Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Beautiful water views from this bayfront cottage. This modest and clean cottage lies along the northern shore line of Dona Bay, enjoying the same views and setting as the neighborhood of multi million dollar homes. The views and atmosphere are spectacular being just 50 feet from the water.
There is no smoking permitted on the property, inside or outside. Pets may be accepted with additional fee and deposit OR credit card on file. Please provide pet breed/info upon inquiry.
Enjoy boating, fishing or crabbing on your private dock. Boats and trailers may be accepted with additional fee for docking. Be sure to mention boat or trailer needs when inquiring. Provide boat size, make, outboard, or I/O, and depth needed. The boat lift IS NOT available for use without a significant deposit and/or fee.
The cottage is the downstairs unit of a duplex. The upstairs unit is rented from the first week of January through the end of March to a couple in their 70 s with a standard poodle. They have been renting the upstairs unit for fifteen consecutive years. I live next door and can assure you they are a quiet couple and the dog rarely barks. That is why we have had them as a neighbor and tenant for the last fifteen years. The upstairs is not occupied during any of the remaining months. It is then like a single family house from April through early January.

We live next door and have since 1994. We bought the neighboring cottage as a rental and have enjoyed meeting different people over the years. You can rest assured that the cottage guests will be well taken care of without me being an intrusion. We take pride in the cottage being next to our family home and we go above and beyond to keep every guest happy. If there is a problem, let me know so we can do our best to remedy it.
Bryan purchased this Cottage in 1996

This was a gem of a find. For starters, being greeted by the owner was so nice. Bryan went over those little details, that in many rentals, you have to figure out on your own. Even though we were familiar with the area, he also provided helpful information about the area. The cottage is located in a great location on the water. We enjoy kayaking and fishing so this proved to be the perfect location. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. If you like fitness, it's a great area to run, walk or bike. It's a very short drive to the beach and other great shopping and dining. Finally, the cabin had all the things you need including basic cleaning supplies. This was definitely a great place to stay!
Thank you Bryan for everything!
Lovely Waterside Cottage with Dock!
This is a lovely waterside cottage with a dock on Dona Bay. The view is delightful and location close to everything. It's a few minutes drive to the beaches and restaurants, and an even more special nautical location. Within 5 minutes you are idled to Venice Inlet and all the beautiful sights and moorings of the area. The water is shallow, maybe 3' at low tide, but a surprising amount of larger boats manage to nudge their way into the area's waterside homes. The cottage was a former side-by-side duplex -- now opened -- and has 2 front doors and plenty of space for privacy. It's quaint and dated, which simply adds to the charm. And the owners are world-class hosts. Stay for a week, you'll wish you had months. Lovely!
Fantastic Stay on Dona Bay!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our winter vacation on Dona Bay!!
The property was everything and more than described. The cottage was spacious, bright and beautiful. My husband and I love to cook so the kitchen was important to us.
The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use.
We loved the variety of birds that visited right in our yard from the rookery across the bay. We were also able to kayak at a beautiful launch right up the street. I also rode my bike to the beach and along the legacy trail which is nearby. There are also many restaurants and activities nearby in Venice.
Bryan was a perfect host and neighbor. He was very responsive and helpful to any needs we had.
I would highly recommend this property, I felt so fortunate that we were able to spend our winter here!!!
Good fishing spot
Good location on the water. Had no problem getting our 27ft boat in and out. Less than 10 minutes to open water.
Great location, quiet, unbelievable views.
Great location, quiet, unbelievable views. Bryan was great to work with and very helpful. Cotttage is exactly as pictured on inside and out. The bathrooms could use a remodel but everything worked great. You can't beat the price for this location and view.
Family and pet friendly retreat
The cottage is convenient to everything including the dog beach which was our main destination during our stay.
