Tucked away in a beautiful Destin community, lies Gulfside Cottage. Perfectly positioned a short stroll away from the Gulf of Mexico and right across from some of the best shopping opportunities at Silver Sands Premium Outlets, you couldn’t ask for a better spot than Gulfside Cottage! This Destin, Florida vacation home offers three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms for 9 guests, as well as access to community amenities at Gulfside Cottages.

When you enter the home’s first floor, you’re greeted by charming, coastal décor that’ll have you dreaming of the beach in no time. Shiplap, pastel-yellow walls and cool hardwood floors invoke a sense of relaxation throughout the room. Whip up a meal in your fully equipped kitchen, accented by a spacious breakfast bar and granite countertops. A half bathroom is also located right off the living room.

Then make your way up to the second floor for the three bedrooms. The master bedroom features access to a private balcony overlooking the beautiful community. The suite also comes complete with a private bathroom, outfitted with a dual-vanity. The second and third bedrooms both share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

Meanwhile, enjoy direct access to the beach at the end of Open Gulf Street, located just a quick four-minute walk away. For days not spent on our famous sugar-white sands, Gulfside Cottages offers a community pool perfect for soaking up some sun all day long. Just grab your favorite book and some sunscreen and get to relaxing!
