Overview

About the property

Starfish & Coffee, 3 bedrooms + large 3rd floor loft, 3 bath, easy walk to beach

*STARFISH AND COFFEE* in Santa Rosa Beach

WHY US:

With starfish in the windows and its coffee color, this large Old Florida Village home conjures up a funky, fun Prince song - Starfish & Coffee! Fun, fun, fun (and relaxation) is what you'll find at the beach, along 30A, and in the sanctuary of our beach home. We genuinely hope Starfish & Coffee will become a cherished part of your vacation adventures for years to come.

THE HOUSE:

Is BIG! And Private! With 2200 sq. ft., the house is one of the largest in Old Florida Village and located on a large, tucked-away lot that offers privacy and nature views. Each bedroom has extra space, making it nice to spend time there - get that personal R&R on your family vacation. The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking and serving full meals (if you choose!).

There are 3 bedrooms plus a 3rd story loft that is great for kids or singles to have their own space.

Starfish & Coffee sleeps 10 in beds:

2 Kings (both 2nd floor bedrooms)

1 Queen (first floor bedroom)

2 Twin bunk beds (4 single beds) in the loft

*Each bedroom is equipped with a TV and DVD player.

*Quality bed linens, bath towels (2/person) and beach towels (1/person) are provided.

*Each bedroom has room for a pack-n-play or crib.

EXTRAS, EXTRAS, READ ALL ABOUT THEM:

We like kids and grandparents (and parents too) and try to make travelling easy! The house is equipped with kid essentials including a high chair, baby gates, a pack-n-play with sheets, BPA-free kid's dinnerware, beach and home toys, and a Wii game system. For anyone needing one-floor living, we have a first floor bedroom with a full bath. Kids will enjoy their personal space in the 3rd floor tower room (the pirate's cove).

OLD FLORIDA VILLAGE NEIGHBORHOOD:

A quaint neighborhood of 75 cottage-style homes on a quiet loop just a few yards north of 30A and the beach. Starfish & Coffee is toward the front of the neighborhood, making it just a short walk (about 10 minutes) to the beach. Parking for cars and bikes is available at nearby beach access points:

*Gulfview Heights Access - 0.5 miles, car/bike parking, lifeguard in peak season, turn at Goatfeathers

*Spooky Lane Access - 0.4 miles, bike parking only

*Ed Walline Access at Gulf Place - 0.6 miles, ADA accessible, car/bike parking, lifeguard in peak season.

Kids already begging to swim? Visitors have 2 POOLS to choose from - Starfish & Coffee is across the street from the larger pool. You can easily keep an eye on your bunch at the pool from the upstairs porch.

GO, SEE, DO:

A perfect trip to Old Florida Village includes bike rentals from Big Daddy's Bike Shop (just up the street or home delivery!), mid-morning coffee and family movie night at Gulf Place, long beach days and dinner at The Red Bar and Stinky's Fish Camp (much more delicious than the name implies!). We love the beach and love to explore the area, finding new adventures to recommend for our visitors.

In addition to wonderful beaches, Scenic 30A offers hiking, biking, kayaking, and paddle boarding in nearby Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Grayton Beach State Park and Deer Lake State Park. The small communities along 30A, such as Gulf Place, Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seacrest, and Rosemary Beach offer charming year-round family events, dining, and boutique shopping. This area is great for casual, laid-back beach vacations or as a beautiful setting for your special events and celebrations.

Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is just around the corner - great for girls or guys long weekends! With just a bit of driving along 30A or into the Sandestin area, you can golf a different course each day. If starting or keeping a fitness routine is your thing, the running and biking path along 30A (18-mile Timpoochee Trail) or in the state parks is a gorgeous, nature-lovers setting! This is also a great home and community for artists, writers and crafty folks to find quiet and inspiration.

Hwy 98 is less than 5 driving minutes away and provides lots of dining and shopping and cinemas at Grand Boulevard, Baytowne Wharf, Sandestin, Miramar Beach, and Destin. Or head the other way on Hwy 98 and be in Panama City Beach in 20 minutes. Here you'll find the new international airport, boat tours, kid fun, restaurants, shopping. And did we mention the awe-inspiring sugar white sand and emerald water beaches that we can't get enough of?

We take pride in making Starfish & Coffee a comfortable, convenient, touches-of-luxury home you won't want to leave!

This house has everything!

  • 5 of 5

Starfish & Coffee was everything we expected it to be and more. Loved the location. We found everything we needed and avoided the hassle of holiday week traffic on 98. Oh...and the beds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd come back for the beds alone, but truly the entire home was a treat.

A great time again

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family stayed at Starfish and Coffee. Our second visit was as wonderful as our first. Amy, the owner, is great to work with. We were there during topical storm Cindy and Amy contacted us to make sure we were aware of the safest spot in the house. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. It is a short walk to the beach and the house is just across the street from the pool. We would definitely stay here a third time.

Great family house in a layed back community close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this house. It was great to go to a house that actually had some seasonings, etc in their pantry. Amy was wonderful to work with and answered all our questions prior to arrival. The beach is about 6 blocks away which wasn't bad but our daughter had injured her leg prior to vacation so we always had to drive her to the beach. The beach and water was absolutely beautiful and we loved being between the busy Destin and Panama City. Loved having the pool right across the street from us. So nice to have beach towels and beach chairs and toys for us to use...we also left a new boogie board for future visitors. We would highly recommend this house.

Very good!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable with everything needed to feel at home. We love vacationing at this home (this was our third consecutive year!) and treasure our family memories made here. Amy is a top notch hostess and she is such a pleasure to work with. The first floor bedroom/bath works great for Nana and gives her some privacy while our playful kids enjoy the third floor bunk room and toys. We love the closeness of both pools to the house and we rotate which pool we visit. This year we discovered the inlet of draper lake by the ocean... we put our chairs and umbrella right in between the ocean and shallow lake and the kids enjoyed both! Our boys LOVE biking on the long leaf trail system with Dad (trailhead is right around corner from house). And of course the kids get so excited daily to hear the ice cream truck coming at 7 pm! It's a wonderful house and a great location. We are hooked!
