Fantastic stay / Super clean
Fantastic stay / Super clean
We stayed for a week and loved it! It was well maintained and clean. Our kids 6 & 18mon loved the place and even slept like champs! We met Farra & Bill who couldn't have been more friendly! They did there best to make accommodations for our kids if needed and recommended several places to visit. What was listed on the listing was exactly how described.....very cute place! Staying here was like being at home, making it very hard to what to leave.....we will definitely stay at this cute and comfy cottage in the future. The beaches in this area are outstanding, very cute town as well!

We arrived at the Cottage in June, my husband stayed through the end of September. We were welcomed by Bill & Farah with family style hospitality. The cottage now feels like our home. The location is great for those wishing to experience Florida without all the "commercial" distractions. Access to town is minutes down the road. Everything about the house; kitchen, appliances, sleeping arrangements, just everything was perfect. The property was always well-kept and owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and were very helpful. The beach is a bike ride away, the trails around the house are great for nature lovers. Ft. Pierce and Stuart are nearby and a must visit!! We plan to return every year!! Thanks Bill and Farah and family for your friendship and hospitality!!!

We spent the month of January and it was magical. The house was adorable and immaculate-every thing was new. The house is on 5 acres of land and it was great just walking through the grounds. Beaches were plentiful and close by. Weekends in nearby Stuart were charming and full of activity. The owners were so nice and catered to all our needs-real southern hospitality. Thanks for a wonderful month.We highly recomend this home to anyone looking for a real charmer!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Originally from Miami, in 2006 the owner's purchased this 5.5 acre oak and palm studded property, which projects itself into the Florida State Savannah Preserve, as a way to recapture the feeling of "Old Florida". The owner's trails through the property reveal stunning oak and palm hammocks and majestic live oaks. In 2009 the owner's completed construction of a Key West style home in the back of the property, on the shore of Henderson Pond, and made plans to restore the "Goodbread" cottage which was the original family home built on the property in 1941. Using Brazilian hardwoods, travertine marble, and granite countertops, the owner's completely restored and renovated this wonderful cottage which has had it's place in Jensen Beach history. Envisioned as a guest house to compliment the main home, the owners applied the same standards and style, completing restoration in 2011. Restored to accommodate the owner's personal guests, vacationers will feel that they are truly welcome. Privacy is maintained as the owner's home is unobservable through the palms and oaks, however the owners are available to meet any needs that arise.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Vacationing adults and small families looking for an affordable "Old Florida Experience", will appreciate the natural beauty and convenience of this rare location in Jensen Beach. Smoking not permitted. Crib available. Pets allowed with pet deposit.
