About Patrick McCaghren

I live in Birmingham, AL and this is my personal vacation home. I've owned it for many years (thus my low VRBO listing number) and keep it very updated. Very private yet right in the heart of Destin (see map). Just as quiet and peaceful as the day I bought it! Drive right up to the front door and unload your car (no elevators to deal with). Short 200 yard walk to the beach.90+ positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

What makes this townhome unique

Very quite and private. Close to pool and tennis courts. Drive up and park at front door. Townhouse condo ... no elevators to deal with.

Short walk to Beautiful white-sandy beach (200 yards).

Heart of Destin - convenient to new Harbor Walk restaurants, Wal-Mart, Target, WalGreens, Wynn-Dixie, Publix, Home Depot

Five acre fresh water lake on property stocked with bass and brim (catch and release fishing).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Patrick!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with my family and I. It was perfect! We had no troubles with it at all. It was everything you said it was and more! I loved that the beach was just a short walk across the parking and the condo was located in the middle of all the attractions and shopping. We had an amazing time in Destin and hope to visit there again in the future. I would most definitely consider staying at your condo again! Thank you again for everything!



Sincerely,

Keri

Hidden gem - perfect for family, kids, and seniors

  • 5 of 5

The 2-story unit (#79) is just exactly like pics. We are a family with 3 children and grandparents. The place is fully and comfortably furnished, can easily accommodate 8pp. Kitchen is cozy and overstocked w utensils, silverware, a variety of glasses, pots/pans...My wife & grandma loved it!! Right across the street the main highway 98 is all the shopping you ever need: grocery & drug, beach stores, restaurants/bars, nails/hairs...7 min walking on foot! And if there's something else your family needs, Super Walmart is less than 2 miles away.

My father really liked the semi-private backyard and short distance of beachfront access. The kids enjoyed the beach everyday. There's an area to rinse off right next to the beachfront gazebo pathway so they didn't have to take showers when they got home, that cut down a lot of time and logistics for me as a busy/stressed out dad. Pat is the perfect invisible landlord, always waiting in the background anticipating my calls. And when I called, Pat was always responsive, courteous to my needs, and prompt to return calls/text msgs if I missed him.

We had a great time and memories here over this trip. We would repeat staying here for the next opportunity to be in Destin again!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Two different families stayed in this beautiful condo for Spring Break. The size was perfect for us and just a short walk to a private beach. The pool is heated which was perfect for the kiddos because it was too cold to swim in the ocean at that time. We plan on returning in the near future.

Thank You for sharing this home with us!

Great location, condo was well stocked, kitchen and bath.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our beach vacation in Destin. Our Grandchildren enjoyed the heated pool in the complex as we encountered some cool weather. The owner of the condo was very attentive with any question. We are looking forward to another stay, hopefully soon.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I spent 6 weeks at this condo that was clean, convenient, and a very short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches that we have been on, anywhere in the world. You are within five minutes to stores, such as, Target, Starbucks, Winn Dixie, Walmart and dozens of restaurants. Very well maintained grounds and condo with all of the conveniences needed for a short or extended stay at the beach. Very quiet location that even has a fresh water lake on the premises that is full of fish and turtles. The owner Patrick, was always available and very helpful with any questions that we may have had. Very affordable and super value when compared to similar complexes in the area.....
