Great Cottage - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been traveling around the country since June of 2013. Instead of “RVing”, we have packed our belongings in our minivan and locate places to visit on VRBO and similar sites. We typically rent for a minimum of one month at a time.

We stayed at the Blue Parrot for the month of February and found it to be one of the best, if not the best, properties we have rented thus far! We were so pleased to arrive to an impeccably clean, well appointed, and comfortable cottage. The owners and other guests that have written reviews have accurately described it.

Being there for a month, we did most of our cooking at the cottage. The kitchen is an excellent working space. It was well equipped with newer appliances as well as all of the smaller items one usually needs for cooking. Over all, the cottage was very comfortable. We especially appreciated the comfortable master bedroom with king bed, the sitting/TV area, and the outside deck. We spent almost all of our mornings sipping coffee on the deck and enjoying the fresh cool air of February!

The Blue Parrot is located just steps from an absolutely gorgeous beach with miles of walking available. It is also on the scenic route 30A bicycle path (19 mile path). You can literally walk or cycle for miles in either direction right from your doorstep. Among other things, the bike path goes to shops, restaurants and a couple of the state parks. We especially enjoyed cycling to Seaside, exploring on the way, and then having lunch at the Airstream food carts and restaurants. We also took advantage of a few hikes in the area (around the dune ponds) and a day of golf at the Santa Rosa Golf Club (just up the street).

The Blue Parrot is a special place and the owners, Linda and Richard, are clearly part of the magic! Linda was an absolute charm to work with. She communicated well and managed the property professionally, yet she also added a wonderful personal touch. It was always a pleasure to correspond with her. By the end of our month stay we felt as though we had made a new friend!

Needless to say, our stay at the Blue parrot was wonderful. We would definitely return (and probably will).

Our awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a much needed vacation at this lovely house. It was beautiful, clean, and had all the comforts of home. It was so close to the beach, which was a bonus, as well as easy to explore neighboring towns. It was easy to relax and breathe life in. We highly recommend this home for a vacation!

Still our favorite

  • 5 of 5

The weather was gorgeous, the area is great, the water was warm, and the crowds were down the week after Labor Day. Walking along the beach, we saw six rays and a sea turtle at dusk one evening. The owners take great pains in ensuring you have everything you need at all times. The house is cozy, the walk to the beach is just a few steps, and it's a great point to ride your bikes around - it's a great central spot for the adequate paved biking trails. It's away from the larger / busier public beach accesses but very close its own. Everything is always clean and in working order (this was our second stay) and you can depend on the owner to be responsive and get your deposit back to you fast.

Another Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Parrot Cottage for the second year in a row. Once again, we can't say enough about the house and the area. The house is wonderful and very clean. It feels like our second home after two stays. We always enjoy coming back to the beautiful pool and porch after a day at the beach. The beds are very comfortable and we all sleep well in this house. Linda is a great person to work with and she has even provided the beach umbrella and chairs. It is a very short walk to the beautiful beach area. We also enjoy all of the area restaurants and visited the Red Bar in Grayton Beach this stay. There is something for everyone. It truly is a stay in paradise when you vacation at the Blue Parrot Cottage! We can't wait to visit again next year.

Our favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at this beautiful home twice now, both times were perfect. This home has everything you could possibly want and need to have a great vacation.

So close to the beach and far from the crowds.(Which is what we like.) Linda is the best, so professional and everything always goes so smoothly when booking our time. Wish we could stay longer, we never want to leave.
