Nantucket Rainbow Cottages is a charming, seaside community with 20 colorful cottages in the quaint neighborhood of Crystal Beach in Destin, FL. Crystal Beach is known for its beautiful, less-congested beach, great walking/biking and pastel colored homes.
All of the cottages of Nantucket surround the seasonally heated swimming pool and sundeck. Lush, tropical landscaping abounds and each of the stand-alone buildings contain 2 units; one upstairs and one down.
You'll be right across the street from the beach, a short 100-yard stroll puts you right in the warm, blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
This 2nd floor condo is a beautifully upgraded unit with a king sized bed in the master, designer bedding, flat screen TV, and inspirational scripture decor. The kids are sure to love the fun bunk beds with crisp white bedding. The bathroom offers a glass enclosed shower with upgraded mirror and fixtures. The unit does not offer a tub, only a walk-in shower. The living room has a crisp clean contemporary design, a large flat screen TV, a private balcony, and patio furniture. There is also a CD stereo system for your listening pleasure. The kitchen has high end appliances as well as a full compliment of house wares needed for your stay.
You can't beat the location. Walk to the Crab Trap restaurant, or the 75 shops and restaurants of Destin Commons, including The Hard Rock Cafe, Bass Pro Shop, movie theaters, coffee shops, and bike and scooter rentals. Interactive water fountains make this a popular spot for little ones, too. You're also close to Henderson Beach State Park, with all its natural beauty.
There is a centrally located, coin operated laundry room for your convenience.
The building contains 2 identical one bedroom condos, one upstairs and one downstairs. See Nantucket 10B for the downstairs unit in this building. You could rent both with friends or family and keep the unit doors open and have the whole run of the cottage.
In order to keep our prices as low as possible, prices listed do not include beach service.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was clean, had plenty of towels, dish soap, TP, etc. for the two of us. It was close to the beach, restuatrants and shopping. The bed was not comfortable for us, it was a king, however it was a tempurpedic(knock off) which for us didnt provide back support nor did the sheets fit it(too big) which was annoying. All in all, good price and location. I recommend to download the APP for the property, makes it easy with your key code and checking out. WI-FI connections are bad!

Our unit (#10a) was so nice and clean. Everything was just as we expected it to be. Everything we needed was supplied, pots/pans, a very nice set of dishes, dish detergent, towels. Although we did bring trash bags just in case and ended up using them. Theres an ice maker in the freezer and even a blender, electric can opener and electric mixer. We were very satisfied. We only spent 3 nights but I would recommend bringing extra towels, tissue, etc if you are planning to stay much longer. The ironing board was broken, we reported it but didnt recieve another one. Wasnt a huge setback.Oh and dont leave food items hanging around because it will draw roaches. Although we didnt seem to have a problem until the guests below us checked in. Walking distance from beach!

Really liked the apartment though storage and cooking space is an issue. Luckily we were there just for a couple of nights so it was not a big deal, but if we were there any longer we would not have been able to even store groceries. The aC did not work in the apartment and I requested maintenance to stop by to look at it on Saturday and they did not call me back until Monday when I was leaving. Luckily it rained and cooled down over the weekend so this as not a big deal either. Beach access is a bit strange because it seems like all the beaches accross the street are private so we were not sure where one would actually be able to use the beach while staying here. Overall though, it was nice, clean, safe and we may return for a short weekend.

We loved this location...a two minute walk to the beach and Destin Commons is just down the road! The cottages are adorable. There is a very nice heated pool. Best of all is the affordable price!!! We will definitely be back;-)

My experience with RealJoy was 5 star from start to finish. The unit I selected was clean, well appointed and had all the items needed for a weeks vacation. I will attempt to duplicate this vacation next year in the "cottages". The only disappointment was being told there were charcoal bar-b-ques on site when there were none. This did not cause any major issues though. Anyone looking for a nice clean reasonably priced vacation condo should consider this company. Read more

The furnishings of this place and the location were excellent, but the cleanliness was much to be desired. There was food splotches and dirt on the walls, the baseboards were so dusty they were gray. We had roaches, we had to go purchase roach spray. The mold in the shower was disgusting. I don't think the actual owners or the managemant company of this place know how poorly a job the cleaning crew does, because if they did they wouldn't want to personally stay here. Could be an excellent place to stay if it was cleaned properly and sprayed for bugs. Read more
We appreciate the review with your concerns! We have several 5 star reviews on this property and cleaning is rarely a problem. Also, roaches are usually not a problem on the top floor unless you leave the sliding glass door open (Palmetto bugs in the trees will fly right inside the cool room).
We have since deep cleaned the condo to make sure everything is back to 5 star status and went ahead and sent over Home Team Pest Defense to make sure there are no bugs!
Next time please call us right away and we can quickly have the place cleaned and bugs taken care of as well, no problem! I couldn't find a record that you had notified us and we are sorry that we weren't able to make things better while you were still in town.

We are a family of five and really enjoyed the stay at Nantucket. It would have been good to know which beach access to use to be away from the private areas. It was not hard to find where to go but would have saved a little extra walk time having three children in tow. It was a great room and enjoyed staying there. We will definitely be repeat customers in the future when we come to Destin. Thanks!! Read more

Good location, pretty close to the beach. Not impressed with the lack of dishwasher and the fact that the little things were missing; how can you not have a broom at a beach house! I did like the fact that the entry system was a key code, it really helped not having to carry keys around. The fact that I did not have to check in and out was great. Read more
Sorry you thought there would be a dishwasher, glad you liked our keyless entry.
"Wonderful Vacation in Destin,Fl"

The cottage was wonderful by all accounts. Every thing you could want to do or shop is near by. The beach access is close to the cottages. The cottages them selves were very homey and relaxing. The one we rented was an upstairs unit and it got a lot of natural light. Every thing was really nice inside, the only thing is it didn't have a dishwasher. And be sure to bring some toilet paper with you. We got there and there was only one roll in place.Ha ha ha !! Over all our rental experience was very enjoyable, no hassles and the place was really quiet. We plan on coming back in September oh this year also to for 4 or 5 nites. Can't wait to get back!

Thanks for the kind words - we'd love to work with you again!

"We had an awesome time!!"
Left on 06/13/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 13, 2013Stayed May 2013
Our family stayed here in May it was awesome! Not a very far walk to the beach and when we came back we could use the shower at the pool to get some of the sand off the pool was never crowded. There was only one time we had to call for service and our call was prompltly returned.
The only problem was the cook ware. We are a family of four. The only skillet to use was a small one so we went an bought one. There was also no bake wear. Even with that we had a wonderful time and would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
Thanks Nantucket Cottages
