Why Reservations chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We vacationed in the Terra Cotta subdivision in September 2010 with our kids and grandkids. We loved the area! We were considering buying property in this area and saw Chateau Margo on our walk to the beach one day. Well, the rest is history. We loved this house, we loved the size and the fact that it was very well maintained and had everything we would look for in a beach vacation rental. The vicinity to the beach was great, a short 2 minutes, you can see the community pool from the house. We love Pompano Joe's which is only about 1 mile and enjoyed The Crab Trap which is only about 1/2 mile away. And then there is the shopping...we actually rode bikes to the shopping center. Camille's is just a short walk where we enjoyed Latte's and lunch. I can't say enough about this house and the location....we loved it so much we bought it! Need we say more?

What makes this house unique

We keep several items in the garage that we like to use each year, i.e. chairs, 10x10 canopy, umbrellas, kids toys, etc. These are for our guests to use as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't describe our first family reunion at this house other than FABULOUS!!! I arrived on Friday night in the middle of a severe storm and entered the house and was amazed. All the furnishings are beautiful. The linens on the beds is so nice. There is so much silverware and dishes in the kitchen you couldn't ask for more, plus you have the extra kitchen in the basement. There were 11 of us with 3 children under the age of 6. They had so much room to play. The pool is directly across the street from the house and there were never more than 2 other people in the pool. It only takes about 3-4 min. to walk to the beach, of course Destin beach can't be beat. The TVs were all good but there was only one DVR which didn't work but who cares, no one wanted to watch it anyway, too much other stuff to do. All the bedrooms had outdoor porches to enjoy. The main deck and the deck downstairs had tables and room for all of us. The brand new grill was wonderful and we used it every night. We cooked 3 meals a day and no one's diet was in force. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone, big or small. The eleven of us fit in nicely and had beds to spare. The towels were so plush you just wanted to soak or shower and then enjoy fluffy towels to dry. The garage had lots of beach stuff to use (although we brought a lot of our own which we won't the next time). There were 2 bicycles in the garage for our use and we sure used them. It was so much fun to bike around the neighborhood. The Crab Shack and Pompano Joe's is so close you could walk to them for lunch or dinner. Jim and Betty were very accommodating and we will look forward to coming back to this house for many years. I told Betty she would have to get a lawyer to physically remove me from the house cause I wasn't going to leave. I did but sure didn't want to. Thank you so much for making our reunion a wonderful experience.

Very worn and tired looking needs some up dating

  • 3 of 5

Would not stay there again. For the money we were expecting more. Needs a lot of updating very worn and tired looking. Refrig. ice maker didn't work good some times you had hot water in kitchen sometimes you didn't. Dining table was about to fall down. Air conditioner couldn't keep house cool in the day. We did have plenty of room and plenty of beach supplies. We had a good time just expected a little more for the money. Could have been cleaner.

Great home for big families!

  • 4 of 5

We were very satisfied with this home. It was very clean and we had everything we needed provided for us. We got to spend A LOT Of time in the house because unfortunately it rained every day we were on vacation except one. There were double red flags up so we couldn't swim in the ocean due to bad weather. The pool was great, we did swim in the rain several times! We had 15 people and we never once complained about not having room. The only thing we were bummed about is the grill. We were going to grill out the night before we left as an easy meal but the grill didn't have any gas so we ended up cooking inside. Thank you for a great stay, we will definitely recommend this home.

Very nice home. The beach was a short walk. The kids enjoyed the community pool. There were plenty of beach items for us to use. The house was very spacious. We would definitely book this home again.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay consisted of 12 family members (three combined families). The house slept great for us. It's big enough that if you would like some privacy you have a place to go. All the rooms have televisions and are comfortable enough to relax and enjoy time to yourself. The living room is also big enough for everybody to gather on one floor and enjoy meals or game night. We loved our stay and the easy access to the beach. Upon arrival we noticed the AC was not working. I made one call and they had someone out to fix it. The house is also close to restaurants and other entertainment. Lot's of room and lot's of fun. I highly recommend this house.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our families included grandparents to toddlers, and we felt like this location was perfect for us. There was lots of room, privacy for each family, and we loved the location being one block from the private beach and also close to the community pool. We also enjoyed the friendliness of the people who live in the community. When the dishwasher did not work late one afternoon, we called the property manager, and within 20 minutes a repairman was out to fix it. The property manager also stopped by and made sure everything was okay.

We loved the wireless Internet, and the availability of a Roku so that we could log in to Netflix or Amazon Prime accounts. We would definitely return to this location.
