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 Perdido Key

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!

We LOVED this beach house! It was absolutely perfect for our family of 4.

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is absolutely perfect in every sense. It is decorated so cute! My kids loved that all of the bedrooms were on the 2nd floor. The two smaller bedrooms have darkening shades which were amazing because my children slept in every day! My oldest son, who is 11, made mention several times during our week stay that this house was very homey and I would have to agree 100%. My husband loved that he did not have to be a pack mule on this beach vacation. So, when we went to the beach the first day, we set our umbrella up, pulled out our chairs we brought and we left them there all week. The beach is very quiet here with little traffic, so we felt very sure that it would be safe to do this. The beach is literally steps from the house which was simply amazing! I enjoyed sitting in these tall chairs pictured on the deck and reading a book while listening to the crashing waves and sounds of the seagulls. We would recommend this property to anyone and we hope to be able to come back again!

As always, this slice of heaven does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit and it is as nice as the first time. The furnishings, location, scenery and low key atmosphere is what keeps us coming back. All of the Molokai Villas are great but I would say this one is the best! Thanks again

Fabulous once again!

  • 5 of 5

After last year's amazing time, we decided to return to paradise once again for Girls' Trip 2017....and it did not disappoint. Molokai Villa A1 is the hidden jewel of the Gulf! Peace and quiet mixed with a beautiful beach and top notch cannot go wrong here. Perfect beach days mixed with our first ever baby sea turtle experience made this trip another one with memories to last a lifetime! Our cups runneth over...thank you, Molokai Villa A1 ❤️

My whole family loved it. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is stocked, and the view from the deck is nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Best Place on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great time at this lovely beach house. It was clean and incrediably well appointed that we felt like we were home. The beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking essentials. The view is incrediable and will be missed. We boiled four pounds of beautiful gulf coast shrimp, made crab cakes out of five pounds of lump crab, grilled steak, chicken and hotdogs....good food, good drinks, good music, much laughter with family and great memories.
