Always love staying at the Sand n Sea. Kathy is wonderful to work with. Only downfall that we find with this rental is living room furniture is very uncomfortable and if you have more than 4 people you are out of luck for seating. Everything else is to our liking.

Great house and complex

  • 5 of 5

Love the whole complex--We've stayed in this house before and plan on returning every year. House is well furnished and very clean. A very short stroll to the beach. Pool is also nice and well furnished with shady and sunny areas. Complex is small and quite.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sand 'N Sea Cottage this year. It is very spacious and had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our week stay.

We have stayed in several of the cottages at Beach Retreat and have never been disappointed. When we visit Destin this is where we stay. We have stayed other places but they never compare to Beach Retreat. We always come back here! We love the pool and the short walk to the beach.

I highly recommend Kathy! She has helped us plan multiple vacations and we hope to have her help with many more! She is always helpful and quick to respond to any questions.

I promise you will not be disappointed with this cottage or with Kathy! We will definitely be back!
