Property description

Begin your day with a bike ride along the beach at sunrise. The wind in your hair, you stop for a cup of coffee to watch the sun slowly rise out of the east and the pelicans on the gulf. The fishermen on the beach give you ideas for casting a line tomorrow in the early hours of daybreak .

Riding home you catch a glimpse of dolphins playing off shore and are ready to roll the kids down in the wagon to share this idyllic surf and sand and bring home a few shells from the crystal white beach. Rafts, buckets, beach chairs, umbrella, it's all here for you at the house to relax and enjoy all that “A Beachin Cottage’” has to offer.

Maybe it’s just you and your loved one, family getaway, or a girl's week at the beach, read the morning paper on the deck and watch the birds play from the privacy of our backyard.

“A Beachin' Cottage” is our cozy, well-equipped, three-bedroom beach cottage in the Maravilla community of Destin, Florida. Just a short 5 minute walk to the beach, pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, or fitness center this private single-family cottage, on a private lot with a fabulous quiet backyard, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable family room and a large chef's equipped kitchen. Washer and dryer, dining room, high speed wireless Internet and two car garage are just a few of the additional amenities.

Ceiling fans, colorful rooms, and beautiful new tile floors. 'A Beachin' Cottage takes comfort to a new level. Pillow top king beds in two bedrooms so you have two masters, and a twin, full bunk bed for the kids. Also included is a queen sized sleeper in the family room for those nights when you need just a little more room for your guests.

Cable is available along with several DVD players and music player. If you have to spend an hour or so working while on vacation you will have wireless Internet available.
