1 bedroom cottage, sleeps 3, right on the beach.

Charming, bright and sunny, this rustic, down-to-earth cottage is located RIGHT ON THE BEACH, just steps from the water. Enjoy the million dollar views and watch the dolphins play from your living room window! Outside, relax on your own, private beach. This is not a highly polished luxury property. Our style is more rustic and casual, so you'll feel right at home.

Be enchanted with this island where there are no high rises, no traffic lights and no crowds. A two lane road runs the length of the island with pristine beaches on the west side and Lemon Bay on the east side.

We are just steps from Stump Pass state park and wildlife sanctuary where you will discover a pristine, uninhabited shoreline. Shops, restaurants and boat rentals within walking distance. Grocery shopping, golf, and more restaurants all just a short drive away.

                                                        SPRING BREAK!

                                                        allen b.

                                                        Thank you for sharing your lovely bungalow. The location on the beach was perfect. There are twin beds but we pushed them together and slept well every night. We cooked most meals (grocery store was close-by) and tried the local night life. We enjoyed our house-mates in the other 2 units and never felt like we got in each others way.

                                                        The sunsets and, if you get up early enough, moonsets were wonderful.

                                                        I would highly recommend this property.

                                                        Great home away from home. Location and being right on beach is super.

                                                        Shirley P.

                                                        Nice property. Needs a little tlc...new mattresses and bar stools would be good. Coffee pot could be replaced and a few throw rugs would be nice. Appliances are great and outside furniture super. On the whole this is a fantastic place to be. Our dogs loved it also.

                                                        Million Dollar View & Great Stay!

                                                        Ashleigh S.Winchester, KY

                                                        Not only does this lovely cottage provide a million dollar view, the cottage itself is exactly like the pictures show; comfy, clean, and beautiful. As for the views; the pictures don’t even do the magnificent beauty justice. It was like staying in paradise for a week. The only downside to this stay was that I had to leave and go back to the cold at my own house. If you’re debating on staying here, take my advice, STAY! You DEFINETLY won’t regret it! The owners are very friendly and caring as well. They aim to please, and they succeed. I HIGHLY recommend thier beautiful cottage!

                                                        Loving' life ON the beach

                                                        Barbara S.

                                                        Rustic beach cottage was perfect for a one-week stay. There's not much in life better than waking up to the sound of waves washing against the shore, watching sanderlings run along the waterline and pelicans dive-bomb into the Gulf. We enjoyed basking in the sun during the day and seeing gorgeous sunsets at night. All steps from our door. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. While we did fight with the shower curtain in the small shower stall, it was a minor hardship. Most of the time we were outdoors. We fly fished off the beach, looked for sharks teeth among the many shells and went kayaking from the state park, a 3-min. walk away. If you don't need luxury and like a casual lifestyle, this is the place to be.

                                                        Picture perfect only better!!!

                                                        Deb D.

                                                        Our stay was magnificent!! We had the added bonus of beautiful weather and calm seas. The proximity of the door to the shoreline is beyond compare.. Next time we are contemplating more than just a one week stay. This location and home have restored our sanity.

                                                        Exactly as promised!!!

                                                        Amber C.Enid, Oklahoma

                                                        I can only say positive things about this wonderful beach house! The pictures DO NOT LIE!! You literally walk out the front door onto the beach, which is clean and full of shells and shark teeth. The house itself was GREAT!, very very clean, and had all the amenities that you could possibly want in the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable, and the stocked towels, including beach towels were a plus. I was a little concerned about having units above and next door, which were rented out, but that turned out to be a moot point, as it was very quiet and we felt like we had the house and beach to ourselves. The only negative I can possibly think of is that we had to leave. We have already and booked the same unit for next April, and have a countdown on our phones. The owner was very easy to work with and responded very promptly. Thanks Sally for very and much needed vacation for these 2 work stressed Texans!
