Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

St. Teresa beach is a private and secluded white sandy beach. All of the homes are private family homes - no hotels or apartments. The Cochran Beach house is located on the site of the first home built on St. Teresa because it was and is the most beautiful location on the beach. The water is 100 feet away - right out the front door.

The home consists of one floor, a large main family room with open kitchen with three bedrooms off the main room. The master bedroom features a queen bed, a newly remodeled master bath with a large free standing tub, walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet. It has French doors that open to the front screened porch and the ocean. The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the main/family room. The front bedroom features a full size bed and also has French doors that open to the front porch and the ocean. The third bedroom has twin beds. A full bath is between both bedrooms. The main family room also has a sleeper sofa double bed.

The front porch is screened and runs the entire length of the home. A perfect place to relax and listen to the water, take a nap (swinging hammock provided) or watch the kids play in the water and on the beach.

If more sleeping space is needed, the property includes ($35 per night), a full bedroom with a full size bed and a 3/4 bath in a detached building. The room includes a small refrigerator, personal coffee maker (coffee provided), a flat screen TV, and a BluRay player with internet connectivity.

Additional amenities of the property include: outdoor hot and cold water shower, and a screened in fish cleaning porch also with running water.

The fishing on and around St Teresa Beach is excellent. For those guests that wish to bring their boats or jet skis, we have two permanent moorings in front of the house. One close to shore for smaller boats and jet skis, and one further out for larger boats.

During our peak season, April - mid Aug, we rent for a minimum of 7 days with check-in/check-out on Saturdays.

Our family has enjoyed this little piece of heaven since 1929. We would love to share it with you so you can make your own special memories at St. Teresa Beach.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Cochran house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation! There is plenty of room, the kitchen is well-stocked, the bedrooms are comfortable, and the screened in porch is delightful. It is so convenient to be just steps from your own private beach and our family really enjoyed the kayaks and paddle board. We will most definitely stay here again.

Can't wait to come back!

Very comfortable and relaxed family home. My favorite thing was the screened porch facing the water. Back home and looking forward to going back next year.

Fantastic Time!!! As Arnold says "we'll be back!"

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations me and my wife ever had. The house was amazing old style Florida, with a back porch facing the beach, with a killer view. We had our older German shepherd with us. The one story floorplan and not many steps was idea for her. The fishing was great out on the beach and the dolphins would come up and fish by the sand bar daily. One day a pod of about 40 dolphins come up to the sandbar to feed. Pretty cool thing to see. Do the circle corral to trap the fish between the beach and the sandbar. I can't say enough great about this place. It was a very private beach with very few people coming by. Can't wait to come back and stay again.

Great family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the Cochran House! It is very secluded and quiet. It is a wonderful place to wind down and relax. The weather was phenomenal the whole time. The house was very clean and spacious and filled with tons of household items that are available for you to use. The screened in porch was one of our family's favorite features of this house. It is huge with lots of comfortable furniture and a big hammock. Great place for early morning coffee. The ocean is right out the back door. It is filled with marine life. We saw sting rays and dolphins every day and some of the dolphins swam within 5 feet from us! The waves are not rough, so it is a great area for small kids to swim. We paddle boarded and kayaked several times and loved it! There is a sand bar, and every night at low tide we would go out to it and search for sea shells - most of which are inhabited by crabs and snails. There are great local seafood restaurants in the area. We went to Coastal Cafe and Mad Anthony's Waterfront Grille and enjoyed both of them. We also visited St. George Island a couple days while there and climbed the lighthouse. Blue Parrot Cafe is a nice place to eat if you visit St. George, and if you have a sweet tooth Aunt Ebby's Ice Cream is a great place to visit as well. All in all, we had a great time on our vacation to St. Teresa Beach. The caretakers were very helpful and kind to us throughout our stay. We would love to come back again in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
