Isn’t it easy to get sick of work, sick of stress and sick of a fast-paced life these days! The cure? A quiet getaway at Doctor’s Orders in Kokomo Cove! This Destin vacation rental sits just enough off the beaten path to offer real peace and tranquility- there are no parking lots, cement jungles or noisy neighbors here! It’s wooded surroundings encompass views of two inlets of Destiny West lake speckled with charming wildlife that call it home.

Another pleasant side effect of Doctor’s Orders is its location near Destin’s most powerful medicine- the soothing Gulf of Mexico. Head two blocks from the front porch and see the sun sparkling on the emerald water like diamonds, feel the powder-soft sand between your toes and listen to the rustle of sea oats in the Gulf Breeze. That powerful combination is sure to heal whatever ails you! You'll be able to control the camera presented by our closest restaurant on the beach, The CrabTrap. Our private beach is a couple hundred feet to the right of this public beach and usually has roughly one tenth the people on it!)

Kokomo Cove’s entry also crosses a newly paved walking path that stretches the length of the beach road. Restaurants, shops and even golf courses dot this scenic route and provide entertaining waypoints for a sunny bike ride. We provide bikes, kayak, chairs, and umbrellas!

Doctor’s Orders has been renovated in 2018. Your home by the sea features a calming interior with worry-free Onyx Tile floors, a beautifully updated kitchen and new HD TV's. Additional ‘recovery aids’ include an eye-catching oceanscape décor, the convenience of a laundry room as well as the luxury of a Jacuzzi bath in the master suite. Plus, the private pool deck, two balconies with water views and a private grill are extra perks to this rejuvenating vacation home.

About Franni Whiteside

Ken and Franni purchased Doctor's Orders in 2014 after vacationing in the area for two decades. We believe nobody will take better care of our houses then we do and that nobody will show you more personal interest than the actual owners. DoctorsOrdersDestin is the house next door. We purchased it in 2018 and immediately began renovation. We are sure you will notice our care and concern for you quality of stay when you book with us and the first time you step into the home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an awesome time here in Florida & Doctor's Orders 2. We made so many wonderful new memories. Our only regret is that we didn't vacation here sooner.



The beach was beautiful and we didn't want to leave. Your home was beautifully decorated and had more extras than we could of asked for.

Thank you again and we are already talking about are next years trip --



Thank You - Steve, Tracy, Maddy, & Ry

Fantastic girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Doctor's Orders 2 was perfect for our girls getaway. The location is close enough to walk to the private beach, but situated in a quaint neighborhood away from the main Hwy. traffic. The house was spacious enough for 11 of us to stay comfortably, and had everything we needed. The owner's Franni and Ken Whiteside were wonderful to work with, they communicated very well. I would definitely recommend!

Very beautiful & neat. Gorgeous decorations.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Doctors Orders. Everything was perfect & we were tended to very quickly with any concerns or questions. The house is absolutely gorgeous inside & out. Even the decorations matched the beach vibe which was great! We needed absolutely nothing on this trip all amenities were there!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Doctor’s Orders 2 and were very pleased with the accommodations. We had a short 8 min walk to the beach and access to a private pool. The home comfortably slept 12 of us and the space was a nice beach home. I’d definitely stay here again.

Newly renovated and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Second time out in Destin but 1st time renting a home and let me tell you! This is the place to bring the family! Doctors Orders 2 was very clean and newly renovated. A total surprise when we walked in since the pictures do not justify the prime location and views. Yes! It has an amazing patio view! Walking distance to the beach and a quick jog to a really nice coffee shop. Ken was also amazing himself! He checked on us daily and welcomed us on our arrival day. We will definitely be coming out to Doctors Orders again! Can’t beat the location and customer service! Thanks again Ken!!!!
