You can rest assured that the Cottage guests will be well taken care of without me being an intrusion. We take pride in the Cottage being next to our family home and we go above and beyond to keep every guest happy. If there is a problem, let me know so we can do our best to remedy it.

Love this location, you are right on the water and close to beaches and shopping. We fished from the dock and caught Sheepshead & Cravalle Jacks. The apartment is spacious and the host is excellent.
Perfect for Our Stay
I stayed at this property while working on a project in Venice. It was perfect for my helper and i with separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen and living areas were clean and we had fun fishing from the dock after work. Bryan was super nice and easy to work with. I will definitely consider this property next time im in town!
Million dollar view! Cottage was clean, kitchen well stocked and owners extremely helpful. Returning next year😊�
Bayview cottage, Laurel FL
We loved our stay there. Cottage was as described in a great location with views that are hard to beat. Bryan was very attentive to our needs. Only complaint would be the grass was only cut once during our month long stay. The back yard would have been more enjoyable but this is a minor point for sure. We would love to stay there again if it was available.
Bryan was friendly and quickly addressed any maintenance issues we encountered during our stay. The cottage was nice and bright and we enjoyed some beautiful sunrises and sunsets and watching birds and dolphins occasionally. The queen bed was comfortable and the carpet was good. We had a short drive to the beach and shopping. We were aware that there was no dishwasher which I thought would not be a problem, but we really did miss the convenience. The parking under the trees presented a problem when it rained also driving over roots and leaves dropping from the trees were a problem. Due to the cottage having well water, it was necessary to dry dishes/utensils immediately to prevent stains. The water had a bad oder and feel when showering which became more noticeable toward the end of our stay. The carpet in The second bedroom and living room is in need of replacement due to what appears to be pet stains. As the upstairs was occupied during our stay, it was very noisy not because our neighbors were loud, but it is just a noisy house.
Thanks so much for your review. We are happy you enjoyed the amazing views, atmosphere, and location of the Cottage. I also appreciate knowing when things need tending too. Most things can be remedied when communicated.
The trees being one of those we cannot do much about. You do get "dripped on" when walking under the trees during the rain. It is part of our "old Florida" charm we mention in our ad. As for the noise from upstairs, it is true. You will hear footsteps occasionally upstairs. I am glad you found the upstairs tenants to not be loud. They are good tenants and neighbors.
The carpet and water were easily remedied. I appreciate you mentioning how quickly I addressed any maintenance issue. We needed to replace the water heater during your stay. It was replaced immediately upon bringing it to our attention. The carpet did have pet stains from the prior guest's dog. The stains were removed prior to your arrival by a professional carpet cleaner. It is unfortunate that they re-appeared as they seemed to have been in the padding and the stains wicked back up. When I saw these on your day of departure, I immediately called Montgomery's Carpet. They had the carpet in stock and three days later, the entire Cottage has new Stainmaster carpet. It was installed in four hours while our current guests were there (but went to lunch). The water aroma was another easy fix. The well water has an aerator, filter, and conditioner. I called to have it serviced after reading your review, and it too was an easy fix.
I desire all guests to let me know of your concerns right away. I take great pride in maintaining our "old Florida Cottage" to the best possible standards. You did state how quick I was to address items. You would have had new carpet and odorless water right away, had I known of the issues.
So glad you found everything else to be as nice as most. It is truly a unique atmosphere, living just 50 feet from the waters edge in our Bayfront Cottage. Unparalleled views and atmosphere...and a landlord who addresses issues as soon as they are known.
