Welcome to Doctor’s Orders Beach House

Isn’t it easy to get sick of work, sick of stress and sick of a fast-paced life these days! The cure? A quiet getaway at Doctor’s Orders in Kokomo Cove! This Destin vacation rental sits just enough off the beaten path to offer real peace and tranquility- there are no parking lots, cement jungles or noisy neighbors here! It’s wooded surroundings encompass views of two inlets of Destiny West lake speckled with charming wildlife that call it home.

Another pleasant side effect of Doctor’s Orders is its location near Destin’s most powerful medicine- the soothing Gulf of Mexico. Head two blocks from the front porch and see the sun sparkling on the emerald water like diamonds, feel the powder-soft sand between your toes and listen to the rustle of sea oats in the Gulf Breeze. That powerful combination is sure to heal whatever ails you! Kokomo Cove’s entry also crosses a newly paved walking path that stretches the length of the beach road. Restaurants, shops and even golf courses dot this scenic route and provide entertaining waypoints for a sunny bike ride. The full photo gallery and a Virtual Tour are here or by clicking "Beach House" on the menu. Quotes are here or by clicking "Availability" on the menu.
