About the property

Best of both worlds with beach directly across street and a lush oasis on ICW

As you will see from the reviews, the is a peaceful get away with the best of both worlds at your front and back door. The beach is directly across the street and your mornings and evenings are simply gorgeous as the property is located on the Intracoastal Water Way (ICW). Just across the ICW is Conch Key which is a Natural Reserve so there is nothing to disturb the peaceful view. there is no more perfect word to describe the look of the back yard besides "lush" which just adds to the peaceful setting. Guests always say that it is so much more beautiful than they expected! With two cottages to choose from, or both, you will enjoy sitting on the dock or lounging in the hammock as the various birds, otters, manatee and dolphin play in the water in right before your eyes. Pricing reflects JUST ONE of the cottages. The cottages are Pet Friendly and boat accessible. So please advise me of any pet(s) or if you plan on bringing or renting a boat in your inquiry as there is a nominal fee for pets and docking a boat. Just about everything is within walking distance. (see map) BBQ, Washer/Dryer, and hammock all provided make your stay even better.

There are two cottages known as cottage 1 or cottage 2. Descriptions of each cottage along with the pictures that are marked side #1 or #2 or both bdrms. Cottage #1 has one full size bed with carpeted bedroom floors The den has brand new tiled floors and a kitchen with a full size refrigerator, 4 burner stove top, microwave/exhaust and large toaster oven. It has a large bar top with stools in it's open concept entertaining/dining area. Cottage #2 is also one bedroom with a full size bed but has 2 baths! It has tiled floors and a full kitchen with an oven/stove, microwave and full size refrigerator. The bedrooms and main baths are the same size in both cottages and have sleeper sofas. New flat screen TVs in both cottages with cable and dual band WIFI. There is a dock for fishing, docking a boat or just enjoying with all the natural visitors we get! ((my other properties are listing #505747, 559948 and 853610 if this doesn’t happen to fit your needs. however no pets are allowed at these other properties.)

About Owner / Property Manager

I have been a VRBO customer from the rental side for years. So when I bought this property I knew what guests were looking for. No back aches with old beds or furniture. clean and open with direct access to the beach and boating.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Redington Shores

it simply has the best of boat and beach with privacy ! even the view across the Intercoastal Water way is private because there is a natural preserve across the water that will never be developed. The two cottages are under the same roof structure so a family could rent both which would provide the privacy and additional space for the adults while still having the children in the adjoining cottage. Again, the pricing reflects just one of the cottages so please request pricing for both.

What makes this cottage unique

waterfront, boat dock and the beach !

Property was perfect for our needs/wants. Bed comfy, everything clean. Excellent for a couples get away. Convenient location to beach, restaurants, shopping, fishing. Great nature watching, met Fred and Phyllis and watched an alligator swim right down the center of the ICW. VERY COOL! Quiet backyard/dock area and good parking. WOULD LOVE TO RETURN NEXT YEAR!!

GREAT place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The whole place was clean. It was spacious. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. I loved waking up and looking out over the water and I was just across the street from the beach. It was convenient to everything I needed and safe, accessible parking.

A lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely little place to get away for a weekend :) The cottage was well appointed, clean and cozy. All of the ammentities were as descibed, and everything was in in working order. The location was ideal for us; the ICW in the rear, and a short walk across the road was the Gulf. It was neat, clean, and the owner was very accomadating. There were many local food places within walking distance, and several shops and parks. The local people were also very polite. We really enjoyed the dock; it was perfect for watching the local nature, and enjoying a nice meal at the picnice table while watching the sunset. We were visited by the awesome Heron each evening, and a few other wild birds came by as well. I would recommend the cottage to anyone heading to Tampa or vicinity; it is close enough to the bigger city but removed enough so as not to be congested and loud.
