About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Rose Cottage... A unique, cozy, three bedroom, two and a half bath home located one block from the beach on a street that has direct gulf access (no streets to cross) and walking distance to Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Actually, the location is perfect; right across the street is Skipper’s which features the best steamed shrimp and locally caught fresh fish & his wife's homemade key lime pie. A block away are tons of restaurants, and a new ice cream parlor. One of the biggest benefits is the brand new gourmet Winn Dixie about a 1/4 mile away... On the beach, you can experience Parasailing, rent a catamaran or just do nothing… Then, for evening entertainment, you are only one mile from Sandestin and The Village of Baytowne Wharf which comes alive with family activities and nightlife. The Events Plaza features live music and a series of events, concerts and entertainment year around as well as many nightclubs. The area also includes many fabulous indoor and open air restaurants. Please read my guests comments. Thx.

About Patricia Striegel

My background is Industrial Design and Marketing, and I love designing and installing all the woodworking myself. All the trim, moldings, etc. in my home was installed by me... I also designed the pergola and helped a carpenter construct it. My other love is gardening... and this is evident by my yard and my home's name 'The Rose Cottage'...

Patricia Striegel purchased this house in 2001

Why Patricia Striegel chose Miramar Beach

I built my home in 2001 and have loved sharing it with family, friends and guests... I take great pride in the furnishing and actually did all the detailed trim carpentry. Love the location as it is not as conjested as Destin and is close to Sandestin amenities...

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of my home is the privacy of my back yard. It features beautiful flowers and tall palm trees. The pergola provides shade and a perfect place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner...

Guestbook comments from the owner


Last fall I switched my Miramar Beach home from a managed property to VRBO. I have enjoyed talking to my renters and value the relationships that have been established vs. not knowing my renters.

To view comments from guests who have stayed at my lake home in Northern Michigan, please go to the vrbo website for Michigan and log in 84644 or simply click on View All Properties and go to guest book.

This shows the care and detail that I put into making my guests stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Wonderful vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time renting this home! It is furnished very nicely and the kitchen has EVERYTHING you could image needing. How many rentals have nice china and REAL wine glasses? The location was so convenient! When they said it was close to the beach they weren't kidding. My kids lived on the beach and with a family of five people, not everyone wanted to come and go at the same time. Because the house was so close and the area very safe, we felt comfortable letting our kids walk back and forth from the house to the beach.

Additionally, less than a 1/2 block in the other direction was the grocery store (Winn Dixie) and TCBY and Dollar General. So walking to the store and not having to drive was a plus. Shopping and restaurants were in abundance.

Finally, this property was located near SanDestin and the area tended to be more upscale and less congested than properties closed inside of Destin. The home is managed by the personal owner and you can tell the difference from other properties that are managed corporately. Dealing with the owner was comforting.

We've already told our friends about this home and how key it was to making our vacation enjoyable. We had zero complaints.....except for having to leave and come home!

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

The Rose Cottage looks exactly like the pictures. It was very clean. The beds were all very comfortable. The kitchen is beautiful and had everything we could have needed. It is the best location to the beach and shopping. My family is looking forward to making an annual trip to the Rose Cottage.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row that we have stayed at Rose Cottage. Everything was great both years. It is just a short walk to the beach and very conveniently located to shopping, grocery and drug stores, and restaurants.

We visited TCBY almost every night! The house was very clean and beautifully furnished and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to everyone!

First time to Destin area. A great, and very memorable family vacation. Kids of all ages

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin area. We chose Miramar based on some family staying in the area in the past. Quieter, definitely not near as crowded. Everything is very close to you, but yet if you want to enjoy some of the water sports, parasailing, boating, all are a short drive away at the harbor docks area. Pat's home is extremely well kept and has all of the amenities you could want or need. I was very choosy on where we decided to stay. I wanted something close to the beach (literally it's 3 minute walk away up the semi-private street without crossing any streets. That was also a requirement my wife and I had. So the kids can walk to and from safely and without hassle. The grill was in excellent shape and basically brand new if not new. House was very clean, and I mean detailed clean. Not just a quick touch up and ready for the next family/group. This is the kind of home where (and you should regardless) treat it like your own. The cozy feel and the overall comfortable setting and vibe is , this is my home away from home treat it as such. It felt very well cared for and showed. In fact the day we arrived (we were a bit early) we met Mike who takes care of the property while the owner is away (Pat). Talk about manicured landscape. That to me was a very nice touch and all the more better to enjoy the patio and just the home itself. Not the kind of home you let tiny kids run crazy in. It's not that type of property. But if you are looking for a very relaxing, cozy and all the nice amenities you could want, for adults, younger kids, or older teens this is it. Brand new appliances, a HUGE laundry room so you have plenty of room to clean clothes once you get the sand off using the fresh water shower head outside which is fantastic! A very comfortable and relaxing master bed room with a surprisingly elegant master bath which was just remodeled completely. Beds are comfortable and feel very updated. We slept great each night because it was so comfortable there. We will most definitely be returning to this house. I did my homework and it is very hard to decide on a home, but this one I kept coming back to for a reason. once we were there, it was obvious why. The 'gut feeling' I had, was correct. Give it a try!

Also, we rented a golf cart which was a blast. Patricia (Pat) can refer you to the place we used. They did great/professional and easy. You can use it to go up and down the beach front blvd. and pretty much anywhere that's 35 mph or under.

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
Ft Walton Beach, FL or Panama City Beach, FL
Car: recommended

The Rose Cottage is located in Miramar Beach which is about 5 miles east of Destin. Miramar Beach provides a quieter family oriented location while still being close to shopping, restaurants and other Florida activities. My home is perfect for kids as they do not have to cross the street while going to the beach. My home is on a dead end street that is only 200 yards to the beach walkway. I even have a red wagon for the little kids so you do not have to carry them. Across the street is the WinnDixie, Cash's Liquor store, Dollar General, Ice Cream and of course Skippers - the best fresh fish in Destin. Then across new 98, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall provides the shopper the best in retail establishments.
