What do we love about vacationing at the AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach? Let me count the ways!

-+- the beach - South Beach Oceanfront Park -+-

We and our children (and sometimes even our kids' best friends) love hanging out at one of Vero Beach's most excellent surfing, boogie boarding and swimming beaches,

On the South Beach oceanfront park beach, directly adjacent to the Cottages at South Beach (only one low- traffic road to cross) - the AQUA COTTAGE is THE CLOSEST home to the park and beach!

And we particularly like the security and safety of having a lifeguard present (200 level steps to the lifeguard station from the Cottages at South Beach);

New kitchen, new washer & new dryer! -+-

We appreciate knowing that our dinner is going to cook at the right temperature, our clothes are going to come out of the washer and dryer in the same or better condition than they entered, and our morning coffee is going to be fresh and wonderful!

-+- the fun indoor games & sports -+-

We appreciate having super fun indoor games and sports available to keep everyone happy in the evenings, on rainy days, on day-after Disney or Universal recuperation days, and on day-after sunburn days, including all kinds of fun / challenging board and card games which are located throughout the Cottages at South Beach.

Comcast cable TV opens the door to endless entertainment options,

And of course super fast internet throughout the AQUA COTTAGE brings the entertainment possibilities of the entire world to the Cottages at South Beach 24 hours a day / 7 days a week / 365 days a year;

-+- excellent base for Florida excursions -+-

We like to use the AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach vacation home as a base for further exploration in eastern / central Florida, with cruise departures, key resorts and cities being an easy day trip away from Vero Beach, including: Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, Cape Canaveral, everglades alligator excursions, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami;

-+- the public parks -+-

We love exploring Vero Beach's excellent public parks, including the kids playground and life-guarded beach at adjacent South Beach Oceanfront Park (only one low traffic road to cross).

++++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++++

The AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach is a newly updated / custom designed and custom furnished cottage home offering unsurpassed amenities and possibilities in its price range, unique to the Vero Beach, Florida area.

The AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach sleeps 6 family members or guests comfortably in 3 bedrooms with super comfy new beds (two twins in one of the guest bedrooms, one queen in the other guest bedroom, and one king bed in the upstairs master bedroom). The new sofa in the family room also converts to a sofa-bed just in case an additional small child needs a place to sleep - not recommended for adults.

The home is designed and completely upgraded to be comfortable and fun for family members of all ages, while at the same time private and relaxing for the adults.

The excellent location of the AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach (adjacent to South Beach Oceanfront Park) offers easy access to the Atlantic ocean.

The AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach is located only steps from a life-guarded beach, through adjacent South Beach oceanfront park, the home sits in the heart of Vero Beach's acclaimed South Beach area among historic buildings and estates, as well as being walking distance close to great restaurants and bars.

Because the AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach's American owner is one of china's largest antiques collectors / dealers, the Starfish Cottage renovation team, led by leading international residential interior designer Liza G., were able to source, select and incorporate a number of exceptional antique Chinese architectural elements, as well as both exquisite and provincial antique Chinese furniture, into the AQUA COTTAGE's incredibly comfortable custom designed interior design refurbishment. Don't worry, the house is entirely kid friendly!

Outdoor lovers will enjoy sunbathing or a nip in the ocean at the life-guarded beach, or even the experience of kayaking and surfing at adjacent recreational park areas with public beach access.

The soothing waters and white sandy beaches of the Atlantic ocean and Vero Beach's treasure coast await you at the AQUA COTTAGE at South Beach!

About Angela Waldrop

The inspiration for THE AQUA COTTAGE AT SOUTH BEACH comes from its designer in chief, Liza G, a world renown interior designer who splits her time between luxury home projects in Florida and China. She kept the Aqua Cottage design team on their toes as she ensured that we chose, positioned, used and repurposed Chinese antiques in conjunction with modern western furniture and furnishings in the most practical and beautiful settings. Liza's design direction resulted in the Aqua Cottage's emphasis on both beauty and usefulness, whereby important and collectible antiques sit side by side with simple but unique countryside items as well as modern appliances, furniture and furnishings. The owner's family also owns and operates the largest antiques dealer in Shanghai, China - Green Antiques. The owner of White Surf is an American lawyer, real estate developer and businessman living in Shanghai China, who regularly spends time with his family at White Surf in beautiful Vero Beach.

Angela Waldrop purchased this house in 2013

Why Angela Waldrop chose Vero Beach

AQUA COTTAGE was renovated in 2014 as one of the owner's extended family 'keeper' Vero Beach vacation homes. Vero Beach is where the folks retired long ago, and where part of the family has relocated. The other siblings and relatives travel to Vero Beach regularly. We love it here!

AQUA COTTAGE was upgraded with our own family in mind, and as such, no detail was too small in creating the perfect seaside cottage atmosphere. This cottage is both comfortable and fun enough to ensure that even the most jaded high school kid will love her/his vacation here at South Beach.

Cozy house, great location, poor management

  • 3 of 5

We spent a 4 night stay here with our family, and we had a great time. The house is very convenient to the beach, dining, and other activities. The house also comes stocked with all of the gear you might need for a day at the beach with a family. However, we arrived to discover that the cable and internet access were both down, and the A/C was struggling to keep the house at 80 degrees. There was also a load of laundry sitting in the dryer when we went to use it. The management company did send an A/C company out to check the system, and they did call the cable company. However, for the full 5 days of our stay we had not cable / internet in spite of promises that we would get a phone call / service call from the company. All of the negatives could have been avoided if someone simply came to the house to prepare for guests and make sure the house was "ready" (check the A/C, cable, etc.). All in all a good stay, but I scratch my head at why a few simple preparations were not done to make it a GREAT stay.

clean and fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here alone while our son was at baseball camp. It was just the two of us, but we couldn't stop thinking of all the others we could have had join us. This three bedroom house is perfect for the family or two couples and a couple kids. The house is a little older, but very clean and fully equipped with EVERYTHING you need. Most rental homes don't come with trash bags, toilet paper or laundry supplies, but this one had all that and more. It was just steps to South Beach and although we brought our own chairs and umbrellas, the home was stocked with chairs, umbrellas, a boogie board, a surf board, a wagon, cooler and more. You could not ask for a better location that is easily accessible and close to dining and shopping. I can't wait to go back with the kids and for a girls weekend.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved this place! Everyone had their own room, the kitchen was well stocked, and plenty of beach toys and chairs for the short walk to the public beach. This place has it all! Can’t wait to come back to our beach home away from home.
