Pretty pastels mark the spot for your perfect Gulf coast vacation! Situated on the corner of Scenic Highway 98, sits the Nantucket Rainbow Cottages community which blends the charm of Nantucket and the beautiful pastels of the coast, in one charming spot.
Just steps from your doorstep is the lush community pool (heated) and common area. You’ll be surrounded by the charming pastel homes as you walk between your vacation townhome and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. After you and your family spend a little time pool side, you can make your way to the beach! Just minutes from your doorstep – the access is across the street. In fact, you’ll stay so close to the pool and so close to the beach, your main vacation dilemma may be where to begin your day. Decisions, decisions!
Once you spend your day relaxing and winding down with your toes in the sugar-white sand and head focused on the Emerald green Gulf waters, you may need to seek a little night life. Lucky you, Destin Commons, which offers dozens of restaurant choices, many retail options, a bowling alley, and a movie theatre are just down the street. If you choose to keep things easier and leave your car, you can take a rented bike down Scenic 98 to discover a new favorite seafood dive. You are really in the center of it all to make this vacation just the way you want it.

Very nice, generally quiet, and just a block from Crystal Beach! Customer service was ok.
We really enjoyed this cottage (we stayed on the bottom floor). The pros include: beach chairs and umbrella included in the unit, and just a short walk to the sand of the public beach. The kitchenette allowed us to eat light and healthy, but when we wanted to eat out, it was only a short walk in the other direction.
We did have some trouble though. The electronic door code quit working halfway through the week, as we found out upon returning from the beach at dusk one evening. The office number had an after hours voicemail that suggested that there is no one to get in touch with until morning. At that point, I wasn't sure if we'd get into the unit for the night. Luckily, someone named Jessica, DID call back within an hour and ultimately texted me a new code for each day of the rest of our stay. The daytime office staff, however, wasn't very thorough in the follow up of our problem, (remember, the only way to get into this unit is via a 6 to 9 digit door code that may or may not work). We ended up leaving the sliding glass door unlocked the rest of the days to assure we weren't standing outside in the dark again! (Probably not the safest thing to do.) In addition, I had to call the office before we arrived the first day to get the door code in the first place, as I did not receive the detailed email ahead of time.
Aside from the above door code mishaps, this was a delightful experience. We are considering coming again later this year or next.
This place was exactly as pictured. It was clean, the bed was nice, the kitchen had every thing we needed, it had a pool and was close to the beach. We will definitely stay here again.
Thank you for your feedback! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again, soon!
