Description

This charming two bedroom vacation cottage has a fantastic location in Santa Rosa Beach on Emerald Dunes Circle, just a short three and a half minute stroll from the sugary shoreline. However, you don't even have to go that far to take a delightful plunge since a large seasonally heated freshwater community pool with a spacious sun deck is just 20 yards away. This rental home is nestled away in a lovely residential neighborhood south of Scenic 30A on a quaint circle drive adorned with towering palms but is just minutes away from restaurants, friendly bars, and specialty shops.

Up to eight happy beach-going guests may reside at Key Lime Cottage since there is a king sized bed in the Master Suite, a queen bunk in the Guest bedroom and a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living area. Both the Master Bedroom and Guest Room include full private en-suite baths upstairs on the second floor while a half bath is available as a convenient powder room on the first-floor level.

A paver tiled drive that holds two cars is flanked by towering palm trees and faces this stately Old Florida styled residence. A spindle columned veranda spans the house downstairs while a matching covered balcony rises above it. The glass front entry leads into a sunny parchment tiled open living area that includes a plush blue couch and coco-colored armchair. This comfortable seating ensemble faces a white armoire which houses an entertainment system with a stereo along with a TV. This hospitable home also includes a TV in each bedroom. A rectangular country hardwood dining table with six navy spindle-backed cottage chairs is centered upon a bright bay window and sits beneath an elegant light fixture. The newly remodeled open kitchen nearby has a warm ambiance with white custom cabinetry, a richly tiled accent splash wall, stainless steel appliances, cream-colored granite countertops and a bar with three wooden stools where drinks or snacks may be easily served. It has everything you need to create a fun family meal on those evenings when you decide to dine in. A gas grill is located right outside the back door that is available for cookouts.

The spacious serene Master Bedroom with an en-suite bath also includes its own private balcony, a king sized bed with a colorful floral patterned spread, bed stands with table lamps, a large double closet and a flat screen TV. The Guest Bedroom has a brightly attired queen sized bunk bed with white framing, its own en-suite private bath, and access to a covered balcony.

This great South Walton location is within walking distance to a well established popular seafood restaurant called "Goatfeathers." They also have a market that sells freshly caught fish and shrimp from the gulf so you may be tempted to take some back to the cottage to have them grilled. Gulf Place is also just minutes away with several restaurants, a bistro, boutiques, galleries, seasonal festivals, and musical concerts.

First Floor: Living Room with Queen Sleeper Sofa, Kitchen, Dining Room, Powder Room, Laundry.

Second Floor: King Master Bedroom with Balcony Access and Full Bath, Queen Bunk Room with Balcony Access and Full Bath.

Based on the daily temperature and at the HOA's discretion, the community pool is typically heated during Thanksgiving and Spring Break.

A lot to love at Key Lime Cottage
Loved this cozy cottage tucked away in a lovely neighborhood within a leisurely stroll to the beach. Wonderfully comfortable beds and great response from Ocean Reef when contacted.

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

Does the Key Lime Cottage offer beach chairs and umbrellas for guest use?
Normita V - Posted: 03/17/2022

Answer:

Beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided complimentary, but are most certainly available. Once you have secured your reservation, we will provide you with the beach services contact information. You can reserve chairs and umbrellas over the phone, or directly on the sand. See you soon!

Is the beach access private for the community or open to the public?
Caitlin H - Posted: 07/22/2022

Answer:

Key Lime Cottage utilizes the public neighborhood beach access at the end of Gulfview Heights Street. The Gulfview Heights Regional Beach Access includes parking, restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and lifeguards on duty during peak times of the year. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Would you allow a 6 year old golden retreiver?
Kris C - Posted: 09/04/2022

Answer:

We love our dogs here at Ocean Reef, however - Key Lime Cottage is a non-pet-friendly home. If you are unable to board your pup, you may want to consider one of these Pet Friendly Rentals.

Are rental golf carts allowed in this neighborhood?
Emily Q - Posted: 05/10/2023

Answer:

Yes! In fact, you can rent a golf cart at a discounted rate through one of our preferred vendors! Golf carts are only permitted in speed limit zones of 35 MPH or less, and each golf cart rental will take the place of one vehicle parking space. Enjoy the ride!

Does this rental come with bikes?
Yuliya C - Posted: 02/26/2024

Answer:

Key Lime Cottage does not include complimentary bikes, but you can most certainly rent them! As an Ocean Reef guest, you have exclusive access to discounted bike rentals through our Reef Rewards program.
