About Cheryl Foley

We bought our home pre-construction in the beautiful beachside neighborhood and have enjoyed it with our family for the past 10 years. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. We do live close by so addressing any requests that you have will be prompt and accommodating.

Cheryl Foley purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Cheryl Foley chose Santa Rosa Beach

We chose this property because we have lived in the area for 20 years. My husband immigrated here from Ireland 40 years ago and has never left the area. I was born and raised here and have always loved the beach and the many amenities this area offers.

What makes this cottage unique

We have especially enjoyed the neighborly feeling of the community. The fact that there is one entrance and designed in a circular fashion has allowed our family members and guests with children a safe area to ride bikes and go for walks. We often grill out by the pool while the children swim. A short walk to the beach allows us to set up for a day at the beach with bathrooms available at the beach access and just a short walk to the beach house if we need anything. We love to walk and the proximity to the paved walking/biking path provides a safe venue for exercise. Close proximity to restaurants and shops allows us to walk to shopping and meals.

Very clean and beautifu home. Had everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Went on a mom and daughter get away. We were looking for a relaxing and quiet get away. We got that at this beautiful home and the beach was so beautiful. Cheryl was wonderful to work with. We needed to change our dates and she was very understanding and accommodating. We can't wait to go back next year.

The house was perfect for this group of 3 families with 3 babies under 3. It gave Papaw and Gammy just the space for a week of fun: close to beach, close to pool, and close to the ice cream shop! Having the second floor bedrooms allowed the babies a quiet location for naps and for their parents to relax downstairs in the evening without disturbing the little ones. The house was very clean and well maintained. We found a couple of things that needed repair and the Foley's offered to come the same day. I would most definitely recommend this property. Our adult sons and families want to return again next year.

Fine little place to call home for a week

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults, a teenager and four kids fit perfectly into this home nestled in the middle of Santa Rosa Beach. The home was clean, well furnished and less than a five minute walk to some of the prettiest sugar white sand beaches. The furnished chairs and umbrellas gave us a great spot on the beach too. Thirty feet out the back door down a paver stone path and you were in the community pool. The only bad thing about our stay here was the fact that it had to end! No more hustle and bustle of Destin for us now. We are 30A fans!!

Thank you so much for sharing Monkey Business with us!

It was the perfect place for our party of 10 including 5 adults and 5 kids. There were plenty of beds, a lot of space to spread out, and the loft look out room was a huge bonus for the kids! We had everything we needed, and then some. The house was very clean, and the owner is great to work with. The kitchen is updated and very nice. Plenty of linens, towels, and even beach chairs to use (3).

The community is great, pool was warm and very close and convenient, as were the grills. The walk to the beach is 5 minutes, and this beach is not over crowded.

We are already considering another stay next year!

A little Monkey Business of our own...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on our first visit to the Emerald Coast. This home met all of our needs- travelling with 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 6 to 13)- the bedroom and bathroom situation was perfect. The 3 younger girls were able to share the bunk beds (plus pull out trundle), while the 13 year old boy got some privacy in his own room. Grandparents were able to use the first floor bedroom and avoid the stairs. The kids utilized the 3rd floor loft for hanging out or for quiet time. The short walk to the beach was never a problem and the pool area was well maintained. Having the beach chair/umbrella rentals included with the home rental is genius, and Elliot (White Diamond Beach Rentals) was friendly, professional and always got us a prime location each morning. Communication with the owner via email or through the VRBO site was excellent. The description of the home and the previous reviews should absolutely be trusted. We would not hesitate to stay here again! We love Santa Rosa Beach!

Monkey Business

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Monkey Business. The house was clean, loved the beach decor and the owner was great to work with. The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained. Short walking distance to the beach. Our daughter was on crutches and we were able to drive our van to the entrance of boardwalk and drop her off. Will definitely stay again!
