Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Paul and Mary Moses, Owners since 2000

Why the Owner Chose Old Florida Cottages:
We love the area, the houses, the family friendly feeling. We've traveled many places in the world and this is the most beautiful beach we've ever seen. Came back to our Florida, gulf coast beach!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sunset from our porch is spectacular. Most relaxing place to be!! Our whole family enjoys and loves the beach and our grandchildren from San Francisco, Maryland and Iceland especially love to visit here with us. We love to walk to Goatfeathers and buy fresh shrimp that they steam while you watch. Then we walk home, have a shrimp feast and watch the sun go down from our porch. Perfect ending of a perfect day!
