Magnolia Cottages by the Sea house description

Enjoy a short 3 minute stroll to the gorgeous beaches of Seacrest when you stay at 'Secret of Life,' a three bedroom, three bath home located in Magnolia Cottages by the Sea. This one-story cottage has all you need for the perfect family vacation or long-weekend with your friends. Nestled in the sand dunes and native brush of Seacrest Beach, you'll enjoy the natural, quiet setting of the cottage. Pavered streets add a neighborly feel to the homes. Just north of 30-A, you are only steps from the private beach walkover.

'Secret of Life' sleeps eight people. Master bedroom: Pillow-top king-size bed with private bath and jacuzzi bathtub and new flat screen TV.. Guest Bedroom: Pillow-top queen-size bed with private bath and new flat screen TV. Bunk room: Four beds with new wall-mounted TV with DVD.

Jenn-Air appliances and granite countertops greet you in the kitchen. It is stocked with all the amenities of home and then some! A full size washer and dryer are also provided for you.

You will love the airy and serene living area and it's 46 inch plasma tv with digital cable and premium channels. A built-in speaker system that easily accommodates an iPod and a high speed wi-fi connection are additional upgrades you'll enjoy.

For the outdoor lovers, you will appreciate the largest screened-in porch Magnolia has to offer. This second living area comes complete with a full-sized sofa, loveseat glider and chair. Bright cushions and year-round wicker will put the happy in happy hour! There is also a table and chairs for your morning coffee.

The shared swimming pool is just steps from our cottage or take a brief stroll to the beach. Grab the bikes and take a cruise on the 30-A bike path. Head to Rosemary Beach or the shops of Seaside for the afternoon. Or bike to a local park for an upclose look at nature. Bring your golf clubs for world-renowned golfing at area courses. And don't forget about the shopping on 30-A as well as the famous outlet malls of Destin!

Oh, and the BEACH!...Enjoy using beach chairs and umbrellas that are provided for you!

We'd love to have you as our guests at 'Secret of Life.'

                          Why the Owner Chose Magnolia Cottages by the Sea:
                          Our family first discovered the wonders of 30-A in 1997. We were instantly charmed by the beautiful beaches and low key family atmosphere. As the years flew by, we found ourselves returning to the beaches of South Walton again and again. Each trip brought more excellent meals, unique shopping, carefree bike rides, memorable laughs, and peaceful togetherness. As we made the decision to purchase a home for our family, we knew that Magnolia Cottages by the Sea was an ideal location. Seaside, Watercolor, Alys, and Rosemary Beach are minutes away. Many bike rides are made to Alys and Rosemary for breakfast and lunch! IF you choose to leave the serenity of 30-A behind, both Destin and Panama City Beach are easy drives as well. We truly enjoy our home and hope that you will find the peace that we do when we are there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Family friendly home with an open floorplan. Large screened-in porch is a wonderful bonus! The cottage is close to pool and steps to the beach!
