About Patrick McCaghren

I live in Birmingham, AL and this is my personal vacation home. I've owned it for many years (thus my low VRBO listing number) and keep it very updated. Very private yet right in the heart of Destin (see map). Drive right up to the front door and unload your car (no elevators to deal with). Short 200 yard walk to the beach. 39 positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

What makes this townhome unique

Short walk to Beautiful white-sandy beach (200 yards).

Heart of Destin - convenient to new Harbor Walk restaurants, Wal-Mart, Target, WalGreens, Wynn-Dixie, Publix, Home Depot

Five acre fresh water lake on property stocked with bass and brim (catch and release fishing).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Patrick!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with my family and I. It was perfect! We had no troubles with it at all. It was everything you said it was and more! I loved that the beach was just a short walk across the parking and the condo was located in the middle of all the attractions and shopping. We had an amazing time in Destin and hope to visit there again in the future. I would most definitely consider staying at your condo again! Thank you again for everything!



Sincerely,

Keri

Condo was as pictured, extremely clean, comfortable and easy access to all the attractions. Loved the beach and pool, except for groceries had very little need to buy for stay. Only problem was where to eat each night.......so many good options! Would love to stay again sometime, highly recommend it. Others we met at complex was friendly and Patrick couldn't have given better directions and advice. Thanks Patrick, should be proud of your vacation home!

Perfect Get away

  • 5 of 5
Owner is extremely personable and detailed. He was extremely helpful with the booking process. All instructions were clear. Owner answered all question in a timely fashion. When we arrived the condo was perfect. Everything was clean, all appliances are new, towels are adequately stocked, mattresses are practically brand new. The location is perfect, we walked everywhere. The distance to the beach is extremely short from the condo's front door. The pool is amazing. Our family had an amazing time. Everything was beautiful. I would love to stay here again next year!!

Great Time in Destin

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in Destin the week of June 7th and the condo has easy access to the beach and to all the Destin activities. It is located in the heart of Destin and we really enjoyed our stay. The owner was easy to deal with and I had no problems.

Nice Condo, Nicer Owner

  • 5 of 5
I was overseas when I reserved this condo and couldn't use the owner's normal payment methods for deposits. He provided alternatives that worked for both of us.

After check in, the AC was not working right. With a phone call he had someone there within a half hour on a Saturday night. In another half hour the air was fixed.

We had 6 adults and a 2 year old and the condo was perfect. The kitchen has everything you will need.

It is a short walk to the beach, shopping, and dining. On holidays you can walk faster than drive.

We are looking forward to becoming repeat customers.

Destin first timer

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for four nights and the condo is exactly as shown on the site. It is in a great location with restaurants, grocery stores and all types of stores very close by. Patrick was great and answered all of my questions and quickly returned my deposit. It was nice having HD tv's in each room with cable. I will definetly look at renting here again on my next trip to Destin.

Only small issue was initially finding the place late at night when we first arrived. There is a second entrance to the condos that you must use. After looking again, it is mentioned in the driving from Birmingham to Destin, but coming from the west I did not initially look closely at those directions. This could easily be solved by taking a quick pic of the smaller Southbay entrance at the 950 block or so. No biggie.

Great beaches, Great place to stay, and a Great owner. Counting the days to my next stay.

Long Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 4 nights and it is exactly how it is pictured. This condo offered a short walk through the parking lot to the beach which made it nice when you are hauling beach "stuff". The condo was very clean and supplied with kitchen and plenty of bathroom towels. The mattresses on the beds seemed to be worn out, they were uncomfortable to sleep on. However this condo provided everything we needed for our stay in Destin and it was close to everything. Would consider going back if mattresses were changed.

Owner's Response: Hi Gina,
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your feedback. I just replaced both the queen-size mattress with new Serta extra firm mattresses. Hope you decide to stay with us again in the future! Patrick
