Welcome to Nick’s Cottage on spectacular St. Joe Beach! This super cute, newly refurbished, 1940’s beach cottage is the ideal spot for your next beach vacation. Located only 200 steps from the white sand beaches in quiet St. Joe Beach, you are bound to make the most memorable vacation memories right here. This strip of beach is tucked between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe and protected by the Cape San Blas peninsula creating a calm shoreline perfect for kids to enjoy. Not only is this one of the most family friendly beaches, it also tops the list for pet friendly beaches.

With a great yard, Nick’s cottage sits on the ground level with only a single story and has ample lounging space outdoors. There are three outdoor spaces to choose from, two of which have fantastic gulf views. One of the coolest exterior features is the oversized outdoor shower areas. There are two outdoor showers with hot & cold water. One has a large galvanized tub for bathing your beauties, either the two or four-legged variety.

This 1940’s beach cottage is full of character, and I’m sure if it’s walls could talk the lesson learned would be to kick back, relax and use them to create your own lasting vacation memories. Improving on the original style, Nick’s cottage has been fully restored to look Instagram-worthy. Reclaimed wood and doors recovered from Hurricane Michael have been used and the kitchen and dining area are a treat. The living area is sized just right, cozy and quaint, with an extra sleeping area. Inside the main house is one bedroom and full bathroom. Just beyond the bathroom pass through a narrow breezeway to access the second bedroom best suited for two small kids and their parents. This bedroom also includes a TV and a front-loading, stackable washer/dryer.

We loved the house it just only sleeps 3 really because the bunk room is uninhabitable so we will need a house that actually sleeps 6 instead of paying for one that sleeps 6 and have to sleep 3 to a bed. It was really disappointing. We were there with our kids to get married and it just out a damper on the entire week. Not to mention we spent our hard earned money and did not get what we paid for.

Nick's Cottage is so cute, and it makes me happy that a place that's been around since the 1940s is being preserved so well. The walk to the beach was easy, too, which is even better. Decorated beautifully! We would have liked a shade to pull down over the front door window, since at night that room doubles as a bedroom. Also, if you are a plus-sized person or a tall person, you'll find the shower in the bathroom too small. You'll want to use the outdoor shower area, which is completely enclosed and private. We loved the pretty kitchen, and the beds were comfortable. Plenty of storage for your clothing in the bedroom closet and bathroom shelving with baskets. Outdoor spaces are comfortable and cute to look at. Neighboring houses were nice and the renters weren't noisy. It was a great experience, as I always have with Pristine Properties!

We loved it here! It surpassed any expectations. I wanted to move in. The only thing about the furniture is the couch and the bed were a little soft for aging backs. Thank you so much!

Overall, Nick’s Cottage was a great stay for our family. We loved the location to the beach and upon arrival, the house was spotless. Highly recommend.

Great location, very clean, comfortable, and up to date. I only wish the deck was higher or the outside seating was bar height to better enjoy the gulf view.

Wonderful, Quaint, Beach Retreat
Where to begin? What a lovely time we had with our young girls making memories in Nick’s Cottage. Beautifully and comfortably furnished, with a kitchen that I wish I could have in my own home! It is clear special thought was given to little ones with the inclusion of the bunk house and adorable outdoor tub in the spacious shower area. Just steps away from the beach, it was easy to go back and forth to enjoy the sun, sand, and waves. We will come back often to this very sweet cottage!

Very nice cottage. However, the main bedroom and kitchen remained warm even with the air conditioner on lowest setting. The trash had not been emptied outside and the bin was full as was the dishwasher upon arrival.

Kelly S - Posted: 5/26/2021

Please note that an extra measure being taken this past year and half is to attempt to wash all dishes between reservations.  With limited time between reservations this may cause situations where guests arrive to a dishwasher of fully cleaned but not put away dishes.  We apologize in advance on how this appears.

Nick’s Cottage
Nick’s Cottage is a home away from home for our family. Our peaceful retreat from this busy world. The quaint cottage has everything you need and everything you don’t. The neighborhood is quiet, the magnificent beach is a short walk away, and there is no putt-putt golf course and no Ripley’s Believe it or not. Bring a book, play games in the evening, and enjoy each other.

I wanted to be sure to clarify on how many pets are allowed.
Anonymous U - Posted: 08/04/2022

Answer:

This property currently allows a maximum of 2 pets.  If you begin the booking process one of the first questions will be regarding bringing pets and if indicated you will see a price for the pet fee that applies.

How much is the pet fee? is there a limit on size of dog? Do you have to cross a highway to get to the beach? thx
Anonymous U - Posted: 09/19/2022

Answer:

This property is located across Highway 98 from the beach.  Pet fees for properties are shown when selecting a pet during the online booking process.

I asked 2 questions yesterday and really need answers so i can decide whether to book it.. these are new questions: are there biking and hiking trails nearby? any places to buy food (prepared or groceries) pet fee for one dog?
Anonymous U - Posted: 09/19/2022

Answer:

There is a sidewalk near the property that goes much of the length of St Joe Beach.  Also not too far from this house is a biking trail that runs near the beach on what is an old section of Hwy 98 no longer accessible by vehicles.  As for groceries, there is a full size grocery store in Port St Joe about 10 minutes away.  Pet fee for the property can be found when selecting the number of pets for the reservation during the booking process.
