Great vacation with the family!
The accommodations were great. The house felt like a home during the week we were there. Great location, cute neighborhood and minutes from the beach. Having beach chairs in the shed for our use was a little perk that helped us out! Saved space in our car! Kitchen was well equipped and made eating at home a few nights easier. We really had a relaxed, great time. Can't wait to plan next summer.
Beautiful home - even better than the pictures . Great girls weekend ! Take your bikes- we never used the car while we were there .
Great Beach House
This was our second trip to Old Florida Village and our first stay at "Fancy Free"! We loved it here! The location is great with the close proximity to the pools worked out very well for all of us. We have stayed in this complex before and enjoyed the easy access to the beach beside Goatfeathers. The accommodations were very homey and had everything we needed to make our family beach vacation complete. The owner is so easy to work with and responds timely. We would highly recommend this beach house for families or couples. We found the house clean and tidy and would like to return someday. Thank you for a wonderful time in Santa Rosa Beach!
Footloose and Fancy Free for sure!!!!
I found this gem while doing a Vrbo search for a quick trip to Fl. I needed a house that was big enough for three adults and two children. From the very beginning, the owner responded to my emails and made booking a breeze. From the moment we arrived in the neighborhood, we could tell that this was a great place for families! The houses are set back far enough from 30a so that the kids can ride bikes safely. The house itself was spotless and well appointed. The kitchen was so well stocked that we needed up staying in and cooking each night. The kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds and the adults slept well in the large, cozy beds. The house is within walking distance to several restaurants and shops. We will definitely book a trip back to this house next year!!!
Can't imagine a better HQ for a week at the beach
This cottage is as lovely as it looks in the pictures. It felt recently updated, was very clean, and came with all kinds of thoughtful little extras (beach toys, beach chairs, a nice stack of family friendly movies and games and a well-stocked kitchen). The owner is friendly, conscientious and very helpful. Old Florida Village is a beautiful, quiet, well-managed neighborhood that's close to a great seafood market and lots of restaurants and shops. Relaxing on nearby, public-access, life-guarded Santa Rosa Beach, I talked to several fellow beachgoers who said that this was the least crowded and best maintained beach they had found in all of South Walton.
Loved the Santa Rosa Beach area. Owners description of her property and surroundings were very accurate. Easy walk to the beach, clean townhouse, great decor. Definitely will rent from Susan again. Thanks!!
