About Allison Warren

We live in the neighboring community of Palm City and love participating in all beautiful Stuart/Martin County has to offer: subtropical climate, proximity to great beaches, outdoor living and meeting visitors from all over the USA and the world. It is a wonderful place to visit. We bought the house for our own family and friends to have a nice place to stay. There is a shortage of nice short term rentals in our area. Why stay in a hotel when you can have your own 'home away from home' for less money?

Allison Warren purchased this house in 2014

Why Allison Warren chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

The house was built in 1965 when quality of construction mattered including beautiful terrazzo floors throughout. The location is close to everything a visitor comes to the Treasure Coast seeking. Stuart beach is a 3.5 mile drive or bike ride over 2 causeway bridges with stunning views...which still amaze me even though I live in the area. Historic downtown Stuart 'the hub of local activity' is 1.5 miles.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in a safe, friendly neighborhood with tropical landscaping and a comfortable side patio and hammock hut in the private fenced back yard. Ready for you to relax and enjoy your stay!

Great place to stay & relax. Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was all it was advertised to be. It was a great place to relax, beds eere super, and it had been tastefully updated. Very convenient and close to everything the area has to offer. It was also spotless. The fenced yard is great if you plan to bring your fuzzy family member. Would definitely stay there again.

Great little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I wish people didn't know about this place as I'd love it to be open longer. It's a great space...small but functional. And the fenced in back yard is great for my dogs. Beds were comfy and it had everything I needed. Kind of wish that the lights in the bedroom were on switches near the door though as finding your in the dark isn't awesome when you don't know the room that well. But other than that small thing (which isn't that big of a deal)...I'd happily stay here again. It is in a great location.

Stuart Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Warren's lovely Stuart Cottage. It was exactly as shown in the photos. The home was nicely decorated and SPOTLESS! Everything you needed was there. We especially enjoyed the covered patio. Neighbor was quiet and peaceful. My little dog and I enjoyed our long morning walks on the quiet streets. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking for an enjoyable get away in Stuart, Florida.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and well appointed rental. This home and neighborhood worked perfectly for us. If I were going to be critical, only two things stand out that need attention, in our opinions - spare bed was not very comfortable and the bikes were not great for more than just around the neighborhood. We enjoyed and appreciated the time and money invested into this rental. It's obvious the owners take pride in this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review! I am happy to hear the house was perfect for your needs and appreciate that you understand that we do take pride in the property. We have not had any complaints on the spare bedroom mattress or bikes....but will access the information and make changes as needed. Your input is appreciated.

Historic Stuart, located on the picturesque St. Lucie River, was originally settled in 1880. Today Stuart is a charming, culturally diverse, historically preserved city located in one of the most beautiful environments in Florida. Historic landmarks include the Lyric Theater, the Old Martin County Court House, the Stuart Heritage Museum, and on the beach at Hutchinson Island is the House of Refuge at Gilber's Bar, a place where shipwrecked sailors, in the past, found compassion and safe harbor.

The old Florida atmosphere of 'downtown' Stuart is home to over 50 locally owned unique shops and galleries, outstanding restaurants, arts and entertainment and a gathering place for residents, visitors and tourists who arrive via boat, bike or car.

Every Sunday October - May 1:00pm - 4:00pm enjoy the free Rockin' Riverwalk Music Series located in the outdoor Riverwalk Stage overlooking the St. Lucie River in downtown Stuart.

Stuart Green Market and Live Music Sundays - year round 9:00am - 1:00pm in the City Hall annex Parking Lot....also free

Stuart Heritage Museum is open every day 10am - 3pm and Road to Victory Military Museum is open every Saturday 10am - 4pm behind the Band Shell near the courthouse. The Courthouse Cultural Center provides exhibitions and gallery viewings to showcase and promote art in the community. These are only a few of the many things to do in downtown Stuart.

Let's talk Beaches, Parks and all that the beautiful outdoor environment has to offer....Turn off your cell phone and soak up the incredible ambiance of the Martin County shore. Miles and miles of peaceful beaches, beautiful water and natural sand dunes await you, from Hobe Sound to Jensen Beach with hundreds more in between. Right smack in the middle is popular Stuart Public Beach only 3.5 mile drive or bike ride from the house. And don't forget about 'surfishing', a favorite pastime that's easy for the whole family to learn!

For hikers and bikers alike, our natural Florida terrain teems with ocean side and lakeside trails as well as preserved woodlands and wildlife parks. Fishing enthusiasts can enjoy world-class fishing within just a 10-mile radius of our St. Lucie Inlet! And whether by power or sail, you can explore our scenic waterways, including coves, islands, Lake Okeechobee and the renowned Indian River Lagoon, whose unique estuary is home to dolphins, manatees, brown pelicans and other diverse species. You can also horseback ride, bird watch or just relax at one of our many parks and beaches.

You will find a Guest Notebook in the house filled with maps and brochures of things to do, find and see (sea) in the area.

If you decide to venture out of Martin County, drive times to other areas is: Miami - 2 hours, Ft Lauderdale - 1 and 1/2 hours, Orlando - 1 and 1/2 hours, St. Augustine 3 hours. So much to see!
