About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

'Time Out' is the closest cottage to the beach in this family-oriented community of Old Florida Beach Cottages. Brick pavers, white picket fences, and tropical plants greet you upon arriving into this relaxed, friendly neighborhood.

On the ground floor of the cottage you will find the spacious master bedroom with a French door which leads to a front porch furnished with comfortable wooden Adirondack chairs. The master bathroom includes a separate tub and shower. Down the hall is the second bedroom which offers a queen-sized bed with an adjacent full bath to share with a 3rd bedroom with a daybed. A hall storage area is the perfect place to find BEACH CHAIRS, UMBRELLAS, FLOATS, cart, beach and pool toys for our guests to enjoy! Upstairs is the living area with comfortable seating and a large flat-screen TV. A French door leads to a 2nd story porch where you can enjoy the breeze and the rustle of the nearby palms. An open kitchen/living room allows everyone to visit while cooking up the catch of the day! A fourth bedroom offers 2 single beds with a full bath across the hall.

Time Out Beach cottage is professionally decorated, clean and well-maintained, the closest cottage to the beach, steps to community pool, and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping, seafood market and bike rental shop.

Why Martha Smith chose South Walton

This area has so much to offer a vacationer...beautiful white sand beaches, water activities, fishing, biking, shopping, great restaurants, night spots, hiking through nearby trails of Pt. Washington Forest, golf, tennis, water sports, boating, just to name a few. If you like art and music, you will be in for a treat at the nearby Gulf Place (within easy walking distance). There is an outdoor market as well as free outdoor concerts at night.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is within walking distance of great shopping and wonderful restaurants. There is a top-notch bike path for riding over to Grayton Beach or Seaside. The beach access for my cottage is just a 3 minute walk with lifeguards on duty. The pool is great on days that you just want to lounge and swim!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable, clean and very well decorated. We could find anything we needed during our stay. There are plenty of games in the living room if the weather keeps you inside. And of course cannot beat the location: literally 3 minutes from the beach! This house is great for family vacation.

The proximity to the beach was really important to our family. We enjoyed our stay at "Time Out"!

  • 4 of 5

1. Close to the beach

2. 4 rooms allowed family to enjoy extra space

3. Beach chairs, umbrella and beach toys saved us rental fees

4. Buddy's Ice Cream right around the corner!

We had a great week and look forward to visiting again!

Great spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described from its location to the amenities. Everything was in perfect order and Martha was very easy to work with even with all of the questions that we had as first time visitors to this location. The walk to the beach was a 3 minute stroll on a paved walkway without having to cross any major streets. The surroundings were clean and very quiet during the entirety of our stay. The area was much less crowded than the adjacent areas such as Seaside/Seagrove - I would highly recommend this location!

Family Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Time Out. The house is very conveniently located. It was a short walk to the beach and close to a few restaurants and shops. It was as pictured on VRBO and very clean. Could have used a few more kitchen knives but overall adequate supplies. The pool is close by and although we stayed during a spring break week it was a quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the convenience. It's great to be able to walk to the wonderful restaurants and Buddy's Ice Cream shop nearby which is almost too convenient. Thanks for letting me know about the knives, so I can restock the drawer...sorry about that.

Very good house, excellent location and beach toys!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, proximity to a wonderful (and somewhat uncrowded) beach. House layout was good for my husband and me plus our two adult children. Loved the fact that we didn't have to rent beach chairs, umbrella, etc. It was not too much to carry for the half-block walk to the beach. We didn't use the community pool but it was conveniently located and looked very nice. The only thing keeping me from giving the 5-star Excellent rating is that I felt the house could have been a little better stocked - not necessarily with kitchen staples but with bathroom and laundry room staples. The good news is that we were told what to expect, the bad news is that those two little laundry detergent pods, the one roll of TP in each bathroom and the one small bar of "motel" soap in each bathroom looked so lonely! The owner was not able to accommodate our request for a late check-out but again we had been warned of that in advance and thankfully, the cleaning service was not knocking on the door for us to get out at the exact check-out time.

Owner's Response: Yes, I am very upfront in the rental agreement about paper products, etc. that you can expect to be there as well as checking in/out times. It's always hard to leave the beach!!! :)

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home and Old Florida Cottages neighborhood, and the proximity to the beach. Very comfortable and quiet - it had everything we needed for the beach. Only negative is that we cooked in most days and the kitchen was lacking in some of the expected utensils; and, coffee cups and glasses were in short supply. We'll return next summer!
