Starting at $180.00 a night
'Paradise Cottage' is a spacious three-story, cottage-style home located in the heart of Crystal Beach, one of Destin's most popular communities due to its proximity to the beach, restaurants and shopping.

***Please Note: You must be at least 25 years of age to book Paradise Cottage. College-age spring break groups are not permitted, regardless of chaperone.***

Located on a tranquil cul-de-sac the home is just one block from the beach and within walking distance to four major shopping centers including the newly expanded Destin Commons where you will find an abundance of shopping opportunities w/stores like Bass Pro Shop, Belk, Abercrombie, etc.. Also holds The AMC Movie Theater and many other shops and restaurants. In addition, several of Destin's finest golf resorts are within a 5 minute drive from the home. To give you an idea of how close these award winning courses are, here is a list: Regatta Bay (1) mile, Kelly Plantation (1) mile and Indian Bayou (3) miles for starters.

Perfect for a family or a couples' vacation every bedroom has a private bath, flat screen TV with Cable. Relax in the large jacuzzi tub in the Master Bath or take a siesta on the screened porch just off the Master Bedroom. On evenings when you want to dine in there's a large stainless steel gas grill on a shady grilling deck with plenty of cookware and a pantry to make your meal a bit easier to prepare. The large open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living area adds to the enjoyment. As an added bonus, we have updated all of these rooms with new furnishings and accentuated the kitchen with granite, plaster backsplash and cool coastal paint for the cabinetry including all bathrooms! Additionally, there are 2 queen sofas in the living room if needed along with the tower/bunk room!

Enjoy our newly renovated air-conditioned Paradise Tower which has added a Twin Day Bed w/Trundle to the top floor! This room also includes a flat screen TV and additional remote A/C unit. Perfect for teens or an extra guest to enjoy the view from the top of Destin! Gulf view, morning sunbathing, afternoon sea breezes and fabulous evening sunsets make the third floor deck one of the home's main attractions. If there 's a book worm in your group, the third floor tower/widow's watch, is surrounded by windows allowing endless natural light. Also, coffee it up or wine it down each day on the relaxing wrap-around front porch w/a plantation swing.

Cool off in the community pool conveniently located just across the street which is also heated in the spring and fall months.

The neighborhood is quiet and secluded, but still an easy walk to the beach! Additionally, there are over 35 restaurants within walking distance! Some favorites include: Bonefish Grill, Smash Burger, Craft Bar, Wine World, Miller's Ale House, & Thai Basil.

Drive a short distance to Jordano's for terrific pizza, BBQ at Buck's, BBQ lunch at Lillie's,
great seafood at Dewey Destin's, Japanese food at Osaka, & excellent Mexican at Cantina Laredo in Grand Boulevard.

Along the beach, try The Back Porch or Pompano Joe's. For excellent breakfasts we recommend Another Broken Egg and The Donut Hole.

Also nearby is an upscale shopping center, The Destin Commons - It's within walking distance and includes a movie theatre. The Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall is also just a short drive away.

This gem of a hidden community has everything you could want for a relaxing & exciting vacation - we know you'll love it - we sure do!

Great House!!

Date of Stay:

Great house!! The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and plates. The back porch and front porch were really nice—so is the screened porch on the second floor/master bedroom. We grilled out one night and sat in the front porch swing and talked for hours the weather was soooo nice. In the 70s at the end of April. The neighborhood is really nice and quiet. The beach is about a 5-10 minute walk. There is a cut through close to the house to the main road. There is a pavilion at the beach that has picnic tables, restrooms, and showers to rinse off. You can rent umbrellas and chairs at the beach. The view from the 3rd floor balcony is really nice. There is a small daybed/trundle up there too. The house has a washer and dryer too wish helps when you have small kids. The house was clean and perfect for our family of 6 adults and 3 kids under 5. One of the bedrooms is on the first floor so if you have a baby/toddler they don’t have to go up stairs. We had a great time and it was a beautiful house in a great area. Good restaurants close by and bass pro shop too.

Great Location - Very Clean!

The house is in a great location on block from the beach, beautifully decorated and perfect for a multi family gathering. we loved the screened in porch off the second floor Master bedroom. The neighborhood is very clean and convenient to grocery stores and shopping.


Date of Stay:

Our stay was fantastic! The location could not have been better - it was a quick and easy 1 1/2 block walk to the beach. Even easy with young kids. There were a ton of beach toys for the kids, beach chairs, etc. The pool a few houses down was a great option for when we didn’t want to beach it. Would stay here again and highly recommend.

Highly Recommended!

Date of Stay:

Great home for kids and adults, close to the shortcut out of the neighborhood to the main sidewalk to a great beach. The home is very well equipped for the beach with all of the necessities (chairs/ umbrellas) and extras (boogie boards and toys for the kids). Highly recommended!

