“Peaceful place”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I was looking for a place to rest and relax over the weekend and found the perfect one. Manatee Cottage is a small, well kept cozy place to enjoy peace and relax a bit. Totally agree with other reviews that this is a hidden treasure. The delicately decorated room, the landscaping of the patio with the koi fish pond have made this place one of my favorites. Jacqueline and Dave are wonderful hosts, very friendly, cordial and always are available to their guests. Thank you for your hospitality and for letting me bring my little Boyce who had fun chasing lizards in the yard. Surely I will be back and stay longer next time.

“"A Diamond in the rough"”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a wonderful stay at Jackie's and Dave's place! They were excellent host and the guest cottage was perfect for Debbie and I. We loved the privacy we had, absolutely loved having dinner outside in your very own private garden! Debbie called this place a hidden gem, but call it a diamond in the rough! Thanks Jackie and Dave for sharing your guest cottage with us! We will definatly be coming back to stay with guys!!! Darren & Debbie Hollingsworth Savannah,Georgia

“Someone said "hidden Treasure" - that is what I say also!”

person found this review helpful

This was a "hidden treasure". It was quaint, close to our home (less than an hour) and a good place with just about everything we needed. I like Jackie a lot (didn't meet Dave). She answered questions, but let us do our "little get away". She and Dave are on the same property, so very convenient. It was soooo close to the beach, loved the private court yard!

We plan to go back! But hope not too many people find this place as we would like it available when we plan to come next! (smiling as I say this)

Very good restaurants within walking distance, so nice to not have to drive anywhere! Thanks!

Liked best: it very much exceed our expectation - newly remodeled and very clean!!
Liked least: The no see-ums or mosquitoes - they are seasonal and yet we wanted to sit out side, but got bitten as well.

“Great Experience!”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I just stayed here for four nights. We loved the experience. The accommodations were even better than expected. The cottage was well kept, clean, nicely decorated and had a convenient location. Off street parking and walking beach access were the cherry on top. The property owners Jackie and Dave are good people and were very helpful in giving recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the area. If we are back in the area we will try everything possible to book this property again :)

“Hidden Treasure!”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is perfectly decorated, clean, and has mature landscaping surrounding the entire place! Attention has been given to every little detail! Walk across the street to the beach, come back and shower off, sit outside in the enclosed, private patio area and enjoy a refreshing drink and snack. I have been to this cottage several times however, this was the first full week. The week flew by! There is so much to do close by - stand up paddle boarding, jet-skiing, kayaking, boat rentals, shopping, massage, surf lessons, and lots of restaurants to chose from. Jackie and Dave are extremely friendly, helpful, and a joy to know! They are opening the second unit and it looks amazing! Great place to have peace & quiet but close enough to everything else. (Nail salons and grocery shopping close by too) You won't be disappointed!! :-)

Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Spent a wonderful 3 nights here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Wow what a great little guest cottage near the beach. Perfect location great furnishings and absolutely beautiful courtyard. Loads of great little bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Definitely a go back to place. The owners Jackie and Dave were informative and friendly with some great advice on where to eat and go etc. We will definitely be returning to this little piece of paradise at cocoa beach, can't recommend highly enough.
