Hidden Gem    Sep 21, 2020

Love, love, love this beach cottage! It was tucked away from the Main Street and very quiet. It was a little over 2 blocks to the beach so the walk wasn’t bad. The house had plenty of room and all necessities. The outdoor pool was nice and relaxing. We actually spent more days at the pool than the beach. It was the perfect getaway. We would definitely stay here again. Rita was a great host!

Perfect For Us!    Jul 11, 2020

review star

We could not have been happier with this place! It was perfect for me, my husband, our 2 teenage boys, and of course, Dash our Rat Terrier. I was in awe over the landscaping - I love palm trees! The house is warm and inviting and the pool was fantastic. We spent more time hanging out at the house than we did on the beach. I know that is crazy but it was wonderful to have that quality time since I'll be moving my oldest to college in a few short weeks. It was a perfect vacation at a perfect time. Thank you, Rita!

Fabulous get away !! Cute cottage!!!    Jun 20, 2020

review star

I loved Rita’s rental!! She is wonderful to rent from! From the moment we got there we loved it! The cute cottage with all the palms and the cute surfboard shower to rinse off the sand. A nice dip in the pool! Tucked away , so quaint and relaxing! My 2 boys loved having a private pool and at night the different colors ! We rented a golf cart and had the best time! Just a short walk to the gorgeous beach! My little dog was in heaven watching the lizards that make it so tropical! He loved the morning walks. Rita’s rental had everything to make it such a comfortable stay! Such a convenient location too with stores near by! I didn’t want to leave! I already want to go back! Thanks Rita!!

I could write a really long review and it would not fully express how amazing this house/pool/yard/location is. So I will sum it up with this: we went for a week and stayed for a month! BEWARE....the day you drive away on the brick paver driveway with the outdoor surfboard shower in the rearview... you’ll be bummed to be leaving this perfect place!

Joe and Shannon, It was wonderful having you and your family stay with us! We look forward to having you again soon and you are always welcome at Off the Grid! Take care, Rita

As I sit in the backyard by the pool it is hard to imagine going home. We have been here for two amazing months. The house is beautiful and the kitchen is well stocked. The beds are comfy and the pool area is well protected from the wind. If your looking for an amazing home 2 blocks from the emerald waters this should be top on your list. I will be back to this gem soon

We loved staying at Rita's rental house. Everything is so clean and beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and pool and a quick walk to the beach. We've been many places and this rates at the top. You won't be disappointed.

Perfect vacation    May 11, 2019

review star

From the very beginning Rita was so helpful especially since it was our very first time visiting Destin! The house and ground were immaculate ! We immediately felt right at home and enjoyed ourselves so much we did not want to leave! The house is designed very nicely for privacy and the common areas were nice and open! The pool area is nice and private and super clean! The walk to the beach only took about 5 minutes and it also was stunning! We can’t wait to go back! It literally was a perfect vacation!!!!

Amazing home!    May 04, 2019

Rita was wonderful to rent from for my vacation. The home was beautiful! The home is kept maintained well. Very clean when we arrived. The pool was clean. Backyard was well maintained. We had our dog Tessa with us and the community is VERY dog friendly! Neighbors was wonderful. Overall we had an amazing time in Destin with the home in a great location to the Beach and all the activities. I would 100% rent from Rita again and recommend to others. *photo was taken on the beach close to the home.

Looking forward to coming back!    Mar 30, 2019

We booked our vacation with Rita for early Spring and couldn't have been happier! We brought our dog, Lafitte, which made our trip even more like a true family vacation. Rita gave us the name of the local equipment rental place that will rent and deliver practically anything needed: beach chairs, bicycles, golf carts, etc. If I had to put a finger on one thing I liked the best, it would be being able to spend time at the beach during the day and having a private home to return to at the end of the day and cook for ourselves, either by the pool or in the kitchen. Looking forward to next year!

Great Thanksgiving in Destin    Nov 22, 2018

review star

My family and I have talked about going to Destin for Thanksgiving, but have hesitated not knowing what to expect weather-wise, but after speaking with Rita, we decided to book and we are so glad we did! The weather was just right for shorts and long sleeve T-shirts and the Gulf is still warm enough for us adults to jump in with the kids! The house is in a great location, convenient to the beach as well as the outlet mall for Black Friday. I would recommend this property and we will definitely be back! Thank you Rita

Great Girls Vacation    Aug 04, 2018

review star

My girlfriends and I booked a week this past summer and plan to do so again next summer! I had intended to write a review, but after returning home and getting back into the "routine", it slipped my mind until we all got together and began talking about another girls trip to Destin. The house and amenities, ( internet, TV, washer/dryer, pool, etc) made our time there so much more enjoyable and home-like, except home doesn't have a white, sandy beach a short walk away! The house accommodated all 5 of us comfortably and the covered front porch is perfect for sipping coffee or another beverage in the evening! The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking on those nights when we wanted to stay in and relax by the pool which is very private and quiet, but just a block or so away from the main road in Destin. Looking forward to our next trip. Thanks Rita!

I was very lucky that I stumbled upon this beauty on The Emerald coast website. We had never been to Destin before as we just moved to Alabama last year and were kind of lost about where to go to the beach. I immediately called the owner to inquire about her property and she was awesome and very helpful! We just spent a week there a few weeks ago and the house was absolutely lovely. The property was a short walk to the beach and a lot of other things too! And the pool was delightful after a long day at the beach! I would highly recommend this property!! Thanks again Rita!!

THE BEST VACATION    Jan 14, 2017

review star

I was so fortunate to find this tucked away gem right in the middle of Crystal Beach. I can not recall ever having such a relaxing vacation in Destin. We were located in a very private and beautifully decorated cottage and the owner was deightful and helpful in every way possible and more. Just a stone's throw from the beach, THE COMMONS, Camille's and all that the area has to offer, not to mention the beautiful and heated private pool. I can not recommend this property highly enough. Thanks for everything we will definitely be back.

Christmas in Crystal Beach    Dec 24, 2016

review star

My family and in-laws stayed here over the Christmas holiday. This home is so comfortable and convenient to everything that Crystal Beach in Destin has to offer. Rita gave us the number of a place that would deliver all beach supplies as well as bicycles and goilf carts, very reasonable and convenient. We dined at Camilles and the Inn at Crystal Beach which is all within walking distance of the home. The beach and beach access is a short walk away. The private heated pool was amazing at the end of a long and busy day. I can not recommend this property heartily enough.

Wonderful Vacation    Nov 19, 2016

I had the pleasure of staying in this absolutely wonderful and relaxing property over Thanksgiving. I found it to be everything I thought it would be and MORE. The owner was very friendly and very informative and very easy to work with. The home is a very short walk to the beach access and is in the middle of everything great that Destin has to offer, yet very private. The swimming pool was heated and so relaxing after a day shopping or at the beach. I can not say enough nice things about this rental. I will definitely be back.

Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this warm and cozy beach cottage. The location is wonderful, right in the middle of Crystal Beach but also a very private oasis, close to restaurants, shopping, and the beautiful beach. The house is more than adequately stocked, and the private swimming pool with fountain is absolutely wonderful. The owner is very friendly, easy to work with and available. Thank you so much for a beautiful and relaxing stay. We would definitely recommend this property for your next beach vacation.
