Well maintained and a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cute little cottage in June of 2015. We loved it! It was close to the beach and to shops. It was great. The house was well maintained and homey. It had everything we needed.

perfect fit

  • 5 of 5

just spent our 3rd January at this cottage and already made reservations for next year. The owners are wonderful. although we've never met in person we feel like we've known them for years--feels like we're staying at the 'family' cottage with beaches as white as the snow back home.

Very relaxing and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage. Well stocked for guests. Sunset can be seen from one of the living room windows:) My only issue would be the mattresses in 2nd bedroom. I have little kids so it didn't bother them, but not ideal for big kids or Adults. With that said, i would definitely book again.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's Cottage is very cozy and comfortable. It was very clean and had all the kitchen and bathroom supplies that I needed for the whole stay. It is located across the street from the ocean (very easy walk). They even had beach chairs and beach towels for us to use during our stay. I will definitely be staying here again next year!

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and were a bit hesitant, because we had never used VRBO before. We were both very pleased with the Captain's Cottage. The home is very clean and well maintained. The owners have obviously kept it updated and looking "beach chic." The cottage is only 1 block from the beach. It is a very easy walk to the board walk that takes you down to the beach. The beach itself is very nice and not crowded. Each evening we enjoyed taking our beach chairs and a bottle of wine to the beach to watch the sunset. It was very romantic.

This part of Florida is called the forgotten coast for a reason. It isn't developed nearly to the point that many other trendy locations are. It has the small town feel. We enjoyed buying fresh seafood at St. Patrick's fish market in Port St. Joe and bringing it back to the cottage to cook. The owner is a colorful older man who will entertain you even though he doesn't realize that's what he's doing. If you get him talking he won't let you leave. I find that part of the charm that this area has.

Everything met and exceeded our expectations for the cottage. We hope to come here again.
