Reviewer Comments:

The property is as described. The walk to the beach takes 5-7 minutes. Not bad unless you are hauling a lot of stuff. The 3rd bedroom is really small but worked well for the 6 and 9 year old boys with us. For some reason they closed the community pools when the weather was still pretty good which was upsetting. My biggest issue with the house was that it lacked a lot of little things that I am used to having when I vacation this way. Simple things like salt and pepper, or coffee filters. No beach towels, no spare paper products, you have to provide everything. Not a huge deal, but for me things like that really help with the "home away from home" feeling.

Owner's Response: Hello Aaron, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay at Calypso. Chances are the pools were closed due to the approaching storm, so they could prepare for it since we weren't sure what it was going to bring to our beach. You'll find that most all rental management companies here in the area provide the initial set up of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, trash bags, etc. But things such as salt and pepper aren't typically provided since this is a food item. We do ask our guests to bring their beach towels but all other linens are provided for our guests. We hope you'll return to Miramar Beach again in the future! ~Destiny Beach Properties

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a wonderful stay for my family. It was not hard to get to and close to everything we needed. It is a walk to the beach, so we did purchase a wagon and it did definitely make it easier! I wanted to rate this property a 4.5, but was not given the option. It did not come with a set of beach chairs and umbrella like we were told and the TIKI Bar was not open. We thought maybe because we arrive out of season, but we had friends stay in the same addition and it was not open in July. Overall a great stay and hope to be back soon!

The cottage was great for 6+ people. Plenty of room and not to far from the beach. Would suggest a wagon to carry chairs, cooler, etc to beach.

Great house and neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

There were 7 of us and we were all very comfortable. Great layout for large dinners and entertaining all 15 of our family in town. Loved the 2 pools also! About a 5 minute walk to the beach, which was not bad at all. We would recommend this place! And Nancy was very responsive and helpful.
