Recent Vacationer Review: Have airplane tickets and will be staying here for the third time in May. Was down there last year when the oil was suppose to come ashore. Never happened! I can’t add much to the accurate description that is already given, but I can tell you how good it felt to sit on the balcony, have a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise. Because of its short walk to the beach (less than a block), I could go several times a day whenever I wanted. For the Destin experience I get there, I could not beat the price. I also know that if I have any questions or concerns once I get there, I won’t need a 800 number to get some help. Kathi, who manages the place, is right across the street where there are several more units available if you have a larger crowd. That’s our plan…this May…when we have a family get-together. Can’t wait! Steve

About Kathi

Lived in Iowa and Nebraska our whole life. Stayed in a cottage on the beach in Destin enroute to Disneyworld on our honeymoon and fell in love with the area! The beaches and water can't be beat. Have been vacationing there every year since. Several family members have purchased property near ours. Destin has become our second home.

Kathi purchased this house in 1992

Why Kathi chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Close to the beach and affordable. Across from Old Pier Motel my father and mother purchased 33 years ago.

What makes this house unique

Small private home, easy to keep up from a distance. We try to improve the property with each visit. You will find we do not update our calendar with bookings as we have several other 1- and 2-bedroom units and cottages available. Please call for detail.

Pier Destin-y

  • 4 of 5

My second long term stay using this families home. The inside of this place is clean and comfortable. It has everything you need, a fully stocked kitchen, an outdoor grill, laundry, beach chairs etc. I feel so fortunate to be able to come to Destin and escape the harsh winters in Maine. And to bring my faithful friend Hattie Mae and stroll through this charming beach community. The manager, Molly is excellent. They have become like family to us.

A Hidden Gem on the Emerald Coast

  • 5 of 5

We planned a last minute mini vacation to Destin and stumbled upon this hidden gem, Pier Destin-Y. Charming beach cottage, clean and nicely decorated. Perfect for a family of four. Added bonus that it was pet friendly for our two small dogs. Everything is well planned out here, just bring your bathing suit and beach towels. Our girls enjoyed the beach toys and boogie boards. Such a pleasure dealing with Kathy, she makes you feel right at home. We will be back and will share this hidden treasure with our friends and family.

Loved the Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend. Adorable place! Very close to shopping, eating, and relaxing. Awesome neighborhood to walk, especially if you have a pet. The only thing that needs correcting is this cottage only has 1 bathroom. Not a big deal for just us, but for a family or group, it might be difficult.

The beach is a very short walk and their are beach chairs provided. I also noticed a basket of toys for kiddos to use in the sand. (I would have used them, but I didn't want to embarrass my hubby....LOL!)

Had a great short trip and plan to go back as soon as possible!!!

Snow birds from Pennsylvania

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Pier Destin-Y for the months of January, February and March of 2014. We retired several years ago, and have been exploring winter destinations over the last 5 years, including Myrtle Beach, Vero Beach, FL, and Santa Rosa Beach, FL. And I must say that our stay at Pier Destin-Y has been the nicest. Staying for several months one gets to know the positives and negatives of a property. This property in Destin has, by far, exceeded our expectations for a "home away from home." The property manager is just across the street, and was very accommodating and helpful with anything that we needed. The beach is less than a block away, and in fact is visable from the wrap around porch. The unit itself is very comfortable and newly decorated. In our three month stay, I felt right at home as the unit is fully furnished including a fully stocked kitchen. But close by, easily within walking distance, are numerous restaurants and pubs/bars, shopping malls, and a grocery store (Publix).

My wife and I will definitely be back, if you are interested in the Destin area, this place is a must. I am writing this on our last night here (March 30, 2014), and I DO NOT WANT TO GO BACK TO PENNSYLVANIA!

The "Go-To-Place' in Destin

  • 5 of 5

Weather is getting colder in Nebraska, and already looking forward to a week in Destin next summer. Found my Go-To-Place (Pier-Destin-Y) on the web and thought I’d relive our vacation by writing. We stayed there three times and have nothing to add to the accurate description that is given (save me some time and just read how great this place is) , except to say we were surprised each time by the new updates. We decided between visits we were going to try a Southern Carribean cruise and the beaches are what we went for. Among ports, we stopped in Aruba and Caracao, and can honestly tell you that the beach that is one block from Pier Destiny can’t be beat. Expected the water in the Southern Carribean to be warmer (went in July) but it wasn’t. Didn’t expect the sand to be whiter or softer, and I was right about that. (Check the beach photos).

We will go back to Destin next summer. If you want to get fat, spend some money and see great beaches, go on a cruise., but if you just want the best beaches, great seafood, night life, and save some money, go to Destin and stay at Pier-Destin-Y.
