Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 9 Sleeps

Brand new sleeper sofa and artwork in living room! New carpet and king-sized bed and bedding in master bedroom! New ceramic tile in the living area! New twin over full bunk bed with a trundle (sleeps 4) in second children's bedroom!

Picture your Destin vacation beginning outside on the front porch or

rear deck with a dreamy sunrise, and with the anticipation of your

heavenly (and probably much needed) vacation. This charming home is

in the quaint neighborhood of Crystal Beach, known for its seaside-

styled cottages and picket fences, and has the look and feel of the

sea. All at your fingertips are the most beautiful beaches in the

world, by way of the beach access that is only two short blocks

away. (Tip: There is also an exquisite gulf-front restaurant at

the same location!)

Warm tropical colors welcome you into the wide-open great room and

kitchen, and both the front porch and back deck are perfect for

enjoying the lush Florida landscape and sea breezes. With 3

bedrooms and 2 full baths, this cottage has a spacious family room

with vaulted ceilings and new ceramic tile. It has been freshly painted

inside and has new allitional landscaping outside. Cable TV is

available, in all 3 bedrooms and living area, with 70 channels, as

well as 2 new dvd-vcr players and 2 vcr's, with an assortment of

complimentary movies for you to view. Wireless, high-speed Internet

is also available! And to top it all, our rental rates are highly

competitive! The interior decor is tastefully furnished the way we

would want it to be if we were vactioning there, because we want you

to come back, year after year, to your place in Paradise!

After a day soaking in the sun at the beach, cool off in your own

private pool, or take in the many other amenities located two short

blocks from our cottage, such as the renowned Destin Commons, with

its 75 plus stores, including Bass Pro Shops, Ann Taylor,

Abercrombie, the magnificent Rave Motion Picture theater, and the

Publix grocery store, to name but a few. If golfing is your "bag",

treat yourself to any of the 15 finest golf courses available, such

as Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay, 4 courses in Sandestin, and Camp


The Destin Harbor is minutes away for deep sea fishing, snorkeling,

boating and jet-skiing. The harbor is your gateway to the emerald

green waters of the Gulf of Mexico! And how about the many fine

eateries serving up their fresh catch of the day (many are withing

walking distance from our cottage). Close by are Big Kahuna's

Waterpark, Sandestin Resort, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, The Track,

and the Gulfarium. Good times will be had by the whole family!

When we confirm your stay, I can email you maps of Destin, Ft.

Walton Beach, and the South Walton Beach areas. These show you

locations of the many restaurants, amenities and points of interest.

Need help or directions? I lived in Destin for many years and can

probably answer your questions!

We had a great time at Windsong! We went shopping, ate at great restaurants, and fished. Your beach home was warm and cozy, and we didn't want to go home! Thank you Terri!

awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5
This makes our 2nd stay at Windsong and as usual we LOVED it!!! Its a nice cozy home with anything you could need for a home away from home. Always nice to have somewhere to get away and still feel as if you are in your own place. Conveniently located close to many restaurants and a mall and only a 2 block beautiful walk to the beach. Also a great place to take your dog (we took ours the 1st time we stayed and he felt right at home also). Can't say enough about this wonderful home and its owner, Terri

Great location /great house

  • 5 of 5
After staying in Destin for a week, we decided to stay for an extra week. ( don't be surprised if you do the same).
I started looking for another house to rent when I saw this charming Bungalow. Luckily it was less than 2 blocks from our first rental.
Terri called back immediately after I left her a voice mail , she was so accommodating to us , allowing us early access so we could transfer food from one house to the other. The walk to the beach is approx 3 blocks, and mostly shaded which was wonderful, especially with little ones.
The layout of the house is open which I loved, because I never felt out of the action while in the kitchen. The house was well equipped , clean and most of all had a very homey feel and Terri was awesome to work with. I have no doubt we'll be back and highly recommend this rental to either a couple looking to get away or a family with kids like ourselves ( 5) from 18-5.
After 13 years of vacationing in Destin, I got my first two weeks thanks to Terri and her kindness .!!
Wish I was there right now. !
Hope to see you sooner than later Terri!!
Have a great summer.

Ps. As I said, I've been coming to Deatin for 13 years, have used just about every rental co. Without a doubt , VRBO or owned and managed by owner is the way to go.

I was traveling with a group of friends and am so happy that we stayed at Windsong by the Sea!! We had a great time the house is only a couple blocks from the beach and with in walking distance of several restaurants. The owner was very helpful and wonderful to work with. The property is clean and well kept. We did several large group dinners over the week and the kitchen had everything that we needed we also enjoyed the pool and was thankful to have it when a few of the days a little cool to be at the beach. I would definitely want to stay here again and recommend it to anyone going to Destin.

Windsong by the Sea was wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We were first time renters and Terry made everything easy. All questions were answered and upon arrival we were thrilled to find the house ready and waiting. It was clean and felt like home. The week we were there was such fun and Windsong by the Sea was perfect. So perfect that we are returning again this year.
