Availability Note: Please understand that we block out dates that are more than 51 weeks into the future. We do this to be loyal to our repeat guests and give them the first chance to book their same week again next year. If a guest chooses not to re-book we then re-open those dates to anyone about 51 weeks in advance. So if you see a time more than a year from now that is currently shown as not available, please check back and that week may open up.
Pet Friendly! Located on one of the more tree-canopied streets on the island, our home will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway you have been looking for. The live oaks that cover this area give you the feeling like you are in your own world. Once you park your car under the carport in the back, you may not need to use it again during your stay.
We are in a convenient location at the south end of the island, just about a 10-minute (0.4 mile) walk to the beach and 15-minute (0.7 mile) walk to the village. We are also centrally located to many great restaurants and fun activities for the whole family to discover. Cummings Lane is a very cozy, quiet, and peaceful location. It is only one block long with more people walking than driving. The trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.
The open style floor plan and outdoor porches provide for very comfortable living. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom and can be considered to be their own suite. Amenities include cable TV, wireless internet access, a large hot/cold outdoor shower, large back deck, fully-equipped kitchen, and more.
Since 2013, we have spent every winter at the cottage and each time we have made improvements that we hope you enjoy as much as we do. Over the years we have replaced carpeting with wood flooring, built a large backyard deck with an amazing outdoor hot water shower, landscaped with many tropical plants and fruit trees (which we hope will actually have fruit one day), added fencing to fully enclose the backyard, purchased comfortable deck furniture and living room furniture, in addition to replacing the roof and the heat/air conditioning system.
We strive to provide a cottage that is comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. However, another goal is to provide an exceptionally well-maintained home and since this is our home for five months every year we are able to do this. Many other vacation homes are never really lived in by their owners, as ours is, and we think that makes a real difference. Because we actually live at the cottage for an extended period of time, we are able to offer a rental cottage that it is much more likely to provide you with that perfect stay.
If you choose to vacation at our cottage, it will feel like your home too. Who knows what changes we will make next year, but we hope you come back often to find out!
The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway and so we provide all the basic essentials we could think of. In addition to typical items like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and tissues we also provide plastic wrap and bags, laundry supplies, hand soap, dishwasher soap, coffee filters, spices, and beach towels and cart. There is even a small cooler with those blue ice things in the freezer ready for you first day on the beach. Our overall philosophy is to have you arrive at a home that has what you need without having to immediately run out to Winn-Dixie. Yes, you will need to get food, but at least that can wait until you have had a good night’s sleep and your morning coffee…you will even find a packet of coffee for your first morning in the cottage. We really have everything you need!
We have had the best guests and are excited about continuing to share our home as a vacation rental that is both warm and inviting. We will make every effort to provide you with a comfortable home away from home, great service when needed, and an overall ideal vacation experience.
If you have more than 4-6 people, we are happy to work with our next door neighbor (vrbo 96191) to try to accommodate a larger group.
