About Bill Muldowney

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 travelled 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..

Bill Muldowney purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Bill Muldowney 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

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

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
We arrived about 1:30pm, and the house was not ready as it had not been cleaned. We were told it's usually ready at that time, but the housekeeper was late. We left to get supplies to return at 3:00pm and were assured it would be ready. Returned at 3:00, and it still wasn't ready...housekeeper was still cleaning. We waited in the car, and she finally came out and said we could come inside and put our groceries in the fridge, and she would work around us.
Disappointment continued:
Hot tub was empty and not available
Hammock was filthy with bird droppings and mildew
Grill was rusty and dirty...had obviously not been cleaned in a long time
Only two bath towels
One of only two hand towels was stained
Walking to the beach was not an option...way too far...very disappointing
Bed has an indentation on each side...very uncomfortable
Fridge handle needed cleaning

The house could be very nice with some TLC and maintenance. Will not return and would not recommend.

Owner's Response: Check in time is at 3:00PM which is early for most places. however I know guests are anxious to start their vacation and get a little beach time in the first day so I do everything i can to accomodate early check in. Unfortunately on July 23rd the height of the season the cleaners are extremely busy and that was not possible. The hot tub was popping the circuit breakers after ten years of faithful service so we decided to empty it and buy a new one which is on order. I have been watching the hammock closely and admit it was hard to keep clean this summer with all the rain. I am ordering a new one today. There is a closet full of towels upstairs most guests find it I tell guests if there having a problem with something please tell me I will fix it! This is the first complaint I have had on the bed that is very important to me as I know you need a good night sleep to enjoy your vacation. Two weeks ago I received an email from previous guests who wanted to know where I purchased the cover for the bed because they like it so much they wanted one just like it. I think things got off on the wrong foot when the guests arrive early and could not get into the cottage. I will do everything I can to see that it doesn't happen again. I value my customers opinions hope they tell me at the time when they have a problem I will address it. Bill

My wife and I just spent an outstanding week at the Little Cottage. Everything was better than expected. The week was filled with bike riding, beach walking, relaxing, and eating seafood! Thanks Bill for all the suggestions. We have fallen in love with the area and will be back!!!

Amazing, Relaxing, Beautiful, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned to reality after spending a week at the The Little Cottage. By far the most relaxing trip I've ever had. The cottage is perfect and has everything you need or could want. Thank you Bill and of course Sophie for sharing you Little Cottage with us. Our biggest decisions each day were whether to go to the beach or just stay at our own pool! Whether to grill fresh seafood from the market or go to our favorite place to eat dinner "Stinkys"! This was our anniversary and we both agree that we should make it an annual trip each September!

  • 5 of 5
Third year we have stayed and once again loved every minute. Had some rain ,but it did not spoil our time there. Make sure you take or rent a bike so you can enjoy the area.
Make sure to check with Bill on all restaurant recommendations, they are spot on.
Cannot wait to get back there again.

Owner's Response: The Little Cottage is having a great year. I am getting more and more repeat couples returning after their Honeymoon or couples coming to the beach without the kids for a romantic getaway. Either one is a great way to keep your romance alive and spend some quiet time in this very fast paced lifestyle. The Little Cottage is the perfect getaway come see for yourself and book early to secure your dates.

AWESOME! GREAT! TERRIFIC! WONDERFUL! PEACEFUL!

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this review as I sit on the patio at The Little Cottage. We have only been here for 3 days and have 4 more to go. For anyone considering a relaxing and enjoyable getaway; this is for you. The pool is absolutely beautiful. The owner, Bill, lives right here and is happy to give you any information you may seek. He is a gracious host. I will post again when our getaway has been completed. For any couple out there looking right now, this is a great place.

Also, age range I noticed on most reviews was 55+ because there is no age range listed for anyone younger. I am 35 and would DEFINITELY recommend this to my friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you April for your very gracious comments regarding your stay at the Little Cottage. As you say the cottage is a place for all ages and I do get alot of young people on their Honeymoons who love the cottage and many come back on their anniversary. I think that they are so busy with their lives that they don't write reviews,but many come back for a repeat stay. Thanks again for your comments. Bill
