At Breathe Easy Rentals, we believe that the heart of any vacation destination lies in the stories and experiences of those who have explored its beauty. Our guests’ memories are the true testament to the magic of the Florida Panhandle, and we are excited to share some of these cherished moments with you.

In this blog post, we invite you to dive into the delightful tales and heartfelt testimonials from real visitors who have had memorable vacations in our rental properties. From the sandy beaches of Destin to the charming spots along Miramar Beach, these stories capture the essence of unforgettable getaways.

“Family from Texas and South Carolina gathered for a week at Shipwatch Palazzo! It was a week, and the house met our every need. From 9 months old to 91 years old, every family member was adequately accommodated. Fantastic location and amenities made this a week to remember!”

Our takeaway: We love that our properties range from a large beachfront home such as Shipwatch Palazzo, which can sleep 22 guests, all the way down in size to one bedroom, affordable condos!

“What a great find! We absolutely loved our ground floor condo. The location was great with access to activities and restaurants but the complexes are lower density so the beach was not overly crowded. The condo is completely updated with a gorgeous fully stocked kitchen, beautiful decor and comfortable furniture throughout. Very clean and even included extras to ensure we would enjoy our stay. We will definitely be booking this unit in the future!”

Our takeaway: While many folks prefer higher-up floors, we have found that many families are beginning to enjoy and see the major conveniences of being ground floor: easier access in/out, no elevators, closer to parking/amenities, etc.

“We cannot wait to book our next vacation at this condo. It was perfect for us. A beautiful upgraded condo in Sandestin®, safety, walk out to the beach, a few mile drive to 30A or Destin all made this the perfect condo for a great vacation. We’ll be back next year!”

Our takeaway: We (and our guests!) absolutely love the many conveniences of Sandestin® Resort in Miramar Beach – a family friendly 2400 acre resort packed full of beach, amenities, and activities for all ages to enjoy.

‘This property was perfect for our family while I attended a local convention. It is in a great location with easy beach access and not nearly as crowded as its neighboring properties. It was very clean and well maintained. Management checked on us several times to make sure all was good. I highly recommend this property.”

Our takeaway: We often see many travelers visiting for local conferences who don’t want to be stuck in a tiny hotel room. Vacation rentals offer great space, often a full kitchen, and many times even a washer/dryer in the property which allows for your family to feel right at home, even if traveling.

“Our rental from start to finish was super easy. Breathe Easy was so great to deal with. We will definitely be using them again in the future. The beach access was awesome. Private beach was not overcrowded at all. We never had any issues getting an umbrella and chairs. Can’t wait to come back. We used Xplorie for a dolphin cruise with [the] Sea Blaster cruises, and it was very easy to book through them. We received one free adult ticket for the cruise which saved us $30. The cruise was a lot of fun, and the crew were a blast. Definitely recommend using them. Fudpuckers was a lot of fun also.”

Our takeaway: When comparing vacation rental options, consider things such as beach access (public vs. private), amenities, beach service, price, bedding, bathrooms (shower vs. tub) and parking allowances. For those who book with Breathe Easy Rentals, we include the daily activity program which provides one free pass, per activity, per day – it’s only advantageous if you actually take us up on the offer!

“The condo was spacious, clean, and cozy, comfortably fitting my family of 5. This was our first time staying in this particular area of Destin, and we loved it. The condo was a very short walk across the parking lot and one-street crosswalk to the beach, less than 2 minutes, which was very nice. The beach set-up with umbrella and chairs is always a favorite amenity and made our beach time much more enjoyable. The pool is just around the corner from the room and was easy to get to. The majority of shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores are a 15-20 minute drive away, with some restaurants being within walking distance of the condo. Overall, we had a great stay in this condo and had a wonderful experience with the communication/booking process with Breathe Easy Rentals! Highly recommend staying here or booking with this company.”

Our takeaway: Try something new! While we, too, love going back to the same safe spaces, you never know when you’re going to visit an area/property that far exceeds your expectations. We do suggest doing business with the same rental company in the area (wink, wink: Breathe Easy Rentals), especially when they offer a plethora of vacation rental condos and homes! Also, don’t forget to ask for local recommendations on eats/things to do. We provide our guests with a handy dandy digital guidebook that highlights our favs!

“Room is great, weather is perfect. We really enjoyed our stay. I hope to be back soon. Here are a couple of pictures from one of our sunset walks on the beach.”

“We're already planning for next year! It's hard to leave without something to look forward to. We had a wonderful time and made memories that will last a lifetime.”

"Thanks for a wonderful place to create our first family get together. We loved the condo."

"Vacations mean a change of pace, a gentleness with ourselves, a time of rest and renewal, and a time to stretch ourselves and encounter new people, new lands, new ways, and new options."

We hope these heartwarming testimonials and personal stories have provided you with a glimpse of the incredible adventures and cherished memories waiting for you in the Florida Panhandle. At Breathe Easy Rentals, we’re committed to helping you create your own unforgettable experiences. Whether you’re seeking relaxation on the beach, thrilling water adventures, or discovering the local culture, the Florida Panhandle has it all. Book your stay with us, and let your story become the next cherished memory in this stunning coastal paradise.
