Cute and comfortable cottage in a relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! The cottage itself was adorable and very well appointed with a mix of antique furniture and modern appointments. The queen size bed was not only a stunning piece of furniture, but very, very comfortable. The in-room appliances such as the washer and dryer were a welcome addition after a long road trip. In short, this rental was a delight, and I wish our stay could have been longer.

Cozy, comfortable, quiet and serene

  • 5 of 5

The Shack in the Back is a a perfect little piece of serenity tucked under the trees of the Gulf Coast. We walked to the beach, shared the pier with a magnificent heron and took in the local, family friendly Mardi Gras parade. Truly restorative spot. Thanks Holly and Scott.

IN LOVE

  • 5 of 5

Can't say much more than.....PERFECT! The cottage itself and the décor are adorable. The setting is so peaceful it's like you're in the middle of nowhere; yet you are only one block from the beach and down the street from the historic district and all the action. We will be back!
