About This Listing
In all the hustle and bustle of Destin it is easy to get sucked into the tourist cycle of Harbor Walk, beach, rise and repeat. Our place is only one block away from the finest beach in Destin but allows guests to escape the hotel madness to relax when desired but easily hit the beach, restaurants, and bars within minutes.
Guests will have their own bedroom and bathroom. The main living area and kitchen will be shared with the owners. Feel free to help yourself to an amazing cup of coffee (I'll admit it…we're coffee snobs coming from Seattle) or anything else found in the fridge or pantry.
We spend most of our time in the main living area but guests should feel free to come converse at their leisure. We can be as involved with recommendations/tips as you'd like or we can be a fly on the wall and let you enjoy your vacay in peace…it's totally your choice.
Our place is in a great neighborhood. It is relatively quiet 99.99% of the time but all the neighbors are extremely friendly and a few waves as you pass by is all but guaranteed. My wife and I are in our late 20's yet get along with everyone swimmingly.
Destin public transit is all but non existent. We have a relatively large driveway and guests will have a side of the driveway to park. We are a block from Crystal Beach State Park and about 5 miles from the main tourist drag. We are about a 20 minute drive from VPS airport and about an hour from Pensacola.
We have an extremely well behaved black Lab named Turbo so guests should be dog friendly. Throw him his toy a few times and you'll have a friend for life.
Wonderful! Sean and Kate's beach home was perfect for a night stay to attend a wedding in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Kate made us feel extremely welcome along with her friendly dog, Turbo. My pug, Beauty, also was welcomed with a treat! If I were to visit Destin or surrounding areas again- I would not hesitate to book Sean and Kate again. The house was very clean and put together. Our stay was too short, but I could tell that there were plenty of great conversations to be had. Thank you Sean and Kate for providing the perfect place to stay for our short stay!
Great location. Helpful. Sean and Turbo. Comfy bed (website hidden). Own bathroom. Spacious room. Sean went out his way. To really help. Thank you. Highly recommend place.
This was our first airbnb experience, and it was perfect! Sean and Kate are super friendly and very gracious hosts, and Turbo is the sweetest dog. They all made us feel right at home. The space was clean, comfortable, and exactly as pictured, and it was so nice to be within such short walking distance of the beach. Sean and Kate gave us great restaurant recommendations, and their house is so convenient to all of it. The trip couldn't have been better - we hope to be back soon!
As first time users of Airbnb, we weren't really sure what to expect when we arrived at Sean and Kate's house, but once we were greeted at the door by Kate and Turbo (with toy at the ready) we realized just how wise of a decision we had made. It was the best last day we could have had on spring break!
We had an awesome time staying at Sean and Kate's place in Destin! The room was great, and the bed was very comfortable. They gave great recommendations on restaurants and bars to choose from! It's a true five minute walk to the beach! They offered us chairs and an umbrella which were definitely needed at the beach. Sean and Kate are an energetic and fun couple; they even invited me to yoga on the beach! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again!
Our stay in Destin was perfect as always! We have been coming to Destin for 15+ years and we have to say that this was one of the most wonderful stays we have ever had. Kate was extremely welcoming and Turbo was the best!! Sean was out of town but we look forward to meeting him as well the next time we are in town. We would highly recommend their home to anyone looking for a cozy home with great people, an awesome dog, and walking distance to the beach!
Sean and Kate were super welcoming and great hosts. It was really nice meeting them. The house was cozy, the room and bath comfortable, and playing with Turbo was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay at their house and look forward to coming back soon!
About the Host, Sean And Kate
We are originally from Denver, Colorado but currently live in Destin, FL. We enjoy traveling, rock climbing, skiing, basically anything outdoors. Sean is a pilot in the Air Force and Kate is currently in grad school to become a speech therapist. After an initial sanity check, we will try anything once and seek out adventures that push our limits both physically and mentally. We love experiencing new cultures and getting to know new people so we were stoked when we found out about AirBnB.
