Our HOME away from home...

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from almost 4 glorious months at Stowaway Cottage. We feel blessed to enjoy Destin through the winter months . We live in Ohio. This year we were welcomed to the beautiful aquamarine color befitting the name of our "cove" and matching the gulf! We spend the winter on the first floor and have two bedrooms and a bath upstairs for friends or family when they visit. If the icemaker balks or the disposal needs a tweak Kathy sends help immediately. ( 'Wish I had that service at home) I enjoy the pool at the end of our street. It was clean and warm all winter. Stowaway Cottage has GOOD views of the sunset right from the patio!

Awesome home and rental company

  • 5 of 5

The house was very roomy and open. It was very well stocked. The dishwasher was perfect every load, as well as the very nice and extremely large washer and dryer. It was a blessing to rent a place like this. Also Kathy was always there to answer all my questions which is very important to us!!

Perfect for a couple or large family

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my husband and me! Clean, well taken care of and all on one floor for us, and yet, when we bring the rest of the family plenty of room on the second floor. The upstairs balcony is the perfect place to have your morning coffee.The kitchen was fully equipped...made it FUN to cook some nights. Close to the pools and beach and amazing golf courses. Two of our favorite restaurants are McGuires and The Back Porch . We stepped out of our comfort zone and went parasailing at Wet n Wild...Awesome!
