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.

My boyfriend and I came to Indiatlantic, FL for a final, summer vacation. We both wanted different things out of this vacation- Phil wanted us to visit some of the attractions in Orlando, and I wanted to spend time on the beach. Este and Cryss' cottage was absolutely perfect and met all of our needs. It is quick walk to a lovely, beach that has a very "private" feel to it, and the drive to Orlando is an hour away, and not bad because we never hit any traffic the few times we traveled there.
I loved Indiatlantic because it didn't feel touristy, but there were lots of things to do and tons of great places to eat or go out for a drink.
Este and Cryss were very kind and welcoming hosts and we really enjoyed meeting them. They gave us our privacy, and the cottage was very neat and clean. We were sad to leave, and I would love to return to Indiatlantic someday.
Este and Cryss really take care of their guests well. The beach cottage is so clean and fresh. They even have beach towels for you to use!! The location is a dream! It's literally a two minute walk to a secluded beach. It's really incredible. I would definitely recommend this airbnb to anyone looking for a one of a kind place to stay.
Este greeted us upon arrival and was friendly. However, we felt he went into too much detail about expectations as it was sprinkling rain, inside would have been better. The cottage was as advertized and was clean. A few improvements could make it much better though. As I said Este was friendly, the cottage clean and near the beach. If that is what you’re looking for I would recommend staying here.
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
