Quaint, romantic, beach cottage sits back in Palm trees just across the street from 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 furnished with double bed, small kitchen, basic accommodations-and a short walk across the street 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. This means 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' but still benefiting from 'locals only' knowledge :)
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 early as your booking will need to be for "3" persons. We do not accept children over 2 years. Additional guest fee applies. 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.

The indialantic beach cottage was very cozy, cute, and quaint. A great location that is a short walk to the beach and a 20 minute drive to Cocoa Beach. The cottage is a wonderful place to stay for travelers who don't need all the bells & whistles. Hosts were friendly and gave us plenty of privacy!
The cottage was beautiful, clean, and quiet. We were a short walk from the ocean and fell asleep each night listening to the sounds of the waves crashing against the beach. Este was an awesome guide and let us borrow his boogie boards. The overall experience was wonderful.
I am very satisfied with my stay at Este and Cryss' Beach Cottage. The cottage was clean, comfortable, private, and more spacious than I had imagined. You can walk across the street and be at the beach within five minutes. The surrounding area is a laid back beach town with cafe's and many outdoor activities. Este and Cryss were very welcoming and helpful! I will definitely come back again.
We had a very pleasant stay here. The host Este was very welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and close to the beach.
We really enjoyed our week and we were lucky with the weather! Este was really nice and welcoming. We felt we had our privacy. I recommend the cottage for a couple! Thank you!
The description of the place was accurate. The place is small but private. No place to sit except on the bed or outside. It is conveniently located to the beach and many restaurants. Easy parking on location.
This was our first stay with airbnb and I'm not sure if this is the norm but there are messages placed throughout telling you what you can or cannot do. This did make us feel uncomfortable and I'm hesitant to stay again in an airbnb.
We had a great time relaxing at the cottage! Este was great and the place is exactly as described. The beach is a quick walk and really does feel private. The Cottage was clean and cozy, perfect for a couple escaping real life for a few days. We are already thinking about trying to stay there again next year in February again to get away from the cold winter weather. I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone traveling to that area.
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!
