Why Patricia Arauz chose Miramar Beach
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Great relaxing stay in Destin!! Tons of space! Beautiful Property!
We've been to Mainsail a bunch of times, but we have always stayed in a condo unit in the towers. With our children being older now, we were looking for something with a bit more space that would allow for more privacy, but we still wanted to stay on the Mainsail property. When we found out we could rent this cottage it was a win win! Tons of space, SUPER close to the pool and grills (Just walk out the door and you're there!) Reserved chairs and umbrellas at the beach, tons of boogie boards and floats to use. This property is absolutely beautiful and it really felt like a home away from home. One of the best Destin vacations we've had. I highly recommend this property and the owners were a delight to work with! We'll be staying here again!!
Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed our home. Before we bought our cottage at Mainsail, we stayed in the condos and the townhouses. The cottage was so much nicer, more room, no elevators, and right by the pool we decided to buy it and just love it. Mainsail is such a great resort community with all the amenities. We try to keep our home nice and love renting to guests like you who take good care of it. Thanks!
Just as advertised. We had a wonderful time with our kids that are almost grown. Beach service was excellent, tennis courts had new lighting and store and shops located nearby. I really enjoyed not having to bother with elevators, Just pull under porch and your home.
Thank you for writing the review. I am glad you enjoyed your vacation at our home. We hope you will rent from us again.
Family OR Friends Getaway
Mainsail #23 was a home away from home. Comfortable, yet clean. Well-stocked with kitchen utensils, appliances, towels etc. Across from convenient smaller pool and grills yet short walk to larger pool, whirlpool, kiddie pool and more grills AND white sand beach. Bonus umbrella and two canvas chairs set up daily on the beach. Walk to Starbucks OR outlet mall. Quiet and not in the downtown Destin congestion. Miramar Beach fun and relaxation for all ages!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you had a good vacation and enjoyed our home. We love renting our home to great families like yours who take excellent care of our home. I hope you will rent our home again when you plan your next vacation
Very clean and comfortable cottage. Master bathroom and shower is wonderful. Kitchen well stocked. Felt very much at home. Nice resort, warm heated pool. Owners very easy to work with. Renting again next year.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We always try to keep our home nice and make it feel like home for our guests. I am glad you will be returning next year.
Great Fall Break
This is the third time our family has stayed at the Arauz home and we absolutely loved it. We love the convenience of being right on the beach, the pool, the perfect distance away from great restaurants. We occasionally consider trying a new beach in Florida or the Bama coast line, but we always decide to come back to this option because it feels like a perfect home away from home. As always we appreciate the Arauz family’s attention to dates, being flexible, asking how our experience was, etc
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and continue to come back to our home in Destin. We love renting to great families like yours who take such good care of our home.
The house was fantastic! So nice, updated!
The house was fantastic! It was so nice, spacious and beautifully decorated. All amenities were provided. So comfortable. I am so very sorry that the storm cut our stay short, but hope to take advantage of it again in the near future.
Thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay even though it was shortened by the hurricane. We were so glad Mainsail did not sustain any damage. We hope to rent to you again soon