Wonderful Vacation!

This property was perfect for our stay! Walking distance to everything you need; from the grocery store to the Commons to the beach. We could not have asked for better during our stay and our hosts, Kim and Andy, were amazing! Quick to respond and extremely accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! Thank you both so very much for being such awesome hosts!! Our vacation was such a blessing and so much fun!

Absolutely loved it!

Date of Stay:

My family of five recently stayed at this beautiful "little" beach cottage and we absolutely loved it! It is obviously cared for and its a perfect retreat at the end of a summer day. The house is well stocked with plenty of room. The master bed was exceptional and we loved our screened patio off the master bedroom. The kitchen has everything you'll need and more. Not only was the house perfect, but the neighborhood is its own little Florida Mayberry. It was an easy 5-8 minute walk to the beach. We felt safe letting our kids (15,13 and 7) ride their bikes around the neighborhood, down to the pool, and to the beach. Each kid had their own room and each one found a favorite thing about the house. One of my favorites was the rest and relaxation I found on the porch swing. We would recommend this house to anyone and we hope to be back again soon. One more thing, if you're looking for a delicious meal, we highly recommend Camille's located on the corner right across from the beach. We could not have asked for a better vacation. Thank you for sharing your home with us Kim and Andy!

Highly recommend - will stay here again!

Date of Stay:

We stayed in this beautiful home in August and had a fabulous week . We had plenty of space with 6 adults and 2 children, and especially appreciated the beach toys, wagons, and chairs!!

Perfect Family Vacation!

Date of Stay:

Perfect place for a big family vacation! Such a spacious comfortable home and a lot of conversations on the huge front porch. We all loved the swimming pool just down the block. We had several rainy days but played cards a lot with the decks there at the house and drank smoothies we made with the blender. The table was so big and all 12 of us could sit around at meals. A short walk to the beach! We had a great stay and recommend the house to a big family!

A Magical Home Away!

Date of Stay:

Paradise Cottage is a beautiful home to stay at. My family was in Destin for my sisters wedding and truly enjoyed staying at Paradise Cottage especially the bride who stayed until the wedding.

We were pleased with the home and the short walking distance to the beach!

Date of Stay:

We had 4 couples staying for almost a week and plenty of room to spread out. We loved the long kitchen table with plenty of seating. We spent our mornings on the front porch swing, afternoons at the beach and evenings BBQing on back porch.


Date of Stay:

We are coming back! This house was great! The perfect size for a couple families with kids and it is just steps from the beach. The kids loved sleeping in the loft.

Very nice house with plenty of sitting and mingling area at table and living room!

Date of Stay:

Things are a little hard to find in the kitchen as it is a bit small I really loved that the rooms have their own baths! Also, we enjoyed such a large space to sit and visit at the end of the day with the big table and two sofas. The wagon was a definite plus. As was the front porch swing. We had a great time!

The Paradise cottage was perfect for our family of six. We made good use of the kitchen and open floor plan on the first floor, and the large dining table was perfect for breakfast and game nights. The home had all the creature comforts we needed from cooking utensils and pots and pans in the kitchen to linens on the beds and in the bathrooms. The rooms were spacious and the screened in porch on the second floor master bedroom is beautiful. The house is exactly as pictured, so we knew what to expect. Thank you for hosting us!

A wonderful holiday home!

Most Relaxing Beach Vacation

Date of Stay:

Just got back from a wonderful beach vacation in Destin!. After much research we decided on Paradise Cottage--and glad we did. The house was very spacious and bright and there were many outdoor areas to also hangout on--swing and chairs on the front porch--patio with table and chairs off the kitchen--screened porch off the master bedroom--and a deck with sun and viewing on the third floor. The beach was a pleasant two minute walk. Restaurants and stores were all close by. It was an awesome neighborhood and area to walk and bike around! We would definitely stay here again.

Great house. Better than the pics and descriptions. We didn't want for a single thing. PERFECT!

Date of Stay:

Spotless clean, spacious and private for 3 couples and room for more, great outdoor porches, nice pool area, easy walk to beach, quiet and safe streets with sidewalks. Will definitely hope to rent this house again.

Great House...Great vacation

Date of Stay:

This house was even better than the description or the pictures! It was extremely clean and well maintained. All 8 of us enjoyed coming in after a day out and just relaxing in the large living room. And the master bedroom & bathroom was a dream! The house is on a quiet street with easy access to the beach & the pool. And very close to restaurants and other outdoor activities. The biggest problem we had was all the kids deciding which room they wanted to sleep in! We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

A Great Place to Stay!

Date of Stay:

This property was everything we wanted. We had a fantastic time staying here. It is very close to the beach, shopping and restaurants but secluded enough for privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and a/c, tv and appliances worked well. I would highly recommend this property for your next beach vacation.
