Gorgeous Cottage in an Ideal Location!

This gorgeous new 2 BR/2 BA guest cottage enjoys an ideal location in the center of the best part of Destin (Crystal Beach) a very short walk to the beach, yet it's private at the same time! If you prefer not to spend your vacation traipsing the halls of hotels or sharing condo elevators with strangers, enjoy this stunning but cozy cottage in its super convenient location! One-half block (less than 5 minutes walk) to the beach--including showers, restrooms, free kids classes—and a lovely cafe, and 2-4 blocks to 2 grocery stores, over 30 restaurants, movie theaters, bowling, kids play area, and more!

The cottage features a soaring cathedral ceiling in the living/kitchen/dining area, unique finishes, and a one-of-a-kind feel--to make the time when you're not on the beach as enjoyable and relaxing as your time on the beach. The first-floor master suite has a king bed of luxurious memory foam, double sinks, and a large shower. The second suite is upstairs and offers either 2 twin beds (also memory foam) or they can be converted into a king on request. There is also sleeper sofa in the loft. While 8 people are allowed per ordinance, we request no more than 6 adults for your comfort. Amenities include a high-def TV, wifi, large deck, outdoor shower, full laundry, gas stove, and much more.

Important: This cottage is part of a family homestead and is only available when part of our family is away. With all separate walls, doors, and windows from the host's home, it is a perfect combination of having a home to yourself, and yet having the hosts adjacent if you need anything or want to ask advice from locals. Driveway is shared.

Note: We've purposely kept some info on here vague to deter scammers. For serious renters, we can prove that the listing is real and your payments are safe.

Best vacation!    Oct 01, 2023

review star

The hosts were so polite and made us feel right at home. They gave excellent recommendations for food and activities and were absolutely flexible, we even decided to stay an extra night.
The Cottage was large and lit with excellent natural Florida sunshine, while being tucked away in a nice private little cove off the street. The beach was so close and all the local restaurants were top notch.
It was a beautiful and excellent location, away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets in Destin, but so close, you weren’t missing anything. Minutes away from all the great spots.
Best vacation!

Week end get away

I rented the cottage for Labor Day weekend to spend with my son as it was reasonable close to Air Force base.The cottage was close to beach. It had all the amenities you would need., very comfortable, The one thing that stood out above all else was the Andersons Andie and Wendy treated us like family. We feel like we have made life long friends. You would not be disappointed in this cottage. We will be returning and would definitely recommend to anyone. You will not find a better rental.

Just plain happy in the heart of Destin

Just plain happy in the heart of Destin with excellent hosts and convenience to shopping, movie theater, all the restaurants. We walked two blocks to world-class beaches and felt the goodness of the sand between our toes. We had a delightful coffee at camellias. Bang bang Dinner we had at bonefish Grill. Relaxing on the deck with a glass of chilled beverage. We will be back again soon to this clean, fresh and inviting private beach home. We made memories for a lifetime.
