About Robert Barrow

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.

Robert Barrow purchased this cottage in 2014

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.

A perfect place for witness protection

  • 5 of 5

Want to escape? Mexico Beach is where we will be from now on. I grew up in Ft. Walton Beach. Now it is overgrown with condos that block out the sun. The house was perfect. It reminded me of old Florida right down to the pink/blue tiled shower. It was truly like we went back in time. This was our first trip with our dog and he loved the beach in Gulf county. Thank you so much for allowing us to have him. My wife and I plan on coming back in the spring. This was the most peaceful vacation ever.

The perfect vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Mexico Beach and it could not have been more perfect. Everyone is so friendly, everywhere we ate the food was amazing. Staying here your in walking distance of so much (walk down to Caribbean coffee every morning the place is perfect!) The house is so nice and clean, you are a short walk from the beach which makes it so convenient! The outside shower was so nice after a long day at the beach. Being on the canal was perfect for a little fishing or just relaxing at night. We honestly can't wait to go back!! I'll recommend this house to anyone I know looking for a perfect vacation spot!!

Few steps to the Ocean

  • 3 of 5

The house was close to the water which is what we were looking for. One problem was we were only supplied with 3 towels for 4 nights for two women, so we used a couple of the beach towels we brought. We are big T.V. watchers especially in the evening. TV was not very friendly and ended up being alot of shopping programs. Tried making sure we swept up any sand we tracked in but a dust pan was no where to be found. Hate to complain but thought maybe this may help the owner in the rental of his property.

Sweet place.

  • 5 of 5

Dock out back and the beach is right down the street. What more could you ask for? How about a grill, picnic table, lounge chairs, a swing and most important a clean and cute interior. We found this to be a perfect little place. Plus the fact that we were allowed to bring our dog was icing on the cake. Hope to visit again someday.

Great little cottage, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cottage, just steps from the beach and Mexico Beach fishing pier. When we arrived, it was very clean, and had all the amenities we were looking for. While we come down to the forgotten coast every year, this was our first stay in Mexico Beach. We really enjoyed the area, great restaurants, and very friendly folks. Don't miss checking out the pizza place just up the street, it was some of the best I've ever had.

I would definitely stay at this property again, and the Barrows were super to work with. Hope we can get back soon.
