About Francis (Bill) Muldowney III
My first career was in the USAF. I discovered the area when I was stationed at Eglin AFB in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing flying the F4E.. My second career was with Verizon Wireless and when I travelled which was a lot I was always looking for a place to retire. I kept being drawn back to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. When I moved to Nashville a friend suggested I buy a house in Destin since I was always talking about the beaches.. Three weeks after that conversation I came down for the weekend and purchased my home in South Walton County next to the Topsail Preserve. The architect gave me plans for a cottage and two years later I built the Little Cottage. The area has grown quite a bit since my arrival with many positive additions to our community from shopping . grocery stores, bike paths, , fabulous restaurants and a first class Hospital. Even though I traveled extensively in both my careers and lived all over the states as well as overseas it is hard to pry me away from Santa Rosa Beach..
Francis (Bill) Muldowney III purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Francis (Bill) Muldowney III chose Dune Allen Beach
The Little Cottage is quite unique based on its location near the Topsail Preserve and the areas amazing beaches. You will be hard pressed to find a private one bedroom cottage with a 38 foot pool on one side and a hot tub on the other surrounded by nature. I'm just sayin!

A great getaway!
We had a great stay in the Little Cottage! Bill is the perfect Host. He knows how to ensure that you have a good time! The amenities were excellent and the place offered some much needed time to decompress!
Five Star Paradise! And More!!
The Santa Rosa Beach area is beautiful beyond belief...beaches, the 30-A bike trail, hiking, parks and delightful communities, shops and restaurants. Amazingly, the Little Cottage is nestled in the midst of all this.
Yet, as wonderful as this may be, getting to know Bill, the kindest and most responsive owner ever, is the real treat. Visit once and you'll be come back, just like us!
Great expectations more than met.
The description of the property was right on.The many rave reviews did not exaggerate.
Bill was a very gracious and accommodating host.
The cottage more than satisfied our needs and the area was perfect for what we wanted - easy access to beaches, biking paths, hiking trails and shopping.
Very relaxing vacation!!
It was a nice quiet vacation. We had a blast and loved the location of the cottage. Overall, everything was great!
Great place for two in Santa Rosa Beach!
Love this location.. to bike trails, restaurants, & convenient beach access. Our host, Bill was very helpful & accomodating! We would love to return!
A great getaway
If you are looking for seclusion and quiet away from the resort scene, this is it. A piece of old Florida yet a short bike or car ride to the beach.
If you cycle, the Timpochee Trail begins a stone’s throw from the cottage. You can take it into town and beyond: an 18 mile paved biking and walking trail.
Topsail Preserve offers an abundance of hiking and biking trails: some paved, some sandy.
And then there is one of the most scenic beaches in Northwest Florida.
Thank you, Bill, for your hospitality! It was a great stay!
The cottage is 1500 feet from the gulf and one of the most pristine beaches in Florida and on the eastern edge of the Topsail State Preserve with beautiful biking and walking paths
