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). Just as quiet and peaceful as the day I bought it! Drive right up to the front door and unload your car (no elevators to deal with). Short 200 yard walk to the beach. 85+ positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

Heart of Destin - convenient to new Harbor Walk restaurants, Wal-Mart, Target, WalGreens, Wynn-Dixie, Publix, Home Depot

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

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.

Great Value

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Patrick's place. He provided very complete information about check-in, the condo's amenities, and how to reach the right person if any problems arose. It was a worry-free getaway with a beautiful stretch of the Gulf for us to enjoy 24-7. If you have never been to the Emerald Coast in September or October, you need to check it out. You cannot believe how warm and clear the water is. And there is lot to do and many uncrowded restaurants to enjoy without driving far. Patrick is a great host. I will definitely go again and recommend his place to friends.

Beautiful beach area. Great roomy townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this townhouse. I think the description of the townhouse is spot on. Beautiful area. We were on a girls trip but I think it would also be a great place for a family to stay.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great close to everything we all had so much fun and hated to leave. We lucked up on the weather despite the hurricane threats to ruin it.
