Old Floridian charm tucked away in Gulf Coast's best kept secret, Sunset Beach! This bungalow was recently updated to include a sliding barn door for privacy between rooms, a cozy work space, and a state-of-the-art outdoor shower. Just steps away from the ocean and the intercoastal, this property includes a sit-on-top sea kayak and his & hers beach cruiser bicycles. Proudly decorated by local artists, The Cottage at Sunset offers all of the amenities in a location second to none!


The Cottage at Sunset packs a big punch in a small space.

The bedroom, secluded by a barn door, offers direct access to a full bath. A king size bed sits comfortably in the middle, with ample drawers and shelving, and a wall mounted TV to feel completely at-home. The vintage Hansen Hustler retro board is a reminder of the local beach culture in and around the Sunset area. The family room opens up to both the kitchen and workspace. A TV is mounted to allow for visibility throughout the room, while the kitchen, breakfast nook and brand new cabinetry are suited to ensure guests have access to everything needed within arms reach.

Outside, things get even better! With an open, yet private patio, family and friends may gather around for a post-beach happy hour or barbecue. If your party includes multiple couples or family, do not fear. The brand new outdoor shower is private, and offers hot and cold water, allowing for everyone to get ready for an evening of fun without the standard bathroom waitlist. While you're at it, feel free to throw a load of laundry in the new washer/dryer room. Bed linens, bath and beach towels are all provided.

Finally, the property is wrapped in a newly installed white vinyl fence, giving further privacy when desired.


A mere one minute walk to the west will place you on the cherished white sand beaches of Sunset. At the beach, guests will find a public gazebo, offering refreshments, seating and showers. Those with kiddies will want to be sure to hit the playground on the beach as well.

Walking east out of the property, puts guests on the intercoastal in less than a few minutes. Herein lies another hidden gem, as it includes a beach in itself at low tide (allows for viewing of frequent aquatic visitors), as well as a public dog park and tennis courts.

Though tucked away in a breathtakingly scenic community, access to restaurants and nightlife is not far. A mere three miles down the road offers the famous Caddy's Beach Bar, along with other popular spots to catch an incredible sunset. John's Pass Village and Boardwalk is 11 mins from the house and provides as the perfect location to find gifts for your loved ones, along with lunch, and again, some dolphin and manatee sightings.

Beyond that, the renowned restaurants, bars and activities of downtown St. Pete are a 15-minute Uber/Lyft ride away!

About Jessica Blevins

I work many jobs, the toughest (but most rewarding) of which is proud papa to my three-year-old son. He is a sweet, kind and caring little boy, but well, he is a toddler through and through! Beyond that, I am a recent graduate of law school, and while I don't necessarily know that I will practice law, I found the knowledge and skill set immediately applicable to my business. Currently my business partners and I own and operate a chain of dental practices across the Northeast. However, as the Southeast has beckoned me, I've turned my attention to purchasing and renting properties that I feel will leave visitors with more than just a comfortable place to stay. Rather, I hope that they create lifelong memories and return every year. I am adventurer, and as such, love to travel the world; be it the Western states to hit some fresh powder skiing/boarding, or Central America to take a reflective step back, and live life amongst the locals. Whenever possible, I will stay at a VRBO, as I find the community and relationship building is far superior to that of an average hotel. My goal is to welcome you to my home and give you the ultimate local "old" Florida feel.

                                          Cozy bungalow a stone's throw from the beach

                                          Dona L.

                                          The house was just as it was photographed. Clean and charming and a very short walk to the beach. Great neighborhood & we loved that it had bikes and a washer/dryer! We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

                                          We love it

                                          Leroy M.

                                          We can't wate to go back
