About Richard Armstrong

Richard Armstrong and Dawn Boski are the owners of Cottage By The Sea. We are former owners of the very successful Riverhouse in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. We spend time each year upgrading Cottage By the Sea. We take suggestions from renters and try to make the cottage better each time they return.

Richard Armstrong purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Richard Armstrong chose Lower Keys Area

Dawn grew up in Big Pine Key and I started to come to the key's in the mid 80's to play music. We searched for many years for the right property and found it with Cottage By the Sea.

What makes this cottage unique

To be able to enjoy a great spot on the blue water of the lower key with some of the best access to the waters of the gulf or Atlantic. To be able to enter the ground level cottage and view the blue water right out the back patio door and windows is a plus.

A beautiful escape in paradise!!!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed Cottage by the Sea! It was very clean and cozy! The location was also perfect, it is about 20 minutes from Key West and 30 minutes from Marathon. The Venture Out Resort was a very secure and friendly neighborhood. They have a very nice pool, Bocce ball, basketball, shuffleboard, and many other games. We really liked the idea of having security 24/7 and the locked gates up front. As far as the house goes, it was perfect for us. Next time we will come with toilet paper and laundry soap, because we ran out on day 2, but that is our fault, we are first time home renters. This home is perfect for a family of 4. We will absolutely be back to this hidden gem!!! If you have a boat, it is ideal! we rented a boat, and it was very convenient docking it right at our back door. There is also a convenient fish cleaning station on the dock as well. If you're considering staying here, we strongly recommend it!!!!

Cottage By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

From the time you set foot into this cozy little cottage you can feel the pressures of life melt away.

Beautifully decorated and comfortable for the two of us. Walk right out the back door and have your morning coffee overlooking the water.

We hope to come back and visit again on our next visit to the Keys.

Right at home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better! Cudjoe Key is between our two favorite destinations, Key West and Bahia Honda. The cottage itself is positioned right off the channel, perfect for morning sunrise and evening sunsets or anything inbetween. It was very clean, comfy and made you feel right at home. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this cottage for couples or small families.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

House and location were great!! Only problem with the house was the accordion door in the hallway nearest the bedroom didn't close and open freely. It seemed to be off the track.

Perfect spot for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

This is a very lovely little home with many updates. It is very clean and put together. The bedroom has a queen bed that slept well for us both. Draw back the curtains and you have a view of the water from both it and the living room. The living room back door leads just footsteps down to a canal and the home is the third from open water with a spectacular view of the sunrise. The community is extremely safe with a guard house at the one entry. It has a very nice lagoon for swimming in the salt water, wonderful pool and hot tub, and there is even a store onsite with two put-ins for boaters. It is only about 18 miles from Key West but there are very good restaurants within a mile of the location and plenty of things to get into including snorkeling and diving nearby, visiting with the Key deer on No Name Key, and guided boat and kayak tours. A state park is just a fifteen minute drive away too. There is a bike at the home that you can use to pedal up to the closest restaurant less than 1/2 mile away. We couldn't have asked for a better place to honeymoon. If you want to be in the fray, this may not be your best choice, but if you want to kick back and relax to the quiet open water this is perfect. Communication with the owners was effortless and our security deposit was refunded within two days of check out. We hope to stay here again.
