Fabulous!!! We will be back!

This cute little house was amazing. It was perfect for my family of 6. (I wouldn't recommend more). The pool is medium size and was fun for everyone. The golf card took us everywhere we wanted to go. The house was very well stocked. We have stayed at a different house for the last 8 years and this is the first house we will probably go back to. The owners have gone above and beyond to make sure the families have everything they could possible need. I would highly recommend this house to anyone with a small family.

Perfect Destin Retreat

June 15, 2014

Completely outfitted home with perfect amenities. The house was very clean, comfortable, and a wonderful seaside retreat. The golf cart was fun and handy for quick rides to the beach, and the backyard pool was a huge hit with our kids. We slept like babies in the comfortable beds with high-thread-count sheets, and the neighborhood was quiet. Unlike most vacations, noise was not a factor, which allowed us to sleep in as late as we wanted. And the fully-fenced yard allowed our small dog to enjoy the outdoors when we were outside, too. The nearby shopping and eateries rounded out this stellar vacation. Even though our drive was a long one, we would do it again in a heartbeat if we could stay at Castaway Cottage. Perfect vacaton!

Fantastic place! Can't say enough about this great cottage-we lacked for nothing. Your place has it all-decor, amenities and location. Our two small dogs loved the fenced in yard & great sidewalks for long walks. We loved the private pool for relaxing after the beach. The golf cart was great for getting to the beach too! We so enjoyed the convenience to Publix, Fresh Market, Walmart and Destin Commons. Your location is great! The kitchen is outfitted with everything we needed-stayed in one night & made spaghetti & grilled steaks from Fresh Market as well. You have added many special touches such as the robes, extra pillows, bicycles, beach chairs and pool towels-very thoughtful! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay-we will be back to Castaway Cottage!

Owner's reply:

Ms Pam, we are so glad you enjoyed Castaway and can't wait for you to come back!

Fantastic Owners and wonderful vacation rental

Patty was truly helpful and accommodating in our stay. They have thought of everything and made our stay wonderful. The house has everything that we needed along with a wonderful pool and only 2 blocks from the beach. The shopping and restaurants were also extremely close by. Best compliment I can give is that we will be back!

Thank you Paul, we appreciate you and we would love for you to be our guest again in our Destin Beach House, Castaway Cottage!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Patty, I just want you to know how much we really
did enjoy our vacation. If I only had one word to
describe your Castaway Cottage in Destin Florida,
it would be "fantabulous"...if there is such a word.
We were so impressed, from the very first time we
entered this adorable place with all the superior
comfy and cozy furnishings. You have also given
a lot of consideration when decorating to choosing
so many unique items adding to the character of
this place. It was really appreciated to see how
extensively equipped the kitchen was and also to
see all of the pool and beach items for our use.
I must say...arriving late in the day after a very
lengthy see frosted glasses and beer
mugs in the freezer was indeed a very welcome

An added bonus for us, was to find out we were
located in a community of quaint houses where
streets were lined with white picket fences and
yet within only a couple of blocks of the beach.
Also shopping and many restaurants were nearby.

We were sorry to see our vacation come to an
end but we're looking forward to returning to the
Castaway Cottage and all of it's charm next year.

This was a most enjoyable week just a home away from home. The house was all newly furnished and decorated. It looks exactly like the pictures. This was a real find. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook. It's so close to the beach you can walk if you want to.. A beautiful well kept neighborhood, quite and peaceful and just 2 blocks away from anything you could need, restaurants shopping centers, drug stores. We look forward to coming here again.
