Whether you're looking for a secluded, romantic retreat, or a great little beach getaway for a new family, "Southern Cross" is the place for you!  A true cottage, this is high-end tiny-home living at it's best! 

Less than a half-mile from the beautiful white-sand beaches of the Emerald Coast, a short bike ride gets your day started (2 bikes are included with your reservation).  Enjoy the neighborhood's plentiful coastal breezes, and wave hello to neighbors and friends making their way to the beach.  Bask in the sun, while gazing out to the clear and calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico - At the end of the day, relax in Adirondack chairs and toast marshmallows by the fire, or ride the bike path along 30A to check out all the area has to offer!

***Please Note: You must be at least 25 years of age to book this property. College-age spring break groups are not permitted, regardless of chaperone.***

You'll find plentiful outdoor space upon arriving at Satinwood Cottage, including a firepit, bike racks, nearby hiking access, and miles of surrounding state forest.  The open front porch gives off a southern vibe, encouraging conversation and relaxing, idle time. 

Walking inside, tasteful coastal decor gives the cottage a light and bright feel, making the best use of a smaller overall space.  The kitchen-living-dining space are combined and offers all the comforts of home, on a tiny-home scale.  In the kitchen area, you'll find a refrigerator/freezer, range, oven, sink, and cabinets stocked with all the utensils and cookware you'll need to enjoy family meals.  Adjacent to the kitchen, you'll find a dining table for two. 

The living room space features a queen sofa sleeper with lounger-ottoman, and includes a flat-screen wall-mounted TV for enjoying your favorite shows.  Wifi is of course also provided for your convenience.

Moving down the hall past the kitchen area, you'll find a full bathroom with tub-shower combo.  The bathroom has a nice amount of space and comfort, so it's easy to get ready for the beach, or for heading out to any of the amazing nearby restaurants for some fresh seafood!

The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, a view out to the forest, and a built in closet/dresser!

The beach is just a short drive or easy bike ride away from your front steps (walk-able as well, if you're looking for some extra exercise).  Less than a half-mile door-to-door, you'll find the public beach access with plentiful parking, rest rooms and lifeguards on duty in peak season.  On your way to the beach you'll pass the famous Goatfeathers seafood restaurant, Buddy's Ice Cream Shop, and the 30A bike path. 

Just a short ride west on the bike path brings you to the Growler Garage beer garden and Pecan Jack's gourmet ice cream.  After that, you'll arrive at Gulf Place, where you'll find Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar, La Playa Mexican Restaurant, Pizza By the Sea, Sunrise Coffee, the Yolo Board Shop, and much, much more!

If you're looking for a cozy cottage near the beaches and fun of 30A, "Southern Cross" offers the fun, relaxation, comfort, and natural surroundings you're looking for!

This was a perfect cottage near the beach for a quiet and private get away. Don’t miss out on the hiking trail a half a block away!!

Can't Wait to Come Back!

Date of Stay:

This spot was perfect for me and my friend to get away for the weekend! We used the fire pit & the bikes made it super convenient to get to the beach. We left feeling rejuvenated. The hosts were also highly communicative and made us feel comfortable. We can’t wait to come back! 5 stars!

Very Cute - a Favorite!

Date of Stay:

Very cute, cozy, beachy tiny home perfect for two people. The house is set back off the road for privacy and the fire pit area adds a nice outdoor space. Location is close to everything w bikes or a gulf cart. Kim and Andy were always kind and responsive to my messages before and during the trip. My boyfriend and I are already planning our next trip to the area and are keeping this one on our favorites!

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate our one year anniversary and enjoyed relaxing in the cottage, warming up by the fire pit and riding through town with the bikes. Can’t wait to come back!

Absolutely Recommend!

Date of Stay:

As my partner put it, this home was no more and no less than what we wanted. It was the perfect size for two people, the perfect location, the perfect atmosphere. We wouldn’t change a thing about this home! The walk to the beach was easy and the road you cross has a crosswalk for safety. You are so close to so many great local restaurants and shops! The beaches weren’t too crowded either. The home is isolated enough from the bustle of the beach town so you don’t feel trapped in the party of it all. Would absolutely recommend this stay!

Everything was great!

Date of Stay:

Everything was great with our stay. We had a small issue with the internet but they fixed it pretty quickly. Otherwise, the bikes were great to use to get to the beach easily and there are bike trails right near the house if you get bored. The beach was nice and the house was quiet and private.

Fantasic - Very Clean!

Date of Stay:

We had a great week! The Air BNB was a fantastic getaway to a place that we were able to relax, rest and socially distance at the beach during the covid-19 pandemic. The place was very clean, well stocked with extras such as Roku capability, nice beach chairs and bikes; we had no issues there - definitely able to socially distance at the local beach as well. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway spot during the pandemic!

Thoroughly Enjoyed!

Perfect in Every Way!

Our little cottage was perfect in every way, and made our stay all the more enjoyable. We would HIGHLY recommend to anyone. Cute, cozy, charming and close to the beach! Also close to the Town Center, and Goatfeathers is just right up the road from the beach access — we took fresh cooked shrimp right down to the beach with us for lunch! Very clean, very nicely decorated, lots of towels AND the washer/dryer is a big plus. All in all, EXCEPTIONAL STAY!

Perfect for a Small Family!

Exactly as described. Perfect size for a small family. Includes a washer and drier which was a surprising and helpful addition to our stay.

The Perfect Place!

Date of Stay:

Southern Cross was the perfect place for my husband and I! We enjoyed making s’mores and drinking wine by the fire at night! Great place that’s close to everything! We rode bikes to our favorite breakfast place one morning and it has easy access to the beach. We loved the privacy it offered being off the road a bit. It’s a wonderful place and we highly recommend it! Kim and Andy quickly responded to everything and are great hosts!

Very Clean and Comfortable!

Date of Stay:

Cute cottage for a beach vacation! It was very clean and comfortable. About a 10/15 min walk to the beach with restaurants and ice cream shops close by.

Lovely, Charming & Welcoming - Great Home!

Lovely, charming, warm, and welcoming space with plenty of room to relax. Walking distance to the beach was perfect. The pullout couch and bed were both comfortable and we appreciated all the hospitable, charming, and special touches. And walking distance to the trails was an added bonus! Nice finishes and hospitable touches. Great home :)
