About Fawn Cougot

I live in this beautiful city of Destin and absolutely love it.....I stay busy managing my properties so I can ensure that my visitors will have a great vacation experience. I am a lisenced Real Estate Agent and tennis fanatic. As a native Texan, I love that my friends and family have such a great place to come visit. Most important to you is that I take pride in my properties and have many repeat vacationers.

Fawn Cougot purchased this house in 2002

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our families third year at Fawndango's. We really love it!

This time we brought fishing poles and went surf-casting on the beach & also at Fort Walton Pier. So fun!!!!

Thank you so much for providing such an awesome place to make memories. It's more than we could've asked for and we feel very fortunate to have found it.

The Place of Our Dreams in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth year to stay in Fawndango's , we come back every winter season. It can't be beat. It's like staying in your own private compound with the privacy of the beautifully landscaped & fenced yard. The main house has everything you need for your stay, plus great colors & beachy look to top it off. Their is a guest house that is perfect for company or another couple/family. It's close in location makes it so you can "ditch" your car & walk to restuarants, shopping, even Best Buy! And if you feel like walking the beach, it's a block away! Finally, Fawn has become like family to us, she is not only just a "super nice" person but really does take care of your every need, quickly & efficiently. It's great renting directly from the "owner" who lives in Destin. Fawndango's is like staying in the place of our dreams, we hope to return for years to come.

Wonderful beach vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful choice for my family. Pros: Great for toddlers (high chair, pack-n-play, no stairs in main house, quiet bedrooms), Great for pets (fence, green space, nice sidewalks to take walks), All the conveniences of home (Wi-Fi, laundry, close to lots of grocery stores, cable TV, etc), Tons of beach gear, Amazing golf cart, Perfectly sized pool, Great beach access (Just a block or two away). The owner, Fawn, was very easy to communicate with and very helpful. We hope to return sometime!

I loved staying at the Fawndango compound property. Both houses were perfect for our needs. They were nice, clean and very well tended. The location was AWESOME. Short walk to the beach and a short walk to both shopping and restaurants if you didn't want to get out into traffic. I loved the wrap around porch and having the whole compound fenced in. If I had any suggestions it would be to have better air conditioning in the loft. It took 24 hrs for that area to cool enough to be really comfortable. I would highly recommend this property and I would rent again in the future. The owner was very nice and seemed to care about us having a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you loved the place and that you would recommend it to others. I just purchased a new A/C unit for the loft and it is scheduled to be put in next week. Thanks for the input.

Perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Fawndango was the perfect rental for our family! It was so clean and felt like home. The kids loved the pool. It is only a couple blocks from the beach. The golf cart made trips to the beach an absolute breeze! This home is close to anything you would want to do (restaurants, bowling alley, arcade, water park). Perfect location!!!! I would definitely recommend staying at Fawndangos!! You will not be disappointed!

Great experience

  • 4 of 5

Great location...access to beach, stores, fun! Spent a week here with my family and we all had a great time. Lots of room to spread out and everything we needed was there. Needs a little updating, but was a good experience.

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

We had our second Multi-Family vacation at one of Fawn's properties and loved it. Fawn is very attentive and accommodating without being intrusive. The property was perfect for all of us and very close to the beach. All of us had a great time and will be in touch with Fawn for our next vacation.

Crystal Beach is located on the east side of Destin just south of the Mid Bay Bridge. We are 6 mies west of Sandestin. Just south of the Destin Commons Mall and various stores makes it a great place to stay not having to drive any distance. Everything you need is 'just around the corner'.
