About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Duplex Unit Located On The Second Row On Atlantic Beach.

Kathy's Kottage is complete with all of the amenities that one would expect at home. For many years, it was used as a full-time seasonal rental; however, it has served as a home away from home for the owners in recent years. It is an extremely clean and well decorated home. It's a special place which you must see to believe. You will be amazed by the lovely scenic view and the unique architectural design of the home.

About Kathy R McGehee

I purchased this property while it was being built in 1979. It is my 'special place' which has been maintained to the highest standards. I am very proud of 'Kathy's Kottage' and love showing off the upgrades that are made each year.

Why Kathy R McGehee chose Atlantic Beach

Kathy's Kottage is in walking/biking distance to most everything in Atlantic Beach. Bring your bikes or rent ones from the local vendors. A bike rack is installed beside the house for your convenience and security.

What makes this cottage unique

Kathy's Kottage is a one-story building which does not require steps. There are steps off the oceanside deck which allow quick and easy access to the beach. Those that have problems with steps can easily access the beach from the street side of the building. A Trex wood walkway with an expanded patio area was built in 2013, which is not only beautiful but makes it especially easy to navigate from the parking area to the house.

The neighborhood is very safe and friendly. A beautiful public access walkway to the beach is located across the street from the back deck, just 43 steps away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your kind comments and I'm glad that you and your family had a great vacation. I really appreciate how well you took care of my home during your stay and I look forward to see you again in the future!

This is our second stay at Kathy's Kottage and we hope to return many times. The location is great for the things we enjoy at the ocean...relaxing on the beach, fishing, and dining. The house has everything needed for a comfortable stay. The owner is very friendly and accessible. She shared restaurant recommendations that were wonderful. We can't wait to get back!

This is our 2nd year staying here. We love it. A minute's walk to the beach which is a quiet neighborhood beach. Kathy's Kottage has everything you need to enjoy your time in Atlantic Beach. We're already planning next year's vacation here.

Atlantic Beach is wonderful. I enjoyed spending the days at the beautiful beach enjoying the waves. Going in September is wonderful as the beach is peaceful. My dogs loved frolicking in the waves.
