Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Central Cocoanut - The Urban Cottage

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

It’s shabby chic meets high tech and it’s all in the details! Elegant, light and airy and just darn adorable best describes The Urban Cottage. Be the first guests to experience the luxury!

The Urban Cottage at The Bryant House is a newly restored 950 square foot Historic cottage just blocks away from the inter coastal waterway. It was built in 1939 for Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Bryant. As owners of McKown's Market, the Bryants worked downtown and raised their family in this quaint cottage. Lovingly restored, the sensitive and sustainable renovation has maintained a cottage feel with all the modern conveniences in a fantastic downtown location.

The majestic hand carved Mahogany 4 Post king-sized bed along with high quality bedding and down comforters creates a romantic, elegant Master Bedroom that is spacious and inviting. The Living Room has views of 50 year old azalea bushes planted by Mrs. Bryant in the front garden. A leather sectional couch provides a comfortable resting area for guests. The open floor plan allows viewing of the 40” LED Smart TV from the Kitchen, Living and Dining Rooms. The sparkling new eat in gourmet Kitchen overlooks the private back yard and has all the amenities including brand new appliances with washer and dryer. A modern spa inspired Bath Room has tile, marble, inlaid pebble stone and a walk in shower with fresh fluffy towels provided. The bright and sunny Dining Room has windows on 3 walls, French doors and a dining table that seats 6 with a picturesque view that lets you enjoy Florida's natural beauty while you dine.

A lush tropical yard with mango, avocado and loquat trees, sweet smelling jasmine and frangipani surround a fire pit to warm up to or lounge about for sunbathing and enjoying the beautiful Florida climate. The patio is equiped for grilling, an herb garden and outdoor dining for four in the shade of an umbrella.

The photos of the urban cottage is what caught our eye when we were looking for a vacation rental. What we didn't expect was that as beautiful as the pictures were they didn't compare to the real house experience.

Because we are renovators ourselves we especially savored their craftsmanship and artistry at this home. The beauty & attention to detail coupled with interior decorating was amazing.

Great hosts and super helpful!

I would highly recommend this home for a vacation rental.

Quaint Florida Cottage Setting

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to vacation! Close to downtown restaurants/entertainment and all activities at St. Armand's Circle, Lido Beach and Long beaches. The cottage is incredible with its design and decorating, giving a relaxed and comfortable feeling. We have stayed at a lot of VRBO properties but none have paid attention to detail like the Urban Cottage. It is intelligently stocked with everything you might need to get you started and keep you going during the stay. The owners were very attentive and readily available...although the only time we contacted them was to say how great it was staying at their cottage. To be fair, the only issue might be the neighborhood. But we never had a problem so I would still highly recommend the Urban Cottage. FYI - this is the first review I've ever provided - that's how much we enjoyed it. We will definitely be returning!

Delightful Down to the Last Detail

  • 5 of 5

We've done holiday rentals all around the world, and we've never found one as comfortable and tastefully decorated as this one. The Pettus's are remarkably generous and detail oriented hosts, and the kitchen lacked not a single thing to enjoy a couple of nights of cooking after a visit to Sarasota's wonderful farmer's market. We loved it from start to finish, and will enthusiastically recommend it to friends and family.
