Dreamcatcher - Old Florida Cottage - Santa Rosa Beach - Community Pool
Description from the manager
Located in the Old Florida Cottages - a beach community in Santa Rosa Beach. Palm trees are everywhere, their shade casting a spell of calm and ease. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood is a 3-story, 4-bedroom + tower, 3-bath cottage that combines the best of the beach – convenience with a sense of belonging. The décor is traditional yet stylish, the layout modern yet cozy. Take in a view of the Gulf from the top story, or kick back with a drink on the deck that has been built around a palm tree.
Gather the family in the living room with a 36” flat-screen TV. The dining room seats 8, while the granite kitchen countertop seats 4. The deck off the kitchen has a gas grill and a glass table with seating for 8. In the evening, kick back for a quiet hour with your spouse on the front deck.
Dream Catcher has one bedroom on the first floor and three on the second floor. The third floor tower with a sleeper-sofa, and makes a great room for the kids to play checkers, backgammon or watch TV. The laundry room is on the first floor, behind the bi-fold doors off the kitchen, and a full washer and dryer. Outside is an outdoor shower, perfect for a quick, cool rinse after a day at the beach.
Access to the beautiful aquamarine waters of the Emerald Coast is quick and easy. Gulf View Heights Beach is just 200 yards away.

"The Name Says It All - DreamCatcher"
Left on 08/10/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Craig C.Reviewed Aug 10, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
There is a difference between a rental "house" and a rental "home". Dream Catcher is that Home at the beach that everyone dreams of with all the amenities you can imagine and yet there is so much more in the personal touches around the home. There is the perfect amount space to accommodate my wife and me with our two daughters and sons in law as well as individual beds in a fourth room for our two grandsons. On two evenings we were able to accommodate one of my nephews in the well appointed loft on the sofa bed. There is no shortage of windows in the home which lend to a great feeling of openness to the outside world. The enormous wrap around deck is an envious addition to the home with seating for fourteen and space to accommodate our own folding chairs to expand the outdoor seating to twenty easily with room to maneuver which worked out perfectly as the deck was able to accommodate my extended family that came over for a cook out. We loved relaxing in the family room at the end of a long beach day and everyone in my family had a place to sit or go and relax. I loved catching up on work every morning in the loft (which is a true third floor room) with its fantastic view of the gulf. Great beach art is prevalent throughout the house and even adorns the airspace in the kitchen. We could have not felt more welcome to be a quest at Dream Catcher.
We cannot sing enough praise about Dream Catcher, the home, nor can we give enough praise for Scott Stephens the Royal Beach general manager. Scotts; team is second to none in the area and they are by far the most customer service oriented agency we have had any contact with in Walton county. Call and ask for GM Scott Stephens or Dawn or Barbara Carmichael and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so very much for the high praise Craig! We're glad you had a good time at dreamcatcher and we appreciate the positive words. Dreamcatcher is a great property and the owners take a lot of pride in making it the best it can be for each guest. We look forward to seeing you again soon. ~Scott

Vacation was awesome! Will rent for 2 weeks next time.
Minor issue was not knowing no supply of toilet paper, paper towels....especially toilet paper and trash bags.
Master bedroom has odor. Not sure if from air conditioner or not. Smells a little like body odor. Had to buy and keep spraying fabreeze. Just odd really and didnt make sense. Don't think it is carpet but really was not sure. I would definately have someone check that out.
Loved the house and will rent again!! Great family vacation spot.
Also would supply renters with some commons household cleaning supplies like windex and furniture polish if you want tenants to maintain the house. I am a clean person and I clean up after myself! I had to buy these items and this is ca little odd to me.
I own a condo in Colorado. If we rent out, all of these things are supplied.
If you need or want a golf cart rental to travel items to beach I would recommend renting way before you get there! I wish someone would have shared that with me. Too late once you get there because no rentals are available.
Thank you so much for your review! We could not be happier to hear how much you loved DreamCatcher Cottage and we would love to have you stay with us even longer next time! We also appreciate your suggestions and feedback regarding the house. We will most certainly be investigating and eliminating the odor you mentioned. We also let all of our renters know that we stock the accommodation with a starter supply of trash liners, toilet paper, bath soap and dishwasher soap until they have an opportunity to visit the nearest store. This information is listed in the Guest Rental Agreement that guests sign when booking the property. We try to list as much information in that agreement as possible so our guests are fully prepared with everything they need for their vacation. We also do not supply properties with cleaning products as a precautionary safety measure. We would hate for any little ones to get into any cleaning supplies and get hurt. Thank you again for your wonderful review, and we look forward to your next stay with us at this awesome vacation getaway!

