"Moondance" (formerly Mood Swing) was custom built in 2014 ... is just what you need if you enjoy cooking and outdoor living at the beach!

You will love the convenient beach front location with private beach access as well as the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from almost every room in the house or from its more than 2,000 square feet of covered decks, screened porch, patio & sundeck.

In spite of Hurricane Michael, we are back even better than before!

We have added a GROUND-LEVEL PATIO with FIRE PIT, picnic table and area for sunning with chaises. We also have a new fish cleaning area with sink, outdoor shower and shed that stores all the fun beach equipment we provide for you!

The middle level has a 1000+ square foot screened porch with a DELUXE OUTDOOR KITCHEN that has 2 Primo ceramic grills, cook top, full-size fridge, prep sink and lots of cabinets with all the necessary utensils. In addition, this level has a variety of outdoor areas for relaxing or spending time together including chaises, swings, day bed swing, benches, various tables and LARGE FLAT-SCREEN TV.

Our 5 bedroom, 3 & 1/2 bath home easily accommodates 12 people in beds... NOT bunks or sleeper sofas!

The arrangement of the bedrooms provides the privacy that makes Moondance perfect for having another family, in-laws or grandparents as your guests...and, although Moondance is designed to give everyone a lot of their own space, it also entices everyone to be together...particularly on the HUGE screened porch.

We provide fine-quality linens and bath towels, plush beach towels (6), beach chairs (6 to 8) & other beach equipment, soaps & detergents, paper towels, TP, WiFi, cable and much, much, MORE!


The GROUND LEVEL has ample covered parking (enough for 4 or 5 cars or boats, depending on size) and is where there is a storage room with a plentiful supply of beach chairs & rafts, a beach cart, cooler with wheels, umbrella, beach toys and much MORE, kept for your convenience. There outdoor shower with hot water, a fish-cleaning sink, fire pit, chaises and picnic table.

The MIDDLE LEVEL has a large sun deck with custom-made mahogony chaises and a huge screened porch that spans the entire front of the home, and runs the length of the house. The screened porch is equipped with a DELUXE grill island that includes 2 Primo ceramic grills & cook top, a pub-height dining table and ceiling fans that make it easy to dine 'al fresco' while enjoying the view...however, you may just want to curl up in the porch swing or porch bed swing and read a book or take a nap. This level also contains two bedrooms that share their own private entry foyer and a full bath. The Gulf front mid-level bedroom has a king bed, flat-screen TV, ceiling fan and Kuerig coffee station. The other mid-level bedroom has 2 full beds with a ceiling fan.

The TOP LEVEL is entered from a covered porch overlooking the Gulf. It has a vaulted great room that includes the living area with comfortable seating, 39-inch flat-screen TV, stereo, and a double-pedestal glass-top dining table. We personally reclaimed the heart-pine flooring from beams milled from a 100+ yr-old-building into wide-plank flooring especially for this home. The well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar has a pantry and stainless steel appliances.

There are 3 bedrooms on the top level: each has a king bed & ceiling fan. The master bedroom has incredible Gulf views, a 32-inch flat-screen TV, a full bath with walk-in shower and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom on the top level has a private half-bath & flat-screen TV with DVD, and the third bedroom is adjacent to a full bath that has two vanities and is equipped with a tub/shower combination. The utility room with washer and dryer is located on this level.
