About F.W.Muldowney III

My first career was in the USAF. I discovered the area when I was stationed at Eglin AFB in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing flying the F4E.. My second career was with Verizon Wireless and when I travelled which was a lot I was always looking for a place to retire. I kept being drawn back to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. When I moved to Nashville a friend suggested I buy a house in Destin since I was always talking about the beaches.. Three weeks after that conversation I came down for the weekend and purchased my home in South Walton County next to the Topsail Preserve. The architect gave me plans for a cottage and two years later I built the Little Cottage. The area has grown quite a bit since my arrival with many posittive additions to our community from shopping . grocery stores, bike paths, , fabulous restaurants and a first class Hospital. Even though I traveled extensively in both my careers and lived all over the states as well as overseas it is hard to pry me away from Santa Rosa Beach..

F.W.Muldowney III purchased this cottage in 1999

Why F.W.Muldowney III chose Santa Rosa Beach

The Little Cottage is quite unique based on its location near the Topsail Preserve and the areas amazing beaches. You will be hard pressed to find a private one bedroom cottage with a 38 foot pool on one side and a hot tub on the other surrounded by nature. I'm just sayin!

What makes this cottage unique

Check the reviews they explain the benefits better than I ever could. The Little cottage has a 38 foot pool, hammock, a gas grille ,table and umbrella for eating on the deck for your own private romantic dinners

Perfect honeymoon getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Little Cottage for our honeymoon (October 19-October 24). We originally booked the cottage for four nights, however, after falling in love with Santa Rosa, we decided to stay one extra night. The cottage is adorable, cozy, and private. The owner, Bill, is so kind and very welcoming. We truly enjoyed spending time in the hot tub while star gazing. It was so romantic! The cottage is also in a great location, just a short drive to lots of great restaurants! We rented bikes and rode them to the beach from the little cottage. It was the perfect distance!:) The Little Cottage is such a gem! My husband and I will most definitely be returning and have considered making it an annual trip for our wedding anniversary. Bill, thank you for making this available to travelers! We loved the little cottage and had the most wonderful honeymoon. We hope to see you soon!

Artist Retreat in the Little Cottage in SoWAL

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month at the "little cottage" in Santa Rosa Beach on the Florida Panhandle on 30A --my first visit to this area of pristine beach walks and I loved it. Everything at the Cottage was perfect for my needs. I came for a month to be an artist, walk the winter beach and enjoy the time away for creative exploration. I loved the high ceilings and loft style bedroom with starfish in the window. The kitchen with a small island and open concept for perfect as I cooked in the entire time. Loved tuning into NPR while I worked and when I relaxed great wifi and even cable for escapism. A 15' minute walk to the most beautiful beach and two state parks also offered plenty of options for enjoying the Gulf Coast and sugar white sand. Bill was a fantastic host with his elegant dog Sophie. Respectful yet available for anything I might need and even just for enjoyable conversation. Where do I go for an oil change? That kind of thing. And a bonus (for me) was the Cyrpress boardwalk right in the neighborhood. I never did see the big turtle or an alligator but I loved the reflections and lily pads and woodpecker and great blue heron and the stillness. It was all magic. And after all that walking and occasional biking on the 20 miles of paved paths the hot tub was perfect. I didn't even know I liked hot tubs but this was always clean and available and I loved it. I sat in it almost everyday for a month. What a treat. For an artist (or anyone) looking for a safe beach getaway with fantastic amenities this was amazing. The cottage had everything I needed. Great location, W/D, wifi, great kitchen, open living, respectful host and clean. Too cool to use the pool but it was sparkling. I did enjoy sitting outside to read and laid in the hammock one day --just because. Lovely outdoor spaces yet private. Perfect. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review of the Little cottage there is not much I can add. I believe my most recent guest captured the essence of the Little Cottage and the area.. Each day she left either walking or biking and occasionally driving to some new adventure and then returned to the peace and quiet of the Cottage to do her work. The Little Cottage is a place for someone who enjoys nature, hiking, and biking and peaceful walks on the beach or the elevated boardwalk through the Cypress swamp a truly amazing experience just minutes from the cottage.

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage for our birthday weekend. Bill is such a great host and very helpful with all the restaurant suggestions. We biked on 30A to Dunes Allen Beach and it was amazing! The hot jacuzzi was a plus especially on cold nights. Overall it was a fantastic stay. Wish we could stay longer! Thank you Bill!

Amazing and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved The Little Cottage from the first to the last second we were there. We will be back. Spotlessly clean, more towels than 4 families could use.

Bill was so helpful with recommendations. Everything was as promised. Would highly recommend this to couples of any age. The pool was pristine and immaculate. The hammock was perfect. Even found reading material for the beach. We have never been as pleased with a beach house and will tell all of our friends. So much value for the dollar.

Loved Bill's adorable dog.

Thanks again for a must excellent vacation. Herb and Donna
