At long last, you can again rent the beach cottage of your childhood. If you tend to avoid templates and revel in one-offs, you?ll love Vilano Blue Bird Cottage. With wood paneling, Beatles posters, and tons of charm, it?s just like the golden summers you remember best.
This two-story beach cottage is brand new to the rental market and sleeps up to 8 people. Need outdoor space for scavenger hunts and fantastic privacy? Blue Bird Cottage sits on half an acre and is a particularly serene and natural spot, surrounded with mature trees of all kinds.
Arrive, race up the outdoor staircase to explore the wrap-around deck. Suddenly at eye level with palm fronds, it?s evident your vacation starts here. Grab a drink from the wet bar just inside, and get to know your surroundings. Your deck extends in an L-shape around the second floor, offering perfect breezes and beautiful, dappled sunlight. Plop on to brand new outdoor furniture, wicker armchairs with thick white cushions, as the wind chime works gently in the background. Lazy days start right here. For morning coffee or afternoon cocktails you?ll find that all is right with the world.
Indoors, the living room harks back to the good old days with a vaulted ceiling, original wood paneling and, as if to suggest the soundtrack: large framed portraits of John Lennon and The Beatles. A huge sectional couch ends with a chaise on one end, and extends for miles in the other direction. Coming with tall people? This is the couch made for long legs. Sit facing a big, flatscreen TV as overgrown kids or competitive members of your group get to work on the fussball table to your left.
Two large bedrooms offer a king and a queen-sized bed, with a pair comfy-cosy single beds in the enclosed sunroom. Need a bit more space? Find a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room ? the perfect spot for your Nick at Nite fan. In the master bedroom, a wrought iron bed with tons of pillows recalls visits to Grandma?s house, where you slept better than anywhere on earth.
When hungry, the kitchen has a large dining table for six, as well as a wide breakfast bar. The galley kitchen lets your head chef remain at the helm by the oven, range and microwave, while helpers can offer assistance down the long stretch of Corian counters.
Get your kids to the kitchen table on the first request? It?s not impossible. Blue Bird Cottage connects kitchen and living room with a spiral staircase ? sure to be a popular feature with imaginative kids who?ll see it as steps to a princess castle, a dragon?s den, and more.
Need your technology fix? WiFi is available throughout the Cottage. Outdoors, there?s a BBQ grill and tons of parking, not to mention a half-acre of garden to explore. Laundry facilities are available too and all linens and towels are provided.
Vilano Blue Bird Cottage is the perfect home to reunite with your Brat Pack or spend a nostalgic family vacation with ?Jack and Diane? turned up loud.
