Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

This charming seaside cottage is truly unique. Walk out the front door, across the stone-

tiled covered patio, and your feet are in the sand. No stairs, hallways, or elevators to deal

with. This cottage is

literally RIGHT ON THE BEACH! You have your own beach area surrounded by sea oats.

Just beyond is the sparkling, clear water of the Gulf of Mexico. The living room, kitchen

and eating areas all have unobstructed views of the water.

One of a kind Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

From initial contact, Lissa was amazing with correspondence. This was our first experience with VRBO and renting over spring break and she made us comfortable with the process. This place is truly a special spot. Pictures just don't do this beauty justice. From the beautiful decor to having everything a family needs to the amazing is a true gem. We had two 16 year old girls and had plenty of space for all of us. The location is ideal. Walking distance to a great coffee shop, grocery five minutes away. The real treat is the view and spot on the beach! We never left, there was no need to go anywhere because the spot is ideal. Lissa has done her homework because her bungalow has everything you need, top of the line appliances and amenities and was absolutely SPOTLESS! We will be coming back year after year now as we have found our spring break destination for sure!! Definitely ONE of a kind!!

Another fantastic week with friends in this cottage...

  • 5 of 5

I love my vacation time...well, don't we all? That is exactly why we rented this cottage again this year!

The atmosphere and accommodations are so inviting, gives you that warm welcome before you step inside the cottage. Our next door neighbors were enjoyable, as the week could not have been more perfect.

Great places to eat nearby, and if you just want to prepare a good meal... the kitchen has it all.

Sunshine from dawn til dusk.. I would have to say, this cottage on the beach is a slice of heaven on earth.

Thank you again Lissa for making my vacation dreams come true!

See you next time!

I so enjoyed the cottage by the sea.. spending time with my sisters & friends.

Love the location and privacy that it offers on the beach. This little cottage offers everything you need for the beach scene for anyone who loves being on the gulf.

Thank you Lissa for a memorable week in your cottage!

Mother - Daughter Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was the ideal place to have family and friends meet my daughter. It was a "Lifetime Movie" reunion and our motto became "Memories Begin at the Beach". We loved the cottage effect, the privacy, the closeness to the beach and so many more things about this rental.

Lissa, it is so adorably decorated and comfortable, so thank you for allowing us to make our memories at your vacation rental. We will be back!!

If you choose to venture out, there are many area attractions and activities such as boat

rentals, diving, fishing peers, deep-sea fishing charters, golf, shopping, museums,

professional baseball, football and hockey. Busch Gardens is an easy 45 minute drive.

There is also wonderful fine and casual dining very close by. In fact, the five-star Salt Rock

Grill is within walking distance. If you so chose,the beach trolley stops one block away and

runs all the way up and down the Gulf beaches.
