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!

The Space

Studio cottage a block from the beach furnished with a double bed comfortable for one or two. We can provide infant pack & play for child under 3. Discuss with us prior to booking if child is to be included; additional guest fee will apply. To be upfront; the cottage really IS a studio- it is not spacious staying as a family- while we certainly don't mind setting it up for you, we don't want unhappy customers! :)

Furnishings: books, beach towels, & furnished kitchenette with microwave, small refrigerator, & local advice are included. There is not space within for a table so you're set up dining for two al fresco! Or if you prefer, you may use the picnic table on the screened lanai for meals; it seats 4.
We've stocked your bungalow with local menus, maps, phone listings and tour pamphlets and furnished it comfortably with all amenities of home (minus a television).
The cottage has electricity for charging your electronics. We've also installed solar and timed lighting through the backyard in case you come in late from your adventures.
The front yard of the main home is large and far removed from road. Backyard is fenced and shaded with palm and fruit trees, private from road.

Guest Access

Outdoor grill and screened lanai are yours to use for meals. Lanai is attached to main house and is shared.
Guests have access to back yard, tree-house, covered clothesline for beachwear, towels & please do take advantage of the outdoor shower to keep your space sand-free...

Trash will need to be taken out daily- unless you like Florida buggies- Este will show you where the rubbish bins & recycling units are.

Single, secure parking place directly in front of our main home. Lighting provided for late night returns from your adventures. Sorry, space is for only ONE vehicle per booking.

Interaction with Guests

We will provide a clean cottage & fresh linens upon arrival. Daily turn-down service is not included.
We will give you your privacy. If needed, we are available in person, or by text message / cell phone. We live on-site, after dark, please, emergencies-only.

With advance notice, we can arrange to have certain items available upon your arrival; fruit, grocery items, wine, etc

Anniversary? Birthday? If you have something extra special in mind, please contact us before booking, give us the details, and we'll discuss how we may help to make it a memorable date.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Este & Cryss are great people. Adorable and comfortable little house. Perfect for my needs. It's good to know that whenever I'm down that way to visit family, I have a place to stay. Very close to the beach. A quiet, safe neighborhood! Thank you!

  • Great spot to hang out in the Melbourne area. We found the cottage to be lovely and have everything we needed. The beach access is great, and Este was very helpful with suggestions for things to do in the area and being general available. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Beautiful cute cottage, Este and Cryss are wonderful people, if you are looking for a place to relax and forget about everything else this is the perfect spot, definitely I'm coming back

  • Beautiful little place. It is small but VERY nice (but hey- it's Florida... who spend time inside anyways?!) The cottage has a brand new feel to it. Very clean and nice! And I slept sooooo good on the comfy double bed with the summer breeze blowing in the window. Perfect base of operations for exploring the space coast. Can't say enough good things about it.

  • Este and Cryss were great hosts and the cottage was really clean and comfortable. The location is awesome, literally a 5 minute walk across A1A. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe. And if you want to learn to surf or paddle board Este is your man.

    May 2014
  • Exactly as described-a perfect little beach cottage. It is cozy but not cramped and manages to have a basic kitchen-impressive! We enjoyed nearby Melbourne-the art district and the historic downtown. It could not be closer to the beach and is perfectly relaxing-so nice to be close to 'home' while on the beach.

    May 2014
  • Este & Cryss' little cottage is a real gem! It's exactly as it looks on the pictures, the beach is literally across the street and the welcome is warm, friendly and very relaxed. We had a great stay and I would come back any time!

    May 2014
  • Este & Cryss are wonderful hosts, it felt like visiting friend!. Their cottage is clean, beautiful and you can see the love in every detail. It is really perfect. We had a wonderful time. Este taught us how to Stand Up Paddle. He is a great teacher and it was lots of fun. The beach is really close and we could even use Estes Softboards. We enjoyed our stay at the Indialantic Beach Cottage so much, we will definitely come back!
    Thanks again Este and Cryss!

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!
