Pup Friendly Cottage South of 30A! 2BR 2.5BR

                                              NOPE, NO 2024 RATE UPTICK AT MELLOW YELLOW! COME STAY AND BRING THE PUP!

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6).

This cozy, whimsical, DOG FRIENDLY, island style cottage is located in the enormously popular, small beach side community of Old Florida Cottages on the south side of Scenic Hwy 30A. There are no roads to cross going to the beach...which is only 200 yards away .Or simply step out the back door and walk TEN easy steps to the newly renovated pool and picnic area.

This tropical home is perfect for a small family or two couples. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with private bath and balcony. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed with private bath and balcony. Both have flat screen cable TVs. For your convenience, each bath has a hair dryer. (Both beds have quality firm, pillow top mattresses for extra sleeping comfort.) Upstairs balconies have deep hammocks that invite you to nap daily. And, acclaimed juried artist, Tim McAllister, has created - just for Mellow Yellow - an awesome Dolphin underwater viewing mural on the upstairs landing that will captivate you and bring you a sense of calm and peace. His art can also be found in other areas of the house and his efforts have truly contributed to the uniqueness of this fun, wonderfully comfortable, home. Children love Mellow Yellow!

The first floor has an open plan with front and back porches. The living room - which has art/decor reflecting the feel of a rain forest - has a queen sleeper sofa and a flat screen 55" color/smart TV. Netflix. The dining room has an oval table that will comfortably seat six. Four adjacent bar stools allow you further seating. The fully equipped kitchen makes meal prep a breeze. Whip up a batch of margaritas in the blender to sip while watching the sunset. Or, how about a 'cheeseburger in paradise' concocted on your own grill just off the back porch? WiFi available.

Within walking distance are some great eateries, and delightful shopping, at Gulf Place. Scenic 30-A boasts wonderful restaurants, many of which have been written up - and rated well up there! - in Bon Appetite and other food periodicals. And Goat Feathers, just steps away, has a seafood market on site. Nearby you'll visit Silver Sands, the largest outlet mall in the States, Sandestin - with its great golf, boutique shopping, and even more fine restaurants - Santa Rosa Beach and Golf Club located right on 30-A, Grayton Beach, Water Color, Rosemary beach, Alys Beach, and world renowned Seaside, where the Truman Story was filmed.

Experience beautiful beaches with sugar white sand that stays cool on the hottest day. I'm a panhandle native, lived and cruised on a 60' sailboat for well over a decade (many years in the islands) and I still dearly love this beach - with a passion! The stroll to get there is easy for even small children. Pool is normally heated for spring break, starting in March. Please contact us for specific dates as they can change from year to year.

Help us welcome our new sister property, 30APaws! A classic FL bungalow, it's located close to Mellow Yellow, is a 3/2 with a fenced back yard for the dogg-os and there's parking for more than two vehicles (a plus on 30A). We're already having guests move from one place to the the other 

Thanks for stopping by and, certainly, for your consideration!

Cheers and Woofs!

Pat and Crew

Perfect location. Attentive owner.    Mar 10, 2019

Mellow Yellow was exactly as promised. Loved the decor. We and our dog felt right at home. Clean. Comfortable. The owner called the first day to be sure everything was good for us. She had gotten a new couch and even added a new Netflix/Amazon accessible TV just before we arrived. When the tv needed to be re-adjusted by the media company, the owner was immediately responsive and got it taken care of.

And the location was perfect- close to the beach, walking trails, and restaurants.

Great location - near the beach and restaurants    Sep 01, 2018

Aside from tropical storm Gordon dropping a lot of rain, we loved our stay at Mellow Yellow. It’s in a great location and has all the amenities. Thank you so much for sharing your home. We would definitely return.

Clean, cozy, close to the beach!    Jul 28, 2018

We loved our stay at Mellow Yellow. We have always rented homes through VRBO and this was the first time an owner, Pat, called to make sure we arrived safely and to confirm everything was in order! The home is very clean. I loved getting up before everyone else and taking the short walk to the beach in the early mornings. We did not cook much but the kitchen was spotless and had everything you could need. My favorite part of Mellow Yellow were the bedrooms. The bright walls and beautiful quilts made both bedrooms so comfy and cozy. We would stay at Mellow Yellow again!

We enjoyed our time at Mellow Yellow. It was as described. Fun and comfortable. Great neighborhood, great location and close to pool and beach. And our dog loved it too! Pat was easy to work with on anything. We would definitely recommend Mellow Yellow. Thank you for sharing your home.

Wonderful stay at Mellow Yellow in Santa Rosa!    Mar 01, 2018

review star

We loved our stay at Mellow Yellow and Santa Rosa Beach. This was our first time renting from HomeAway and our first visit to the beautiful beaches on 30a (South Walton.) Mellow Yellow was a cute house in the charming Old Florida Village neighborhood, steps away from the beautiful beach. The house was clean and well equipped for a perfect beach vacation. We enjoyed morning walks and the sunsets on the beach. It was also a perfect location for riding bikes along the 30a bike path towards lovely Seaside and beyond. We were also able to walk to many restaurants. We especially found the people in South Walton to be so sweet and welcoming. Most importantly, our little pup was very comfortable and felt very welcome in the community. Pat, the owner, was so easy and great to deal with. She responded so promptly to any questions or concerns, and really treated us like old friends rather than renters. The property manager was also very responsive and attentive.

After discovering the beaches of South Walton, we would love to come back and look forward to renting from Pat and staying in Mellow Yellow in the future.

Great pet friendly vacation home.    May 15, 2017

Good location, well stocked, clean & Pat is WONDERFUL to work with. She responded IMEDIATELY to any concerns we had. I loved the hammocks & dolphin mural. Our furry child, miss Sophie, felt right at home in Mellow Yellow. Pat went above and beyond to make our stay very enjoyable. Will definitely rent from Pat in the future.
