Less Then One Block From the Beach!!! This beautifully designed custom cottage home is located in Crystal beach has more upgrades than you can imagine. You will enjoy all the comforts of home as well as the beach less then a block from your front door and in the opposite direction lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance as well!

HUGE Covered Porches in the Front and Back of the Home, In Ground Pool, and Stacking Glass Doors that to the Covered Back Porch overlooking the Pool.

There is parking for 4 vehicles and a large fenced in back yard to enjoy.

Our Community: Crystal Beach promotes cottages, rather then high rises, to capture the Old Florida Community feeling. We suggest walking to the corner Bistro ( Camille's ), sit on the veranda, read the paper and enjoy a relaxing breakfast and cup of coffee while watching the morning joggers pass by.

While at the beach, try one of their smoothies or return in the evening for some of the finest Sushi or seafood in Destin. There are also many beautiful golf courses within 5 miles of your vacation home. You will also enjoy Dolphin watching, jogging and just sitting at the beach to soak in the beauty of the emerald waters as well as the spectacular sunsets. If you enjoy shopping then you will be able to shop till you drop! Destin Commons is only 2 minutes away

or you can find several treasures at the Silver Sands outlet mall. It is billed as the worlds largest Designer Outlet! And please take time to explore Hwy 30A with all of their quaint shops as well as the shops of San Destin

What to do besides enjoy our wonderful beach...: Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices. Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding. We are a short 2-5 mile drive to the Silver Sands mall to the West, or luxury shopping at Destin Commons to the East. Kenny D's, The Crab Trap, and Pompano Joe's are all within walking distance to Cayenne Cottage. We encourage you to leave menus of your favorite restaurants when you come. For evening entertainment, Destin is known for some wonderfully upscale eateries, as well as your regular fare. Friendly night life and nearby state of the art movie theater.great shopping can be found at the Destin Commons outdoor mall. Enjoy such great stores as Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic, Belk, Books-A-Million & Maui Nix Surf Shop to rattle off a few. Stop for a bite to eat at the Hard Rock Café, Panera Bread, Tony’s Ristorante or Sushi Siam.

More than just shopping : The Destin Commons Center Plaza offers a soft-play kids playground and a 49-head pop fountain. Community activities and entertainment are held through the year at Destin Commons . Rave Motion Pictures is also housed at Destin Commons.

Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resorts offers wonderful dining and specialty stores as well as great festivals & events that are held at the Market Shops Green or the Center Plaza within the Village.

Crew-at-the-beach, Sunglass Hut, & Tommy Bahama's Emporium as well as great dining at Tommy Bahama’s , Fleming’s, Cantina Laredo (If you dine here sit outside to enjoy the fountain!) & Mitchell’s Fish Market.

Great experience

This house is really worth the money. The master bedroom and bathroom is amazing. And the back yard was a hit with the kids. Will definitely be staying here again

Perfect beach accommodation for our family

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. The rental was large, clean, and sized right for our family of six adults and three small children. We especially enjoyed having both a nice pool and backyard, even though we were walking distance to the beach. We also appreciated being walking distance to commercial businesses. The rental was exactly as advertised and captured by photos. We have already booked the unit for next year, and would recommend it to our friends.

Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the 4th of July week. It is one amazing house! The pool was nice and refreshing to come home too after a day at the beach. We will definitely rent this house again in the future!

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at the 3 Little Birds. We were close to the beach and to shopping centers. We had 6 adults and two very small children and we had plenty of room. We have been to Destin three times and this is our first time renting 3 Little Birds. Of the three different rentals we have experienced this is by far the best one for our family. We made great use of the pool and it was great for the children to have the walk in steps. Kathy was good to attend to whatever needs we had.

Great, great stay for us!

  • 5 of 5

Great, great stay for us! We appreciated that the

pictures/info online were exactly as we found the

place to be when we arrived. Location to beach was

just as anticipated - a short, easy walk down a

sidewalk (passing 4-6 houses, then Camille's

Restaurant) and then across a street to a public

beach access entry point. House was clean -

bathrooms, kitchen - everything! And it was

decorated so well - updated, fresh colors and decor

with very tasteful hints of a beach theme sprinkled

throughout the house. We had a family of 4 and

family of 5. Plenty of room for the 9 of us without

feeling like we were "on top of each other." The

private pool was really nice for our 2 families. Great

location to beach, to restaurants, etc. A good

balance of feeling "in it" but also quiet w/ homes vs.

condos in that area. This was our first time to

Destin - can't beat those beaches!! We'll be back!!
