Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice house with no issue that would destroy a vacation. We were notified by email when the power was off due to the storm. Great place to stay!

Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Nice amenities. Had everything we looked for in the kitchen. Air conditioning was quite chilly. Gated, Quiet area with nice balcony and 2 private parking spaces. Clean and comfortable. Nice pool close by, but NOT so close you can hear the noise.

Cons: Kitchen on the 2nd level -just so you know (It wasn't a big deal, but had to switch bedrooms with my in-laws who found the stairs challenging, which was my mistake)

Doesn't come with umbrella and chairs (Again, my mistake for assuming and they rent for a about $150 for the week)

Living room furniture consists of a small sofa and loveseat. We had our 4 kids and my in-laws and found it difficult to watch a movie together comfortably. Normally we wouldn't care since the beach is first priority, but when the rain moved in, we wanted to relax together.

Overall, I would rent it again. The owner, Kathy was very nice to work with and answered my text when we had any issues.

Owner's Response: Hi Heather, Thank you for taking the time to write this review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay despite the surprise of the living area being on the upper floor. I will check the web sites to see if I can clarify that more!

beautiful, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Each time we come stay here I am reminded of how much I love it. The quiet circle with its grove of trees is perfect for relaxing when we return from the beach (just steps across the street). The living area of the house is so pretty and the furniture so comfy. The kitchen is stocked with everything we need to cook and enjoy family get-togethers. We love it!

Love this Beach Home - Clean, Nice, Large

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 has stayed here 3 times now. We love everything about this home - very large bedrooms, clean, 3 full bathrooms, comfortable beds, short walk to the beach, and nice pool. I cannot say enough good things about this home. Sleeps 8 very comfortably in beds (2 king beds). Master bedroom is huge with a great bathroom. Would highly recommend this home to any family needing 3 bedrooms or more. Walk to the beach is about 200 yards.

Map

Golf: Of course we can not forget to mention Golf!

Dont forget our wonderful Golf courses!

There are (10) Championship golf courses within four (4) miles of the Beach Retreat Cottage community. Each offers its own character and challenges. All are public courses with full service facilities with a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons and pro shop stocked to meet your needs.

Destin, Florida is known as the ”World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” & boasts of being home to the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida. Fish from the beach or boat. If you do not want to bring your boat, one of Destin’s many charter boats would love the opportunity to take you out for full or half day excursions. Water surrounds Destin with the intercoastal waterway to the north and Gulf on the south, creating an abundance of water sports available, including kayaking, wave running, parasailing, kite surfing, snorkeling and so much more!
