Om Shanti Seaside Cottage

Pet-Friendly Cottage on 30A with Screened in Porch, Fenced in Yard and Ocean View

Om Shanti, a yogic term meaning Universal PEACE, refers to a state of being mentally or spiritually at peace. Peace of mind is precisely what we want guests of Om Shanti Seaside Cottage to experience when you visit this unique area of Florida. This cottage soothes guests in the colors of nature with soft hues of gray, white and sea salt blue. We want you to be transported into the sounds, colors, and shapes of nature, helping you feel more at one with yourself. We welcome your inquiries and invite you to experience our home as your own.

Spend a quiet morning at the beach watching the magical dolphins, then have breakfast on the screened porch, and enjoy the wide-open gulf view under the ceiling fans. Let the kids or pets play in the fenced yard while you prepare dinner on the gas grill or in the newly remodeled kitchen where the Gulf waves still catch your eye. A glass of wine or your favorite cocktail is a nice complement to a colorful sunset, and a steamy outdoor shower at the end of the day is another sweet treat.

Located on 30A between Apalachicola (16 miles) and Port St. Joe (10 miles), this cottage provides the perfect zen-like atmosphere to enjoy the broad sandy beaches, unspoiled views and laid back pace of Florida’s Forgotten Coast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good location, but not great/reliable amenities The rental equipment was very basic, no starter toilet paper and we arrived late in the evening, !!!!AT&T does not have any cell service here!!!!, the internet only worked part of the time, and the two main TVs had a short or the cable wouldn't work (even after the repair guys came - they said one was just broken, they fixed the other but it only turned on once, then wouldn't turn on again the next day all while it rained and kept us home bound most of the trip). The upside - customer service in the booking process was very helpful and attentive. The house was clean and laid out nicely with a short, convenient walk to the beach. The screened porches were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful views & Easy beach access We were there for the week of July 4th, this house was perfect. Great location with great gathering area under house. I can’t think of a thing that we needed that wasn’t provided. Can’t wait to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beach Escape We visited this home last October and fell in love. This beach home had everything we needed and is super close to the uncrowned beach. We adored the screened porch and the fenced yard; our dog felt right at home with these features. We loved this home so much that we booked for the same week the next year the day we returned from vacation!

Listening to the ocean from the porch was wonderful. At night the sky lit up with stars, magnificent! It was very hard to leave this lovely home.
