Guestbook comments from the owner

The space, the view, the hospitality were all very aptly described by our rental--- "Just Perfect"!!

Our first visit to Sebastian area was a delight,--punctuated with a festive Christmas Eve celebration at the town park by "Imani" (African Children's Choir), daily fresh fish from Judah's (just north on the River Road) and easy access to the beaches (soaking up the golden rays). Morning breakfasts on the patio with the fountain flowing and the magical peacocks' display-- refreshed and revitalized!

Many thanks to our gracious hos, Bill for sharing "a touch of Paradise""

With Peacocks too+++

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a month in the Peacock cottage. Perfect for us with one bedroom. The Cottage looked out on beautiful natural grounds. The patio is shaded by a large palm - the best place to sit out to enjoy the sun and cool breezes. Bill, the owner, became more of a friend. We will return for six weeks next year.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We love Sebastian and Peacock Cottage was a lovely treat. The location is central to everything Sebastian has to offer. The river, beach, parks, and wildlife refuges are all close by. The cottage was cozy, comfortable, and well equipped. Bill was easy to work with and available if you had questions. I look forward to returning in the future.

Potentially so nice...but

  • 2 of 5

Peacock Cottage is a charming. small cottage. It has a nicekitchen and a comfortable bedroom and living room, and an excellent shower in the bathroom. It is set in beautiful grounds, but unfortunately it is not permitted to use the grounds (other than the patio outside the cottage) as they are reserved for the renters of a larger property in the grounds. So you can sit on the patio and see glimpses of water front, but you cannot go near the water front. There are three peacocks living in the grounds, all male. They are beautiful but noisy especially in the early morning or when one of the several freight trains passes, sounding its horn six or seven times, which happens both day and night. We were pretty comfortable there, though towards the end of our stay the air conditioner failed, leading us to leave before the end of our rental but I believe a new unit has now been installed.

Owner's Response: The guests at the large waterfront house on the property expect their privacy (and pay for that) and this rental is NOT advertised as waterfront. We did allow your extra guest for NO charge, even though the property is only advertised for 2 guests. As you can imagine, the wild peacocks are not under my control and most guests find them quite entertaining. Unfortunately, equipment fails and the AC unit was completely replaced with a new unit within 1 day, and was temporarily repaired so you were not without air conditioning before the replacement.

Peacock Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A quiet, quirky cottage with lots of personality: highlights include an excellent king-sized bed, blackout shades in the bedroom and a water view. Cottage is well equipped for cooking, but it is within walking distance of several restaurants and there is a grocery store within a few miles. You will be entertained by the resident peacocks and visiting wildlife.

Owner Bill is friendly and offers great advice on local activities.J
