Year Purchased: 2001

About: Tom, Patty & Chase Schoelkopf of Germantown Tennessee

Why Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
During a business trip to the Emerald Coast we fell in love with the area. We chose Old Florida Cottages because of the family atmosphere and the close proximity to the beach with the magnificent gulfviews, especially from the house's tower room. The absence of high rise units in the area keeps the beautiful beaches uncrowded. DreamCatcher Cottage is decorated and furnished more as a second home than just a rental property. The house is filled with whimsical local art.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We always enjoy the miles of white sand and beautiful sunsets while at DreamCatcher. Many of the activities we enjoy are all within a short walk of the house. * Great seafood store next door – Goatfeathers * Nine restaurants * Bike path along 30A * Bike trails through state parks * Boutiques and art galleries
