Exactly like the listing
Posted on: 10/6/2020

We had a great time! We've stayed in this neighborhood before but we liked this house the best because of the master bedroom downstairs. The home was clean and had everything you need for a family vacation. We loved the two screen porches and the grilling area out back. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious. There are several beach access locations close but we like Gulf View Heights the best because it is the least congested. We'll be back! Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Perfect place to stay!
Posted on: 10/3/2020

This house was perfect for our family vacation. The set up of the house was excellent for sleeping as well as entrainment at night. We especially loved the screened in porches for hanging out in the evening. The kitchen layout was ideal for a large group. Everything you needed was provided. The neighborhood was centrally located and only a couple minute drive to the beach. The neighborhood pool was right across the street and was well maintained. The house was immaculately clean. I would reccomend and definetly will stay again next year.

Amazing Property
Posted on: 9/28/2020

This house is amazing. It is spacious and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything utensil you could think of and the decor is nice. The kids loved the home and I will definitely be booking this home again in the future. The bikes that came with the home is a nice plus and both screened in porches is also a major plus. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful.

Posted on: 7/30/2018

 Our family had a wonderful time staying at this house. Very clean, well taken care of and in the ideal location near the pool and just a short ride on the golf cart or bikes to the beautiful beach. Planning on coming back and would definitely stay here again.

2nd time staying even better than 1st
Posted on: 7/23/2018

 Love, love the Sanderling Cottage! Plenty of room and high end touches. The porches are really nice for hanging out, and convenient for storing beach bags and gear. We drove to the beach, loaded up the car up to stay all day the days we went, and found that worked well. Spent one day down at Grayton Beach State Park. Fantastic! Always felt good to come back to such a comforting home.

 This house was perfect for our family. It was beautifully decorated and had every amenity we could want. Lots of space for our family to spread out. Our daughters particularly loved having their own TV in the bedroom. :) The neighborhood pool is super close and BEAUTIFUL. A great place to relax during the day or night, with the lights and fire pit.

Perfect relaxation setting for body and mind!
Posted on: 8/28/2017

 I absolutely loved my stay at this cottage! First of all, Blue Mountain beach is truly stunning, and the rental was a mere mile walk to the beach, connected by a great path along 30A which you could walk, jog, or bike safely. Just an amazing way to start your day!

In the cottage, all rooms were extremely clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated, which contributed to the overall relaxation feeling. The unit felt brand new, and all finishes and appliances were so nicely selected. The owners definitely spent some time making sure this is a retreat they would love to spend time at themselves.

I really liked the layout of the unit, as it offers many options of where to spend time in the cottage, with a great comfortable screened-in front porch, and an additional back screened-in porch/patio. Living/dining and kitchen areas were spacious and well designed. You can absolutely keep your privacy, or join the group activities in this setting.

If you love to walk, besides the beach access itself, there are many amenities at the mile walking distance. If you don’t mind driving ten minutes, there are infinite options of great restaurants and shopping in the surrounding areas, as well as nature spots.

Even though I usually don’t spend too much time at the pool (especially with the beach right there), I could also appreciate the quality of their community pool facilities at this location.

I would absolutely return to Sanderling Cottage for another vacation. And next time, definitely for a longer stay!

The best home away from home property!
Posted on: 8/21/2017

 The home was exquisite. Beautiful decor that took your breath away when you walked through the front door. My family loved the close proximity to the pool. The beach was just a short bike ride away from the property. Thanks for the great vacation!

Beautiful Home & Beach Community!
Posted on: 7/10/2017

 This was our family's first visit to this beach area. We had a wonderful vacation in spite of Tropical Storm Cindy spoiling the last 2 days of our visit! The home is absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the upscale finishes, peaceful color palette, comfortable furnishings and artistic decor! The home was very clean and had a well appointed kitchen. The community was quiet and very well maintained. Our only recommendation would be an addition of a current 30A guidebook or guest notebook. This would have been a tremendous help since we had never been to this area. Previous VRBO homes we have rented have included a "notebook/guestbook" for visitors to recommend sight seeing and restaurants. We look forward to visiting this area in the future!

Accommodations were top notch.
Posted on: 7/3/2017

 Beautiful property with plenty of room for our family. The only issues we had were that somebody had changed the password to the wifi and neglected to inform management, and parking and congestion proved to be challenging with all the current construction

Natalie H.
Wonderful vacation home!
Posted on: 5/15/2017

 We are a family with young children and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is gorgeous and the location is great. If we come back to this area we would love to stay here again!

Very spacious and accomod for our family. Loved the pool area.
Posted on: 5/1/2017


Had a great time. There was a lot of construction going on which caused some noise. Everything was provided except for a few things that there wasn't enough of. I. E. Dishwashing liquid, trash bags and washing detergent. Other than that the trip was great. Needs some outdoor lighting by the grill.

Favourite place for winter sun
Posted on: 3/15/2017

 Ideal location for some winter sunshine away from our snow and ice in England in February. Excellently appointed property situated within a few minutes' drive of some superb beaches and great restaurants. This was our third visit and we will certainly come back again.

Beautiful home, wonderful location!
Posted on: 3/8/2017

 Sanderling Cottage is a modern, well-appointed, and comfortable home for the perfect beach getaway in any season. The open plan kitchen, dining, and living spaces are light and airy, with plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining. It is roomy, but cozy, and the bedroom/bath set-up will work well for many families or groups of friends. There are beautifully furnished outdoor spaces (screened in porch and a back terrace), and it's a short walk to a magnificent community pool with lots of amenities. The neighborhood is a great place to stroll on your way to those perfect Gulf beaches. Santa Rosa is in the heart of "30A" which is known for its wealth of superior restaurants and entertainment options. Once you've stayed, it will become your "go to" for visiting the Gulf coast.

A relaxing retreat
Posted on: 3/8/2017

We have stayed at Sanderling Cottage 3 times over the past two years. The large open kitchen-living area is great for family activities and the two screened in porches provide additional space to stretch out. The bedrooms and baths are separate and private. The cottage is close to the pool, a state park, and of course the magnificent beach and ocean. We can't wait to use the new patio and grill on our next visit!

My favorite place!
Posted on: 2/28/2017

 I have stayed several times at the Sanderling Cottage and just love it. Beautifully appointed, close to the pool (but not too close to be loud), and is a quick drive or easy bike ride to the beach. The pool is fabulous and huge, on top of the hill, it catches a lovely breeze where everywhere else can be hotter than hell's hinges. the fire pit in the evening is a wonderful place for a glass of wine to watch the sun go down. An upstairs and downstairs master bedroom make house sharing easy and there is room for kids. Two porches make the outside part of the extensive living area. I have already made plans to be back this spring!
