Old Florida Village is a quaint neighborhood of 75 cottage style homes on a quiet loop just a few yards north of 30A and the beach. This is just a short walk (0.5miles) to the beach or you can drive or ride a bike to beach access..

“Hold Your Seahorses”... Hey!, this is a great place to stay! The house is in the middle of Old Florida village just yards from one of the two swimming pools. The location is very quiet with a pond and undeveloped wetland behind the house. The house has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom with queen bed and private bath is quietly located in the rear of the house. Blue heron and snowy egrets are frequent visitors to the pond where turtles bask in the sun. You can also hear frogs and the roar of the surf at night. There is a queen guest room and a third bedroom with twin over full beds. The house is colorful, light and airy. Each bedroom has a TV, DVD player, nightstands and a dresser. A gas BBQ grill is also provided for your convenience.

On the second floor you will find the living room, dining room and the kitchen along with the balcony overlooking the quiet pond and wetland. This balcony is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast. A colorful guest bedroom with queen bed is on the second floor and has a private balcony, dresser, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player and amenities. The stairwell to the second floor is colorfully decorated with bright beach paintings. The living room with HD-TV/entertainment center/Blu-Ray /DVD Player is a great place for all to congregate and enjoy the evening of dining and games.

On the first floor, you'll find the colorful entrance way and two bedrooms. The master bedroom is quietly located in the rear of the house with a private porch overlooking the pond and wetland. The master is tastefully decorated with queen bed, dresser, chair, side tables, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD Player, amenities and private bath with his and her closets. The second bedroom on the first floor has Twin over Full beds and an extra twin mattress. This second bedroom also has a private full bath and balcony. The washer/dryer is on the first floor.

For your beach fun we have 6 beach chairs, 3 umbrellas, kid toys, water toys and a handy wagon to get them all to the beach. Bring your sun screen!

Bring your bikes or rent them nearby at Gulf Place. You can explore the 20-mile-long bike/walking trail, nature preserves and 11 dune lakes. The bike path is close-by along scenic 30-A. Several shops and restaurants are within walking or biking distance as is Goatfeathers Restaurant & Seafood Market. The shops, restaurants and seasonal events of Gulf Place Resort are just half a mile to the west and accessible via the bike/walking trail.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live and work in Atlanta. Sharon is a Registered Nurse and Rick is in Data Processing. We have been vacationing in South Walton since 2006 and love it. We spend as much time as we can at the beach. We Kayak, fish, walk and relax at the beach. We enjoy nature and the great weather. We love 'Hold Your Seahorses' and have enjoyed making the cottage fun and comfortable for you as well as ourselves, our kids and grand-kids.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
We have stayed at many houses in Santa Rosa Beach since 2006 and we have loved it very much. This is our choice destination for vacations and family get-togethers. Purchasing this home in Old Florida Village was an easy decision.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Three of the main reasons we love our cottage. (1) We relax and enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Enjoying coffee on the porch overlooking Hidden Lake and the birds is delightful. (2) We enjoy the beach very much. The beach during the day is delightful and walking to the beach for the sunset is a real pleasure. (3) We enjoy kayaking in the lakes, rivers and the ocean. A great pleasure is paddling at Grayton Beach just three miles east on 30A.
