Gulfside Cottages Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms / 3 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Sandy Bottoms is a charming aqua trimmed cottage style 3-story home located just steps from the sugary white sands of the emerald coast in the quaint neighborhood of Gulfside Cottages. The cottage features all brand new furnishings in a fun and coastal décor. The updated kitchen is outfitted with the latest Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, new mosaic glass backsplash, and large under mount sink. Ceramic tile and beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the home add to the charm. Each guest suite offers brand new Serta bedding, ample storage, and a 32” flat screen TV with built in DVD. You can enjoy the refreshing gulf breezes from each of the four covered porches.

The home is just steps away from the custom designed community pool and a short 3 minute walk to the sugar white beaches and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There are no major roads to cross as the neighborhood is located on the Gulf side of Scenic Hwy 98. Sandy Bottoms is located within walking distance to Winn Dixie, an ice cream shop, Starbucks, Silver Sands Outlet Mall and just a short drive to golf venues and fine and casual dining at Grand Boulevard and Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin. The picket fence-lined private street has extensive landscaping and will be perfect for an evening stroll. This home features a private drive with covered parking, a gas grill, and an outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing the sand after a fun day at the beach.

Everything in this home is newly purchased and has a traditional coastal cottage décor. On the FIRST floor you will find the master bedroom which has a king bed with designer bedding, double closets, a private master bath room with a separate shower, soaking tub, and vanity. There is a large flat panel television with a DVD player. The master bedroom has French doors that open to a covered porch with chairs for your personal retreat. On the same floor there is a Guest Bedroom with a Queen bed and cheery bright bedding. There is also a private bath and a large wall mounted flat panel television with DVD player. From this bedroom there is a deck for sitting with views of the serenely landscaped neighborhood. Conveniently located, adjacent to the bedrooms is the laundry with a full size washer and dryer. On the SECOND floor is the living room which opens onto another covered porch which is the ideal retreat to enjoy your favorite book or beverage amid the tops of the palms. The living area boasts of coastal charm with a striped queen sofa bed, 3 bright colorful chairs and a large wall mounted flat panel high definition television with Bluray that has the ability to access Net Flix and Pandora. The home is also equipped with Wi-Fi. This kitchen is updated with NEW Whirlpool stainless appliances, a mosaic glass backsplash, and beautiful newly installed granite countertops with seating for 3 at the breakfast bar. There is a dining table with seating for 6 for those special meals after a long day at the beach or pool. On this floor is a guest bedroom for the children with a fun white twin over double bunk and a twin pull out trundle bed. You can keep the younger ones in your family occupied with the large wall mounted flat panel television with DVD player and HDMI jack for your gaming system. Also on this floor is a bath room with a shower/bath tub combination. Up the stairs on the THIRD floor is a loft bedroom with a Queen bed, large flat panel television with a DVD player, and the most comfortable red chair and half with an ottoman. The many windows provide panoramic views of the area including peek-a-boo views of the Gulf of Mexico.

While we are private owners, we do utilize a local well known management company. They handle the payment, check in, and most importantly are at your service during your stay. Another benefit is, upon check in you will receive a coupon book with $100's of valuable coupons for local restaurants, activities, and shops along with free movie rentals from their office which is less than 1 mile from the home.

About Kimberly

We live in Atlanta and enjoy spending time with our family at Sandy Bottoms as often as possible.

Kimberly purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Kimberly chose Gulfside Cottages

We have vacationed in the Scenic Hwy 98 area for years and decided the time was right to purchase this home that our family could enjoy for years to come.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of Sandy Bottoms couldn't be better. It is close to all of our favorite things; Baytowne Wharf, Destin Commons, Grand Boulevard, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and of course all of the great restaurants.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed your lovely home. The decor was awesome! I appreciated the home being so clean. The children so enjoyed being able to safely ride their bikes in the cul-de- sac as well as being able to ride their bikes to the beach. The pool was also very convenient! I could not image a more perfect home in Destin. We will be back! Thanks for keeping your rental home in top condition.

Sandy Bottoms

  • 4 of 5
The house was beautiful and very well equipped. I would not recommend this house to anyone who has trouble using stairs as the main living area was upstairs. The parking was ok for one car definitely not for more than 2 cars. Had some trouble with the gas grill and ended up buying a gas bottle, over all a great time.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the comments about the grill. We have asked our management company to check the grill before each guest's stay as it does get plenty of use. We hope to see you and your family again.

Treasured Every MInute

  • 5 of 5
*a charming, close walk to the beach
*the décor is spacious, smart, lovely, clean and fresh. I loved the kitchen & the outdoor covered porches...a lovely neighborhood.
*Kim, the owner, provided her own personal choices and suggestions on where to go & what to see. I loved that.
*I will absolutely recommend Sandy Bottoms!
*it is so conveniently located to the grocery store, shops, restaurants...also, a quick & easy trip on down to Watercolor & Seaside...Which I recommend. We enjoyed dinner at The Red Bar, despite an 1 1/2 hour wait...which we used up shopping & strolling on the beach...
*stay at Sandy Bottoms...you will have a wonderful time!
*Thank you, Kim! We'll be back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time at Sandy Bottoms! We've worked hard turning the cottage into our perfect family retreat and love to hear how much others enjoy it as well. The covered porches are the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or a little quite time with your favorite book when winding down from a fun day at the beach. We hope you visit with us again soon!

Spring Break 2013

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for a wonderful week at Sandy Bottoms! Our family of 5 had more than enough room and were so comfortable at Sandy Bottoms. The home was decorated nicely and everything was provided that we needed for the week. Very importantly, the location was perfect! It was an easy, short walk to the beach (with a 2 year old!), as well as the outlet mall, restaurants and the grocery.

We enjoyed our week at Sandy Bottoms! Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: We have worked hard turning Sandy Bottoms into the perfect family retreat. The cottage offers coastal charm with all the updates and conveniences of home...in a perfect location...steps from the pool and a short walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants! The perfect recipe for a great vacation.

Map

This is the perfect location for a memorable family vacation. We are on the beach side of Scenic Hwy 98 with no busy streets to cross to the beach. We are within walking distance to Winn Dixie, Starbucks, and Silver Sands Outlet Mall. The entrance to Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin is less than a 1 mile drive from the home. Town Center at Sandestin is 2 miles. Destin Commons is a 5-10 minute drive. There are countless restaurants and shopping destinations close by.
