“As Good As It Gets' - A perfect '10' cottage is now even better as Spring 2020 remodel includes a new high end luxury kitchen and new master bathroom. Everything is freshly painted and beautiful new driftwood tile floors. This is a luxury stay! The property features a front covered porch, rear screened porch, and a lushly landscaped yard with a picket fence with lavish pool right out back. Very clean! Beach service (Chairs and umbrella) for 2 included!
A VERY short walk to private uncrowded Frangista beach (4 minutes and your toes are in the famous Emerald Waters) with the uncrowded neighborhood pool directly behind home. You can sit on screened porch and watch the kids swim in the luxurious large pool. This charming cottage has 11 ft ceilings and all driftwood tile floors (no carpet). The owner is an interior/kitchen and bath 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 3 flat screens in bedrooms as well as DVD in living room. There is a luxury king bed in the master (guests rave), a king in bedroom 2 and queen in the other bedroom. There is also a queen sleeper sofa (new in 2019) and a queen air mattress with integrated air inflation.
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, and beautiful art and accessories. It is refreshing and relaxing and perfect in every detail. The secondary 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 LG induction range, a new Bosch dishwasher, Bosch side by side fridge with ice and water in the door and and refrigerated filtered water at the sink.
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 3-4 plus 5 at the kitchen island.
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 absence 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.
