As Good as it Gets-a Perfect '10' Cottage Very Close 2 Beach


Home Description

'As Good As It Gets' - A perfect '10' cottage only 4 years old with front covered porch, rear screened porch, and a lushly landscaped yard with a picket fence.

A VERY short walk to Frangista beach (4 minutes and your toes are in the famous Emerald Waters) with the neighborhood pool directly behind home. You can sit on screened porch and watch the kids swim at the uncrowded luxurious large pool. This charming cottage has 11 ft ceilings and all hardwood floors. The owner is an interior designer and has left nothing unattended - you will be pleasantly surprised by the tasteful vintage decor. Colors are soft and relaxing and no detail has been overlooked including high quality bedding. You will be charmed by the iron beds, cotton quilts and vintage linen fabrics. There is a large LCD TV with surround sound in the gathering room and 2 flat screens in bedrooms as well as DVD on each. There is a queen bed in each of the bedrooms. There is also a queen sleeper sofa and a queen air mattress with integrated air inflation. Dream of sleeping under the stars? Then the daybed on the screened porch is for you and is a favorite napping spot!

You will feel as if you are staying at a Five Star Luxury Bed and Breakfast. The master suite, named La Jardin Suite (the garden suite) has soft pistachio green walls, hydrangea wreath, garden statuary, wrought iron accents, yellow toile cotton quilts and beautiful accessories. It is refreshing and relaxing and perfect in every detail. The smaller suite, named La Petite Suite, is decorated with a Country French cotton quilt and bedding, black iron bed and black distressed furnishings. Beautiful original oils and limited edition prints complete the pleasing ambience of this room.


The kitchen is fully equipped so if you prefer to donning your apron instead of waiting in line at a restaurant, everything you need is there including stainless appliances, a new Bosch side by side fridge with ice and water in the door and and new stainless ceramic top range.

The gathering room is something out of a magazine with it's slip covered furniture, original oils and vintage touches. The large oval table in a distressed red finish will seat six.

The walk to the beach is about 200 yards (very very short). Your toes will touch the beautiful white sands of the Gulf in minutes. You cross Scenic 98 which is not busy. It also has speed bumps all along the road and at the private beach access. Although we have wireless internet access, you can also walk to the corner to 'Bad Ass Coffee' for internet access and a great cup of java. If you are not familiar with Scenic 98 location, it departs from hwy 98 at the Destin Commons Mall and comes back into 98 at Silver Sands Outlet Mall (shopping mecas). This is the road where Pompano Joes and Destiny By The Sea is located. The beaches are uncrowded due the abscense of high rise condos in the area.

We are confident if you stay once, you will return, making 'As Good As It Gets' your Florida beach tradition.

The cottage was lovely and spotlessly clean! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back and stay here again. All our needs were met immediately and the owner was a delight! It is definitely "as good as it gets!"

Wonderful and Warm Abode!

My boyfriend and I had an incredible week staying in this house. It is so beautiful! It had everything that we needed and wanted. The pictures of the kitchen are a little misleading, in a good way ;) The kitchen is a lot bigger than the pictures show, which we loved! The location of it was amazing. Just a short walk to the beach! Everything was clean and taken care of! Barbara was impeccable with her response back when we had a question. We hope to be back!
