About Larry Mixon

The owner is a local and wanted a an old style cottage on the west end so my children and guests can experience the beach like he did 40 years ago.

Larry Mixon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Larry Mixon chose Florida

This Laguna neighborhood actually owns the beach front, 3/4 of a mile. It may be built on some day but not in my lifetime.

What makes this cottage unique

Key West colors, walking distance to everything you need, unique neighborhood. Sit on the front porch swing and gaze at the Gulf.

Charming Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this charming little beach cottage for the week of the 4th of July 2017. We have 2 teenage boys and they shared a small room with twin beds. The room was plenty big enough for the guys to have the things spread out the way the wanted, but certainly not spacious! But we weren't planning on them spending time in their rooms! That is not what this trip was about. The room my husband and I shared was larger and we had a queen sized bed. It was pretty comfortable and the air conditioner did a great job with keeping up with the blistering July heat! We loved the front porch with the porch swing for the evenings after the sun went down. The breeze was wonderful! The kitchen was small, but functional. I didn't cook anything, but we had snacks and drinks and used the microwave a few times. Lots of things included, to get you started that we discovered like coffee, filters, spices, salt, pepper and many other things that we were worried that we would have to stock in a house. The back porch had a small laundry area that worked well and a few beach chairs and beach toys that we were happy to use. Loved the wagon! We used that every day! There was even a cooler! My son loved the outdoor shower and refused to shower inside the entire week. The neighbors seemed to be mostly locals and were all friendly to us. They all made a point to speak to us. We will be back!

Beautiful house with awesome front porch area. Only a brisk walk away from the beach and close to an amazing place to eat (Thomas donuts)! Larry was a pleasure, and look forward to renting from him again.

Great for a vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage was perfect for my family of 5. We did borrow an air mattress from family that drove from Georgia to accomadate all of us, since couch is not a comfortable piece of furniture to be sleeping on. Other than that the cottage had pretty much everything we could need. Love the fact that there was a washer and dryer to use. Owner responded promptly to address any concern we may have had. I love being able to rent a stand alone property especially with children, makes me be able to relax more k owing there isn't someone wall to wall with us or above or under that my children may disturb with noise. Will definitely look to rent again if we come back to the area.
