About Kelley McLeod

This is my dream home away form home. I live in Georgia and looked for 5 years to find the perfect spot for my family. I found it, Serenity Now! The perfect area to vacation and make lasting memories. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, easy access to other beaches and shops if I want. An adorable neighborhood of homes, with the look of Seaside, all nestled together behind Goat feathers restaurant, and right off the beach access. Who could ask for more? I am so in love with this area, because it's just enough and not over crowded like some of the nearby beaches. I never want to leave when its time to go. One of our favorite places to eat is the Local Catch, just outside the neighborhood. I hope you check us out, because I know you will love Old

Florida Cottages!

Kelley McLeod purchased this house in 2013

Why Kelley McLeod chose South Walton

This is the perfect place to rent. Feels like home away from home at the beach. Beautiful neighborhood on the beach side of 30A, directly behind Goat feathers Restaurant. Decor is so peaceful and serene. Family oriented, Steps to the beach and restaurants, Close to shopping and activities, yet not overcrowded like a lot of beaches. Approximately a mile from Santa Rosa Beach Golf Course. Private feel, just right! Plenty of rooms and baths, sleeps up to10. Swimming pool across from the house, go to the beach or both!

What makes this house unique

Features 5 decks for hanging out and relaxing and a crows next for a beautiful view of the ocean. Plenty of space to get away. Neighborhood Swimming pool. I fell in love with the peaceful quiet location , yet plenty of places to eat and shop and the neighborhood is on the beach access, which makes a very short walk to the beach; parking for cars and golf carts. Golf cart rental and bike rental available nearby.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nine members of our family met at this wonderful home in June. We had a great time and the weather was beautiful. The accommodations were very nice and we had everything we needed. We were able to walk to 2 restaurants and an ice cream shop. We will definitely go again.

GREAT house, great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 2 families. 2 Kings for the parents, and a bunk room for the littles, all on the entry level. Upstairs, the kitchen and living area were so bright and open. There was also a small bedroom for our older child on this level. We declared the loft area to be the 'kid' living room - they could watch movies and keep their toys up there without cluttering up the living area :) There was also a pull out couch (we didn't need it.)

A few things I liked about this place: There were box type fans in the rooms for the kids, which provided not only nice ventilation, but a little white noise at night. There were plenty of decks if you just needed some alone time. The view from the loft deck is amazing. The pool is literally across the neighborhood street, so easy for kids to run back and forth. This was a quiet, small and safe family neighborhood, we felt perfectly OK letting our 7 yr olds ride bikes around the loop and over to Buddy's for ice cream - by themselves (a little independence and maybe a 1 minute walk, door to door.) The beach is a 3-5 minute walk. Knowing this, we took a beach cart to haul our gear. There are bathrooms and a lifeguard at the beach entrance point.

Another point about this particular house - it truly felt like you were staying at a friends cottage. It didn't have that feel of a mass-run, rental agency run unit. If you needed something, it was likely in the drawers (veggie peeler, colander, pitcher etc.) Tons of plates and serving pieces. 2 types of coffeemakers (regular and pod.) Soft blankets to snuggle in on colder mornings. We were also pleasantly surprised to find handsoap, dishwasher pods, laundry soap, etc... Maybe left from the previous renter, but nice to not have to buy when we arrived! This house was very clean and well cared for.

The owner, Kelley, was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had. We are looking forward to renting this place again!

The stay was fine!

Would have liked to use the golf cart though or have it moved from partially blocking the drive.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Serenity Now early Summer 2016. We loved it. Great location. We've stayed at Old Florida Cottages before, and also love it as a whole, but Serenity Now was even better. Clean, spacious, even closer to the beach than we've been before! Highly recommended.

Beautiful cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed in this area for years, and this cottage is one of the best we have visited. The cottage is clean, well appointed and best of all on the south side of 30A and a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed the ocean view from the upper deck as well as the community pool. We plan to stay here again in the future!
