                                The house is across the road from the beach. Sidewalks to walk, run or ride a bike go on for miles. The beach is clean and Chairs and umbrella available. The home is very large, great for a large family or 3 separate families. Large kitchen open to the DR and LR. TV"s all over the house. Washer and Dryer in the house (look new). Terraces off back of home upstairs and down. Stairs to the roof where you can see gorgeous sunrises. The visit was very comfortable and relaxing. Plan to visit again. You can find tons of shopping and Restaurants within 10 miles. Healthcare facility close just in case. You wont be disappointed. There are flights of stairs to contend with but railings are in place.

                                Beautiful home in a great location. My wife and I spent a week there in June of 2013 with three parents (all near 70), a 27 month old and a 10 week old. The home provided the perfect set up to give the parents their own spaces on the ground floor and us and our kids our own space on the third floor. The garage was well stocked with lots of floats, beach toys, umbrellas, etc and the house had plenty of linens and kitchen items. The pool and beach never felt crowded and walking to the beach and crossing the street was never a problem. If you want to drive down to the beach, make a left and go to Pompano Joes or make a right and go to the Crab Trab and there's plenty of beach parking there. And those restaurants were great as well. Also, the garlic bread at Captain Dave's right at the entrance to the subdivision had the best garlic bread we've ever had. You've got to try it! The roof top deck is nice but some people may find the narrow spiral staircase hard to navigate. You can always exit the house on to the master bedroom balcony and then you just have one flight up to the roof. But the back patios are fine for relaxing, especially in the mornings as they face west. I looked at a lot of home before booking this and I personally don’t like beach houses that look like beach houses – sell shells and star fish and cheesy 70’s beach décor all over the place. This house had a very modern décor and was decorated beautifully. A nice touch is how every light/fan switch is labeled (there are a LOT!) This was our first time renting one of these impressive homes and for a group our size it worked perfectly. It does sleep 14, but I think 10 is probably the max as there is only one shower per floor.

                                This house was all we could've asked for and more! The pictures do not do it justice and the sound system throughout the entire house was just the cherry on top! Would definitely stay here again and my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The perfect house for a large group!

                                My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed this home. My party consists of eight adults and we all have plenty of space; however, both kids and adults will enjoy. Located within walking distance from the beach and several resturants. The home had the only rooftop deck in the subdivision. We will definitely stay here again.

                                Our stay at Terra Cotta Terrace was all that we hoped for and more. This home is centrally located and the top deck provides an unobstructed view of all of Destin. We were delighted by the immaculate cleanliness and charm of every room. The main floor patio is large with comfortable, cushioned chairs...excellent for early morning coffee and grilling out. The kitchen provided all of the amenities that were needed for any occasion: dinner in, etc. We enjoyed the home and location so much....a couple of evenings we cooked fresh seafood and ate in...enjoying the quiet, relaxing view from the top deck. For evenings that we ventured out...great restaurants and shopping were very close by. Just amazing! We definitively will contact Courtney again for future rentals....soon I hope :-}

                                Terra Cotta Terrace was perfect for our family vacation. We all (3 families, 12 total) rendezvoused there for our spring vacation and not only was the house perfect for us but Destin was beautiful and relaxing. The deck on the roof was a perfect place to relax in the evening and the kitchen in the house was above and beyond my expectations for a vacation home. We had great weather so the whole family was at the beach everyday. The house had everything we needed and ended up being a great pick. Enjoy!

                                My family and I came down from Ohio to Destin for the first time and had an amazing time. The home was amazing and the location perfect!! While I was a little worried that we were not directly on the beach before we got there. Once there I found out that it was so close it didnt matter, the beach was a 2 minute walk across the street! Everything in the home was new and super clean and the layout was perfect for the group. This is a place we plan to come back every year!

                                This location was great and the house and views were super. The family really enjoyed our week in Destin, Fl. Lots to do for all ages and so close to the beautiful gulf. We will stay here again next visit.
