traveler reviews for this destin cottage rental

Spring Break 2014

Review submitted: April 14, 2014   Date of arrival: March 29, 2014

We often stay in Cottage Retreat, but this was our first time in Villa Bella. It was lovely. The owners have done a wonderful job supplying the things you need to be comfortable and to enjoy your stay. It is nicely decorated, the furniture is comfortable, and it is well maintained. Mike and Kathy are the perfect rental agents. They are responsive to any need or request and are always pleasant and efficient. We don't rent through anyone else when we are in Destin. Our BIG family Spring Break was a great success!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Great experience

Review submitted: June 18, 2013   Date of arrival: June 9, 2013

In short, we had a great experience with our rental in Miramar Beach. The property description was accurate and we found the house to actually be in better condition then we expected. The house was plenty big enough for our party of 9. The owner/property manager was very easy to work with and promptly answered any phone calls, texts, or emails that we sent her.

I had never been to the Destin area before and my wife found this property online. I was a little apprehensive about the area. I found the area to be awesome. The property is located east of the main Destin area and it is absolutely great. The beach was perfect and the private beach service was much appreciated.

In short, we would recommend this property to anyone who wants to take their family or children to the beach.
