About Francis Muldowney III

My first career was in the USAF. I discovered the area when I was stationed at Eglin AFB in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing flying the F4E.. My second career was with Verizon Wireless and when I travelled which was a lot I was always looking for a place to retire. I kept being drawn back to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. When I moved to Nashville a friend suggested I buy a house in Destin since I was always talking about the beaches.. Three weeks after that conversation I came down for the weekend and purchased my home in South Walton County next to the Topsail Preserve. The architect gave me plans for a cottage and two years later I built the Little Cottage. The area has grown quite a bit since my arrival with many positive additions to our community from shopping . grocery stores, bike paths, , fabulous restaurants and a first class Hospital. Even though I traveled extensively in both my careers and lived all over the states as well as overseas it is hard to pry me away from Santa Rosa Beach..

Francis Muldowney III purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Francis Muldowney III chose Dune Allen Beach

The Little Cottage is quite unique based on its location near the Topsail Preserve and the areas amazing beaches. You will be hard pressed to find a private one bedroom cottage with a 38 foot pool on one side and a hot tub on the other surrounded by nature. I'm just sayin!

What makes this cottage unique

Check the reviews they explain the benefits better than I ever could. The Little cottage has a 38 foot pool, hammock, a gas grille ,table and umbrella for eating on the deck for your own private romantic dinners

Amazing Honeymoon! All expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at the proximity of the cottage to the ocean. The beaches are FANTASTIC! The cottage itself is up-to-date, well-maintained, and plenty comfortable. Bill is a nice guy and easy to work with. We have been all over the U.S. and to several countries abroad, but there is just something special about this place. Go for it! You won't regret it!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of just over a week. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We cooked in most nights and found the kitchen well equipped with a very good selection of herbs and spices in the cupboard which was a bonus. Bill was very friendly and the one minor glitch we had with the DVD player he sorted immediately

The beaches were absolutely glorious and only a coupe of minutes drive away

We would recommend the Cottage to anyone who wants some peace and quiet but very close to restaurants etc as well

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The owner was friendly/ helpful, the pool was always clean, the inside was very comfortable for two, and it's in an ideal location. We're so grateful for stumbling across this listing and highly recommend staying here as a great way to visit the Destin area! Close to all that you could need from beaches to shopping.
