About this listing
Quaint & romantic couples cottage is situated in Palm trees, just across the street to the Atlantic ocean! Longing to hear the waves rolling across the shore? Come curl your toes in the sand & feel the kiss of the sun in Indialantic-by-the-Sea.
Studio cottage, double-bed, small kitchen with basic accommodations- a short walk across A1A to enjoy our beach!
Traveling with Airbnb is a unique way to view the area you're staying in. Unlike a hotel, our cottage is a part of our family home. You can expect private relaxation without interruption from other vacationers! This location is perfect for folks trying to unplug or 'get away from it all' (no Wi-Fi) but still benefiting from 'locals only' knowledge :)
Sorry, no pets, non-negotiable regardless of size.
The cottage includes books, towels, beach cooler, kitchenette with microwave, small refrigerator, & double hot plate, private bath room, loft for storage.
Dining for two, al fresco at your private patio table... if you prefer less 'nature' you're welcome to use the picnic table in our screened Florida room!
Your bungalow is stocked with local menus, maps, phone listings, tour pamphlets- everything you need for a relaxing holiday- minus a television- we swear you won't need it. You'll be too busy enjoying all our island has to offer!
Your private parking area is lighted, and far removed from our street.
Backyard is fenced and shaded with palm and fruit trees, usually quiet. Yard & exterior cottage has solar lighting for coming in from late night adventures.
An infant pack & play is available, please inquire prior to booking as we will need to adjust rate for "3" persons. We cannot safely accommodate children over 24 months old. The cottage is a studio-- it is not spacious to stay as family- but we are happy to accommodate for infants.
Outdoor propane grill, grill tools, and screened patio are yours to use for meals.
Shared spaces: screened lanai, back yard, covered clothesline & outdoor shower. (We typically relax on our private patio out front so likely its 'all yours'!)
With 24 hr advance notice, 2 visitors are welcome, in a single vehicle. Sorry, no overnights are permitted. This is a strict policy.

Check-In between 3 pm- 8:30 pm; as we are working adults with children we do not do "late night bookings". A good guideline; flights arriving after 6:30 in ORL should book for the next night. A text within the hour of arrival is appreciated- we want to be here to greet you!
Please treat our home and furnishings respectfully.
We are a couple with penchance for outdoor activity and simple living. We travel as minimalists and feel most "at home" in natural surroundings, but have visited Europe and Mexico as well. We have older children who we can't imagine living without; much of the time they travel with us. We're fond of bouldering, surfing, SUP, and hiking in our free time and have done it together for nearly a decade. Our family motto; above all things show love.
We are excited to meet new people & are looking forward to giving you pleasant memories and a great time in Indialantic. We love our little beach town & we know you will too!
