About arli cottage

Pet Friendly! Located on one of the more tree-canopied streets on the island, our home will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway you have been looking for. The live oaks that cover this area give you the feeling like you are in your own world. Once you park your car under the carport in the back, you may not need to use it again during your stay. Cummings Lane is a very cozy, quiet, and peaceful location. It is only one block long with more people walking than driving. The trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.

We are in a convenient location at the south end of the island, just about a 10-minute (0.4 mile) walk to the beach and 15-minute (0.7 mile) walk to the Pier Village. When you visit the Village you can shop in a variety of interesting stores, eat in local restaurants, and listen to our amazing local bands.  Since the beach is also within walking distance we have a beach cart, cooler, beach towels, and some beach toys to make your beach time more enjoyable.  We are also centrally located to many more fun activities for the whole family to discover.

The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway. You will love the open floor plan of the living/dining area with the pass-through window to the kitchen. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom and can be considered to be their own suite.  This makes the home ideal for one or two couples or for families with children. There is a dining area as part of the great room, another dining area in the screened porch, and a patio dining set on the back deck.  The living room has two comfortable couches, a flat screen TV, games and books. The outdoor areas are wonderful for relaxing around the house. However, the front porch is truly our favorite spot with a comfortable double Adirondack chair, rocking chairs, a porch swing, and a great porch railing at the perfect height for putting your feet up while having your morning coffee or sipping a glass of wine.

We strive to provide a cottage that is comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. However, another goal is to provide an exceptionally well-maintained home and since this is our home for five months every year we are able to do this. Many other vacation homes are never really lived in by their owners, as ours is, and we think that makes a real difference. Because we actually live at the cottage for an extended period of time, we are able to offer a rental cottage that it is much more likely to provide you with that perfect trouble-free stay.

Other amenities include a large hot water outdoor shower, large back deck in a private (fully fenced) back yard, fully-equipped kitchen, cable TV, wireless internet access, and more. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality appliances, dishes, pots and pans, spices, and many other items you would need for those who enjoy eating in.

More information

Since 2013, we have spent every winter at the cottage and each time we have made improvements that we hope you enjoy as much as we do. Over the years we have replaced carpeting with wood flooring, built a large backyard deck with an amazing outdoor hot water shower, landscaped with many tropical plants and fruit trees (which we hope will actually have fruit one day), added fencing to fully enclose the backyard, purchased comfortable deck furniture and living room furniture, in addition to replacing the roof and the heat/air conditioning system.

The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway and so we provide all the basic essentials we could think of. In addition to typical items like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and tissues we also provide plastic wrap and bags, laundry supplies, hand soap, dishwasher soap, coffee filters, spices, and beach towels and cart. There is even a small cooler with those blue ice things in the freezer ready for your first day on the beach. Our overall philosophy is to have you arrive at a home that has what you need without having to immediately run out to Winn-Dixie. Yes, you will need to get food, but at least that can wait until you have had a good night’s sleep and your morning coffee…you will even find a packet of coffee for your first morning in the cottage. We really have everything you need!  It is our goal to provide a cottage that is comfortable, clean, and well-equipped.

It is truly rewarding to share our home as a vacation rental that is both warm and inviting.  We will make every effort to provide you with a comfortable home away from home, great service when needed, and an overall ideal vacation experience.  We have been doing this for five years and have had the best guests, many of who are repeat vacationers.  Once you stay at arli cottage we know you will want to return.  It really is a magical place!
