A lovely and relaxing place to stay near our favorite places on the Forgotten Coast: Wakulla Springs, St. Mark's Wildlife Refuge, Panacea (home of the hand's down best fresh seafood: Posey's Up the Creek), Carrabelle (best extant retro beach that allows dogs), and Apalachicola.

Truly a beautiful colorful space! Loved showering beneath the open sky with wood beneath my feet.

Carlotta was an excellent host. Flexible on our length of stay due to Hurricane Irma. She was very accessible for questions. The cottage is really awesome. Everything you could possibly need is available, including many staples in the kitchen, bath and living room. Decorated just so cute. Her garden is beautiful. We were amazed at the numerous butterflies and hummingbirds. We would definitely recommend this to anyone and will return again!!!!! This was actually one of the best rentals we have visited.

Previous reviews stated that pictures do not do this place justice, and that could not be more true! From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the beautiful colors, the incredible use of a relatively small space, and - most of all - the small details. Soap and bubble bath in the bathroom, washing detergent with the laundry items, multiple candles ready to be lit, a generous welcome gift, a record player and vinyls, flowers and butterflies galore, decorative lights on the screened in porch, even dog shampoo in the outdoor shower. Ed and Carlotta have thought of everything and because of that our stay was fantastic. We were able to eat in most nights due to the adequately stocked kitchen. We spent our days on the beach at St George Island (definitely worth the short drive). My husband was able to catch fish from the beach as well. Even our dog became quite the beach bum! We were sad to leave but hope to return!

If questioning the Airbnb itself it is fantastic- great for two people. The outdoor shower is wonderful and spotless, as is the entire apartment. It's on the small side but was fine for two people, plus we were working- internet was great and had no problems during stormy weather with connection. Kitchen well stocked with pots and pans, we did a long road trip to wal mart and stocked up for the week. The only issue is beaches are not really 'white sand' but we went to Mexico beach one day for that- also st George island was beautiful. Nothing is so far away it is a major issue. A great stay, loved it!

This cottage was perfect for a couple nights to get away at the beach! Very clean, nice outdoor shower, and just enough room for two people! The outdoor space was beautiful, and I would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended. We travelled to St George each day, and that was about a 30 minute drive. Carlotta was very easy to communicate with.

Cute garden cottage, perfect for a weekend away. The outdoor shower was different - seeing the stars while you bath is a unique experience. The screened in porch was perfect for reading during a rainy afternoon or watching hummingbirds & butterflies drink from the flowers.

Carlotta User ProfileCarlotta is a superhost.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, a working person, and someone who enjoys living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. I enjoy traveling to other beaches to visit family on other coasts.

My husband and I are true "rehab addicts". We purchased La Casita Bella and renovated it from shambles to what we feel is a cute place. We are happy folks that enjoy porch sitting, beach walking, dogs, and did I say reno?

We enjoy hosting people at our own home, as well as in our cottage. We love life and enjoy sharing good times with loved ones.

"Happy Travels" is our motto!
