Built in 1956 right on the beach at beautiful Alligator Point this house has that Old Florida beach cottage charm. Thanks to a complete renovation in 2009 it has all of the modern comforts. This house is perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway yet has enough room for a few kids. This cozy cottage offers a beach experience unlike any other. It is far removed from public beach access ensuring a relaxing getaway year round.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a really relaxing time. I would have given a fifth star but there were two days of inclement weather and we couldn't get in the water. Had fun in Apalachicola and found a good fresh seafood market in Carrabelle. We want to go back for another vacation.

A lovely, well-appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this week for our honeymoon. The house is located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The raised deck overlooking the ocean is wonderful. The owner took care of any problems promptly. There are some aspects of the house that are a bit worn around the edges, but nothing that will stop us from renting this lovely cottage again!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Hugh's Cottage is well maintained, clean, and completely private, absolutely perfect for a couple. I wish I could give it a bad review just so there would be more vacancies in the future and we could go back more often.

Wonderful, intimate hideaway with lots of personal touches. Beach is gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing, beautiful week of sun and Gulf and good eating. The bungalow was clean and well stocked. The beach is visible across the whole front of the house and the bedroom. The hot tub is well placed and private, clean, with great views at sunset. Very dark at night so glorious star watching with ocean music. We highly recommend a stay in a beach bungalow in a Florida that is slowly disappearing.

Simple relaxation... all you could want!

  • 5 of 5

Alligator Point is definitely low-key "no neon" environment... just what we (& our dogs) were looking for! The beachfront cottage & outside area were both everything the pictures show & more. Nice touches all around by the owner... even assisted me promptly & graciously on getting the grill burner working, which we put to good use! We really liked this place & would book again if returning. (Not the location for stimulation junkies!)
