Description

SOLMATE *NEW REMODEL in 2020* Heated Pool & Golf Cart Deals!

***We REQUIRE a 7 day minimum during any Holiday, as well as Spring & Summer months. We are flexible on the check-in/check-out day of the week (Saturday not required) but it MUST be a 7 day minimum. Please do not inquire for a shorter stay during these times, as pricing is not provided for less than 7 days.***

SolMate is the perfect location that's close to beaches (about a 2 block walk), shopping, restaurants, & nightlife. You'll love our place because of the neighborhood, the coziness, and the fact that you are central to any and everything "Destin." SolMate is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families with kids, big groups, and furry friends (pets)--really anyone with a dream to spend time in the most beautiful place in the Emerald Coast.

We've just remodeled our vacation destination in late 2020 to bring a fresh coastal look to our already beautiful location! Our remodel has added all new furnishings, an outdoor kitchen space, built-in sand box for kids, and new finishes throughout both homes! We pride ourselves in consistently improving our home, based on guest feedback & how we would want a space to feel while traveling!

The home is a split-layout including a three bedroom main home and a 2 bedroom carriage home, with a big optionally heated pool & patio joining the two spaces together. It's perfect for your family vacations, or just getaways with friends. You have ample parking right outside your door and there's plenty of space for everyone to comfortably enjoy their stay.

Our front main home has a quaint front porch for those that want to enjoy the salty air relaxing at the end of a long beach day. We provide a keyless entry code for guests, so no need to fumble with keys at any time during your trip. Upon entering, you walk directly into our open concept living area with ample seating on our commercial grade queen sleeper sofas & accent chairs. We have a Roku enabled TV in each room with HuluLive provided for our guests, and the ability to login to your own media if desired!  Directly off the living room is the master bedroom with a King bed, walk in closet, window seating, and en-suite bathroom that has a spacious granite countertop, vessel sink, and shower/tub combo.

Our dining area allows for everyone to gather around the table & breakfast bar together, with open air to the living room as well. Our kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, cooking utensils, silverware, pots & pans, baking dishes, small appliances (blender, crockpot, griddle), standard coffee pot, Keurig, spice rack, and a pantry to keep your groceries for your stay! Our area offers Instacart & Shipt (grocery delivery) and Beach Liquors (beer/wine/spirits delivery) for those that prefer to take one less stress away! 
Our laundry room is located conveniently right by the kitchen, with a full sized washer and dryer for guest use.

Down the hall, on the left is the second bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds as well as a Roku enabled Tv. The third bedroom down this same hallway has a king sized bed & Roku enabled tv as well. At the end of the hall is a full bathroom with a granite countertop, vessel sink, and a shower/tub combo.

Out the back door, you'll enjoy our paver patio around the pool with tables, chairs, and pool lounge chairs. We've recently added a covered outdoor kitchen with beautiful granite counters & a Weber natural gas grill. Kids can enjoy the sandpit in the back right corner of the patio as well, complete with sand toys galore! An outdoor shower is located in the driveway to rinse off the sand after the beach & to help keep the pool clear before entering.

The 2 bedroom carriage home can be accessed right from the patio, and the first door enters right into the bunk room with two sets of twin bunks. There is a Roku enabled TV & a standalone PTAC heating/cooling unit right in the bedroom. Walking further through the carriage home, you'll find the kitchenette in the middle area. To the right is a breakfast bar with seating and to the left is a well stocked kitchenette with a microwave, sink, toaster oven, standard coffee pot, keurig, plug in cooktop, dishes, pots & pans, kids dinnerware, and a mini fridge. The spacious bathroom is directly off the kitchenette area, with a shower/tub combo. The last bedroom through the kitchenette area has a King size bed, small seating area, and a Roku enabled Tv. Each bedroom & the bathroom all have exterior access doors, so it can easily be used as the "pool bathroom" to avoid wet footprints throughout the main home!

