It's the perfect place for a couple or a small family. The cottages are well-appointed (you'll want to shop for groceries at Walmart or Publix on the mainland), and the Wi-Fi is better than in our hometown. There is no maid service, and we loved that ! There is a washer/dryer on site ($ 1.00/load is a suggested donation), and... More

They have bikes to use, wagons to haul the beach chairs. There is a small pool / hammock area . Delightful !!!! No traffic noise from... More

We had the one bedroom (Number 2). It had everything we needed and was so close to the bay and gulf side of the island. The seahorse cottages are nestled in a tropical garden with palm trees and hibiscus and other beautiful bushes, and they supply you with bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and wagons. I was surprised how quiet it... More

We just completed our stay at the cottages and were thoroughly happy with our choice. We stayed in 1A, the studio unit. It was clean and comfortable and provided a good base for our activities. It was walking distance to bay and gulf and removed from the island's busy central area. The grounds were nicely landscaped with tropical plants. There... More

We stayed at the Seahorse Cottages for the second time this past Memorial Day weekend. There are 4 cottages on the property, at the east end of the island near the lighthouse. So comfortable and homey! Each cottage has a full kitchen, bedroom(s), a living-room and eat-in kitchen, bath, front and back porch, and cable TV. No maid service, but... More

It is an excellent choice for a weeks stay in paradise. Not fancy, but old Florida! Its in a quiet neighborhood near the old lighthouse and its famous shelling beach. A short walk. The kitchenette doesn't have a dishwasher. Management provides free beach chairs and umbrellas, bicycles, and washer and dryers. Don't over look the small swimming pool and hammock!
