Beautiful Cottage indeed

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is truly beautifully decorated and so clean, Christina was lovely and met us upon arrival and went through the essentials which we found really helpful.

It is perfectly located with the river walk, bars and restaurants only a short 5 minute walk away and with easy access to the main roads, the neighborhood is quiet and felt safe which was important for us travelling with two young children. Publix - 5 minutes’ drive away.

The pool area and garden are fabulous and we spent days at home just to enjoy it, we would definitely come back.

I just concluded a month's stay at this charming home. It was so comfy and homey and very nicely appointed. The lanai and pool were perfect for outdoor relaxing. The area is so quiet, yet within walking distance to Las Olas and the Riverwalk. The owner, Christina, is very charming and readily available to answer any questions. I've already made reservations for next year.

Family of three from Seattle

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place! We loved everything about it. I agree with other reviewers that photos cannot do it justice. It is a lovely gem, just two blocks from the Riverwalk which leads to the charming Las Olas district. After a leisurely breakfast in the screened porch, we would spend our days exploring South Florida, then come back for a relaxing dinner and swim. Groceries (like Whole Foods), French cafes, FLL airport and beaches are all within a 10 minute drive. The owner Cristina is very helpful and accommodating.

Charming and family friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cottage. I traveled with my husband and 2 teenage girls. The house was well maintained and the yard and porch were great.

We liked how close it was to Las Olas beach--5 minutes by car-- and enjoyed the Riverwalk and the Las Olas Arts district.

Cristina, the owner, was very helpful. She showed us the area and made sure we were settled in. I felt like I was staying at a friend's home!

Description and photos were accurate. Lovely, comfortable, well maintained cottage, garden and pool. Quiet, historic neighborhood. 2 short blocks to Riverwalk. Fully equipped kitchen. Relaxing screened porch. We enjoyed the pool immensely. Owner was most gracious to us. My cousin and I stayed there for 10 days. We plan to return. My cousin from Toronto, Canada agrees with this review.

Where do you live?

Two great months at this beautiful cottage in Sailboat Bend!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage's location is ideal. There is a great restaurant 1 block away. In addition, you can walk to the riverfront restaurants and attractions,the water taxi stand, and even the drug store. Las Olas, a charming avenue of shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes, and entertainment is very close too. Publix grocery store is only 5 minutes away by car.

The setting is very peaceful and private. We enjoyed using the screened in porch for our morning coffee, meals, and just relaxing or entertaining. Sunbathing and using the pool was a real treat. The landscaping around the pool and the rest of the house is beautiful.

Although the photos shown here are accurate and reflect the cottage's appearance and amenities, the cottage is far more charming and nicely decorated than the photos were able to capture.

We were delighted to find the cottage so clean and well maintained and especially pleased with the owner who was quick to respond to our questions and concerns and still respected our privacy! She was delightful!

We felt very much at home and plan to rent the cottage again. We also feel comfortable recommending it to our friends and relatives.
