*STARFISH AND COFFEE* in Santa Rosa Beach
With starfish in the windows and its coffee color, this large Old Florida Village home conjures up a funky, fun Prince song - Starfish & Coffee! Fun, fun, fun (and relaxation) is what you'll find at the beach, along 30A, and in the sanctuary of our beach home. We genuinely hope Starfish & Coffee will become a cherished part of your vacation adventures for years to come.
Is BIG! And Private! With 2200 sq. ft., the house is one of the largest in Old Florida Village and located on a large, tucked-away lot that offers privacy and nature views. Each bedroom has extra space, making it nice to spend time there - get that personal R&R on your family vacation. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking and serving full meals (if you choose!).
There are 3 bedrooms plus a 3rd story loft that is great for kids or singles to have their own space.
Starfish & Coffee sleeps 10 in beds:
2 Kings (both 2nd floor bedrooms)
1 Queen (first floor bedroom)
2 Twin bunk beds (4 single beds) in the loft
*Each bedroom is equipped with a TV and DVD player.
*Quality bed linens, bath towels (2/person) and beach towels (1/person) are provided.
*Each bedroom has room for a pack-n-play or crib.
EXTRAS, EXTRAS, READ ALL ABOUT THEM:
We like kids and grandparents (and parents too) and try to make travelling easy! The house is equipped with kid essentials including a high chair, baby gates, a pack-n-play with sheets, BPA-free kid's dinnerware, beach and home toys, and a Wii game system. For anyone needing one-floor living, we have a first floor bedroom with a full bath. Kids will enjoy their personal space in the 3rd floor tower room (the pirate's cove).

GO, SEE, DO:
A perfect trip to Old Florida Village includes bike rentals from Big Daddy's Bike Shop (just up the street or home delivery!), mid-morning coffee and family movie night at Gulf Place, long beach days and dinner at The Red Bar and Stinky's Fish Camp (much more delicious than the name implies!). We love the beach and love to explore the area, finding new adventures to recommend for our visitors.
In addition to wonderful beaches, Scenic 30A offers hiking, biking, kayaking, and paddle boarding in nearby Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Grayton Beach State Park and Deer Lake State Park. The small communities along 30A, such as Gulf Place, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seacrest, and Rosemary Beach offer charming year-round family events, dining, and boutique shopping. This area is great for casual, laid-back beach vacations or as a beautiful setting for your special events and celebrations.
Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is just around the corner - great for girls or guys long weekends! With just a bit of driving along 30A or into the Sandestin area, you can golf a different course each day. If starting or keeping a fitness routine is your thing, the running and biking path along 30A (18-mile Timpoochee Trail) or in the state parks is a gorgeous, nature-lovers setting! This is also a great home and community for artists, writers and crafty folks to find quiet and inspiration.
Hwy 98 is less than 5 driving minutes away and provides lots of dining and shopping and cinemas at Grand Boulevard, Baytowne Wharf, Sandestin, Miramar Beach, and Destin. Or head the other way on Hwy 98 and be in Panama City Beach in 20 minutes. Here you'll find the new international airport, boat tours, kid fun, restaurants, shopping. And did we mention the awe-inspiring sugar white sand and emerald water beaches that we can't get enough of?
We take pride in making Starfish & Coffee a comfortable, convenient, touches-of-luxury home you won't want to leave!
