About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This beach house is the owners second home who love sharing it with their guests throughout the year. There are updates constantly as they strive to maintain a clean, fresh and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the beachfront experience.

The home offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 Baths and sleeps 6. It is one of the few free standing single cottages remaining on the Gulf Coast! The large wooden deck overlooking the gulf is one of its most outstanding features and is perfect for morning coffee with the sunrise and romantic dinners with the sunset; as well as a great place to eat a casual lunch.

The Seaside cottage is a reflection of the owners laid-back take on design which makes for a comfortable beach vacation. There are many personal design choices that separate it from the typical rental condo. All the comfy beds are outfitted with 600 thread-count sheets and have crisp new quilts. Fresh, new towels are added each year to both bathrooms.

There is a 2-car carport underneath the living space with a staircase leading up to the first level. On the main floor, the living area has glass doors and windows all facing the gulf, offering incredible views. The comfortable seating faces an entertainment center equipped with a 40" HD TV with digital cable, DVD player, and stereo system; wireless internet connection is also provided. In addition, a half bath and laundry closet are off the entry hall.

Three bedrooms are on the upstairs level, the master has a king 5-star Marriott mattress, a large private bath including a tiled shower with frameless glass enclosure and a large vanity with marble countertop and drawer storage. A cozy bay window with sitting area has a panoramic view of the gulf and has a comfy chair and ottoman perfect for relaxing and reading on a day you may not want to be on the beach. A queen bed (the same 5-star Marriott mattress) occupies the second bedroom. There is also a nice dressing table/vanity to give that bedroom a space in which to sit for applying makeup or drying your hair. The third bedroom has two XL twin beds with the same 5-star Marriott mattresses. These 2 bedrooms share a nice hall bath with a tiled shower and a frameless glass enclosure. In addition, both full bathrooms are provided with a luxury bar soap. Hairdryers are also furnished.

A boardwalk over the protected dunes takes you straight to the beach just a few steps away. We offer beach chairs and beach towels for your convenience.

Enjoy the Molokai pool across the street which went through a total renovation in April 2014, or try your luck at fishing off the Molokai dock which is on Ole River. There is also a sitting area with benches overlooking the water. All the right ingredients to make this the perfect vacation spot for you to come year after year!

Maximum occupancy is 6 persons. We require at least a one-week stay; NO EXCEPTIONS! No dogs, No smoking and No Renters under the age of 25 without an Adult.

About Leslie Hay

We are retired and living the dream!

Leslie Hay purchased this house in 2011

Why Leslie Hay chose Florida Main North West

My husband and I have been coming to Perdido Key for many years and have finally realized our dream of owning a property on the beach. We love sharing it with our friends and family and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Being golfers, we enjoy having a choice of golf courses nearby. There are lots of wonderful shops and restaurants and water sports whenever you desire. Also, the shrimp festival is a must! Last, but not least, if you love the beach, it doesn't get any better than this!

Would come back again and again

  • 5 of 5

Leslie and her home were so accommodating. She could be reached at anytime and she thought of everything when it comes to stocking and furnishing her place. The proximity to the beach was perfect. The pool was actually much closer than we had anticipated. Even the pier on that side of the bay was great for my husband to fish from. Enjoyed great meals all three nights we ate out including Fishermans Corner, Cobalt and The Gulf. Will definitely come back

GREAT house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay and LOVED it! The house was set up really well to make arrival easy. Super comfy beds!! The location was perfect...private but yet close to everything. It's also close to several state parks for additional exploring. We saw dolphins off the house deck several mornings and the Blue Angels flew overhead close to the beach- the kids went nuts :) We would stay here again! Thank you Leslie!!

My husband and I have a vacation home and can appreciate a good rental property when we experience one. The property is right on the beach so we had quick access. The house was well stocked, with a homey feel, well decorated. We had a wonderful vacation and will definitely look to stay there again.

Quiet, Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Love this place. Love that the owner manages the property herself. Leslie was a joy to deal with. This home was immaculate. Nice decor, finishes, and a well-stocked kitchen. Not with cheap stuff either. We spent every morning on the deck overlooking the ocean drinking coffee. Sooo relaxing and peaceful!!! Wish I could spend every morning waking up to that!! Location was great. We felt like we had the beach all to ourselves. Would definitely rent again. Thank you Leslie for sharing this place!!!
