Fishing Cottage Features 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath With Stunning Views.
About Pamela Hill
I enjoy the "old" Florida lifestyle and being close to the water so much so I wanted to make it available to others to enjoy.
Pamela Hill purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Pamela Hill chose Sebastian
I love the old Florida feel of this property, so quiet and peaceful, the fishing is great too! I want to preserve these areas as they are some of the last Florida has to offer. You will not find a more perfect representation of what Florida means to so many of its natives.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is unique because it is very secluded, you wouldn't know that you are minutes away from everything Sebastian has to offer.

Arrived on a dirt road to find the "cabin" actually a duplex. Had overflowing garbage can, totally filthy grill, minimal channels on TV, broken down furniture. Other than that, George, the caretaker, was terrific and the owner, Bill, most accommodating. Can recommend these two for helpfulness, but not the cabin. Would not book it again.
Dave... We are shocked at this review, it is in no way consistent with the other reviews or guest experiences. However, we will address each of your comments to help future guests understand that we are caring, honest hosts that take pride in what we do and guest comfort very seriously. The cottage is a riverfront fishing cottage and yes it is at the end of a dirt road that opens up to the Sebastian River. It is listed as a duplex in the description and we blessed to have a long term guest residing in the next door unit. He has been there for several years. The garbage, the garbage was at the curb for pick up the morning of your arrival. The grill and the broken patio chair (furniture) were an oversight and corrected the moment you pointed it out and we regret this was not corrected prior to your arrival. The television stations, we find having a basic cable along with a Netflix and other ala carte services is reasonable given the view and other options for entertainment. We are a fishing cottage, it is listed this way and we boast some of the best fishing on the east coast of Florida. It seems that was where things went wrong, this is not what you and your wife planned. What is so surprising about your review, is that you failed to mention you didn't stay at this cottage, not one night. This is because we were able to move you to another cottage on the Indian River in Micco. You seemed very pleased with this choice, so much so you passed your business card to Tom in hopes of doing business and told him "now this is what we had in mind". In the end, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to enjoy your vacation in another of our cottages.
Summer vacation for our family
Property was very clean upon our arrival. Location was great for dining and fishing. The cottage is not stand alone, it's actually a duplex. The air conditioning could not keep up with the heat, we purchased two fans to make it comfortable.
We are pleased that you found the cottage clean and enjoyed your stay. The cottage is listed as a duplex, I regret that this detail was overlooked, we will adjust the listing to make sure it is more prominent. Additionally, the air conditioning is a new unit. It has been unseasonably warm. It is a small cottage, with two medium sized dogs, two adults, and a child staying in the cottage, we may have needed to provide additional relief during your stay. Had we been made aware you were uncomfortable we would have done whatever was needed. We truly make every effort to insure our guest’s comfort. Thank you again for visiting.
This is a delightful little cabin if you need to decompress from any problems in your life. It is QUIET AND PEACEFUL. We are two seniors and the only problem that was a bit difficult for us was the steps off the deck (no railings), and steps entering the cabin. If you have balance issues, use a cane, its a bit hard to maneuver, you have to plan your exits and entrances with extreme cautionm as surrounding area is stones and small rocks. A ramp might be suggested to owner, at least by front door. Also, air conditioning cools only front roon & kitchen. Suggest a fan be added in bedroom. Around 3:30 am, each day it feels quite uncomfortably warm, that stuffy feeling.
Overall, it was so relaxing, far beats going to a hotel. The river view was sublime, that campout nature feeling!!!!
Great cottage on the Sebastian River!
We had a wonderful stay at this property. Pam the property manage was quick at responding to all our questions before our stay. The cottage was tastefully decorated and very clean. The location was ideal for a great boating weekend. Close to the Sebastian inlet for fishing and a short ride to waterfront restaurants. Old Florida Bar and Grill was a favorite spot to eat. The owner Tom shares the property and went out of his way to ensure we had an amazing stay.
Old Florida style, Quiet, Beautiful views of river! We had a great time as did our granddaughter. George, (the caretaker) greeted us upon our arrival and could not have been nicer. We also met Tom (the owner) who is a wonderful guy. Restaurants and grocery store are close by. You have to eat at The Fish House, delicious food. We will definitely be back! Thanks for a wonderful week
very quiet and peaceful
nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Great view of the river, but still convenient to stores and restaurants. Owner and staff were friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return!
