Property description



INTERNET......PEACE AND QUIET ****NO PETS **** no pets *** NO PETS

::::::: Although we are fond of children, THIS cottage and SETTING are NOT conducive for families...I have another wonderful FAMILY home called the CYPRESS RITZZ which is nearby the Green GEcko.::::::::ask me about that for families.
2 night minimum....bedtax of 11.5% is already included in the rates below..however, you need to add cleaning fee

I live close by and check on my rentals... NO PETS or SMOKING

If you are looking for peace, quiet, and the beach as it used to
be without the neon lights and commercial stuff... this adorable two-story cottage is the ticket! Situated on a spacious lot with natural vegetation, including palmetos and water oaks, you will feel the magic and calm of the old Florida Spirit.

A Coastal Cottage... with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, white-wood walls, and a half bath on first level. Kitchen is fully equipped and open to the lofty living room where you can relax with a book or watch your favorite movie.

Bedroom is upstairs and is a good size with a KING Bed with a comfortable chair..a full bath, and French Doors opening to a Juliet balcony where you can experience the surrounding Cypressheads while enjoying your morning coffee or just plain relax.

This interesting cottage adjoins the Top'sl Wildlife Preserve and is just a few blocks from the beach, however, because of the Preserve, you cannot walk directly to the beach and you CANNOT see the water.

Do not be surprised if you see deer, owls, herons, and hawks, hear coyotes, bobwhites, and whipperwhils, and smell and hear the surf as it pounds on our lovely, white sand which is just minutes away. Your senses will be overwhelmed at night when you sit in the HOT TUB... watch shooting stars and hear the frogs in the cypress head.--- The green gecko and the Little cottage share the Hot Tub and pool.....both cottages have a limit of two people

Built in 2002, this cottage invites you with its soothing, new, and clean lines. Beach access is just a short distance and you can bike to Grayton, Blue Mountain, Watercolor, Seaside, and Rosemary Beach on the new Bike Trail which you can access from our drive.

Great Golf courses such as Santa Rosa Golf Country Club, Camp Creek, Burnt Pines, Regatta Bay and Kelly Plantation are all within 5-20 minutes. And the SHOPPING... you won't believe the bargains at the outlet mall which is 15 minutes away. If you are tired of those same old condominium experiences... give us a try...

We are within driving distance of Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville, Birmingham, New Orleans, and yes, even Tampa... Southern Florida likes us too!

.... NO SMOKING... And NO PETS...SORRY, NOT EVEN small ones! If you decide to bring one, I will make you leave and I will keep your deposit ..........

Owner info

About the owner: I am a Realtor and my husband is a 'rocket scientist'... I was a Realtor for years in Nashville and Franklin Tennessee before coming to the beach in 1998. My husband is a graduate of Alabama and MIT....I originally was from Colorado where I got my degree in Science and Math.

Why the Owner Chose Cypress Dunes:
I purchased this location when I first moved to the beach, and decided to build myself a cute private little cottage so that I will have something when I retire....but I might never retire because I also purchased a great spot in Seaside where I live and own a little gallery and toy store...So I decided to share this adorable house with others who also feel the magic of this special place within easy biking distance to the beach adjoining the wildlife preserve.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
When I found this quiet street and private lot, and began building the cottage, there were many green geckos sunning on the boards, so my kids said...why don't you call it the Green Gecko....We have kept it varying shades of green since it was built.
