About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Cottage is one block or about 200 yards from the kind of wide, white sand beach the Florida panhandle is famous for.

Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? If you want elaborate landscaping, my cottage is not the best for you. The cottage does have a nice open air porch in the front.

Now if you want a home that is on the beach, my cottage is not quite there, yet. Maybe, with global warming, it will be, soon.

Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.

Maximum capacity is 7 or 8 with a king in master, 2 twins in middle bedroom and bunkbed in front bedroom with full on bottom and twin on top.

Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in and ready for your dog to roam free or run around in circles, endlessly chasing it's tail.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy the fresh breeze, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.

You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

The beach a short walk down the street is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

About Mark Barnhart

I feel responsible to ensure you enjoy your visit when you stay at my vacation rental. I desire to have a home where fond memories are created to last a lifetime.

Mark Barnhart purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Mark Barnhart chose Florida Main North West

Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! .

Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

What makes this cottage unique

Beach chairs, wagon, 3 beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.

Very nice house and area, met our needs.

We had a problem with the kitchen light, but on contacting the owner arrangements were made to have a repairman fix it promptly. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Another GREAT Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we spent a week in this clean, beautiful, well stocked beach cottage. Mark is a pleasure to deal with and his cottage is awesome. This was our 2nd year staying here and the weather was simply amazing. I would recommend this cottage to anyone (I have to lots of people) and will for sure be back. It's so quiet and peaceful!!!

Great getaway ❤️🐶❤️

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks here and this house was perfect! I have 2 smaller size lab mixes who loved the fenced back yard and twice daily walks to the beach. House is neat and clean and Mark was great to deal with. Would definitely book again!

Reservations for winter 2017

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this to encourage anyone who is looking for a great location, clean house and helpful owner, to choose this house. Although we made reservations , and had to cancel, Mark resolved our return deposit in a very professional manner, and we hope to work with him in the future. Enjoy the Forgotten Coast in this great house. I'm a travel agent, and research places diligently-you won't be disappointed!

Loved this Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five and my dog loved this little cottage! Everything was provided down to toys for the kids. We saved tons of space in the car because we didn't have to bring any beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. for our stay. There were also three different wagons as well.
