Lovely cottage with the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this cottage! We brought our bikes but could've got by without them. The cottage is only a five minute walk from the beach and Camille's Cafe. Only a 2 minute stroll from the pool and located in a darling little neighborhood. The home itself is simply lovely. Very roomy. Nicely decorated. Our 3 year old LOVED the loft. She called it her toy room. She watched a bunch of DVD's and played with all the games and toys. There was so much for her to do and to play with, which was a nice surprise. A perfect rental for families with young children. I was a bit worried knowing there was a metal spiral staircase at first, but she was navigating up and down that thing like a pro after the first 24 hours.

The home was stocked but we would've liked to have coffee filters, a couple extra rolls of tp, and maybe a few dishwashing/laundry soap pods provided, because they're all pretty cheap items but can be annoying to have to go track down and buy while on vacation.

The ladies who manage this property are awesome! Great communication, even helped my husband get his jacket back! Thanks again!

We look forward to coming back to this property on our next trip down south. And aside from the wicked sunburn I got on day 1, I would call it the perfect vacation and rental home. :)

The cottage was adorable!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable and located 1 and 1/2 blocks from the beach. The cottage is located in a private neighborhood with limited aces to vehicles which made it very private and there was virtually no traffic. This makes it perfect for children and adults to ride bikes, walk and stroll around the neighborhood and to the community pool. The only thing I would change is that two of the bedrooms have 2 twin beds. It would be nice if the second bedroom had a queen bed. Other than that, it was perfect. We would definitely stay here again. Scott K

Great house to rent ... very convenient to get around Destin

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the cottage .... everything was as described .... was really close to the beach ... had great weather (except for one day when it poured!) we will probably try to rent it again. (My husband didn't want to leave!!) The owners did a great decorating job and the whole house was very clean.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable stay, very close to beach and centrally located to shopping and restaurants. Our teenagers were able to walk everywhere they wanted to go. There was wifi and cable, beach chairs and noodles to use. Very charming place overall and very safe, with nice neighbors. The pool area was nice, kitchen well stocked. The grill had not been cleaned and there was no laundry detergent but that is the only thing I could even critique. Would highly recommend this for families with kids. Management was great to work with and key codes made entry easy for several people.
