About the property

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.

Great place to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

10-31-2016 Thank you so much for opening your beach cottage to guests. We have thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. We were looking for a quick, quiet get away and we found it in Mexico Beach. It is so beautiful. It was nice to have all the amenities of home. The bed in the master was most comfortable, we slept well and felt rested. The kitchen had all we needed to cook the meals we ate in. The gas grill was great, we enjoyed a steak one night. The screened sun porch was really nice and we could hear the ocean waves crashing against the beach from there. It was awesome that it was such a short walk down to the beach. The sunsets were amazing! God surely knows how to paint the sky!! We really loved it here, and hope to stay again sometime. Thanks so much. The Moran's

Well maintained and clean.

We stayed a week and it was hard to leave. The cottage is well equipped, close to the water and located on a quiet street. We will be back!

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.
