Florida House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 3BR/3BA Cottage with Swimming Pool, Across the Street From the Beach!

What better way to spend a vacation than in A Cottage By The Sea!

Here you can enjoy Gulf views from every bedroom and easy access to the community beach boardwalk at across the street pricing.

Pulling into the driveway of your private beach home you immediately begin to picture yourself relaxing on the covered porch as your cares and worries slip away. You can still enjoy the amazing view as you unwind in the living area with a mounted flat panel TV, and large eat-in bar. The living area is flanked on either side by two Queen bedrooms, one with a private bathroom with access to the outdoors. A hall bathroom with tiled-shower stall opens to the East deck with easy access to the private pool and side balcony for a bird’s eye view of the residential area.

Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with two Queen beds overlooking the glistening Gulf waters. These guests will share a full bathroom with a separate vanity area and plenty of counter space for everyone! To further add to your convenience, a flat panel TV is available in every bedroom.

If you need a break from the waves and the sand, take a dip in your own private swimming pool. You can rinse off in the enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower and prepare the catch of the day in the fish cleaning area with sink, grilling it up on the park-style charcoal grill.

Dolphin watching, shelling, or simply walking for miles on the beautiful beaches of St. George Island, A Cottage By The Sea will help you create memories with family and friends for years to come!

And, don’t forget FIDO! We allow up to 1 dog under 30 lbs with advance permission.

Wonderful Property to spend a vacation

  • 4 of 5

Property was spotless and supplies in place. Well worth the money spent. Pool was sooo nice!! Electrical outlet on front porch not working. Need this to charge my mobility scooter. Also, the new beds are very comfortable but impossible to get up into! I had to buy a stool in order to climb up!! I t was buy the stool or get a running start from the living room! The back door from the second bath leaked when we had a hard rain one day. We also were disappointed to see that a new house is being build in front of The Cottage. You will need to change the picture on the web site.

Nice Place!!!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and Clean. Easy and short walk to the beach. Nice Pool area. Only thing I would like to see as an improvement is better beds. The beds slept terrible and very noisy.

A wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I would stay at this house again. It is very clean and well kept and we really enjoyed the pool area and the awesome view of the Gulf from the front porch. The beach access is very close to the house, across the street and two houses down. The only things that would make this house any better would be a small shaded area at one end of the pool and a screened in porch so that you could be out after dark without having to battle the mosquitoes. This was our first visit to the island and we really enjoyed it. Thanks to Jaimie, she was a joy to talk to and was very helpful.

Very comfortable and relaxing stay. House very clean and just as expected. Beaches not over crowded and very family friendly. My only suggestion for the house rental would be to provided a few more amenities such as more than one roll of tissue for each bathroom. Area quiet and felt safe for morning runs.

A Cottage by the Sea, Saint George Island, FL

  • 4 of 5

The pluses are the view of the ocean was great from both levels of the house. It was ample space for 3 couples or a large family, especially with three full size bathrooms. The layout of the house was good and the kitchen was well equipped. We also enjoyed the pool and the front porch rocking chairs.

Even though the house was across the street from the ocean, the walkway to the beach was one house down making easy walking distance to the beach will all the beach equipment! There was also a recycling can there too so you don't have to drive into town to recycle. We just dropped off on our way to beach each morning.

The negatives were the house was not as luxurious as staged in the pictures. It was functional and adequate, but buyer beware. There is definitely a wiring problem as the electricity flickered throughout the day and 2 lightbulbs popped during our stay. Also one burner on the stove did not work. Unfortunately, the lot in front of the house was surveyed during our stay, so the view of the ocean will probably be obstructed (at least from the lower level).

Owner's Response: Hi Mindy! We are so glad you were able to enjoy the space and convenience that our property has to offer and thank you for making us aware of the wiring issues that you noticed during your stay. We have had the property evaluated by a licensed electrician and have resolved the issues found. We appreciate your bringing this to our attention! With regards to the empty lot across the street, it is possible that there will be a home constructed there in the future but the view will still be breathtaking. We will be sure to update our photos, should this happen. We hope to have you and your family and friends return to stay with us!

overall, the house was fine but there were enough little things to be annoying. most of the electrical outlets are worn and plugs loose enough the phone an tablet chargers wouldn't work, had to use the ones in the kitchen where the devices were in the way of cooking. the upstairs toilet has a tank leak and only flushes half the time, an easy fix, but wasteful and annoying. the location was great and the house was otherwise as advertised.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. We hope you and your family had a wonderful time on St. George Island celebrating the holiday season! We were not aware of any troubles with the electrical outlets inside the home or the upstairs bathroom, thank you so much for bringing these items to our attention. Please never hesitate to call us if there are any maintenance issues that occur during your stay, no item is considered too small! We are happy to do whatever we need to do to correct any inconvenience and only ask for the opportunity to do so. We regret that we were not informed of these issues during your stay and that they posed such an annoyance. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future to find that they have been resolved, and don’t forget we have a property manager on call 24/7 for any such issue and to answer any questions you may have so that you can make the most of your SGI vacation!
