Starfish

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 10, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

136 Beach Retreat Place Destin, FL 32550 United States

'Starfish' is a cute beach cottage with an open floor plan and a wraparound, second-floor balcony steps to the beach! It is furnished nicely and decorated with a designer's touch! Granite counters, upgraded Legacy white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Eighteen-inch tile throughout the living area, kitchen, and bathrooms. Other features include nine to ten foot ceilings and sound-proof insulation between the floors. FREE Wireless high speed internet is provided! LCD Flat Screen TVs in the living room, and both master bedrooms! Blu Ray DVD players too!

Beach Retreat is a gated community with only 24 cottages just across the street from the beach. It is a very short walk to a private beach access with over 300 feet of beach frontage! The neighborhood has brick paver streets lined with colorful Florida Cottages, professional landscaping, and a huge 3000-square-foot pool with a club house, sun deck, and barbecue grills! Conveniently located to Destin Commons Mall and all other activities! Silver Sands Outlet Mall is close too!

Sleeps up to 10 with two king-size beds, four bunk beds (two twins and two full-size beds), and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Our bunks are designed for children under 100 pounds. We have space for 2 vehicles. An extra one may be parked at the Clubhouse for an extra $10 per day fee.

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep-sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes emerald green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!'

Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports. Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes twice to three times a year, event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you will want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

    a guest from Columbia, Missouri recommends this vacation rental

    LOVED the location! We have stayed in a different house in the same complex before so we knew how awesome this location was and was excited to find this house at such a good price!
    There was 4 adults and 6 kids total and the house had plenty of room for all of us. The pool is a great size and was never to full, beach access is perfect and the walk is super short which is great for someone with a 1 year old who has to be held. The management time was great to deal with. I would rent this home again in a heartbeat, the only downside was it needs new carpet badly! There where a lot of stains on it and it could use some new living room furniture but honestly most vacations home could! None of the negatives would keep from renting again though so thanks for allowing us to stay and have a great vacation at Starfish!

    a guest from Omaha, NE recommends this vacation rental

    We had an excellent stay at this wonderful home. About 200 yards to the beach and 59 yards to the pool. This home is in a very well kept gated community and in close proximity to great shopping and restaurants and grocery stores. We definitely will stay here again. No ocean view from this home but the beach is so close.

    • Manager Responded on 2/19/2017

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is nice with a great location close to everything in Destin and the private beach access is such an easy walk!

    Jenny C from Central City, KY recommends this vacation rental

    Great stay except for the fact that we had to leave the house by 9 a.m. Would rather be able to get into the room an hour later than to have to get up that early on vacation.

    • Manager Responded on 10/20/2016

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! The check out time is at 9am so that we can get it ready for the next group. It is flexible in the off season but when someone is coming in, we have to get it ready!

    Keith S from Mansfield, Ohio recommends this vacation rental

    We had a nice time. The location is convenient with an easy walk to the beach and pool. It was a short drive to groceries, restaurants and shopping. The development is very attractive. Starfish is not brand new, and probably ready for some updates to furniture, etc. but it served our needs very well. We had two small children with us who still nap during the day. Having a private home instead of a condo/apartment gave us more privacy and quiet when we needed it.

    • Manager Responded on 10/9/2016

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is a nice home very close to the beach with good amenities. The location can't be beat either!

    a guest from Keller, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Overall it was very good. Great floor plan. My only complaint is the grill situation. It's a very long walk. Trying to carry everything over that distance is a little rediculas.

    • Manager Responded on 7/18/2016

      Glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is a great floor plan with nice upgrades and the best location! The grills are over by the pool, not very far! That is an HOA requirement that they not be at the homes.

    DENICE W from Paducah, KY recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I along with our kids shared this home with my brother and his wife and children and it was WONDERFUL! Plenty of space, beautiful home, close to beach, shopping and restaurants were just a short drive away. I can not say enough about how awesome this place was. The ONLY thing I can think of that was not perfect is the living room furniture could have been a little more comfortable, but who wants to sit around when you are at this beautiful location! LOVED it, will definitely be back!

    • Manager Responded on 10/21/2015

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is a super nice cottage with plenty of room very close to the beach! Nice, smaller community with only 24 cottages in a gated neighborhood close to all Destin activities!

    a guest from Clarendon Hills, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time! The house was very nice, good location to a great beach, the home was well maintained and the community pool was a good size for spending time there. I felt very safe there as well. Easy access with the key code entry. Very nice for a beach vacation. The kitchen was a little bare bones, plastic cubs would have been nice for the kids but it was fine for the meals we had at home.

    • Manager Responded on 8/16/2015

      So glad you enjoyed Starfish! It is a cute and very nice cottage so close to the beach. The gated neighborhood makes it private and quiet yet close to everything. Will check out the kitchen and get what is needed going forward.

    Theresa L from Maryland Heights, MO recommends this vacation rental

    We have been coming to Destin for the past 14 years and would come back to this complex. Each year we try a new location. We really enjoyed the unit and its short walk to the beach. The pool and hot tub are centrally located. The hot tub was not the cleanest by the end of the day (as kids were using it for the pool).. but the complex is really kid friendly. Really enjoyed the privacy of a gated community. No golf carts were running in the complex throughout the evening. The only problem we encountered is that the unit did not have beach service and we had brought our own umbrellas/beach chairs. It was sometimes challenging with the beach service as some people think they own the beach and would get upset that we were setting up beside them. If you do purchase the beach service negotiate with the person setting up. We overheard he knocked off prices to several people. We would recommend that you try this unit.

    • Manager Responded on 7/2/2015

      So glad you enjoyed your stay at Starfish! It is a nice and very cute cottage very close to the beach! Nice amenities too! The pool area is so refreshing! The beach chairs are not expensive and provided for a fee by the vendor on the beach.

    First,very helpful and friendly staff in the CW office.
    Second,the location of Starfish is ideal - swimming pool 50 yards away;the pristine beach and aquamarine sea 100 yards.
    Third,great access to a wide variety of restaurants and shops.
    All in all,a great vacation in a great location.
