Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed over Spring Break 2016. We enjoyed the location of the cottage and the local area attractions. This was our second time staying in the neighborhood and we were not disappointed. Twist of Lime Cottage - met all our needs and Courtney was wonderful to work with, she attended to some concerns very timely and appropriately. Our favorite day was when we rented bikes at "Buddy's", and rode to Grayton Beach State Park. The beach and the sand dunes were beautiful and pristine. Also, Buddy's Bike Rental - has the best ice-cream !

Great location & neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our brief stay at Twist of Lime. The house is layers out well and has plenty of room for 6-8 guests. It could use some barhroom updates but everything worked. We also brought our two yorkies and they enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. It is a short 5 minute walk to the beach.

Wonderful Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Love Santa Rosa!!! The Old Florida Cottages Community is great. Well kept pool, grills, restrooms and roads. Twist of Lime was a nice open cottage with lots of room. We had 4 adults and 4 teenagers, never was crowded. This cottage was 1 of the best cleaned places we have stand. Nice job to the cleaning service!!!!!

Great Family Reunion House

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Santa Rosa Beach. This house is far from what one pictures as a cottage: It is spacious, and beautifully designed, and it easily accommodated our party of 8, two families of four, including four teens/young adults.

The location was excellent (only two blocks from the beach), and it was a short drive to restaurants and shopping.

It was very clean and comfortable, with ample space for our party of 8 to spread out. Three bathrooms were very helpful, too. We enjoyed the gorgeous beaches at sunrise and sunset, and found them to be far less crowded than others in FL. We also went deep-sea fishing and used the convenient, centrally-located BBQs to grill the day's catch. The outdoor shower was a nice plus, and we appreciated the sand chairs and umbrellas in the outdoor storage locker.

All in all, it was a great get-away, and we would recommend a Twist of Lime, especially for large groups and families with kids.

Destin Dream

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying in this unit! Loved the roomy comfort. I love Destin and this is the perfect place to stay while visiting. There are so many shops and restaurants nearby. You have the added bonus of enjoying shopping in Destin, Sand Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and Mary Esther. The staff is SUPER friendly and very helpful. Can't ask for a better unit~ location is perfect. Don't walk~ RUN to snatch this one up for some rest and relaxation!:)

We stayed at this condo the week of spring break. We had an amazing time, and the condo is amazing as well. Very clean and had plenty of room. Courtney is a great girl to work with very flexable and willing to work with you. Overall I would recommend staying at this rental to anyone staying in the destin area. My family and I had a really memorable vacation thanks to Courtney.
