Super Awesome Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we used HomeAway and we did not know what to expect. We were so pleasantly surprised. Our cottage was perfect for us. It is very clean and well-maintained. The common area is like an oasis. The best part was how we were treated during our stay. The owner made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. He helped us in so many ways as we had to deal with our elderly dog. We are so grateful for his loving and caring character. I highly recommend this TRUE home away from home to anyone traveling to the West Palm Beach area. I would definitely return to this Cozy Cottage whenever we are coming back.

Travel Nurse's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful West Palm Beach retreat from May - August 2016. I absolutely fell in love with South Florida thanks to Grenny and The Gang... I travel with my 5 year old Shitzu named Oreo. He absolutely had the best time hanging out with Buddy. The place was very safe and that's very important when traveling alone. I loved the upstairs apartment it had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The grounds are just as beautiful as the pictures. I can't wait to get back!!!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two large dogs stayed at the Cozy Cottage for 10 nights Grenny (and Buddy, too) welcomed us warmly. The cottage was pleasant, clean, and very nice and was furnished with everything you might need. The courtyard is beautiful and so relaxing. It is totally fenced in too so pets are safe and sound. Grenny was so helpful and accommodating. He was so understanding of our year old rottie puppy who could be a bit of a bull! We truly appreciate Genny sharing his beautiful property with us. We definitely intend to return.

Charming Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the upper cottage at Cozy Cottage for the whole month of March, 2016 to escape the New England winter. My time there was delightful, as was the cottage. It was very spacious and it included everything I needed, except for my food. ( that includes access to the washer and dryer ). The pictures on the website are a true representation of the courtyard. It is so so charming. And the ability to use the pool next-door is an added benefit.

Grenny, the owner, was a most gracious host. He was helpful in anyway that he could be. He is very knowledgeable about the area. And, he has the most mellow and beautiful yellow lab dog. I fell in love with that dog.

The only downside is that it is on the flight path from Palm Beach international Airport and at times it could be very noisy but, I was able to get used to it.

Loved it, beautiful, clean, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 4 nights and it was wonderful. Grenny has a beautiful property. Our cottage was spotless and perfect. We loved the courtyard, it was perfect for our dog, Bella. We highly recommend his property, what a lovely and gracious visit. Also, he knows every dog friendly restaurant which was perfect for us and every local amenity that you may need. We really enjoyed our visit.

78 year old single woman, 2 dogs

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cottage for 2 months this winter to escape icy/snowy Vermont. Grenny is a very kind and solicitous host making it easy and comfortable both for me and for the pups. The fenced yard, patio, etc. made a very pleasant outdoor retreat. The area offers plenty of sites to visit within easy driving distance (unlike at home). Good TV, WIFI, etc.
