entire family to spread out & have their own space. Having a private pool in the backyard was especially nice. The golf cart provided easy transport of all our beach paraphernalia to & from the beach a breeze. Easy walk to the beach up the drive & across the road. This home comes packed with all the cooking equipment you could possibly need. Very easy to find & close to everything we wanted to do. The host was very gracious. The only things I didn't like was on the departure prep instructions there was an item to not put the comforters in the dirty laundry, they would decide if they needed cleaning. And we experienced problems getting the internet to connect consistently. We didn't bring a pet although the home is pet friendly, there were no odors or pet stains at all to indicate pets ever stayed there! All in all this home is a wonderful stay & we would all highly recommend it.
Karma was Amazing! We truly enjoyed this house and all of the beautiful decor. We definitely plan on returning next summer! August 2016
Mike Fletcher, Collierville, TN
Coconut Palms - The 2 houses are a great setup for multiple families. We had 14 people with us for three of the seven days we stayed at Coconut Palms and we never felt crowded. There is enough room for everyone to gather and eat and plenty of beds for sleeping. The children (& adults) really enjoyed the pool and outdoor area (patio, music, grill). The golf cart was an exceptional amenity and made trips to the beach very easy. Mr. Scali delivered a new blender to the house when we realized that there wasn't one. That's service you just don't get every day! I will definitely recommend Coconut Palms to friends and family and look forward to a return visit in the future.
Mary Watson, Montgomery, AL
Pineapple Cabana - This was our second year at the Pineapple Cabana. I have stayed at several other rental houses in the Destin area and this by far is the BEST house I have ever stayed in. The house is so wonderfully set up and stocked. Rick and Debbie are the most gracious hosts! My husband and I truly do feel like you are going home when we are on our way there. This year we were overjoyed that our grandchildren could come and stay with us for a couple of days. We had a blast in the pool. And all of the beach supplies that are at the house....WOW. They thought they were at a store! Most of all we love this house because our four legged babies can travel with us. There is nothing better than sitting on the swing in the morning with a cup of coffee and having a puppy running in the grass toward you! There is a saying "A rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day anywhere." The person that said this must have also visited the Pineapple Cabana! See you next year!
Sonya Taylor, Powder Springs, GA
Vacation Paradise - We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was very nice and large enough for us to spread out. The short walk to the beach was perfect. Just far enough to get the sand off our feet by the time we were back. It was a relaxing and enjoyable stay and I would recommend this place to anyone.
Sloan Family, Franklin, Tn
Aqua Terra - Wow! What a great surprise in finding your beautiful home with all of its convenient accommodations upon our arrival to Destin - better than we could have possibly expected! Rick, you were absolutely wonderfully warm, not only on the phone, but in person as well, as you endeared yourself to both my daughters who worked with you to set up this memorable vacation and my Dad who had the pleasure of meeting you during our stay. I would highly recommend a stay at not only this gorgeous home, but at any one that you might offer, Rick, as you are easy to work with, you think of the convenient details for your guests stay, and you are so generous in your hosting. We had a splendid time and can't wait to see you next year! Merry Christmas, Sloan and zoo crew (to include our appreciative pets who got to join us too - yippee!)
Amy Kines, Fishers, IN
Banana Cabana - This property was perfect for our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids)! The space inside was more then plentiful - we never felt crowded. The pool area was also spacious. The house is in tip top shape. The short walk to the beach was no problem. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well. We had a 5 star vacation thanks to the Banana Cabana!
Andy Hobik, Miles, MI
Ocean Breeze - What a wonderful vacation home, huge private pool, fabulous backyard, close to the beach and a golf cart. The girls and I loved the beach and loved the pool, but we really loved the golf cart. I would recommend Ocean Breeze to anyone, in fact we have already told our friends when we got home. The hardest part of the whole vacation was leaving, but we'll be back.
Matt and Lisa Mumma, Franklin, TN
Southern Comfort - Dear Rick and Debbie, Thank you so much for our vacation again. This is our third year and we have had a great trip every time. The house was clean. We loved having the fenced in yard for our dogs. We loved having the in-ground pool with the extra bonus of a hot tub. The hot tub was nice because we used it every morning early and at the end of each day. We liked having the golf cart. It was nice being able to use that on the side streets for getting items to the beach, going to restaurants or just shopping. We could not have asked for better weather. Sorry we did not get to do dinner with you guys this year, but next time we will. Thanks again for setting up the photo session with the dogs. We really enjoyed this trip and house. Can not wait to come again.
Renee, Denham Springs, LA
Beachinit - I WILL NEVER STAY IN A CONDO AGAIN!! We had the most amazing experience staying at "Beachinit". Who would have thought a rental property would have so many personal touches to make a stay so enjoyable? The house is absolutely amazing and stocked with anything you could possible imagine needing. We had a blender for daiquiris (poolside, of course!), ironing board and iron, even an egg slicer for our egg salad sandwiches! There was not ONE thing we reached for that was not there! That is way more than I can say for the swanky condo we normally stay in. The house is so clean; my mom actually asked me if I was sure we could have pets! The pool is gorgeous and private and the owner was even kind enough to include rafts, floaties, etc. to enjoy. One of our favorite experiences was the GOLF CART!!!! We had so much fun exploring the area, going to the beach, visiting the different shops and restaurants, even getting hot dogs and ice cream! I can not say enough about our amazing experience, if you are thinking about visiting BEACHINIT, don't think, just BOOK IT! You will have the most amazing time of your life. If you have pets or donít, this place is amazingly spotless. Mr. Rick Scali is awesome and it was a treat just visiting with him. We look forward to coming back!
