Nice Beach House
This beachy cottage is very charming and decorated very nicely. The kitchen is outfitted with everything imaginable for cooking. The beds and the furniture in general was very cozy. We had a couple of minor problems in the beginning but they were taken care of very quickly.
My kids loved the pool, kayaking in the ocean, hunting for shells, and bicycling around the island in the evenings. We all enjoyed having our meals on the porch every day. It has a very tropical feel, as does the entire island. We did a boat tour, ate at the local restaurants, and shopped a little at the little store on the island.
Some of the toys and the bicycles were not in great shape, but some were and we took turns. The downstairs room off of the pool area is secluded from the house and the kids were a little afraid to stay down there, but Pat was very accommodating and offered us a blow up mattress for upstairs. The gates were hard to keep closed and difficult to latch also, but overall it was a really fun and magical beach experience.
Loved the Shell Cottage
We enjoyed everything about this place! Booked less than two weeks out and were able to get a "June discount" which really helped on the price. The house was completely equipped with anything we could possibly need. We especially enjoyed the golf cart, beach chairs & umbrellas and kayaks. We saw dolphins daily, kayaked near them, and ended each day at the beach watching the sunset. This was such a relaxing vacation (first without kids!) where we read a lot of books, swam in the pool, hung out at the beach, took naps, ate dinner on the porch each night, went for ice cream and did whatever we wanted. Thanks to Pat & Tom for sharing their lovely home!
The perfect Island Getaway
We loved Shell Cottage a perfect blend of old Florida character in combination with modern updates and conveniences. The perfect setting for an island adventure. Pat and Tom are excellent hosts and did everything to ensure we had just what we needed, even an extra toothbrush. The house is perfectly equipped for a family and the kitchen has everything you need for "real" cooking. The outside living space was my vacation haven. Engulfed in native island flora with bursts of brilliant tropical color surrounding you. A porch and deck full of seating and a quirky shaped pool is the perfect finishing touch to this outside oasis. The only recommendation to future guests we can give is to consider bringing easy to carry beach chairs. The house's chairs are great traditional wooden beach chairs; but, get heavy carrying back and forth from the beach. We loved this property and hope to come back next year!
We had a wonderful stay on North Cap!
My girls loved the heated pool out back! We spent the mornings on the porch drinking coffee and enjoying all the sounds of the birds.
The house was very well stocked, the owners were great! The highlight was the golf cart and eating ice cream at Barnicles!
Highly recommend this house for a great getaway!
What a Great Property!
Thank you so much to Pat for sharing your home, it was the perfect spot for my husband and 2 year old daughter. It had everything we needed, and then some. We really hope to be back sometime!
Quaint Cozy Cottage
My husband and I celebrated our 23rd Anniversary at Shell Cottage. We were there for 2 weeks and absolutely loved it. We did NOT want to leave. We were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and we could not have made a more perfect choice in our vacation destination. The house is super cute and well decorated with all the necessities included. I was even able to make cup cakes while I was there. The master bed was very comfortable and I loved laying on the couch or sitting outside reading. The pool was the perfect temp for me (87)...my husband likes it’s cold since he’s a polar bear, but he “suffered” for me. ;-) We enjoyed taking the golf cart out to explore, walking the beach and we even hiked thru the preserve to the south beach. We ate at Mangos, picked up some necessities in the general store and shopped for our touristy gifts in the shop before we left. We will definitely be returning next year! Thanks Pat!
