Little Gray Cottage, Huge Private Pool/Spa, 4 Bikes to use

Just off of famous county highway 30-A, in the quiet residential community of Seacrest, lies this professionally decorated, 1 story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath beach cottage. You are just steps from the sugar white sand that the beaches of South Walton County are known for. The beach access is literally at the end of the street and is less than a 5 minute stroll. Or just step out your back door to the beautiful, large private heated pool and huge 6 person spa/hot tub with travertine pool deck exclusively for use by you and your guests. No really. The pool and spa/hot tub are just for use by Little Gray Cottage guests only. Dine at one of two outdoor dining tables by the pool or on the deck.This 1 story beach cottage home, 'Little Gray Cottage', is full of top end upgrades such as stone countertops, stainless kitchen appliances, top quality fixtures, and crown molding. Original artwork by a popular local watercolorist is featured throughout the house. All bedrooms feature luxury hotel quality mattresses.

The beach cottage home lies on a quiet dead-end street in the residential Seacrest community. The property backs up to a heavily wooded section of exclusive, private Camp Creek golf course. The home has a huge deck complete with outdoor shower, gas grill with professional searing burner, and a dining area.

Inside, the home has a newly renovated fully stocked kitchen equipped with a gas stove and oven, microwave, french door stainless refrigerator, dishwasher and instant hot water dispenser. Other appliances include a coffee maker and toaster.

The home features painted wood floors, and stacked full size front load washer and gas dryer. The master bedroom includes a Hilton Hotel queen size mattress and bed with ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has a custom glass mosaic tile wall and a carrera marble double sink vanity. The second bathroom also features a carrera marble double sink vanity and a shower/tub combination.

The second bedroom features two twin XL beds to handle everyone from kids to adults comfortably.

The home is conveniently located just 1 1/4 miles from Alys Beach and 2 miles to Rosemary Beach. Take a short pre-breakfast bike ride or stroll to Charlie's donut truck in Alys Beach for some great donuts, pastries and coffee. It is only 6 1/2 miles to Seaside, and 15 minutes to a great shopping and entertainment experience at Pier Park or less than 30 minutes to Silver Sands Outlet mall. Panama City Beach is only 30 minutes and Destin 40 minutes away.

But you'll probably spend most of your time staying close to home. Stroll down to the beach or use your 4 free bikes to cruise the 19 mile Tampoochee Trail to visit the many unique neighborhoods along scenic county road 30-A. Or, even better, spend time in the backyard playing Cornhole or lounging in the pool and spa.

If you are spending time inside, enjoy the high definition TVs with high definition cable service and included NetFlix streaming movies.

And whether you are inside or outside, enjoy the Sonos sound system with Rhapsody streaming music service and play any of 32 million songs.

Another Fabulous Stay    Sep 14, 2019

This was our second time staying in the Little Gray Cottage and we found it to be just as wonderful as the time we stayed in 2017. If you are looking for clean and well appointed, this is the place! The pool and surrounding area are so amazing and so private! There is a wonderful sound system, the pool water features and hot tub work by remote control , you get four bikes, there is a corn hole game, I could go on and on! Rick and Trudy thought of everything and its all top notch and plus they are the nicest people. We look forward to the next time we stay, we know we won't be disappointed!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

They say you can’t go back but Rick and I do all we can to prove that saying wrong! I’m glad you enjoyed the property as much as you did the last time. As you know, it is very important to us that everyone has a wonderful vacation. We take it personally. We all work too hard for that precious time off to waste it on something less than awesome! We look forward to see you again, Rick and Trudy

Perfect Getaway Cottage!!    Dec 28, 2018

What can be said about this fabulous place that the other reviewers haven't said! LGC is absolutely perfect! My daughter who lives in another state quite a distance from me & I stayed here & it was perfect. The cottage has everything you will need & then some. Unfortunately, the weather while we were there for 3 days didn't allow us to use the amazing outside of this beautiful cottage, but the deck, pool , hot tub & gorgeous private surroundings were so peaceful. We wanted to ride the bikes as well, but the weather just wouldn't give us the chance. The owners, Trudy & Rick thought of everything & there was a Welcome sign & flowers upon arrival, the entire home is supplied with nothing but the best of everything from everything in the kitchen, to the towels, to the TV & sound system, etc. I know that we will return & next time bring along the warmer weather & definitely the SUNSHINE! Cannot wait to share this with others in my family as well. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us Trudy & Rick!!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

Rick and I are thrilled that you and your daughter enjoyed our Little Gray Cottage! Mother/daughter time is precious so I'm glad that, while the weather did not cooperate, LGC served as a backdrop for that special time you got to spend together. Please DO come back to us again. We will make sure we put in an advance order with Mother Nature for sunny skies, warm temps, and emerald waters. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for us. It was a pleasure hosting you and your lovely daughter! Best, Rick and Trudy

