Emerald Coast-Destin Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

You'll fall in love with the emerald waters and the sugar white sand of The Emerald Coast as you stroll along the beach.

The Coconut Cottage is your perfect home away from home with all of the comforts. We take extra steps to make sure our Cottage is immaculately cleaned and fresh for each visitor. We expect no less for you than we do for ourselves.

Destin Pointe has all of the amenities you look for in an exclusive beach club and is just minutes away from the bustling activities Destin has to offer. You can spend your day on the beach, swimming in the pool, shopping in town, fishing off the jetties or just reading a book on the front porch swing. The beach and pools are just an easy quiet walk away without leaving the property. There is actually a tram on property from May through September that will take you to the beach or pool so you won't have to worry about carrying all your beach necessities by hand.

You'll have such a wonderful time, you'll want to return again and agai

Why Paul Cassady chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This was an impressive area while maintaining a quaint almost tropical atmosphere. We spend time here and we love it here!!

What makes this cottage unique

When we purchased the Coconut Cottage we went through and purchased new mattress sets for both beds just like the ones we have at home, the KING'S DOWN king set. It was important to me to be able to sleep in comfort here just like I was at home. We also use 400 thread count or better sheets on both beds. After all, who wants to spend their vacation sleeping on a rock!!

We have stayed in the Coconut Cottage before, but were pleasantly surprised at the improvements and maintenance of this cabin! Will plan to stay here again next Summer!

This was the perfect property for four adults and a two year old! Pam Cassady was very attentive to our check in and check out needs. The property itself is very well landscaped making it feel like a tropical setting. The front porch and back yard provide great outdoor space for kids to play and adults to relax. The inside of the house was bright and festive feeling. It was very clean with everything we could have needed. Even at the height of the summer season, this gated area was always calm and peaceful. Easy access to the Gulf beach in one direction and the perfectly calm harbor beach in the other made the beach experience perfect. Great evening restaurants everywhere close. Doesn't get much better!

Great summer getaway! Every detail was thought of!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at the Coconut Cottage! The owner, Pam Cassidy, was EXTREMELY friendly and made sure every detail of the home was explained. Everything was perfectly laid out. There are even black out curtains to ensure a great night's sleep. Pam had great communication with us. We felt like we were renting the house from family! The cottage was immaculate and felt just like home! WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE! The ONLY con was that there was no full length mirror. Besides that, it had all the comforts of home. The access to the beach and private tram service was AMAZING! We will definitely be staying here again and again!

A great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Coconut Cottage! This is a lovely, comfortable and clean cottage with so much of the comforts of home. The owners are awesome to work with and they are very helpful and communicative, which was very important to us since this is our first experience with VRBO. They really have thought of so many things to make their guests' stay convenient. You have a full kitchen that is well-stocked with cookware, a washer and dryer, and two very nice bathrooms with lots of towels (just bring your own beach towels) along with super comfortable beds with very nice, soft linens. The owners even have a bucket full of beach toys for the little ones to use. We loved the back patio and were able to cook a nice meal on the grill provided. The property itself is perfect for families as it is a gated community with friendly guards, and has two very nice pools (both kid-friendly with one having a zero-entry area). Both pool areas have been renovated and are and close to the beach, and their bathroom facilities are quite clean as well. The Coconut cottage is a reasonable walk to the pools and the beaches (you have the gulf side beach and also a bay area beach as the community is at the tip of a peninsula/inlet). It helped us to bring our foldable wagon to cart our beach gear and our three year-old around. No need for that really if you just have a beach towel and a small bag to carry. There are chairs on the beach for you to rent if you so choose (about $25-35/day from an outside company), and a cart service that will pick you up at your rental and drive you to the pool/beach. All of the homes are beautiful to look at, so a stroll around the neighborhood is very nice. The best thing about this house is its location. You are a short drive to the hustle and bustle of Destin, yet the community is tucked away at the end of the peninsula so that you feel like you're comfortably separated from it all. Also, the beaches in front of the community were quiet and peaceful at the time we stayed here, and I believe that is because of the location itself. We saw so much marine life just from sitting on the beach, and overall, this was a truly wonderful week for our family. Given the opportunity, we will definitely return to the Coconut Cottage!

By the way, eat at Dewey Destin's, and Buck's BBQ!

The cottage, as always, was very clean and feels like our home away from home.

We very much enjoyed our trip to the cottage and look forward to coming again in the future. We liked the new linens in the master bedroom!
