CLEAN cozy cottage for a PERFECT family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have used VRBO numerous times in the past. This by far was our favorite find! Cozy home with all amenities you want including a kitchen so nice, we really didn't care to eat out;-) Days were spent checking out local beaches and Warren Dunes, nights sitting around the fire pit and playing games on the screened in porch. My brother and his girlfriend came down from Chicago for the weekend to join us and we had PLENTY of room! Already talking about another stay! Thank you so much, Chris. You really have a special place to offer!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with family for a week. Comfortable beds. Plenty of room to spread out. The screened in porch was perfect for a quiet breakfast. Really enjoyed relaxing around the fire at night. Three great beaches within a short distance (Cherry, Weko, and Warren Dunes). Would definitely come back again.

Cozy cottage on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights here with extended family (7 adults + 1 dog) and we were very comfortable with the accommodations. The owner was a pleasure to work with and maintains a gorgeous, clean, and well-appointed property that is even nicer than the pictures show! The cottage is located in a peaceful neighborhood just a short drive to the Warren Dunes State Park and several good restaurants. It was chilly during our stay so we didn't get to use the screened in porch or deck but we thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and wood-burning fireplace. I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay here.

Great place to celebrate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. It was just as beautiful as the pictures. They allowed us to bring our dogs. I will say that the beaches are not dog friendly around this area, so consider that before bringing your furry pals. The Warren dunes state park has a dog path, but they are not allowed on the actual beach portion. But it was a lovely place to just hang at, and if you have a larger group (we only had 4) there would be plenty of room for 10 people. There are a ton of different places to eat, and Whittaker woods golf course is 15 minutes away. And of course, plenty of wineries and breweries.

Reconnect with family & friends

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, tasteful and fully detail overlooked. Love the open concept floor plan, never felt crowded with extended family members. The bonus room was perfect for the young teens in our group - great use of space! Loved the fire pit, S'mores never tasted so good. EZ accessibility to Harbor Country and St. Joe attractions. We hope to return again.
