OCEANVIEW IN EVERY ROOM AT HIGH COTTON! BEACHSIDE FIRST-TIER

Mexico Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Arrive at High Cotton in time to set the sun with covered parking and 2 entrances. Take a chair& drink and follow the sandy path bordered by sea oats & dunes to the wide expanse of sugar white sand. You're on the beach more quickly than from many beachfront condos with your feet hitting the sand in only 20 steps from the driveway.

The townhouse is a duplex but built as a separate structure & is the unit closer to the beach. 3 stories high, it includes 2 stories (1100 sq ft) over parking, a patio style area & laundry room. Open the door to a brilliant panorama of sand & sea. Upstairs, you are welcomed by colorful art, comfortable furnishings, & freshly painted interiors. Bali shades can be lowered from top or raised from bottom providing privacy as well as breathtaking vistas from every window. Ceiling fans are in every room. The 2 decks are each a generous 10'x16'.

Bedrooms/Baths

Upstairs, fall asleep to the sounds of waves & awaken to breezes & seagulls. In the master bedroom, sleep late, lay back & enjoy the ocean view from the queen bed. There is also a private deck/balcony where the southern exposure allows sunbathing-even on chilly afternoons.The moon & a gazillion stars are clearly visible at night without the competition of traffic lights(there are none in MCB!) or neon lighting of theme parks & hotels. 2 double beds are in the second bedroom. Linens of 100% cotton 250+ count & new Serta mattresses assure a peaceful night's rest or a lazy afternoon nap. One full bath is upstairs and another full bath is on the main floor. The half bath in the laundry room on ground level is convenient for any quick dashes from beach. There is also an area to shower or hose off sand in the covered lower level.

Dining

There is a fully equipped kitchen with built-in microwave & dishwasher, as well as toaster & coffee maker.You can choose to eat inside or dine on the deck with beautiful views of the ocean & beach while kids eat downstairs on the ground level. Relax with appetizers& drinks on either of 2 decks. Have coffee while enjoying the sunrise upstairs on master bedroom balcony. A charcoal grill is downstairs with protection from afternoon showers. Relax while grilling your fresh catch & enjoy the ocean view & breeze swinging in the porch swing. There's an extra table & chairs on this level as well.

About Steve and Diane Affolter

Hi! We live on a farm in southwest Georgia and friends & family call us gogo & Ace. Ace is a farmer growing primarily peanuts,corn, wheat and soybeans. Gogo's a school psychologist, recently retired. We optimistically named beach house 'High Cotton' as we purchased it our first year planting cotton in 1995 (Beach house is also very tall). Gogo thought we'd get to move to the beach after retiring, but still working toward that goal.

Steve and Diane Affolter purchased this townhome in 1995

Why Steve and Diane Affolter chose Mexico Beach

We searched the panhandle for a quiet place to escape the crowds of Panama City and discovered Mexico Beach. Unbelievably this peaceful retreat is only 45 minutes from PCB's amusement & water parks. We also wanted a place within easy driving distance to our home with plenty of fishing. Many visitors compare Mexico Beach to the fishing village that was Destin 25 years ago.

What makes this townhome unique

High Cotton is located a block off Hwy 98, away from the highway sounds of traffic & trucks. Beach side streets are quiet with very little traffic & dead end at the beach. Our place is last house before the white sugar sand. Growing up, our daughter & her friends enjoyed going to the pier or Tommy T's for ice cream. Both are located just 6 streets away & within easy walking distance. Parents can even observe their kids walk to the pier & back from the top deck! Other favorites are kayaking & shelling on the' wilderness beach'-just 1/2 block away on the east side of the canal & accessible via MB's Canal Park. Fish from the covered dock area or cast from jetties here. This undeveloped beach is part of Tyndall AFB & stretches for miles. Gogo also enjoys treasure hunting (especially bright, shiny things) with our daughter or friends in the shops & boutiques in MB, Pt St Joe & 'Apalach'. Deep sea and bay fishing or just casting a line from the pier or shore are Ace's favorite activities. He also enjoys playing golf at St Joe & the entire family enjoys scalloping with friends in St Joe Bay. Every beach trip includes eating oysters at Indian Pass Raw Bar!

Family vacation at High Cotton

  • 4 of 5
High Cotton really is only steps away from the beach! I would say that the location is the best thing about this rental. There is also a cart to help you carry all your stuff to the beach. This was a huge help, especially when you have a 4 year old and a 9 month old (you have a lot of stuff!!) There is a toilet conveniently located on the ground floor, and a hose to rinse off when returning from the beach. The beds were all very comfortable, and linens provided clean and good quality. The house does have air conditioning, making for a nice comfortable temperature inside. We found the upstairs to be very clean, however I would have liked the main floor to be cleaner. It seemed like it needed a deeper clean (dusting, sweep under furniture, wipe cabinets etc). You notice these things more when you have a baby crawling around! The house is nicely decorated. We enjoyed looking at all the pictures and the original decorations around the house. The house has a fast internet connection and cable tv. The beach is a haven for shells, we saw dolphins swimming almost everyday, and there was a sea turtle nest on our section of beach, although we were not there long enough to see them hatch! The owners of this property were very helpful and always quick to reply to questions. I found using VRBO a very easy and convenient process.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5
This house is cozy and comfortable. The living room and kitchen areas are very cute with updated floors, appliances. The upstairs is very comfortable too, just not as updated as the downstairs felt. The best part about this house is that you can see the ocean from the LR/Kitchen/Master bedroom. How wonderful to wake up and see the ocean! And the two balconies are great. The upper one is perfect for watching sunsets. We ate every meal out on the lower balcony, watching the ocean. That's where we'd play games too. The balconies were never too hot with the ocean breezes. The house is super convenient to the beach too, just a few steps away! The owners were nice enough to provide a closet full of beach chairs, toys, etc. Unfortunately, the beach umbrellas in the closet were broken, but there was a store right down the road so we bought one. Fishing is also super convenient with a peer and jetty nearby. We were disappointed that there were no biking trails in this area. If you are looking for a quiet beach to relax on and a comfortable, convenient home to stay in, this was perfect. Not a lot of crowds or built up shops. Plenty of time to relax with a slower pace.

So Peacevful

  • 4 of 5
Really enjoyed our time at High Cotton and it was very difficult to leave. Daily walks on the beach, away from the crowds, comfortable place to stay with all the amenities. Very much enjoyed it. Only drawback was that ALL the beds were way too soft - never got a good night's sleep. But...the rest of stay made up for it.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, thanks for your response but we were surprised by the comment about beds! We stayed at High Cotton right after you & discovered all the slats had come off the frame & there was no support under the mattresses.
We've asked guests before & since you stayed & everyone has said the beds were very comfortable.
Sorry you were not- In future, if any problems, please call us or property managers to take care of you. We want no worries in paradise! gogo

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our two children (17-months and 8-years) stayed here in August. We loved it! It has everything you could possibly need: charcoal grill for cooking out, beach cart to hall your things easily to the beach (we had plenty with the kids), and best of all it is just footsteps from the beach. We loved the decks in the evening as we listened to the relaxinf sound of the rolling sea. We hope to go back this next year. Thank you so much for a wonderful place we could call home for a few days!
