Professionally decorated with a West Indies flair, it uses blends of woods and fabrics and colors for a sophisticated, yet casual atmosphere. The home was designed with gulf views from all floors.

About Mary Moses

Retired in 1997 after 35 years as a Navy family. We have grown children and 4 grandchildren who enjoy the beach house and have made many wonderful memories at Santucket over the years.

Mary Moses purchased this house in 2001

Why Mary Moses chose Santa Rosa Beach

We love the beach, and found that Old Florida Cottages was just right for families and close proximity to the beach, restaurants, shopping, and all the activities that we enjoy. Walking and biking distance to just about everything.

What makes this house unique

Fall and winter are beautiful and the temperature is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beach environment. It is usually warm enough for just wearing a light jacket or sweater, and also have days that are just balmy! Best time for the beach for us older folks!

Just a short walk away is Goatfeathers Restaurant and Seafood market, where we buy fresh shrimp, have them steamed and bring home for a wonderful dinner. The kids love the ice cream truck which drives by in the evening.

Very pleasant house

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently close to 30A, this house is surprisingly quiet and only a short walk to a public access point for the beautiful beach. The house is pleasantly furnished and comfortable. The owners are responsive to any questions or concerns. A very good experience!

Nicely Tucked Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Easter weekend. It was very comfortable for 3 kids and 3 adults. We had more than enough room. It is tucked away in the back of the circle of houses so it's nice and quiet. We had a most relaxing time and loved visiting the beach daily. We got shrimp and ice cream right around the corner. It was a short but sweet time.

Room for the Whole Family close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Santucket was great. The home was clean with nice furniture and a short 5 minute walk to access turquoise blue water on a white sand beach. My husband and I took our 2 teenagers and my in-laws. We loved having ample space for everyone in their own zones of the house. We were there for Spring Break and though some of the other areas nearby were congested with lots of people and traffic, our part of the beach was quiet with only a few other families.

After a long day of sightseeing and excursions, it was nice to return to the calmness of this community.
