St. Teresa beach is a private and secluded white sandy beach. All of the homes are private family homes - no hotels or apartments. The Cochran Beach house is located on the site of the first home built on St. Teresa because it was and is the most beautiful location on the beach. The water is 100 feet away - right out the front door.

The home consists of one floor, a large main family room with open kitchen with three bedrooms off the main room. The master bedroom features a queen bed, a newly remodeled master bath with a large free standing tub, walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet. It has French doors that open to the front screened porch and the ocean. The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the main/family room. The front bedroom features a full size bed and also has French doors that open to the front porch and the ocean. The third bedroom has twin beds. A full bath is between both bedrooms. The main family room also has a sleeper sofa double bed.

The front porch is screened and runs the entire length of the home. A perfect place to relax and listen to the water, take a nap (swinging hammock provided) or watch the kids play in the water and on the beach.

If more sleeping space is needed, the property includes ($35 per night), a full bedroom with a full size bed and a 3/4 bath in a detached building. The room includes a small refrigerator, personal coffee maker (coffee provided), a flat screen TV, and a BluRay player with internet connectivity.

Additional amenities of the property include: outdoor hot and cold water shower, and a screened in fish cleaning porch also with running water.

The fishing on and around St Teresa Beach is excellent. For those guests that wish to bring their boats or jet skis, we have two permanent moorings in front of the house. One close to shore for smaller boats and jet skis, and one further out for larger boats.

We rent for a minimum of 7 days with check-in/check-out on Saturdays.

Our family has enjoyed this little piece of heaven since 1929. We would love to share it with you so you can make your own special memories at St. Teresa Beach.

Peaceful, clean, perfect for our family to get together for a nice visit.

  • 5 of 5

My children are all grown and live in their own homes. We like to stay here because of the location and because the house is large with wide open spaces. The kitchen is well equipped and very clean. We never had to leave the house for anything. The owner is very easy to do business with and returned my deposit promptly. We will stay here again, and again.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for us to get away and just relax! The house was perfect with its open floor plan, fulled stocked kitchen, and the screened porch can't be beat! We caught fish from the beach, saw dolphins daily, and were able to keep our boat beached in front of the house. The kids (teens) were never bored, there was just so much natural beauty to keep them entertained. The kayaks and paddle board were a huge bonus on this stay. Roger and Ruth Ann (property manager) went above and beyond. I can't thank them enough for helping us! I could go on forever about how awesome this stay was but to sum it all up, we are currently headed home and we are all bummed that we had to leave this wonderful house.

Wow, wow, wow! The Cochran home is the place to be....if you don't want to leave your whole stay there!

If your the type that needs surrounding places to go, like bars, kid activities, restaurants, etc, then the Cochran home is NOT for you. However, if you want some true, quality family time, without leaving the property, then the Cochran home is EXACTLY what you need.

The home is well stocked, wide open spaces, and dog friendly! The back porch is awesome! It truly is as wide as the house, very spacious, plenty of seating, and screened in! No worries though. The screened in porch does not get in the way of your view, which is spectacular! The residents are very friendly and the dogs have a great time, on the beach!

My family has stayed in many beach homes. The Cochran house is ranked in our top two. Not because of fancy furnishings, high end appliances, or a big city; but, for the peacefulness of the home.

If you never want to leave your home, while on vacation, the Cochran house is for you. You will not be bored. You will not be overran on the beach. You will enjoy good, quality time, with your kids. YOU will feel rejuvenated after your stay!

Note: always by groceries, before getting to the house, as the closest grocery is a good bit away, from the home!

Beautiful and the house was great

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the beach. Your home was very warm and accommodating. Plenty of room for family of 6 and dog to have lots of room and space. Enjoyed the quiet and sounds of the ocean. Hammock was one of my favorite places. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and be comfortable. We will return. The O'Connell Family
