Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

You'll Love it! 'Starfish' is a cute beach cottage with an open floor plan and a wraparound, second-floor balcony steps to the beach! It is furnished nicely and decorated with a designer's touch! Granite counters, upgraded Legacy white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Eighteen-inch tile throughout the living area, kitchen, and bathrooms. LCD Flat Screen TVs in the Living Room and Both Master Bedrooms! 3 Blu Ray DVD Players too! Other features include nine to ten foot ceilings and sound-proof insulation between the floors. WiFi too!

2 King Beds! There is a King bed in the master on the main floor and a King bed in the master on the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor bedroom is the bunk room for the kids! It has a full size beds on the bottom bunks and twins on the top bunks sleeping 6 in the kid's room! There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room.

Beach Retreat is a gated community with only 24 cottages just across the street from the beach. It is a very short walk to a private beach access, maybe 110 yards, with over 300 feet of beach frontage! The neighborhood has brick paver streets lined with colorful Florida Cottages, professional landscaping, and a huge 3000-square-foot pool with a club house, sun deck, and barbecue grills! Conveniently located to Destin Commons Mall and all other activities! Silver Sands Outlet Mall is close too!

Sleeps up to 10 with two king-size beds, four bunk beds (two twins and two full-size beds), and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Our bunks are designed for children. We have space for 2 vehicles. An extra one may be parked at the Clubhouse for an extra $10 per day fee.

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep-sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes emerald green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!'

Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports. Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes twice to three times a year, event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you will want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

Managed by Crystal Waters Vacations. We have other properties that may meet your needs. If this home is not exactly what you are looking for, check out our others! Give us a call or send us an email for more information!

Reviewer Comments:

We had an excellent stay at this wonderful home. About 200 yards to the beach and 59 yards to the pool. This home is in a very well kept gated community and in close proximity to great shopping and restaurants and grocery stores. We definitely will stay here again. No ocean view from this home but the beach is so close.

Reviewer Comments:

Great stay except for the fact that we had to leave the house by 9 a.m. Would rather be able to get into the room an hour later than to have to get up that early on vacation.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! The check out time is at 9am so that we can get it ready for the next group. It is flexible in the off season but when someone is coming in, we have to get it ready!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a nice time. The location is convenient with an easy walk to the beach and pool. It was a short drive to groceries, restaurants and shopping. The development is very attractive. Starfish is not brand new, and probably ready for some updates to furniture, etc. but it served our needs very well. We had two small children with us who still nap during the day. Having a private home instead of a condo/apartment gave us more privacy and quiet when we needed it.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is in an awesome gated area. Perfect area to stay. The owners need to have more dish towels and better knifes for cutting while cooking. The pots were very greasy before we used them so they had to be cleaned. Also the cleaning crew needs to vacuum sofas and stools, they were full of sand! But overall our vacation was great! We would definitely stay there again!!

Overall it was very good. Great floor plan. My only complaint is the grill situation. It's a very long walk. Trying to carry everything over that distance is a little rediculas.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is a great floor plan with nice upgrades and the best location! The grills are over by the pool, not very far! That is an HOA requirement that they not be at the homes.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was in very good condition other than the dirty carpet on the stairs. Being able to walk to the beach was a plus, although the rain and cold in late December made things less than ideal. Don't be fooled by the pictures, the houses in this area are almost stacked on top of each other so don't expect any privacy outside. There is no yard and no place to grill outside. What you have here is a nice place to stay with comfortable beds and decent kitchen. Pray that the weather is good during your stay because without the beach and water activities activities you're stuck watching TV. The gated community might sound nice, but the key pad is on the right so unless you have a passenger you have to get out of the car to use the key pad to open the gate.

Owner's Response: Starfish is a nice cottage very close to the private beach access! It is located in a gated neighborhood with 23 other cottages. They are all very nice and have a great location to the beach and to several restaurants along the beach. The weather is unpredictable but most people find plenty of activity to keep them busy in Destin!

Starfish is in a small gated neighborhood about 100 yards to the private beach access! Not yet mapped by most GPS systems. Might can find Cottage Row in Miramar Beach on the map which is in the neighborhood of only 24 homes. Walk to up to 4 restaurants along the beach!
