About F.W.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..

F.W.Muldowney III purchased this cottage in 1999

Why F.W.Muldowney III chose South Walton

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

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my favorite vacations of all time! The house was clean, modest and perfect for a couple. Lots of windows. I forgot how much I liked waking up bathed in sunlight with the skylight right over the bed. It had everything we needed. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and using the hot tub daily. I also really enjoyed our host - he was welcoming and helpful and so generous. The cottage is nestled in a forest preserve which was a lovely setting. I couldn't believe how clean the beaches were. No rocks, no shells, no seaweed. Just crystal white sand for miles. No crowds. I literally cried the last day of vacation because I didn't want to leave. We will be back for sure. Thanks for renting this home!

Our 5th Visit - Looking forward to #6!

  • 5 of 5

Little Cottage is the perfect getaway for my wife and I. Quiet, convenient and has everything we need. The nearby beaches are incredible, and the pool and hot tub are just icing on the cake. We consider the property owner to be a friend after visiting so many times, but then again he made us feel that way on trip number 1 many years ago. I highly recommend this wonderful property for a couples getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks I've tried to stock the cottage with everything you could possibly use on vacation I travel myself and often find that my rentals that I visit don't have the basic essentials I won't let that happen in the Little Cottage

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! The little cottage was so perfect, cozy, comfy, and had everything that we could possibly need. The house was beautiful along with the pool, deck lounging area, and the hot tub - along with the entire Cypress Dunes community area. My husband and I definitely decided that this was our favorite vacation ever! The area is amazing, the house, the beaches, and Bill was beyond accommodating. We actually messed up our checkout date completely by a whole day! How? I have no idea - going to blame it on Vacation time!! But he was so understanding and accommodating. We are already planning and looking forward to our trip to Destin area next year!! Thanks again for everything!

Relax and unwind at Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. It was a great place to unwind. Weather was perfect...70's and sunny. Enjoyed long walks to the beach, along the boardwalk and in the forest preserve. Just a wonderful stay overall!
