''This rental made our Alligator Point visit unforgettable''

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 days here and it was absolutely fantastic. The views are amazing, the house was clean and spacious for 900 sq ft. Great location and very peaceful, we might have seen 10 people on the beach our entire stay and that was not at the same time. Everything we needed was at the home and we loved sitting on the deck with our morning coffee listening to the waves crashing. The spot was actually ''magical'' it felt as though we were on our own private island. The outside shower is the best, the husband loved it. He never even tried the one in the house. The pictures don't do it justice, there are wonderful lounge chairs to take in the sun on the deck and a picnic table to eat all the days catch on. We love this place... Thank you to Hugh he was very helpful with questions I had and it was a pleasure to meet him on the beach, he lives in ''paradise'' and we were able to enjoy just a little of it thanks to him. The four legged children had a ''blast'' also. Until we meet again....

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a really relaxing time. I would have given a fifth star but there were two days of inclement weather and we couldn't get in the water. Had fun in Apalachicola and found a good fresh seafood market in Carrabelle. We want to go back for another vacation.

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.
