Backwards Crab -
“Backwards Crab” is a three bedroom, three bathroom vacation home that can accommodate up to 9 lucky guests! It offers over 1,500 square feet of space so there is plenty of room for the entire family. The main living area of this property is well dressed with beachy themed decor giving the home a unique Floridian flare. A large wraparound couch faces a wall-mounted flat screen TV and the kitchen/dining area is more than ample to serve your family's needs. The master bedroom houses a large King size bed, a full bath en suite, and a door allowing for exterior access. A Queen guest bedroom is located on the first floor which also has a full bath en suite. A third bedroom is situated on the second floor of the home that is great for the kids since it includes a twin bed along with two bunks in nautical blue and white attire. This room has access to a full hall bath that doubles as a convenient powder room. In addition, each bedroom has its own private porch balcony to enjoy good conversation and the fresh air breezes.
The Gulfside Cottages development is an exclusively private, walled in residential community that is indeed “gulf side” nestled near the lustrous, sugar sand shore. It is a place out of time and space due its architectural ambiance. Houses have white picket fences, columned front porches, tin roofs and a newly constructed version of an old Florida style look. It is the type of place where friends may gather on the porch to enjoy the gulf breezes, sipping on some sweet lemonade, waiting for the brownies to bake. Nowadays, it may be that the same folk visiting on the front porch are sipping frozen Margaritas and waiting for the nachos to be ready!
Gulfside Cottages is a combo of two and three story, nostalgic abodes that will feel like your own special home away from home. The beach with its views of jewel toned waters, for which The Emerald Coast is famous for, is only a short walk away down the private boardwalk. The community itself has a lovely swimming pool for residents and visitors alike. It is a double squared pool and surrounded by a sunny patio that is accented with decorative arbors as well as a number of palm trees. Within minutes you may go from enjoying the fresh water here or take a salty plunge into the translucent glorious gulf which itself is often swimming pool clear. Both are popular but on the beach you may build a white quartz crystal sandcastle with the kids, take a leisurely walk or watch the dolphin frolic and play in the distance.
