Beautiful home for rent directly from owners
Save $$$ renting this beautiful, three bedroom, two and a half bath, private home directly from the owners. Please call us at to discuss the rates. Our two-story home is located in the family-oriented Mainsail Beach Resort complex.

We are just yards from the beach without the normal hassles of high rise elevators, but with all the amenities of a complex (tennis courts, two full-size pools (one heated), two kiddie pools, hot tub, video game room, exercise room, shuffleboard and basketball court, as well as seasonal beach service. You drive your car right up to the front door under cover of a carport. Your children can play in the yard or swim in the heated pool just outside our back patio door.

The master bathroom has been recently renovated and all the floors have been replaced with beautiful hardwood and tile. We have one of the best equipped kitchens on the beach and love to cook when we are there ourselves. The bedrooms have new mattresses and there are four TV's and free Wifi. We love to rent our home to good families who will take great care of our home away from home for us.

Unique Benefits

What we love most about our Mainsail cottage is we have a home to ourselves with a carport and yard. We don't have to find a cart and wait for an elevator to carry in our luggage or groceries. With a home, we have enough room for everyone to enjoy themselves without feeling crowded. I love the large kitchen. Most condos have such small kitchens I hate to cook in them.

Why Kids Love It

Kids love the heated pool outside our back door and the large yard to play in.

All love to come to the Beach House

Why this property? Tony started going to Destin with friends every Spring Break in 1989. We started going a couple years later when Tricia was ready for a Spring Break in Destin. We loved Destin so much, we went back for vacation every summer. We stayed at Beach House, SeaScape, Surfside, and Edgewater, before staying in a Mainsail townhouse. Mainsail was by far our favorite resort community. Everyone was so friendly and the resort is very family oriented. One of the Mainsail cottages was for sale and we went to see it. We decided since we loved Destin so much we might as well buy a place and rent it out until we are ready to retire. It was a great decision! We love our home and we have been lucky enough to find wonderful families to rent our home and take great care of it for us. Now we love to come to Destin and bring all the grand kids.

Relaxing cottage

Cottage 23 is a wonderful place to vacation. It is conveniently located near the pool, but there isn’t a great deal of noise when you’re inside the cottage. There is so much room for entertaining, and the kitchen is the best equipped kitchen of all our vacation rentals. The master bathroom has been updated with an amazing shower! We used the fitness room which overlooks the ocean on rainy days, but nothing beats the beach which is a five minute walk from the cottage.

Great cottage for family beach vacation

This cottage was perfect for our family. A short walk from the beach (no roads to cross) and a heated pool right out the back door were enjoyed everyday while we were there. The grilling area by the pool had both gas and charcoal grills available. There is a balcony off one of the upstairs bedrooms that was nice to sit and drink coffee at in the mornings. I look forward to taking my family here again in the future.

We Love Mainsail!

This cottage was perfect for our family! We absolutely love the Mainsail community and all of it's ammenities! Private beach front, this cottage is right next to the pool, another pool on the grounds near the beach, workout room, tennis courts, and only a minute away from the Chick-fil-A and grocery store! What more could you need!? We arrive, park the car for the week and relax. Cottage 23 has everything you need right down to a waffle maker! My kids were set :) Beds are cozy, couch is comfy, and everything else you could need is not far! Owners were very prompt in replying to all emails and kept us up to date on all FL regulations while waiting for the state to reopen to travelers! Mainsail is our yearly beach stop, we hope to stay here again!

Feels like home

Stayed here for 2 months for second year in a row. Owners are very easy to work with, very quick response. Cottage 23 has 3 bedrooms with a large 1st floor master bedroom, large master bathroom with great walk in shower. Covered parking right outside your door. Well stocked kitchen, washer & dryer. Large living area with large flat screened tv. Covered patio. Cottage is right across from heated pool. Pool water is warm, can swim even on a chilly day. Gated complex, close to shopping and restaurants. Cottage is just a short walk from the ocean. Cottage feels very homey and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay.
