I have stayed at Redfish cottage several times and love it! Joe is the best guy to rent from and wants you to have a good time. Everything you need is there. It is a fishing cottage and is described as such. With that being said, you are on the 0cean with a dock for a low price tag. It has what you need for a nice stay! I went there to fish and I did that off the dock and out in the kayaks. We also waded out on a nearby sandbar and caught fish also!
we stayed for 5 days, it was awesome, this is not a resort it is private, what you see is what you get, we loved it, we saw 1 other person from the house and heard one person call his dog, never talked to anyone around the house, there was just no one around. made the stay great. was able to catch fish and crab everyday from the dock behind the house, eat fresh seafood for supper every day. we will go back it was just an awesome get away. Joe the owner even called to make sure we made it safe, it says a lot about the owner. looking forward to going back.
This is the place for an adventurous family. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with only a couple of minor issues. It was secluded and quiet, but close to beaches. We have a 6, 9, and 14 year old and they all had a lot of fun. The two kayaks worked great, we caught and ate several blue crabs with Joe's crab trap and even picked our own oysters from the nearby oyster beds. Lots of wildlife in the area and the fishing was great (redfish, trout, flounder, even a bonnethead shark!) Alligator point has some nice ocean-side beaches and the north end of Bald Point State Park is a great bay (calmer water) beach with fishing and lots of hermit crabs to find. Don't forget to find the Gulf Specimen Aquarium and the Wakulla Springs State Park on your trip - neither will disappoint you.
Last thing - this place is a CABIN. If you are expect a 5 star condo with granite countertops and new everything, this is not the place for you. This is a place for those of us who like to get up close nature, not watch it from the balcony.
The owner Joe was very nice and answered all our questions, He even called to make sure we arrived safe. The redfish cottage has everything you need. We had a wonderful and relaxing week.
We stayed at the Redfish Cottage with our 2 teenage kids and had plenty of room. It was still very hot a few days, but as someone mentioned before, the cottage stay very cool and comfortable. It was very secluded, which we were looking for, never saw anyone else the whole time from the dock. It could have only got better if we had caught fish. The fish were there, just not biting during our stay, but we did catch and ate a few fresh crab every night. Very glad Joe keeps his price so reasonable so people can afford a little get away more often. Thanks for letting us stay in your place.
Had a wonderful time staying in Redfish Cottage the month of September. The best sunrises, sunsets, and overall view! So relaxing and quiet. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The dock is a treat, and the kayaks were a plus. The fact that it adjoins Bald Point State Park, and a boat ramp for small boats and kayaks is just down the street, perfect! Hope to be back.
