Very Relaxing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just make sure to bring your supplies with you, or if you prefer, you can drive to a local market. There are a few about a half hour from the cottage. The cottage was exactly as described, and clean! Loved the layout, and all the windows facing the Gulf! Loved the raised platform with chairs, sat up there with our morning coffee, tried to at night, but there were little gnats (sure it's just the season). But still enjoyed the hot tub at night and was very relaxing after driving for two days to get there! The beach was such a wonderful place, we a lot of times were the only ones there! Our little dog pal Loved it!! Watched all kinds of wildlife and went for rides around the area. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your cottage, it is a wonderful place to be! Owner was very accommodating, and very quick to respond to questions. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone with pets, or to get away from everything and RELAX!!

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This cottage in Alligator Point was the most beautiful, relaxing place we have ever stayed at. Sitting on the raised deck watching the Pelicans fly by and the Dolphins swim by was wonderful. Walking along the quiet unpopulated beach was heavenly. Never have I stayed at a place that was so filled with the beauty of nature. Bring supplies when you come because once you get there you won't want to leave! Although it is worth the drive to visit Apalachiocola and St. George Island. The inside of the cottage is beachy and comfortable. The pictures do not do justice to the wonder of the place. The bed is very comfortable as well. If you choose this place for a romantic getaway you won't be disappointed. It was the perfect place for us and our little dog to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy each other's company.

serenely secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Just as described in the listing this old Florida cottage was clean, comfortable and quiet! Anyone in need of a quiet get away should consider this charmer. With a beautiful beach just steps away be prepared for a relaxing respite from the toils of daily life. I enjoyed visiting the local lighthouses and refuges as well as the quiet drumming of the surf outside the door. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to get away and relax!

The closest hotel is miles away and one would have to drive 20 minutes to find any serious shopping but there is plenty of nature around you and the history of the "forgotten coast". The locals love it here and you will too!

We love this place!!

  • 5 of 5

In a word- Perfect! Everything was wonderful. The house was a bit bigger than expected, pictures never tell the whole story. The upper deck was wonderful to watch the beach. This was perfect for our German Shepard dog Greta Garbo, who had never been to the beach before! The hot tub was magnificent! The kitchen was wonderfully equipped, even had an iron skillet for me to make cornbread on new years day!! Such a wonderful, relaxing, quiet, time after the holidays.... Oh yeah, the dolphins came by every day, twice a day, just 5 feet off the beach-amazing! Bid Daddy's has a wonderful pizza and salad that delivers right to your door!!

Loved the house, the beach and the weather and the hot tub. Loved the local restaurants. A little desolate. Had a great week.
