Redington Shores Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Come enjoy a beautiful piece of 'Old Florida'. Our delightful beach cottage is just the way Florida beach life used to be! Quaint and quiet. Just steps from the beach, our cottage is YOUR ideal spot for a week's getaway or even months of fun in the Florida Sun.

THE BEACH COTTAGE is located in a quiet neighborhood setting, yet close to many of Florida's West Coast attractions, such as John's Pass, Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, Lowry Park Zoo, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Weeki Wachee Springs, Walt Disney World and much more!

Walk to many quaint restaurants or stroll down the beach and have dinner. Local restaurants within walking distance include Seabreeze Island Grill, Lobster Pot, Kenny's, and many more. A local seafood market just blocks away provides a variety of seafood choices for your entertaining and dining enjoyment!

Enjoy beautiful sunsets and quiet morning walks on the beach, or just sit on your screened-in front porch and sip on your favorite beverage. You'll enjoy the fenced in backyard that provides your own private oasis after a day on the beach...including an enclosed outdoor shower!

Our newly renovated kitchen provides all you need for entertaining and enjoying meals at home. We have tried to add today's conveniences, without changing all the charm of the original Florida Beach Cottages that once lined our Gulf Shores.

We invite you to visit the West coast of Florida and experience our beach cottage for a relaxing beach vacation!

Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
Back for our fifth year in a row to our "Home Away from Home". The cottage has once again been updated with new patio furniture, umbrellas and beach umbrellas to make the lounging in the oasis of a backyard even more relaxing. New interior furniture, lamps and table as well.

We spent a lot more time indoors this year as the weather was just very similar to 2010. We appreciated the good heating system and only were able to open the windows a few times throughout our stay. Complete change from the weather last year when we had the windows open throughout our stay and never had the heat on once.

We continue to love our walks on the beautiful beach or relaxing on the front lanai, Sue's favourite spot.

We will be back again for our sixth visit next year and know the weather will be back to normal.

My Vacation on Memory Lane

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 21, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
This cottage was a beautiful sweet memory as a child in the 1960's. I was so happy to see it return to the vacation rental market and in such lovely condition. I am a native Floridian but most of my best vacation memories are ones in the Tampa Bay area so I regularly stay "home". There's no better beaches anywhere! This vacation cottage is equipped like no other I've ever stayed. Bring your iThingies if you want to enjoy your own tunes. That's it! When not enjoying the beach, the back deck and front porch elevated relaxing to a fine art. Stella enjoyed lizard hunting in the back yard. Naturally, the beach was beautiful, easily accessible, and not crowded. Upon the recommendation of ealier reviewers, we walked across the street to The Reef for fresh seafood to cook/grill. Fabulous! I do recommend Beverly's for breakfast and enjoyed cruising the Corey shopping area and John's Pass too. It's a short drive down the beach, but worth the time. I recommend the fresh croissant french toast and the baked omelette at Beverly's. Thanks for making everything so easy Debra! We'll be back for girls week at the beach in 2013! The only thing I'll bring from home is the ice cream maker!

The best kept secret on the Redington Shores Beach

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
We are back again for our fourth year in a row to our "home away from home". Once again new improvements make this cottage one of the best on the beach. New instant hot water heating, new heat pump, new indoor and outdoor furniture are just a few of the changes from last year. It is great to see an owner continue to make a great property even better each year. The fenced-in backyard continues to provide protection for our dog and is a great area to soak up the sun on a breezy day when the beach is too cool or windy. The lanai continues to be one of Sue’s favourite areas to relax, read and take in some filtered sun. Your continued efforts to make this cottage such a gem on the beach makes us look forward each year to returning to soak up the sun, walk the beach and enjoy the wonderful local restaurants and stores that we frequent on an almost daily basis. The weather this year has been simply amazing, with cool evenings to get a wonderful sleep combined with 80 degrees days most of February and March. The ability to open the windows and make use of the screens is wonderful. We have yet to cool off the cottage with the new air conditioning system although a few cool nights required the heat pump to be used in February. If you want to get great value for your money you can’t go wrong with the Beach Cottage on Redington Shores, one of the best kept secrets in the area.

We love Beach Cottage

Our 2nd stay at Beach Cottage was even better than the 1st. The new kitchen, well laid out with plenty of storage space and good appliances, comes with a delightful breeze passing through while doing food prep ! As the weather was most cooperative, the backyard was used on many occasions, for dining, for grilling, for lounging, for reading, for enjoying the radio (even has Canadian Content) The cottage is well maintained and managed with attention to detail and its location is ideal in a very pleasant neighbourhood a stone's throw from the beach. We strolled along the beach to Bad Ass Cafe for muffins, sandwiches and coffee on several occasions, enjoyed dinner at Gulf Bistro, French restaurant run by a charming couple from France, went for evening walks for icecream at the Candy Factory, even the folks at the 711 were welcoming. The Reef fish store provided the ingredients for several delicious dinners. Took the trolley bus to various places along the route and often walked the beach back home. We truly appreciate being able to spend some time at Beach Cottage and thank everyone who makes our stay possible, especially Aunt Mary !

