Located between Seaside and Destin in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Fancy Free is a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath cottage that is part of a small Family Oriented neighborhood of only 75 cottage style homes called Old Florida Village. A community pool a couple of houses down makes keeping tabs on those loved ones especially convenient, and beach access is a short walk (.4 mile).

This 'Smoke-Free' Florida Cottage-style home features clapboard siding, a tin roof and 4 covered porches. Morning coffee and gentle sea breezes can be enjoyed in comfortable outdoor furniture off the private porches. The cottage is professionally furnished and decorated with overstuffed casual yet elegant furnishings that create a classy Caribbean beach ambience. The cottage comfortably sleeps 8 with one King bed, one Queen,and a twin over full bunk with trundle.

Our location is convenient to fine dining like Bud and Alleys and The Pizza Bar in Seaside, Criollas in Grayton Beach, and Stinky's in Dune Allen, and Fish out of Water in Watercolor as well as funky dining with great jazz at Picolos and the Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We are within walking distance to Gulf Place with boutique shops, outdoor dining, bike rentals, Sunday night concerts on the green and ice cream at Miss Lucilles Gossip Parlor. The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club is also nearby with two holes overlooking the Gulf as well as gulf front dining. Eighteen miles of bike paths along the beach and coastal dune lakes make exercise a fun and interesting event. The largest designer outlet mall in the country is a 10 minute drive in San Destin.

Large TVs and DVDs for movies in all bedrooms and the living room provide a nice respite after the sun and surf of the day. For those interested in cyber-surfing, Fancy Free has high speed wireless internet connection. A Sony Play Station keeps even the most rambunctious entertained for hours

About Susan Jacobsohn

The best place that I can be is at the beach.

Susan Jacobsohn purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Susan Jacobsohn chose Santa Rosa Beach

After visiting many many beaches in the US we came to The Beaches of South Walton on an anniversay getaway in 1998. 2 months later we owned a place in Destin. In 2005 we decided to look for a larger place that we could really spend more time enjoying. We have been in love with Santa Rosa Beach ever since. It is our favorite place to be!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This has got to be one of the best rentals on 30A. As nice as the pictures are they do not begin to show you how really lovely it is, especially since there has been remodeling done since the pictures were taken. The cottage is so clean, spacious and comfortable with a well equip kitchen. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space as well as the living room is large enough for everyone to be together! The neighborhood is nice, well maintained, and safe. We especially enjoyed how quiet it was in the evening.

Thank you Susan for sharing your vacation home! We will definitely come back to Fancy Free.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Fancy Free! The house was extremely well kept, homey, and had everything we could possibly need! The house was perfect for our weekend vacation to just a enjoy a few relaxing days on the beach! The area was very cute and enjoyable to walk around each morning! We were able to enjoy our coffee on the balcony each morning and take in the area! We couldn't have asked for better weather when we were down there! The beach access was very easy to get too and super convenient! Not a far walk and could also drive just a short few seconds to get there! There are plenty of eateries and shops close by that made it fun for us to enjoy a night out of yummy seafood! We will DEFINITELY be coming back to Fancy Free! The owner is very easy to talk to and makes it the easiest for you with anything you need!! Would recommend to anyone who is wanted a relaxing, fun, enjoyable trip to the beach!
