We bought our home here in 2005 after several years of enjoying the beautiful area. With a background in construction, rental property and real estate, we have started doing beach rentals, so we can share these pristine beaches with guests and new visitors to the area .We are a family business with the understanding of what it takes to make a quiet stress free environment. You have our personal cell numbers and the commitment that your stay with us is of utmost importance .When you rent one of our units you will soon understand that our beach homes are a place you will want to rent again and again. We value family and friends and cant wait to make your stay one of many to remember. Boat trips, sunset cruises ,snorkel, diving, fishing and shelling are available upon request , we would love to take you out on our boat.

Why Robert Barrow chose Florida Main North West

The ambiance and serenity is all you are looking for and more. This house is just a minute from the beach and great relaxation. While sitting out front looking out you can see the beautiful beach from afar sipping on your morning coffee. If you are a family or just a couple looking to get away this is the place for you to relax and enjoy yourselves just as much as we do. We always do shelling in the morning or whenever you feel like it. At night a moonlight stroll along the beach you can see nature and its beauty. The little crabs come out at night which is always fun to see. This is a great place to be to enjoy a relaxing fun get away.

What makes this cottage unique

It is quiet, friendly neighborhood, with easy wallking distance to groceries, resturants, internet cafes, shopping, bike trails, water sports.

Great place to vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation and really enjoyed Serendipity and Mexico beach. It was the perfect space for our family (3). The walk to the beach was only about a block away. We brought a beach cart with us so hauling all of our beach items was very easy. I do recommend bringing a beach cart if you have one. We loved eating and playing board games at the picnic table under the carport. It was so nice sitting on the swing in the yard and playing football in front of the house which is located on a quiet street with little to no traffic. We enjoyed being able to ride our bikes to a variety of places close to the house (pier, seafood market, shops etc.). The house is nice and much bigger than appears in pictures. We had no problem with having only one bathroom. The shower was surprisingly spacious and the outdoor shower is private. The owners were very helpful by sending a list of recommended restaurants, shopping, and activities. Thanks for everything!!

Perfect fit for us!!

  • 5 of 5

With just me, my wife and two grandkids it was perfect. The house seemed to be really clean. We did see roaches 3 or 4 times so you may want to bring in an exterminator. Also the blue blanket on one of the twin beds sheds all over everything. We didn't notice this until my grandson used it when he slept on the sofa. Could also use a TV in one of the bedrooms. The house is in a perfect location and the shower in the back really comes in handy. But overall we really loved the place . Look forward to coming back next year.

Adorable beach cottage! Clean and close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here and would probably rent the same cottage again if/when we go back to Mexico Beach as a small family. It was perfect for our family of four! It was very clean and accommodating. We loved that there was an outdoor covered shower right outside the back door. That came in handy! I wished there had been a washer/dryer inside the house. They were in a storage building back behind the house. There was a leak in the refrigerator that was causing water to pile up and we were constantly wiping the shelves inside the fridge. We did let the owners know about this and I'm sure that will be resolved and will not be an issue in the future. We were a little disappointed that the cleaning crew was still at the cottage cleaning from the previous renters when we arrived at the 4:00 check in. We were told to give them a little more time and come back in about 30-45 minutes. This was just a little inconvenient. When we did come back the cottage was immaculate. Overall we loved staying here and had an awesome vacation! Mexico Beach is a hidden gem that we want to revisit!
