Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Mexico Beach

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Classic Florida beach cottage tastefully decorated, beautifully updated. This 3 bed / 2 bath house is less than 300 ft to the white sandy beach! It is located on the beachside of Hwy. 98 so NO CROSSING THE HIGHWAY to get to the beach. Enjoy gulf views and ocean breezes from the screened porch and covered patio.

The kitchen boasts all stainless steel appliances, gorgeous granite countertops and is fully stocked with everything you need to cook meals if you so desire. We also have both a gas and charcoal grill available for your use. The house is decorated with comfortable, casual, coastal furnishings. There are two queen beds and one set of bunk beds. (Linens and beach towels provided.)

And after an 'exhausting' day at the beach or a successful afternoon of fishing you will enjoy showering in the enclosed outdoor shower (hot and cold water). There is also plenty of room to park a boat and/or trailer. The large yard is well kept and grassy perfect for the kids.

The house also has Wi-Fi.

It is an easy stroll down to the beach. The beach at this area is nice and wide with lots of room on the white sand. The pier, canal, marina, city boat ramp and one of our favorites, the Shell Shack (for super fresh seafood) are all really close. It is a perfect location to enjoy all that Mexico Beach has to offer!

If you are looking for a charming, clean, private home to rent that has newer, updated furnishings...this is the beach house for you! The atmosphere is relaxing and laid-back. No doubt you and your family will make loads of great memories!

About Chrystina

This house had been our primary residence for the past five years. So when we renovated it about four years ago we did it to suit our taste. We love the beach, boating and fishing and wanted our house to reflect the casual yet simple lifesyle that we enjoy at the beach. We only recently moved after the birth of our first child to be closer to my husband's work. We miss sitting on the porch nightly enjoying the ocean breeze but are excited to share our cottage with others. We are very proud of our beach house and take pride in keeping it maintained. We hope our guests will love it as much as we do!

Chrystina purchased this cottage in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Chrystina,

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at your beach house! It was perfect. Our group of friends have been going to the beach twice a year for 13 years and your house was the cleanest and best maintained we have ever stayed in. Thank you and your family for making it so nice for us beach lovers.

There were a few very minor problems with the house, but none that would keep us from returning.

  • 5 of 5

My family greatly enjoyed our stay ! Our 4 year old cried when we had to leave and fell asleep at home with his bottle of beach sand in his arms. The short walk to the beach, the quiet neighborhood, the relaxing porch, and the fact that we did not have to cross a busy road to get to the beach was wonderful. We fell in love with Mexico Beach and the family atmosphere we enjoyed there. We will definitely recommend this clean, well equipped property to friends.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Mexico Beach, and we loved it. The weather didn't cooperate but this house was the perfect place to wait out the storm. Because we didn't get as much beach time as we wanted, the kids were comfortable staying in and playing board games and watching TV.

The location is excellent, only a short walk to the fishing pier, and easy access to the local markets and fishing outfitters.

We would love to spend more time in Mexico Beach in the future, and will definitely try to stay at this property again.

Quiet, and relaxing beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer staying here, and we absolutely love it. We love that we are able to bring our dogs, and they have a nice backyard to enjoy. Unfortunately, the dog beach on the other side of the canal is closed till February 2017.

The beach is just at the end of the street, and absolutely gorgeous. We saw a dolphin playing around one afternoon!!

The house is always clean, and well maintained.

I'm hoping to bring a group of friends down for a long weekend soon!

Cute cottage

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute beach cottage that's within a short walking distance to the beach. There were a few things that didn't work or was not provided as listed, tv did not work in bedroom, no charcoal grill, 4 lawn chairs were cracked and could not be used, spin cycle did not work on washer and dryer timer did not work. The air conditioner did not cool the house and the temperature stayed at 78 almost the entire time we were there. Although these things were broken/did not work properly or not provided we still enjoyed our stay at the beach cottage and would stay there again if we return to Mexico Beach for vacation.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. I will check on the charcoal grill because when we bought the new gas grill in the spring we still kept the small weber charcoal grill. I need to make sure it hasn't walked off. As far as the A/C not cooling and the issues with the washer and dryer, it would of been helpful for you to contact me with those items immediately so I could of had them looked at and repaired if necessary. I certainly agree that the a/c not cooling below 78 is a problem however I can't have it repaired if I don't know there is a problem. I will say that I double checked with my cleaner after I received your review and she stated that she has not had a problem with the a/c cooling nor have I had any other complaints from other guests that have stayed after you. My cleaner uses the washer and dryer every week and again she hasn't had a problem and said they are working fine. Thank you though for bringing it to my attention and I will make sure to personally check it on the next turn day. I did want to point out that I do not provide, or advertise that I provide beach chairs or umbrellas. However, many guests will leave them there upon departure for future guests.
