excellent home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Destin Gentle Breeze in June 2015 and loved it! The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had 9 people ( 4 were kids) and we had plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all of our meals. The screened in porch was very nice and the neighborhood was great. The short walk to the beach was nice. With the 4 kids we decided to drive to the pool and park there and then walk to the beach. It was more convenient that way:) The area was great and we really enjoyed Destin. The owners were very easy to work with and even called to check on us. We would definitely recommend this house!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage,& the children loved that there was board games there for when it rained & they couldn't go to the beach or pool. The walk to the beach wasn't that bad & the beach was beautiful with very helpful attendants. I would recommend this property to anyone who has a large family. We only had one problem,some neighbors complained once about the noise but I don't even remember being loud at all. The older kids were at the beach until after ten & we had the younger ones at the pool until 9:30 but it's all good because the owner was very understanding and i really like her!!!

Beautiful Home, Excellent Value!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly as described. The location and amenities were fantastic. Our family came down for the wedding of my daughter, and had ample room for a cental gathering place. It was clean and well maintained, and I was proud to invite everyone back to the cottage for after ceremony visits. Each person was impressed with the setting and especially the wrap around screened in porch. It was perfect. Several guests came from a very upscale resort down the street and were jealous.

The owner was easy to get ahold of, answered countless questions before our arrival and responded to emails and text promptly. While on the property we contacted her with questions and she graciously responded. She exceeded all of my expectations. I would recommend this property to everyone who wants to visit Destin. Exceptional experience!

Long Term Report

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed out stay at Gentle Breeze on five separate occasions over four years. We are returning again in May 2011. The cottage is well-maintained with excellent housekeeping and is beautifully and tastefully decorated. The amenities are truly as described and everything is on-hand to create a home-away-from home. The cottage feels exactly like a home when you walk in the front door - not at all like a rental. The owners apparently strive for this effect and were very successful creating it.

Wi-Fi was added last year which helped cut back on our regular trips to the Panera at Destin Commons. There is always a generous supply of towels and linen and toiletries. The A/C is very quiet as well as efficient as are the washer & dryer. Cable offers a good selection of local, regional and national feeds.

The beach is a ten minute walk at best or driving is easy too with ample space always available in the main Maravilla parking area. The beach attendants know their job and are both industrious and courteous. Umbrellas and chairs are clean and well-maintained. There is also a convenient shower feature as you exit the beach. The stretch of beach access belonging to Maravilla is unquestionably one of the very best in the Destin area.

We have not used either pool or the tennis courts. There is a gym and its schedule coincides with leasing office hours if my memory is correct. After-hour access may be possible - check.

Restaurants of every type and price range from white table cloth to fast food are nearby in either direction. Maravilla is a gated community with key-pad access. You can enter/leave on either 98/30 (Emerald Coast Parkway) or Old Highway 98 along the Gulf coast both exits being very convenient. There are food and drug stores nearby including Publix and a Wal-Mart Super Center. The Silver Sands Mall with numerous outlet stores is not to be missed. Retail stores of every description lines both sides of 98.

Walking along Old Highway 98 is a nice diversion and seems to be safe at all hours. It is rare to find any car or motorcycle speeding on this road. Pedestrians in crosswalks are respected too. The sunsets from the beach should not be missed. Early risers are regularly treated to dolphins and other sea life moving along the shoreline.

If you are planning a trip to Destin you should definitely consider Gentle Breeze. The accompanying photos for the listing are current and reflect exactly what you will see and enjoy.
