The Down Home Beach Cottage was definitely COZY! I am so glad I chose the cottage for a week long vacation with my daughters. The cottage was very charming. Beds were very comfortable. Many of the "appliances" one has in their home were provided at the cottage. This made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. Additionally, the cottage was very well kept and clean.
Location wise, the Cottage is situated in between the historical Strand area, East and Stewart Beach and the Seawall Boulevard. This was perfect for planning outings to the different areas. There is an Arlands Grocery Store nearby and prices are in line, just in case you want to grocery shop when arriving. Instead of lugging groceries, like I did.
1. Sunflower Bakery and Cafe - Crab Cakes and Eggs is a must! Kids and kids at heart will enjoy the Chocolate Chip Pancakes--my daughter declared,"the best ever!"
2. For history buffs: The Bishop Palace. Take a trip back to Early-Glaveston and the crown jewel residence. Stunning architecture and history.
I look forward to returning in the near future.
