About the property

1 Bedroom With Full Kitchen, Living & Dining Surrounded By Mature Landscaping

The bathroom has been fully renovated. The home has been refurbished but maintains its old Florida charm including Dade County pine flooring. There are large oak trees and a mango tree that likely predate the 1925 home. Parking is plentiful with two driveways and additional on street parking. Sidewalks and crosswalks extend from the home to just about anywhere you'd like to travel in downtown Stuart.

About Steve Allison

This home was purchased in 2014 by real estate investors. Both partners fell in love with the home and the location. Instead of 'flipping' the property, the investors decided to renovate the home and keep it for personal use and occasionaly a tenant.

Amazing cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT spot for us to finish off the last 10 days of our vacation to Florida. After spending 6 nights in Fort Lauderdale, we headed north to Stuart, a quiet but bustling oceanfront gem! How can I explain Steve's unit - we didn't want to leave! There wasn't anything he overlooked, from the comfortable bed, tastefully decorated interior and well-stocked kitchen. The best part, all within a few steps of the historic, downtown core and about a 10 minute drive to the beach. A very quiet neighborhood, I was surprised to discover a tea-room just in the back yard and a funky boutique at the end of the street!

All in all, this was by far one of the best rentals I have discovered on VRBO. We intend to return!

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this a charming & clean cottage but it's a superb location. A short walk to restaurants, bars and shopping. The beach is a 10 minute drive. Less then a 1/2 hour drive to Mets spring training which was the reason for the trip. Quiet neighborhood & friendly neighbors. We will definitely stay here again and have told family & friends the same.

We loved our stay at this house in Stuart. We came to Florida to visit friends in Jupiter. Only about 1/2 hour away. There was plenty of room for my husband and I. It is clean, comfortable. I believe the Bathroom is new as well as kitchen. The location is great simply go out the door and quick walk into town. We went to town for art festivile which lined the streets. We walked the River walk a few times, drove to see a game at Roger Dean Stadium. Out favorite beaches were Stuart and Santa Lucia. Both are great walking beaches. One night we went to hear Paul McCartney music at Terra Ferrara, again we walked there. We picked up tacos at the local Taco place twice great tacos and very unique. Brought them back to the house to eat on the patio with our bottle of wine. In my opinion you can't go wrong renting this house. If there's more than two not a problem there is a folding bed and another little sleeping area on the property! we would definitely rent this again.

A Lovely and Relaxing Gem

  • 5 of 5

This 762 ft square cottage was a very pleasant surprise to us. This open concept rental appears a lot larger than the square footage. Comfortable furnishings and tasteful decorating makes this an appealing rental. The updated bathroom is lovely. A surprise to us was another building with a second bedroom, which we did not use.

Excellent customer service....The property owner, Steve was always assesible and if you needed anything, he made it available very quickly. He receives a five star plus!!!

The rental is a five minute walk from downtown Stuart, which is great and a ten minute drive to the beach is easy. There are many choices for dining, music and a beautiful and well maintained boardwalk, which winds itself around the town, close to the Khatib bridge center and numerous golf courses. Our favorite restaurant is Oceola's.

The neighbors are friendly and welcoming.

We will be renting again next year for two months. So yes, we would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

I didn't realize how close and convenient the location was to downtown Stuart. Everything was wonderful and easily accessible.

The cottage has recently been renovated but the original pine floors have been perfectly restored and add a level of authenticity.

Perfect for two or three people with the rollaway. They have furnished about everything you could want to have a nice relaxing vacation. New wall mounted TV (but you're in Florida so go out and enjoy!) and a large bed in the bedroom. The space was very open and enjoyable. Would absolutely return, it's nice not to always stay in a hotel!

Perfect little house for a stay in Stuart

  • 5 of 5

i was looking for a charming house in Stuart within walking distance of the downtown for three people. This neighborhood of beautifully maintained old Florida houses with surrounding gardens is just on the edge of town, many of the houses have square mosaics of colorful tiles and glass set into the sidewalks in front of them.

When I contacted the owner he had only the couch to offer for our third guest but when I asked him if he could buy a rollaway bed he instantly complied and our third guest had a very comfortable place to sleep with wonderful high thread count sheets on the bed. The house has recently been renovated and professionally decorated and is very well appointed. I understand a washer and dryer are coming soon as well as bikes! We could not have been more comfortable for our four day stay and give very high marks to the owner for his willingness to make guests comfortable!
