Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We have family in Atlanta who have owned a beachfront home in the area since the early 90s. Every summer, they would host the whole family - dozens of us- for a week at the beach. We fell in love with the area and knew someday we'd own our own home. Our two boys have been coming here since they were born. Our oldest came only a few weeks old! A marriage of a meteorologist and a personal trainer plus two teenage boys and extended family that come to visit- that's us. We live in the northeast, so we can't wait to shake off the cold for a visit every April.

Why Gulfside Cottages:
A daily run brought us through the neighborhood in 2008. The time was right for us to seriously consider owning a home here. It is a short distance to our family member's home along the beach. The location can't be beat, except for maybe being directly on the water. The neighborhood is tucked away and private. The charming walkway leads right to the beach and is an easy walk to the white sand and warm water. Walk out of the house in the other direction and you are an even shorter walk to the neighborhood pool. The Gulfside Cottages are kept up beautifully and the tropical landscaping really takes you away from all your cares back home. Restaurants, groceries, and outlet shopping are truly a short walk away. You can't ask for a better spot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We take care of this house as if we live in it ourselves. Every bedroom is private and has its own porch or balcony. All have their own television and DVD. Since we bought it, we've had it powerwashed and painted. The AC was updated. The sleep sofa is new. We've updated the outside furniture, replaced the main television, replaced the refrigerator and oven/stove. essentially just kept it up so that you feel like it is yours when you arrive. We look forward to our Great Escape and hope you do too!
