Property description

Beach cottage is one block or about 200 yards from a wide, white sand beach. For the sport enthusiast, two football fields, not including the end zones.
Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? My cottage does not have landscaped gardens but has a nice open air porch in the front. It is just as nice as the more expensive places.
Now if you want a home that is on the beach, that is another story. Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.
Maximum capacity is 7 or 8. Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in. and ready for your dog to run free.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy fresh breezes, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.
You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, front bedroom, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

No pictures of the beach down the street but it is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I feel responsible to ensure you enjoy your visit when you stay at my vacation rental. I desire to have a home where fond memories are created to last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Mexico Beach:
Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! . Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beach chairs, wagon, 3 beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.
