Easiet rental ever, cleanest, quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We live rather local in Pensacola (just 70 miles west) but wanted to spend a last minute weekend in Destin for a mini wedding anniversary weekend. We have used vrbo for rentals all around the country and Costa Rica. This time was the absolute easiest and all automated after booking. I booked it the day before we arrived. I had one text request that was answered quickly. We rented the two bedroom and it had everything you needed. It's not ocean front or ocean view but extremely close to one of the best beach access locations and popular bar restaurants located right on the Gulf. It's close to all the most popular shopping areas in Destin too. After a long day of beach madness its nice to have a quiet place to chill out with easy dedicated parking. You even had a private picnic table and grill for each individual unit that was a great option too.

The cottage is a Katrina cottage that had a lot of history locally. It again was so clean, neat, new, and well decorated. I loved it and would definitely stay again if I want another close to home staycation. Actually if they have them for sale I would love to buy one so please contact me if this is an option.

Cute cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself is so cute and very comfortable. All the necessities are provided for a vacation at the beach. The property is clean and easily accessible to the beach...an easy and convenient short drive. I would reccomend this property to someone that is looking for a relaxing stay in the Miramar area.

Very Clean and Quite

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Fish Tales and we loved it! The only thing I have to complain about it that I had to buy trash bags (only bag was in the can) and paper towels and its not that I had to buy but was not told I need to supply them which is fine with me. Also the dishwasher does not work. We will stay here every time we come to Florida. I have told everyone that will listen from Oklahoma that they have to stay here. Its way better than a hotel and in a great location!

Owner's Response: We always welcome and appreciate feedback from our guests. If there is an issue during your stay we do ask that our guests contact us directly so that we have the opportunity to get the issue resolved. We do provide the initial set of paper towels and trash bags and housekeeping is on site each day and would be happy to drop them off if we had been notified. We do ask all our guest let us know if something in the cottage is not working ( in this situation the dishwasher) so that we can send a repair person to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible. We want to ensure our guests enjoy their vacation with us and we are available by phone, email or text to help find a resolution to any issues our guests might have during their stay.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved not fighting for a parking space, and the property was easily accessible . My husband actually used the grill so it was very convenient. No worries about coming home with dirty laundry due to the washer and dryer amenities. I enjoyed my stay and hope to visit again soon!

Owner's Response: Our 1 and 2 bedroom cottages offer private parking for 2 cars and easy access to the Miramar Beach Public Access. We are just a short distance to numerous restaurants, shopping and local activities. Our 2 bedroom cottages do provide a washer/dryer; however due to the small size of the 1 bedroom cottages they do not offer a washer/dryer.
