This cozy, whimsical, DOG FRIENDLY, island style cottage is located in the enormously popular, small beach side community of Old Florida Cottages on the south side of Scenic Hwy 30A. There are no roads to cross going to the beach...which is only 200 yards away .Or simply step out the back door and walk TEN easy steps to the newly renovated pool and picnic area.
This tropical home is perfect for a small family or two couples. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with private bath and balcony. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed with private bath and balcony. Both have flat screen cable TVs. For your convenience, each bath has a hair dryer. (Both beds have quality firm, pillow top mattresses for extra sleeping comfort.) Upstairs balconies have deep hammocks that invite you to nap daily. And, acclaimed juried artist, Tim McAllister, has created - just for Mellow Yellow - an awesome Dolphin underwater viewing mural on the upstairs landing that will captivate you and bring you a sense of calm and peace. His art can also be found in other areas of the house and his efforts have truly contributed to the uniqueness of this fun, wonderfully comfortable, home. Children love Mellow Yellow!
The first floor has an open plan with front and back porches. The living room - which has art/decor reflecting the feel of a rain forest - has a queen sleeper sofa and a flat screen color TV with DVD/Radio. There is also a CD/tape player for your enjoyment. The dining room has an oval table that will comfortably seat six. Four adjacent bar stools allow you further seating. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen makes meal prep a breeze. Whip up a batch of margaritas in the blender to sip while watching the sunset. Or, how about a 'cheeseburger in paradise' concocted on your own grill on the back porch? WiFi available.
Within walking distance are some great eateries, and delightful shopping, at Gulf Place. Scenic 30-A boasts wonderful restaurants, many of which have been written up - and rated well up there! - in Bon Appetite and other food periodicals. And Goat Feathers, just steps away, has a seafood market on site. Nearby you'll visit Silver Sands, the largest outlet mall in the States, Sandestin - with its great golf, boutique shopping, and even more fine restaurants - Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club located right on 30-A, Grayton Beach, Water Color, Rosemary beach, Alys Beach, and world renowned Seaside, where the Truman Story was filmed.
Experience beautiful beaches with sugar white sand that stays cool on the hottest day. I'm a panhandle native, lived and cruised on a 60' sailboat for well over a decade (many years in the islands) and I STILL LOVE THIS BEACH - with a passion! The stroll to get there is easy for even small children. POOL IS NORMALLY HEATED FROM MARCH 1 - OCTOBER 31. Please contact me to verify.
We would like to announce that we have a lovely, ADULT ORIENTED, sleek and very eclectic (NOT your ordinary beach rental), big sister home located in Dune Allen Beach, just a four minute drive away from Mellow Yellow...EUROPA! Very different from this cottage, but full of treats for the discerning guest...and dog friendly, too. Please see 'my other homes' noted below.
