I didn't want to check out!

  • 5 of 5

I'm driving across country on a move from DC Metro to the Pacific Northwest and made a 3 night stop in West Palm Beach to visit my father. I stumbled upon The Cozy Cottage during the early days of my trip planning and, after looking at a lot of hotels and other rentals, I kept coming back to the cottage because the place looked perfect for my needs... fenced yard, nice landscaping, cute looking interior, full kitchen, great location for walking to shopping/food/park..., room for both my daughter and me to sleep, and PET FRIENDLY! From the moment I booked I wasn't disappointed:

- Grenville ("Grenny") called me the day I booked my stay to introduce himself and see what I needed. Who does that these days?! We chatted easily and he made me feel confident in my choice.

- Grenny texted me a day prior to arrival to get my ETA so he could meet me out front and show me in. I would not get such personal service anywhere else, yet it was not overwhelming.

- He met me out front when I drove up. He has someone living below the cottage (Harley) who works for him and both of them helped me to get settled. I had driven two long days and had my hands full with 2 dogs, a young daughter, and a bunny rabbit (that I forgot to mention when I booked). We were welcomed like family. (Sidenote: my husband is already settled in our new home and is very concerned about the well being of his 5 girls. I couldn't have felt safer!)

- Grenny gave suggestions and directions for everything I needed: dog friendly restaurants, a wonderful park to take my daughter and the dogs, drugstores, Publix, etc.

- While there I was able to enjoy the yard alone or with company. I had everything I needed and the cottage was cozy!

- BONUS: his dog Buddy is so friendly with other dogs AND both he and Harley helped me with my dogs and anything else I needed throughout my stay. Although I do not know if they welcome ALL bunnies, mine is litter box trained and super clean, so she was welcomed too!

I write this review as I sit in an expensive and very nice hotel in Pensacola after checking out this morning. My room is nice, the bedding top notch, a fitness center, free breakfast, a pool... yet I miss my stay at the Cozy Cottage. If you want a fancy hotel with your dogs, get that. If you want a place where you feel like you could stay for weeks and it instantly feels like home, I suggest The Cozy Cottage.

West Palm Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this cottage, very pet friendly, very nice owner and wonderful buddy (the dog).

Nice garden area for your pets to relax in the sun.

Much better then a hotel - great location.

We enjoyed very much - we were there for 5 nights.

Our home for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are very happy with our stay here during the holidays! We felt right at home. The cottage is true old florida style with a very cozy and beautiful courtyard!! Grenville was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. The cottage is perfectly located in the historic districts with a lot of amenities near by. Cozy, clean and safe. We would definitely recommend this place and will be back when we're in town.

Not as Advertised

  • 2 of 5

Very disappointed. Hot tub did not work, pool had algae. Glad I did not bring my Jack Russell, the yard would not have contained her. In addition, the location is right in the flight path of Palm Beach Airport, and could hear the train horn as it went thru each intersection at night.

Owner's Response: The hot tub was not working when these guests arrived. I offered to have it repaired it immediately but unfortunately they decided to leave. I did not charge them for the balance of their reservation. Also, because the hot tub and heated pool are not consistently reliable, I have decided to stop offering this amenity to guests. As for algae in the pool, this is the first I heard of this! The pool is cleaned weekly and I have never seen algae in it. I warmly welcome guests' dogs and provide a garden and lawn surrounded by a picket fence so that pets can explore safely. No dog has escaped the yard yet, but perhaps it could happen with a tiny dog who fits between pickets. Please read my other reviews! All other guests report a very positive experience both for them and for their dogs.

Travel Nurse's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful West Palm Beach retreat from May - August 2016. I absolutely fell in love with South Florida thanks to Grenny and The Gang... I travel with my 5 year old Shitzu named Oreo. He absolutely had the best time hanging out with Buddy. The place was very safe and that's very important when traveling alone. I loved the upstairs apartment it had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The grounds are just as beautiful as the pictures. I can't wait to get back!!!
