Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Have you ever wanted to spend a week in your OWN luxury beach house with family and friends? Choose 'Cobia Cottage' and you will never want to go home.

Why? Cobia Cottage has EVERYTHING your heart desires.... Located south of Scenic Highway 30-A in Blue Mountain Beach, tucked into a quiet little neighborhood, Cobia Cottage is 15 minutes east of Destin, 10 minutes west of Seaside close to everything, yet without the traffic and congestion.

This private access, secluded beach offers the famous sugar white sands, beautiful emerald blue water, and is only a short 300 yards away- a quick trip in our private golf cart, included for your ease and comfort.

Why is Cobia Cottage your best choice?

We think that Cobia reflects the culmination of eight years of searching for just the 'right' vacation home. You will quickly guess that Cobia was designed by an artist by all the hand painted touches. Beautiful tropical colors, and designer furnishings, everything was detailed to make you feel as we do in our vacation home comfortable, pampered and a true respite to the beach.

The front porch leads you to the left into the large eat-in kitchen, with Corian countertops and an open breakfast bar/dining area, all awash in sunny yellow. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need- from making morning coffee to a gourmet seafood dinner (the fresh seafood market is a quick drive.) You also have a convenient powder bath, as well as full laundry facilities.

To your right is the Florida Family room for watching your favorite movie on the 42 inch LCD HD television with surround sound speakers or just discussing the day with friends and family. The sofa converts into a queen sized be if needed.

Peach Parfait

The master suite is located on the second floor. There you will find a queen-sized bed with memory foam mattress, 32 inch LCD TV, DVD and balcony view. (Private bath)

Key Lime Treat

The other bedroom on the second floor, is perfect as an optional kid hang-out area. A wicker daybed and trundle provide sleeping and allow plenty of room to play, with the 32 inch LCD TV, DVD and PS2 game system. The perfect bedroom for little ones to teens. (Private bath)

Blueberry Frost

The third bedroom is on the third floor; featuring a queen sized bed, 32 inch LCD TV, DVD. (Private bath)

Aqua Whip

The fourth bedroom is also on the third floor featuring a queen sized bed, TV, DVD. ( private bath)

The Balcony

A twenty foot covered balcony is perfect for relaxing, reading, or just listening to the surf. Both of the third floor bedrooms open up to the balcony, which is large enough for the entire family to enjoy.

Special Note about Bathrooms

Cobia is one of the few homes in which every bedroom has its’ own full bath. Each one is hand finished to coordinate with the bedroom. Each is furnished with oversized, soft towels for your comfort.

In the backyard you will find the grill, and shady area for dining out. We have installed our own out door shower for rinsing off beach sand.

Your trip to the beach or community pool is quick and easy with the use of our private golf cart (no need to rent)and a complete beach set up with umbrella and beach chairs (no need to rent).

Cobia Cottage is equipped with two adult bicycles (no need to rent) for touring the scenic Highway 30A bicycle path or taking a breezy coastal ride along the paved 19 mile Timpoochee Trail.

For the golfer, Cobia Cottage is only 1 1/2 miles from Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club. This is a beautiful course, featuring towering pine trees and the area's only gulf fronting holes. The Sandestin Resort, home of the Boeing/Sandestin Champions PGA tournament, has three top rated courses.

Cobia Cottage is pet friendly!.

If you haven't stayed in this area before, you are in for a wonderful experience. We fell in love with Scenic Highway 30A area years ago. A great time (and a great all inclusive rate) awaits you!

