About this listing
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.

Este and Cryss are wonderful hosts providing a very comfortable and clean cottage within 5 minute walk to the Atlantic beach. Este warmly created us when we arrived, giving us a tour of the cottage and taking time to get to know us. They have very thoughtfully provided amenities to help make your stay more comfortable, and inviting for exploring the beach and enjoying the water. Peacefully quiet nights and a very comfortable bed provided for very restful sleep. Shopping and great dining is within a three minute drive. We look forward to staying in Este and Cryss's cottage in future visits to the Indialantic area, perhaps learning to "SUP" (Stand-Up-Paddle) the next time we are there!
We absolutely loved the cottage! Extremely relaxing, quaint and so close to the beach. Este was very welcoming and the cottage itself was clean and comfortable. Sebastian and I really enjoyed being able to walk to local restaurants as well as drive to Sebastian's Inlet for some awesome fishing. We could not have asked for a better way to celebrate our birthdays and we were sad to leave!
Quiet neighborhood and very peaceful at the cottage, close to beach, a single person would feel very safe here. We were attending a wedding in Indialantic and the location was ideal for us.
This is exactly what they said. It's literally a stones throw from the ocean. The cottage was perfect for us. It was super clean and este was an exceptional host! I loved staying here and would really like to go back. They gave us great advice on local dinning and attractions. Also had surf boards we could use for free. Which was awesome
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the cottage! The location was perfect for us- incredibly close to the shore. We really enjoyed talking with Este and loved all of the local recommendations. We will definitely be back and I definitely recommend the cottage to everyone wanting a quiet relaxing time, while still being close to so much. Thank you, Este and Cryss!! - Tasia & Brent
I had a lovely stay at Este and Cryss cottage. It was me and one other and we felt right at home. The place was PERFECT for us and the location was awesome as well. Indialantic has much to offer, like a hidden gem. We had a perfect getaway that we will never forget. We managed to check out some good restaurants and cook in a few times. Este is very friendly and quick to respond to any questions via airbnb or text. We also got to borrow his foam surf board during our stay which was quite useful. I would highly recommend staying here and would love to come back one day.
Mahalo Este and Cryss!
Staying at the cottage was indeed very relaxing, we enjoyed the quiet surroundings, the beach and the gas grill in the garden. We only stayed for two nights, but we can definitely recommend it, we would have stayed there longer, if we´ve had the time.
Este and Cryss were there to welcome us and show us around and provided a lot of information about the area in the cottage (folder, maps etc).
We had a great time in Indialantic und would stay there again, thank you folks for having us!
