Wonderful, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful weekend at the cottage. The home was the perfect space for us to have a weekend away from home. We enjoyed getting to kayak and spend time outside. Dennis and Debra were very accommodating and helpful. We will definitely be back!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful setting backing right onto the canal with a view second to none! The cottage was a perfect size for the two of us (and our dog). We spent a good part of each day watching the wildlife in and around the canal, including turtles, stingrays, an otter, white ibises and a rather tame great blue heron named Big Bird. The canoe, kayak and paddle boat were great for exploring the nearby waterways that connect to the canal. Because of the unseasonably warm weather, the manatees had already left the area for the cooler waters of the Gulf, but that was only a minor disappointment given how great our stay was in every other way. Thanks Dennis and Debra for a wonderful time... we look forward to returning next year!

Perfect Stay in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at this beautiful cottage! From the moment we arrived, Dennis and Debra made sure we had everything we needed. They live next door, but we didn’t hear or see them. We had complete privacy, but it was comforting to know they were there if we needed anything. The cottage is so lovely, filled with antiques and quaint decor. It had everything we needed. Every morning, we would walk out the patio door and in just a few steps, we were sitting by the crystal clear water. My husband and son caught fish. We used the kayaks and canoe to paddle to the small lake where we saw manatees and stingrays, and they caught small bass and bream! The local owl hooted at us daily! The fenced-in yard kept our two dogs safely enclosed. There are lots of thrift shops in the area, and the shrimp at The Freezer (local restaurant that our hosts recommended) was absolutely amazing!! We cannot wait to stay there again! Thank you Debra and Dennis for sharing your little piece of paradise with us! 😊?
