RUSTIC BEACH COTTAGE

Mainsail Resort Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This charming beach cottage is approximately one mile from the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and on a private road south of 98, so there is no highway or secondary road to cross for beach access.

Extremely clean and comfortable, this beach house has been in the 'Walker Family' for over 60 years. Undoubtedly, you can find more up-to-date accommodations elsewhere, but if you are looking for that beach cottage of yesteryear with the amenities of today, look no further.

We are delighted to share this home with you for that special vacation and hope you will start your memories here.

Experience the Destin of yesteryear. On a private road south of 98, this rustic cottage was built in the late 1940's, but has all of the amenities of today.

Yearly family vacation

We have been coming to this cottage for 3 years and we love it here (this includes 4 adults and 7 children). Over the years the owners have updated the furniture. It does have wear on it but, it was built in the 1940's. That is kind of what you expect. We like the fact that it is reasonable, the private beach(which is completely worth it), and the kids can play in the yard. Jim is very friendly and easy to work with.
Recommended for:  Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: It is always good to rent to nice people! We try and be as honest as we can with the age of the cottage and its rustic nature, but you can't find a cleaner home and a better location for the money.

We do try our best!

Not As Described

I debated writing a review on this property, and am writing this 4 months after our stay, since the owner(s)***agreed to a full refund minus a small fee for re-cleaning which was agreed on by both parties. We had a group of 5, male and female, all adults..We were in no way looking for a 5 star hotel, but upon arrival we knew immediately we would not be spending the night. "charming beach cottage...Extremely clean and comfortable" was inaccurate. The property owners are out of state and cannot monitor what goes on...this seems to be "the" problem. The place is not clean and is in disorder. walls have shifted leaving 3-4" gaps in floors, not just the hall mentioned on the other website, exposing inner cinder block and giving access to anything that wants to come inside, closets have gaps in walls/ceiling exposing access into the attic, the a/c in the "master BR" was leaking water into the room, the downstairs a/c is sealed/insulated with tape on the inside, all the beds had spiders, webs and egg sacs under the box springs, outlet in the living area behind couch was "loose" and needs attention(kept light going off or on depending how you turned plug) etc, etc....The fact that there are no reviews should have been indication enough. We ended up staying at a motel for the duration of our vacation trip which was a major inconvenience and additional cost due to the July 4th weekend...Pictures have been added to this review, hopefully they will be posted. The owner, again, did refund.....he also added the family has considered tearing down and rebuilding.
Owner's Response: Over the past 15 years, we have only rented to family and friends, and then we decided five years ago to try and rent to others using VRBO and other rental services. To date, this particular renter was the only one over these five years who was not completely pleased with the cleanliness of the cottage and we gladly refunded their money without question. It is rustic and does have settling issues (which we previously explained), but the cleaning service we use have had no other complaints from any of our guests, other than this post.

We encourage feedback, both bad and good, but if there is an issue, we will do whatever it takes within reason to insure your stay with us is pleasant with wonderful memories.
