Overview

Mexico Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7.

Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? My cottage does not have landscaped gardens but has a nice open air porch in the front. It is just as nice as the more expensive places.

Now if you want a home that is on the beach, that is another story. Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.

Maximum capacity is 7 or 8. Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in. and ready for your dog to run free.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy fresh breezes, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.

You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, front bedroom, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

No pictures of the beach down the street but it is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

I prefer to receive email inquiries due to my full time job.

Cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Screened porch in back and an open porch in front.

Owner Profile: Year Purchased: 2010. Why the Owner Chose: Mexico Beach. Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground. The Unique Benefits at this Cottage. Beach chairs, wagon, 3 beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.

first time with vrbo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using vrbo so we were a little leery. But everything went smoothly and was as promised. The house was clean quiet and comfortable. Everything for beach was there for our use including rod holders and a high chair for my youngest grandchild. Mark so graciously allowed our daughter's dog as a last minute addition. I would highly recommend this as a relaxing and very affordable vacation.

We had a fabulous time here! Mark had a great selection of beach things ( umbrellas, chairs, beach wagons!) And the house was a very short walk from the beach..probably the best deal in mexico beach!

Quiet, clean, comfortable, cozy.......and we could bring our two small dogs! The home had everything that we needed. Lots of places to go and see, great food near by at Sharon's and Killer's. The kitchen is very well equipped, even spices in the cupboard! We loved it!!

Amazingly cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed by how smooth everything went. This was our 1st time renting online and Mr Mark was wonderful. His house had EVERYTHING we needed. We felt so at home we didnot want to leave. It was a shart walk to the beach(1 1/2 blocks) which we liked since we have a small child (if we had been beach front we wouldnt have been able to relax thinking he may have snuck out to the water). We went shelling on the beach every morning. We explored the area in the afternoons(cape San Blas and the state park was wonderful) and the enjoyed the sunsets while fishing at the Marina in the evenings. We are so happy that our first ever family vacation was such a success. If I could give this rental 10 stars I would. Mr Mark's beach rental is an affordable home away from home in a perfect location, he truly has thought of everything. We cant wait for next year!
