Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

YOU MUST BE 25 YEARS OLD TO RENT!!! NO exceptions!

Lowest rates in Mainsail cottages! My neighbors are not happy with me because my cottage is nice and my rates are low! Wow- you would probably spend more for a single lousy room at the Ramada. Why not stay in a 3 BR cottage for my 'I hate vacancy' rate?

I typically fill about half the calendar every year with returning guests. We have a wonderful guest retention/return rate because the place is beautiful, the process is easy and the owner is very customer oriented. (If I may say so myself!)

HERE'S THE DEAL....anytime after Labor Day and before Jan 1, with a minimum stay of 3 nights, the rate is $129/night plus cleaning and tax. For a long term visit of 30 days or more, CALL ME AND LET'S MAKE A DEAL! We have a great snowbird community that will make you feel very welcome. Try it one year and you'll want to make it an annual event!

Two minute walk to beach and a heated pool out the back door. Silver Sands outlets right across the street. If it feels like a home, that's because it is. 1700 square feet of living space can comfortably sleep 12. TV, VCRs and DVD players both upstairs and downstairs keep the kids occupied while mom and dad dress for a night out at one of the area's fine restaurants.

Need to hold costs down? Full kitchen and BBQ grills allow you to eat in. Care for a view? Private balcony off upstairs bedroom allows for scenic overlook. We are in a quiet, gated community so you need to make no effort to avoid noise and crowds.

We came to Destin on vacation for the first time in 1997 and loved it so much, we eventually bought this 2nd home. We need the rental income and have tried to make our cottage as enticing as can be so you will want to come back time and time again.

A wonderful, relaxing retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Our family came to celebrate our daughter's graduation from college. Visiting family could not believe how perfect the accommodations were for this event. We had plenty of room for everyone. We also enjoyed the many amenities offered at Mainsail. The overall feeling was peaceful and family members came and went to the beach as desired. Others relaxed on the back patio with coffee and shared stories with younger generations. We had almost everything we needed at our fingertips. Winn Dixie was only a couple blocks away and Silver Sands Outlet Mall was just across the main thoroughfare. We were close to many other conveniences as well. Mainsail is gated and the security provided added to our feelings of serenity. Although we were not on the beachfront, the walk was reasonable and we had the heated pool and grills available just out the back door. The property also allowed plenty of room for parking which we definitely needed as family arrived and departed at various times throughout the week. I could not give five stars due to the fact that when the maintenance company was contacted about some needed repairs they promised to come and never did. The blue sleeper sofa in the smallest room was broken and we were fortunate that we had a spare air mattress to use or we would have been short on "beds". Overall, we had a very pleasant experience and would love to stay here again sometime.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. One additional comment regarding the management company. When the guest concerns were passed along to the mgt company by the owner earlier today, the mgt company stated that they had a pleasant conversation with the guest and were told that none of the concerns were urgent and that they need not come right over. Based on those comments, so as to not disrupt the guests, the management company had scheduled the repairs (battery replacement in clock and mechanism on sleep sofa) for today. To say that they failed to respond in a timely fashion is a bit of a misrepresentation of the facts.

From a yearly customer!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!! This place is well worth the money. It's just steps from the ocean and has a heated pool out the back door. The cottage is always meticulous when we arrive. It's a family friendly area, very peaceful and relaxing location to get away. This was our 7th stay and we always look forward to next year.

Phil makes the booking process seemless. He ensures that from reservation to check in and check out, the customer is well informed and at ease.

A BEAUTIFUL HOME/COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

My family first spent a week in this beautiful home/ cottage in 2011. Since then we have returned 6 more times and stayed in cottage 25. I am not sure why it is called a cottage as it is a fully furnished beautiful home. We bring our children along with their spouses and there is plenty room for all of us. The house is always very clean when we arrive. There is a pool within steps of your back door. The beach is a very short walk. All we have to do is pack our clothes and leave. Everything you need is in the house. Where else could we stay with all these amenities and feel at home. Phil is great to work with. I would recommend this cottage/ home to anyone that is looking to vacation in Destin. It is within walking distance to the Sands Outlet Mall and several other places. My family and I will continue to stay in cottage 25 while in Destin. We feel as if we are at home. Thank you Phil for sharing your home with us!
