RELAXING!

  • 4 of 5
Our family very much enjoyed staying in this rental over the past week. It is located within a 2 minute walk to the beach and about a 10 second walk to the pool - ideal! Our young children loved the location (beach/pool) and we loved the quick/easy access to the grocery store, Outlet mall, etc... The home is well maintained and quite a bit larger than we had expected based on the photos. It was very comfortable for us and our dog, too! Kathy was great to ensure we arrived and got home safely. The house is well equipped for cooking with both the kitchen tools and the outside grill. The neighborhood is very cute and we met several families. Our only disappointment of the week was when our one child's shoes were stolen at the walkway where we left them by the beach (happened to multiple people that day and I heard it happened to some families the prior year) - my advice would be to keep your shoes with you when heading onto the beach.

THE BEST VACATION LOCATIONT!!

  • 5 of 5
This fabulous home and the location exceeded our expectations. We have been coming to Destin with our family, kids and dog, for 4 years now. The proximity to the beach was so convenient ( just a 1 minute walk down the neighborhood path ) The house was across the street from the private neighborhood pool, which was very convenient for all of us. We spent half the day at pool then went to the beach for an amazing sunset. The location is great, we walked to the grocery store, which had a yogurt store next to it, the kids loved that! The Outlet stores were just across the street from there. (I forgot my tennis shoes.) The inside of the house was laid out perfectly and very clean. I enjoyed the large kitchen, which had enough room for the dog to lay on the floor while I cooked and I didn't even step on him, like I do at home. (thanks for being pet friendly) The kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans, and utensils I needed. The last condo we stayed in didn't even have a wine key! The kids enjoyed the big living room space, with a large flat screen TV, so they could jump around and play their video games. All the bedrooms had TVs and a DVD players, which was great, so my husband and I could watch a movie in peace! (We couldn't even hear the kids jumping around downstairs) The laundry room was a bonus. I know it's silly, but the master bathroom had his and her sinks, and a king size bed. (Very important for us) The master balcony was a nice added spot. I enjoyed my evening glass of wine there. The kids had their own bedrooms and bathroom, very nice for us all. All and all this spacious house is the way to go, we always would rent condos, and I always felt like with the kids and dog, there was never enough room. We loved how quiet and quaint the neighborhood was too. Made us really feel at home! We have already told our friends about the house, they booked for a week in June. And we are already planning Spring Break 2015 to be here again. I feel this house is a hidden gem, Best House and Best Location in Destin. (Oh I forgot to mention the nightlife) 5 minutes from putt-putt and race carts. 5 minutes from movie theater. Go feed the alligators at Fudpuckers, 5 minutes to great restaurants of the Baytowne. Our night out without the kids, we went to the Cuvée Wine Bistro, great food and wine!! Thanks for making this our Best Vacation Experience in Destin! See you next year!

PATTY

  • 4 of 5
So close to EXCELLENT! The property was beautiful & well-maintained..., beach access great..., loved the close proximity to the nice pool. Would love to see a designated can for recycling. Also, possibly mention the closet where the broom & beach toys are kept in your instructions (found that the last morning when searching for a broom). We did leave coffee filters there. The coffee maker must have been on it's last leg because it worked the first 2 mornings & gave up the ghost on the third morning.
Being able to walk to Starbucks was a treat. We enjoyed Pompano Joe's Restaurant.
Can't find whatever verification link in the email that the site is talking about???
There was one dose of laundry soap laying on the washer. We brought our own beach towels, but would have actually ran the house load of towels if there would have been another dose of detergent. Enough with the insignificant details. The stay was beautiful!! Thank you Kathy for your hospitality!
We would definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

GREAT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunseeker Cottage. It is really close to the beach and you can access the beach without crossing any public roads. A real advantage with small children. The house is nice and the neighborhood is quiet. We will come back.

BEACH GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for a family Beach Getaway. The cottage is a 2 minute walk to the beach and across the street from the pool. The house was as described in the listing, well clean and maintained when we arrived. The rental agreement arrangements we simple and seamless.
