Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We're empty-nesters who love living on the Gulf coast. We fish, golf, travel and enjoy life!

Why the Owner Chose Mexico Beach:
We bought this cottage for our vacation home while living in the Atlanta area. We couldn't get enough of this peaceful, friendly place, so we retired here 6 years ago. We have a home in 'town' and have decided to share this cottage with others who have fallen in love with the Gulf.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to walk our dog on the beach and pick up shells, ride bikes along the coast, take the boat out to catch some fish- enough for big family fish frys! If we don't feel like cooking, we head to Killer Seafood for nationally-recognized Killer Fish Tacos or a bread bowl full of fresh, local seafood and Award-winning Killer Seafood Sauce. Yum! Tell Kim, Kevin and Michael we said hello! Or, a trip to Provisions in Port Saint Joe- just a short drive up the coast to the east. Incredible food! Tell Antonio we sent you there!