Fantastic Fun!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place for a vacation! Robert was super patient with all of my questions and always responded quickly. Our group consisted of all girls (my mom, my sisters, my daughters, and me) so all the bathrooms was a must! Everyone had her own private spot in the house to relax in. The house is fantastic. We could make dinner after a long day at the beach, or bring food home and just relax at the kitchen table/bar area. How is it possible to leave with more food than you brought down? Well, we did it! Publix and Walmart are nearby. We loved having the golf cart to tote everything/everyone down to the private access beach. The driver of the day would load up 1-3 of us, with as much beach stuff as we wanted to haul for the day. The rest would walk. It really is an easy walk. Coming home, the driver would drop off gear and the first group, then circle back around to get the exhausted stragglers! It was fantastic! We spent time in PCB and Destin (and of course Seaside), all pretty easy to get to. I highly recommend Cobia Cottage, just please don’t go when we want to go back, so we can stay here again!

Great House and Area

  • 5 of 5

Great location and place to stay! Love the access to the beach. House was well stocked with enough room and bathrooms for everybody. Mr. Norris was great about providing rental information. Nice area and not crowded although it was a busy time of year. :-)

An incredible week in Cobia Cottage!!! Loved every minute of this vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I have ONLY good things to say about our vacation at Santa Rosa beach. We had 3 families at the house, so accommodations were perfect.

First, I will comment on Cobia Cottage. It is everything it says it is. The room situation was perfect for our families. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. You do walk through the "kids" room (2 sets of bunk beds w/ trundle) to get to the upper level bedrooms, but that was really no issue. Loved that the upper bedrooms had a private balcony, perfect for reading and escaping the chaos of the household.

The kitchen was furnished with everything needed to cook or prepare most dishes.

The living room is fairly small for the capacity of the house, but it is certainly livable, since we spent most of our days at the beach or pool. The backyard storage shed had plenty of beach chairs and beach toys and two nice bikes. A beach umbrella would have been a big bonus, it only had an umbrella that fit a patio table. .

Access to the beach - the golf cart was a big bonus - the closest access required a great deal of walking, however, we parked the golf cart and a car in the public beach access parking and it was a shorter walk. Always found a place to set up on the beach, but it does fill up pretty quickly. Recommend getting to the beach in the morning.

Seacrest Dolphin Tour in Destin is a MUST DO!! It was only $25.00 per adult, Kids under 4 free. It was worth it!!

Word of Warning: If you are planning on going to pick up groceries on Saturday, be aware that WAL-MART (6 miles from the house) is a mad house Saturday afternoon/evening. It is absolutely crazy because everyone is there buying groceries for the week!! I would recommend ordering online from Publix (2 miles from house) and picking up or having them delivered.

The beach is absolutely beautiful. Clean and well maintained.

Two restaurants we would recommend - The Perfect Pig and Bayou Bill's. Both have happy hours which I would take advantage of, otherwise they are pretty expensive. From 5-6 at Perfect Pig and 4-6 at Bayou Bill, was buy one entree get one free. A great deal. We were not impressed with Goatfeathers just up the street from the house.

I don't usually write reviews after a vacation, but I was so impressed with everything about this vacation. Our family will make a point to visit the area and stay at Cobia Cottage again. Communication with Robert, the owner, was fabulous. He communicated before and during our trip very promptly.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Plenty of room in the house for adults and kids. Access to the golf cart made for easy trips to the beach and pool although it's not a bad walk to either. Everyone hated to leave. We'll certainly consider staying here again.

Very nice place to stay. Convienantly located between Destin & Panama City.

  • 4 of 5

House was a very nice place to stay. Great area . If I would change anything . I would get rid of pine needles in backyard, they seemed to dirty up floors in house even with a doormat. Everything else was great. Very roomy. Would stay here again

Great house - My family enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental property and the house was just as described! The living room was a little cramped with 7 adults trying to watch tv. It was an easy walk to the beach and pool, but the golf cart came in handy when taking beach chairs, coolers, etc. The house was easy to find and was at a great location. Good proximity to stores and local restaurants. I should have done more homework and realized that a drive to PCB was necessary for attractions such as miniature golf and deep sea fishing. The owner Robert was quick to respond with answers to our questions. Overall, my family really enjoyed our stay at Cobia Cottage.
