I just returned from a week at the Widgeon Cottage with my brother and parents and we had an absolute blast! It truly has everything you need for an awesome beach vacation. The first day we had breakfast on the deck overlooking the canal, rode bikes (provided) on the beach, kayaked (provided) in the canal and bay, had drinks by the private pool and hot tub, walked down to the beach to watch the sunset at a tiki hut with a pina colada and dinner in the square. Dan and Colleen were there to offer advice and help with anything needed and made us feel like we were at a 5 star resort! So Cheers to them and our wonderful stay at Widgeon Paradise Cottage! Thanks!
What a fantastic place Widgeon Cottage is. It's clean, spacious and everything you can think of is catered for. The owners are brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The local wildlife is amazing. We fed Pebbles, the wild heron that comes to visit most days, saw a dolphin chasing fish up the canal and even a manatee made a very brief appearance. We made good use of the kayaks and one day were surrounded by a number of dolphins swimming around us. We used the pool every day, usually later in the afternoon when it was in shade. It was a very welcome relief from the August heat. The local restaurants are great, many of which overlook the bay or the gulf. All in all a fantastic holiday.

We had a perfect week at Widgeon Cottage. Colleen and Dan were discreetly helpful, the place is clean and has everything you would need.
Dan taught us to fish from the back of the house and also lent us kayaks.
To top it all the weather was perfect.
Really great week.
