**Cobia Cabana**

A great home for 4-5 families with children or up to 16 adults max.

Spend an unforgettable vacation in this recently remodeled cottage-style home very close to the beach. The home is like new – with interior updates and modern conveniences – and it still has that special charm and comfort you expect from a classic beach home. The well-planned layout of this home can comfortably accommodate up to 16 adults, or 4-5 families with children. It features 6 BEDROOMS and 5-½ BATHROOMS, including 3 King Masters, 1 Queen Master, 1 Triple Queen Bedroom and a Bunk Room with full-over-full bunks (2 full-size beds). You’ll enjoy nice ocean views from the 2nd & 3rd floor balconies.

There is plenty of room for everyone to gather in the spacious living area and the incredible custom kitchen is open to the action as well. The private pool is surrounded by brand new brick pavers. And when you’re ready for the beach – it’s a very short walk – less than a block away!

For the convenience of our guests, we have also included a full-size washer and dryer, an iron, ironing board, broom, and a few cleaning supplies. We keep our home clean and well updated, and pay attention to amenities you expect, such as high-speed wireless internet, nice flat-screen TVs, high-definition cable, hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.



The expansive front porch welcomes you into this exceptional home. Inside, you’ll find a bright and beautiful living area with gleaming hardwood floors, custom wainscoting and brand new furniture that provides plenty of seating for your entire group. There’s also an extra-large HDTV.

The wide open spaces continue in the brand new chef’s kitchen with incredible tile floors, custom cabinets and granite counters, and brand new stainless appliances (including an extra-large refrigerator with 2 ice-makers). The beautiful beadboard ceiling is another example of the creative details added to this home. A stunning granite island/bar wraps around the kitchen and is open to the living area with 5 barstools - a perfect spot for meals, snacks, or just hanging out. There’s also a kitchen breakfast area (with seating for 4) with a nice view of the pool. You’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip coffee maker, a toaster, blender, crock pot and even a few spices, to get you started. The beautiful, open dining area has a large table with seating for 10. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.

And for your children’s safety, there are alarms on the doors leading to the pool from the main house and the Carriage House. Pool heat is available for an additional fee.

Another favorite feature of this home is the private basketball court behind the Carriage House. It has an adjustable height goal and the basketball is provided.



This lovely Carriage House is next to the private pool behind the main house. Inside you’ll find a comfortable living area with a queen sleeper sofa, chairs and a flat screen TV. Included in this space is a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator with ice-maker, double sinks, drip coffee maker & microwave.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at 68 Cobia. The house was beautiful and everything we needed was furnished. There were 17 of us and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kids loved the pool and the walk to the beach was short. The wagon made it so convenient to take the beach chairs and toys to the beach. We would definitely stay at this property again. We did have to buy ice, but in the owners defense we didn't call to ask about it. Besides, all the great things about the house made buying a couple of bags of ice trivial. We had planned a trip to Hilton Head which got canceled due to the hurricane. Thanks so much to Sugar Palm Rentals for saving our family vacation. The process was simple and smooth. I would definitely recommend.

Destin - Cobia

  • 5 of 5

The home was great - plenty of space for our extended family to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

The pool was perfect as was the beach access and availability of things to do to keep everyone occupied. We would definitely recommend Sugar Palm Rentals to our friends - even if they don't have as large a group as we did.

Perfect Family Beach Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best weeks of our lives. You CANNOT beat the location of the house (in regards to its proximity to the beach) and the price that you pay. There was great shopping and everything you need within a couple of miles from the house. The house was exactly as described. There was plenty of room for everyone. The pool area was a great place to hang out. Jeff and his staff were very attentive to all of our needs. We were greeted with a personal post card and some awesome donuts from the Donut Hole. The third level of the house was perfect for all of the kids to sleep in. The beds were comfortable. There was a nice space out back for my lil' fur babies to run around and for me and my husband to do our morning Yoga. The kitchen was big enough for all of us to eat together every night and the living room was big enough to hang out and relax together! My only complaint would be that the dishwasher did not clean our dishes very well, the drain plug in the tub by the bunk room did not function properly and there were no wine glasses (but the staff did go buy some for us). The Crystal Beach area is beautiful!

Owner's Response: Oh we're so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed our home. Thanks for your kind words about our home and our service. It was our pleasure to host you and your family. Thanks for the heads up on the couple of issues we have taken care of all of them--They were all easy fixes! Dishwasher was just out of Jet Dry (which is a MUST with our water here). The drain plug has been fixed and we had more wine glasses in the owner's closet. My only wish is you would have told us while you were there so you could have had them while there. But thanks again for the feedback. We look forward to hosting you and your family again.

Cobia cabana

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cobia Cabana! It was a great house, there was plenty of space for every family. Our extended family got together for a week in Destin for a family reunion and this house was perfect. It is a short walk to the beach and the pool in the back yard was refreshing. The court in the back yard was a perfect spot for "soccer tennis" competition. Each family took a night to prepare dinner for the crew and there was plenty of space for everyone to eat. We would rent this house again if we all met in Destin at a future date.

Spring Break - Cobia Cabanna

  • 5 of 5

House was great and the service even better. The house is less than a block from the beach. In the evenings, you can go up on the top deck and watch the sunset. All appliances and dishes were new. The pool was heated and there were chairs, coolers and carts to help transport all of our stuff to the beach. Could not have happier with Sugar Palm.

Excellent vacation home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

There were 15 of us. 8 adults, and 7 kids, ranging from 16 to 7. The owners were great to work with, and the location was outstanding. Easy walk to the beach and great pool for the kids to enjoy. Kitchen is beautiful, and all the facilities were great. Plenty of space, and a perfect location for us to gather in as a family!
