Great location and great value! Loved the gated community!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect sized beach cottage for our large family and we absolutely loved the gated community. Furnishings were more than adequate for our stay and the beds/couches were very comfortable. It was nice not having to worry about lots of traffic going by and the short walk to the beach was pleasant. Free beach service was awesome too, very nice people! Only thing I would recommend would be either deep cleaning the carpets or upgrading to more tile throughout the cottage.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the comment on the carpet. The owners have plans to remove that soon and replace with some hard flooring. Thanks for staying with us!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Just like home away from home! Excellent location! Not far from the beach at all! And the walk is a lovely little walk down a path. No roads to cross and no traffic to worry about! Will most definitely be staying in this location again if not the same house! We all loved it! Very spacious as well.

Saved the trip!

  • 5 of 5

Weather was horrible but the home really did save our vacation. Very roomy and comfortable. It was 10 of us. One bed was never used. Pool right behind the building. Beach a short stroll away. No street crossing. Loved the fact that we could have visitors as it was a multi family trip with us scattered hither and yon. Highly recommend.

Quality all around!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived 12/23/15 to a property that was like home. Its roomy, its comfortable and in one of Miramar Beach's best locations. We had to cut our 2 month snowbird vacation short due to a death in the family but Cheryl and the owners were compassionate and worked around our situation.

Cheryl was very responsive and accessible by phone, text and email. On the couple occasions when we needed assistance she was quick to respond. Take comfort in renting this wonderful cottage home. Know you are in good hands. We will be back.

All we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! The home was just as it looks in pictures and everything that is listed was in the home! We loved the gated community and very short walk to the beach! The pool right outside the home was a hit with the kids! We will definitely look for this home on our return trip.
