This gracious, hospitable Santa Rosa Beach vacation rental home encompasses three bedrooms as well as a bunk nook and comfortably accommodates up to ten happy beach-going guests. It has a fantastic location tucked away on the gulf side of South Walton's Scenic 30A in the exclusive gated residential community of Old Florida Beach. It is in a wonderful world of its own but less than a handful of minutes away from popular restaurants, friendly bars, and specialty shops nearby. This charming enclave is near the shimmering sugar white shore and a large community pool that's available for a freshwater plunge. Besides the beautiful beach, you can stroll over to Draper Lake to experience sensational scenery. This precious coastal dune lake is a real treasure since they are found hardly anywhere else on the globe. An estuary connects directly to the gorgeous gulf and creates a magical mix of water as it flows both ways with the tides. It supports abundant wildlife so you may try your luck at fishing there!

We enjoyed our stay at Morrow Cottage. The house was very clean and well equipped. The living room furniture was so comfy and so were the beds. Great use of space for the tower bedroom and the bunk nook in the hall. Loved the upstairs porch and the walkway behind the house to the pool was great. Very quiet neighborhood as well. As a note.. if you have people in your group with mobility issues, know that there are a great number of steps to get to the beach in this area. The walk is short but the steps are many! We would definitely rent Morrow cottage again.
