Book Family Tides to have the relaxing, beautiful vacation you deserve. We have been going to differant vacation spots in this area for 35 years, our children have grown up having the best of times on the sunny beaches of Destin.

Now we have our precious grandgirls, they are loving it more each time they go. They love how Big Kahuna and The Track are so close as well as just walking a few steps to the pool and beach with private access.

Wonderful place to stay in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with our stay here. Loved the front porch with the swing and especially the gated front yard for our dogs. Usually when we stay at places we are having to leash them up every time they needed to go outside, so it was nice to not have to do that and let them run free. Also loved having the golf cart access. It made the stay even more enjoyable. The only thing I would have wanted changed is I wish we could have lowered the temp. in the house lower than 72 degrees (I tend to keep a pretty cool temp house bc it makes it easier on sleeping), but I understand why they have a cap on that bc in the distant past the ac has froze for other patrons. But other than that, our stay was great! We even walked to Destin Commons one day which is just a couple of blocks away and we could drive to the beach on the golf cart.

Wonderful family vacation in this cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this cozy lil beach cottage! We had 4 adults and 3 children and there was plenty room for us. The neighborhood was very quiet and adorable with all the white picket fences. The cottage was very clean and the kids LOVED the golf cart ride to the beach every day (which took maybe only 2 minutes on the cart)! The kids have already requested we come back here again next summer!

The property was conveniently located to the beach. We didn't have access to the golf cart so that was very disappointing. The indoor bugs were bad and there was a huge leak on the porch when it rained. The owners did seem to be very pleasant to work with. There were no beach towels, which was a shock because we travelled from CO and there was no way we could pack them.

Owner's Response: Please know that we as the owners of Family Tides do have the home regularly sprayed for insects and the like. (Florida is known to have the palmetto bug) We did offer to have our service come while this tenant was there but they declined. We do have the golf cart available and street legal. We also sent the tenant a reimbursement for the failure to have the golf cart available. We do not have beach towels, tenants do have to have their own. We take great pride in making all tenants happy during their stay at Family Tides. As always we do everything within our power to "make it right" and we very much appreciate the tenants letting us know where we can improve.
