Owners Tom & Jan, enjoy coming to their unit at Beach Cottages several times a years. It a home away from home.
On this same property there used to be a motel called the 'Gulf Lane', which my family started coming to in the mid 1960's. We've been to other areas in Florida, but when we decided to purchase a condo for ourselves, we wanted to be in an area that had plenty of things to do. Not only for us but for our children and grandchildren. We love the area and it proximity to major attractions. Orlando is less than 2 hours away.
We like to think that we are a cut above the competition and worth the extra. We supply toilet paper, trash bags, paper towel, dish soap, laundry supplies, hair dryer, beach towels, toaster, full set of pots & pans, mixer, bicycles, etc. This is our second home and we have it decorated and stocked it for ourselves, not the bare minimum for tenants as many places do.
