Very clean and just like the description/photos show. I will definitely be back, saved big dollars by staying a couple hundred feet from beach. Beach is best in Florida. Quiet but still close to shopping and restaurants. I definitely recomend.

Great bang for your buck

Nice location, great price, perfect for the family to get close to the beach without breaking the bank. Short walk to the water and located within walking distance of the Crab Trap. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, so we were able to save money by not having to go out to eat every meal, a big plus! The owner and manager were very eager to recommend restaurants places to go. Would definitely recommend to friends.

After reading the reviews for this property, we decided to rent this home for three nights to spend the weekend at the beach celebrating our daughter’s 16th birthday. Since my decision was based on the reviews, I think it’s only fair that I post about our experience and give my opinion. First let me discuss the poor management. There is no rental agreement/contract, only a registration card that you fill out at the time you check in. You are charged for the number of people you have "staying" at the home, similar to a hotel. To me, this means "sleeping". What they don’t tell you is that if you have more than one vehicle parked at the home for a family of four, they ASSUME that you have more guests "sleeping" at the home. Based on their assumption, I was accused of lying and in their words "defrauding a property owner/landlord". No questions, just judgment. My family of four drove three separate vehicles because we are local. My husband drove straight from work, I drove from our home and my daughter drove from school. We had four additional family members over one evening for a cookout, which I had discussed with the property manager at the time of checking in. Therefore, at one point we had our three vehicles, plus three more. That’s when the phone calls came, and because we were at the beach, they went unanswered. Accordingly, the property manager showed up at the home and was very demanding and aggressive towards my parents as they were arriving for the cookout. My family was treated with great disrespect. If you do rent this home, be certain you get written permission from the owner/manager if you plan on having any guests over for dinner. Be sure to provide your guests' names and vehicle descriptions. Now I’ll address the property. This location is NOT a great getaway. The first turn off for me was the ash tray on the front porch. Secondly, the home smelled of pet odor. Also, the home had not been cleaned thoroughly in quite a while. We didn’t even feel comfortable walking barefoot through the home. You could definitely not walk barefoot outside because of all the stickers. We were sadly disappointed with the condition of this property, as well as the poor management. As I was checking out, I attempted to advise them they had a termite problem and hoped to explain why I was not happy. The response I received was "good, because you won’t get back in". Very bad experience. I would not recommend renting this property.

This adorable cottage offers everyting and more than you need. The owners are the true meaning of southern hospitality. They will go out of their way to accomodate your needs. The neighborhood is filled with warm and friendly neighbors. The beautiful beach is a very short walk - not to mention the fishing is great!!!. I could not believe that everything is so centrally located - shopping, dining. and entertainment. We have stayed in other areas before, and will return to Tarpon cottage for many years to come, god willing.

We have been spoiled by our stay at the Tarpon Getaway. An ideal choice to be close to the beach (one block walking distance to boardwalk to beach). The house is roomy and comfortable, very clean. We enjoyed the screened porch at the front. The additional outdoor shower was great for washing the beach sand off. You can certainly see and appreciate the attention to detail and personal caring that Molly gives to the house and guests. Cottage is less than a mile to grocery, shopping and entertainment. Highly recommend for a couple or a family. Can't wait to return.

I would definitely recommend this cozy house to anyone coming to destin. The customer service provided by kathy and her daughter molly was impeccable from the phone reservation till the last day we were there. The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach. Its centrally located to everything we needed. We couldnt fine anything near the beach for its price and it is very well maintained and super clean. Looking forward to coming back to this house next year.

Just spent four pleasant days in this perfectly located cottage. We needed "pet friendly" for our 18 year old calico's first visit to Florida to keep Mom company (she is "not" a beach person). This lovely area a two minute walk to the beach allowed my husband & I to enjoy the gulf without concern, while our seniors lounged in the a/c or sat on the screened porch people watching. Very quiet in the evenings, slept well even though July is "high tourist season". We felt right at home--enjoyed our own cooking & grilling.
