About the Property

4 BR/3 BA, 3 story on the Emerald Coast with all the comforts of home!

This sophisticated beach retreat is tastefully decorated in off whites and beautiful ocean blues and is ideally situated in Old Florida Village. 'Sister' of Lazy Lizards, VRBO #130858, also in Old Florida Village, enjoys the same floor plan. You will be enchanted by the lush landscaping, swaying palm trees and white picket fences of OFV...this home is tucked away in a more private corner of the community, a short walk to the largest of two pools and short stroll to the sugar white beaches of Santa Rosa Beach on Florida's Emerald Coast, where easy beach access is available. Your children will love the fenced and newly sodded backyard... and you will love morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and cool coastal breezes on any of our 3 porches.

She Crab Cottage is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, three story cottage that comfortably sleeps eight-ten.

It features an open floor plan ideal for entertaining and spending time with family and friends. The first floor includes an open kitchen/living/dining room with a deck for outdoor relaxing and a gorgeous large yard, a full bath with shower, as well as a Queen bedroom with flat screen TV and its own private balcony. The well-appointed kitchen, with granite countertops and a fabulous DEEP sink, provides all the conveniences of home in a bright and relaxing atmosphere. The second floor offers a Master Suite with a Queen bed, flat screen TV, and recently renovated full bath with large, tiled shower, bidet, granite countertop and a private sitting area for peaceful reading or relaxation. This floor also features the third bedroom, a Queen, with bath, flat screen TV and private balcony. The washer/dryer are located on this floor, too. The Third floor Tower room features the 4th bedroom and has 2 Double/Full beds and flat screen TV.

No convenience has been overlooked in this beautifully decorated home. High speed internet access and free wifi allows our guests to work out of the home if they so choose.

An extensive bike path from San Destin through Seaside, and State Park Trails are just outside the entrance to Old Florida Village.

We're located close to Seaside, Blue Mountain, Grayton Beach and Gulf Place where you can explore fabulous art galleries, an array of funky shops, and also experience live theatre, outdoor music and movies, and world class dining. It's only a 10 minute drive to Silver Sands, the South's largest Outlet mall, and 30 minutes to both Destin Commons Mall (to the West) and Pier Park, Panama City's newest entertainment mall (to the East).

We welcome you to She Crab Cottage, decorated, loved and cared for lovingly as a second home. Please come make it your home away from home.

Old Florida Village is located on the scenic '30-A Corridor' along the well known and recognized sugar white sands of Santa Rosa Beach. I recommend you google and learn about all the charm of 30a! It is like nothing else in Florida.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I live in Atlanta but have been loyal visitors to Santa Rosa beach for over 30 years. I have watched the area grow and become more and more fabulous while enjoying having a home in Old Florida Village since 2006 (Lazy Lizards VRBO # 130858) and now look forward to sharing She Crab Cottage!

Why the Owner Chose Santa Rosa Beach, FL, USA:
Santa Rosa Beach is special! The entire 30-A corridor is unlike most other parts of Florida....from the charming communities to the well thought out dining, shopping and of course, the sugar white beaches. Old Florida Village is a small and charming community of only 75 homes and 2 swimming pools. Nestled right on 30-A, it is close to neighboring communities, shopping and the is a beautifully landscaped community that is very popular with renters.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
She Crab Cottage is furnished, decorated and maintained as a second home vs. a typical rental property. Check reviews and photos of my other home in Old Florida Village, 'Lazy Lizards', VRBO# 130858, as the floor plans are identical and will give you a sense of our style and commitment to a truly great rental experience!
