Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Cottage is one block or about 200 yards from the kind of wide, white sand beach the Florida panhandle is famous for.

Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? If you want elaborate landscaping, my cottage is not the best for you. The cottage does have a nice open air porch in the front.

Now if you want a home that is on the beach, my cottage is not quite there, yet. Maybe, with global warming, it will be, soon.

Rental period is Saturday to Saturday except November and December holiday season.

Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.

Maximum capacity is 7 or 8 with a king in master, 2 twins in middle bedroom and bunkbed in front bedroom with full on bottom and twin on top.

Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in and ready for your dog to roam free or run around in circles, endlessly chasing it's tail.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy the fresh breeze, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.

You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

The beach a short walk down the street is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

About Mark Barnhart

I feel responsible to ensure you enjoy your visit when you stay at my vacation rental. I desire to have a home where fond memories are created to last a lifetime.

Mark Barnhart purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Mark Barnhart chose North West Florida

Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! .

Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

What makes this cottage unique

Beach chairs, wagon, 3 beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.

Everything we needed and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice and clean. Lots of storage space, supplies and beach gear. Chairs, umbrellas, wagons, etc... It was very peaceful being off the main highway and the walk to the beach was pretty short. Owner was great and very responsive to all of our emails. We arrived a little early and met Faye, she was very helpful and informative. This was the most pleasant experience we've had over the years traveling to the area. We highly recommend this rental!

Summer fun!

  • 5 of 5

We took out daughter and three grandchildrenand our fog for a week of summer fun! Perfect location. Short walk to the pet friendly beach. Docked our boat at the Marina, just a short drive. Caught lots of fish, found lots of shells and sand dollars, cooked hot dogs and marshmallow on the beach. Lots of rain while we were there, so played several rounds of Clue! Thanks Mark for renting us your home! The Gualdoni's

The Forgotten Coast is unforgettable.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I opened the front door to the beach cottage it felt like home. Clean and comfortable. My husband and I, along with our 6yr. old Wheaten Terrier spent 2 months escaping our NEPA winter and it was great. There wasn't a thing we needed that wasn't provided by Mark's well appointed cottage. From necessities to beach accoutrements, it was all there. We did have a couple of minor issues to which Mark responded promptly. The area/neighborhood was perfect, quiet, laid back, friendly, safe and just a short walk to the dog-friendly beach, which Willow loved. Great proximity to Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe, Tyndall AFB, Apalachicola and Panama City Beach. We will be back, hopefully to this Beach Cottage, definitely to the Forgotten Coast.
