Miramar Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Welcome to the Mermaid Cottage!

This wonderful 3 bedroom, 3 bath beach cottage is located in the beautiful Cottage Retreat Community of Destin Florida. We invite you and your family to stay in our wonderful cottage for a week in paradise! If you like sugar-white sand, emerald waters and swaying palms, you will love this community.

The cottages in Cottage Retreat are quaint reminders of days gone by with front porches, and bright decorative colors, with the entire community built on a cul-de-sac.

Our cottage comes equipped with all of the comforts of home and possibly a few more! This home has 3 bedrooms, beautifully furnished and all the comforts of home. This home features a wrap-around deck on the first floor, and the second floor has a balcony for enjoying fresh evening breezes. The beach walkover is a short 2 minute stroll to the sugar white sand and emerald waters of the Gulf. Our home is in a perfect location. You will want to return year after year!

What to do in Destin besides enjoy our beaches!: Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices. Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding. We are a short 2 mile drive to the Silver Sands mall to the West, or luxury shopping at Destin Commons to the East. Kenny D's, The Crab Trap, and Pompano Joe's are all within walking distance to Cayenne Cottage. We encourage you to leave menurs of your favorite restaurants when you come.

For evening entertainment, Destin is known for some wonderfully upscale eateries, as well as your regular fare. Friendly night life and nearby state of the art movie theater.

Do you like to shop?: The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a vacation in it’s own right for shoppers you will have access to over 100 stores, including, Polo Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Eddie Bauer, Liz Claiborne, Tommy Hilfiger, Lenox, Nike and Reebok - just to name a few. When you need to pause for nourishment choose from Panera Bread, Cheeseburger in Paradise or Carrabba's Italian Grill.

More great shopping can be found at the Destin Commons outdoor mall. Enjoy such great stores as Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic, Belk, Books-A-Million & Maui Nix Surf Shop to rattle off a few. Stop for a bite to eat at the Hard Rock Café, Panera Bread, Tony’s Ristorante or Sushi Siam. More than just shopping the Destin Commons Center Plaza offers a soft-play kids playground and a 49-head pop fountain. Community activities and entertainment are held through the year at Destin Commons . Rave Motion Pictures is also housed at Destin Commons to catch the latest releases.

Fun for all ages!: Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resorts offers wonderful dining and specialty stores as well as great festivals & events that are held at the Market Shops Green or the Center Plaza within the Village.

Grande Boulevard offers stores such as Billabong, Brooks Brothers Country Club, Coldwater Creek, J. Crew-at-the-beach, Sunglass Hut, & Tommy Bahama's Emporium as well as great dining at Tommy Bahama’s , Fleming’s, Cantina Laredo (If you dine here sit outside to enjoy the fountain!) & Mitchell’s Fish Market.

The Track Amusement Center in Destin, Florida offers mini golf, Water Bumper Boats, go-carts & for those not faint of heart, Bungee Jumping.

EXCELLENT VACATION COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay at the mermaid cottage. We loved having a 'home' for the week! Spacious, well laid out and cozy. My ONLY complaint during the stay was the home obviously didn't get deep cleaned very often... Our dog got under the master bed & wow, there was a plethora of trash under it.
Convient location, parking etc. loved private beach set up.

We loved our stay at The Mermaid Cottage! I've stayed at many homes over the past few years and this one was awesome! I loved that the AC unit was upstairs so it kept the house nice abd cool. It was clean and beautifully decorated! Well stocked with Tide for laundry and detergent for dishwasher. This was the first time staying at a house with a community pool and it was great. Nice and cool as opposed to very small bath water pools. Very nice vacation home!

WHAT A PERFECT PLACE TO SPEND A VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place to spend a vacation! It had
been a rough summer for us and this was the
getaway that we needed! The house made us feel
like we were truly at the beach! The washer and
dryer worked great, the beds were so comfortable,
and the whole house felt like home. We hope to
return soon! Kathy is amazing too!

THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PLACE YET TO DATE!

  • 5 of 5
we had a wonderful family vacation and this home was perfect for us. we will definitely return. we found that our favorite place to eat was at The Shed, service was awesome and so was the food. our least favorite was Pompano Joes, the food was ok and the service was terrible. i have to say this, and my husband agrees, the beds in this home were the most comfortable we have ever slept in, that is one of the most important things to us, especially after a long day of playing at the beach then shopping, we wished we would have checked to see what kind of mattress's these were. very short walk to the beach was nice and the pool was beautiful with all the lush foliage surrounding the pool.we have visited Destin many times and i must say this was my favorite place yet to date. we will return , for sure. thank you

LOVED THE MERMAID COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our trip to Destin
and loved our stay at the Mermaid
Cottage. The house has a very cozy,
relaxed vibe and is beautifully
decorated. I didn't feel like I was in a
rental at all. The house had all the
conveniences for an easy vacation: large
bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms, well
equipped kitchen, washer/dryer combo,
Wii for the kids (young and old) and
patio furniture to enjoy the gorgeous
Destin nights on the balcony. The house
was very clean and ready on time. The
welcoming basket was a nice touch and we
used the items during our stay. The
quiet gated community was a very short
walk from the private beach and pool
area. We were only a short ride away
from shopping (loved Destin Commons),
restaurants and tourist attractions.
Kathy was a pleasure to work with and
can’t wait to book my next vacation with
her. The only bad part about the
vacation was leaving Mermaid Cottage and
Destin. I will definitely tell my
friends and family about Mermaid Cottage
and beautiful Destin. Thanks again for
a wonderful place to stay and see you in
2013.
