Greta has been on this beach since the mid-80's and Nigel since the late '90's. It's a great area - quiet and safe.

The property was completely remodeled a few years ago to the standard seen in the photos - the way we would like it if we lived here!

It's a short walk to the beach and a quiet and friendly neighborhood. The cottage is very nicely appointed and allows for a relaxing time.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to find the listing for the Zen Cottage and are very happy to say it is just as beautiful and comfortable as the pictures show! We spent 9 days in April 2014 and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is wonderful. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Anything we needed or had questions about the owners were very prompt in their response. The cottage is clean, cool and felt very safe while here. We hope to be able to come back one day for a stay and would recommend this location for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

My husband and I spent 11 days in this cottage and we could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. The furniture and appliances are all top of the line and the spa bath was as pictured. We found it to be a perfect location to get to everything we wanted to see and do. The landscaping was beautiful and well kept as was the cottage. It was very clean. I have never stayed anywhere where I felt as if the place was up to my standards but this one hit the mark! Nigel and Greta were warm and caring hosts and it was a pleasure to meet them. My husband even did his first sky dive with Nigel at Sarasota. He had the time of his life and we will be returning in the future!

Thanks to Nigel and Greta for a great getaway.
The cottage is well appointed and has everything you will need for a vacation getaway. The local beach is within easy walking distance and there lots to do in the area. Tampa is a short drive away with NFL and NHL teams, both have very nice stadiums.
St Petersburg has the Dali museum which I recommend you see during your stay and great shopping in Ellington. Loads to do in the area!!

My daughter completed her first skydive at Sarasota beach with Nigel and she loved it. Nigel went out of his way and rearranged his schedule to make that skydive possible.
So thanks again!
Cheers,
Paul

Amazing Cottage

The Zen Cottage was all and more than we expected. Nigel and Greta are wonderful and respond immediately to any questions or concerns. We enjoyed having the opportunity to talk with them. The cottage is beautifully appointed, fully equipped kitchen and very clean. A wonderful basket of goodies and snacks was waiting for us when we opened the door. We will be making this a frequent rental. Only 1 block over from a private beach (which you have access to with the cottage rental via passes). There is a small area on the beach that is rocky. It is roped between shore pile foundations and a numerous varieties of birds hang out there. The pelicans are quite comical as they try to balance on the ropes. Breathtaking beach. Thank you Nigel & Greta for a wonderful getaway. We hope we left a better impression of Christians than your previous experiences. Blessings to you. Ramona and Mark

Great Redington Shores Cottage

  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2013

Our family enjoyed every moment at the Zen Cottage over the Labor Day holiday. It was very well appointed throughout, almost giving the feeling that we were staying at a resort hotel. From kitchen conveniences such as condiments and K-cup coffee to bath convenience of soaps and plush towels, it was quite clear that Nigel and Greta seek to provide all the comforts of home to renters. They provided detailed information about the cottage, the neighborhood, and all aspects of life at the beach. The cottage was in walking distance to a lovely stretch of Redington Shores, as well as to the famed Candy Kitchen and Friendly Tavern (2 blocks away). The cottage was well decorated with Eastern and African type art, and the furniture was quite comfortable. We would strongly recommend the Zen Cottage for the mature and young, as well as families. And there certainly is the plus in that pets are allowed. It truly was like a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Excellent! Glad the weekend went well!
