About the property



This cozy 4 bedroom 2 bath oceanfront cottage hosts an "H" floor plan

which works great for two families. Enjoy unobstructed ocean views

with no adjacent neighors. The "A" frame, hardwood rafters in the

kitchen and family room opens up the cottage to a warm, lighted feel.

The ocean deck is great for sunbathing or watching the dolphins and

pelicans play. The partially covered deck is perfect for dining or

taking in the gorgeous sunrises over the Atlantic ocean. Surf fish or

set up volleyball right outside your ocean door. This cottage is a great private

vacation wonderland!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family loved the house and the location. If you are wanting to be as close to the ocean as possible this is the place... Loved it! The tide comes right up to the deck stairs. Bedrooms were all nice and comfortable, the house was clean and the kitchen equipped.

Piece of Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Our week in this home was very nice. It's clean, smartly laid out and just perfect because it's right on the beach. There are two bathrooms, one of which is not very comfortable. There's a very small shower in it. Everything else was very nice.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

I started looking online at rental properties in February, 2011. I had no idea what to expect, but searched for a number of days. I found Peace of Mine and could not get the photos out of my head. I looked further and kept coming back to this house. I emailed the owner who followed up with me and had me reach out to the rental agency. Having never rented a property online, I was skeptical so I called Cathy and chatted with her for quite some time and eventually rented the house. I was looking for a house that was on the beach where I could spend the week with nothing but the sound of the ocean, peace and quiet and not a lot of crowds - and I got exactly what I wanted. This property is located some distance from the houses on either side. And being the last week in the quiet season, the houses across the street were not occupied. It was perfect! The house is lovely - 2 bedrooms and a bath on each side of the living area and kitchen. The deck was fabulous, large and furnished, perfect for my 82 year old Mom to sit in the sun and not have to negotiate stairs unless she wanted to. Although a bit chilly that week, I didn't care and got in the ocean everyday! Watched the sun rise, fed the gulls and chuckled at these little tiny birds (I guess they were terns?) run in and out with the waves. They were so cute. We also saw dolphins nearly every morning. The house was clean; we opted to bring our own linens and towels. I was not there to visit attractions or eat out, so I don't have any insight regarding this but it appeared as though there were a few places to eat. Since this was our first time here, I would have appreciated a little welcome gift, maybe a sand pail with coupons or information about the island and where to eat, what's around to do, etc. That would not stop me from renting here again though and when we left, I let them know I would like to return next year. I have recommended this house to others!
