Description

This absolutely charming cottage is indeed on the beautiful bay and comes with three bedrooms with the ability to comfortably sleep up to eight carefree vacation guests. It has been completely renovated, beautifully furnished, and repainted. Renovations feature a new state-of-the-art kitchen, three luxury bathrooms, lighting fixtures, inviting bedrooms, skylights, draperies, and a long dock. It has a natural waterfront location in the Baypine residential enclave of the lavish, exclusively gated Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort.

Views from this spacious two-story "cottage" are fantastic since they feature stunning vistas of the bay, a pedestrian bridge that connects to a kid's paradise called Jolee Island, and the Sandestin Yacht Club Marina in the distance. The first floor of Bay Cottage includes open living, dining, kitchen areas, and two Guest Bedrooms. This space has a lovely look with multiple windows looking out upon the sensational scenery, including natural Saw Grass, waterfowl, and panoramic views. The living area includes a comfortable creamy white couch with a love seat and a pale blue lounge chair. A double glass door flanked by two wide windows leads out to the screened porch, which has upscale outdoor furnishings, including a round glass-topped table with four cushioned straw woven chairs as well as a hanging bench swing. You will enjoy the lovely views while sipping upon favorite drinks and tasty treats. A door leads to a deck with a grill and a long dock available to enjoy some fun fishing. A tropically inspired dining area inside sits off the open kitchen near a window that provides additional bay views. It includes six tall straw woven chairs around a rectangular hardwood table for charmed dining. The kitchen has a bright look with two skylights, white custom cabinetry with a matching island overlooking the living area, and brushed stainless steel appliances.

One of the Guest Bedrooms on this floor has attractive cottage-style furnishings with a queen-sized bed, a glass door that leads out to the screened porch, along with a full ensuite bath. A Bunk Room serves as the other guest quarters, which is perfect for kids since it has four twin beds and access to a full hall bath. The spacious Master Bedroom Suite encompasses the entire top floor. A king-sized bed faces double glass doors framed by two wide windows providing sensational views of the bay with access to a breezy open viewing deck. The luxurious ensuite private bath features dual vanities and a glass-walled walk-in shower adorned with white Carrera Marble.

This outstanding Sandestin location is less than a two-minute walk away from a neighborhood community swimming pool, and the beautiful beach is only about five minutes away by car - or take the beach tram! The enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf, which was inspired by architecture from the New Orleans French Quarter, is also a very short distance away. It includes wonderful restaurants, lively bars, specialty shops, family amusements, outdoor concerts, fun year-round festivals, and vibrant seasonal firework displays. The swank town center of Sandestin, known as Grand Boulevard, is also close by with additional dining establishments, fashion boutiques, galleries, a multiplex theater, a wine outlet, and a Publix grocery store.

Wonderful Place
Wondeful house with a private dock which our kids loved to fish off of. Close to a lot of various things and not too far from the beach. House was beautiful. Only downfall is only one parking spot.

Worth the rent.
Furnishings were above average. Every thing worked. Beds were a pleasure to sleep in. Hot outside but AC was adequate. Room enough for our eight people. Good location inside a gated community. Close to an upscale shopping center and recreational facilities.

This home was perfect for our family of 8!
We had never been to the Destin area and the location was great! It's in the Sandestin Resort property which has lots nearby amenities like: a marina, shuttles, shopping, restaurants, coffeeshop, biking, fishing, and pickleball to name a few. The home is just a few minutes drive from the beautiful Miramar Beach. We really enjoyed the private fishing dock on the property in the evenings with lots of fish and scenic views. The property owners were very attentive to any needs that we addressed. We will definitely be back! We highly recommend.

Is there an option for more than one parking spot?
Andrea M - Posted: 01/01/2022

Answer:

Bay Cottage is allotted parking for one vehicle only. If additional parking is needed you can find options for overnight parking here.

Is this property dog friendly?
Terry D - Posted: 01/11/2022

Answer:

We love our "fur babies" at Ocean Reef.  Unfortunately, the Bay Cottage doesn't allow for pets.  We do have select pet friendly properties to choose from.  Here is a link to them: Pet friendly properties
Are you able to park a boat at the dock?
Chricat G - Posted: 02/15/2022

Answer:

The dock at Bay Cottage cannot accommodate a boat due to the waters depth and the Jolee Island bridge. This is, however, a great spot to go paddleboarding or kayaking and try your luck at fishing!

Am I able to rent a golf cart, crib, and high chair at this location?
Jillian S - Posted: 02/15/2022

Answer:

Golf cart rentals are prohibited on Sandestin Resort, but you are welcome to rent a crib and high chair. In fact, we have partnered with some of the best local companies which provide discounts to Ocean Reef guests. Shop discounted crib and high chair rentals here!

Is the community pool heated? Is it zero entry?
Jillian S - Posted: 02/15/2022

Answer:

Yes and yes! The zero-entry community pool is typically heated in the fall and winter months.

Are beach towels provided?
Suzie W - Posted: 03/22/2024

Answer:

We provide linens and sheets for the beds, bath towels, and washcloths. You will want to bring your own beach towels, as we do not provide them. Our properties are furnished with enough disposable goods to get you started; this includes trash bags, paper towels, toilet tissue, dishwashing detergent, and bar soap. Our kitchens feature the basic necessities, such as a k-cup coffee maker, toaster, blender, silverware, and dishes. You may also want to pack hair dryers, additional disposable goods, and specialty kitchen items such as spices, aluminum foil, sandwich bags, etc.

Here is a helpful video to ensure that you are fully equipped for the beach!
