Love this Beach Home - Clean, Nice, Large

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 has stayed here 3 times now. We love everything about this home - very large bedrooms, clean, 3 full bathrooms, comfortable beds, short walk to the beach, and nice pool. I cannot say enough good things about this home. Sleeps 8 very comfortably in beds (2 king beds). Master bedroom is huge with a great bathroom. Would highly recommend this home to any family needing 3 bedrooms or more. Walk to the beach is about 200 yards.

Beachcomber Stay. Jan12-Feb27 2013

  • 3 of 5

This house is in a beautiful community. The house itself is very nice and a good size for a family. It is well equipped and there is little that you will need for your stay. Although our overall assesment is average, this is due to the quality of the living room furniture and master bedroom mattress. If you have back issues, this home may not be for you. For most people, the furniture may be acceptable, but for our needs, it was not. My wife has had back surgery and is prone to back problems.

I recognize that this is a rental property and that a landlord needs to make a profit. However, i believe that this home is overdue for at least new living room furniture. This could be a great property with a little investment and would rate a definate recommendation

On a more positive note, the property managers that look after this home, are GREAT. They are Kathy and Mike are very helpfull and responsive to any questions or issues. They made our stay more pleaseant.

Christmas on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very warm and inviting. It was what we wanted, being close to the beach and convenient to shopping, dining, and sight seeing. This was my first time staying in a vacation rental by owner and I was a little inconvenienced that there were no basic spices or coffee for one morning. Fortunately we arrived before the stores closed and was able to get what we needed for the next morning,

I would highly Recommend this House!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Destin several times and

have stayed in this particular complex

twice, although this was our first year

for the beachcomber. We came with my

extended family and this house was

perfect for our needs. I would highly

recommend this house and would

definitely stay again. The beach and

pool are a short walk, which is great

with small children. I like to run as

well, and the biking/walking/running

path on 98 is perfect.

Golf: Of course we can not forget to mention Golf!

Dont forget our wonderful Golf courses!

There are (10) Championship golf courses within four (4) miles of the Beach Retreat Cottage community. Each offers its own character and challenges. All are public courses with full service facilities with a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons and pro shop stocked to meet your needs.

Destin, Florida is known as the ”World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” & boasts of being home to the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida. Fish from the beach or boat. If you do not want to bring your boat, one of Destin’s many charter boats would love the opportunity to take you out for full or half day excursions.
