First of all, as far as I am concerned, Destin is the premier coastline/beach area in Florida. And having a house on a street, versus a condo on the 4th floor, for example, was a wonderful way to experience the area for me. The house is everything the reviewers said it was and more. The fact that the owner (Molly) takes dogs gives it a "sixth" star in my book.
Yes, it is older, but Molly keeps it in excellent condition. The only thing in need of upgrading may be the electrical outlets, but that was not a significant problem. This 2 bedroom house, with sit in, screened porch and large back yard, is a block from the miles-long, white sand beach and green-blue gulf in a secluded section of both homes, rentals and condos. It is in walking distance from retail heaven! The house is located between scenic highway 98 and business 98, so it remains tucked away from the "hubbub", but yet very accessible to everything you might need. Within walking distance is a huge Bass Pro shop, a movie theater and all the stores and restaurants you can handle. By auto, it is only 40 minutes to Pensacola to the west and 50 minutes to the very popular Panama City Beach. The airport is not far and medical care is close as well.
Back to the house-we stayed there off season (Jan.-Feb.) and it was wonderfully quiet at night. The house also has a brand new washer and dryer off the 2nd bedroom. And, you don't have to bring much in the way of household items-Molly provides more than enough!!
She was always available by cell for answers to questions and her Mom, Kathy, lives behind the house if we needed anything immediate, which we never did. All in all, it was a memorable experience. I would recommend this home and it's owner to anyone who would enjoy the
the experience of "living" in Destin, Florida.
We felt we were one the Beach sitting Inside.
Older, Relaxing, Comfortable, well Equipped and Great Neighborhood. Sitting inside, I felt on the beach. This has been one of the best owners we've had the pleasure to work with in our 10 years. I enjoyed this better than in the high rise. Thank You again for our 3 week of Enjoyment. Our Shepherd enjoyed her walks to the beach dock, the neighborhood and chasing the ball in the large back yard.
Hope to book again!
We planned this trip at the last minute so I booked this cottage asap. I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious this place is ! Much better than the condo we stayed at a few months ago. With 3 kids and a dog we felt much more comfortable and right at home. The owners (especially the check in lady Ms.Kathy ) are the best ! All of my questions were answered and we really felt welcomed. I was also surprised how close to the beach it is. We will definitely book again!
Perfect for us
We were in Florida for a wedding and needed a nearby dog friendly accommodation. This cottage was perfect. The bedding was excellent and the bath was adorned with very plush towels. Not only was there convenient access to the beach, but to our surprise, excellent restaurants were also within walking distance. Due to the prevailing drought in Northern Florida, the back yard was not as advertised and needed attention.
It was kind of a last minute weekend get away and they were brilliant! Cottage is simple but very confortable, extremely clean. They provide chairs, umbrella. My dogs were very welcome. It s less than a block from the beach and the beach access is right in front. I run every morning and it was right there! Restaurants, shopping less than a mile away! Thank you Molly
"Best spring break ever" (from 16 year old so that says a lot)
We LOVED the beach cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for and needed! The beds were comfy, we had plenty of room to spread out and were close to everything. I'm disabled and the walk was close enough to the beach for me to do. The teens loved getting up and walking to the beach every morning. Everything they needed was provided (chairs, etc.). If you want a homey place, this is it. We're definitely going back!
