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.
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!
Sean and Kate were the perfect hosts, though we weren't able to meet them. This was better than any private hotel as we had the comfort of the whole house: kitchen, private bathroom, laundry, bicycles... We couldn't have asked for more.
The neighborhood is quiet and away from the manic tourist strip but so close to the pretty beach and ocean. Their suggestions for where to eat and bike ride were great and we took advantage of it all.
We laughed at all the tourists we saw filing in and out of their condos and fancy expensive resorts, and loved playing locals.
The house was clean, well equipped, had plenty of space,and while they invited us to eat what was in the fridge or cupboards we just made room for our groceries (save for the blueberries that were going to go off so they went to good use in their awesome Vitamix ;) Thanks, guys! We had a great time and sorely missed you and Turbo.
Sean and Kate were super welcoming and we had a great time chatting with them! The neighborhood was quiet and a quick walk to the beach. The bedroom was quiet and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Sean let us use the gym and weights in his garage which was a huge plus. He also made us a fantastic cup of coffee in the morning!
Great place to stay! Sean and Kate were really nice, awesome people and their house was indeed only one block away from the beach. We had a blast! Highly recommended!
I had an amazing time at Kate's and Sean's place. They are the nicest people, we actually got to hang out for drinks for a little while. Super open and enthusiastic, with exciting careers. The room and bathroom are extremely clean, the house is just one block from the beach and the main road is also right there, so getting there is quite easy also. All in all a perfect trip. Also, Turbo for president.
Sean & Kate were great hosts! They had no issues with our check-in and check-out times and had no issues with our random coming and going (we were in town for a wedding). The room and bathroom were very clean and as-described. My wife and I loved their (email hidden)y a few minutes' walk to the beach! Highly recommend!
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.
