YOU MUST BE 25 YEARS OLD TO RENT!!! NO exceptions!
I'm trying to fill the rest of this. Visit now thru May 26. I've dropped the price from $299/night to $199/n!!! That is going to save someone over $100/night after tax is included.
June 4-8, 4 nights would normally be TOTAL all in cost of $1998.49. I've reduced that to a TOTAL all in cost of $1569!
Lowest rates in Mainsail cottages! My neighbors are not happy with me because my cottage is nice and my rates are low! Wow- you would probably spend more for a single lousy room at the Ramada. Why not stay in a 3 BR cottage for my 'I hate vacancy' rate?
I typically fill about half the calendar every year with returning guests. We have a wonderful guest retention/return rate because the place is beautiful, the process is easy and the owner is very customer oriented. (If I may say so myself!)
HERE'S THE DEAL....anytime after Labor Day and before Jan 1, with a minimum stay of 3 nights, the rate is $129/night plus cleaning and tax. For a long term visit of 30 days or more, CALL ME AND LET'S MAKE A DEAL! We have a great snowbird community that will make you feel very welcome. Try it one year and you'll want to make it an annual event!
Very short walk to beach and a heated pool out the back door. Silver Sands outlets right across the street. If it feels like a home, that's because it is. 1700 square feet of living space can comfortably sleep 11. TV, VCRs and DVD players both upstairs and downstairs keep the kids occupied while mom and dad dress for a night out at one of the area's fine restaurants.
Need to hold costs down? Full kitchen and BBQ grills allow you to eat in. Care for a view? Private balcony off upstairs bedroom allows for scenic overlook. We are in a quiet, gated community so you need to make no effort to avoid noise and crowds.
We came to Destin on vacation for the first time in 1997 and loved it so much, we eventually bought this 2nd home. We need the rental income and have tried to make our cottage as enticing as can be so you will want to come back time and time again.

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.

A wonderful, relaxing retreat!
Our family came to celebrate our daughter's graduation from college. Visiting family could not believe how perfect the accommodations were for this event. We had plenty of room for everyone. We also enjoyed the many amenities offered at Mainsail. The overall feeling was peaceful and family members came and went to the beach as desired. Others relaxed on the back patio with coffee and shared stories with younger generations. We had almost everything we needed at our fingertips. Winn Dixie was only a couple blocks away and Silver Sands Outlet Mall was just across the main thoroughfare. We were close to many other conveniences as well. Mainsail is gated and the security provided added to our feelings of serenity. Although we were not on the beachfront, the walk was reasonable and we had the heated pool and grills available just out the back door. The property also allowed plenty of room for parking which we definitely needed as family arrived and departed at various times throughout the week. I could not give five stars due to the fact that when the maintenance company was contacted about some needed repairs they promised to come and never did. The blue sleeper sofa in the smallest room was broken and we were fortunate that we had a spare air mattress to use or we would have been short on "beds". Overall, we had a very pleasant experience and would love to stay here again sometime.
Thank you for the review. One additional comment regarding the management company. When the guest concerns were passed along to the mgt company by the owner earlier today, the mgt company stated that they had a pleasant conversation with the guest and were told that none of the concerns were urgent and that they need not come right over. Based on those comments, so as to not disrupt the guests, the management company had scheduled the repairs (battery replacement in clock and mechanism on sleep sofa) for today. To say that they failed to respond in a timely fashion is a bit of a misrepresentation of the facts.
From a yearly customer!
Amazing!! This place is well worth the money. It's just steps from the ocean and has a heated pool out the back door. The cottage is always meticulous when we arrive. It's a family friendly area, very peaceful and relaxing location to get away. This was our 7th stay and we always look forward to next year.
Phil makes the booking process seemless. He ensures that from reservation to check in and check out, the customer is well informed and at ease.
I'm always happy to hear kind compliments.
Beautiful cottage; close to the pool; lovely flowers in bloom; nice walk to the beach for sunset; the stay was far too short; owner very helpful.
Thank you for the kind compliments. It was a pleasure having you stay in our cottage and we hope to hear from you for your next visit.
A BEAUTIFUL HOME/COTTAGE
My family first spent a week in this beautiful home/ cottage in 2011. Since then we have returned 6 more times and stayed in cottage 25. I am not sure why it is called a cottage as it is a fully furnished beautiful home. We bring our children along with their spouses and there is plenty room for all of us. The house is always very clean when we arrive. There is a pool within steps of your back door. The beach is a very short walk. All we have to do is pack our clothes and leave. Everything you need is in the house. Where else could we stay with all these amenities and feel at home. Phil is great to work with. I would recommend this cottage/ home to anyone that is looking to vacation in Destin. It is within walking distance to the Sands Outlet Mall and several other places. My family and I will continue to stay in cottage 25 while in Destin. We feel as if we are at home. Thank you Phil for sharing your home with us!
thank you for the kind compliments. We always try to make sure that our guests have a wonderful experience and we love when they return year after year!
A very nice home away from home
We spent a week at Mainsail #25 and had a great experience. The cottage is spacious with a well-appointed kitchen which was really nice since we prepared most of our meals there. The beds are comfortable, there are plenty of sheets and towels, and the atmosphere is homey. The pool truly is just a few steps away and the poolside grilling area was very nice. We had a problem with the icemaker, so we contacted the management agent who dispatched a very nice and qualified appliance repairman who got everything back in order. One thing -- if you have a young child, you might want to bring a portable baby gate and a high chair.There are stairs which our grandson found very alluring!
We were there after the busy season, so we didn't have to fight crowds. I'm not sure how the crowds are in June - mid-August. Althought the beach is definitely further than a "two-minute walk," the walk was a pleasant one and the beach was beautiful. When we return to the Miramar/Destin area, we'll be sure to contact Phil for our lodging needs. He was great to work with and a gracious host.
thank you Kathleen. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to hearing from you again. One other comment, I think I'll change the listing note of "2 minute walk" to "short walk through resort-no streets to cross".
