At Wish You Were Here, spend the day at the beach, it's only 400 steps from the front door via our community's private beach access!. When you've had enough sand and surf, it's an easy transition to fun in the large 7500 sq ft pool with heated spa that anchors our community. Relax with a beverage on the huge covered porch nestled among the native trees while the steaks are sizzling on the Ducane Weber gas grill.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage sleeps 7 comfortably. The spacious King master suite has a full bath, 32' Wifi enabled flat screen TV, and tons of storage in the closet.

About Faheem & Cissy Khan

We are a family of 4 from Lewisville, TX. We have been coming to 30A for over 10 years...we have been lucky to visit many beaches around the world, and there's truly no place like this...miles and miles of sugar white sand and emerald green to turquoise water. Please call us directly at (214)802-9331for any questions regarding our beach cottage.

Faheem & Cissy Khan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Faheem & Cissy Khan chose South Walton

Wish You Were Here is in a small community, and our house is only 400 steps to the beach! We fell in love with the 'Florida cottage' architecture with the tin roof and huge shady porch. There's something special about rain on a tin roof, and on breezy nights we can sit on the porch and hear the waves crashing on the beach.

We love the location of our house. It's about 1.5 miles east to the Rosemary Beach town square - we ride bikes to the Sunday Farmer's Market and our kids walk or ride bikes there to get a Fro-Yo and hook up with friends they've met on the beach. About the same distance west is the brand new, very unique venue "The Hub" - several casual dining choices and multiple "hang-out" spaces for watching sports events and live music. We are about 6 miles from Seaside - a longer bike ride but a great trade-off for a 'snack' from on of the food trucks there!

Our area of 30A is less populated and less dense than Rosemary Beach and Seaside. We love that the beach never feels 'crowded', and the kids love that crowds are a just a stroll away.

What makes this cottage unique

We have poured our hearts into making Wish You Were Here a beautiful and comfortable vacation home. We know there are lots of choices in our area. We think the casual, fun elegance of Wish You Were Here - from the soothing, sophisticated colors to the unique artwork and furniture pieces is perfect for relaxing, enjoying the beautiful area, and creating special memories.

Great place to stay with your family!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to stay for your beach vacation. House nicely decorated with beach decor and up to date ammenities. Plenty of space for a family of 4-6. Lovely porch. Cozy couch. Comfy beds. Easy short walk to the beach. Owners very kind and allow you to use their bikes which is a nice perk! Easy bike ride to shops and eats at Alys, Rosemary, and Seacrest. We’d stay there again!

Great Cottage! Convenient, Well Decorated, And Very Functional!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our week-long stay at the cottage to wind down the summer!

Our family enjoyed the proximity to the beach which is only a couple of minutes away. The cottage is also ideally situated in the relation to the pool. It is the second or third house on the path from the pool making it close enough but not right on top of it.

The house was well equipped, had all essentials and enough paper products to get us started. There is a Publix about 10 minutes away to stock up on groceries and other needs.

Proximity to nearby communities of Seacrest, Alys Beach, and Rosemary Beach comes in handy. Destin's only about 40 minutes away. Overall, a great experience!

Very beautiful, and decorated perfectly.

The house was in excellent condition, and had everything we could possibly need. It was like a home away from home. The beach and pool are very nice and clean. Overall great experience.

Great location, beach not crowded, loved the bikes, GREAT value with lots of extra touches

  • 4 of 5

I struggled with my ratings and will explain why I gave it four stars and not five. The owners and mgt company were very responsive and helpful. It's a great cottage and we used the bikes that were included daily. Saved us money on rental. It rained two days during our trip, so we thoroughly enjoyed the large flat screen TV in the great room along with the Netflix subscription. The king bed in the master was very comfortable as was the queen in the second bedroom. My 5'-7" 12-year old could not sleep in the bunk beds in the front bedroom as they were too small and the mattresses too thin for him. I think young children wouldn't notice. The closets have TONS of storage space in the master and the queen bedroom (bins and hanging) and the shower head in the master bath tub was more than tall enough for my 6' tall husband. The boys enjoyed swinging on the porch swing and we were thankful for the ceiling fans on the porch and the citronella candles the owners left there as it IS Florida and there ARE mosquitoes.

The cabin has a sense of privacy as it is not immediately on the pool grounds (it's down 2 houses). A couple steps and you are there. The neighborhood pool is probably the largest we have found in a vacation subdivision in that area with the exception of the lagoon pools at Seacrest and High Pointe Condos - but not nearly as crowded. However, there are no umbrellas, so there is only shade during the early morning and late afternoon hours. Our kids played in the pool for HOURS and DAYS! The walk to the beach takes very little time and the beach area reserved for the cottages is not crowded at all! In fact, this section of 30-A is probably the least crowded, sandwiched next to Rosemary/Alys Beaches to the left and Seagrove and Seaside to the right.

The cons: the appliances are aging. When we arrived, we noticed a large hole in the ice maker so that all the ice spilled into the freezer. We reported the problem and placed a colander under the hole to act as an ice bucket. The heating element broke in the oven while we were baking causing sparking and flaming; fortunately, it also threw the breaker. We called and someone replaced the element the next day. It was little things like the age and condition of the appliances that made me rate this cottage a 4 instead of a 5.

This cottage is a FANTASTIC value for the price and I don't think you will find a better deal along that stretch of 30-A. It is nicely furnished and I'm sure we'll be back.

Lovely, relaxing and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house and the owners. The internet went down for a couple days and we were reembused for data charges. The house is updated and very spacious. We go with my parents and 2 small children and everyone has their own space.
