Property Description

Ocean Mist Cottage Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Once you look through the Ocean Mist, you'll notice the lighthouses right away. Navigate toward the nautical beacons that capture the theme of this beach house, and they will lead you to the vacation of a lifetime! After a day of fun in the sun, you can relax with a cocktail and a 'lighthouse view' from the third-floor balcony. Or better yet, let everyone find their own relaxation port . . . from kicking back on the second-floor deck and enjoying the pleasant breezes and cheerful surroundings of this Crystal Beach neighborhood . . .to unwinding in the master bath Jacuzzi . . . or taking an afternoon dip in your own private splash pool, complete with a outdoor shower!

Ocean Mist was perfect for an additional house needed for our annual reunion. The house was very clean and appeared to have been recently updated. We have stayed in the Crystal Shiores neighborhood for many years and love the location. Some of the homes in Crystal Shores have very limited parking but Oceam Mist easily could have accommodated four cars. Newman Dailey always exceeds our expectations with the professional management of their rental properties.

Our family LOVED our stay! The house was perfectly located for access to the beach and to shopping. We walked in the mornings for exercise and then down to the beach for the rest of the day. The neighborhood was beautifully landscaped and peaceful. We can't wait to get back again next year.

There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out. A quick walk to the beach took less than 5 minutes. One of our favorite features was the outdoor heated shower by the pool. The pool is small, but plenty big for the kids to play for hours. The property manager was amazing and even brought us some amazing homemade bread. I would highly recommend this place for families or any one just looking for a great place, close to the beach.

My first experience with Newman-Dailey and they were great. A representative called me the day before check in and gave me updated information. The office staff on our arrival day were friendly and helpful. The property was very good. Great location with an easy walk to the beach and easy drive to shopping and restaurants. We made daily use of the pool and cooked outside on the grill a couple of times. The kitchen was stocked with all necessary items and we cooked in breakfast every morning and most lunches. The bedrooms were comfortable each with their own bath. There was some remodel work going on that did not interfere with our stay. We would definitely use Newman-Dailey again and recommend the Ocean Mist Cottage.

It was another great winter for us (number 8) in the Ocean Mist Cottage! We were there from late October 2013 until mid- March of 2014. And we highly recommend it for spring, summer, or fall. It's a wonderful place to stay close to the beach (half block) and yet with the privacy of a home. For us it's a perfect 10. -- L & K Jackson, Missouri

Great location, great house, great vaca.
by Brian, Michelle, Brandon and Nathan
★★★★★ 5 of 5
This is a great 3 BR house that is nicely done inside. My wife loved it. More than enough room for the four of us. We had a minor problem with the pool and one of the beds in the 2nd floor guest room and someone was out that same day to fix both problems. 3 minute walk to the beach access. Within walking distance to Camille's. The pool was a little small but that didn't keep us from enjoying it every night. The boys especially loved the pool. The only disappointment is the house did not have any beach chairs or an umbrella to take to the beach. We flew down, so we bought a couple chairs and an umbrella and left them behind for those who might follow us. Bottom line, we would stay here again, so what else can you say? Great place, great service, great location. Great vacation. Memories for a lifetime.

the location of this house made our beach vacation great. Very short walk to beach. we had several problems with the house and the leasing company was quick to respond in resolving issues. Unfortunately, 3 of the 4 beds on this property are quite uncomfortable: bowing in the middle, not comfortable for 2 people . New mattresses would make this house an a+ property. The house has a dated feel to it, an updating in paint, carpet etc would make this place a gem! Great location and comfortable for a family.

We spent two weeks in Ocean Mist and loved the house and the neighborhood. Short walk to the beach that even the 2 year old could easily make carrying her sand bucket! The house was very clean and property well maintained. We enjoyed evenings in the pool or a beverage one of the 3 porches. Very close to great shopping & restaurants.

