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. 60+positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

Five acre fresh water lake on property stocked with bass and brim (catch and release fishing).

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!



Sincerely,

Keri

Great townhouse and a great value

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this townhouse for our kids spring break. Clean, nice and affordable. Pictures are accurate. Plenty of room. Nice pool area and a very short walk to the beach. Had some storms during our stay and took advantage of the puzzles, cards and games. Very quiet and family oriented but close to everything. Great trip and would definitely stay here again.
