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.

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 South Walton

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!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Want to have a great trip with family, and in a place that's pooch friendly. This is it! Quiet and relaxed, and plenty of safety for the kids to ride their bikes. The place was perfect- clean, big and in a location convenient to everything in SRB.

Great vacation with the family!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great. The house felt like a home during the week we were there. Great location, cute neighborhood and minutes from the beach. Having beach chairs in the shed for our use was a little perk that helped us out! Saved space in our car! Kitchen was well equipped and made eating at home a few nights easier. We really had a relaxed, great time. Can't wait to plan next summer.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Old Florida Village and our first stay at "Fancy Free"! We loved it here! The location is great with the close proximity to the pools worked out very well for all of us. We have stayed in this complex before and enjoyed the easy access to the beach beside Goatfeathers. The accommodations were very homey and had everything we needed to make our family beach vacation complete. The owner is so easy to work with and responds timely. We would highly recommend this beach house for families or couples. We found the house clean and tidy and would like to return someday. Thank you for a wonderful time in Santa Rosa Beach!

Footloose and Fancy Free for sure!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I found this gem while doing a Vrbo search for a quick trip to Fl. I needed a house that was big enough for three adults and two children. From the very beginning, the owner responded to my emails and made booking a breeze. From the moment we arrived in the neighborhood, we could tell that this was a great place for families! The houses are set back far enough from 30a so that the kids can ride bikes safely. The house itself was spotless and well appointed. The kitchen was so well stocked that we needed up staying in and cooking each night. The kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds and the adults slept well in the large, cozy beds. The house is within walking distance to several restaurants and shops. We will definitely book a trip back to this house next year!!!
