“Hold Your Seahorses”... Hey!, this is a great place to stay! The house is in the middle of Old Florida village just yards from one of the two swimming pools. The location is very quiet with a pond and undeveloped wetland behind the house. The house has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom with queen bed and private bath is quietly located in the rear of the house. Blue heron and snowy egrets are frequent visitors to the pond where turtles bask in the sun. You can also hear frogs and the roar of the surf at night. There is a queen guest room and a third bedroom with twin over full beds. The house is colorful, light and airy. Each bedroom has a TV, DVD player, nightstands and a dresser. A gas BBQ grill is also provided for your convenience.

This balcony is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast. A colorful guest bedroom with queen bed is on the second floor and has a private balcony, dresser, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player and amenities. The stairwell to the second floor is colorfully decorated with bright beach paintings. The living room with HD-TV/entertainment center/Blu-Ray /DVD Player is a great place for all to congregate and enjoy the evening of dining and games.

On the first floor, you'll find the colorful entrance way and two bedrooms. The master bedroom is quietly located in the rear of the house with a private porch overlooking the pond and wetland. The master is tastefully decorated with queen bed, dresser, chair, side tables, HD-TV, Blu-Ray/DVD Player, amenities and private bath with his and her closets.

About Rick Sunderland

We live and work in Atlanta. Sharon is a Registered Nurse and Rick is in Data Processing. We have been vacationing in South Walton since 2006 and love it. We spend as much time as we can at the beach. We Kayak, fish, walk and relax at the beach. We enjoy nature and the great weather. We love 'Hold Your Seahorses' and have enjoyed making the cottage fun and comfortable for you as well as ourselves, our kids and grand-kids.

Rick Sunderland purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Rick Sunderland chose South Walton

We have stayed at many houses in Santa Rosa Beach since 2006 and we have loved it very much. This is our choice destination for vacations and family get-togethers. Purchasing this home in Old Florida Village was an easy decision.

What makes this cottage unique

Three of the main reasons we love our cottage. (1) We relax and enjoy the quiet and the sounds of nature. Enjoying coffee on the porch overlooking Hidden Lake and the birds is delightful. (2) We enjoy the beach very much. The beach during the day is delightful and walking to the beach for the sunset is a real pleasure. (3) We enjoy kayaking in the lakes, rivers and the ocean. A great pleasure is paddling at Grayton Beach just three miles east on 30A.

Wonderful Again !!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year in a row going to Santa Rosa & to "Hold your Seahorses" , we had a wonderful stay once again .. The house is perfect .. The neighborhood is so quaint & just great ! You're right by the beach , we would go to the beach at night too which was awesome ! My boyfriend loves the crab cakes at Goatfeathers which is right across from the neighborhood &'local catch has great shrimp tacos .. I

Love that Santa Rosa is by Watercolir, Rosemary , not far from Destin or Panama. We drove around to 5 different beaches in one day and snorkeled at an inlet in Destin two of our days there ... the owners are so easy to work with & it's a great house, great neighborhood, and great location for an awesome vacation.. We loved every minute of our stay !!!

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean comfortable, well maintained, charming, quiet, beautiful and safe neighborhood, family oriented area, 2 nice swimming pools and beautiful beach right across the street. Also, 2 very nice restaurants across the street and close to very modern Publix grocery store and nice shops and restaurants very close in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach.

Mattress on the main bedroom a little too hard (for me) and need more summer blankets. There was no electric can opener in the kitchen, the grill did not work well (the flame was very low so we were not able to cook on it) and the TV in the kids bedroom (downstairs) did not work.

Excellent 30A Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family an I had an awesome stay at your beach home! We love the location of Old Florida Village and the ability to walk to shopping, restaurants, and of course, the BEACH! We went to Goatfeathers Market several times to prepare fresh meals an also had great dinners at Basamati's, The Perfect Pig, Chiringo's, and breakfast at The Great Southern Cafe. We found the house very nicely stocked with all the appliances and amenities you would ever need on a beach vacation! The house was supplied with several beach chairs, toys, beach umbrellas, and to top it off, a large cart that we easily pulled along as we walked to the beach with ALL of our stuff! The owners are very accommodating and made our stay very relaxing. We will be back next year to Santa Rosa Beach!

Hold Your Seahorses was a great house

  • 4 of 5

Spring Break 2016 was great! The house was well maintained and clean. The kitchen was well stocked and the extra linens and beach towels were a plus. The owners were good to reply to any request. Santa Rosa beaches are beautiful and we will be back. We will definitely recommend this home to others.

Hospitality at it's Finest

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at "Hold Your Seahorses". The accommodations were perfect for our family of 7. We lacked nothing. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and we had plenty of beach supplies. It's that attention to detail that sets this home apart. We enjoyed the short walks to the beach, the pool in the evenings, and our children enjoyed riding their bikes around the quiet neighborhood. We made fantastic family memories here and look forward to returning again soon. Thanks so much.
