Perfect little old time beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good about this place. It was perfect for me and my husband and dogs. No stairs! Walk right out to beach! Great decks! Even w neighbors on each side it is very private. We saw dolphins up close. Sunsets were amazing. Weather perfect after a rainy start. Our week flew by.

Owner was very responsive to a couple very minor problems we had.

It's nice to be able to take the dogs. They loved the beach play.

We will definitely plan to return.

Summer vacation in October!

  • 5 of 5

We love the cottage. We love Alligator Point. We love Florida's Forgotten Coast. Would have preferred cooler temps with less humidity so we could open windows to hear the surf at night. Entertained by dolphins, seabirds, stargazing, fishing, & just staring out to sea. Dining on fresh seafood always makes me happy. You will find here the very definition of "chillaxin". If you need to unwind and reflect, this is the place.

It was a perfect little beachfront getaway with lots of privacy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. We had everything we needed and just steps away from the beach. Loved the privacy of the cottage and the quietness of the beach. So peaceful and the beach felt like our own private place. Perfect!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved our stay. The cabin was great. The pictures don't do justice to the outdoor space. It was so nice to wake up and walk out to our own slice of the beach without having to get up early and go claim a good spot like you have to do when you stay in PC. The only issue I had was tearing my kids and wife away when our week was done. You won't regret renting this cottage.
