A lovely, well-appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this week for our honeymoon. The house is located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The raised deck overlooking the ocean is wonderful. The owner took care of any problems promptly. There are some aspects of the house that are a bit worn around the edges, but nothing that will stop us from renting this lovely cottage again!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Hugh's Cottage is well maintained, clean, and completely private, absolutely perfect for a couple. I wish I could give it a bad review just so there would be more vacancies in the future and we could go back more often.

Wonderful, intimate hideaway with lots of personal touches. Beach is gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing, beautiful week of sun and Gulf and good eating. The bungalow was clean and well stocked. The beach is visible across the whole front of the house and the bedroom. The hot tub is well placed and private, clean, with great views at sunset. Very dark at night so glorious star watching with ocean music. We highly recommend a stay in a beach bungalow in a Florida that is slowly disappearing.

Simple relaxation... all you could want!

  • 5 of 5

Alligator Point is definitely low-key "no neon" environment... just what we (& our dogs) were looking for! The beachfront cottage & outside area were both everything the pictures show & more. Nice touches all around by the owner... even assisted me promptly & graciously on getting the grill burner working, which we put to good use! We really liked this place & would book again if returning. (Not the location for stimulation junkies!)

Another wonderful stay at the Beachfront Cottage at Alligator Point

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this cottage for several years in late spring, and decided to spend the Christmas Holidays in 2016. As always, we had a wonderful time at this wonderful little beach cottage at beautiful Alligator Point. The beach is so beautiful, and being dog friendly is perfect for our family. The house is wonderfully appointed and very comfortable. We always see lots of dolphins and other sea life, which is a big thrill for us all. If you are looking for a great place to stay at a beautiful, natural old-school Florida beach off the beaten path, we can't recommend this beach cottage highly enough!
