About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)


Comfortable, private (no other families on floors above, beside or below), your very own 'home away from home' ........ those are thoughts that will come to mind if you select to have 'Another Happy Day' as your next beach getaway!

The Santa Rosa area.............. truly a gem! Wonderful shopping, a variety of restaurants and endless entertainment (including outdoor summer concerts at Gulf Place) is available for the entire family within walking distance. Goatfeathers Seafood Market is only 2 minutes away from your front door. Bring back deliciously fresh seafood and grill on the back porch or have it steamed right at the market! Santa Rosa Beach, located between Sandestin and Seaside, is a short ten minute drive to the largest factory store mall in the country (Silver Sands Outlet). Fun restaurants, Rave Motion Pictures, and great shops at newly opened Destin-Commons is just a few miles farther west. Golf on the beautiful 18 hole Santa Rose Golf Club. Vacationers can utilize these popular areas for entertainment and at the same time enjoy the benefits of a less-crowded beach.

The village.............. Old Florida Village is a brand-new, quaint village of about 70 cottages on a quiet, winding lane. The neighborhood is situated on the North side of beautiful Scenic 30-A; located about 500 yards from the beach (a pleasant stroll). 'Another Happy Day' is ideally situated directly across from the second community pool; perfect for families that need to have close supervision with their children. Great bike/walking paths extend for miles. Convenient bike rentals are available in the area.

The cottage.............. this well-kept, tastefully decorated three bedroom, two bath, single-story cottage comfortably sleeps eight. The open kitchen/dining/family room lends itself to 'family time'. Ten foot ceilings, wide moldings, stainless appliances, and ceramic flooring complete the feel of quality. The master bedroom has king-size luxury bedding with ample storage for your belongings. This room includes a walk-in closet and a private bath with jetted tub. The rear bedroom is furnished with a full bed, twin bunk and twin trundle. It is perfect for playful children or could sleep an entire family! The middle bedroom is comfortable with queen bedding.

All bedrooms are furnished with mounted TV/DVD sets. Both porches

(pool view front and private rear with grill) are complete with

Adirondack seating for your favorite cool drink or A relaxing cup of

coffee. Parking for two vehicles is available on brick paver pad in

front of cottage. Additional cars may be parked across the way (pool

area)if available spots are open, otherwise there are designated parking areas in the neighborhood. Wireless internet is also there for those who have to check-in at work.

Your family's vacation.............. gorgeous sunsets, wonderful

memories, and sand between your toes is just a click or phone call

About Matthew Lansing

Tripp and I have been coming to this area of Santa Rosa Beach since before we married 25 years ago! My parents have owned a cabin on the bay since I was a little girl so I grew up on these beautiful beaches! When the opportunity developed for us to buy our own place, we were thrilled! It is our pleasure to offer our cottage as 'home' to vacationing families. We take good care of our property and we are pleased when our guests are pleased!

Why Matthew Lansing chose South Walton

We selected 'Old Florida Village' because of its wonderful location and appeal to families! It is close to everything but not commercial or congested like the more urban areas. Traffic on 30-A is slow and easy! Shh! It's our best kept secret and we don't want it to change!!

What makes this cottage unique

Comments we hear over and over again....'your cottage was so clean....the children loved the bunk beds....we loved being so close to the pool....great artwork!'

We enjoy the simplicity of just being there. Tripp and I tried to think of everything needed so you could feel 'right at home.'

This was our 4th trip to OFV, staying at different cottages each time and this one was our favorite so far! It has everything you need and nothing you don't! It was immaculate when we arrived and very comfortable - everything worked great! We loved the location and the price - best bang for your buck! We will def be back! Owners were super nice and communicative.

This cottage was fantastic and had everything you could possibly need. Beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Property is as described, if not better. It was in clean, immaculate condition. Walking distance to beach. Pool is right across the street, with another one only a little ways away. Excellent communications with the owner.Highly Recommended !

This cottage was perfect and exactly as described...even better! I can't say enough about this cottage. We loved all of it! The neighborhood is so quiet and gorgeous with lush landscaping. The pool being right across the street was so convenient. Inside the house was spectacular and had everything we needed. We walked to the beach every day and really enjoyed the scenery. The owners are amazing and worked with us one on one. During a minor incident (that was my fault) Regina answered her phone immediately and the situation was resolved. Best owners ever, and best beach cottage ever! We can't wait to come back! :-)

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Regina was a pleasure to work with, Beautiful home in VERY nice neighborhood. We Love the pool, being right across the street. When we did walk to beach, it was short walk. Very clean and comfy. We cooked a lot, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The grill and washer/ dryer was very convenient to have at the home. Love the big tub in the master bath. It was a great place, close to everything we wanted to do. Had a wonderful time and would recommend this home. Very relaxing there, loved it!

This property is just as promised - super clean, quiet and friendly neighborhood, great access to all things without being in the thick of them, and charming. We enjoyed our week here and had all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is quiet and nicely tucked away from the main road but well within walking distance of just about anything you'd like. The neighbors were super friendly and welcoming - always a wave and hello when out and about. The home was well stocked and supplied with all you will need.

We enjoyed the area and local flavor. Everyone walks or bikes everywhere! And, be prepared to say hello to everyone you cross paths with - it is that friendly down there. The beaches are beautiful - prettier than any photo can do justice to. We were lucky to have great weather and able to enjoy the outdoors daily.

Regina is wonderful to wok with - she answered all my questions and even called to check on us one evening when some pretty intense storms were rolling through.

Lots of great parks to visit and walk through, lovely little seaside towns to visit.

We would recommend this to anyone wanting a getaway - and a nice place of your own to call 'home' during your visit.
