About Francis (Bill) Muldowney III
My first career was in the USAF. I discovered the area when I was stationed at Eglin AFB in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing flying the F4E.. My second career was with Verizon Wireless and when I travelled which was a lot I was always looking for a place to retire. I kept being drawn back to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. When I moved to Nashville a friend suggested I buy a house in Destin since I was always talking about the beaches.. Three weeks after that conversation I came down for the weekend and purchased my home in South Walton County next to the Topsail Preserve. The architect gave me plans for a cottage and two years later I built the Little Cottage. The area has grown quite a bit since my arrival with many positive additions to our community from shopping . grocery stores, bike paths, , fabulous restaurants and a first class Hospital. Even though I traveled extensively in both my careers and lived all over the states as well as overseas it is hard to pry me away from Santa Rosa Beach..
Francis (Bill) Muldowney III purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Francis (Bill) Muldowney III chose Dune Allen Beach
The Little Cottage is quite unique based on its location near the Topsail Preserve and the areas amazing beaches. You will be hard pressed to find a private one bedroom cottage with a 38 foot pool on one side and a hot tub on the other surrounded by nature. I'm just sayin!

Quick getaway for no reason.
It was an incredible place to stay, we were in relax mode as soon as we walked in, it feels like your in the middle of no where. But everything you could want is just a minute or two away. The cottage was amazing very spacious but cozy and everything you needed was there. We enjoyed the pool an grill and the peaceful nature around us. Our host an new friend Bill was very helpful and nice. Can't say enough good things about our trip. We'll be back soon.
Great location , close to everything , yet still private
Nice little place, comes with everything you need.
The little cottage was absolutely perfect for a getaway on our honeymoon. The atmosphere was quiet and private. Bill was right there and ready to help when we needed anything at all! We will be back, we loved everything about it!
We had such an AWESOME too short 5 night stay at Bill's FABULOUS cottage!! He had EVERYTHING you would need in the cottage. So nice and quiet!! We went to beach 1st day we were there, but all the other days we just stayed around cottage and pool. Loved having pool all to ourselves with no kids, loud people with music blaring, etc!! Couldnt have asked for a more RELAXING stay!! We hope to come back next year!! We grilled out on gas grill 4 of the 5 nights. Thanks Bill for sharing your FABULOUS cottage with us!!
The Little Cottage
The Little Cottage is a perfect place to stay. Everything was clean and ready when we got there. The location is the perfect distance from the beach and food, but far enough away that the crowds were never a factor. I would highly recommend The Little Cottage to anyone!
Beautiful rental, close to beautiful beaches
The rental was even more beautiful in person vs. in the pictures. It was a perfect location for being away from the hustle and bustle of Destin, yet close to everything you'd want to have on a quiet vacation. The cottage had everything you'd ever need, and the privacy of the pool and surroundings made it ideal for recharging. Having the owner on the property was a huge asset! Bill is wonderful, and welcoming, and inviting both in the planning process as well as helping to make your stay enjoyable. He was there to answer questions and make recommendations on where to find the best beach, best places to shop, and the best food in the area. Thank you for making our stay so relaxing!
The cottage is 1500 feet from the gulf and one of the most pristine beaches in Florida and on the eastern edge of the Topsail State Preserve with beautiful biking and walking paths