Paul Beckman, St Louis, MO
Coconut Palms - We had two families for a total of nine people and had plenty of room and then some. We all had a great time and loved the House, the pool, the golf cart and everything else. The ability to play music outside at the pool is a great touch. After having used the pool everyday, we inquired about tools to vacuum the pool after a few days into our stay and someone showed up within an hour to vacuum it for us, WOW!!! what service. I will recommend Easy Street Pet Friendly Vacation Rentals to anyone looking to stay in Destin. I hope we are able to make it back again soon; we all miss the beach and the house already. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
Bob and Kristan Gillespie Tricia, Andrew, Matthew and Maggie, Gallatin, TN
Coral Cabana - We had a wonderful vacation! As you know, this is our third year in the Coral Cabana. Each time it gets better. The house is so comfortable that it almost feels as though it is our personal vacation home. Having four young children, itís often hard to find nice places to stay that comfortably accommodate all of us. The Coral Cabana definitely fits the bill! The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful. We love having our own private pool and the porch and lawn are major pluses. On days we donít feel like going to the beach, the kids are able to play outside while Bob and I relax on the porch swing. We also like that there is no waiting for elevators or stairs to climb. All the improvements you have made to the property look great. Thanks for making our vacation so comfortable and worry free. We will see you next year!
Isaac Miles, Bedford, TX
Pineapple Cabana - What can I say about Pineapple Cabana-Upon arrival, you've just made it back home! Away from the hustle & bustle of vacationers, Rick & Debbie have provided an Oasis surrounded by the beauty of the ocean. It's comfort, tranquility & style exemplifies pure pleasure & relaxation. It's truly home away from home. My wife, her brother & wife visiting from Germany & our two dogs fell in love with the place. The sunrise & sunsets were magnificent. After an early morning swim at the pool, a nice stroll on the beach, sight seeing, shopping & restauranting, we really enjoyed the peace & quiet the Pineapple Cabana offered. Next time it'll be just my wife & I.
Terri and Glenn Spivey, Jacksonville, FL
Ocean Breeze - We stayed with two other families and had a total of 10 people--the house was not cramped at all. Plenty of room. The pool was large too in comparison to other homes in the area, and we could not get over how close we were to the beach. We were about a block away. We're considering making this an annual trip. The house was in great shape, and extremely close to shopping and restaurants. Loved it!!
Diana Smith, Louisville, KY
Southern Comfort - Thank you Rick and Debbi! Southern Comfort was absolutely perfect! The house was very clean and was beautifully furnished in a very nice quiet neighborhood! We had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the pool and the fenced-in back yard was a huge plus for our little furry friends. Even though we could very easily walk to the beach we appreciated the use of the golf-cart to carry our beach gear. We will definitely return! Can't wait!! Thanks again!
Christy Dobbs, Oneida, TN
Vacation Paradise - This is a beautiful townhome that is very close to the beach, shopping and great dining! Everything was perfect! It is so much nicer than the huge condos that line the beaches! Thanks so much for a pleasant and quiet stay!
Bob and Shelia Brown, Midland, GA
Beachinit - Outstanding rental home! Perfect location and additions. We stayed for 6 nights during Spring break. The pool and the golf cart were the highlights for both the parents & the kids. When the temps dropped, we laid low behind the fence & enjoyed the solar pool. For dinner, we simply rode the golf cart to a nearby restaurant. Everyday, we walked in the AM and again in the PM....the housing area between old and new Hwy 98 is well suited for walking with your pet. Loved the fenced yard...perfect for our Lab. Great neighbors...many of whom are permanent residents. We will be back! And we will recommend the Easy Street Rentals to all who are looking for the same in Destin. Thanks for everything.
Darylann, Steve, Amanda, Julia and Rachel Adolf, Honeoye Falls, New York
Coral Cabana - Once again we had an absolutely wonderful time at the Coral Cabana. It is so comfortable, welcoming and extremely relaxing. We all thoroughly enjoyed our very own pool. The girls couldn't wait to come back this year and neither could we. It was so nice to come back to the same wonderful place we so fondly remembered. This year we made a new friend of the feline sort. Amanda named her Tiger even though she isn't a tiger cat and maybe she isn't even a she. "She" is very friendly and easy to recognize with a very short tail. We look forward to seeing her next year. I must say the highlight for me this year was having the opportunity to meet you both. You are such warm and friendly people. It was truly a pleasure meeting you in person. Thank you for all you have done for us.
Barbara & Ismail Saleh, Buford, Georgia
Aqua Terra - We stayed recently at one of your homes called "Aqua Terra", which was in a quiet picturesque neighborhood with very nice homes. We have stayed in Destin many times as we love the beautiful white beach. However, our stay with you was the best experience ever. It is not easy to find a private home with a pool as clean and nice as yours for the price, especially the personal attention you give your guests and their needs. Your personal touch is evident and was appreciated by us and our friends. We loved the house, the pool and the short walk to the beach. Would highly recommend this house and Easy Street.
Bart & Susan Heinemann, Grand Tower, IL
Banana Cabana - What an amazing vacation on Easy Street? You have truly thought of everything to make a vacation special. The privacy of the pool is terrific and a great place to relax while the husbands played golf. The house is so well equipped that we found ourselves way over packed (just like you said we would be). It was a pleasure meeting you upon our arrival.....it truly felt like we were home. Thanks so much, and looking forward to many more Destin Vacations.
