Fabulous stay!

5 of 5

Had a wonderful week and lovely accommodations at Even Keel. Special shoutout to the abundance of outdoor seating options (4 porches!), nice big primary suite (feels like you're sleeping in the trees!), and the proximity to the beach and Goatfeathers. Would 100% recommend to any traveler!

We called Even Keel home for 2 weeks over the holidays. The location is great; very spacious and clean. Well stocked; enough kitchenware to cook Christmas dinner. The neighborhood was quiet and cozy. We could hear the Gulf waves from the front porches. It was too cool to use the pools but they looked lovely. Wi Fi worked great. Management company was easy to work with, responsive, codes for check in were provided timely and check in was easy. Really liked the area -- not as touristy as Destin, but still close enough to Destin for dining and shopping.

Our family LOVES Even Keel!

5 of 5

This was our second visit to Even Keel. The house itself is beautiful and spacious - our family of five had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The house is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and most importantly, ice cream! My kids especially enjoyed the neighborhood pool. We'll be back!

Spacious and quiet home

5 of 5

Rented the house for a week and had a wonderful stay. Everyone was able to have their own bedroom and bathroom. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and a short walk (or drive, if you have a lot of gear) from the beach. Everything was very clean and well kept.

Very comfortable beach condo minutes from a beautiful beach

5 of 5

Even Keel was the perfect location for our beach vacation with family and friends. With several young children in our party, we really enjoyed the spaciousness of the rental as well as the two pools within walking distance of the property. We didn't mind being minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the country either. Checking in and out of the rental was seamless with the key code entry system, and the house was very clean. We definitely plan to return!

Response from Benchmark Management

Alethia, thank you for reviewing your stay at Even Keel! We love to hear that it was the perfect beach vacation for you and your family! The location is great in every aspect! We hope you will come back and see us again soon!

Even Keel was AWESOME

by Plano TX

5 of 5

We absolutely loved Even Keel. It was perfect for our family. I would recommend a bike or golf cart rental to get to the beach, but the entrance is still easily accessible and close by! About half a mile! It was such a cute house and neighborhood. Lots of kids at the neighborhood pools! Would definitely recommend. Thanks for an awesome vacation!

Response from Benchmark Management

Peyton, we are so happy to hear that you loved your stay at Even Keel! We agree that this is a great property for families. The beach is in close proximity to the home which is a huge pus! We hope you will come back and see us again soon!

Beautiful beach house in Santa Rosa

5 of 5

My husband, 2.5 yr old, and I stayed here for five nights and have a wonderful experience. The home is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Each room has its own balcony and we enjoyed breakfast and yoga on the patios. The house is located less than a mile walk from some great restaurants and just a 10-minute walk to the beach. We would highly recommend Even Keel for anyone looking for peace, quiet, and respite from a busy lifestyle.

Response from Benchmark Management

Hi Catie, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Even Keel is a cozy home within walking distance to the beautiful white sandy beaches and many delicious restaurants. We agree that the decor is tastefully done, making it the perfect environment to relax after a long day at the beach. We hope that you and your family will come back and see us again.

Perfect Beach Vacation

We had a wonderful experience at Even Keel! The house itself is in a great location in Old Florida Village easily walkable to the beach. It is spacious with three bedrooms and three bathrooms and a full kitchen & living room. Each bedroom has its own private balcony for morning coffee which we very much enjoyed. The check-in/check-out process was a breeze. Can't say enough great things about our experience and we will definitely be back!

Response from Benchmark Management

We can't wait to have you back! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Even Keel and we couldn't agree more! Comfy home, great location and so close to the beach!
