Cottage Retreat is a gated community within the beautiful Miramar Beach area. The neighborhood has gated beach access just across Scenic Hwy 98. Amenities include a seasonally heated community pool, hot tub, fitness center, and grilling area! Cottage Retreat shares amenities with Beach Retreat condos nearby. This idyllic location is a short distance from several beach front restaurants and only a few miles from Destin Commons and Silver Sands! This beautiful location and wonderful amenities inspire families to frequently return to Cottage Retreat every year!

Area Attractions:

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants.

All the excitement of Destin is just minutes away: choice of water-sports, golf, amusement parks, and outlet shopping.  One glimpse of Destin beaches and you're hooked. It must be the wide, white beaches and the famous emerald waters. Not to mention the fabulous fishing, the world's most beautiful beaches, addictive seafood and the full array of activities for kids of all ages and more fun to be found in Destin.

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

Perfect Stay - This home was the perfect stay for our group of friends. We all had adequate space to hang out as well as individual space. The home was beautiful and the location was absolutely perfect!

- Very nice house (cottage) in a great spot. Very quiet at night. Short walk to the beach. The pool and hot tub were nice as well. Within walking distance of breakfast and dinner spots. Great spot for families or couples!

Nice house and great location - This house was great for our family vacation. We all loved it. This house was really nice, clean, with more than enough towels needed, and I loved that everything was close by. The property manager always responded quickly with whatever questions I had. Loved it!

- Great location. Proximity to the beach was fantastic. Plenty of beach toys were available for guest. If renting a golf cart be sure to reserve an extra parking space ahead of time. We weren't told that there wouldn't be extra parking available and received a big orange sticker on the windshield as a warning. Had to wait 24 hours to receive the extra paid parking space. Gated area for home is very quiet, everyone is very friendly.

- We had a great week staying at a little piece of heaven ! Location was 10/10 right across from the beach. Included private beach access but do be aware that you still have to pay for chairs and umbrella ( $40 for 2) Was nice to use the community pool just a few steps away as well ! House was beautiful along with the other cottages nearby. We had great neighbors our entire stay. I will say that the house wasn’t as clean as I expected. Some big staining on carpets and towels provided. Disappointed that basic necessities weren’t provided such as Salt and Pepper , extra toilet paper and paper towels.

Wonderful break - We had a great week. The house was perfect for our group. The location was nice and beach access was a short walk. Plus the beach was private and not nearly as crowded as other beach areas. The rental company responded quickly to any of questions before and during our stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend this property.
