Beautiful beach cottage in the perfect location! We enjoyed our spring break stay in this beautifully furnished cottage. It had everything we needed and more! It was very clean and every detail was well thought out! It comfortably fit six people with more room available if needed. We loved the large porches and how quiet it was. The location was perfect… quick walk to the beach, Pompano Joes and coffee! The pool was beautiful, clean and our kids enjoyed swimming in the warm water. We will definitely be back to stay at Beach Cottage 166!

Quiet area    Mar 12, 2022

review star


We had a wonderful experience staying at the beach cottage. The house was very clean and felt very comfortable. Location was perfect. Quiet area despite Destin having so many spring breakers. We walked our 2 dogs daily as the path along the beach is just outside of the complex. It was very nice to have the option of both the pool and the beach since we did have some cooler/windy days. Can’t wait to return again in the future. (VRBO Review)

We had an amazing vacation in Destin while staying at this cottage! It is beautifully furnished, very clean, and very spacious for our family. Everything was exactly as advertised and exceeded our expectations! We loved that we could sit outside on the balcony, walk to the beautiful pool, walk to the beach, and also so close to our favorite restaurant, pompano Jo’s! We definitely will be back and definitely will stay at this beach retreat cottage when we return  [🙂]  thank you again for an amazing place to stay on our vacation!

This is a great location with a semi private beach resort feel. The cottage includes two beach chairs and umbrella. The pool was also nice and had shaded areas. The house was terrific and the bedrooms generously sized. Seeing nearby communities, this was definitely the best one!

pet friendly and reasonably priced    Jul 04, 2020

review star

Our trip was a little last minute and having trouble finding a pet-friendly condo that we liked. This property worked out extremely well. It is a very short walk to the beach (nice that the beach gate entrance is directly across the street). The price was reasonable compared to others. Renee and Laura were extremely communicative and helpful.

First, the picture do not do it justice! The house is lovely and comfortable, with plenty of towels in bathrooms, and appliances and dishes in the kitchen. The neighborhood is quiet, well kept and secure. The pool is large. The walk to the beach is so easy, even with kids and all the accessories! Renee and Laura were very communicative and quick to respond. We’re already talking about staying here again as soon as we can.

VRBO Review #54185664
Our vacation site cancelled the night before we were to leave the next morning and we were already packed! We were desperate to find a place for our family of 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs that was accessible as one of the adults uses a wheelchair for long distances. We found this listing and honestly thought it was too good to be true but took the chance. We are so very happy we did! We absolutely love the cottage as the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths were exactly what we needed! We were so impressed with the cleanliness, access to the beach, the quiet complex and beautiful pool. During these crazy times of sheltering at home, we were very comfortable sheltering in the cottage and fixing almost all of our meals there as the kitchen had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
