LOCAL OWNER/MANAGER = GREAT VACATION...I not only live here, but it is my Full-time job to verify that my guest are taken care of during their stay. Should any issue arise, rest assured that instead of possibly having to wait hours for a Management Company or Absentee Owner to contact you, I am a phone call away....I mention this because according to my prior guests, this along with the care and attention I give is what sets my properties apart.

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 Scenic Gulf Drive West

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 manager

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.

Very charming home. It was perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

There were a few inconveniences within the residences, but nothing that you wouldn't find in any home; light bulbs not working, smoke detectors chirping, etc...basically it's an established, lived-in residence. If you're looking for something pristine and brand new, this isn't for you.

That being said, the house is 2 blocks from the beach. It does have a golf cart, but some days parking at the beach can be problematic so it's close enough to walk.

Me, my wife and our 3 daughters stayed in the house. We had all the room we needed and entertained several other family members throughout the week. You can easily put 10-12 people there. Pool is nice and cool even though it's smaller. Street is not that busy even though the house is basically at the entrance to the neighborhood. All the conveniences you need are within 5 minutes drive. It's quiet, cozy and very relaxing. We had coffee every morning on the patio looking at the pool area. We would definitely stay there again.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The houses were clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with anything we might have needed. The beds were comfortable and the WIFI worked in both houses. The houses are 1 block away from the gulf and a 2 minute drive from the grocery store. We are planning a return trip it was so much fun!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our party loved this rental home. We usually stay in resorts in Panama City Beach, FL but this place has made us Destin people going forward. The weather on our trip was not the best but having the pool, all the space, and privacy helped make our trip very enjoyable. The golf cart was very handy and this rental is very close to good beach access as well as good shopping. We highly recommend.

On a side note: go preds!!!

Map

Crystal Beach is located on the east side of Destin just south of the Mid Bay Bridge. We are 6 mies west of Sandestin. Just south of the Destin Commons Mall and various stores makes it a great place to stay not having to drive any distance. Everything you need is 'just around the corner'.
