Come home and relax on the oversized covered porches with fans that surround the house and enjoy the beach breezes. Believe it or not... in the Summer, you can listen for the music of the ice cream truck! Just a three minute walk to rent bikes for the family, get a cup of fresh coffee across the street, go shopping, or eat a delicious meal at Camille's or any of the fantastic restaurants in the neighborhood.

Great location to the beach lovely home
by Joe Phillips
We had a great time here. House was very clean master bedroom shower was amazing. The layout of the house was very nice. It was only a short walk to the beach. Maybe 3 min about 1 block. Walk right out the backyard then it’s a straight shot to the beach. We are already looking forward to staying here again
A beautiful house! Fell in love with both the interior and exterior. Would purchase if possible
by Elmer Cabrera
Definetly will be staying here again next year. Out of all the houses this is the one that brought my attention and now I know why.. it’s simply beautiful and did not have problems at all. Booking was easy and the Kitchen was well stocked. Can’t wait for next year.. gonna miss La Dolce Vita!

Beautiful home, well equipped, good location
by Anne Risk
Just stayed at this beautiful home for the past week. The home has everything you could need. Porches are lovely. We used the community pool often as we have young kids and it was never crowded. We were often the only ones there. Close walk to the beautiful white sand beach as well. Thanks for a great vacation!
Beautiful spot. Nice short walk to the beach

Great location, beautiful inside & out
by Christopher Fritts
We had a great time in our stay at La Dolce Vita. It's approximately a five minute walk to the beach and the road at the rear of the house is parallel with public beach access. The home was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Linsey was easy to work with and was helpful with any request. I would highly recommend this house. Can't wait to return next year...
by Rebecca Villanueva
We absolutely loved out time at La Dolce Vita! It is everything that the pictures show it to be. Charming and comfortable; it is designed to be beautiful all the while being comfortable and endearing. There were six of us two adults and 4 young adults 19-20. It allows for privacy and enjoying time together. It is literally 3-4 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Destin. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to anyone going to Destin! Thank you!
by Lisa Gregory
We so enjoyed our stay and will return again!
Relaxing Beach Oasis!
by Michael Dupree
My family and I had a relaxing time at this beautiful house. The amenities were plentiful and well maintained. The walk to the beach is short and convenient. We plan to come back in the near future!
Beautiful house close to beach, community pool and great dining.
by Carls McGee
La Dolce Vita is a great property. Comfortable, convenient and well appointed.we especially loved the porches, cooking out and making use of the spacious kitchen. I was traveling with one other adult, two teenagers and two pre-teens. The house gave us all plenty of space to hang out together, or find a cozy place to retreat. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to go back for a return visit soon!
Beautiful, clean home close to the beach
by Kathy Green
I had always wanted to stay in this home but it stays pretty booked in advance and we usually have to book last minute due our jobs. I lucked up and the home was empty the first week of May. It fully lived up to my hopes and expectations. It was our first time staying with Cottages near the Sea, but we will be renting from them from now on. Linsey is very easy to work with. The company has very reasonable rates for the area. The home was exceptionally clean. It was well furnished and beautifully decorated. I loved the porches and the Clipper Cove neighborhood is very quiet. I was worried about noise as the house backs up to a main street, but I was never once bothered by traffic. The house is next to the walkway to the beach and it also has an entrance onto Hutchinson directly from the backyard. The home is approximately two blocks from the beach and there is a public beach access directly at the end of the street. Great home and company!
by Melissa Ivey
We stayed at this house for my husband's 40th birthday in the end of August! It was the 2 of us, my in laws and our dog. There is a fence in the backyard but it is not fully closed. We ended up getting a very large leash so she could stay outside with us, without running away! The house is beautiful! It has everything you need for the kitchen (appliances, tools, pots, pans, glasses, silverware, etc). There is free wireless internet, and tvs in the living room, and the bedrooms. There are board games and books as well. It feels like a home, not like a rental. The neighborhood is also very pretty and quiet. It is a block from the beach, really easy to take chairs, and all the beach stuff. There are some beach chairs in the house. There is a grill, it worked ok, but the house could use a new one. There are several family restaurants a few blocks form there, you can drive, but you can easily walk as well. Very close to shops, and there is a cafe a block away, across from the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and we'll be back for sure!
Great Home, Great Location-
by Steven E. LaVallee
We ( 4 adults, 1 child) just came back from a week at "La Dolce Vita". Beautiful home, nicely furnished, clean, spacious in an excellent location. A block and a half from the beautiful white sugar sands beach of Destin. Close to Destin commons, Publix, WalMart and many restaurants and attractions, jet ski rental ( fun), fishing charters ( loads of fresh fish caught). Just down the street is the access to the beach,Camile's for coffee, bike rental and for the foodies-790 North Restaurant. This community is a pleasant area for biking or walking. The home itself was nicely appointed, with granite counters in the kitchen, nice updated appliances,cabinetry, Flooring. There were plenty of pots/pans, dishes/glasses for cooking, dinning in. Even an outdoor Gas Grill and shower to wash off under after a day at the beach. Plenty of outdoor seating on the lower wrap around porch as well as the upstairs porch. The Master King bedroom was large & comfortable, wonderful bathroom, 2 headed shower, jacuzzi tub. Upstairs guest bathroom was large as well. Plenty of storage everywhere in this house. The three bedrooms upstairs all have their own door to the upper wrap around balcony. Relaxing area. The house is located in a Lovely quaint neighborhood with well kept homes, friendly people and pets. The ice cream man in his truck came through daily. The community pool was clean, convenient 1 minute walk. This house is a Gem... Would highly recommend this home to those looking for a wonderful experience in a quiet area. A real Wisteria Lane. Look forward to renting this home again!!!
La Dolce Vita in Destin was a good time
by Jon Balk
We rented La Dolce Vita for a month in early 2012 and really enjoyed our stay. The house has a large, well equiped kitchen and a nice living room with a 46” flat screen TV. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. A great place for a family vacation or a stay with friends. We especially liked relaxing and enjoying the sun on the large wrap-around porchs on both the first and second level. Excellent location, within 2 blocks of the beach and 3-4 blocks from Shopping malls. Very nice neigborhood with friendly people. Lots of great walking areas both on the beach and in the neighborhood. Publix, Best Buy, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, and many restaurants nearby.
Great house, great beach, cant wait to go back
by Georgia Labau
Stayed for two weeks in Oct 2011 with our dog. The house is charming & has everything. Spent a lot of time lounging on the great wrap around decks. Only a block to the beautiful beach. We rode bikes provided by owners all over the cute neighborhoods. Will definitely return!
