Sea Belle Cottage! Private Pool/Short Walk to Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Walk to the beach! from our 3 bedroom cottage located in the quaint seaside community of Crystal Beach adjacent to the natural beauty and seclusion of Henderson Beach State Park. “Sea Belle” is located a short walk from the fabulous Destin beaches - convenient to shopping, entertainment, popular restaurants etc. The cottage sleeps 8 guests comfortably, features a private swimming pool and a large patio area equipped with an outdoor grill.

The 'Sea Belle' is the PERFECT vacation home for families. Unlike a crowded high-rise condo, the cottage is situated in a very peaceful and scenic beachside community convenient to everything Destin has to offer. We think you will find the comfort and privacy of our home extremely desirable as there are no stairways, elevators or parking lots to navigate. All of our guests seem to really enjoy it!

The cottage is beautifully decorated with a Florida beach cottage theme and ready for YOUR family vacation. It has a main floor master suite with a comfortable & cozy king bed. One upstairs bedroom has a captain's bed plus twin bunk beds with a pull out trundle for a total of 4 beds. The other upstairs bedroom has a queen bed; the living room has a comfortable queen sized sofa sleeper.

The Gulf of Mexico is warm and the water is clear & blue. You'll wake up to beautiful sunrises, take relaxing strolls on white sandy beaches, and enjoy the warm gulf breeze from your front porch. We hope you’ll visit soon!

About The Owner

Destin and the Sea Belle cottage is our 'home away from home'. We have been visiting the area for many years and really enjoy our house by the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches are absolutely georgeous and are among of the most beautiful in the U.S.

Why The Owner chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We love the beautiful clean, white sandy beaches, warm sunny weather, and clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We wanted our guests to enjoy it too!

What makes this cottage unique

The location is perfect, within a short walk of the beach and also very near restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and everything else that a world class resort has to offer. Although we live in Atlanta, we visit our vacation home as often as possible. The fall is our favorite time to visit because the beaches are a less crowded, the Gulf of Mexico is warm and clear blue, and the weather is absolutely gorgeous. We hope you enjoy the Sea Belle cottage as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was just perfect for us. We spent almost every morning in the pool (early), then later morning at the beach, then afternoon back in the pool. The weather was beautiful all week and our kids were having the time of their lives. I wish we could've spent another week here! We'd definitely like to go back sometime. Our friends want to make it their annual summer trip. Thanks so much!

Loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with 4 children, and grandma. Had plenty of room in the home. It was even better thn pictures. We enjoyed having a private pool, and nice outdoor eating area. Access to shopping and beach was great! We miss it already, can't wait to return.

Family of 4 summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have a small family - my wife and I, and our 2 kids, who are 7 and 3. This was all made simple from the beginning while booking, all the way down to using and dealing with Dale E. Peterson Vacations, whom the Hunters use to help manage the bookings and check-ins, etc. The home is very nice and the young ones loved the bunks upstairs. The back yard is amazing and we grilled lunch several days and swam a lot in the private pool. Very well worth it all. Thanks again to Reg and the Hunter family, as well as DEP for making this enjoyable. Destin is our favorite spot we go each year - and best house we've had since doing so!

Great for a family's fall break!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, great time at this house. It accommodated my family of five plus two friends for my kids, plus a grandmother. We loved the pool and the amazing back yard for hanging out. It's nestled in a nice little neighborhood so you don't feel like you're in the middle of Destin mayhem, yet you are still within walking distance of the gorgeous, gorgeous beach. It's also very close to shopping and grocery stores, which is very convenient. You will love it!

SeaBelle for a girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the Hunter family for the use of their home. This house is close to shops and dining, but in a quiet area. The house was very clean and the pool in the backyard is an added bonus - perfect for a girls trip! We had a very relaxing four days. This was my second visit to SeaBelle, and we'll be back next year!

Girl's Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The beach and water were beautiful. We certainly enjoyed our morning walks followed by kronuts and coffee at Camilles. The house was perfect for us and we loved having cocktails by the pool or just floating around enjoying the sun. It was very comfortable and roomy. We had everything we needed right at our fingertips. We would definitely recommend staying in this beautiful home. It is very convenient to all shopping needs.
