Deal directly with the owner who is quick to respond to any of your needs. 'This is my second home and it is important to me that you are happy!'
Located between Seaside and Destin in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Fancy Free is a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath cottage that is part of a small Family Oriented neighborhood of only 75 cottage style homes called Old Florida Village. A community pool a couple of houses down makes keeping tabs on those loved ones especially convenient, and beach access is a short walk (.4 mile).
This 'Smoke-Free' Florida Cottage-style home features clapboard siding, a tin roof and 4 covered porches. Morning coffee and gentle sea breezes can be enjoyed in comfortable outdoor furniture off the private porches. The cottage is professionally furnished and decorated with overstuffed casual yet elegant furnishings that create a classy Caribbean beach ambience. The cottage comfortably sleeps 10 with one King bed, one Queen, a twin over full with trundle, and one Queen sofa bed.
Our location is convenient to fine dining like Bud and Alleys and The Pizza Bar in Seaside, Criollas in Grayton Beach, and Stinky's in Dune Allen, and Fish out of Water in Watercolor as well as funky dining with great jazz at Picolos and the Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We are within walking distance to Gulf Place with boutique shops, outdoor dining at Smiling Fish Cafe, Moon Dogies bike rentals, Sunday night concerts on the green and ice cream at Miss Lucilles Gossip Parlor. The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club is also nearby with two holes overlooking the Gulf as well as gulf front dining. Eighteen miles of bike paths along the beach and coastal dune lakes make exercise a fun and interesting event. The largest designer outlet mall in the country is a 10 minute drive in San Destin.
Large TVs and DVDs for movies in all bedrooms and the living room provide a nice respite after the sun and surf of the day. For those interested in cyber-surfing, Fancy Free has high speed wireless internet connection. A Sony Play Station keeps even the most rambunctious entertained for hours.
We accept small dogs (under 25 pounds) but please, no cats for owner health reasons.

We loved staying at Fancy Free! We had two couples (one with a baby) and this was the perfect place for us. It was super clean and very nicely decorated. Lots of extras. The beach was a short walk away. We would for sure stay here again!!!

Great Vacation Cottage
Great Vacation Cottage
This was our second year to spend time in Old Florida Village. We love the development and Fancy Free proved to be a great place to stay. We really like the beach access, it has clean restrooms and a pavilion a the top of the short set of stairs to the beach. Many times we have walked to the beach, but ample parking is available at the access. The owners had everything ready for us, this cottage was equipped as good or better that any we have rented in years past. We hope to visit Fancy Free next year.

Great House, great neighborhood
Great House, great neighborhood
Fancy Free was perfect for my family of 5 plus my parents. The rooms are comfortable and perfectly furnished. The kids room was great with the bunk beds and trundle. We rented bikes from Butterfly rentals in Gulf Place and had fun riding them everywhere. I felt safe riding the trail along 30-A. Great time!

About the owner: The best place that I can be is at the beach.
Why the Owner Chose Old Florida Village:
After visiting many many beaches in the US we came to The Beaches of South Walton on an anniversay getaway in 1998. 2 months later we owned a place in Destin. In 2005 we decided to look for a larger place that we could really spend more time enjoying. We have been in love with Santa Rosa Beach ever since. It is our favorite place to be!
