Beach Retreat Cottages cottage description
WELCOME to the "Beachcomber" ! This lovely 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom Beach Retreat Cottage is ideal for one large family or two families that wish to share the cost. There are two master suites and each one has its own bathroom so that everyone can enjoy comfort and privacy. The house is just across the beach road to the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Just a short 1 - 2 minute stroll is one of the prettiest stretches of white sand beaches along the Gulf Coast.
This home accommodates 10 comfortably - two king, one queen, two twins, and one queen sofa sleeper. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Each bedroom has its own TV. The kitchen, dining room and family room are open, which is great for gathering without feeling crowded. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and all your cooking and serving needs. The family room is very comfortable with a large TV, CD, and VHS/DVD player. Also, the house has free Internet service . There is parking for 2 cars.
Beach Retreat is right by Pompano Joe's Restaurant which is a great place to walk to in the evening. Destin has several nice restaurants at varying price points, a coffee shop, retail shops, and our kids' favorite, Fudpuckers, where you can feed the alligators. Bike rentals are also available in Destin. The community of Sandestin and Bay Towne Warf are just a short drive down scenic Hwy. 98 and is fun to visit.
We prefer to rent to families. We do not rent our house to students or young single adults under the age of 25 unless they are accompanied by an adult guardian or parent who remains in the house for the entire stay. Reservations made under false pretenses may be subject to forfeiture of advance rental payments and security/damage deposits. We love our beach house and hope that you will enjoy it as well and treat it as your own. We look forward to having you as our guest!
What to do besides enjoy our wonderful beach...
Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices. Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding. We are a short 2 mile drive to the Silver Sands mall to the West, or luxury shopping at Destin Commons to the East. Kenny D's, The Crab Trap, and Pompano Joe's are all within walking distance to the Beach Retreat Cottages. We encourage you to leave menus of your favorite restaurants when you come.

Beachcomber Stay. Jan12-Feb27 2013
This house is in a beautiful community. The house itself is very nice and a good size for a family. It is well equipped and there is little that you will need for your stay. Although our overall assesment is average, this is due to the quality of the living room furniture and master bedroom mattress. If you have back issues, this home may not be for you. For most people, the furniture may be acceptable, but for our needs, it was not. My wife has had back surgery and is prone to back problems. I recognize that this is a rental property and that a landlord needs to make a profit. However, i believe that this home is overdue for at least new living room furniture. This could be a great property with a little investment and would rate a definate recommendation On a more positive note, the property managers that look after this home, are GREAT. They are Kathy and Mike are very helpfull and responsive to any questions or issues. They made our stay more pleaseant.

The cottage was very warm and inviting. It was what we wanted, being close to the beach and convenient to shopping, dining, and sight seeing. This was my first time staying in a vacation rental by owner and I was a little inconvenienced that there were no basic spices or coffee for one morning. Fortunately we arrived before the stores closed and was able to get what we needed for the next morning,

I would highly Recommend this House!
We have been to Destin several times and have stayed in this particular complex twice, although this was our first year for the beachcomber. We came with my extended family and this house was perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again. The beach and pool are a short walk, which is great with small children. I like to run as well, and the biking/walking/running path on 98 is perfect.
