Florida Central Gulf Coast Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 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 fresh 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!

We are excited to unveil our recent renovations to our guests! All new furnishings, TVs and updated design! Our 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 know you will still enjoy our quaint original Florida Beach Cottage, especially with all the upgrades!

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Best beach getaway..

  • 5 of 5

We vacation in Redington every couple of years and this is always out first choice of places to stay. We have stayed here 4 times and love the short distance to an almost private beach. The owners continue to improve the beach house and there are always updates on every visit. The owner really care about your satisfaction. All you need is your suits, sunscreen, and food. Everything else is provided by the owners to have an exceptional beach vacation.

4 weeks in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never taken a month long vacation, but we decided to "take the plunge" last year (3/2/2015). After we arrived at the Cottage, I did not want the experience to end! "The Cottage" was an amazing break to just relax and let life happen in an atmosphere of home. The cottage itself is welcoming and Natalie made everything as "home like" without the stress as possible. The beach sunsets were stunning. We never ran out of things to do or places to go. We will be back next year!! Thank you for making our stay a memorable one! We have been blessed!!

Cozy Cottage

We just returned from a month at "The Cottage." It was everything they advertised. The cottage is charming, very clean, has everything you need, and sooo... close to the beach. We enjoyed our stay!

Lucky Us !

  • 5 of 5

Once more we have enjoyed a wonderful annual extended stay at Gulfside Beach Cottage ... six weeks is not enough !! The weather gods brought summer - like conditions, near freezing temperatures, gales and even nearby tornadoes but the cottage handled all with aplomb .... all systems working perfectly, heating, cooling, fans etc. The Beach cottage team continue to provide good maintenance and updates on an annual basis. As always we love the location in a friendly little neighborhood with close proximity to the beach. The newest addition to the restaurant scene "Aqui" is a winner ... and it is just around the corner. South Western Cuisine well prepared, great margaritas and service. We hope to do it all again next year.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It's been 3 weeks since the best vacation on the Gulf! Where to start?!? After we settled in and unpacked we ordered delivery. We were so comfortable and relaxed we didn't want to go anywhere the first night and we didn't! This charming cottage had everything we needed and was so inviting. The Gulf is so close after the first few days we stopped wearing our flip flops and walked barefoot! We enjoyed some of the most beautiful sunsets over the Gulf. The access is not a public access so there are no cars parked around and the beach was wide open. The backyard is amazing and just as relaxing as the cottage itself. We walked to many shops and restaurant's on Gulf Blvd. The location is great! I was very sad to leave after the most perfect 8 days at the cottage!!! This was our first time booking through a site like this. It was the most easiest process and Natalie was great to work with! My husband couldn't stop saying how perfect everything was all week. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a private, relaxing getaway!!

Beautiful Property + Helpful Owner + Awesome Beach + Nice Location = Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our first stay at the Beach Cottage & it was a GREAT experience.

The owner (Natalie) was great in answering any of our questions prior to booking, confirming deposits & payments were received, and overall making sure we were please before, during & after our stay. We had info & menus in a nice basket on the table when we arrived. It was very reassuring that she was so accessible if we needed her.

The Cottage itself is in a great location. The beach is literally about 50 yards from the front door! The neighborhood is very quiet & safe. My wife & daughter stayed in one night & relaxed while my son & I went to a Rays game. They felt totally safe here. Tampa, Clearwater, etc. are all about a 20-30 minute drive away. The Tampa City Pass is great if you have kids as you get tickets to 5 attractions for $100/person. If you go to at least 2 of them, you end up saving big $. Fabulous dining- Seaside (5 min walk) had delicious food (loved the lobster tacos and live music on the patio). The Conch (5 min drive) lived up to all the hype on this website. Hands down the best meal of our entire trip. Everything from the fritters, to the coconut shrimp had the "Wow factor". For breakfast the Friendly Bar (5 min walk) had awesome breakfast sandwiches and portions were huge. For dessert I'd suggest the Candy Kitchen (also 5 min walk) for homemade ice cream and some cool retro candy. For a day of shopping, the John's Pass Boardwalk area was only 10 minutes away. Lots of shops and dining in that area.

Now lets talk about the house & beach. The house was so clean and bright & is exactly as you see it in the pictures. Big, comfy L-shaped couch, TV's in both bedrooms, very comfortable beds - it felt like home the entire week. Having a laundry was nice as we could pack less & always have fresh beach towels. Kitchen was fully stocked - all utensils, small appliances were there for us. The back patio gave us a place to sit out in the sun, relax and grill up a nice dinner. The Cottage has a handy beach wagon, umbrellas, chairs, small cooler a big beach bag - everything for a fun beach day was there for us! Afterwards the outdoor shower helped wash away the sand and quickly cool off. The beach was gorgeous. Soft sand, not busy (pretty much locals), dolphins swimming by, and sunsets you could put on a postcard. The owner + location + beach + quality of this location = the perfect place for our family. I can see why so many come back. We will likely be one of those too!
