About Patrick McCaghren

I live in Birmingham, AL and this is my personal vacation home. I've owned it for many years (thus my low VRBO listing number) and keep it very updated. Very private yet right in the heart of Destin (see map). Drive right up to the front door and unload your car (no elevators to deal with). Short 200 yard walk to the beach. 70+ positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Patrick!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with my family and I. It was perfect! We had no troubles with it at all. It was everything you said it was and more! I loved that the beach was just a short walk across the parking and the condo was located in the middle of all the attractions and shopping. We had an amazing time in Destin and hope to visit there again in the future. I would most definitely consider staying at your condo again! Thank you again for everything!

Our stay was perfect and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the rental in Destin at the beginning of the 2017 summer. The place was even more spacious than we could see online. The location was easy to access the beach and the Destin life and attractions. The cleaning service is top notch. It was very clean and kitchen was well stocked. The decor was beachy and inviting. It offered great tv/wifi/etc but we stayed on the beach from sun up to sun down. The key pad was great and kept us from passing around a key to run home for snacks or sun breaks. This place was delightful and well priced. We will definitely make this a yearly trip.

Perfect place to call home while you are in Destin :-)

  • 5 of 5

The condo was the perfect size for my family and it had everything we needed for our week stay. We enjoyed walking through the condos over to the lake and to the beach.

I would highly recommend staying here. :-)

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been any better! The location was close to everything. The walk to the beach took 3 minutes tops. The private beach was perfect and absolutely breath taking. The unit was cozy and felt like home! The owner was very responsive to all email communications and very willing to work with our needs. I would be happy to come back and stay year after year!

Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Patrick was a very responsive and kind host. His town-home is in a perfect location and very nice. We traveled as a family of 3 couples (plus an infant) for 4th of July. Everyone was very comfortable in the rooms and there was plenty of space for us to gather and spend time together in the common rooms downstairs. We were very pleasantly surprised by how well stocked the kitchen was. We brought tons of food to cook and never once had an issue finding a pot/pan/casserole dish, etc that we needed. The charcoal grill on the back porch was a fantastic touch and allowed us to grill out for the 4th of July. Fireworks were done on the beach right by the town-home so we could either walk down to the beach or watch them easily from our front porch. The beach is a very easy walk through the complex and the pool is as well. We had a fantastic trip and part of that was due to how nice and comfortable our accommodations were! We would definitely book with Patrick again and highly recommend his town-home to anyone looking in Destin!
