Isn’t it easy to get sick of work, sick of stress and sick of a fast-paced life these days! The cure? A quiet getaway at Doctor’s Orders in Kokomo Cove! This Destin vacation rental sits just enough off the beaten path to offer real peace and tranquility- there are no parking lots, cement jungles or noisy neighbors here! It’s wooded surroundings encompass views of two inlets of Destiny West lake speckled with charming wildlife that call it home.
Another pleasant side effect of Doctor’s Orders is its location near Destin’s most powerful medicine- the soothing Gulf of Mexico. Head two blocks from the front porch and see the sun sparkling on the emerald water like diamonds, feel the powder-soft sand between your toes and listen to the rustle of sea oats in the Gulf Breeze. That powerful combination is sure to heal whatever ails you! You'll be able to control the camera presented by our closest restaurant on the beach, The CrabTrap. Our private beach is a couple hundred feet to the right of this public beach and usually has roughly one tenth the people on it!)
Kokomo Cove’s entry also crosses a newly paved walking path that stretches the length of the beach road. Restaurants, shops and even golf courses dot this scenic route and provide entertaining waypoints for a sunny bike ride. We provide bikes, kayak, chairs, and umbrellas!
Doctor’s Orders has been totally renovated in 2015. Your home by the sea features a calming interior with worry-free Onyx Tile floors, a beautifully updated kitchen and new HD TV's. Additional ‘recovery aids’ include an eye-catching oceanscape décor, the convenience of a laundry room as well as the luxury of a Jacuzzi bath in the master suite. Plus, the private pool deck, two balconies with water views and a private grill are extra perks to this rejuvenating vacation home.

This provides you with the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a beautiful sunset sky.

This house had everything we needed. The location was perfect!
What a great vacation! We had an Incredible experience. The house was so cute and comfy. The pool was an added bonus! The location was perfect. We could walk to so many things. My favorite part was waking up early and walking to the beach with my Doggie. It was was so peaceful and beautiful. I will recommend this house to all my friends and family. I am so grateful to have had so many memories made at this location.
I give it an A+!!!
Very Happy Customer
Home away from home
This little piece of heaven is located in a quiet, quaint neighborhood across from the beach. The home was inviting from the moment you walked in. The colors are soothing, kitchen has everything you need, rooms are spacious. We went with 2 other families. I personally loved having a room with bunk beds for our kids. Chairs and umbrellas were available for your days at beach. Master sweet is large with a large bathroom. This home lacks nothing. We have recommended this home and will return. Thank you!
Beautifully decorated and clean house
This is the first time that I had rented a house for a vacation. It is a beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean house. There were eleven of us from my family that stayed and there was plenty of room. The host was very accommodating and I would definitely rent it again!
We arrived at this quite lovely beach house with 10 adults and a couple of little ones. The weather did not cooperate for the first few days but it did not stop us from making great family memories and having alot of fun. The house was well stocked with just about anything you needed. We thoroughly enjoyed riding the kayak. We played Frisbee on the beach and flew kites. We took our washer boards and played washers, and we played in the sand with the little ones with the sand toys that were provided by the owners.. We also took our boat for fishing and also drove out and watched the dolphins, followed by grabbing a bite to eat at Harborside. We did some shopping and cooked a bit as well. The guys played golf one day while the women and kids played putt putt. Every night after supper, we all gathered at the table and played games and just enjoyed each other's company. We would like to thank the owners, who were very friendly and helpful, for sharing their beach house with us and allowing us to have these great memories of Destin. We hope to return when there is no chance of a cool front so we can swim a bit in the ocean and the pool without being cold. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to rent a nice clean place for a couple of families, or a large family. Having beds for 12 was nice. I don't think you can find a house any cleaner and one that makes you feel at home as this one.
Awesome Beach House
This beach house is amazing and would recommend it for anyone. They have a king size bed, 2 queen 4 beds, a sofa bed and 2 sets of bunk beds to help your family fit. The house had everything you needed to cook, relax, and sleep. The only thing you needed was clothes and food. The walk to the beach is not far at all (2 blocks if that). Being on the private beach was so peaceful and the house provided beach umbrellas, chairs and toys for the kids so you don't have to travel with them. Would recommend the house to anyone no matter the age!!
Excellent Stay! Would Rent Again!
Family of 9 (mix of adults and children) stayed at Drs Orders for 6 days, and wow we had a wonderful stay at this house! The location is great - very close to the beach and you get a great view of the lake from the back porch. Very comfortable accommodations and well stocked kitchen, plus the house is so charmingly decorated! However, Franni, the owner, makes this a standout rental. She is so pleasant and went above and beyond to make sure my family had a wonderful stay. Prior to our stay there was a problem with the sofa bed, and Franni called to communicate the issue (knowing we would need to use that bed) and offered a solution. She kept in touch to make sure the replacement bed arrived, that we found the bed comfortable, and to make sure we were enjoying our stay - even when I wasn't the most responsive (and having too much fun at the beach!). I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Franni for the wonderful stay!
