We stayed in this wonderful house for a week and loved it! The moment we drove into this quaint, charming community we felt at home. We loved the house and the proximity to the beach and pool (short walk to both)! The house is exactly how it looks in the pictures and was very clean. We had expected a tv in the 3rd bedroom and there wasn't one, but we called the management and they had one installed within an hour and were very helpful on places to go and eat since this was our first trip to Destin. Clippers Cove is just what I imagined for a small beach community. All the houses are well maintained and painted pastel colors with white picket fences...picture perfect. My son enjoyed the ice cream truck (music and all) that came around every evening. Just like when I was a kid at my grandmothers house! The house is close to everything you want to do in Destin. Just a short drive to the Harborwalk, excursions, great resturaunts and within walking distance to great shopping!
