Guestbook comments from the manager

This home was very clean, quiet, with comfy beds and great kitchen setup with everything we needed. The only problem we had was the downstairs sofa and chairs as we were there a whole month and it was uncomfortable to sit on. That would be something we would have to change for the next time. Enoyed our stay in the home versus a condo which we've rented before. This was very cozy.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This charming cottage exceeded our expectations! It was clean, tastefully decorated and perfect for two families. The gated community was quiet, the white sands beach was amazing (truly just a short walk), and the pool (practically in the back yard) was beautiful and warm. Kathy was so pleasant to speak to and very helpful. Check out Harborwalk for entertainment and family activities and the lovely people at Blue Crab Water Sports for Jetski rentals, etc.

Had a great stay...

  • 5 of 5
Having had a tough winter up north with over 90 inches of snow, the family and I really needed a break. Kenja Kottage was great. We were able to drive and get there easily. It was clean and really close to the pool and the workout facility (both are literally steps away) and we were a short walk from the beach. Bringing the dog was an extra bonus. We had a great family Spring Break. Highly recommend taking the kids to the Wednesday night concerts in the Park and the zip line in Destin as well. Simple, easy, affordable and clean. Thanks for the hospitality and the break. We really needed it.

EXCELLENT Property and Location

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week stay in Destin. This was the first time we rented a home and we could not be more pleased with this property. Kenja Kottage was in a great location and super close to the beach, of course we could have paid triple and been right on the beach, but this was the next best thing. It was super short 2 minute walk to the beach and the pool was directly behind the house. This home was ABOVE fully stocked and so so clean. There were plenty of towels, toilet paper, soap, etc. The home was spotless when we arrived and the AC was nice and cool. There were 9 of us, 4 adults and 5 kids and there was PLENTY of room. All the bedrooms are super spacious and the downstairs in the living room and kitchen there was plenty of room for all of us to sit around and visit. The home was also stocked with a beach umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards and floats. This was great. All of the kids made friends with the neighbors and had a blast at the pool. We would highly recommend this property and location and will return.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Kenja Kottage was perfect for our family vacation. The home was clean and tastefully decorated. It had everything we needed for our week stay. The kids loved playing with the boogie boards at the beach! The beach was a short 2 minute walk from the home. It is within walking distance to Pompanoe Joes and Captain Daves. Our only complaint is that the bed in the upstairs back bedroom was not very comfortable. Other than that, we loved Kenja Kottage and would love to stay here again if we return to Destin!!!

Kenja kottage

  • 4 of 5
Kenja kottage was a very nice house, we stayed 2 families of four and it was great. One family upstairs and one downstairs.
The house was big enough for all of us. ( we have 4 children between 8 months and 8 years)

The house was clean and it has washer and dryer inside.
It was close to the beach, just across the street. And close to silversands outlet too.

The house was next to the poolarea and it was a little bit anoying because it was springbreak and some teenagers had poolparties every night until midnight. So we did have a hard time getting the kids to bed.

We went to the great maze in Panama city beach, that was very fun. Both for the kids and the adults.

But overall we had a great time and I would recommend Kenja Kottage to my friends.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely vacation home! There were 8 of us (6 adults and 2 toddlers), and we had plenty of room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, so everyone had plenty of privacy. The kitchen is well appointed--plenty of cookware and dinnerware. Very clean, and just across the street from the gulf. The weather was gorgeous. We enjoyed the Gulfarium in nearby Ft Walton and the outlet mall in Destin. We would love to come back!