Ocean Mist is located very close to the beach. It was about a 3 block walk to the beach. While there, the weather was not the best, but it was surprising how much we spent near the pool too. The house was in good condition and in a very nice neighborhood. It is close to shopping and the golf courses. Newman- Dailey was very responsive to our needs and we would not hesitate to rent through their company again. We took advantage of some of the discounts they offered too.

This past winter (2012-13)was #7 in the Ocean Mist Cottage for us, and #8 in a property managed by Newman-Dailey. In short, the cottage, the managers, and the location in Destin were all wonderful! And, there's no reason whatsoever to doubt that the Ocean Mist would also be a fantastic place to stay in the spring, summer, or fall. There's only one catch: next winter is already booked.

Undeniably Phenomenal!!
by Kevin
★★★★★ 5 of 5
Our family and extended family (totaling 9)had all the space we needed and then some. The home was beautiful and the location is ideal. The walk to the beach is very short, taking just a couple of minutes. Even the 3 year old didn't mind the walk. The home has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as general living space, allowing us to be together but not right on top of each other. The pool is a perfect size to relax in! The home is also close to all types of shopping and activities. Newman-Dailey made check in and check out very simple, even with us arriving very late on the day of check in. We want to go back to the home every year!!!

Cheers for Oceanmist Cottage

★★★★★ 5 of 5
WE LOVE Ocean Mist! It has been our Florida home for seven winters. The cottage is just perfect for us in every way. And, it would be a great choice for anyone looking for a place to stay during the spring, summer, or fall. It is located a half block from the Gulf of Mexico in the Crystal Beach area of Destin. Yet, our neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. Our street is a meandering circle lined with small picket fenses. We observe palm trees, feel warm breezes, and see the ocean every day - even from our top deck! Everything is close: the emerald green waters, the sugar white sand, wonderful restaurants, great places for walking and riding bikes, golf courses, movie theatres, doctors, dentists, a hospital, Destin Commons, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and much, much more. Newman-Dailey, property managers for the cottage, takes good care of us and fulfills any need we may have. The owner makes upgrades and improvements on a regular basis in order to make the home more pleasing and comfortable for occupants. In short, it is a delight to pass along a good word regarding the Ocean Mist Cottage, and we do so without any hesitation whatsoever. -- Larry and Kay Jackson

Note from Property Manager
by aturner
★★★★★ 5 of 5
The owner of this adorable beach cottage has completed numerous projects over the past few months. Newman-Dailey appreciates our hands-on owners who take time to keep their home away from home in the best condition possible. Here are a few of the projects the owner has completed recently: new outdoor patio furniture, the pool was completely resurfaced, flat screen televisions throughout the entire home, Blue-Ray player added to the living room entertainment center, new bedding set for the master bedroom and one year ago a new AC system inside and out. This is a perfect home for a family getaway or a much needed break for mom and dad. No matter the reason I guarantee you will enjoy your stay at Oceanmist Cottage!

You can almost feel the Ocean or in this case Gulf mist at this adorable home. We immediately felt comofortable and relaxed. The location was perfect for our family. The little ones enjoyed the pool. You can tell the owner takes pride and continues to keep the home in great condition. The wood floors are beautiful and all the flat screen tv's came in handy on a day of rain, everyone was able to watch movies and kids played games. We really enjoy the Crystal Beach area and hope to be back again next year. Thank you for sharing your home with us. The Porters

relaxing beach house

★★★★☆ 4 of 5
We picked Ocean Mist because it had a pool for the kids. Unfortunately when we arrived on Sat. the pool pump was broken and was not fixed until Monday. Newman Dailey did credit the cost of the pool heat back to us. The pool and deck furniture appear to be in need of a little TLC. Fortunately, there is a beautiful community pool in Crystal Shores that the kids enjoyed. The house was very clean and perfect for what we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with nice cooking utensils, dishware, etc. My husband enjoyed the view and breezes from the crow's nest, although it was in need of some paint/repair. The location was great and a close walk to the beach (We did this with five girls under age 8 at least once a day). If you want to be much closer you need to be on the beach or across the street. The house was close to shopping and restaurants. We liked the house and location...overall it was in pretty good shape for a beach rental. Don't recommend making a decision to rent it based soley on the pool...

