Let the good times roll at the Creole Cottage! Enjoy long lazy days at the most beautiful beaches in the world. The Creole Cottage is nestled in the quaint neighborhood of Destin Pointe. The neighborhood features two pools, hot tubs, tennis facilities, mulitple beach access, nature boardwalks, shuffle board, and many other great ammenities.

We fell in love with Destin and Holiday Isle in the 1970's and have never been able to get the sugar white sand out of our shoes! Destin Pointe has all of the great ammenities of an exclusive beach club while being nestled in the heart of all the activities featured on the Emerald Coast.

We hope that you love the Creole Cottage and Destin Pointe as much as we do and we look forward to sharing our piece of heaven with you.

About Callie Barker

The Creole Cottage is a family owned home that we all love to gather and have great times together. Our family has grown over the years with kids and grandkids now to the small clan size of 19 without our four legged family members. We love to travel but Destin is our favorite destination.

Callie Barker purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Callie Barker chose Destin

We chose Destin Pointe because of all of the ammenities offered while maintaing a great centralized location. We love the fact that we have great beaches surrounding two entire sides of the neighborhood while shopping, restaraunts, and ammenities are literally 2 minutes away. Also the residents of Destin and Destin Pointe are some of the friendliest and helpful that we have met. We just love Destin and wanted to make it our second home.

What makes this cottage unique

We love catching our own crabs and fish for dinner, having happy hour on the beach or back porch overlooking the lake, and our favorite is playing in the sand, surf and pools!

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Creole Cottage. It was absolutely adorable and perfect for our family of 4. Callie, the owner, was so nice and easy to talk to and made us feel so welcome to stay in her vacation home. I would definitely stay here again. We felt right at home. It was in walking distance to the pool at the Magnolia House.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had great weather and enjoyed the easy access to the beach. The cottage was perfect for our family of 5. Great amenities and clean. Not much within walking distance, needed a car to get to shopping and restaurants. Would recommend it! We hope to go back!!

Relax at the Creole

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the Creole Cottage. Perfect location and size for our family and it is hard to beat Destin Pointe for a relaxing vacation. A short walk or ride on the shuttle to the beach or pool and there's also a pool just across the street. I would highly recommend the Creole Cottage.

Perfect Vacation Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying at the Creole Cottage, and it was a wonderful experience. Her home was perfect for our family of 4. Callie was so easy to work with.... The pools and beach were so close and convenient. We enjoyed walking around the pond, catching frogs, biking to the ice cream store, and relaxing in the sun! I would definitely recommend her beautiful home and would love to stay next year. Thank you!

Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly what we wanted - a get-a-way on the beach. The cottage was clean, easy to use, and comfortable. The beach was a short walk away and was not busy at all because of the time of year we went. We had a great time and hopefully can return soon.

Just What We Were Looking For

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week in Destin this year and the Creole Cottage made our stay relaxing, comfortable and convenient. The cottage was perfect for our small family of 3, but I would imagine that it would comfortably accommodate 4-5 too. The location is fantastic! The grounds in Destin Pointe were beautiful, well kept and we felt very secure because of the guarded entry. One of the nicest of conveniences was the tram. With one quick call, they would pick us up with all of our beach gear and drop us off at the entrance to the was fantastic! Callie was so nice to work with and the financial transaction was done in a very safe and secure manner. We will definitely be visiting in the future! This cottage is a won't be disappointed!
