About Fawn Cougot

I live in this beautiful city of Destin and absolutely love it.....I stay busy managing my properties so I can ensure that my visitors will have a great vacation experience. I am a lisenced Real Estate Agent and tennis fanatic. As a native Texan, I love that my friends and family have such a great place to come visit. Most important to you is that I take pride in my properties and have many repeat vacationers.

Fawn Cougot purchased this house in 2002

Why Fawn Cougot chose Crystal Beach

Having the most beautiful beaches in the United States along with easy access for visitors made it an easy decision to buy vacation rental property in Destin. This is a family oriented vacation spot and once you arrive, you instantly are uplifted by the beauty of everything. The options of things to do is endless. There are boat rentals, parasailing, world class golf coarses, Big Kahuna Water Park, fine dining, excellent shopping, tennis, and most of all beautiful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our families third year at Fawndango's. We really love it!

This time we brought fishing poles and went surf-casting on the beach & also at Fort Walton Pier. So fun!!!!

Thank you so much for providing such an awesome place to make memories. It's more than we could've asked for and we feel very fortunate to have found it.

Wonderful Destin Home

  • 4 of 5

Took a family vacation to Destin and were very happy with Fawndango! The house was located very close to everything but you couldn't hear traffic or city noise. The golf cart made trips to the beach and restaurants a breeze. Fawn was an exceptional host and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for groups with 3 separate buildings with bed and bathrooms. It very clean an comfortable. We loved hanging on the front porch and around the pool. Fawn was great and came by to make sure everything was OK. We appreciated the owner being local and caring and able to solve any problems that may have arisen although none did. Convenient to everything in Destin and so quiet and peaceful. Thank you Fawn, we had a great time.
