This cozy, whimsical, PUP FRIENDLY, island style cottage is located in the enormously popular, small beach side community of Old Florida Cottages on the south side of Scenic Hwy 30A. There are no roads to cross going to the beach...which is only 200 yards away .Or ,simply step out the back door and walk TEN easy steps to the newly renovated pool and picnic area.
This tropical home is perfect for a small family or two couples. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with private bath and balcony. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed with private bath and balcony. Both have flat screen cable TVs. For your convenience, each bath has a wall mounted hairdryer. (Both beds have quality firm, pillow top mattresses for extra sleeping comfort.) Upstairs balconies have deep hammocks that invite you to nap daily. And, acclaimed juried artist, Tim McAllister, has created - just for Mellow Yellow - an awesome Dolphin underwater viewing mural on the upstairs landing that will mesmerize you, and, bring you a sense of calm and peace. His art can also be found in other areas of the house and his efforts have truly contributed to the uniqueness of this fun, wonderfully comfortable, home. Children love Mellow Yellow!
The first floor has an open plan with front and back porches. The living room - which has art/decor reflecting the feel of a rain forest - has a queen sleeper sofa and a flat screen color TV with DVD/Radio. There is also a CD/tape player for your enjoyment. The dining room has an oval table that will comfortably seat six. Four adjacent bar stools allow you further seating. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen makes meal prep a breeze. Whip up a batch of margaritas in the blender to sip while watching the sunset. Or, how about a 'cheeseburger in paradise' concocted on your own grill on the back porch? Free Wireless available.
Within walking distance are some great eateries, and delightful shopping, at Gulf Place. Scenic 30-A boasts wonderful restaurants, many of which have been written up - and rated well up there! - in Bon Appetite and other food periodicals. And Goat Feathers, just steps away, has a seafood market on site. Nearby you'll visit Silver Sands, the largest outlet mall in the States, Sandestin - with its great golf, boutique shopping, and even more fine restaurants - Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club located right on 30-A, Grayton Beach, Water Color, Rosemary beach, Alys Beach, and world renowned Seaside, where the Truman Story was filmed.
Experience beautiful beaches with sugar white sand that stays cool on the hottest day. I'm a panhandle native, lived and cruised on a 60' sailboat for well over a decade (many years in the islands) and I STILL LOVE THIS BEACH - with a passion! And, YES, our boardwalk has been repaired from the hurricanes and the beach and gulf are still deliciously inviting... :). The stroll to get there is easy for even small children. POOL IS HEATED FROM MARCH 1 - OCTOBER 31.
We would like to announce that we have a lovely, ADULT, sleek and very eclectic (NOT your ordinary beach rental), big sister home located in Dune Allen Beach, just a four minute drive away from Mellow Yellow...EUROPA! Very different from this cottage, but full of treats for the discerning guest...and dog friendly, too. Please see 'my other homes' noted below. ALSO, AVAILABLE VALMYA, A LOVELY, COMPLETELY RENOVATED HOME IN THE PRESTIGIOUS WATER MILL SECTION OF SOUTHAMPTON, NY.
A world traveled local who still feels Santa Rosa Beach/30-A is an exquisite destination.

Year 4 for our summer vacation here at Mellow Yellow. We can't get enough. Can't wait to come back next year.
We had a wonderful 9 days at Mellow Yellow. The house is nicely decorated, well-furnished and clean with a spacious dining and living room area. It is conveniently located with the community pool practically rights outside the back door (no need to cross any streets) and the beach is a short few minutes walk, without needing to cross any busy streets. I would definitely stay at Mellow Yellow again.
This house was perfect for our spring break vacation. It is beautifully and comfortably decorated and has everything we needed. The beach is a very short walk and there are plenty of places nearby to exercise our dogs. The pool is just steps away and the community is quiet and nicely landscaped. The house has great porches for relaxing, reading, or just napping. Shopping and restaurants are close, as are biking and hiking trails. Pat and her team are fantastic to work with. Storms from the previous week had affected the wifi operation, but I made one call and it was quickly fixed the same morning we arrived. We would definitely stay here again!
Just completed a 2 month winter stay at Mellow Yellow with our 2 mid-sized rescue doggies. The cottage is exactly as described in this listing. The stunningly beautiful beach is close by, and the Old Florida Cottages community is very quiet, intimate, and friendly to pets and people alike. There is a great selection of restaurants ranging from elegant to local charm within walking distance and and a huge selection within a short drive. The 30A area is absent the hustle and bustle of the more built up areas in the region -- just the way we like it. All the services you will need are a 5-10 minute drive away. Mellow Yellow met our needs perfectly and we would recommend it for a family vacation or seasonal snowbirds, especially those with pets.
We just returned from a wonderful 7 days in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach! Mellow Yellow was the perfect accomodations! The location was wonderful - a quick walk to the beach or 30A, footsteps from the pool, and shopping and dining within minutes are just few things that make this the perfect rental. The house was all that it was advertised to be. Our 7 year old loved the hammocks and our mini labradoodle loved going on walks around the neighborhood and was so happy to meet so many new puppy friends. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to stay in Santa Rosa Beach!!
Icing on the cake was working with Mrs. Pat. She was so sweet on the phone, easy to work with and very efficient with her correspondance!
My fiance's family was coming down to the beach for the week... We wanted to join, therefore we needed more room and a place where we could take his dog. Mellow Yellow was PERFECT!! Great little house with a short walk to the beach, view of the community pool and right in the back door of Goatfeathers. Everything we needed was right there, along with toys with which to play in the water. If you're looking for a relaxing, smaller house for a week of beach fun, this is a GREAT choice!!
Wow! The pictures do not do justice to this most amazing place! It was perfect. The bedrooms are spacious and immaculate. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to make a gourmet meal. The porches with hammocks are a nice touch. We rented bikes and rode the entire area. Beautiful! The beach is literally a few steps from the subdivision entrance. We walked and rode our bikes down - but it's really a very short walk. The beach access has clean public bathrooms right where you need them. We rented umbrellas and chairs easily for our lazy beach days. They come with full set-up.
The only minus - and it was minor - you must have a dog permit. We took our chances and received a verbal warning. Other than that, it's perfect. Plenty of linens. Plenty of everything you need. Oh, yes, and the pool is right outside the back door.
Fitness Centers, and chilling out, at festivals, concerts, wine tastings, and, often, these events are dog friendly so your buddy can accompany you! KINDLY CLEAN UP AFTER PETS EVERYWHERE YOU GO SO WE DOG PARENTS CAN CONTINUE TO HAVE THESE FAMILY MEMBERS JOIN US AT ALL POSSIBLE DESTINATIONS. A Pet Page is provided WITH RENTAL CONTRACT.***POOL IS HEATED 3/1 - 10/31***
