Widgeon Cottage was a perfect fit for our family of 5. The property is well situated with easy access to both the bay and the gulf coast beach. The home was recently renovated with new finishings, furniture and kitchen. The home is clean and well cared for, and the landscaping provides for some nice shade around the pool and back deck. There was nothing we found lacking and enjoyed the kayaks, fat tire beach bikes, pool, spa and outdoor seating on the deck and patio. The pool house is well stocked with beach, pool and fishing gear. You truly need not bring any gear of your own.
The location in mid-island makes for a quiet setting but close by businesses and the tram stop to go to the more densely populated downtown beach area at the north end of the island. The neighborhood along the canals are quiet and everyone is respectful of each other's space.
This is an absolutely lovely home. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, yet is close to everything you need ... including a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated, very well maintained and FULLY equipped (bikes, kidsbike, kayak, games, beach equipement, BBQ and a lot more). The canal offers an extremly relaxing atmosphere (Dolphins!!!). Pool can be heated. The owners are very nice and helpful. Just an amazing place. We can only recommend it.
We had one of our best vacations ever at the Widgeon Cottage. The property owners are super nice. The cottage had everything we could possibly need and then some. We spent time kayaking, fishing, biking, using the pool and hot tub. One of the days it rained, we found a cabinet full of games and played games all day. I loved having my coffee every morning on the deck overlooking the canal. They provide so many extras! Beach towels and blankets, beach chairs, toys, floats, bikes, kayaks, games. They even had a welcome basket full of snacks! We loved this place and will absolutely stay here again if we come back ... !
