The cottages are so cute! Exactly what we were looking for. Very clean with supplies to keep it that way. Surprisingly a lot of space give the square footage. The bedroom had plenty of storage and even a vanity and/or desk area. Drawers are built in under a closet space to hang clothes with sliding doors. The bathroom had both a mirror and a mirrored medicine cabinet plus both upper and lower cabinets. Although due to space there was no stove in this unit, the refrigerator was more than ample, and a toaster oven, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker were provided. Eating out, we really didn't use the rest of the items.
The unit was furnished great! I really wanted to take the 'weathered' bedroom and living room furniture with me but that would have been frowned upon!!! OK, after a couple days, the parrots seemed to be staring at me. Everything was in keeping with the theme, even the paper towel holder (which towels were provided plus cleaning supplies), coasters, glasses, etc. The floor was nice hard wood easy to keep clean. We didn't use the gas grill but one was right next to the porch.
Although I knew the exact location before hand, the only downside was not being on the beach. It was a short drive or walk but we had grown accustomed to staying on the beach. Very convenient to CVS, Pizza Hut, etc.
Rita was very quick to respond with instructions on check in (email comes from notifications AT alarm DOT com - check your junk folder). Thanks for a great visit!
This was a spur of the moment trip my spouse and I planned just one day before leaving. We wanted to try a different aspect to being tourist's so we chose these fantastic cottages, and I'm very happy we did! It was exactly what we were looking for. Clean simple, and cozy.
The only thing I would say for constructive feedback is the strength of the wifi. It was very slow and we were unable to download a movie from Netflix (actually we fell asleep waiting for the movie to download). The wifi was not an important factor in our stay.
We will be coming back again!!
We had a wonderful stay at the Lazy Parrot! I would highly recommend this quaint and quiet cottage. There is no pool onsite, but you are a quick walk from the beach. The Lazy Parrot is also conveniently located within walking distance to CVS. We wish we could have stayed longer!
We had a great time! Everything was amazing, from the location to the rental. We will be back!!!!
My husband and I stayed a week at this lovely little cottage. It was quiet, well maintained, a nice walk to the beach (which we did each day of our trip), and Pompano Joes. The owner was extremely helpful and was very quick in responding. This was our retirement celebration and the Lazy Parrot was just perfect. Loved the decor of the cottage. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys sitting on the porch, walking and the quiet. Miramar Beach was beautiful and not crowded. It is located in a great area for sightseeing. We will definitely come back to the Miramar Cottages. Thank you for a great stay.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lazy Parrot for 4th of July weekend and can’t say enough amazing things about it. The cottage was immaculately clean. There were plenty of bath towels provided and we loved the fact there was a decent size refrigerator to be able to go food shopping. Even though we didn’t grill, there are gas grills provided onsite as well. The cottage is literally 3 blocks from the beach, which was an easy 7 minute walk. We loved staying in Miramar Beach because it’s the perfect distance to other areas like Destin, Navarre Beach, and Santa Rosa beach – all of which we visited.
I would also like to say that the owner Rita is very helpful and extremely responsive, which we really appreciated – thank you for the amazing stay!
