About Gary Cornett

We're an active retired couple looking for an investment that would require some work but that we could also enjoy with friends and family. So we decided to invest in a Florida home on the Gulf, as the Gulf features the most beautiful beaches anywhere! We're from Franklin, Tennessee and through out the years we’ve enjoyed trips to the Gulf Coast 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 Beach with its sugar sand 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 Santa Rosa Beach

We love the tucked-away feeling that the Cottages of Santa Rosa Beach offer 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 Walline 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!

A Stroll Away...

  • 4 of 5

A quick walk to the beach and lots of great restaurants. We enjoyed the front porch for reading and relaxing. The owner was also very accommodating and very responsive to any questions we had. Thanks for a great stay.

Pictures did not depict dirt road or the lack of a walk way to the rear patio which over looked a drainage retention pond. Owner never offered these aspects during discussions prior to renting. In addition we were charged a fee for using our credit card to pay for the rental even though the owner accepted our credit card as part of the down payment to secure the unit. Nice home but could have been more transparent.

Great property conveniently located in a quaint neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandy Feet for 6 days this summer. It is a nice home in a small neighborhood (for now) that is a mix of permanent residents and renters. About 1/3 of a mile from Gulf Place entertainment and a wonderful public beach, and conveniently located to Destin, Miramar Beach and all the quieter beaches along 30a. Owners keep the house well equipped. It was nice to have a beach cart and extra umbrella. Each day I drove our gear down and back, but it can be walked easily. Many nights we cooked at the house, others we Ubered to local restaurants. Overall a wonderful, relaxing week. We'd stay in the house again with no hesitation.

Sandy Feet 2017 much needed vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Pulled up to the property and it was picture perfect from the outside all the way in through out the house. It fit our family perfect!! It was within walking distance of the beach, coffee shop, ice cream, and pizza place. Quick drive to the stores for groceries. The guys had a great time inshore and deep sea fishing. Gary was very helpful with tips and information on where to go exploring hiking, the pier, Jongle rentals and so much more. We are already talking and planning another family stay here!!
