You will absolutely love this home. The house is nice and spacious with a beautiful pool and yard. It was so great to be able to take my pets on vacation. Make sure to visit the Crab Trap. Can't wait to come back.

My family and in-laws had a wonderful time here!! It was so nice to have a private pool and plenty of pool toys and floats to go with it. My 3 year old had a blast! We rented the golf cart and would recommend paying extra for it. It was nice to have to take on little trips to the stores or drive up and down the the strip without paying for gas! We enjoyed the beach set up (although one day we had to kick some people out of our spot). You could walk to the beach if you didn't have the golf cart. This was our first time to Destin and we had so much fun. The owners were very easy to work with. We would come back and stay here again!

This house was great for our family of six. Great location, it is in a quiet culdesac, and a very short walk to the beach. Kitchen was well stocked with items needed for cooking meals. The private pool was wonderful to have. There were evenings we all just relaxed around the pool. The fact that we were able to bring our two dogs and the pool were the deciding factors in choosing this rental, it also has a nice size fenced in yard. They provide a reserved spot on the beach with two chairs and an umbrella. The only two small issues were, we had some trouble connecting to their WiFi and the grill needed cleaning. That being said, Carol was great to deal with. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for providing a wonderful place to stay in for a much needed family vacation.

Overall great house and great vacation location. The house is even nicer than we expected and the pool is such a plus! The walk to the beach is short (may want to consider the golf cart) and Carol was extremely responsive resolving the issue when the internet went down. I highly recommend this wonderful rental.

We keep coming back to our "Tropical Dream"! A perfect home for our week together. Our daughters, dogs, the pool, the beach, the neighborhood, the good food, the good fun, with great places to walk, shop, play, and visit. We have such fun at Tropical Dreams. I love to cook for my family when we are together and the kitchen is well stocked with equipment for fixing meals. The neighborhood is close to restaurants or carry out services. We usually take a family photo on the beach each year, but this year we took our picture at the house on the front porch with Izzy B. and Zoey, our dogs. It was the best picture ever. We are already planning our return.

My family and I had a great time in Destin. The house was very cozy and very well kept. The pool area was perfect. The house comes fully stocked with pool toys, baby gates and even dog bowls. It's great to be able to take your dog with you on family trips. The beach accsess area was a little confusing. There were no signs posted to inform us on where our entrance was. Doesn't matter anyway because there is open accsess to the beach right next to the private entrance. If you have small children then rent the golf cart. We didn't and we retreated it. It's at least like 1.5-2 blocks to get to the beach. Will definitely go back!

Perfect Location, Perfect House
Perfect Location, Perfect House
Our first trip to Destin in nearly two decades and Tropical Dreams was the perfect rental choice. Easy check in, SUPER CLEAN house, 5 minute walk to the beach, a perfect private pool at the house. Beds very comfortable with soft sheets and the location of the house ensures quiet nights for excellent sleeping conditions. We also rented a street legal golf cart thru the property owners and it also was sparkling clean and in perfect working condition. I have to really dig deep to find suggestions for improvement so here goes: make your renters aware of the timing of the automatic sprinklers in the back yard. Thanks for a wonderful stay at Tropical Dreams. Would definitely stay here again. P.s. -- Kenny D's has fantastic fried pickles and great burgers along with other tasty choices at decent prices. Pampano Joe's is over priced and overrated.

Unbelievably CLEAN!!! I was blown away by the cleanliness of the property. The rental was very welcoming and super clean. Very quiet and the weather was perfect. After speaking with the owners it seemed as though we had known them forever. They were very kind, christian people. They brought us a gift to help us celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary since by husband was in Afghanistan when our actual anniversary came and went. Such a nice surprise. The ocean was beautiful and within walking distance. Very pleasant neighborhood. We will be going back.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Our journey began in late 2002 when we purchased our first vacation home called Tropical Breeze. We entered this adventure with open minds thinking we would purchase a home, hang on to it for five years, sell and then upgrade to a larger home we would eventually move into. We vacationed in Destin when our busy schedules permitted us to and we would take our shoes off from the time we arrived, and they stayed off until we left. Our days were spent at the beach burying our sons in the sand and enjoying the summer breezes. We felt this was a joy everyone should experience. The only way this could happen was to share our vacation home with others. The response from our guests was so overwhelming that we found ourselves turning families away. With additional planning and a lot of prayer, we purchased Tropical Paradise and Tropical Dreams in 2004. Six years and three vacation homes later (2008), we finally moved to Destin.
Why the Owner Chose Terra Cotta Terrace:
Destin is such a family friendly vacation spot and the beaches are absolutely beautiful!
