Wonderful as always.

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers of Ron and Michelle. You couldn't ask for a better condo than theirs. Wonderful view, quiet complex, and all the comforts of home. This was our 21 year old son's first trip to the gulf and he had a blast. We plan on booking again for next year.

We enjoyed our stay at sunset cottages very much. It was perfect for our family of 6. The daily beach service made our time at the beach each day comfortable even on the hottest days. We loved having the activities of Destin so close. We would definitely stay here again. Ron and Michelle were wonderful and easy to work with. We highly recommend this place!

Overdue Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation here at Sunset Cottages. Within 5 minutes of the beach. There is a building between you and the beach (which was a little disappointing) but we still had a side view of the ocean. Very nice, clean place with all you need to make for a great vacation. We have 4 boys between 21 and 13. Was just a little crowded at times and seemed like someone was always in the bathroom lol guess thats why we have 3 bathrooms at our house. Overall, no complaints and Michelle was great to do business with.

Thank You!

Beautiful and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! It is not like going on vacation with family in a yucky hotel room. It is really clean and has a ton of amenities that make it more like a vacation home. The view is amazing and we often seen beautiful dolphins right from the balcony! The kids would get soooo excited!!! They talk about the dolphins all the time even months after. I love having the full kitchen and it helped a lot! There is so much to do not only at the beach but in the area. I cant wait to go back!!! Thank you for such an amazing trip and stay!!!
