About Bill or Terry

We from Kansas City but love Destin! Have been coming down for years and love this location!

Bill or Terry purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Bill or Terry chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Emerald Shores has to be one of the best vacation home neighborhoods along this stretch of beach! The location can't be beat! Walk to the beach and restaurants along the beach! Very close to the Destin Commons Mall and the Silver Sands Outlet Mall!

What makes this cottage unique

Our neighborhood's private beach cabana is unique in this area. We are the only neighborhood to have a private beach cabana with restrooms, lounge chairs, and picnic tables! It's fabulous!

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed for a week. Everything was clean and nice. We had 11 people in total (4 adults 3 teenagers and 4 little ones) and had no problems being accommodated. There was plenty of pots, pans and dishes in the kitchen so you don't have to eat out and save money. The location is great where you can walk to the beach and there is also a dollar general store that we have walked to couple of times during our stay. Overall a great experience.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with this house. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. Kids were extremely happy and the walk to the beach was short and sweet. Check in and check out was simple and we had no concerns throughout the week. The kids loved the being able to get snow cones ($4) at the cabana.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone for rental, and we will probably try to get the same house again on our next vacation to Destin.

Nothing short of fabulous! The Pipers Penny home was fully equipped for cooking, good storage, cocktails & more. It was very clean & well maintained. This family of 5 had more than enough room & fully enjoyed both the upstairs spacious deck and brick patio. The amenities; pool, tennis court, access to beach were very convenient. The mgmt team was very accommodating to our questions as well. I would highly recommend this property to help enjoy your visit to Destin.

Mid way between the Destin Commons Mall and The Silver Sand Designer Outlet Mall very close to the beach! You can be anywhere in Destin within 6 miles! The kids will love the Big Kahunas Water Park only 3 miles away! The grown ups will appreciate the shopping, dining, and golf all within 1 to 6 miles!
