|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Imagine you are on this porch having a candlelight dinner or sitting on the large deck overlooking the ocean while watching a magnificent sunset. Dreams really do come true in this charming cottage by the sea. Enjoy the peace and quiet of staying in a house directly on the beach and avoid the hassles of condo living.
The cottage is divided into three separate units. There are two 1 bedroom/1bathroom units downstairs and a large 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom unit upstairs. The units are rented separately. See the listing for charming cottage by the sea i for information on the one bedroom units.
The 3 bedroom unit has recently been renovated with all new appliances, furnishings, carpet, and accessories. The large 3 bedroom/2 bathroom unit takes up the entire top story. The kitchen and dining room open into the living room for a great room effect with high ceilings. From the living room you walk out onto a large porch to dine or enjoy the sounds of the surf and beautiful sunsets. The kitchen is fully equipped with a new refrigerator/ice maker, microwave, oven, washer/dyer and dishwasher.The master bedroom has windows overlooking the ocean front. It features a queen size bed, tv, and a bathroom with a large shower. A second bedroom has two twin beds and a third bedroom has a queen size bed. The second bathroom has a full shower/bathtub.
One of the main attractions of the charming cottage by the sea is the huge backyard and decks that overlook the large, sandy white beach! All visitors can enjoy this private area or take a few steps to play in the waves or collect seashells on your beach walk! This is one of the many reasons our renters come back year after year! Hurry and make some memories of your own!
The place was unbelievable . The view is worth a million. Very clean and everything they said it was. The pictures don't do justice. Ruthie was the sweetest person and was great help. Can't wait until next year.
Just returned from a weeks stay at this cottage. Wonderful experience. Had a great time. Very clean cottage with everything you need. The cottage is everything it is advertised to be. A few steps from a beautiful clean beach. Would definately stay here again. Planning a trip for the fall or next year. We rented the one bedroom on the lower level.
My review of Charming Cottage By The Sea III. The location is very good, with easy access from Gulf Blvd. The rental is large with 3 bedrooms and two baths, beautiful views of the sunsets, but that's about as far as it goes as far as being a great rental. The pictures must have been taken awhile ago because what you see isn't what you get. The carpet is very dirty, the wallpaper is pulling away from the walls in a couple of places, there is mold around the kitchen sink, vents were almost black with dust and dirt, none of the beds had mattress pads or any protective/waterproof pads. So when we took the sheets off of the 2nd bedrooms bed we notice old blood stains. In the three weeks we stayed there I could smell urine in the third bedroom, upon stripping the bed I found a urine stained mattress. Gross!!! We were laying on that! You won't be able to open the second bathroom door fully because the bathroom floor is uneven, and the towels are stored under the sink which has a huge hole in the wall with dirt and junk falling through. There are no usable lights going down the stairs from the deck. So take a flashlight with you. The living room furniture is filthy, it's the same furniture that they show in the pictures, but very dirty and full of stains. After we rented the place the cost went up about 45% a week. It is not worth what they are charging per week. So my advice would be to look around and compare places. Also look for places that have more than one review.
A jewel tucked away in Indian Rocks Beach! Wonderful views, beach and accomadations! Ruthie, the manager could not have been more helpful. I highly recomend this rental for a relaxing get-a-way.
