About Melinda Rainey

We are a retired couple that have lived in Missouri all of our lives and love to spend time at our vacation home in Inlet Beach, Florida. We have seven children and lots of grandchildren, all of whom love the beach as much as we do.

Melinda Rainey purchased this house in 1976

Why Melinda Rainey chose Beaches of South Walton

We purchased the property in the seventies and built the house in 1978. We updated and remodeled both inside and outside four years ago.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things to do when spending time at our vacation home is sitting on the covered porch in the morning, drinking coffee and watching the dolphins.

Kudos to the owners and their housekeeping!

  • 5 of 5

The Millington Cottage was the perfect accommodation with a spectacular ocean view and the best beach access. The description of the cottage is spot on and more. Usually, our family is ready to return home after a week of fun in the sun but it was difficult leaving this new found treasure. The owners and housekeeping have maintained the Millington at an A+, 5 star level!!!! We will definitely be back to this lovely and relaxing spot.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Millington Cottage. The house was clean, comfy, and was perfect for my family of 8. The kitchen had anything you would need and the decks were wonderful! We spent most our time out there. My family also loved the shuffleboard downstairs. This be a house certainly has anything and everything you need to make the most of the beach.

The location was by far the best of all our trips down to the Panhandle. Destin and old 30A was easy to get to as well as exciting Panama City! The grocery store was minutes away.

The best part of our stay by far was the beach. It was beyond beautiful. You are literally on the beach, it is amazing! We saw dolphins everyday as well as sea turtles, sting rays, and pretty fish and shells. We snorkled everyday and found some great treasures.

This was the best beach vacation I've had and I highly recommend Millington Cottage for your next trip to the beach.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The Millington Cottage absolutely exceeded our expections! Not only is it close to everything, Rosemary Beach, Panama City, Destin, but it is ON THE SAND! You have incredible views from every spot in the house, and the beach is your backyard! When I posted pictures on social media, everyone wanted to know where I was that had such incredible beach access! And, there was virtually no one around, so it was like having our own private beach! The house is well maintained, and the kitchen and bathrooms were fully stocked! There are so many areas to sit and relax, while enjoying the beach view. We loved the balcony, and also enjoyed many meals on the wonderful table that was under the house, it was shady, breezy, and best of all right on the beach, incredible!!! Owners were fabulous to work with too! Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our family of 5 and made for an incredible vacation. The home is just as pictured and described. We found Melinda to be very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.

We loved the fact that you step right off the back deck onto the beach. (we also enjoyed the fact that the beach wasn't crowded). The deck was amazing and absolutely perfect for morning coffee and afternoon thunderstorms.

We took our bikes and rode into rosemary beach (1.25 miles) several times, enjoying the farmers market, the sugar shack, and movies on the west green. We also rode to seacrest for the wednesday evening concert and to Alys Beach for morning donuts. We enjoyed the close proximity to seaside, making several short (9 mile) drives for dinner and shopping.

This home is an overall great value when compared to surrounding properties and we will definitely be back.
