The Pelican Cottage is perfectly located to enjoy the fishing, kayaking, hiking, nature activities, golf, boating, surfing or just going to the most beautiful uncrowded beach. Pelican Cottage is named after Pelican Island just minutes away.
Pelican cottage is a quaint 2 bedroom cottage located across from the Indian River and is close to one of the best beaches in Florida. The cottage is perfect for those who appreciate Old Florida and do not want to stay in a modern hotel. After a busy day at the beach, fishing or kayaking enjoy the screened in porch with river breezes.

About the owner: Our family is originally from New England and we love old interesting properties with charm and potential.We were interested in saving the cottage from becoming a bank or McDonald's someday. The location is excellent and we spent a lot of time and energy restoring the cottage to reflect it's historical fishing cottage ambiance.
Why the Owner Chose Sebastian: When we lived in New York City we restored some brownstones in up and coming neighborhoods. Keeping the architectural integrity and adding a splash of modern conveniences like flat screen tv's was the goal to make a pleasurable vacation experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Sebastian is like an old fishing village. Pelican Cottage is where our grandparents age group stayed. It gives you a glimpse of the past. If you are fussy and a perfectionist please stay at the Holiday Inn or the Ritz .
