Old Florida Village is a quaint neighborhood of 75 cottage style homes on a quiet loop just a few yards north of 30A and the beach. This is just a short walk (0.5miles) to the beach or you can drive or ride a bike to beach access..

“Hold Your Seahorses”... Hey!, this is a great place to stay! The house is in the middle of Old Florida village just yards from one of the two swimming pools. The location is very quiet with a pond and undeveloped wetland behind the house. The house has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom with queen bed and private bath is quietly located in the rear of the house. Blue heron and snowy egrets are frequent visitors to the pond where turtles bask in the sun. You can also hear frogs and the roar of the surf at night. There is a queen guest room and a third bedroom with twin over full beds. The house is colorful, light and airy. Each bedroom has a TV, DVD player, nightstands and a dresser. A gas BBQ grill is also provided for your convenience.

On the second floor you will find the living room, dining room and the kitchen along with the balcony overlooking the quiet pond and wetland. This balcony is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast. A colorful guest bedroom with queen bed is on the second floor and has a private balcony, dresser, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player and amenities. The stairwell to the second floor is colorfully decorated with bright beach paintings. The living room with HD-TV/entertainment center/Blu-Ray /DVD Player is a great place for all to congregate and enjoy the evening of dining and games.

On the first floor, you'll find the colorful entrance way and two bedrooms. The master bedroom is quietly located in the rear of the house with a private porch overlooking the pond and wetland. The master is tastefully decorated with queen bed, dresser, chair, side tables, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD Player, amenities and private bath with his and her closets.

We live and work in Atlanta. Sharon is a Registered Nurse and Rick is in Data Processing. We have been vacationing in South Walton since 2006 and love it. We spend as much time as we can at the beach. We Kayak, fish, walk and relax at the beach. We enjoy nature and the great weather. We love 'Hold Your Seahorses' and have enjoyed making the cottage fun and comfortable for you as well as ourselves, our kids and grand-kids.

Rick Sunderland purchased this cottage in 2011

We have stayed at many houses in Santa Rosa Beach since 2006 and we have loved it very much. This is our choice destination for vacations and family get-togethers. Purchasing this home in Old Florida Village was an easy decision.

Three of the main reasons we love our cottage. (1) We relax and enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Enjoying coffee on the porch overlooking Hidden Lake and the birds is delightful. (2) We enjoy the beach very much. The beach during the day is delightful and walking to the beach for the sunset is a real pleasure. (3) We enjoy kayaking in the lakes, rivers and the ocean. A great pleasure is paddling at Grayton Beach just three miles east on 30A.

Amazing cottage in perfect location!

This beach cottage was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental at the Florida panhandle. Rick and Sharon were so pleasurable and helpful in all transactions and the home is perfect. We were so pleased with the location in Santa Rosa Beach - the beach is an easy walk and the small neighborhood is family friendly and oh so relaxing! We had everything we needed and were so happy to choose this location over Watercolor and Seaside - a million times more peaceful in SRB! Thanks!

We had our first stay on 30-A and had the best time staying at Hold Your Seahorses! There was plenty of room for us parents and the five teenagers we brought, and the outside porches added to the enjoyment of the Florida weather. We hope to make this trek again and can stay in this well-maintained, beautiful property!

What an awesome place to stay. We came into town for our nieces wedding. Reviewed many places on line and I picked "Hold Your Seahorses" as our home for 5 days. It is cozy, great location and the house itself has a great beach atmosphere. The only thing we needed was a few groceries and our clothes. Very clean and up to date! The owners were great to work with as well. I was the hit for picking such a great place to stay! We can't wait to go back and would recommend this quaint place to anyone staying in the area. The Local Catch has great food and entertainment as does Goosefeathers. Also a must is to check out is Grayton Beach State Park!! Again....very happy with our choice in accomodations!

We spent a week at the Hold Your Seahorses during the coldest January in at least 20years. The house was warm and cozy. We came down for a family wedding and everyone adored the house. Everything was clean and in great working order. We were stocked with everything we needed. There were wonderful local restaurants, stores, and many places to explore in the area. Can't wait to go back

Spent 4 days between Christmas and New Years at this great house. The house is perfect, decor is adorable, very comfortable furniture, tranquil porch views. Location is fabulous- quick walk to beach. Convenient to everything fabulous this part of 30-A has to offer, restaurants, shopping, etc. We frequent this area 5-6 times a year and usually stay in Seaside which we love but the price for what you get here cannot be beat!
