Overview

South Walton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Slice of Paradise . . .Santa Rosa Beach, Fl. This quaint, fresh and beautifully furnished Cottage is located in the family-friendly, pristine neighborhood of Old Florida Village, is an easy walk to the sandy-white beaches of the Emerald Coast and is just steps to two new relaxing community pools, each with their own bathrooms. This neighborhood has it all . . beautifully designed cottage-style homes, lush landscape, green areas for children and paver driveways. We guarantee you won't be disappointed.

The location of Old Florida Village, on the popular and scenic beach-front road Hwy 30-A is ideal! The picturesque and charming villages of nearby Grayton Beach, WaterColor and Seaside offer great restaurants and shopping and Destin is just a few miles down the road. It is approximately 50 minutes from Fort Walton Beach Airport. This well-maintained and appointed cottage features three bedrooms and two and a half baths. It sleeps 6 comfortably in one King, one Queen and one Full lower bunk bed, 8 (if children use the upper bunk and trundle).

Slice of Paradise is a newer cottage-style home that is located in a safe area where you and your family can enjoy endless summer time activities. There are eighteen miles of bike paths accessible at the entrance of the neighborhood and Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club is just down the street. The beach access across the street is complete with bathrooms, shower, covered picnic area, bike rack and parking.

Slice of Paradise is one of the largest three bedroom models in square footage in the village. This Non-Smoking home is beautifully decorated in an Island motif with an emphasis on quality and comfort. This fun, cozy get-away boasts three spacious bedrooms and two and one half baths. The house was purposely designed and decorated with two things in mind - comfort and enjoyment. To that end, you will find porcelain tile floors on the first level with carpeted bedrooms on the second level. Porches on both levels - front, rear and side with rockers and Adirondack chairs - are great for catching the sea breezes, reading, barbequing or simply enjoying each others company. The kitchen is outfitted for the gourmet cook and finished with stainless steel appliances, Corian counter tops and breakfast bar with stools. In addition, there are four flat screen TVs and two DVD players to provide entertainment options for the off-beach time of your vacation. Cable TV and wireless internet access is provided.

The community pool is just a few houses away and the pristine white sandy beaches of the gulf coast are an easy walk or short bike ride of less than .6 mile. There are a multitude of great restaurants in the area, some within walking distance and 'Silver Sands', a very large factory outlet mall is a 15 minute drive. Outside summer concerts, local art displays and trendy shops and eateries are just a short walk to 'Gulf Place' or short drive to 'Seaside'. These offerings along with golf at nearby 'Santa Rosa Golf Club' boasting two holes overlooking the emerald green gulf, and the 18 miles of biking/running/walking trail, are just a few of the entertainment options.

About Richard Green

We are Southerners who love going to the beach to take a deep breath inhaling the majesty of the beach with the mighty waves crashing in and yet the gentleness of the water once it comes ashore to lap against the sand.

We have three generations of family who count the days until we can return to the beach.

Richard Green purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard Green chose South Walton

We had vacationed at the beach for a number of years and always yearned for our own home. Slice of Paradise spoke to our hearts because it is only a short walk to the beach. This home is located in a village where the architecture and landscape compliment each home. The two community swimming pools are a great asset while Dad grills dinner or for a swim just before bedtime. The open floor plan draws the family together whether it is for a meal, to play a game or just visit.

What makes this cottage unique

The porches galore with rocking chairs for those early morning cofee visits hooked us on this home. The rush of our daily lives doesn't allow us to talk with the people we love most as much as we would like. The conversations never seem to slow down and the laughter is abundant when we are together at the beach.

Great house for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

'Slice of Paradise" was such a great house! We loved the location and really appreciated the fun list of attractions the owners provided. Also, all the things in the shed (floaties, chairs, sand toys) were so convenient! This is a great place for a family vacation. Can't wait to plan another trip!!

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Slice of Paradise and honestly can't wait to go back again. The house has everything you need. Our first visit was 3 years ago and I was amazed at how the house still looks brand new and so clean and comfy. So many awesome places to eat and shop. I would highly recommend this property and the owners!! There is a binder on the kitchen bar full of pamphlets from restaurants, shopping and other things to do that we found very helpful.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

When I say this house has everything, I mean EVERYTHING! Tons of stuff for the beach (chairs, toys, several umbrellas, wagon, floats, even a kite!) - you don't need to bring a thing. Kitchen is fully stocked with all you need for preparing meals. House is very clean and fit the 6 of us comfortably. My only tiny suggestion would be to add more hooks around the house (specifically in the laundry room and bathrooms), but other than that we completely loved it. Best part was reading outside on the back deck before dinner. We also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood in the evening - very peaceful and fun to see the other families. We rented bikes to get to the beach but it's walkable - just a little hot and probably too far for little ones to walk. Santa Rosa has plenty in the area as far as places to eat and shopping so you don't have to go into Seaside, but close enough if you really want to fight the crowds and go. There's a large movie theater and huge shopping center 10 minutes from the house if you have a rainy day. And the owners of this house were wonderful to work with (oh, and the keyless entry was PERFECT!). Thank you Margaret and Richard for sharing this fantastic house with visitors!

Great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, the neighborhood, and the overall location. We liked being halfway between Destin and Watercolor/Seaside, and felt that we had the best of both worlds. We spent lots of time at the beach across the street. It was lovely and uncrowded, and we appreciated having the chairs, umbrella and toys provided.

We went to Destin for the outlet malls, the sand volleyball at Pompano Joe's (my teenage daughter had a blast playing with the college kids!), parasailing (Destin Parasailing), and a snorkeling/dolphin/shelling cruise (Destin snorkel in Harborwalk Village) that was loads of fun. We also rented bikes for a few days, and enjoyed riding up and down 30A. It's easy to ride to Watercolor and Seaside, as well as to many great restaurants.

The owners could not have been more considerate! They were solicitous and helpful in every way. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great home with lots of room. Very clean and furnished for a big family. The master bed was amazing, very comfortable. The neighborhood was kid friendly, quiet and beautiful. We had one rainy day but the two covered porches gave the kids a place to play outside. The house included lots of beach toys, pool toys, umbrellas and beach chairs. It was so helpful not to drag all of that along. I would recommend some new beach chairs soon. The two pools were awesome with very nice bathrooms and lots of poolside lounging. It would be nice to have one heated pool as the march month did not get the water very warm. We loved the Santa Rosa beach location. Small town that you can walk to the beach, town for a beer, ice cream or dinner. Close drive to explore other areas in Florida. We had a wonderful stay and hope to come again.

Owner's Response: The Homeowner's Association meets on an annual basis on matters such as whether to heat the pools. As an individual homeowner we must abide by the decision of the Homeowner's Association not to heat the pools. We always advise Spring Break guests prior to their stay the pools are not heated. We replace our beach chairs every year.
