Space 1,350 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 92 nights


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.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Your house is beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us. It was super clean when we arrived! Nice, quiet spot for our family to stay and enjoy some much needed relaxation! The beaches here are beautiful as well! We are already talking/planning our next stay here! Thanks again for providing us such an awesome place to stay!

Fantastic house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely satisfied with our recent stay at Another Happy Day. The house is in a fantastic location, a couple steps away from the pool, and close enough for a stroll to the beach. Me and my wife particularly enjoyed walking our little ones down to the beach in the evenings.

The house is well kept and very clean. We did have a lightbulb out when we first arrived, but Mr. Lansing was on his way to replace it within 30 minutes of notifying him. Each owner I dealt with was very courteous and timely with their responses.

Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to vacation here again the next time we come to Santa Rosa.

Thank you!

Our absolute FAVORITE property on 30A!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Another Happy Day before, and it never disappoints!! We frequently travel to Florida , and the 30A area, this is absolutely our favorite place to stay!! It's always clean, well stocked with everything we need to feel comfortable away from home, the owners are wonderful and responsive to deal with. You cannot beat the location; it's family friendly, plenty of restaurants and activities near by, and the walk to the beach is easy and enjoyable. We can't wait to return!!!!!

Best stay in Old Florida Village so far!

  • 5 of 5

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 !
