We absolutely loved out time at La Dolce Vita! It is everything that the pictures show it to be. Charming and comfortable; it is designed to be beautiful all the while being comfortable and endearing. There were six of us two adults and 4 young adults 19-20. It allows for privacy and enjoying time together. It is literally 3-4 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Destin. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to anyone going to Destin! Thank you!

Relaxing Beach Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a relaxing time at this beautiful house. The amenities were plentiful and well maintained. The walk to the beach is short and convenient. We plan to come back in the near future!

Beautiful house close to beach, community pool and great dining.

  • 5 of 5

La Dolce Vita is a great property. Comfortable, convenient and well appointed.we especially loved the porches, cooking out and making use of the spacious kitchen. I was traveling with one other adult, two teenagers and two pre-teens. The house gave us all plenty of space to hang out together, or find a cozy place to retreat. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to go back for a return visit soon!

Beautiful, clean home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

I had always wanted to stay in this home but it stays pretty booked in advance and we usually have to book last minute due our jobs. I lucked up and the home was empty the first week of May. It fully lived up to my hopes and expectations. It was our first time staying with Cottages near the Sea, but we will be renting from them from now on. Linsey is very easy to work with. The company has very reasonable rates for the area. The home was exceptionally clean. It was well furnished and beautifully decorated. I loved the porches and the Clipper Cove neighborhood is very quiet. I was worried about noise as the house backs up to a main street, but I was never once bothered by traffic. The house is next to the walkway to the beach and it also has an entrance onto Hutchinson directly from the backyard. The home is approximately two blocks from the beach and there is a public beach access directly at the end of the street. Great home and company!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for my husband's 40th birthday in the end of August! It was the 2 of us, my in laws and our dog. There is a fence in the backyard but it is not fully closed. We ended up getting a very large leash so she could stay outside with us, without running away! The house is beautiful! It has everything you need for the kitchen (appliances, tools, pots, pans, glasses, silverware, etc). There is free wireless internet, and tvs in the living room, and the bedrooms. There are board games and books as well. It feels like a home, not like a rental. The neighborhood is also very pretty and quiet. It is a block from the beach, really easy to take chairs, and all the beach stuff. There are some beach chairs in the house. There is a grill, it worked ok, but the house could use a new one. There are several family restaurants a few blocks form there, you can drive, but you can easily walk as well. Very close to shops, and there is a cafe a block away, across from the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and we'll be back for sure!
