Affordable snowbird retreat!!! It's not too late to escape a miserable, bitter winter of shoveling snow!!!
Remodel just complete December 5th! AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY

Everything about this home is PEACEFUL and EASY...no stairs, no snow, no fees.
Great location, quiet neighborhood, private marina access, 2 blocks to the beautiful bay; and only a 5 minute drive to world famous Grayton Beach and 10 minutes to Seaside.

Enjoy a great winter escape at this 3 bedroom, 2 bath, dog friendly, ground level, single story home that offers a spacious, cozy retreat (the whole house and yard are yours), just 10 minutes from all the great restaurants, bars, and shops on 30A.

Bask in the healing power of our majestic beaches; hike or drive the state forest trails accessible just a half a mile from the house; enjoy a boating or paddling adventure on the bay; bike the 18+ mile bike path along scenic Highway 30A; and enjoy the area's numerous award-winning bars, restaurants, one-of-a-kind shops, and golf courses!

This home's backyard features a zen meditation garden, futon swing, orbital lounger, new fire pit, new paver patio, and wooden yoga deck. Enjoy your morning coffee and read the paper on southern-facing the front porch. The large front yard (no neighbors directly across the street) offers plenty of space for parking for your boat and/or RV.

The master suite offers a four-poster queen bed with newly remodeled deep soaking tub and shower with elegant glass subway tile surround in the en suite bathroom.
The 2nd bedroom offers a queen bed, closet, and mini fridge. And the 3 bedroom is set up as a yoga studio/meditation room or artist's studio with giant mirror & room for 3 yoga mats.

This house offers a lot of flexibility. The second and third bedrooms can be either bedrooms or office/studio space. They both offer great sunlight during the day and provide a quiet peaceful environment for reading, writing or working.

The giant sectional sofa in living room features a chaise lounge, queen sleeper, and full sized sofa (house can sleep up to 8 comfortably). The living room and dining room also offer additional office spaces (desk and chair). Electric fireplaces in living room and master bedroom add additional heat & ambiance, so it's easy to be comfy and cozy.

Full kitchen with microwave, stove, oven, Belgian waffle maker, blender, and ice maker.
Strong WiFi and good cell phone service by most carriers (unlike many places directly on the beach in this area).

This home sits on a quarter acre lot and has 6 ft privacy fencing in the backyard. The outdoor yoga deck, orbital lounger, and futon swing are fabulous spots to bask in the sun and recharge your battery.

Other fun features of this home are an indoor dart board, ladies cruiser bicycle (with removable stand that makes it an indoor stationary bike if you prefer to exercise/train inside). Launch your kayaks
or paddleboards at my paddle hut at the marina one block away... or use my canoes (free).

Since this is my personal property, and I handle the listing, there are no additional fees (other than taxes as required) like you'll find on VRBO and other sites that charge almost as much in fees as the rental itself. I have seen similar listings charge a rental fee, travel fee, processing fee, cleaning fee, pet fee, and tax that equaled 58% of the actual rental!

I prefer to find one person or couple (and their fur baby(s) of course) to stay for the winter months my home is available. I am willing to offer a discount too for the perfect match who wants the house for the whole time it's available.

Additional Boating Information:

Renters get access to the private marina one block from the house where I have my seasonal business offering stand up paddleboard lessons, tours, rentals and paddleboard yoga. The marina has a boat ramp that sits on a secluded 1/2 mile canal that opens into the Choctawhatchee Bay. It's the best-kept secret in Walton County! You can cruise the Bay, fish, ski, and visit a few local restaurants/bars. You can keep your boat trailer in my yard and keep your boat (temporarily) at my dock. Contact me if you have any specific questions about your boat at this location.

Additional Pet Information:

This is my primary residence I am renting while I'm away this winter for work. I have 2 dogs and this home is very dog friendly. It's all one level and has tile floors throughout and bamboo floors in the bedrooms with area rugs. The whole lot is 1/4 acre and the backyard offers 6 ft privacy fencing with grass and natural (pine straw) areas. My dogs love to bask in the sun on the yoga deck. The yard offers sun and shade on most days. We have cool dog-owner neighbors on all 3 sides. Great, quiet neighborhood for dog walking. Please keep your dogs on a leash when venturing through the neighborhood. We're located just two blocks to water view of the Bay, one block to the private marina, a 10 minute walk to extensive state forest hiking trails, and a 5 minute drive to the beach (special permit is required for dogs to access the beach). Dogs are welcome pretty much everywhere else in this area, including numerous restaurant patio areas (will supply a list of our favorites). Your well-behaved angels with fur are very welcome in our home! Come and enjoy!

Queen Sleeper Sofa Section sofa in living room offers chaise lounge, queen sleeper sofa and full size sofa
This cottage sits in between the Pt Washington State Forest and the Choctawhatchee Bay. It is a locals neighborhood that is wooded, peaceful and comfortable. No neighbors directly across the street. Sliding glass doors in dining room look out onto the private backyard with meditation garden, yoga deck, paver patio, and fire pit... and a delightful community of birds and squirrels.
