About John Witherspoon

As someone who has been in and around the Destin and 30A area since I was a child, I have come to love what this area has to offer. I originally built the one bedroom guest cottage in 2006 with plans to expand the home over the next few years. In 2014, I decided it was time and added the two bedroom home as this is where I hope to eventually retire.

I choose to build at this location as it backs up to the state forest allowing for added privacy. The dirt road where the home sits reminds me that even though the 30A area has been built up over the last few decades, I can still remember the old times when most roads in this area where all dirt.

I hope that on your visit you enjoy the area as much as I do and make many memories in this special slice of paradise I am happy to call home.

John Witherspoon purchased this guest house in 2006

Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage with our little dog. The location was very peaceful with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and grocery. The cottage was lovely and very clean. It had everything we needed for the week (with the exception of a pitcher for ice tea). We especially loved the huge porches where we spent a lot of time. A tip for dog owners: you are not allowed to walk your dog on the beach unless you are a property owner and have a license. The house backs up to a wooded area with trails, one that takes you into a nice residential neighborhood. So there are lots of places to walk your dog, just not on the beach. We had a very pleasant and relaxing week!

4 years and counting!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a wonderful retreat! We have visited Santa Rosa for the past 4 years and have stayed in this cottage each time. The high end finishes and well stocked kitchen are great but the covered porch is where we spend most of our time. (Added bonus: After sunset, the whippoorwills and peepers begin their nightly serenades.) Between the gated yard and the double car garage, our pup, bikes and car are kept safe and cool. We love this place! Thank you!

Love the property and the location.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle, which we love, yet still a short distance to the beach. Love that it is pet friendly too. The deck is a great place to relax, grill dinner and just enjoy your surroundings. This was our 2nd time renting from John and we will do so again!

Perfect rental for pet owners!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the week in the main house. We had an excellent time and found the property to be exactly as described. We had our two fur babies with us and you won't find a better property if you are traveling with your dogs. Short bike ride to the ocean and very quiet neighborhood. Will definitely stay here again. We come to 30A at least twice a year and have stayed in many nice rentals. John was a pleasure to rent from. Thanks so much for sharing your place with us!!

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the secluded nature of this beach house near the State forest, yet close to the beach. The weather was wonderful the entire weekend. Our family really enjoyed the hammock on the top deck! Thank you again! I'm sure we will be back again.

Exceeded all expectations, restored my faith in VRBO and we now have a "Go To" place saved.

  • 5 of 5

Based on history, one would think that my wife and I have an allergy to VRBO. We have gotten it wrong so many times, it's almost embarassing. So much so, that I have all but sworn it off. However, we needed to get to the beach for some R&R and this cottage seemed like it couldn't go wrong.

Well, I cannot tell you how relieved we were when we arrived to find a spotless, attractive, perfectly landscaped bucolic little property. Literally, upon arrival and simply after parking, we were already ecstatic.

We traveled with our little pooch, therefore the fenced in yard, with ample (and again, perfectly landscaped) grass, was a welcome site, but also was the fact that the property lines up with access to the state forest - literally out the back door. This means that our pooch and I got to go for a jog in the woods EVERY SINGLE MORNING while we were there. That just doesn't happen on beach trips, or so we thought. I even brought my mountain bike down and got to enjoy that back there.

Inside the property - the cottage is extremely spacious, perfectly appointed, spotless and perfectly distributed. The kitchen was perfect for some real hardcore cooking (We love to really challenge ourselves in the kitchen on vacations, and Goatfeathers is a short bike ride away for absolutely amazing fish at great prices). The sitting area was nice and big and very comfortable, with a gargantuan flat screen TV. The bathroom was 4 star hotel quality with a fantastically luxurious shower, great water pressure, tons of clean linens and full sized washer and dryer. Goodness, that was convenient.

My favorite was the enormous back porch. We took every single meal out there, lounged and read books in the lounge chairs and happily snored away in the hammock. All of the patio furniture seemed top notch, high quality and comfortable. Because it is on the second floor, and has two big outdoor fans, there was always a soothing breeze coming through.

The location is just two very blocks off of 30A, but that street has direct access to the beach - long story short, the short bike ride in bathing suits became a highlight. At the right place, being off the beach was even BETTER?!?!

And I can't say enough about how attentive John was. He is obviously a consumate professional and cares deeeply for the happiness of his guests. We were even some pleased, we opted to stay for another night, and he made that seamless.

You cannot go wrong with this place.
