New Construction, 300 Yards to Beach, Walking Distance to Pier and Restaurants
We’d love to share our little slice of paradise with you in quiet, beautiful Mexico Beach! Sand By Me is a newly constructed, old Florida style home that is a relaxing getaway for families or couples. Our home has a peaceful, soothing vibe with classic, coastal decor. You won’t find any hand-me-downs from our grandma’s old house here! All of the quality furnishings and accessories were newly purchased for this home. A three-minute walk takes you to the widest part of Mexico Beach’s sugar white sandy beach. We are also walking distance from the city pier, the marina, and several restaurants, including Mango Marley’s, Castaway’s, and Tommy T’s.
The first floor has an open floor plan that makes spending time with family easy. We have a well-equipped kitchen where you’ll find everything you need to whip up dinner for your family as well as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a gas range. Or grill up some fresh fish on the gas grill on the back porch. The farmhouse-style dining table has ample seating for six. The living room has comfortable furniture, a fireplace, a 50-inch 4K smart TV, a Blu-Ray player, and surround sound, which is great for watching a movie on a rainy day. Enjoy your morning coffee on the screened-in porch.
Upstairs, all three bedrooms have Tuft and Needle mattresses, quality linens, 43-inch 4K smart TVs, Blu-Ray players, and black-out blinds so the early morning sun doesn’t disrupt your sleeping-in time. The master suite is a serene, romantic retreat with a king-size bed, a private bathroom with a jetted tub and a walk-in shower, and a balcony which is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sun set. On the Fourth of July, you’ll have an amazing view of Mexico Beach’s fireworks display from the balcony. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the third one has two full-size beds.
In case you don’t want to feel completely disconnected from the “real world,” we offer high-speed Wi-Fi, and the alarm clocks in the bedrooms have charging ports for your phones and other devices. The front and back doors have keyless entry so you won’t have to keep up with your keys at the beach.

About Cathi O'Tyson
Mark and Cathi O’Tyson live in Atlanta, GA, and when they aren’t busy running Mark’s commercial photography business, they love to stay at their new home in Mexico Beach. They hope to retire to Mexico Beach someday and live in Sand By Me full time.
Cathi O'Tyson purchased this House in 2017
Why Cathi O'Tyson chose Mexico Beach
It all started in 2011 when we visited Mexico Beach for the first time and found our little lot near the beach. Five years and many visits later, we started building our home, and we love it! The house reflects our own personal style, and we chose every detail ourselves. We hope you enjoy Sand By Me as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
It’s built like a personal home because we stay there frequently, so it truly is a home away from home. We’ve stayed at many vacation rentals, so when we built our own home we tried to include everything we wished we had when staying in other rental houses. You’ll find pretty much everything you need in the kitchen from a griddle for making pancakes to a juicer for squeezing fresh lime juice for your margaritas. The home is located a short three-minute walk from what we think is the best stretch of beach in the area. It is also walking distance from the city pier, and you can watch the fireworks display from the balcony.

Beautiful house! So relaxing!
We loved staying at "Sand By Me"! It was so beautiful and clean! Our stay was nice and relaxing. Thank you Cathi for being so great to work with!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for choosing our home for your visit to Mexico Beach!
We extended our Seaside vacation to go a little further east to Mexico Beach for 3 nights and stayed at this beautiful home. The house had everything we needed and was very clean and tidy. The entire home is decorated so nicely and looks like a model home. We felt very comfortable during our stay and the owners were also very helpful and easy to work with. I would stay here again without hesitation if/when we returned to the area.
Thanks so much for your review, and we're glad you had a great time. You're welcome back any time, so let us know when you're ready to come back to Mexico Beach!
The house is amazing and beautifully decorated. It's very spacious and had everything you could possibly need provided for you. The location was very nice, just a short walk to the beach. The owners are super nice and very attentive to your needs. Would definitely stay again!!!
Thanks for the review, Tamber! I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in Mexico Beach!
The property is AWESOME!!
My family enjoyed our time at Sand by me. The home is beautifully decorated with a Beach theme!! We used the grill and backyard for our evening meals and entertainment (corn hole toss game). Cathi and Mark have thought of everything to make your stay so enjoyable!
At the beach we used High Tide Beach Services for chairs and umbrella. They deliver, set up and take down daily, so convenient.
Would recommend to anyone going to Mexico Beach, it is absolutely the BEST place to stay!
Thanks so much for your review! We're so happy that you enjoyed our home and had a good time visiting with your family!
SandByMe was perfect for our girls getaway. The house is beautiful inside and out - plenty of room for five of us. Plus only a short 2-3 minute walk to the beach. Cathi was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
Thanks so much! I'm glad our home worked out well for your girls' weekend!
Beautiful! We loved staying at "Sand By Me"! We recommend it to anyone looking to visit the area!
This house has everything you need for a relaxing time with family and friends. The kitchen is well equipped and the decor is darling! We loved it! There were games as well which we really enjoyed! The walk to the beach was short and easy. I definitely recommend bringing a beach wagon to pull coolers, towels, etc. We used "No Worries Beach Service" who delivered umbrellas and chairs the day we arrived and picked them up on the last day. We were told to leave them at the edge of the dunes at the end of each day and they would be safe for the next day, which they were. I would recommend them also if you don't own your own.
All in all a wonderful experience!
Thank you Mark and Cathi!
Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad that No Worries worked out for you, and thanks for letting me know about your experience with them.
Sand By Me is 300 yards from the beach, two blocks from the Mexico Beach City Pier, four blocks from the marina, and walking distance to several restaurants, including Castaways, Mango Marley's, and the Fish House.