We are so glad you enjoyed your 'first' month long stay in Florida!! It's so nice to hear how you spent your time, as many future guests will no doubt 'follow in your footsteps' to enjoy their vacation. We truly hope that you will be able to return year after year for a little break from the Nova Scotia Winter and lots of Florida Sunshine!! Our repeat guests and their comments speak volumes to our future guests, thank you! Until next year, take care and be safe!

Wonderful Stay at Delightful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 5, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
My family had a great vacation at this quaint and charming beach cottage. It was a pleasant experience from beginning to end. The family/owners are friendly and accommodating. They made everything super easy and all went smoothly from the reservation process to the follow-up after our stay. The cottage has very nice upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need - we did a lot of cooking and we found every pan, pot and utensil we needed. The king size bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. We enjoyed the screened front porch (a nice place to have a glass of wine and read a good book) and the relaxing backyard oasis. Wonderful sitting areas in the back - made better by a grill, large umbrellas, twinkle lights, outdoor speaker for music and shaded pergola. The outdoor shower was enjoyable when returning from an afternoon at the beach. The house is small but never felt that way - it felt wonderfully cozy and my family had plenty of space. The Redington Shores area is really nice and the cottage is in a great little neighborhood environment and conveniently located to many local eateries and attractions. There is a fresh fish market within walking distance - nice selection of delicious seafood with a very friendly and helpful staff. The beach is a short stroll from the cottage - easy to go back and forth for lunch, etc - and perfect to walk down and catch one of many beautiful sunsets. We did not want to leave our little home away from home and are already talking about going back to stay again and again.

Beach Cottage - Outdoor Oasis

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 16, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Our family enjoyed are stay at the cottage. My daughter has her friend stay over a couple of nights and the place sleeps four comfortably. The beach is just 25 yards away. The fireworks on the beach for July 4th were amazing. You can see multiple cities from the beach. Great show for hours. Kenny's Corner is walking distant for a good breakfast at a great price. There are other restaurants within walking distance and quite a few within a couple of miles. We drove to Disney World for the day and it was an easy drive to make (1.5 hours).

Our favorite part of this house is the outside oasis. We enjoyed the outdoor shower, the party lights, the grill area, and the large deck. Add a hammock and you would have the perfect outdoor area.

You can tell the owners of this house care about there renters. We will definitely visit and stay here again.

A wonderful vacation on Coral Avenue

My husband and I truly enjoyed our two week stay at our little bit of Paradise in Florida. I must say the front screened in porch and the perfect private backyard were the highlights of our stay in this sweet cottage VERY near the beach. We found it very comfortable for the two of us and the spare bedroom would be suitable for a young child. The newly renovated kitchen is A1 and I didn't mind cooking at all! The BBQ in the backyard got alot of use and my husband LOVED the big screen TV. We would have booked for 2012 but it was already taken for the month we were interested and YES we would go back again!! Thanks Debra for the wonderful time!!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 8, 2011
  • Stayed: Feb 2011
We are back again for our third year in a row to our "home away from home". We arrived to be blown away by even more improvements from last year. A completely new kitchen, including new floor, counter tops, cupboards, sink ( that now looks out over the backyard ), microwave, stove, fridge ( with ice maker ), new slow cooker, coffee maker etc. etc. and plenty of storage space to hold all our goodies. Sue was so pleased with the new look. It was great to watch the Super Bowl game on a new flat screen TV that made the viewing all the more exciting. New lounge chairs on the back patio, new umbrellas, privacy screens for the outdoor dining area, some new patio area ( but still enough green for the dog ), new mirrored walls in the living room, a new headboard in the master, a new floor in the linai along with some decor changes have made the "beach cottage" even better than ever.

It is great to see an owner take pride in providing yearly upgrades on such a fabulous property. Thanks so much Debra, Mike and Diana for all your work. We know Mary must be very proud of your efforts. Everyone we have had over in our first week are amazed at the quality workmanship that has gone in to making this one of the best properties near the beach. The fenced-in backyard continues to provide protection for our dog and cat. They love the freedom to come and go when they need to.

We hope to make this wonderful property our "home away from home" for many years to come. Your efforts to provide a homey feel to the cottage that fits with its original style is greatly appreciated. The beach cottage will provide you with all you will ever need in a great location near plenty of restaurants and a fabulous beach. We look forward to some warmer weather where we can enjoy the back patio more along with the fabulous beach walks, sunsets and sunbathing.

What a joy to be back.

The Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 6, 2010
  • Stayed: Nov 2010
The Beach Cottage is wonderful. You are very close to the beach. The neighborhood is very nice and friendly. The online pictures do not do the cottage justice. I am originally from Florida and this is a dream spot. The backyard is fantastic. We had a birthday cookout/party for my husband and there was plenty of room. The way it is set up is great. We highly recommend this cottage and are looking forward to returning. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.

We are back, and happy to be here in our beach cottage "home away from home." Many new improvements have been made since our visit last year to make our stay this year even more pleasant. The new decor additions, including new fans, painting and screens have all made for a great stay. Sue especially likes the improved television service and WiFi that have allowed us to talk each week to our children using Skype. We know you will enjoy this superb rental if you choose to make it your destination of choice. We are looking forward to enjoying the beach as the weather gets warmer. We have made excellent use of the many great restaurants that are so close to the cottage. If you choose to make this a "home away from home" you will not be disappointed.
