Finally, Captain's Cottage is coming back!  We got thumped pretty hard in Hurricane Matthew back in October, 2016, and then again by Hurricane Irma 11 months later.  Honestly, we were not certain of the future of this charming house.  For a while there, it looked like she was a goner.  Now, under new ownership, Captain's Cottage is being renovated.  If you have stayed here before, don't worry, the house will still be mostly the same (with some new upgrades).  One of the biggest changes will be the addition of a bedroom on the first floor.  That's right!  If you don't want to deal with that funky spiral staircase, you may not have to.  That is, as long as you get the new bedroom!  With all of this said, we are putting the house back on the rental market.  We expect the construction to be completed in early May, but we are playing it safe and not renting until June.  If you book a June date, and it looks like the construction will be lingering, we will let you know as soon as possible.   There is currently no furniture in the house, so the photos you see on this site are our old photos from 3 years ago.  We will have new living room furniture, new deck and deck furniture, a new king bed upstairs, and the new king bedroom downstairs.  We are going to run a pre-construction booking special.  We are honoring our rates from 3 years ago to anyone who makes a reservation between now and when the renovations are completed.  At that time, we will raise the rates a bit to reflect the new upgrades.  If you are interested in booking, we strongly suggest you ask as many questions about the house ahead of time.

A Unique Vacation Home

Welcome to Captain's Cottage! This charming A Frame house is one of the only beach front vacation homes with a private pool!  One of the most popular vacation homes on the strip, this cozy, character-filled home is a perfect beach spot for a romantic getaway or a small family vacation.  The classic A Frame cottage was designed by renowned architect Bob Broward and features timeless stylings like the exposed tongue and groove ceiling, glass chandelier, and the classic spiral staircase.  It features a unique floor plan that offers open living spaces on three levels.  When you walk in the front door, you will immediately notice that you are in a one-of-a-kind house.  Views of the ocean can be seen from just about anywhere in the home.  On the lower level, you will find a spacious living room, kitchen, and dining area.  All of this is very open and welcoming.  There is also a bedroom with a king bed on the first level, accompanied by a bathroom with a unique shower.  The kitchen has new appliances, plenty of cookware, and anything else you might need to make your favorite meals.  The dining area sits by the large oceanfront windows and offers dining with a view!  The 2nd floor loft has a twin-over-double bunk that will sleep 3 children comfortably.  Here you'll find a library of eclectic titles that can be enjoyed as you laze in the comfortable lounge chairs.  There is a half bathroom with a stack washer and dryer on this level.  The 3rd floor master loft has a full bathroom with a vintage bath tub, separate shower, king bed, and an ocean front balcony that provides miles of spectacular Atlantic ocean views.  

Sparkling Pool and and Oceanfront Deck

While the inside of this house is unlike any other, the outside offers just as much unique enjoyment.  Captain's Cottage is one of the only oceanfront vacation homes in the area with its own private pool.  Because the house was built in the '60s, it is closer to the beach than newer homes are allowed to be.  Therefore, there was plenty of room in the front of the house for a private pool!  Relax around the pool deck, work on your tan, or take a dip.  The pool area is the place to be!  The pool is professionally cleaned on a weekly basis.  On the ocean side of the house is a large deck.  This offers another great area to enjoy the sun, or have lunch by the ocean.  The deck has a lower walkway that extends out over the sand, so you can get very close to the water, and still keep the sand out of your toes!

Fully Furnished Home

When you visit Captain's Cottage, you will feel like you are right at home.  The house comes fully furnished with plenty of deck and patio furniture, beach chairs, and a gas grill.  Additionally, we provide beach and bath towels, clean linens, cable TV and free WiFi!  If you have had enough fun in the sun, be sure to visit our nation's oldest city, historic St. Augustine.  There you will find countless shops, restaurants, tours, and more.  Day trips to Jacksonville, Daytona, or Orlando are very easy from this location.  No matter what is on your vacation agenda, you are sure to have a great time at Captain's Cottage.  So, what are you waiting for?  Call today to reserve your beach getaway!
