The Little House on the Bayou

'The Little House On the Bayou' is at the corner of Bayshore Drive and Partin Drive in the heart of Niceville, Florida. Come by boat or car, there's a free boat slip for your boat on the dock attached to property.

Quaint & Comfortable Cottage with Great Views of Boggy Bayou, it is completely furnished with everything you need to make your vacation special & complete! I have gone the extra mile & added all the extras, to make you feel right at home. 

Come and enjoy the nicely furnished, sparkling clean cottage which is fully furnished from towels to toothpicks! The cottage is very quaint with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a laundry room with full-size washer & dryer. The living/kitchen/dining area is open with a breakfast bar & stools. The master suite comes complete with a king size bed and sitting area over looking the bayou through large glass sliding doors. Down the hall is the 2nd bedroom with a queen bed. There are closet spaces and dressers in each bedroom. Each bedroom has a TV as well as one in the living room and a small one on the kitchen counter, all with cable and wi-fi.

Take a nice walk along the bayou and experience the natural beauty of Boggy Bayou. Relax & unwind on the partial wrap around deck with porch swing and plenty of outside seating and enjoy wonderful views of the bayou. Your family will enjoy all the comforts of home in this nicely furnished cottage. Alan's 'Little House On the Bayou' is truly a very special cottage!


A great boat launch is just down the street, easy & convenient!  Take your boat out to Crab Island in Destin & have a little fun in the sun!


We're only 4.5 miles from Destin's Mid-Bay Bridge and all the activities Destin has to offer. At the end of the day, you'll love unwinding in 'The Little House On The Bayou'

This was the second time we have stayed in one of Alan's Little Houses, and we have already reserved a spot for next year. We love it there! The houses are very clean and well-appointed. We've stayed in numerous houses throughout the country, and these are our very favorites. There is plenty of room for our gear, both indoors and out. I just wish that the double bed in one of the guest rooms was a queen size. The house is actually a lot nicer than shown in the photos. We brought our kayaks and paddled down several nearby streams every day, except the rainy one - and then we visited the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. The last time we were in Niceville, we went to see Fort Pickens, and that was interesting too. We also had our bicycles with us, and Alan provided a secure covered area to store them. Perhaps the best thing about the houses is that Alan is always available, and makes it a point to check to make sure everything is working and the guests are happy. If there's a problem, or you need some kitchen item, he is wonderful about fulfilling your request. He's the best!

This was truly a home. Every inch was SPOTLESS! Alan is a fabulous host and has everything a person could want or need. We can't thank you enough for a great "Gulf" vacation. Minnesota is pretty far away but hope to make it to "Niceville" again sometime. If you are looking at this place do not hesitate to rent it. You will not be disappointed!!

The house was beautiful and equipped with anything you could possibly need. It was spacious and yet homey at the same time and the owner's hospitality and personal touch was the cherry on top. I would highly recommend these lodgings to anyone looking for a nice place to go on a staycation or as an Emerald Coast launching point. :)



Super nice family vacation!    May 26, 2010

review star

We needed a place for the whole family to stay (adult children and all) while visiting my in-laws. This vacation home delivered an affordable, comfortable, clean, and spacious atmosphere where we all could gather. My in-laws especially loved it, as their tiny home only has one window air conditioner and this rental house had central air, plus plenty of room for everyone to have a seat and visit -- so we spent the majority of our time here. We loved being able to put together lunches in the kitchen, barbecue dinners on the porch, do our laundry when needed, etc. The owner was friendly (we really appreciated him giving my in-laws a tour before we made a final committment) and the house is exactly as described. The only complaint I had was that there are two other rental homes in the cul-de-sac (same owner), which are mentioned in the ad, but even though we requested pictures, availability and pricing, these were never delivered to us. It would be beneficial if each home had their own page and details. Also, it was a bit frustrating working with the property manager, as I had to email more than once to get a response and, once I paid the deposit, there was no acknowledgement and I again had to email to find out how to finalize everything and gain access to the house. A more proactive property manager would have been appreciated. However, everything turned out fine and we couldn't have been more pleased with the accomodations (and our deposit was quickly refunded a few weeks after the end of our stay). We would recommend this property and we would (and will) stay here again on our next visit!

So impressed with the attention to detail for a guest. Music was playing as we walked in, a bottle of wine waiting in the kitchen, it was such a wonderful way to begin our stay. The only thing missing was laundry detergent and the next morning it was by the front door without us saying a word. Can't say enough about how welcome we felt. Will definitely come back.

This is a very special house. We loved it. It was sparkling clean and it felt extremely roomy, spacious and new. It has absolutely everything you need. Do not take a dryer, an iron, bandaids, detergent, crockpot, soap, even shampoo. Just relax and enjoy yourself. I almost want to keep it a secret...but then he might stop offering it. We came down for a sailboat regatta at Fort Walton Yacht Club and stayed the week going to the beach. We enjoyed Henderson State Park in Destin. We also stopped by Turkey Creek in Niceville just a couple miles from the house. It is a real unique nature park. You can tube down the creek and really relax in the wilderness. The marina and boat slip is terrific. There is even free ice for your cooler and a nice gazebo and deck to enjoy sunsets, all just a few steps from the front door.

Alan was a fantastic host. The house was imaculate. Linens, towels and home like amenities were all very nice. Even new toothbrushes were sitting on the vanity sinks for our use. Great place to share with friends. Seperate rooms opposite in the house. All the amenities you would ever need. Great people at the marina. Slip was fantastic across the street. We will be back says it all!
