About the property

A 3-story beach home with decks, porches, screen room, tower, near pool & beach!

'Paradise Cottage' is a spacious three-story, cottage-style home located in the heart of Crystal Beach, one of Destin's most popular communities due to its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping.

***Please Note: You must be at least 25 years of age to book Paradise Cottage. College-age spring break groups are not permitted, regardless of chaperone.***

Located on a tranquil cul-de-sac the home is just one block from the beach and within walking distance to four major shopping centers including the newly expanded Destin Commons where you will find an abundance of shopping opportunities w/stores like Bass Pro Shop, Belk, Abercrombie, etc.. Also holds The AMC Movie Theater and many other shops and restaurants. In addition, several of Destin's finest golf resorts are within a 5 minute drive from the home. To give you an idea of how close these award winning courses are, here is a list: Regatta Bay (1) mile, Kelly Plantation (1) mile and Indian Bayou (3) miles for starters.

Perfect for a family or a couples' vacation every bedroom has a private bath, flat screen TV with Cable. Relax in the large jacuzzi tub in the Master Bath or take a siesta on the screened porch just off the Master Bedroom. On evenings when you want to dine in there's a large stainless steel gas grill on a shady grilling deck with plenty of cookware and a pantry full of spices and staples to make your meal a bit easier to prepare. The large open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living area adds to the enjoyment. As an added bonus, we have updated all of these rooms with new furnishings and accentuated the kitchen with granite, plaster backsplash and cool coastal paint for the cabinetry including all bathrooms! Additionally, there are 2 queen sofas in the living room if needed along with the tower/bunk room!

Enjoy our newly renovated air-conditioned Paradise Tower which has added a Twin Day Bed w/Trundle to the top floor! This room also includes a flat screen TV and additional remote A/C unit. Perfect for teens or an extra guest to enjoy the view from the top of Destin! Gulf view, morning sunbathing, afternoon sea breezes and fabulous evening sunsets make the third floor deck one of the home's main attractions. If there 's a book worm in your group, the third floor tower/widow's watch, is surrounded by windows allowing endless natural light. Also, coffee it up or wine it down each day on the relaxing wrap-around front porch w/a plantation swing.

Cool off in the community pool conveniently located just across the street which is also heated in the spring and fall months.

Stay with us and you will see why 'Paradise Cottage' is truly a vacation home deserving of its name!

We were pleased with the home and the short walking distance to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples staying for almost a week and plenty of room to spread out. We loved the long kitchen table with plenty of seating. We spent our mornings on the front porch swing, afternoons at the beach and evenings BBQing on back porch.

Very nice house with plenty of sitting and mingling area at table and living room

  • 5 of 5

Things are a little hard to find in the kitchen as it is a bit small I really loved that the rooms have their own baths! Also, we enjoyed such a large space to sit and visit at the end of the day with the big table and two sofas. The wagon was a definite plus. As was the front porch swing. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Hi Julie - thanks for your review and feedback. After peak season, we are planning on changing out some of the cabinets under the kitchen island and reorganizing things a bit in the kitchen to make it easier to find things - hopefully that will help! :) Come back and see us again soon! - Kim & Andy

Great place, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This place has plenty of room and lots of bathrooms, each room has their own! It's a 2 min walk to pool if that and maybe 5 min walk to cystal beach. Positives, decent grill, good towels, good cooking ware, kitchen items, having a washer and dryer, the furniture on deck and over all furniture. The cleaning crew did a great job! There was always plenty of hot water and air worked great. Location!! Location location!! Of course great! We have 3 families and all we're satisfied!