House was very clean and nice with all the the items needed for a week's stay. The pool at Dream Catcher was to small for the total of the guest durning my stay.
When the weather is good, DreamCatcher is the total package. We look forward to your next visit at this wonderful beach cottage!

"great place but smelled"
Left on 04/26/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Jason W.Reviewed Apr 26, 2013Stayed Apr 2013
We loved this house. There were many games for the kids and its so close to the beach. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars for everything was that it smelled like b.o./musty in the master. Someone previously clearly had a problem with hygiene and the odor is embedded in the room. Other than that it was perfect.
We love DreamCatcher too! It really is a perfect beach getaway. We are so sorry to hear about the odor in the master bedroom and wish we had been given the opportunity to take care of it for you while you were here. In the future, give us a call and we will be right over to fix anything that needs attention. Historically for almost 13 years, this home has always gotten rave reviews on cleanliness and guest experience. We hope to have you and your family visit us at this wonderful beach home again soon.

The Dreamcatcher is a wonderful property in a great location. The beach is a short, easy distance to walk and their several good restaurant choices in walking distance. If you ride bikes, there are many other great places that you can get to in minutes. We plan to come back again next year!

This home was an amazing place to stay. Our family loves to cook and eat in, and the kitchen was stocked with cookware, utensils, and all we needed to accomplish cooking in style. The home was immaculate and spotless when we arrived and the layout was spacious. The walk to the beach was very short, which made us all even happier! This home was even better than we expected from the website and we would definitely love to return again next year!
We just love to hear about a wonderful experience. DreamCatcher Cottage is a fabulous vacation property with everything to offer! The location is fabulous and the amenities are perfect for any vacationer. Thank you so much for your review and we cannot wait to have you and your family stay with us again at DreamCatcher Cottage!

"Inviting & Incredible!"
Left on 07/30/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 30, 2012Stayed Jul 2012
From the minute we arrived, Dreamcatcher, never disappointed! The cottage was warm, welcoming, and fully loaded and organized. The only things we needed to purchase were food, detergent, soap, and tissue. Loved the huge wrap around porch, shaded & secluded from the other cottages. We grilled out and enjoyed the large patio table and chairs for our leisure. The cottage had room enough for our party of 7. The upper 3rd floor provided a beautiful view of the ocean, and we also enjoy watching a few storm clouds roll through on occasion. This property's location provided an easy and safe walk to the beach, so we could come and go as we pleased. We hired a chair service to set us up on the beach each day with 2 umbrellas and 2 lounge chairs. Worth having the cover from a full day of sun.Without a doubt we would stay at Dreamcatcher cottage again! Loved the location because it is more residential and less crowded. Thank you owners of Dreamcatcher for providing us with a dream that created some wonderful memories for our family!!!
It is experiences like this that we strive for! It is so amazing to hear you loved the property as much as we do. The amenities and location provided at Dreamcatcher just can't be beat! Thank you for staying with us at Dreamcatcher and allowing us to provide you with a wonderful experience.

First time renting a house, usually rent a condo. The house was perfect for family of 4. Very clean, lots of whimsical local artwork throughtout the home; very spacious, great furnishings--very home like. Had bikes delivered to home, rode the paths; went to the beach once or twice a day. Thanks for sharing your perfect beach home with us.
Dreamcatcher is a wonderful whimsical property with lots of attention to detail and it is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you and the family again soon.

We can not say enough about our recent vacation to Santa Rosa! Dreamcatcher is the most spectacular property we have ever had the priviledge to stay in. It was equipped with everything you could possibly need along with the location being within of all our favorite restaurants and shops. We have been visiting this area for about 10 years and have never stayed in such a wonderful property. It was a true blessing and we can't wait until our next opportunity to reserve it!
