Property description

Be our Guest!
Enjoy the Sugar White Sand Beaches and wade in the Crystal Clear Waters of the Gulf of Mexico! We present "BIRD of PARADISE," a Florida Cottage in the grand tradition. It is steps from the beach, has seven palm trees, and offers seclusion. Call: 888-FL COTTAGE that is: 888-352-6882 to reserve your dates. Map Quest: 116 Gulfside Way, Miramar Beach, FL., 32550.

Tropical elegance is the theme of this getaway location. Guests comment, "It's like being on the set of a Hollywood Movie Studio because it is so picturesque." Many creature comforts pack out this Florida Cottage. Shop at designer outlet malls, play on championship golf courses, go deep sea fishing, parasail, rent mopeds or motorcycles, explore the coast, go to a movie, dine at gourmet restaurants. Do it ALL!!!

"USA Today" rated our Beach #1. Noncommercial pristine beaches boast beautifully protected sand dunes, contain extra wide sandbars, are 50 yards wide, and extend in both directions as far as the eye can see.

At sunset, the Gulf transforms into a vibrant array of tantalizing pinks, opulent oranges, iridescent blues, and velvety violets while the sun slowly sinks into the Southwestern horizon.

Visitor comments were entered into our guest register in the cottage.

Manager info

About: We love this home and want it to be an enjoyable retreat for you too!

Why Gulfside Cottages:
When our twins were born we lived near Atlanta and this is the perfect place to stay with children. We came back every year and decided it was time to own a Florida cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are walking distance to the beach but yet close enough to fine restaurants, movies, shopping, and fun family attractions.
