vacation rental description

Lazy Lizards

This sophisticated beach retreat is tastefully decorated and ideally situated in Old Florida Village. You will be enchanted by the lush landscaping, swaying palm trees and white picket fences of OFV...our home is next to one of two parks in the community, just steps away from the largest of two pools and a short stroll to the sugar white beaches of Santa Rosa Beach on Florida's Emerald Coast, where easy beach access is often uncrowded. Your pets will love the fenced in yard... and you will love morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and cool coastal breezes on any of our 4 porches. 

Lazy Lizards is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, three story cottage that comfortably sleeps ten. 

It features an open floor plan ideal for entertaining and spending time with family and friends. The First floor includes an open kitchen/living/dining room with a deck for outdoor relaxing and a gorgeous lake view, a full bath with shower, as well as a Queen bedroom with flat screen TV and its own private balcony.

traveler reviews for this santa rosa beach house rental

The Lazy Lizard is the best!!!

Review submitted: August 20, 2014   Date of arrival: August 12, 2014

Our family searched a long time to find a place to stay on the Florida coast and we found the best place to stay!!! The Lazy Lizard was a lovely home in a great location! It was so quiet and relaxing that we did not want to leave. Everyone was so nice including the owner. We loved the pools, the greenbelt and pond behind the house, and the secluded feel to the Old Florida Village. We could drive one way on 30a and get to beautiful Seaside or drive the other way and get to Destin. The beach was walking distance away as well as a lovely shopping village. The area was very clean and classy. We loved our vacation to the Lazy Lizard and cannot wait to go back!!!

Wonderful vacation! Highly recommend.

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: August 6, 2014

My husband, daughter, and adult friends all stayed at the Lazy Lizard and had a great time. The house was beautifully decorated and walking distance to the pool. We did drive to the beach (1 mile or so), but never had a problem parking. The house had everything we needed and I loved how the three bedroom (not counting the tower room) had their own bathrooms. I would highly recommend. Diane was a dream to work with. Nothing negative to say about our stay or our experience.

Great Family Vacation!

Review submitted: July 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

I can only echo what others have said. This is a great house with a nicely equipped kitchen & outdoor grill, comfortable bedrooms and nice extras (like plenty of beach towels and 4 TVs). The back porch and back yard provide a peaceful backdrop and Diane has been great to deal with!

Our 3 generation family trip was our first time in the Santa Rosa Beach area and we loved it. Being able to stay at Lazy Lizards made the entire experience even better!
