The location was great, the weather was perfect. The "cottage" needed several improvements.

  • 2 of 5

First of all, this is not a cottage, but one of a four-plex with four different owners. Three days into our vacation of eleven days, the apartment next to ours on the first floor began its renovation with a very loud jack hammer tearing up the concrete to put in new plumbing. After that the contractor tried to keep the noise down until they started on the front porch a few feet from ours.

Secondly, several important aspects of life in our apartment are troublesome: the AC in the LR is so loud that one cannot converse or hear the TV; the microwave does not take most of the dishware, even pure glass, without making an awful noise; the toilet is diminutive and is in a space that is so cramped that the tp is hard to reach. Bad "renovation" of the bathroom. All of that needs to be remedied. That said, the decor is nicely beachy, colors nice, and being able to open the doors to the porch and listen to the waves is very enjoyable. But I would not recommend this spot to a friend.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear about your stay at our "Old Florida Cottage". We listen and take reviews from past guests seriously and try to respond to their comments.We have had 37 reviews from guests in the past with an "excellent" rating of 4.6 stars. As to the adjoining neighbor, I had no idea or control of them remodeling their place. I will continue to get better and improve on what is already a cool place to stay and hang out on the beach. With regards, Rick Hunter

The inside of the property is great! Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We were there right after Irma hit and did not get the pleasure of enjoying the water too much but simply relaxing and laying on the beach for a while each day was heavenly. Would definitely do it again.

Had a wonderful time....Until Irma arrived!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed staying in this cottage. The ground floor availability and boardwalk out to the beach were especially nice for our daughter that has mobility issues. All the comforts of home were there for us to enjoy. Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to spend some relaxing time on the beach.

Mom and Daughter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I had a wonderful time here! It had everything we needed to relax and do nothing! We cooked every night and had everything we needed except the fresh shrimp we bought one block from a man and his truck! It was cloudy and raining for our stay but we loved the screened in porch . The beach is about 50 feet, the pictures make it look like 500 feet. Great for your puppies and tired sandy feet. Neighbors are quiet and nice. We would rent it again.
