*** WE ARE 5 STARS AND 12 YEARS RENTING OUR PRIVATE HOME!! ***
A little about the Beach Cottage. It is the original home on the property and sits independent on a large double lot next to the 3/1 Beach House. Both are private and are in a excellent location being 150 feet from beach. It is very private and unique because of the location and all of the landscaping. We purchased the house several years ago from a local artist who had it for 32 years and have renovated it back to a house from an art studio the prior owner made it into. It has all been upgraded to to the quality of a new home but we restored all of the cypress and terrazzo to keep it's Old Florida Beach House charm. There is no other home this cool or romantic to rent on the Key it looks like it came straight off a HGTV episode! It is a rare find on the key because of it's quite location in a residential neighborhood as well as its 2 lots give you lots of open area with botanical gardens making you feel like your in you own private beach compound. It is located 1/2 mile from the state park and 3/4 of a mile from the restaurants, bars with live entertainment and shops.
The BEST PART is you will find yourself a "stone's throw" (150 ft) from a wide private beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
Since this is our family vacation home you will find it's like staying at a friend’s home not a hotel. It is furnished like a home and you will find everything you will need with the exception of a beach towel and your clothes. (ALL ROOMS HAVE CABLE TELEVISION AND WIRELESS INTERNET) You can see more pictures and see our awards and reviews.
