Property description

Imagine a snow-white sand dune with swaying sea oats by Caribbean-green water on Carillon Beach, Florida. That's where 'DoodleBug' proudly sits. You'll love the spectacular sunsets over the gulf here from outdoors & indoors.

DoodleBug Cottage provides casual, luxury accommodations with a coastal flair. She is awash in light, airy well-appointed interiors with clean lines. When you reach the spacious gulf-front rooms, you will have to stop and be captivated by the emerald green ocean views. The outdoors brilliantly fuses with the indoors thanks to dual french doors and great deck space.
This beach home is very family oriented with fun murals on the walls, bright airy paint and colorful Nancy Drew paintings throughout.
There is also no home to the west of DoodleBug giving it the privacy and exclusivity you're looking for.

As of February 2012 we have upgraded to brand new pillowtop king beds & bedding, brand new furniture, brand new Sony Bravia Flatscreen Tv's & Blu Ray players in every room as well as fresh paint throughout. New Adirondack chairs for the decks and luxury chaise loungers off the master bedroom deck..
