Mainsail Resort House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 20

“Kate’s Porch” is a 7BR/6.5BA, 5000 sq foot Gulf front gem in Destin. The private home is tucked just off Highway 98, with shopping, fine and casual dining, and golfing options all in close vicinity. The property’s warm color pallet, wood floors, comfortable furnishings, elegant amenities, and eclectic artwork set it apart from neighboring homes. With private beach access, three Master Suites, a private in-ground pool, and plenty of private outdoor space, “Kate’s Porch” makes for a magnificent waterfront property.

The first floor of the property plays host to the living room, two suites, the bunk room, a ½ bath, and the laundry room. The living room is top-of-the-line with a leather sectional, a large flat screen TV, a BluRay player, a wet bar with a mini fridge, and bar seating for four. The Gulf is in plain view from the lavish living room. The first floor King Suite is complete with a flat screen TV, private balcony access, and a full private bath with a walk-in shower. The Queen Suite maximizes sleeping space by having two Queen beds which sleep four. The Queen Suite shares a full bathroom with the bunk room. This shared bath has dual sinks and a jeted tub/shower combo. The bunk room contains four twin beds and a flat screen TV. Also located on the first floor is a ½ bath and a laundry room with LG appliances. The first floor also provides access to the private in-ground pool area and the private beach access.

Guests are greeted to the second floor by an open kitchen, the formal dining area, and additional entertainment space. The gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, all stainless steel appliances, and a Viking range. The formal dining area offers seating for 12 at a rustic, stained wood table, with additional seating for four available on bar stools. The additional entertainment space offers a large Samsung flat screen TV, a BluRay player, and seating for five. Spectacular Gulf views can be taken in from the entire open living area. An additional balcony with seating for four lies just off the dining area. The first of the two Masters located on the second floor is furnished with a King bed, a Sharp flat screen TV, and a BluRay player. The Master Bath has a large rain head shower, a separate jeted tub, and a private water closet. The second Master Suite on the second floor also houses a king bed. The suite is complete with a walk-in closet, a flat screen TV, a BluRay player, and a master bath with dual sinks, a private water closet, and a rain head shower. A shared ½ bath rounds out the second floor space.

The entire third floor is dedicated to a third Master Suite, complete with a King bed, a large wall-mounted flat screen TV, a seating area, a private balcony, Gulf views, a walk-in closet, and a private full bathroom.

“Kate’s Porch” is tucked away just off the beaten path, between Highway 98 and the Gulf of Mexico. This warm, calming private home invites guests to take in the famous Destin views, while offering plenty of space for socialization, relaxation, and recreation.

AMAZING stay at Kate's Porch

AMAZING stay at Kate's Porch
  • 5 of 5
I normally do not write reviews, but in this case I have to! First of all, Kate's Porch is absolutely beautiful in every way. It's hard to know where to start! Let's start off with the view. You're only a few steps from the Gulf of Mexico and on one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my entire life. We didn't even feel like we had to leave the house. It was that amazing. The home is brand new and huge. It is tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings throughout. You will NOT regret booking this home. The location couldn't get any better. Close to shopping,restaurants and everything Destin has to offer. I also want to give a special thank you to Five Star Beach Properties. They were very professional and helpful during the booking process all the way through check out. I had a lot of questions, they always responded quickly and took care of everything for us. There are many rentals to choose from in this area for sure. If you're torn on which home to book, Kate's Porch is the one! We will be back for sure. Thank you again for sharing this beautiful home with us. What a treat.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
The stay at Kate's porch was the best we have ever had. The photos were as promised and the house was absolutely fantastic. We never felt crowded and really didn't do all of the spaces in the house justice. To step right out onto the beach was fabulous and the ability to go back and forth from the beach to the pool was a wonderful perk. Kitchen was the right size for our family (16 adults and 2 children) and it had all of the amenities we needed.

Potential cons: No brooms for quick clean up, no elevator (didn't realize kitchen was two floors up for the elderly parents), only access to bottom floor was from outside.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
Kate's Porch was everything you think it will be from the pictures. Right on the most beautiful beach, many rooms that open wide to hear the surf and feel the breeze. Comfortable beds. Great gathering areas. We had an amazing week. I will list the negatives (there is always something) although some are not in anyones control. The biggest was the road was flooded leading to the property. I was not so deep that we could not pass and it was drained by mid week. Access to check in after hours was awkward and garage access is not well designed. On check out day the cleaning group was rude when the came and had not been informed that we were approved to stay until noon. I would recommend this house to large groups that want to be on the beach.
