Why Fawn Cougot chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Having the most beautiful beaches in the United States along with easy access for visitors made it an easy decision to buy vacation rental property in Destin. This is a family oriented vacation spot and once you arrive, you instantly are uplifted by the beauty of everything. The options of things to do is endless. There are boat rentals, parasailing, world class golf coarses, Big Kahuna Water Park, fine dining, excellent shopping, tennis, and most of all beautiful beaches.

What makes this house unique

Cool Breeze Cottage is a 5 minute walk to the beach and just down the road from most everything you will do.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a really great time here in Destin, Fl. The kids loved the pool and the little frogs. The golf cart was awesome. We drove to Dairy Queen a few times. We want to bring Whataburger back to Indiana with us.

We rode the zipline at Harbor Walk. The folks at Extreme H2O led us on a fantastic dolphin tour with jests. We also had fun squirting other parasailing boats while we were out with Just Chute Me. Those guys are fun.

Fun family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

While staying at the "Cool Breeze Cottage" my family of 8 that stayed were very comfortable and had plenty of room. My parents enjoyed the cottage house and had plenty room for peace and quiet away from the 4 teenage girls that were in the main house with us. Overall we had a great visit. Thank you Fawn for being a great property manager and for being so nice.

Gave us a bad review, very unfair!

  • 2 of 5

I wouldn't stay here again, the guest house needs work. The sink in the bathroom is very loose. Spiders everywhere. I never said a word but now I guess I should have said something. Just dealt with it. She was constantly popping in unannounced which we found very annoying. You had our number and could've at least called. I've never had an owner that was that intrusive. We had a service dog which some of us didn't know was coming. You can't charge for that and I don't think she liked that fact. Evidently she thinks you should keep the place spotless at all times.

The property was very nice, clean, and well maintained. Close to the beach and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

The Cool Breeze cottage was perfect for our family of 10. The grandparents stayed in the guest house out back and the remaining of us were in the main house. Fawn was very attentive and helpful. She stopped by to check the pool on a regular basis (usually before any us were up) and when the previous renters told her the dryer was slow to dry she sent a maintenance person over to clean the vent right away. She also suggested a great photographer who did an awesome job with our family beach pictures! Destin is a beautiful place with so much to do! I highly recommend Camilles (about 2 blocks) especially if you like pins coladas! Baytowne Wharf was fun for all ages and the Seaquest firework cruise (behind AJs) was a blast! If we have a large group again I would definitely stay at the cool breeze on a future trip!

Great, cozy stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time during our week stay at Fawn's property! We were actually planning our wedding so our week was pretty busy. The quiet and relaxing porches were the perfect ending to our busy days. We also enjoyed many times sitting out by the pool soaking up the sun! On our last night, a transformer blew due to a thunderstorm and we lost power. Fawn must have had a sixth sense, because she texted me right afterwards and brought over a tub of candles for us. While the power did come back on very quickly, we enjoyed listening to the thunderstorm. Just a relaxing last night to our week. She was absolutely wonderful! We would definitely stay at Fawn's properties again!

I am so very pleased with Cool Breeze vacation home. My family and I arrived the first of December and stayed thru the new year. The home is very accommodating with 4 comfortable rooms, 3 bathrooms and a fully equipped 1 bedroom q bathroom guest house. Just a golf cart (which is included!!!) ride away from the beautiful emerald waters and sugar white sands. The home is also in a prime location. The Destin Commons is 0.5 miles away. I would absolutely recommend this home to EVERYONE!

Cool breeze

  • 5 of 5

The house and pool house worked out perfectly for our large blended family. My husband and I took the pool house and let the kids take the house. I would definitely recommend the golf cart as it makes trips to the beach and shops on the strip so easy. The pool was awesome and we created many memories for years to come. Fawn was awesome to work with and gave us great advice.