A few important things to note:
-Golf Cart rental is not included in your stay. We're happy to offer our guests golf cart rentals at a deeply discounted rate from a local, reputable company--you won't find this deal anywhere else! Please let us know upon booking if you'd like us to reserve it for you! Golf cart rentals are not permitted with student parties under 25 (insurance reasons) and unfortunately no exceptions can be made.
-We accept only full week booking during holidays, local events, and spring & summer months (Saturday to Saturday check-in and check-out.) Feel free to ask about any off season weeks or shorter off-season/available vacations!
-We are pet friendly for up to 2 dogs per booking, but we do charge a pet fee to be able to host others that may have allergies we have a deeper clean done, no exceptions. Only house trained pets are permitted, and if planned to leave unattended they must be crated to avoid damage. It is required to clean up after your pet, both inside and out, or additional fees will be assessed. ESA (Emotional Support Animals) are subject to the pet fee, as they do not fall under ADA compliant service animal requirements. It is a crime in our state to impersonate a service animal, so we appreciate your honesty in this matter.
-Pool heating is not included in your stay. Pricing does vary based on length of stay, so if your group wants to enjoy this amazing amenity just inquire when booking!
-Our cleaners supply a courtesy supply of toiletries for roughly the first day or so of your stay (toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, soap, laundry soap, dish detergent) but guests are responsible for any additional supplies needed.

We are always available for our guests anytime before and during your trip. It is highly encouraged to read our listing in detail for any questions about the space, location, and amenities. We ask, please, for NO text message communication as you will not receive a response. Our strong preference is communication directly through your booking platform so that we have all the details of your trip to make assisting you a breeze. If you're a first time traveler, please download the app of the platform you've booked your trip on for ease of access to your trip details & communication. For more immediate needs and emergencies please place a phone call to Matthew (and be sure to know the logistics of your trip such as the dates and location). We can be reached most times of the day, but ask for no late night contact-we will do our absolute best to take care of any needs and questions as soon as they arise!

You will be super close driving distance to anything you have planned or desire to do during your stay. We typically recommend taking an Uber as they are very popular in the area and always less expensive that a normal taxi. You can definitely take a short walk to the beach, and it is almost always easier than driving around looking for parking!

Please read our House Rules in detail before booking your trip, so you're aware of any important FAQ that we've addressed for our guests ahead of time.

My family and I loved the vacation we had in Destin. The home was perfectly located and the golf cart had us on the beach in minutes. We will definitely return.

Perfect for Large Family!    Nov 18, 2018

review star


The cottage out back is much larger than we expected. It was very comfortable for our oldest son and his family. The pool was very refreshing and the patio area was perfect for poolside lounging after a day at the beach. The main house had three bedrooms and two full baths. The split bedroom arrangement in the main house is perfect for privacy. The house was very comfortable and it was nice having a full size laundry room. We rented two smaller golf carts (Matt helped negotiate getting two when the larger golf cart was unavailable). The golf carts were perfect for the short trip to the beach. We have been to many different beaches but Crystal Beach in Destin is our favorite, by far!

My family and I had a great stay at Sol Mate this past October. We enjoyed the pool, the patio and the porches all through the day. We will definitely come back next year!

Awesome house for larger groups! Plenty of room inside and out and the pool is really nice! The location is in a great spot for beach access and local food and shopping!

Golf cart was a nice addition that we didn’t think we’d need, but ended up using quite a bit! Owners are really nice and always got back to me with any questions or concerns within minutes. Definiately recommond this house!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean and spacious, lots of room. We loved having the golf cart and the private pool. The cottage was well stocked with kitchen equipment, towels, and sheets. We also like that we could bring our dog. We will be back!

Great    Aug 26, 2018

We had an amazing time at Sol Mate! The property is very well maintained and the Owners were great at keeping in touch when we had any questions prior to check in as well as answering questions and giving suggestions once we were in Destin. Anything we couldn't find, they were just a text away ready to help or go pickup something we couldn't find in the house. Location is great and close to ANYTHING you should need. Golf cart was a huge plus! It was a great place to stay for our first family vacation and the perfect location to spend a week in Destin. We would recommend to everyone!!!
