About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + bunk/tower room, & (2) sofa beds;3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

'Paradise Cottage' is a spacious three-story, cottage-style home located in the heart of Crystal Beach, one of Destin's most popular communities due to its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Located on a tranquil cul-de-sac the home is just one block from the beach and within walking distance to four major shopping centers including the newly expanded Destin Commons where you will find an abundance of shopping opportunities w/stores like Bass Pro Shop, Belk, Abercrombie, etc.. Also holds The AMC Movie Theater and many other shops and restaurants. In addition, several of Destin's finest golf resorts are within a 5 minute drive from the home. To give you an idea of how close these award winning courses are, here is a list: Regatta Bay (1) mile, Kelly Plantation (1) mile and Indian Bayou (3) miles for starters.

Perfect for a family or a couples' vacation every bedroom has a private bath, flat screen TV with Cable. Relax in the large jacuzzi tub in the Master Bath or take a siesta on the screened porch just off the Master Bedroom. On evenings when you want to dine in there's a large stainless steel gas grill on a shady grilling deck with plenty of cookware and a pantry full of spices and staples to make your meal a bit easier to prepare. The large open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living area adds to the enjoyment. As an added bonus, we have updated all of these rooms with new furnishings and accentuated the kitchen with granite, plaster backsplash and cool coastal paint for the cabinetry including all bathrooms! Additionally, there are 2 queen sofas in the living room if needed along with the tower/bunk room!

Enjoy our newly renovated air-conditioned Paradise Tower which has added a Twin Day Bed w/Trundle to the top floor! This room also includes a flat screen TV and additional remote A/C unit. Perfect for teens or an extra guest to enjoy the view from the top of Destin! Gulf view, morning sunbathing, afternoon sea breezes and fabulous evening sunsets make the third floor deck one of the home's main attractions. If there 's a book worm in your group, the third floor tower/widow's watch, is surrounded by windows allowing endless natural light. Also, coffee it up or wine it down each day on the relaxing wrap-around front porch w/a plantation swing.

Cool off in the community pool conveniently located just across the street which is also heated in the spring and fall months.

Stay with us and you will see why 'Paradise Cottage' is truly a vacation home deserving of its name!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband & I lived in east central Mississippi and have been visiting Destin for over 30 years. We own a business in Philadelphia, Mississippi, manufacturing outdoor wood burning heaters. When we decided to buy a vacation home, we both felt Crystal Beach in Destin was the premium choice location. After several years of enjoying our home in Clipper Cove, we decided to retire to the Crystal Beach area of Destin. We sold our home in Philadelphia and moved to another home in Crystal Beach and continue enjoy sharing our vacation home with guests all over the country. It has always been our desire when families stay at Paradise Cottage, they feel like they are at home and enjoy the Emerald Coast in beautiful Destin, FL like our family has.

Why the Owner Chose Clipper Cove, Destin, FL, USA:
Crystal Beach is such a great community for families and family vacations. Our home is located in Clipper Cove which is a circle of homes with no thru streets so even though it is within walking distance to everything it is also very peaceful. Also the beach access is only about 200 yards away and the beach there is never as crowded as other areas in Destin.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of our favorite features of our home is the third floor deck. From there you can catch the ocean breezes while watching the boats go by. It is nice and sunny in the mornings and cool and shady for evening sunsets. Also the cul-de-sac neighborhood of Clipper Cove is great for biking, jogging or just walking and enjoying the scenery.
