At Wish You Were Here, spend the day at the beach, it's only 400 steps from the front door via our community's private beach access! When you've had enough sand and surf, it's an easy transition to fun in the large 7500 sq ft pool with heated spa that anchors our community. Relax with a beverage on the huge covered porch nestled among the native trees while the steaks are sizzling on the Ducane Weber gas grill.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage sleeps 7 comfortably. The spacious King master suite has an ensuite bath, 32' Wifi -enabled flat screen TV, and tons of storage in the closet. The Queen bedroom has a 29' Wifi-enabled flat screen TV and plenty of closet space. The Bunkbed room has a twin bunkbed with a pull-out trundle.

Wish You Were Here features a spacious open living plan. The state-of-the-art entertainment center in the living room includes a 50' flat screen TV, and internet ready DVD player which already has access to Netflix so the family can instantly choose from hundreds of movies and TV titles at no additional cost. Hook up your MP3 to the Onkyo receiver system and listen to your favorite music with crisp clarity through the Bose speakers. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances with updated fridge and dishwasher! Brew a fresh cup of copy with Keurig coffee maker, or if you prefer use the traditional style coffee maker. The dining table seats eight - enjoy long family dinners here or a quick snack at the kitchen bar where there are 4 more chairs.

Laundry time's a breeze with the full-size Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer.

Hop on one of the cottage's four brand new all aluminum cruiser bikes and breeze down the famous scenic 30-A walking/biking path that hugs the Gulf of Mexico for 19 miles - it passes right in front of our community! Explore the funky art shops, eclectic clothing stores, and incredible variety of restaurants and bars in Seacrest, Rosemary Beach, Seaside, and all along 30-A.

About Faheem & Cissy Khan

We are a family of 4 from Lewisville, TX. We have been coming to 30A for over 10 years...we have been lucky to visit many beaches around the world, and there's truly no place like this...miles and miles of sugar white sand and emerald green to turquoise water. Please call us directly at (214)802-9331for any questions regarding our beach cottage.

Faheem & Cissy Khan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Faheem & Cissy Khan chose Seacrest

Wish You Were Here is in a small community, and our house is only 400 steps to the beach! We fell in love with the 'Florida cottage' architecture with the tin roof and huge shady porch. There's something special about rain on a tin roof, and on breezy nights we can sit on the porch and hear the waves crashing on the beach.

We love the location of our house. It's about 1.5 miles east to the Rosemary Beach town square - we ride bikes to the Sunday Farmer's Market and our kids walk or ride bikes there to get a Fro-Yo and hook up with friends they've met on the beach. About the same distance west is the brand new, very unique venue "The Hub" - several casual dining choices and multiple "hang-out" spaces for watching sports events and live music. We are about 6 miles from Seaside - a longer bike ride but a great trade-off for a 'snack' from on of the food trucks there!

Our area of 30A is less populated and less dense than Rosemary Beach and Seaside. We love that the beach never feels 'crowded', and the kids love that crowds are a just a stroll away.

What makes this cottage unique

We have poured our hearts into making Wish You Were Here a beautiful and comfortable vacation home. We know there are lots of choices in our area. We think the casual, fun elegance of Wish You Were Here - from the soothing, sophisticated colors to the unique artwork and furniture pieces is perfect for relaxing, enjoying the beautiful area, and creating special memories.

Wish We Were Here Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean and roomy. We love the back porch and it felt we were in the woods not at the beach. We rode bikes to Albs and Rosemary Beach. We definitely would come back.

Great place to stay with your family!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to stay for your beach vacation. House nicely decorated with beach decor and up to date ammenities. Plenty of space for a family of 4-6. Lovely porch. Cozy couch. Comfy beds. Easy short walk to the beach. Owners very kind and allow you to use their bikes which is a nice perk! Easy bike ride to shops and eats at Alys, Rosemary, and Seacrest. We’d stay there again!

Great Cottage! Convenient, Well Decorated, And Very Functional!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our week-long stay at the cottage to wind down the summer!

Our family enjoyed the proximity to the beach which is only a couple of minutes away. The cottage is also ideally situated in the relation to the pool. It is the second or third house on the path from the pool making it close enough but not right on top of it.

The house was well equipped, had all essentials and enough paper products to get us started. There is a Publix about 10 minutes away to stock up on groceries and other needs.

Proximity to nearby communities of Seacrest, Alys Beach, and Rosemary Beach comes in handy. Destin's only about 40 minutes away. Overall, a great experience!

The house was in excellent condition, and had everything we could possibly need. It was like a home away from home. The beach and pool are very nice and clean. Overall great experience.
