About the owner: We live and work in Atlanta. Sharon is a Registered Nurse and Rick is in Data Processing. We have been vacationing in South Walton since 2006 and love it. We spend as much time as we can at the beach. We Kayak, fish, walk and relax at the beach. We enjoy nature and the great weather. We love 'Hold Your Seahorses' and have enjoyed making the cottage fun and comfortable for you as well as ourselves, our kids and grand-kids.
Why the Owner Chose Old Florida Village: We have stayed at many houses in Santa Rosa Beach since 2006 and we have loved it very much. This is our choice destination for vacations and family get-togethers. Purchasing this home in Old Florida Village was an easy decision.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Three of the main reasons we love our cottage. (1) We relax and enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Enjoying coffee on the porch overlooking Hidden Lake and the birds is delightful. (2) We enjoy the beach very much. The beach during the day is delightful and walking to the beach for the sunset is a real pleasure. (3) We enjoy kayaking in the lakes, rivers and the ocean. A great pleasure is paddling at Grayton Beach just three miles east on 30A.
