About Anderson Family

My husband and I currently reside in Saint Johns, FL with our two children. We moved here to enjoy endless summers after moving around quite a bit while my husband was a member of the United States Army.

Anderson Family purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Anderson Family chose Seacrest Beach

We selected our home in the Rosemary Beach area because the beaches are some of the most beautiful either of us have ever seen. The area is ideal for families and romantic getaways. There are numerous restaurants and boutiques within a 5 mile radius. If you are looking for entertainment for the whole family, Panama City Beach has something to offer for everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

Our favorite part of the home is the coastal cottage feel and the proximity to the beach. We just cross the street and have incredible views of the ocean and white sand under our feet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our experience at your home was practically perfect in every way. It was spacious, comfortable, great décor and one bathroom per person!!!!! We are 3 good friends from Michigan. I will spread the good word of your home in Magnolia Cottages. Hope to return once again.

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house to accommodate our family of five (three teenagers) with plenty of space. The house was clean and decorated so nicely too. The best part is location, we were so close to the beach! We are already talking about a return trip!

From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The decor was impeccable!

  • 5 of 5

It's a perfect location with easy beach access. The home was spotless and had everything we needed to feel at home. The coastal decor was a nice touch! The home had a nice layout and offered three bedrooms and three full baths and a cozy back porch. It was very convenient to shopping and great restaurants. The best part was easy access vs a hotel. Wee would highly recommend and want to stay there next year.

Hurricane Irma derailed our plans

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, Irma left our family in Florida with a mess to clean up. We were prepared to cut our losses on this much anticipated vacation home. When I contacted the owner, they promptly refunded the entire vacation in full. Not only were they incredibly understanding but they were gracious enough to offer their truck when they realized the close proximity to their own home.

We look forward to staying in this vacation rental soon!

What a fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in this wonderful house. The proximity to the beach was brilliant, a 5 minute walk to white sands and clear water. The house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Eric and Dawn the property managers were affable and efficient when needed and also the owners on hand with questions with quick answers.

There is a great coffee shop in Rosemary Beach called Amavida which we went to every morning, such a relaxed place.

Thank you The Andersons for opening up your home.

Quiet area and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Magnolia by the Sea. This place had everything you needed. It is decorated beautifully and very easy to access Beach and pool. Located right at Watersound Parkway so it is easy to get in and out to Hwy 98. We had a 22 month old with us and there was a basket of toys there to play with. He loved the back porch as well. Great place and great service from Eric!
