Comfortable home in nice location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at the Southern Belle and wished we had stayed longer. The home is very comfortable with nice furnishings. If you plan to cook at home, take note that the electric stove is a bit tricky and there are no basic condiments provided.

The proximity to the beach access was an easy walk and the neighborhood is quiet.

The heated community pool was actually too cool to use, and the ocean was too cool for swimming, but wonderful for wading and taking long walks along the beach.

Seaside was approximately a 7 mile bike ride away and a nice spot to grab lunch from the food trucks Deer Lake State Park was only 2 miles down the road and a great spot to enjoy the beach without a crowd.

Great beach house, perfect for young families!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our young son's first beach trip! My wife, her parents, our son, and myself all stayed in this house for just shy of 1 week. It is in a great location: a very short walk across 30A to the private beach access, and even shorter to the nice community pool. The floor plan was great for the five of us. We especially enjoyed all the rooms being on one level, as there were no stairs to worry about with our toddler. The neighborhood is quiet and picturesque, and it is in a very convenient location to the bike paths. Easily get to Seaside to the west or Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach to the east in a very short ride. We will likely be back!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to hear that your family had such a good time vacationing in our beach cottage! The proximity to the beach and the nearby communities is something that we too love about the neighborhood! Should good fortune bring you back to 30A, we would love for you to choose to stay in our home again!

Great location. Good home.

  • 3 of 5

We rented for two weeks. Picked this home because they allow pets. The owner is very responsive and helpful. The home is located a short walk to the beach. Nice neighborhood to walk around in. Easy bike ride to Alys and Rosemary. The home itself needed a little love. The king bed was hard and uncomfortable. Glass Stove top and kitchen containers were cracked. The back porch smelled like mildew and full of mosquitos. Never could sit back there. A little fresh paint would do wonders. Overall, the home was stocked with what we needed and was clean.

Nice beach access!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a close walk to the beach access and it was not crowded. We are beach people and did not use the community pool even though it was about 50 yards away. The house was clean and comfortable. All of the rooms are right off the living and kitchen area. The back porch is very nice and the landscaping blocks out neighboring homes.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Jason! Like you, we enjoy spending time enjoying the tranquility and privacy offered by the screened in back porch. We’re thrilled that you and your family a great time staying in our beach home away from home! And the fact that a relatively quiet beach is only minutes away is perfect!

Perfect house for my husband & I plus 5 kids! (4 teens and a baby) Not much walking, really close to the pool & the beach. We rode our bikes to Rosemary & to Seaside. I loved our little cottage. Would definitely recommend this location & house to families.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Lesley! We too love the fact that there is a bicycle path that runs the entire length of 30A! It’s great to be able to walk, jog or cycle to the nearby communities! We’d love for you to stay in our beach cottage again if good fortune brings you back to our little slice of paradise!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Richard! We are glad you enjoyed the time you and your family spent in our beach cottage! We also love how close we are to the neighborhood pool as well as the fact that the Gulf of Mexico and the sugar white sands of the Emerald Coast are only a few minutes away! We’d love the opportunity to host your family’s next vacation in paradise!
