“I wanna take you down to Kokomo. We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow. That's where we wanna go, way down to Kokomo... Afternoon delight. Cocktails and moonlit nights." This iconic Beach Boys hit, describes the general ambiance that our Ocean Reef guests experience at Kokomo Kove in Destin, Florida. This intimate Crystal Beach vacation rental community is somewhat hidden away and is nestled beside a beautiful, tranquil coastal dune lake. However, it is also only one block from the beach, which is just a short leisurely stroll away.
Besides having a private romantic setting, the little Destin neighborhood itself also defines that heartwarming, Americana feel that makes you feel like you are on your way to visit Grandma. The white picket fences and vintage architecture inspires this vision and you can almost smell the gingerbread cookies baking in the oven. It certainly inspires you to sit down and have a cold glass of lemonade on a porch or your favorite frozen adult beverage!
We are pleased to be able to offer our Ocean Reef guests two choices here in rental homes named “Perry Winkle Palms”and “Isla Morada” Even the names of these homes are alluring.
