Outdoor eating area, private deck off master bedroom, shared deck off upstairs bedrooms, front and back porches and the roof top deck invite you to spend a lot of time outdoors! The yard is fenced in. Beautifully furnished home is within walking distance of Destin Commons shopping area , numerous restaurants, and two minutes to the Scenic 98 bike/walk path.

It is surrounded by 19 palm trees and several knotty pines, making it quite cozy. The pool is right across the street. The observation deck is great for tanning during the day and relaxing under the moon and stars at night. Don't worry about having to bring or buy beach gear.

Nice time at a lovely house
The house was clean & comfortable for our family of four. The neighborhood is really nice & the walk to the beach isn’t too far. We enjoyed having the pool so close to the house. There were just two things that we didn’t care for: all the floors in the house, including the stairs, were very smooth and slick. We found them to be a slipping hazard. Also, some of the door locks and handles are positioned very low. Our 2.5 year old could easily unlock the door & open it when she wanted to. More secure locks that are higher up would ensure the safety of younger children in the house.
Thank you for the review. We are sorry you found the floors to be slick and the doorknobs accessible to your child. After having to replace numerous rugs and carpeting, we decided that carpet was not practical for a beach house. All of our floors are either tile or bamboo wood, which is so much easier to keep clean, especially with all the sand and in a rental property. Our door knobs are standard height. We recently replaced our front doors and they came with precut holes for the knobs.
Perfect Family Vacation House
We loved our time here! The house was a short walk to the beach and it was a huge help to have beach towels, a wagon, beach chairs, and more provided! We loved the house itself too - it was a great layout for the family and we didn't feel like we were stepping all over each other, even with four adults, two kids, and several dogs. It's a quiet neighborhood, but super walkable with the quaint sidewalks and picket fences everywhere. We would highly recommend staying here! The only thing I'd change is that the beach doesn't allow dogs... but that's not an issue with the house at all, just something we didn't realize about the beach before we booked. The dogs still loved a good walk around the neighborhood though!
A beautiful, well-kept and equipped, roomy vacation home
We brought 4 teen boys down for Spring Break, having never been to Destin before. The cottage was a great deal considering the price, amenities, and proximity to the beach. It was about a 6 minute walk (sidewalk) but the access is a rare public one with a small building with bathrooms, changing rooms and exterior showers. We’d pay a lot more for private beach access, or at least be in a big multi-unit building. The kitchen had EVERYTHING, the beds were comfortable, nice TV set up (the boys cared about that). The washer/dryer were huge and super helpful. The little community is very cute. I figured there might be more families/kids around but we didn’t really see many people out and about. It was very quiet.
One thing I’d say is that besides the beach, not much is walkable. There’s a huge beautiful shopping area a quick 6 minute drive that could be walkable but there’s a big highway to cross and there IS a crosswalk, but it just seemed better to drive the few times we went over for groceries, a movie on a overcast day, dinner.
This was the only drawback, but it has to do more with this area of Destin as opposed to the cottage, which again, we loved. There’s more driving to places than walking, and traffic during spring break was understandably congested. With teenagers, keeping them off electronics and entertained is more challenging than with younger kids or adults (like us) who are content enjoying the outdoors. I can see why Destin is such a draw, though, for northern residents wanting a beautiful, warm(er) road trip vacation.
The owners were very helpful with very good communication. We appreciated their attention to detail and highly recommend this rental!
Great cottage in a fabulous location!
This home is in a great location and is well equipped with everything you will need. It is really close to the pool and a short walk to the beach. Golf courses and restaurants are in close proximity as well. It was perfect for my husband and me and our senior labrador Barney. We didn't use the upstairs at all.....but it would also be great for a family or girls trip!!
Peace and quiet with no worries.
The 6 weeks went way too quick. Our first stay in this house. Four years in another home in same asrea. Found it very quiet with friendly neighbors. House well stocked with everthing needed.
Great winter break
We really enjoyed our month at the house. The attention to detail is really appreciated - from labeled switches to an array of kitchen items! The house is ready from the moment you walk in! Terri and Steve are great to work with and so responsive. Our wish list would be a king bed downstairs 😜 The yard and 3 levels of decks are great to get some Florida sunshine. We will return. Snowbird heaven.
