                                                            Gina S.

                                                            We enjoyed our stay at Cottage by the Sea so much!!! The layout of the house and yard was perfect, and more spacious than we were expecting! It was clean, comfortable, spacious and perfect for our family. We were able to bring our dog who I am confident enjoyed sitting on the front porch as much as we did. The location was just a short walk to the beach as well as to stores and restaurants!! The pool area was great and the screened in porch was lovely as well. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We had a wagon to haul our stuff to the beach which was really helpful. We would love to go back!!! :)

                                                            Great time was had by all

                                                            Eugene W.

                                                            We spent all of February at the Cottage by the Sea and our son, daughter-in-law and grandson joined us for a week. It is a great location and close to everything. There are several close beach accesses with parking and one with public restrooms.

                                                            The Cottage was clean and had everything we needed (except a pizza cutter - ha-ha). We particularly enjoyed the front porch. While it was too cool to swim, the pool deck was a very comfortable place to enjoy the warm Florida sunshine.

                                                            The managers were extremely easy to work with, both in scheduling and in responding to our needs while we were there. We had a minor maintenance issue that we advised the managers about by email on a Friday evening. The manager's son was there first thing Saturday morning to take care of the issue! We were very impressed with the prompt service.

                                                            GREAT RENTAL! WILL DEFINITELY RETURN

                                                            This house was clean and comfortable. It had everything you need for a great vacation. Close to beach. Great pool area. Close to shops. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone to wants to vacation in Destin area. We will definitely return. One month was not long enough!!!!

                                                            Great House, Great Location!

                                                            Theresa G.

                                                            After looking at countless properties online, we chose Cottage By The Sea in Destin and couldn't be happier! The reservation process was very easy and handled professionally. We arrived at the house late Sunday afternoon, and it was clean, cool, and exactly as pictured. The pool area is nice, and the beach is just a short walk (a little over a block, easily walked in about 3-4 minutes with a Public Access walkway to the beach), however if you plan on taking beach chairs and coolers as we did, you may want to drive to drop off your things if you don't have a wagon or cart. We especially enjoyed walking to the beach in the evenings to enjoy the ocean at night. We felt safe and never had reservations about walking in the evening. During the day, the beach is great as well with public restrooms and lifeguards close by. The house is also just 2 blocks from a large shopping mall and anything you could possibly need during your stay is within 2-5 minutes.

                                                            The house itself was perfect and felt just like home (except at the beach!). It is well decorated in neutrals and blues (none of the tacky bright colored beach themes you often find in beach houses!) and we loved the attention to detail, like the nice tile work in the kitchen and master bath. The kitchen is well equipped, just bring along some food, drinks, and extra trash bags, everything else is there. Towels and linens were of good quality, not worn at all, and clean. All three bedrooms were nice, roomy, and comfortable. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the bed in the master was a bit uncomfortable, possibly due to a broken boxspring (?) We left a note and, based on how well the rest of the house was taken care of, we are certain the management company will address it.

                                                            There is a screened in back porch which is nice for those buggy Florida nights, and a large open porch on the front which provided just enough shade and privacy to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. Also, an outdoor shower on the side of the house was handy so we could rinse sand off our feet before coming into the house. We will definitely be back!

                                                            Loved Staying Here!

                                                            I have absolutely no complaints about Cottage by the Sea! My family and I stayed here (with no pets) and it was the perfect setting. The beach was close enough to walk to, the pool was great for days we just wanted to chill out and the house made us feel right at home. The photos were very true to life. Ahh, I miss Destin so much! I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family! What a great vacation! Thanks so much!