This is the fourth or fifth time we've visited Destin and the third time we've stayed in Ocean Mist. The weather was beautiful despite weather forecasts predicting thunderstorms and the beaches were sparsely populated, as they always are in October. We have always enjoyed the lay-out and outdoor spaces, including the pool, at Ocean Mist and its proximity to the beach, shopping, and entertainment. Newman Dailey made the reservation and check-in process easy and convenient and the new code key entry eliminates the worry of loosing and tracking down keys. The only negative comment I have is that the mattresses and pillows weren't very comfortable. In fact, I went out to buy new pillows several days into the trip so that I could sleep better. So, bring your own pillows if you're picky about that sort of thing.

Summer Vacation

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Mist. The splash pool was nice. Loved the view from the third floor. One suggestion would be that the owner replace the outdoor plastic furniture. Most of the pieces of furniture were cracked leading to one being pinched. Also one of the beds upstairs is in need of some repair.

Great House, Great Location, Could use some TLC

We had a great experience staying as a family at Ocean Mist. The beach was fantastic and so close! It's really a great house and the neighborhood was beautiful. I only wish the house had a little TLC. The outside of it was in desperate need of cleaning, the porches and outside furniture were also filthy, and there were a TON of little bugs flying around inside the kitchen window when we arrived. I cleaned all of the linens and the kitchen counters before we could feel comfortable enough to settle in. The staff at Newman Dailey were fantastic, though! I'd go through them again a heartbeat!!

A Wonderful Vacation
by AU Tiger Fan
★★★★☆ 4 of 5
When my family and I decided to take a summer vacation to Destin Fl I instantly hit the net in search of the perfect vacation rental. We decided upon the Ocean Mist Cottage for several reasons. 1. its close proximity to the beach and 2. the amount of people the house could sleep. The house was amazing. Located just off Hwy 98 which is the main strip for tourist it was convenient to everything we wanted to do while in Destin. It was very clean upon arrival and very well kept. Oh and not to mention a five minute walk from the beach. The motor in the pool did stop working our second day there and it was not repaired before we left. The only other negative is that the two upper levels were substantially cooler than the first floor but if you are like my family we were only there at night so it wasn't a huge deal. Overall this house was a great fit for my family. The neighborhood was as cute and quaint as can be. We had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend this house to family and friends. I rated four stars becuase of the issues with the air conditioner and the pool.

My husband and I got married in Destin Beach 12 years ago. We actually got married in the Hudson Blendhiem(Newman Dailey property). We love Destin and come almost every year since we were married. We have stayed in multiple properties but the Ocean Mist is our favorite. The pool is very nice and private. We love the 3rd floor deck (my husband calls it his crows nest)It feels like home when we stay there.

The house is close enough to the beach but if you have children or want to take chairs or a cooler it would be a bit of a walk. The house was very nice but had some issues. The pool was not clean and the hot tub was not working properly. There was also a problem with the a/c not working properly. By the last day of our visit the unit was leaking through the ceiling to the floor below in the kitchen. We had a good time anyway!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review this great vacation rental home. I was so sorry to hear that the ac unit went out during your stay. We generally do a minimum of two system checks each year in hopes of catching any repairs that may be needed, unfortunately those types of repairs can never be predicted. I do apologize if the home seemed further from the beach then you expected. Our vacation specialists are very knowledgeable regarding those types of details although I did notice that your reservation was made through an auction so you made not have had the chance to speak with one of our agents. I hope that you give Newman-Dailey the opportunity to arrange your next vacation, we look forward to seeing you at the beach. Amy Turner Property Manager Newman-Dailey Resort Properties
