Affinity, a privately-owned cottage, is one of 29 cottages built in the development of Gulfside Cottages (2002). The location is excellent - just steps to the community pool and to the beach with no roads to cross. The beach is rated #1 by USA Today. Silver Sands Outlet Mall, grocery stores, drug stores, banks, ice cream shops, and restaurants are within walking distance.

The cottage is a cozy, two-story, single-family dwelling furnished with comfort in mind. The downstairs has the entrance, washer and dryer room, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, counter area with three stools, eating area with table and six chairs, a half bath, and the living area with two recliners, a sofa bed, and a television with VCR. Naturally, there is secured wireless Internet throughout.

The two bedrooms are upstairs, and each bedroom has its own bathroom and television. There is a queen-size bed in the front bedroom, and this bedroom has an outside porch. The master bedroom has a sleep number, king-size bed with an adjoining, enclosed sleeping porch (2 twin Murphy beds). The cottage is perfect for families. The cottage has three porches for pure relaxation, and there's parking in the front plus a covered carport. Individuals must be 25 years or older. Prefer families. No Smoking. Your family dog is welcome with prior approval for an additional $150, and your dog needs to be on a flea/tick program, beyond the chewing stage, and house broken.

Four beach towels, four beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a cooler on wheels are provided to ease your packing cares. There's a gas grill under the carport for cooking your family favorites. All of the comforts of home are provided for your ideal family vacation.

Beautiful, clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

This 2+-bedroom, 2.5 bath house was perfect for our family of 4. Next year, we will bring the inlaws because we had plenty of room. Sylvia, the owner, has everything you could want for a beach house. Beach toys, chairs, umbrella, cooler, washer/dryer, plenty of towels and blankets. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, a Keurig, toaster, blender, etc. We will definitely be booking here again. The location is perfect- near the beach and pool, and within a few minutes drive to grocery, restaurants, shopping, etc. Renting a house is definitely the way to go.

Don't hesitate to book this beautiful cottage....I can't express the attention to every detail that Sylvia puts forth. She thinks of every need you could possibly have. Beach chairs, cart, toys for small children.... etc.

She greets you on arrival and makes sure everything is ready for your time there. We were able to take our small dog and that was so nice. The place is well kept and I recommend highly!! !!
