What to do besides enjoy our wonderful beach...

Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices. Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding. We are a short 2 mile drive to the silver sands mall to the west, or luxury shopping at Destin commons to the east. Kenny d's, the crab trap, and pompano Joe's are all within walking distance to cayenne cottage. We encourage you to leave menus of your favorite restaurants when you come.

For evening entertainment, Destin is known for some wonderfully upscale eateries, as well as your regular fare. Friendly night life and nearby state of the art movie theater.

The silver sands outlet mall is a vacation in it’s own right for shoppers you will have access to over 100 stores, including, polo, Ralph Lauren, banana republic, brooks brothers, Eddie bauer, liz claiborne, Tommy Hilfiger, Lenox, Nike and Reebok - just to name a few. When you need to pause for nourishment choose from panera bread, cheeseburger in paradise or carrabba's italian grill.

More great shopping can be found at the Destin commons outdoor mall. Enjoy such great stores as Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor loft, banana republic, belk, books-a-million & Maui nix surf shop to rattle off a few. Stop for a bite to eat at the hard rock café, panera bread, tony’s ristorante or sushi siam. More than just shopping the Destin commons center plaza offers a soft-play kids playground and a 49-head pop fountain. Community activities and entertainment are held through the year at Destin commons. Rave motion pictures is also housed at Destin commons to catch the latest releases.

Baytowne wharf at sandestin golf & beach resorts offers wonderful dining and specialty stores as well as great festivals & events that are held at the market shops green or the center plaza within the village.

Grande boulevard offers stores such as billabong, brooks brothers country club, coldwater creek, j. Crew-at-the-beach, sunglass hut, & tommy bahama's emporium as well as great dining at tommy bahama’s , fleming’s, cantina laredo (if you dine here sit outside to enjoy the fountain!) & mitchell’s fish market.

The track amusement center in Destin, Florida offers mini golf, water bumper boats, go-carts & for those not faint of heart, bungee jumping.

Big kahuna’s water park is a favorite for young & old alike. Take a break from the wonderful Destin, Florida beach & spend the day here.

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. Water surrounds Destin with the intercoastal waterway to the north and gulf on the south, creating an abundance of water sports available, including kayaking, wave running, parasailing, kite surfing, snorkeling and so much more!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased. Upon arrival, the unit was clean and ready for us (even though we arrived a few hours early). Further, it was very well designed and perfectly suited for our family to enjoy vacation. Hands down, it's the best cottage we stayed at in Destin.

Kathy and Mike Shampine (Kastle Keepers property management group) are a joy to work with from beginning to end - from pointing us in the right direction when we book our stay to making sure all is well while we are there. I highly recommend working with them, regardless of where you make your reservations. They truly are second to none!

Awesome Vacation and Location

  • 5 of 5

We were all very pleased with this house. It met all of our expectations. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all of us. Loved that it was super close to the beach and pool and local restaurants. Kathy was great. We had an issue with the dryer being broken but she allowed up to use another property's dryer while we were waiting on the part to fix ours. I would highly recommend this property without hesitation. You won't be disappointed at all! Thank you Kathy!!!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the cleanliness of this unit. We have rented others in the past and have not had that same luck. It is much closer to the beach than the pictures show. It actually has another "bedroom" with a bunk in it so it can sleep a number of people for sure. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I love that this area is gated, yet close to great restaurants and shops. The pool is fabulous also. The house has a great layout and has beautiful decor that is perfect for our two families of four. Will come back soon!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home, would return in a heart beat. Very clean and great location. Loved the keyless entry, never had to keep up with a key or swipe card. We all could come and go with ease. Lots of extras in the kitchen to make your stay easy. Very well kept.

Beautiful home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and had more than enough room for our extended family vacation. It is located in a lovely neighborhood right across from the community pool and a short easy walk to the beach access. We also walked to a local restaurant and ice cream/shaved ice stand in the evenings. Easy drive to anything else you may need from Walmart, to the movies, to bumper cars. The weather was beautiful and we had a wonderful vacation, thanks Kathy!
