The cottages in Clipper Cove are quaint reminders of days gone by with white picket fences, front porches, and bright decorative colors, with the entire community built on a cul-de-sac.

This wonderful 3 bedroom - 2 bath beach cottage is located in the beautiful Crystal beach community of Destin Florida.

We suggest walking to the corner Bistro ( Camille's ), sit on the veranda, read the paper and enjoy a relaxing breakfast and cup of coffee while watching the morning joggers pass by. While at the beach, try one of their smoothies or return in the evening for some of the finest Sushi or seafood in Destin.

Peaceful, "like home" vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have come back to this neighborhood twice and love it more each time. Quiet, clean neighborhood. Rental company is super friendly and helpful! House is clean and great for a small or large family! Short walk to the beach and our fav breakfast place Camille's. Close to grocery shopping & outlets as well. Pool is clean and great for a non-salty swim day. Highly recommended this house & Property Mgmt company! We will be back!

Great property has everything you need for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a lovely community. It has all the amenities needed, it is very clean and the internal decoration is very elegant. Kitchen is fantastic fully equipped. We used the outside BBQ a lot to prepare our fresh fish that we were getting almost every day from Sexton's fish market. Walking distance to the beach, we never used a car and then you find your reserved umbrella and chairs! What a great surprise! Especially when the beach is crowded you do not need to worry. Coming back, the outdoor shower is the first stop. Having both hot and cold water makes the internal showers a redundancy -:). The shopping center is at walking distance, although we were using the car for a 3 minute drive. We enjoyed the cool breeze coming from the sea while walking at the shops. We had a great time, stayed for 2 weeks and we did not get bored! Great family vacation we will be back soon.
