Relaxing weekend by the bay
Although we only had three nights and two full days in this little Cottage by the Bay, my husband and I and our two dogs had such a relaxing time, we commented that it seemed like we had been there longer. We loved the huge screened porch, the comfortable furnishings, and the waterfront, especially the private little beach where we could dip our toes in the water and enjoy the sound of the waves. The whippoorwill sang a song at sunset that took me back to my childhood in the Florida Panhandle. We stayed close to home, only venturing out for steamed shrimp at the seafood market down the road. We don't love crowds, and this cottage gave us the solitude we needed. We'll definitely be back!
Was a great house in a great location!! Hopefully will go back!!
Relaxing and refreshing
The Little House By the Bay was a wonderful place for us and our dogs. We absolutely loved it. It was close enough to everything we wanted to do but far enough away to feel secluded. We loved fishing every morning from the dock. The dogs loved lounging in the screened in porch. The house was appointed with everything we needed to fix breakfast and lunch everyday of our visit (we ate out for dinner every night). Can’t wait to visit again. Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven.
Excellent private getaway
We enjoyed our vacation at this little piece of property. It was private and relaxing and was everything we was hoping for. A short drive to the hustle and bustle of the city. We appreciate you sharing this property with us and look forward to coming back sometime.
Whats Not to Love About Staying on the Water
Cottage by the bay was perfect for our stay, out of the hustle and bustle but close enough to easily get groceries or go to a restaurant. Nice grassy yard for the pups and plenty of privacy from neighbors. Kicthen has all the pots/pans/utensils you need if you want to cook in. Overall, 5 out of 5 stars.
Adjacent to Bon Secour National Wildlife Reserve, and just a few minutes drive or a short bike ride to Gulf Beaches!
