About the property

3 Bedroom / 3 Bathroom Sleeps 12

“Twist of Lime” is a lovely beach house located in the exclusive Old Florida Cottages community only 200 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. Your are just a few yards to the heated community pool, grill area, and cabana. Under new ownership as of August 2016, all new housewares, small appliances, and upgrades throughout!

This three story 2,000 sqft beach home can sleep up to 12. An open floor plan allows the living room, dining room, and kitchen to overlook one another providing the ideal setting for family gatherings and entertainment. The house has 3 decks to enjoy the tranquil surroundings.

Our private community is perfect for those who want to enjoy a luxury lifestyle while vacationing on the Emerald Coast of Florida. Imagine a lovely neighborhood nestled just a short walk from the Gulf. You will be enchanted by the lushly landscaped palm tree lined brick paved pathways and white picket fences. Beach access is uncrowded, secluded and quiet, with no roads to cross and a lifeguard station immediately at the beach entrance. There are restrooms, an outdoor shower, and a shaded picnic area for your pleasure and use. When returning from a day at the beach, you can enjoy a walk through the community's many arbor-covered foot paths. We have an outdoor shower to rinse off and a box of beach supplies (boogie boards, noodles, toys) for you to enjoy.

Need some variety? Twist of Lime is conveniently located walking distance to Gulf Place for great dining and shopping options. Grayton Beach and Seaside are nearby where you can not only explore fabulous art galleries and an array of funky shops, but also experience live theatre, world-class dining, and free outdoor music and movies.

Nice neighborhood and location

  • 3 of 5

The highlight to our stay was that the walk to the beach is very easy. We also found Gulf Place to be convenient for a meal, drink or cup of coffee. The pool and grill areas are nice and convenient as some of the other reviews noted. We typically find guest reviews helpful, but we felt that some of the previous reviews over stated the home itself. The new owners will need to invest in floors, furniture, fixtures and repairs to bring it up to what we expected. The small decks and outdoor furniture are very weathered and not very comfortable. The house has a lot of great space and potential, but it is quite warn. Our 3 star rating is probably a little generous.

Cute interior. Comfortable layout. Plenty of space.

  • 4 of 5

We liked it. The area was nice. I liked the walk back and forth to the beach everyday. It was approximately 1/3 mile from door to waves.

The house decor was nice. There was plenty of space and the layout was nice.

Just what we wanted..

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a 30A retreat with easy access to the beach, amenities/restaurants close by, and a clean, beautiful place with all the comforts of home - and that's exactly what we got!

We like to cook, enjoy our coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening. Over our week stay, we developed this lovely routine of retreating to our private balconies with our 1st cup of coffee (2 of the bedrooms each have a private balcony, plus another one off of the living room), and then we'd grab a second cup and stroll down the beach with it. In the evenings, we'd grab a glass of wine (plastic wine glass, of course, which the home provided), and walk out to the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunset. The kitchen was well-stocked with the necessary tools, cutting board, decent knives, pans, dishes, etc to make several of our favorite meals - and kudos to the owner for having both white and red wine glasses. <3 We liked that people could spread out and sleep on 3 different levels of the home. We especially liked that the kids made the upstairs loft their TV room, while the main level became adults only after 9pm.

It's probably the most convenient home in the neighborhood in proximity to the gas grills and pool entrance, and thank goodness for the shower AND the hose right off the back deck, so that we could rinse off without dragging sand into the house. We walked to the Local for dinner one night, excellent!! And, so was the Perfect Pig! Buddy's had some surprisingly decadent ice cream flavors. We were hoping to rent SUP boards from Buddy's one day, but the Gulf was just too rough during our stay. We will definitely be back, and hope to try that next time! We also learned that you can hire a permitted company to build you a little firepit/fire right on the beach - we'd love to try that in the spring or fall. Wish we were there now..

Great place, nice updates!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay at this house. Can't ask for a better location such a short walk to the beach and no highway to cross. The house is very homey and comfortable...appreciate all the recent updates like new pots and pans, plates, glasses, and nice new linens throughout. We enjoyed having some beach toys and boogie boards to borrow. Gulfplace is super close and fun with Walking Wine night and free concerts on Sundays! We had a great time here and will definitely be back soon!

Just needs a little attention to the details

  • 3 of 5

I really loved dealing with Courtney. She was amazing and very attentive, the only thing I noticed is that the dishes in the house were chipped and there was not enough of them or the silver wear. There was only one wine glass that was actually glass and the others were plastic with a total of 4 glasses. It was a great location though and very close to the beach. We were glad we didn't have to cross 30 A. There was also not one single beach towel. Bring your own towels!!! We had a great time though!

Owner's Response: Vanessa, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for the feedback. After speaking with you upon departure, we made sure all items you mentioned were updated and added. We do not provide beach towels for any of our rentals as they always go missing. :( We do tell guest in the welcome email to bring their own as they are not provided. Again, thank you for vacationing with us and for the feedback!
