You drive down a 1400 foot long paved driveway past a heavily forested area protecting you from any noise of the highway;

There you arrive at a 2 story cedar cypress and stone guest cottage aprox.1200 sq, feet of air condition space with 2 large porches overlooking the Indian river Lagoon

Sleeps 4 with one and a half baths. Large kitchen and dinning area

Excellent fishing right in front.. Close to shopping and a medical center. There is a large pond in front with wild ducks making it their home. Peacocks roam the grounds and seem to ignore the people.

About Robert Taylor

I am a retired executive who spends most of my time abroad.

Not by choice but because my wife has been unable to get a visa to come to the USA. I guess it is because she is a retired doctor and not someone who would be a burden on this country as most who are allowed to come.

Robert Taylor purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Robert Taylor chose Sebastian

I have lived in Florida all my life. I am from an area of Miami called Coconut Grove. In 1992 I decided to find a property that reminded me of old Florida as my home in the Coconut Grove did.

Things change and the peace and serenity where gone. with high property taxes and crime replacing them.

I searched up and down the coast until I found Sebastian and this magnificent natural setting. I purchased it the day I first saw it in December of 1992 and moved in in 1993.

What makes this cottage unique

I have never thought of leasing out the guest cottage but it seems a shame not to let others enjoy this magnificent property with the peace and serenity it offers.

This is something I have decided to do just before Christmas of 2012.

Very Nice Cottage - Great View

  • 4 of 5
This is a pretty cottage with beautiful views of the river. We spotted dolphins swimming in the river, bunnies hop across the driveway and a handsome peacock is strutting around next door.

Our stay here was great - beds are comfortable and nicely turned out. They are in one common room downstairs, but that is often the case (I have found) with river cottages, and there is a partial wall between them so you don't wake up staring at each-other. Nice big bathroom with plenty of towels and good hot water and pressure. We spent our day with family, then came home to look out over the river, listen to frogs chirping (croaking?) and have a glass of wine before a good night's sleep. There is a small fridge and a freezer, and a good supply of plates, glasses, etc - although we didn't cook we certainly could have.

We will rent this place again next time. And to the previous reviewer - ALL of the water in this part of Florida is stinky and everyone drinks bottled.

wonderful location but property needs updating/tlc

  • 2 of 5
This location could not be beat. But the facility needs a lot of help. The out area is essentially a jungle, needs a lot of tlc. The house is on two levels. You enter the bedroom from down stairs, the living room, kitchen is upstairs with another entrance. The decks are in need of replacement, they are very old, rotted and not safe. The upstairs deck was falling apart (tiles coming up) and not safe. The interior stairs were a small metal spiral staircase, difficult to navigate. The only working T.V. was downstairs in the bedroom. It was not working when we arrived, but was fixed later that day. There is no door between the bedrooms, essentially only one large room with two beds. The water was very stinky, we had to buy bottled water. The sliding door from the bedroom to the deck would only open about 12 inches, difficult to get through. The blinds were in need of replacement. All the furnishings were very old and well used. One of the dining chairs fell apart when moved. There was no microwave. The refrigerator was tiny, extremely old, under a counter with no freezer/ice making ability. More like a beverage keeper. The glasses from the cupboard were filmy and did not cleanup when washed. All the glasses and dishes looked like left overs from the past (all mismatched) that were gathered up. The pool looked very nice, however there was no seating. The lounge chairs had no cushions and the chairs to the table were very rusty. The only seating on the decks were hard wood built in benches. The people who were house sitting were very nice and tried to be helpful. We would never stay here again and felt it was not a good value. We were very disappointed. We felt that this place is not ready to be rented.

Owner's Response: These people were nothing but trouble.
To answer their unfair and false discription of the property would be a waste of time.
I would never rent to them again. they paid less than half of the prime season rental.
A storm damaged one of the decks the day before they arrived which was redone as soon as I was notified
