Magnolia Cottages by the Sea house description

It is beautiful today and the Emerald Green waters are calm and peaceful… simply ideal for an escape from the hectic stress of everyday life.

We are pleased to invite you to the perfect Florida get-a-way at our Magnolia Cottage by the Sea. Conveniently located on scenic Hwy 30A and a world away from the crowded “spring break and summer party scenes,” pure enjoyment and tranquility are what you will find here. Indulge yourself in the quiet serenity of white sand beaches, nap by the pool which is just steps away or relax on your private screened-in porch, where the natural aromatherapy of the surrounding Florida Pines will soothe you into a stress-free state of mind.

If a little high-seas adventure is what your heart desires, you can also choose from an endless list of options including deep-sea fishing, para-sailing, sailboat and jet ski rentals, dolphin tours and much more. If shopping is your idea of vacation fun, we are centrally located between three of the best shopping arenas on the Emerald Coast, Silver Sands Outlet Stores and Destin Commons to the west and the brand new, Caribbean-themed Pier Park just 20 minutes to the east at Panama City Beach.

Fun in the sun, the beautiful white sand beaches and clear, sparkling waters of the Emerald Coast await. Come join us and experience your personal slice of heaven today.

It is so quiet here you could write your long over due Novel.

Your hosts,
Dave & Jan

            The house is a short walk to the ocean--beautiful sand beach where you can walk for miles.It is fully equipped with every thing you need for cooking etc. If you have a bike the trail is about 15 miles long and takes you to the small villages near by. The state parks are wonderful and near . The house is just as it is shown. You will love it.

            The cottage was really cute, very updated , up scaled and very clean. Bed was comfortable and shower great ! We enjoyed the area. The beach was fantastic and so near by . the stairs to beach might be difficult for some...Dillion 's chair rental was a plus. The pool was heated perfectly. Would have liked a table to eat on the porch. Porch was dark for us Northerners...wanted a place to sit in the sun...Needed a list of tv channels...and maybe some recommendations of local info... Having to buy our own toilet paper was a bit of a turn off.

            Owner response: Thank you for your nice words about our rental unit at Magnolia Cottages by the Sea. We work hard to provide a clean and comfortable rental for your Holiday/Vacation. The small tables currently on the porch seem to have been sufficient in the past. We will check with the Cable company for a list of TV channels. The porch is quiet and serene and looks to natural Florida vegetation. The pool and beach has a lot of sun available. The documentation we send to renters contains several pages of information on Scenic 30-A activities, in addition the Rental Information Document we send to renters also includes a list of items you should bring or buy including toilet paper. We furnish enough paper products to get you started - at least one roll of toilet paper and bar of soap in each bathroom. Perhaps you missed this when reading the contract and other documents we send to all of our guests.

            We just returned from our vacation at your home. It was wonderful and we enjoyed our stay very much. We loved cooking in the kitchen and the home decor. It was really home away from home for our family. There were 3 adults and 3 kids (7, 8 & 10) and everyone of us loved the house. I will recommend your home to others and love the VRBO site, too. It was our first time to this area and we are already dreaming about a return visit. Love the community area your home is in and the closeness to the beach. The beach was never crowded and was a relaxing and fun experience. We will be in touch to rent from you again! Thank you so much!

            My family of 5 stayed here for a week in July 11. It was perfect. The cottage was just what we needed. Nicely decorated and clean. The pool was nice...very hot but we were at the beach more. It was a easy 5 min. walk to the beach. There are about 60 stairs over the dunes to the beach. The owners were super helpful and easy to contact if needed. We loved our stay.

            Owner response: We very much appreciate this comment. Our goal is for our guests to feel comfortable in our properties and enjoy their stay - and want to come back again. We strive for a clean rental, and our philosophy is, "When the renter walks in to the unit it should be as new as a thorough cleaning can make it." Thank You, Dave & Jan
