About Gary Cornett

We're an active semi-retired couple and were seeking a project to take on that involved some work but that we could also enjoy ourselves with friends and family. So we decided to invest in a Florida home on the Gulf, as the Gulf features the most beautiful beach anywhere! We're from Franklin, Tennessee and through out the years we’ve enjoyed many trips to the Destin area and have always enjoyed the beauty of the Gulf. Wanting to escape the crowds at Destin we came upon the lovely community of Santa Rosa with its quiet sugar beaches, bike paths and walking trails and eclectic selection of restaurants and we knew that the combination of was perfect for us and guests both now and in the future! For now we will rent home so others can enjoy it too!

Gary Cornett purchased this house in 2012

Why Gary Cornett chose South Walton

We love the tucked-away feeling that the Cottages of Santa Rosa Beach offers as well as the nature preserves that surround the area and the lovely beach, bike paths and small community feel. The beach is a short walk away, or a 1 minute drive. Plus, the communities of Grayton Beach, Seaside, Rosemary Beach are short drives down scenic Hwy 30A. We also love the close-by restaurant selection from The Red Bar to Stinky’s Fish Camp to La Playa and the Growler Garage. There are plenty of great restaurants along 30A.

What makes this house unique

The designated Ed Waline public beach access with showers and restrooms, bike paths, preserve, as well as the unique restaurant and bar selection. But what we really love more than anything are the quiet evenings on our front porch after a walk on the beach at sunset. The sunsets on this beach are spectacular and are different every night. Brilliant oranges, pink and silver. Gorgeous!

Paradise at Sandy Feet

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage! Sandy Feet was a home away from home experience. From the fully stocked kitchen, to the comfortable beds, and spacious floor plan it was perfect. We truly enjoyed our stay and are counting down the days til our next visit in summer 2017. The beach was a very short stroll down a paved sidewalk/bike trail to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The emerald green waters and sugary white sands were awesome and the locals were sooo nice to us. Great dining all over the place and too many sttractions to mention were within a short commute. If you are interested in a place truly vacation, this is it. The pictures don't do this home any justice. The rooms were and loft area were much larger than depicted and having a flat screen in each was a bonus on the days we hung around all day. My wife and I brought along 6 children under 17 yrs old and we never felt crowded (we had room easily for another). Santa Rosa is a quiet community away from all of the high rises and traffic associated with vacationing in Destin or Panama City, but is close enough to both to visit those areas to enjoy the waterparks and other amusements for the kiddos. All in all, I cant say enough good thing about this place and I wish I could give it 6 stars. Thanks Gary from the Roberts Family

Great location, perfect house, completely stocked, wonderful price.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at The Sandy Feet home. The home was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Open floor plan made the house feel spacious. The newer neighborhood was quiet, friendly and safe. We had two families. It slept 8 comfortably and actually had a futon for an additional 2 if needed. It was about 4 blocks from the public beach access and The Gulfplace. Everything we needed was always within reach. We will definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my third visit to this beautiful home. I love this house, obviously, since I keep coming back. It had everything we needed for our family vacation! Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, very spacious home. And most important for me - it was very clean. Loved sitting outside on the front porch in the evening. Neighbors were very nice and friendly. The owner's were wonderful to work with. The walk to the beach was very easy. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Gary and Debbie for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Quality home in quiet neighborhood located close to an exceptional beach.

  • 5 of 5

We followed our first visit of 3 months in 2015 with a 4 month stay in 2016 at Sandy Feet. Debbie and Gary are committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We already booked our extended stay in 2017!

We highly recommend this clean and tidy well-appointed property and the neighborhood. Santa Rosa Beach and the adjacent beach communities are family friendly. There are numerous fabulous restaurants within an easy walk.

Lots of musical entertainment and activities available, listings of upcoming events are posted in the complimentary beach news papers as well as the bulletin boards of the many restaurants.

Great bike trail along Hwy 30A, and a fine beach for walking, jogging, or pedal biking (yes the wet sand offers a good workout right next to the waves, best to ride at low tide!)

Enjoyable Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this lovely beach property. As before, the house was suited for our large group with enough room for everyone to be comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and we loved the convenience to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The owners were eager to please and make the stay enjoyable.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family's vacation. It is about .4 miles to the beach (never took us more than 5-8 minutes to walk there), and is in a very nice quiet area. The pictures on the site do not do this house justice. The rooms upstairs are huge, and we had more than enough room (six adults, one child). It is very nicely updated, clean, and homey. The owners are very friendly and responsive and I would highly recommend this property.
