About The Owner

We have owned Cottage 21 since 2001. Our residence is in far west St Louis county so we are only able to visit two or three times a year. We offer our unit for rent which allows us to constantly upgrade the cottage. I always receive positive comments from our guests upon their return home after a vacation at our cottage. We have many guests returning year after year and they consider cottage 21 their second home.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We vacationed at Mainsail for many years and decided that the three bedrooms was perfect for our large family and would fit the needs of larger families or two families sharing the cottage. Our daughter recently purchased a condo also at Mainsail which allows us to have a family reunion every Spring with room for our family of 13, utilizing both units ....

What makes this cottage unique

This is a spacious and updated cottage that is close to the beautiful Destin beaches. You are close to the beach but without the noise associated with high rise condos. Plus you do not have to navigate the elevator or stairs when bringing groceries to the cottage.

It is perfect for Mom and Dad, children and the grandparents.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are home and had a great time. Cottage was a great size for us and worked out well. Decor is beachy and cute I loved sitting out on the porch chairs

condo complex was great and so close to stores and a fish market. Pool was great for the kids and we loved how family-like it was . We may may be renting from you

next Spring break.

The weather was perfect.

Christmas getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We brought our children and grandchildren here for the new year. Had a great time. Sleeps 7 comfortably. There is a hide a bed for two more. The weather turned cold so we were only able to be at the beach for one day. Short walk to the beach. We would come again.

Cute, comfortable, clean, and the owner was very informative and nice.

  • 4 of 5

It was our first family vacation. It was just right. They had the second floor to themselves and we had the master for us downstairs. The only kind of disappointment was needing to walk to the beach. We are used to being right on the beach. Having said that it was very close and very nice. We would recommend this property.

Love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second year in a row to rent this cottage. It is so well maintained, you can tell the owners take great pride in keeping it updated. It was very clean and comfortable, very updated with nice granite in the kitchen, hardwood floors throughout, and just a very welcoming and home-like feel. It is just about a 2 minute walk to the beach, no roads to cross. And the pool for the cottages is almost right outside your back door. The property of Mainsail is lovely and very well kept, and in a very quiet and convenient location, close to great restaurants and outlet mall. The owner is very responsive to any questions. I would highly recommend this lovely cottage.

This was my second year going to Destin and staying in the cottage. The cottage was very nice and roomy. The cottage and area is very clean and beautiful. I was able to have a memorable vacation with my son and grandbabies. The cottage is close to 2 pools and the ocean. I couldn't have asked for anything more accomodating and relaxing. I am planning on going back next year.

Our friends have spent several spring break vacations in the Destin area. We decided to join them this year. They recommended VRBO rentals. This wonderful home was such a perfect spot for our family. The owner is kind and friendly. The location is perfect for a family with children. The facilities are beautiful. The beach is WONDERFUL! We could walk to the grocery store and the outlet mall. I can not say enough about the location and the home. It is a gated community so the added privacy was very nice. We miss it already! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful Cottage for a family or couples vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Destin!! It's close to everything. The cottage is wonderful and updated with everything you need. There is so much space that you do not feel like you are on top of everyone. Our 4 kids loved it! The beds are all very comfortable, as is the whole cottage! It's close to both pools and an easy walk to the beach. Just sitting outside the cottage in the sun was so relaxing, we didn't want to leave. We will be back here for sure! 5 plus, plus stars!
