Families will love the amazing Magnolia Cottages by the Sea! This small community of Florida cottages is just across from Seacrest Beach on Scenic Hwy 30A. The location is ideal- about 1 mile from The Big Chill on 30A and minutes to Rosemary and Alys Beach! Boasting private, gated beach access and a seasonally heated community pool, Magnolia Cottages by the Sea is sure be the perfect peaceful beach vacation! Private Beach access is 500 yards away for guests who rent chairs and umbrellas through Shawns Beach Service only. Personal chairs and umbrellas are prohibited at the private beach.

Area Attractions:

Rosemary Beach is only minutes away, with shops and restaurants, including the Old World style town center w/coffee shop, bike and surf rentals, and unique shops.  Check out the open-air markets on the weekends. 

 “The Big Chill” is the incredible spot for dining and entertainment nearby. The Big Chill offers something for folks of all ages and tastes, from tacos and tequila, to wings, burgers and shakes, a stop here is quick, tasty and convenient, and comes with a side of entertainment at the outdoor amphitheater. It's a great place to catch a concert, sporting event, or a movie on the lawn.

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Grouper Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 970 feet out from the Inlet Beach access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Grouper Reef is at a depth of 12-21 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

"We really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and not too crowded. House was cozy and perfect for our trip!"

"Casa en zona tranquila. No había ruidos. Muy fácil llegar a la playa andando desde la casa. Muy cómodo."

"This house was excellent compared to other homes we have recently booked on the 30A. You will need to either rent beach gear (private access) or bring your own (public access). If you cannot climb steps (it’s a lot) drive down to the Inlet beach access. This rental would pair perfectly to plan ahead to rent a golf cart for the towns as well.
I have no complaints about this home, beds were comfortable, water pressure was just right, house was spotlessly clean and free of clutter, bikes were serviced when we arrived, and the kitchen pans were great! I would book here again and again! Thank you for the vacation!
Regarding renting the beach chairs, there is someone always out there to help and that area stayed deserted during our stay whereas the public access was extremely crowded. Save the hassle, rent the chairs and umbrella!"

"Great location, great space"

Stayed March 2023

"Perfect house! - This house was in the perfect location and the perfect size for our family. Everything was clean and as described in the listing. We loved how close to the beach it was and the neighborhood was so nice and quiet. The only thing is I wish it had beach equipment such as chairs, towels and toys since we live out of town it’s not feasible for us to bring that. You have to rent the chairs to sit on the “private” beach but with 6 in our family that wasn’t an expense we were willing to pay so we just walked down the beach a bit and the “public” beach was still not crowded and a perfect location."

Stayed March 2023

"Great place to stay. - Location was short walk to beach. Bike trail to everything a block away. Layout was great for 4 adults (can hold more). House was well stocked, clean, and in quiet area. Bike path easy bike to restaurants and shops."

Stayed October 2022

"Florida Vaca! - Comfortable accommodation. Everything we needed. A short walk to the beach. Quiet time of year."

Stayed September 2022

"Perfect! - This is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. It took about 4 minutes to get to the beach! RealJoy immediately answered my questions! Food choices are excellent. We definitely recommend getting the key lime pie at Paradis! After not traveling for 3 years, it was exactly what the doctor ordered! We will return!!!"

Stayed July 2022

"Had a great stay. - Overall the house was great. We did have a problem getting the dryer to dry clothes and towels so that was a big inconvenience."

Stayed July 2022

"Clean, quaint and perfect for our family of 5. I’ll say this about pretty much all rentals in this area - the late check in times (never earlier than 4:00) and early check out times (never later than 10:00) make for a great inconvenience when there is no flexibility or even option to pay a little extra for earlier check in or later check out. Therefore what could have been a 3 day, 2 night stay was really a 2 night, 1 day stay. This was an extension of another trip we had and ended up not being worth the extra effort and money. We loved the place though and we’d definitely come back."

Stayed July 2022

"Nice house, short walk to the beach and pool! We enjoyed our stay and will return."

Stayed June 2022

"This was a perfect home for our family of five to enjoy the beach. It’s located just a very short walk to the beach (like right across the road). There was a crosswalk with lights located at the entrance of the cottage neighborhood so that made crossing the only street between us and the beach safer. There were quite a few steps once you enter the code at the private beach entrance so that is something to be aware of if you have a lot of gear or have issues with steps. There were benches to sit and catch your breath though. The beach itself was nice and not too crowded with great beach service options. The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to have a few meals in. The screened porch was nice, shaded, and relaxing with a ceiling fan; perfect for hanging out in the morning or evenings. Every room had a ceiling fan it that’s important for to you as well. I’d say this will be a home we try and stay in again. I would recommend for any family of 6 or fewer."

Stayed August 2021

"Great vacation spot! - This house offered the perfect place for a family beach trip. It was a short walk to the beautiful beach and the cottage was spacious enough for our family of four. It was clean and had everything we needed. The space was quiet and relaxing."

Stayed June 2021

"It was wonderful! Right around to corner from the pool and super close to the beach. Very clean and literally everything you need is there waiting for you, with the exception of food. We had The Beach Butlers pick up our groceries and delivered SO WORTH IT!!!
I will try to book this same house next year!"

Stayed May 2021

"This three bed 3 bath stay was super fabulous,cute,cozy and perfect space for many quests. With just a short walk to the beach and the pool we had our fill of water fun. All along 30A was no shortage of food and scenic views. It is well worth the money you will not be disappointed."

Stayed November 2020

"Great house in a fabulous location! We loved the area and the beach was just a very short and easy walk even for our kiddos. Kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. House had plenty of towels, comfortable beds and bathrooms. Everything was well cleaned and decorated. Loved the porch too! We will definitely come back the next time we travel to the area!"

"Left today and want to return tomorrow!! Have suggested to several friends and family already!"

Stayed August 2020

"Thanks for you hospitality and real nice location!"

Stayed June 2020

"great time - Staying in a house is so nice. No people walking above you and no stairs to climb. The walk to the beach wasn't bad but there are about 55 steps down to the beach from the boardwalk. The parking is a little tight. The screened in back porch was my saving grace from my loud family :). Having a bathroom for each bedroom was a very nice."

Stayed March 2020

"Excellent house in a great little community. - We loved the house and the location. Easy walk to the heated pool and beautiful beach. The kitchen has every pot, pan and dish you could need. My only wish was that the screen porch could have been blown off. There was too much pollen on the floors and chairs to make it usable."

Stayed August 2019

"Great house - Loved this house & location! Quiet street, easy access to beach & quick bike ride to Rosemary."

Stayed April 2019

"Great location - House is in a good location with easy access to the neighborhood pool, which is heated. Also, very easy walking distance to the beach. House doesn't have beach chairs, but did have some beach toys (shovels and buckets) so that was very helpful. Great house and great amenities!"

Stayed March 2019

"Great Unit... Quick bike ride to everywhere! - The house was great! Clean and very well equipped. The home was a short walk to the beach. The home was also a very quick bike ride to neighboring communities. We biked to Seaside for the day, we often biked to the HUB (great place for a beer), we biked to Alys beach (Georges for desert!), We biked to Rosemary beach has well! My kids and wife really enjoyed the stay!"

"Charming - Great location, layout and overall vacation stay! Would definitely stay again!"

Stayed September 2018

"Well kept property conviently located to the beach and community pool! We will definitely return. - This home provided everything needed and more in a beach vacation. Often times you will not find a cottage with this location in close proximity to all that 30A has to offer. Lastly, it was quite the benefit of having a bathroom dedicated to each bedroom!"
