Welcome to “Castaway Cottage!” Your journey begins as you find yourself marooned on an uncharted island. As you enter the palm-lined driveway you discover a small cottage – perhaps left behind from a group previously stranded here? It looks as though they gathered things they could find on this island to construct a cozy and comfortable living space.
The main living space of the cottage has a hand-made driftwood sign with the name “Crusty Crab.” In here you find a brand-new fully equipped kitchen (maybe a ship carrying kitchen furnishings dropped some of its cargo?) with all the appliances and dishes needed for fixing meals. It also appears that a beautiful large sofa washed ashore, and it contains a queen-size sleeper. Somehow these clever folks also found a brand new 55” OLED TV to keep them occupied during their stay on the island.
Down the hall you find “Coquina Cliff” - a full bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. Apparently these previous guests found some clever way to get running water from some hidden spring on the island!
In the back of the cottage you find two bedrooms. One bears the name “Coral Cabana.” Here you find a “tree house” with beds to sleep up to three people, along with wall decorations that some previous guests must have found on the beach. The other bedroom is aptly named “Coconut Cove” – the queen-size bed is surrounded by decorations featuring coconuts and palm trees, including a TV in the hidden palm cabinet.
While this amazing little cottage does not have a direct view of the beach, it is located on the beachfront property. By following a private trail on the north side of the other house on the property you may walk directly onto the beach (without crossing any road). The beach shed near the path contains beach items for your use, including beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and boogie boards.
While you are “stranded” at Castaway Cottage we encourage you to enjoy some of the MANY fine dining and entertainment opportunities in the area, including:
* Orlando attractions, including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World (just over an hour drive west)
* Kennedy Space Center (one hour drive north)

If your “crew” includes furry four-footed mates, then you are in luck! Castaway Cottage welcomes dogs on board for a small additional fee.
For larger gatherings where you find yourself in need of more than one “island”, there is another house available on the property. “Salty Dog” is available on the same grounds, and can sleep an additional fifteen people. This house includes a full kitchen, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Salty Dog house also has EXCLUSIVE access to the back yard, hot tub and tiki hut. If you would also like to rent Salty Dog please see our other ad, or contact us for more information.
Please note that if you do NOT rent Salty Dog then there may be other guests present in there during your stay, and they will be sharing your access to the beach. Also, this property (Castaway Cottage) does NOT have access to the hot tub, back yard or tiki hut.Get the full listing »
