Overview

About the property

Best of both worlds with beach directly across street and a lush oasis on ICW

As you will see from the reviews, the is a peaceful get away with the best of both worlds at your front and back door. The beach is directly across the street and your mornings and evenings are simply gorgeous as the property is located on the Intracoastal Water Way (ICW). The property on the opposite bank is a Natural Reserve so there is nothing to disturb the peaceful view. there is no more perfect word to describe the look of the back yard besides "lush" which just adds to the peaceful setting. Guests always say that it is so much more beautiful than they expected! With two cottages to choose from, or both, you will enjoy sitting on the dock or lounging in the hammock as the various birds, otters, manatee and dolphin play in the water in right before your eyes. Pricing reflects JUST ONE of the cottages. The cottages are Pet Friendly and boat accessible. So please advise me of any pet(s) or if you plan on bringing or renting a boat in your inquiry as there is a nominal fee for pets and docking a boat. Just about everything is within walking distance. (see map) BBQ, Washer/Dryer, fire pit and hammock all provided make your stay even better.

There are two cottages known as cottage 1 or cottage 2. Descriptions of each cottage along with the pictures that are marked side #1 or #2 or both bdrms. Cottage #1 has one full size bed with carpeted bedroom floors The den has brand new tiled floors and a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, 4 burner stove top, microwave/exhaust and large toaster oven. It has a large bar top with stools in it's open concept entertaining/dining area. Cottage #2 is also one bedroom with a full size bed but has 2 baths! It has tiled floors and a full kitchen with an oven/stove, microwave and full size refrigerator. The bedrooms and main baths are the same size in both cottages and have sleeper sofas. New flat screen TVs in both cottages with cable and dual band WIFI. There is a dock for fishing, docking a boat or just enjoying with all the natural visitors we get! ((my other properties are listing #505747, 559948 and 515557 if this doesn’t happen to fit your needs. however no pets are allowed at these other properties.)

About Owner / Property Manager

I have been a VRBO customer from the rental side for years. So when I bought this property I knew what guests were looking for. No back aches with old beds or furniture. clean and open with direct access to the beach and boating.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

it simply has the best of boat and beach with privacy ! even the view across the Intercoastal Water way is private because there is a natural preserve across the water that will never be developed. The two cottages are under the same roof structure so a family could rent both which would provide the privacy and additional space for the adults while still having the children in the adjoining cottage. Again, the pricing reflects just one of the cottages so please request pricing for both.

What makes this cottage unique

waterfront, boat dock and the beach !

Comfortable Intercoastal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I best describe this cottage as comfortable, clean, great location, close to many great restaurants, good fishing off of the dock, great for watching dolphins who visit the intercoastal water almost every day. Secluded away from main road, you won't be disappointed if you rent this place for your next vacation.

The cottage was a welcome relief after a stay in another part of Florida in Condominiumville.

  • 5 of 5

While we were a quick walk to the beach we enjoyed the quiet location on the inter coastal.

The dock was a great place for sun and relaxing. The owner thought of a lot of details ... picnic table, grill, fire pit, and inside a few great supplies that made settling in easier.. s&p, Saran Wrap, lighter, coffee filters.... to name a few. The inside was very clean and comfortable. A few restaurants and a 7/11 was close by walking, and the trolley made it easy

To get around without driving and searching/paying for parking! We had a couple things pop up and the owner responded quickly and the cottage was well taken care of! Enjoy!

LOVED this place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 weeks in this cute cottage. It is perfect for 2 people, and can accommodate 4 with the pull out sofa. The second bathroom is a bonus. The place was IMMACULATELY clean when I arrived. The kitchen allows for simple food preparation. The owner quickly responds to anything that needs attention.The setting is peaceful and fun to watch the birds and fish from the dock. Dolphins visited almost every day. It is a short walk to the beach. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Small but, adequate for for our needs.

  • 3 of 5

Very convenient location for beach access. Quiet area. Beautiful yard and dock.

We were able to address the one issue we had with the owner/manager of the property in person. He was appreciative of the information and addressed the issue with the staff immediately.

I personally had a problem with the size of the bedroom. (So small that you could only get in and out of the bed on one side. One side was flush to the wall and when you're a senior citizen who gets up to use the bathroom several times a night and you are on the inside, you end up having to scoot to the bottom of the bed to get up.) The little apartment would work better for those who don't have to get up in the middle of the night. It's tiny enough that I would not recommend it for more than two people. There were only two of us and our dog so, it wasn't too bad.

Location! Location! Location....perfect!!!

Nice for smoke free renters!

  • 1 of 5

Should be listed as a non smoking. No smoking on the entire property which severely limited the use of EVERYTHING! Worst stay ever in our 45 years of traveling.

Owner's Response: I want to thank you for respecting my rules and the other guests around you while you were there. However, the smoking policy is well stated in my emails and confirmation instructions. Smoking is allowed in the front of the property which is EXACTLY 33 steps from the cottage. For this rule to make this the worst trip you've had in 45 years is laughable ! and frankly, sad. I guess you don't eat in restaurants anymore either because you can't smoke in them anymore either. There are other's that share the lush and peaceful backyard and dock at my property. Why would I allow your habit to ruin their experience?
