About Maggie

Hi,

Live in the UK but had a vacation rental in Destin for 27 years. Been around the world and no other beach community compares. I'm am dedicated to all my guests having the very best vacation they can possibly have. All proceeds from my rental are reinvested into the cottage.

I travel to Destin 6 times a year to quality control the cottage, along with professional property management. YOUR RESERVATION and MONEY are SECURE

I strive for my guests to have their best ever vacation and aim to respond within one hour.

My daughter lives on Miramar Beach and is there to help, just ask.

Her number is above the front door of the cottage

Maggie purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Maggie chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

What can you say about Destin??

Impeccably maintained quaint cottage with soaring ceilings. Has charm an individuality with that coastal look. All appliances updated regularly.

The beach, emerald waters, golf, fishing,culture, restaurants and shopping to die for. All in a small world environment which is safe and secure.

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING SPECIFICALLY, JUST ASK AND I'LL DO MY BEST TO ACCOMODATE

What makes this cottage unique

Year round weather, may be cold days, but there's always something to do. An environment that offers something for everyone. When it's cold, with a north wind, the south facing porch is a tranquil haven.

Watch the kids enjoy their vacation on the shallow beach. Let the big kids play golf or fish. Mum do what you want. Don't forget his credit card. ENJOY and please come back

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage proved to be everything we could have wished for in our Destin vacation.

The property is just wonderful; the interior furnishings are delightful, beds comfortable and there's everything you need in the kitchen.

The location is perfect; a quick stroll gets you to the private access to the beach (beach service included) and if you prefer, the pool is just a few strides along the street.

The front porch is an ideal place to relax and watch the world go by with a bottle of wine!

There's a great choice of restaurants, some within walking distance, many more if you wish to drive. Sunset at Captain Dave's is not to be missed!

The Outlet Mall at Silver Sands is worth a trip and there's numerous retail opportunities along 98.

The harbour is very busy and anyone interested in fishing would love it, however, there's loads to see and do for everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed the property and fell in love with Destin.

Looking forward to a return trip.

Great cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in this lovely cottage for our Spring Break trip with our family. It was perfect for the 6 of us, plenty of room, great location and very clean, cute and cozy!! Loved the front porch too!! We were only a few steps from the pool and beach! I can tell the owner takes great pride in the property and was very responsive to our needs(which were minimal). I would highly recommend the property to anyone looking to spend their vacation in Destin. We have been here several times and I truly loved the "neighborhood" feel vs condo.

"Hurry up and book it for next year"

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year to stay at this beautiful cottage. Every year as we are packing to head for home my family says "hurry and book it for next year". We love everything about it. The location so near the beach, the chair and umbrella set up, the nice furnishings, the front porch and the ice cream truck that comes by every afternoon. The owner is so kind and responsive. The management company makes sure it is always spotless upon our arrival and if we have an issue the address it very quickly.

October vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the property. Very clean and well presented. Also a very convenient location close to the beach with private access. A big bonus was the beach setup with chairs and sunshade. Frangista is near the golf courses and there is plenty of restaurants and shopping. This is the best beach we have ever visited.

Destin/Miramar beach is ideally situated for all the family. The famous white beach with crystal clear ocean, fishing and golf on the doorstep, restaurants too many to mention, shop till you drop.

For the kids their is the Track, bowling, bicycles, swimming, water park and much much more. Nature Trial and lakeside walks

There are also numerous, cultural activities through the Mattie Kelly Foundation, Seaside, and the Northwest College.

Fantastic shopping. High end, individual store and designer outlets.

Golf players could come for a week and play a championship course everyday. ASK AND DISCOUNT ROUNDS ARE AVAILABLE.

Fishing is available from Destin Harbour, whether you hire your own boat, take an individual charter, or share a trip and make friends.

Going further afield you can visit Gallery Night in Pensacola, this one Friday each month. Whilst there visit the Apache Fort in Fort Pickens. Drive back down the National Seashore, amazing.

Restaurants there ar far too many for me to mention all, but here are my favourites.

Cuvee Bistro, half price drinks and entrees before 9-00, where the 'IN CROWD' meet. Great musice from 9-00 Wednesday to Saturday

Ocean Club. Happy hour before 6. Buy one get one free. Ladies night Wednesday. Music Wednesday, Friday and Saturday

The iconic AJ's music every night.Snacks available on the deck overlooking the harbour. Full meals underneath. Where the locals and trendy set meet.

Ruth Chris. Expensive but great food . Have a phenomenal saxophonist.

Pizza, pasta, chinese, Indian
