Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Classic Florida beach cottage tastefully decorated, beautifully updated. This 3 bed / 2 bath house is less than 300 ft to the white sandy beach! It is located on the beachside of Hwy. 98 so NO CROSSING THE HIGHWAY to get to the beach. Enjoy gulf views and ocean breezes from the screened porch and covered patio.

The kitchen boasts all stainless steel appliances, gorgeous granite countertops and is fully stocked with everything you need to cook meals if you so desire. We also have both a gas and charcoal grill available for your use. The house is decorated with comfortable, casual, coastal furnishings. There are two queen beds and one set of bunk beds. (Linens and beach towels provided.)

And after an 'exhausting' day at the beach or a successful afternoon of fishing you will enjoy showering in the enclosed outdoor shower (hot and cold water). There is also plenty of room to park a boat and/or trailer. The large yard is well kept and grassy perfect for the kids.

The house also has Wi-Fi.

It is an easy stroll down to the beach. The beach at this area is nice and wide with lots of room on the white sand. The pier, canal, marina, city boat ramp and one of our favorites, the Shell Shack (for super fresh seafood) are all really close. It is a perfect location to enjoy all that Mexico Beach has to offer!

If you are looking for a charming, clean, private home to rent that has newer, updated furnishings...this is the beach house for you! The atmosphere is relaxing and laid-back. No doubt you and your family will make loads of great memories!

About Chrystina

This house had been our primary residence for the past five years. So when we renovated it about four years ago we did it to suit our taste. We love the beach, boating and fishing and wanted our house to reflect the casual yet simple lifesyle that we enjoy at the beach. We only recently moved after the birth of our first child to be closer to my husband's work. We miss sitting on the porch nightly enjoying the ocean breeze but are excited to share our cottage with others. We are very proud of our beach house and take pride in keeping it maintained. We hope our guests will love it as much as we do!

Chrystina purchased this cottage in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Chrystina,



Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at your beach house! It was perfect. Our group of friends have been going to the beach twice a year for 13 years and your house was the cleanest and best maintained we have ever stayed in. Thank you and your family for making it so nice for us beach lovers.

Annual Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every year we try to find a place on The Gulf of Mexico to vacation. Yes we have had some times when tropical weather got into the way. This year we decided on Mexico Beach having sped through like 15 years ago. This rental property was great and just perfect. It was close to the beach (three doors down I believe). And like three doors away in the other direction from a great neighborhood restaurant. The older key locks where interesting but took a day or say to get the hang of how they worked. I guess part of the charm of an older house. Don't get me wrong the house was beautiful inside. Their was an issue with a washer in the master bedroom shower. Not a big issue but a quick call and the owner said it should be fixed within the next day hopefully. Our time was brief so hopefully this was corrected shortly after we left. Again we where very pleased with everything and the outside hot and cold shower was awesome. So if you asked would we stay here again if given the chance I would say yes. So next time you're by Mexico Beach give this place a try. Minor issues but not a surprise.

Cute and quaint Florida cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property was comfortable and clean. Walk to beach was fine, but did miss being beach-front. We loved the hot/cold outdoor shower! And with 5 adults, we never were short of hot water either.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little cottage. The kitchen is fabulous although the silverware is a little funky and additional glassware would be nice (one size doesn't fit all). The best part of the cottage, besides the close proximity to the beach, is the screened porch. We thoroughly enjoyed that! A couple of cons - the overhead lighting left a lot to be desired and, really, no door on the master bath! Looked like an ideal spot for a sliding door. Also, forget your electric toothbrush, there are no outlets in the bathrooms. That being said, would we rent again? Yes!

Nice beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The cottage was nice and very convenient to the beach. It's the 4th house from the beach. We brought our dogs and had to drive over to the dog friendly beaches if we wanted them with us, but they were only minutes away.

If you get a chance, drive down to eat at Indian Pass Raw Bar - very cool and unique! Toucan's is a nice place to watch the sunset.

We wanted a quiet & relaxing beach vacation and that's exactly what we got!
