Perfect spot on 30A
We enjoyed a wonderful family vacation in Blue Parrot Cottage in early March. The location of the house was perfect for us, close to restaurants, ice cream and steps away from the beach. The house itself has everything a family will need and more. The pool was a great size and was lovely and warm (we requested pool heat as it was still a bit cool out). Linda was very quick to respond and so accommodating. Great house, great vacation!
Spectacular location, hospitality, and facility
Linda Bapst is a one in a million to work with. Down to earth, accommodating, and kind.
The location is perfect. The beach is half a block down a quiet road. It has white sand, dophins, sunsets, less people than most places I've been in Florida, and the town of Santa Rosa is small and quaint. Rent bikes and explore.
The house is amazing. Has everything you need. The pool is by far the most fun and relaxing place on the planet. It is private, warm, and big enough for a large family. All 7 of us were floating while listening to music and drinking adult beverages...heaven on earth!
Great Holiday Get-A-Way
We traveled with friends to celebrate New Years and this was the perfect location. House was well laid out ,fit our needs perfectly. Linda was a great communicator and made our stay a nice ending for the year. Great restaurants close by. Recommend highly.
Wonderful place for Christmas at the beach!
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Blue Parrot Cottage as we celebrated our first Christmas at the beach. We hope to make it an annual tradition and would love to return to the Blue Parrot Cottage next year. Everything was so clean and thoughtfully appointed. My wannabe-chef husband appreciated all the quality cookware stocked in the kitchen. The location cannot be beat -- walking to the beach just a block away was amazing.
Perfect vacation house steps to perfect beach
My family of 4 had an AMAZING time at this beach house! It's clean, well appointed, and about a block from a beautiful, clean beach on a quiet street. Linda was SO kind and thoughtful. Because the weather had cooled a bit before our stay, she increased the temp of the heated pool so it would be comfortable when we arrived. Her attention to detail is apparent throughout the home, including a generous number of beach chairs and pool toys. A big plus for us - the house is also a block from a great seafood restaurant. We ordered dinner from the beach, walked to pick it up, and returned to the beach to watch the sunset. Overall, a great house for a small family near a great beach and several restaurants. We will definitely stay there again.
