About Robert Barrow

We bought our home here in 2005 after several years of enjoying the beautiful area. With a background in construction, rental property and real estate, we have started doing beach rentals, so we can share these pristine beaches with guests and new visitors to the area .We are a family business with the understanding of what it takes to make a quiet stress free environment. You have our personal cell numbers and the commitment that your stay with us is of utmost importance .When you rent one of our units you will soon understand that our beach homes are a place you will want to rent again and again. We value family and friends and cant wait to make your stay one of many to remember. Boat trips, sunset cruises ,snorkel, diving, fishing and shelling are available upon request , we would love to take you out on our boat.

Why Robert Barrow chose North West Florida

The ambiance and serenity is all you are looking for and more. This house is just a minute from the beach and great relaxation. While sitting out front looking out you can see the beautiful beach from afar sipping on your morning coffee. If you are a family or just a couple looking to get away this is the place for you to relax and enjoy yourselves just as much as we do. We always do shelling in the morning or whenever you feel like it. At night a moonlight stroll along the beach you can see nature and its beauty. The little crabs come out at night which is always fun to see. This is a great place to be to enjoy a relaxing fun get away.

What makes this cottage unique

It is quiet, friendly neighborhood, with easy wallking distance to groceries, resturants, internet cafes, shopping, bike trails, water sports.

The perfect vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Mexico Beach and it could not have been more perfect. Everyone is so friendly, everywhere we ate the food was amazing. Staying here your in walking distance of so much (walk down to Caribbean coffee every morning the place is perfect!) The house is so nice and clean, you are a short walk from the beach which makes it so convenient! The outside shower was so nice after a long day at the beach. Being on the canal was perfect for a little fishing or just relaxing at night. We honestly can't wait to go back!! I'll recommend this house to anyone I know looking for a perfect vacation spot!!

Sweet place.

  • 5 of 5

Dock out back and the beach is right down the street. What more could you ask for? How about a grill, picnic table, lounge chairs, a swing and most important a clean and cute interior. We found this to be a perfect little place. Plus the fact that we were allowed to bring our dog was icing on the cake. Hope to visit again someday.

Great little cottage, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cottage, just steps from the beach and Mexico Beach fishing pier. When we arrived, it was very clean, and had all the amenities we were looking for. While we come down to the forgotten coast every year, this was our first stay in Mexico Beach. We really enjoyed the area, great restaurants, and very friendly folks. Don't miss checking out the pizza place just up the street, it was some of the best I've ever had.

I would definitely stay at this property again, and the Barrows were super to work with. Hope we can get back soon.

Cute cottage and owners easy to deal with

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is cute from the colors on the outside of the house all the way inside to interior design with attention to detail. Cute but small. We expected small so was absolutely okay with a small bathroom. The kitchen was spacious and well laid out. The enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water was a true bonus. We put extra beach towels and toiletries in it before leaving for the beach each day and used it before entering the house.

The owners even dropped off a wicker couch on the front porch while we were there. We looked up the google maps satellite version of the house and you can see just how much work the owners have done on the house in the last year or so.

Do yourself a favor and stay at this cottage and eat at nearby Killer Seafood. The cottage is convenient to a lovely pottery gift shop, beaches, and decent restaurants.
