About the Owner

I am a retired Air force Officer and have traveled the world and most of our 50 states. I discovered this area when I was stationed in the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing at Eglin Air Force base in the middle 70's. I loved the area , the weather and particularly the beaches and kept coming back after I retired from the Air Force. I purchased the property during my second career with Verizon Wireless while I was living in Nashville. It was one of my better decisions in life and I built the Little Cottage and began renting it a few years later.. I ride my bike on 30A . go to the beach and play golf at one of the ten courses within ten miles.

We had a great time at this cottage for our birthday weekend. Bill is such a great host and very helpful with all the restaurant suggestions. We biked on 30A to Dunes Allen Beach and it was amazing! The hot jacuzzi was a plus especially on cold nights. Overall it was a fantastic stay. Wish we could stay longer! Thank you Bill!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review of the little cottage . I take pride in providing my guests a special vacation and it makes me happy to receive these reviews telling me how much they enjoyed the cottage. the beaches and the area. I recently added a new stainless gas grille, a new hammock from LL Bean and a super hot tub in order to provide guests the best experience possible.

We loved The Little Cottage from the first to the last second we were there. We will be back. Spotlessly clean, more towels than 4 families could use.
Bill was so helpful with recommendations. Everything was as promised. Would highly recommend this to couples of any age. The pool was pristine and immaculate. The hammock was perfect. Even found reading material for the beach. We have never been as pleased with a beach house and will tell all of our friends. So much value for the dollar.
Loved Bill's adorable dog.
Thanks again for a must excellent vacation. Herb and Donna

We arrived about 1:30pm, and the house was not ready as it had not been cleaned. We were told it's usually ready at that time, but the housekeeper was late. We left to get supplies to return at 3:00pm and were assured it would be ready. Returned at 3:00, and it still wasn't ready...housekeeper was still cleaning. We waited in the car, and she finally came out and said we could come inside and put our groceries in the fridge, and she would work around us.
Disappointment continued:
Hot tub was empty and not available
Hammock was filthy with bird droppings and mildew
Grill was rusty and dirty...had obviously not been cleaned in a long time
Only two bath towels
One of only two hand towels was stained
Walking to the beach was not an option...way too far...very disappointing
Bed has an indentation on each side...very uncomfortable
Fridge handle needed cleaning

The house could be very nice with some TLC and maintenance. Will not return and would not recommend.

Owner's Response: Check in time is at 3:00PM which is early for most places. however I know guests are anxious to start their vacation and get a little beach time in the first day so I do everything i can to accomodate early check in. Unfortunately on July 23rd the height of the season the cleaners are extremely busy and that was not possible. The hot tub was popping the circuit breakers after ten years of faithful service so we decided to empty it and buy a new one which is on order. I have been watching the hammock closely and admit it was hard to keep clean this summer with all the rain. I am ordering a new one today. There is a closet full of towels upstairs most guests find it I tell guests if there having a problem with something please tell me I will fix it! This is the first complaint I have had on the bed that is very important to me as I know you need a good night sleep to enjoy your vacation. Two weeks ago I received an email from previous guests who wanted to know where I purchased the cover for the bed because they like it so much they wanted one just like it. I think things got off on the wrong foot when the guests arrive early and could not get into the cottage. I will do everything I can to see that it doesn't happen again. I value my customers opinions hope they tell me at the time when they have a problem I will address it. Bill

My wife and I just spent an outstanding week at the Little Cottage. Everything was better than expected. The week was filled with bike riding, beach walking, relaxing, and eating seafood! Thanks Bill for all the suggestions. We have fallen in love with the area and will be back!!!
