Affinity, a privately-owned cottage, is one of 29 cottages built in the development of Gulfside Cottages (2002). The location is excellent - just steps to the community pool and to the beach with no roads to cross. The beach is rated #1 by USA Today.

The cottage is a cozy, two-story, single-family dwelling furnished with comfort in mind. The downstairs has the entrance, washer and dryer room, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, counter area with three stools, eating area with table and six chairs, a half bath, and the living area with two recliners, a sofa bed, and a television with VCR. Naturally, there is secured wireless Internet throughout.

The two bedrooms are upstairs, and each bedroom has its own bathroom and television. There is a queen-size bed in the front bedroom, and this bedroom has an outside porch. The master bedroom has a sleep number, king-size bed with an adjoining, enclosed sleeping porch (2 twin Murphy beds). The cottage is perfect for families. The cottage has three porches for pure relaxation, and there's parking in the front plus a covered carport. Individuals must be 25 years or older. Prefer families. No Smoking. Your family dog is welcome with prior approval for an additional $100 per dog, and your dog needs to be on a flea/tick program, beyond the chewing stage, and house broken.

Four beach towels, four beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a cooler on wheels are provided to ease your packing cares. There's a gas grill under the carport for cooking your family favorites. All of the comforts of home are provided for your ideal family vacation.

Beautiful, clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

This 2+-bedroom, 2.5 bath house was perfect for our family of 4. Next year, we will bring the inlaws because we had plenty of room. Sylvia, the owner, has everything you could want for a beach house. Beach toys, chairs, umbrella, cooler, washer/dryer, plenty of towels and blankets. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, a Keurig, toaster, blender, etc. We will definitely be booking here again. The location is perfect- near the beach and pool, and within a few minutes drive to grocery, restaurants, shopping, etc. Renting a house is definitely the way to go.

Delightful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was adorable! When we travel, we prefer homes or cottages through private individuals, and Sylvia was delightful. We would definitely stay here in the future. The walk to the beach was only a few minutes, and the pool was around the corner. She had a fully stocked kitchen, and the pantry had a lot of extra items that not all vacation homes have provided.

The beds were very comfortable. The layout was perfect for our family! Thank you Sylvia for the personal welcome.

Great Extra Touches!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Affinity for anyone looking in the Sandestin area. Located in the Gulfside Cottages area, this house was in a great location (close to the pool and just a few steps further to the beach). What made this so special was the personal touch by the owner. When we arrived, she was waiting for us on the front porch, walked us through the house and had many kitchen and bath basics already stocked for us. We had family staying in another cottage a few doors down, and, while their house was nice, it lacked that "something special" that we experienced. I knew if we had any issues (we didn't) that I could call the owner, and she would promptly respond.

Additionally, the neighborhood was very quiet and family friendly. Nice bonus - the ice cream truck swings through every afternoon!
