My boyfriend and I had to take off for the weekend, since our house was being fumigated, so we took a drive down the beach (we live in Tampa, FL) and happen upon the adorable cottages. It was a Sunday and while the office was close, once we called the number, the owner was happy to direct us to one of the open cabin for viewing... we fell in love with the rustic, old florida beach cottage charm. And the privacy - there are only 7 cottages, of the whole place.
We booked it 2 days later. The owner was accommodating of our situation, we have two dogs and they accepted them with no issues, specially since one of the is a bull-mastiff and over 160 pounds! She was open to our very early checking on Friday and very late check out on Sunday night. The cottage was clean, has FREE high speed wireless internet, cable TV and the kitchen had all the necessary stuff you will need to cook simple meals. Each cottage has an outdoor grill, which we used plenty during our short stay.
The beach is RIGHT there, as in walking distance, which was super convenient, and very private, unlike crowded beaches, there was only an handfull of people during our 3 beach days, on Friday we had it all to ourselves!
It was a perfect stay! We are planning on coming back again and again.
