We just stayed at cottage for week end Dec, beginning Jan. We travelled down from Ontario with our golden doodle, long drive but was soon forgotten with the delightful cottage which has everything you need. It is steps from the quiet private beach which makes it very easy to go back and to as needed. Scott and Ryan were very helpful and informative about area, restaurants etc. Gorgeous gardens surround it to just sit and relax. Perfect for couples. Will definitely return there and highly recommend it.

Loved this place. Traveling as family of four w/ our two pre-teen kids. What I didn't want was a mega chain hotel on a crowded beach, nothing to do but swim in a pool or lay on the beach. I wanted my kids to experience a place more in keeping with old Florida charm...but with access to the modern "toys" that allow you to explore the beauty of the intracoastal waterways et al. This place hit the mark. Quaint old Florida charm yet all the comfy perks of modern-day conveniences inside. Toy inventory was plentiful. Made good use of all. Only additional thing I wish there had been were fishing poles (as those don't travel easily on planes). As for our unit: Very nice and well appointed (as they say on real estate shows) . Furniture all very comfortable, oodles of high quality beach towels and a very nice gift to visitors from owners (I won't give away the surprise but very thoughtful and practical). My kids thrilled to have a full-size bunk. I was thrilled kitchen was amply stocked. Additionally, each room had very attractive artwork in keeping with the décor of the unit. I wondered if the pieces were all by local artists. Suffice to say, a lot of thought and consideration has gone into every last detail in making these units a pleasing place to call your home away from home.... so much so, I really did not want to go home. The biggest surprise hit with the kids was the outdoor showers (I knew I would like, but kids surprised me). They were enthralled with this outdoor shower concept and couldn't wait to shower....multiple times a day (imagine that!) They asked incessantly if we could build outdoor showers at home. (We live in Ohio where it is STILL snowing in mid-April!?!?! Not exactly practical).
If you like the busy beach scene and hotel rooms, this may not be your thing. But if you want what is unique and special about Florida, treat yourself. Take a kayak out on the bayside and hang out with the numerous dolphins all day. They promise not to lecture you or judge you by your politics; they won't even bring it up in conversation.
Ahhh..... peace and tranquility found in Lemon Bay.........
