Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 9 adults 2 children
Total beach lover who lives 3 hours from Ocean City, MD and drives 17 hours to Destin because it is the best beach experience EVER. Been renting since 2004 and love to help families have the perfect vacation. I've created my own personalized guide to area and will happily share this info with my guests. I also hate having vacant nights at the beach, so contact me and let's get you to the beach.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Owner chose Destin
Because it is great. 2 pools, a very short and SAFE walk to the beach...all through the resort with no streets or parking lots to cross. There is green space for kids to play, grills for guest use, basketball, shuffleboard, a game room, fitness center... Near great restaurants, shopping, and all kinds of fun things to do like The Track, Big Kahuna's, Destin Harbor, Destin Commons, and much much more.
What makes this Cottage unique
Enjoy a house...a stand alone house with a backyard, a nice back patio to enjoy...plenty of space all the way around, inside and out. Why settle for a cookie cutter condo 6 floors up with a little slab of concrete hanging on the side of the building if you want some outside relaxation while others are still sleeping or getting ready to go out.

Air Force Enlisted
I booked a trip and got more that what I was expecting. It’s purpose was for my son and nephew to enjoy our last trip before leaving to the Air Force. Both boys graduated in June and are set to leave in September. Phil and his wife made there place feel like our place. The kids would return from the beach only to get into the pool next to our cottage. The boys would fish early morning then when we would return from walking the Harbor the boys would hit the beach again. So much to do and everything was close by. This will not be the last time we stay here.. Making plans for another trip..
This was our first time going to destin and this location was perfect for our family!! Walking distance from the beach. Will definitely be returning!
2nd time staying in 3 years. Fantastic location, back door opens onto one of the pools in the community. Just 3-4 minutes walk to the beautiful beach. Just across the street from the outlet mall, and within walking distance of Chick-fil-A and Waffle House. The Wal-Mart is also just few minutes drive away. The traffic in front of the property was quite bad due to large road improvement being made along the entire main road. The house itself could use some upgrades, but everything worked as it should, including dishwasher, microwave, washer, dryer, A/C, and the internet/TV.
Great place close to everything
The cottage is located almost right next to the heater pool. The walk to the beach was about three football fields which if you decided you needed something back at the cottage you really wanted it. The tennis area and other pool and hot tub area was well maintained. The basketball court was more of an afterthought and there were no lines so it’s more of a basketball goal than a court. But hey who goes to the beach to play basketball? The beach is just perfect. The house has a good floor plan but be mindful that the additional bedroom is attached to the bedroom with the queen bed. The master bathroom is sublime. You will have a fun time figuring out which light switch goes with which light. The kitchen had almost everything you would need but bring your own kitchen. knife as all the knifes are dull.
Phil was good to work with and very attentive. There is construction going at the intersection near the entrance so it may take a minute or two longer to exit into the main road and the light only lets maybe six cars through. Overall a great place for families both young and old.
The home was very nice. There were 11 of us and there was plenty of room. One of the pools was just out our back door. The beach was a bit farther than I liked, but it wasn’t bad at all. The community was very nice and secure. Very enjoyable! The only negative was the traffic.
