“Charming, cozy, eclectic cottage with beautiful view of the ocean”

What a wonderful find! This historic cottage has been well maintained (and obviously well loved) and offered all of the amenities that we needed to enjoy our 4 day stay. The screened in front porch that overlooks the ocean was so wonderful that we spent much of our time there! We loved the privacy that the landscaping around the cottage afforded. Judy, the owner, was very thoughtful and generous in sharing information and recommendations of restaurants, seafood markets and points of interest . Apalachicola a short drive away was so much fun with its history, cool shops, restaurants and boutiques. We will definitely be going back to Windswept!

Management Response

Virginia's family of 4 was a delight to host and so congenial. The Cottage was spotless so I'm sure you too would be delighted to host them.

“Quaint, Well Equipped, Wonderfully Situated”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My mother, sister and I just spent four nights at Windswept in Mexico Beach. This cute and pleasantly quirky Old Florida cottage sits across the road from the beach on a small bluff. Though the road is between you and the beach, it is a very short walk. The view from the comfortably furnished screened porch is beautiful--you can see the palms and the ocean, but not the road (though you can hear it). We spent the afternoons relaxing, reading and looking out over the ocean. Very nice!
The cottage had everything we needed--linens, beach towels, a well-equipped kitchen, beach chairs, a grill, even paper goods. Everything was provided.
We used the cottage as a base and traveled to St. Andrews State Park, Cape San Blas and Apalachicola for day trips. It was centrally located for visiting all those, and situated on the quiet end of already low-key Mexico Beach. (see my Mexico Beach review for more on the beach itself).
The owner was a pleasure to deal with. A good communicator, she answered all my emails promptly and had someone available to meet us at the cottage upon check in.
I gave this cottage a four instead of a five because of some housekeeping issues. We did notice that it could use a thorough cleaning. Nothing major, but just things like dusty blinds in the bedroom, dust bunnies under some of the furniture, that sort of thing. Easily remedied.
Also, though it didn't matter much to us, and the owner had told us this ahead of time, others might find the lack of TV stations and the sometimes weak wifi an issue.
All in all,though, it was an enjoyable and restful stay.
