This cottage turned out to be a great "find". Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by thanking the owners for their attention to detail. For example: Henkle's

knives (alll sharp too); Mikasa English Countryside dishes; fine drinking/wine glasses; upgraded silverware; upgraded bath towels; fine bedding; the most comfortable beds; Cook's cookware (all in excellent condition); beautiful white slipcovers; upgraded carpet upstairs in bedrooms.

We stayed at Monkey Business for 2 glorious weeks - my husband and I with our little 10# fur baby. We have been staying in Seaside and this was our first venture to a new area. We now intend on making Santa Rosa Beach our "go-to" from now on. The beach access from Old Florida Village is very convenient; there are many good eateries close by, hence not needed to go all the way into Seaside/Watercolor and fight the traffic; the neighborhood is very quiet and well-cared for. The 2 community pools are well maintained and offer a pleasant break from the sand. We had no maintenance issues to report. We arrived the Saturday Hurricain Harvey was reaching the tip of the Keys and weren't quite sure what to expect. Luckily the forecasts stayed accurate and the Panhandle wasn't affected but for some wind and rain on Monday.

We rented bikes for the entire stay and were able to make it to Seaside!! I took great excitement in this accomplishment as I am 70 years young and not a biker. Once you get past the two uphills at Draper Lake and Blue Mountain the ride gets really flat from Grayton Beach on.

We ventured into Panama City and rented a pontoon boat and spent a fabulous day on the bay water and at Shell Island. Our little pup enjoyed the outing as well.

We sadly left yesterday and are already talking about our return visit, hopefully soon!

Great location and value. Perfect for a family of 4.

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 2 boys (10 and 12) and our dog Bruce spent almost a week here for Spring Break and we really enjoyed our stay at Monkey Business. We didn’t give it 5 stars simply because a few items could use some updating in the home, but by no means did that cause us any issues. Everything was clean, worked well and the customer service was fantastic. We called on short notice to check in a day early and they took care of everything within minutes. The beds and living room furniture were extremely comfortable. The neighborhood is very close to the beach, shopping and a couple of restaurants. The house is back away from 30A close to one of the neighborhood pools, but not too close. Pet friendly neighborhood too.

Monkey Business was our pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Monkey Business over Spring Break and it was the perfect getaway! We can picture coming back here with friends, with family or just on our own... Just steps away from the pool and a short walk to the beautiful white sand beaches we heard so much about. The interior is gorgeously decorated, and we had everything we could possibly need to make us feel at home. I would recommend Monkey Business to any and all and will be back every year!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Florida numerous times and Monkey Business is the BEST of them all! The amenities are fantastic. The area is quaint with everything you could possibly need. We are now spoiled and any stay in Florida not at Monkey Business will be incomplete!

What an AMAZING home! This was without a doubt one of the most pleasant vacations my family and I have experienced in quite some time. The home is absolutely gorgeous and accommodated superbly. We would love to make an annual vacation to Monkey Business!
