About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Named and styled after our favorite Tuscan village - Siena - our little Italian-style cottage home is a wonderful, romantic, get-away for a couple or a small family. You won't find many rentals with the quality and character of Siena.

The large master bedroom is a wonderful retreat for you and your significant other. Romantic nights can be spent in the King bed with its beautiful wooden headboard, listening to music, enjoying the Gulf breeze, being dazzled by the flames from the fireplace, or even watching TV. The bedroom also has a sitting area with two beautiful leather and teak chairs and the room opens to a large deck with a hammock that easily holds two people.

You can also escape to the old-world Italian-styled serenity of the master bath which consists of a two-person jacuzzi tub and separate shower - all surrounded with rustic real Italian tumbled marble.

Climb the spiral stairs to the third story deck and enjoy the beautiful western view of the Gulf waters - a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine while watching beautiful Emerald Coast sunsets.

The downstairs area contains a small living area with a sofa (with pull out bed), a full size kitchen, a laundry room, and another bathroom with a luxurious rainfall shower.

Outside there is a small garden where you can relax in the shade or enjoy the sun, cook out on the grill, or enjoy an al-fresco lunch or dinner on the massive teak table.

The house is a short walk (about 600 ft) down a quiet street to the most pristine beaches in the world. Siena is also located within a short drive to many activities and fabulous restaurants on the Emerald Coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Siena house was really perfect for a getaway. The walk to the beach is about five minutes and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The area is very family friendly, but works really well for those without munchkins as well. The beach wasn't very crowded any day I was there and the sand was, obviously, gorgeous. At the cottage, there are a total of three outdoor areas that are each lovely. We spent many a morning having breakfast on the covered porch and many an evening trying to figure out how to lay in the hammock on the covered deck adjacent to the bedroom. :) Sunsets are incredible to watch from the 3rd floor deck. The interior of the cottage is really cozy and comfortable. All in all, I would absolutely recommend staying here if you'd like a quiet, relaxing stay by the beach.

Siena House

  • 4 of 5

I spent 3 nights in this cute little house. Travelled by myself but felt completely safe in the house and area. A short 2 block walk to the beach. Great for 1-2 people.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I decided to stay at the Siena House for our honeymoon because we wanted somewhere more secluded rather than the whole touristy scene. This small cottage is perfect for two and came with all of the necessities. We took the two minute walk to the beach everyday and went into Destin three or four days for snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing, and more. The biggest issue we had was the overall cleanliness of the house. The kitchen drawers weren't clean and there were cobwebs in the windows. We also noticed the leaking shower head and a small piece of glass was loose around the shower, so we contacted the property manager. He immediately sent out a repairman for the shower problems and offered to send a cleaning crew as well.

Good Stay!!

  • 4 of 5

We are currently on our last night here at Siena. The house is adequate space for my husband and I 5 day stay. The house comes equipped with a lot of the necessaties from home. The walk to the beach was a breeze from this property. The house could be cared for a little more example: replace lumpy mattress, clean mold in up stairs bathroom, a thorough dusting, (husband dusted the ceiling fan and there was plenty of dust), and the TV downstairs lost volume twice but did come back on after it was unplugged and plugged back up (we had to make a call to the property owner). Overall it was a nice getaway. The area and beaches are great!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry the house wasn't as clean as it should have been. I live far from the property and rely on my management company to take care of the house. I have contacted them and asked them to ensure a higher standard when it comes to cleaning. I hope you get a chance to stay with us again sometime. Again, thank you for your feedback.

Mr & Mrs getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed the Siena House. The cottage was perfect for a week of just relaxing. A short walk to the beach, great balcony off of the 2nd floor bedroom, great view from the 3rd floor deck, quiet neighborhood, relaxing whirlpool tub. Despite visiting in the coldest January temps in 20 years, we had a great time. The house could use some TLC, leaky shower head, upstairs outside doors that you had no way of locking, internet quit working the 2nd day (made it hard to look up things to do and their locations). Will be back again, in warmer weather.
