Hi Vacation Hunter!

I know your tired eyes have been combing through lots of ONLINE listings so here are the top reasons you should stay in The Sea Breeze Cottage:









MORE GREAT REASONS to stay in our cottage.....

SWIMMING POOL/ HOT TUB, which is heated in the cold season.

LARGE BALCONY with double french doors, where you will spend time relaxing while sipping on your favorite drink and relaxing after a fun day in the sun!

CUTE, COMFORTABLE & ROOMY Our 3 bedroom/ 3 bath cottage has a King bed in the upstairs master, a queen bed in the downstairs guest bedroom and the third bedoom has a twin bed, and a twin/twin bunk w trundle. We also have a queen sleeper sofa for additional guest. We have plenty of storage space so you won't feel cramped...we regularly visit our cottage, so we want it to be nice for ourselves too. :)

FULL KITCHEN equipped with all you need for at home dining...including a blender for smoothies or other icy treats. So plan to cook up your daily catch or pick up some fresh seafood at the market. The grocery store is minutes away.

WASHER & DRYER in the unit, save your coins for the wishing well!

WALKING TRAIL just in front of our gated community. You can't help but to WANT to go for long walks on the lovely palm tree-lined path.

VALUE: While we're not beachfront, our cottage is the next best thing because were just a 2 minute walk to Gulf

What to do besides enjoy our wonderful beach...

Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices. Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding. We are a short 2 mile drive to the Silver Sands mall to the West, or luxury shopping at Destin Commons to the East. Kenny D's, The Crab Trap, and Pompano Joe's are all within walking distance to The Beach Retreat Cottages. We encourage you to leave menus of your favorite restaurants when you come.

More great shopping can be found at the Destin Commons outdoor mall.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I stayed at Serenity Now for one week and had a wonderful time. We had been to Destin three times before and always stayed at a beach condo. We were a little concerned that this cottage is not on the beach but were pleasantly surprised that it was only a 2 minute walk away. The cottage was as beautiful as the pictures indicate and was immaculate. Everything we needed for cooking was in abundant supply and linens were plentiful. The beach, neighborhood, landscaping, pool--all were wonderful. The cottage managers, Kastlekeepers, were very easy and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Serenity Now and definitely want to return soon.

We couldn't have been more pleased. The cottage was very clean and provided everything we needed .

  • 5 of 5

This is our first experience in the area. We have always vacationed further south in Florida. The first 10 day weather was a little disappointing, cool and very rainy ( 8+ ) inches. the rest of the time it was pleasant. The other guests in the Beach Retreat complex were very welcoming and fun. They made us feel very welcome. We never lacked of things to do. Friday night get-togethers, beach time, relaxing around the beautiful, WARM, pool, or just enjoying the area and all it provides.

We hope we will be able to return next winter; providing we have a place to stay in one of the cottages. Please keep us in mind for the month of Feb. and into the moth of March.

Sincerely, Bill and Pat Kuse

Everything they said it would be!

My family of 8 loved this rental! The rooms were all sized perfectly, it was spotless when we got there, and the walk to the beach was perfect! The beach itself was amazing, as was the beach service with the umbrella's and chairs! The owners were very responsive to the 1 issue we did have, but that was nothing they could've foreseen.

Overall, very impressed with the property!

Home Away from Home: Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - the Sea Breeze Cottage exceeded our expectations! If you're looking for a Destin-area rental with the comforts of home, privacy, and a beautiful beach look no further!

The cottage is extremely clean, roomy, and furnished nicely. It doesn't feel like a rental. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking every meal. It is 10 minutes from the grocery store (and any other convenience you're looking for).

We had 3 adults and 4 kids under the age of 10 and we never felt like we were on top of each other. When we came back after a day at the beach or hanging out at the pool, we were able to kick back and relax. In the evening, we enjoyed cocktails on the balcony. It was surprising how quiet and peaceful the neighborhood was with as many vacationers were around.

The beach is a 5 minute walk from the front door. We spent most of our time at the beach, but there's plenty to do and see all around the area.

Working with Kathy made the planning easy. She answered all of our questions and helped us book our reservation within 48 hours. She was a call away during our stay if we had any issues. Thanks, Kathy!

Again, if you're looking for a beautiful beach and a perfect place to stay, you found it. We look forward to returning in the future!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, absolutely love the Destin area and all it has to offer. Wish the pool was a little better maintained, we were told that management had changed the type of care it was given. Would still return, great house and relaxing area.
