Kono Cottage was an excellent home for our family vacation. There was plenty

of room for our family and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The layout of the

home was excellent with three bedrooms for the adult couples, and another

bedroom for kids with bunk beds. Amazing 60 inch TVs with surround sound in

Living and Master bedroom. This house is very comfortable. The kitchen has

everything that we needed. Wi-Fi worked well and the password is on the

refrigerator. We loved the proximity to the wonderful neighborhood pool.

While the pool was a large enough pool that we could usually find a nice

area to play with family. The beach is a short walk or we could take the

trolley so we enjoyed going to the beach daily. There are plenty of food

options nearby, and the Whole Foods is new. All of the stores are very

convenient. We will chose Kono Cottage to stay at for all of vacations form

now on. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Our group of 3 families (6 couples + 6 college students) spent 4 awesome nights at Kono cottage. This was our 6th trip to Destin over the past 16 yrs and it was the first rental house which was not directly on the beach. During the booking process, I forwarded to other families few options to choose. But I made the final decision to deposit for this house, simply because Cheryl was very easier to deal with and the whole booking process was very efficient. After the booking, the other families wished that I would opt for beach front property, but when we stayed here, everybody really liked it. The whole house was clean, well decorated, plenty of room for 12 adults, the kitchen was well equipped and the walk to the beach was actually shorter than we anticipated. There was public parking right at Scenice 98, Crystal beach area was very nice and clean. We had a very positive experience and enjoyed our short Destin Reunion. Thank Cheryl for a memorable and sweet time at Kono Cottage!

This home was BEAUTIFUL! My parents, grandmother, my 2 year old and I stayed here for 5 days. We didn't have to leave the gated community bc the pool was very nice and the home was very comfortable. everything you needed was in The home. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of towels. The home was big enough for everyone to have their own room and it was still some room left. The owner Cheryl and her asst Stephanie was very nice! We Will definitely be back next year! !!

You simply cannot find a nicer home/gated community for vacations than the Kona Cottage! Home is beautifully appointed, spacious & just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Cheryl was awesome to work with in making our families spring break home a reality! We will rent from Cheryl/stay at Kona here for many years to come.

Thank You Cheryl!!

The Lewis Family!

We came to Destin for a late summer/early fall vacation. We enjoyed this home so much! The community was adorable and very kid friendly. The pool is one of a kind! The manager, Cheryl was very helpful and friendly and gave us so many wonderful restaurant suggestions. The house was super clean and had everything we needed and more. We can't wait to come back!