Best placed we’ve stayed in the 30A area!    Sep 05, 2017

We love LGC! Upon arrival we were meet by Trudy and Rick. There was a cute ‘welcome’ on the chalk board to our family and fresh cut flowers that lasted our entire stay. Great little touches! They walked us through the property and showed us all the amenities and how to operate them, and this property has a lot of great amenities! This vacation rental has everything for a relaxing and/or active vacation! The cottage is bright and perfectly set up for two couples or a family with children. The pictures do not give it justice! This kitchen was supplied with everything you need to cook up something simple or elaborate. It was stocked with very nice cookware, flatware and dinnerware as well as nice appliances. And all the little extras you may forget, from simple condiments to plastic wrap, extra trash bags etc. Stuff you think you don’t need until you are looking for it! This cottage was not supplied with old or cheap stuff you often find in vacation rentals. There was plenty of room indoors and out to enjoy our meals; the indoor table is ingeniously fit into the kitchen. The bedrooms have comfy beds and the baths were well appointed. A lot of little extras with plenty of bath towels including beach towels! The men in the family loved the entertainment system that supplied us with great music in the pool area as well. It included Netflix, Hulu and Amazon for viewing movies in the evenings! The outdoor area rivals large resorts! On the upper deck you’ll find a nice grill, table and chairs. At the pool level there is a beautiful covered area (with ceiling fans too!) another table for dining and a comfortable couch and chairs for setting back to relax in the shade. There are chaise lounges and chairs on the pool deck for sunning. The large pool had floats included and a hot tub for relaxing when the sun went down. The pool has nice extras of a sun pad with fountains and waterfall on the opposite side of the pool all adding to an ‘upgraded’ vacation rental. There are four adult bikes included which we used to bike to Rosemary Beach and the surrounding trails. The short walk to the beach was a breeze with chairs and umbrella set up daily. The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all! This cottage is a hidden gem, very well appointed, clean and large private pool! We will definitely be back again!! We’ve been vacationing in the Destin/30A area for over 20 years and this is probably one of the nicest places we've stayed! Thanks Trudy & Rick!!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

One of our goals when we started renting LGC was to provide our guests with a unique vacation experience. We want you to feel special and know that everything we did and continue to do to make your vacation memorable is done with a great deal of thought are care. We love our home and enjoy sharing it with others. Vacation time is precious. We all work hard for those few weeks a year dedicated to R&R. We deserve something special. Thank you for writing such a fabulous, all inclusive review. It does our hearts good to know we met the mark on making your precious vacation time special. We are honored to hear that LGC was one of your best vacation experiences of all time. We know your family has been coming to the 30-A area for many many years. You made our day! It was a pleasure meeting you, your sister, and the guys. Please do come back to see us. We would love for LGC to be an annual destination for you! Best, Rick and Trudy

Your own private resort!!!    Jun 02, 2017

We absolutely loved the Little Gray Cottage! This was our 3rd time vacationing on 30A and it was definitely our favorite. The interior of the home was beautiful and had everything you need for a relaxing vacation (including robes). Rick and Trudy are wonderful owners and answer all questions very quickly. We loved the Sonos music system that allows you to stream music from Amazon Prime, Pandora, etc. to both the pool area and inside the home independently. You can also connect an iPhone, etc., if you have an auxiliary audio cable. The 4 bikes were great and our oldest daughters loved riding a mile or two east on 30A for coffee every day. The short walk to the beach is great and the 2 beach chairs and umbrella were setup near the bottom of the beach access stairs in a great location. However, our favorite part of the Little Gray Cottage was the amazing outdoor area. The pool is very large and the hot tub was fantastic. The pavilion is a nice area to relax or eat dinner. We spent the majority of our time at the pool and probably enjoyed it more than the beach. Thank you Rick and Trudy for a very relaxing vacation. We'll definitely be back!

Trudy Davidson's reply:

Oh my. When Rick and I set up LGC as a family vacation destination we had a goal in mind as what type of experience we wanted our families to have when they stay with us. Your beautiful review captured it all! We are so glad that your family was able to enjoy a wonderful vacation together. Thank you so very much for taking the time post a review (and a great one at that). Best of luck to you in all of your plans for the next year. We would love to have you back after things settle down for you guys! Cheers, Rick and Trudy

Perfect location, perfect pool, and perfect vacation!    Nov 21, 2016

The Little Gray Cottage seemed to have everything we could have wanted. We were so happy to have bikes waiting for us. The pool is amazing! There are houses right next door but honestly you have complete privacy.

Trudy Davidson's reply:

We're so happy that your family had a great holiday experience with us! It really is a great area to explore on the bikes. I'm glad we could have them available for you. Yes, we have landscaped in such a way to afford our guests maximum privacy. The pool area and pavilion are a great place to hang out and relax. Thanks again for staying with us. Please come back to see us again! Take care, Rick and Trudy

Mom & daughter trip to celebrate 75th bday    Oct 12, 2016

I've been to 30A a dozen times and this, by far, was my favorite stay. The private pool + beach chair set-up was the perfect combo. We also loved the sound system, large screen TV to watch our college football and free bikes. What the home lacks in curb appeal compared to some of it's newer neighbors, it makes up for in amenities and comfort.

Trudy Davidson's reply:

We are so happy that you chose to celebrate the big 75th birthday with us and for your kind words! As a native 30-A vacationer, you know first hand that there are a lot of vacation properties out there to choose from so to be showered with such high praise by a veteran 30-A vacationer, we are honored. We do have a crop of fancy houses on our street but I'm confident that our backyard oasis stands up to just about any other backyard on the street. Thanks for taking the time to post a review for us. We really appreciate it and I sure hope to see your name again for another vacation at our Little Gray Cottage! Best, Rick and Trudy

Absolutely LOVE the LGC!!    Jun 03, 2016

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the LGC, and we throughouly enjoyed our stay there. It is such a wonderful place, and we plan to return in the future. We loved that it was such a short walk to the beach, and the fact that it boasts an amazing pool and spa! The shopping and restaurants in the area are fantastic as well, and the LGC is located in the perfect spot between all of the main attractions of the area! The LGC was extremely clean, spacious, and felt like home! Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful home away from home! We can't wait until we can return one day! :)

Trudy Davidson's reply:

It was our pleasure. I'm glad that you were able to start your life together at our Little Gray Cottage. All the best to you, Rick and Trudy
