    Jenn is a wonderful host. Very quick to respond and helpful. The three of us- one being our rescue pup were happy with this as our home base for exploring both Stuart and Jupiter on the look out for the best off leash dog beaches. The pictures and the cottage match which is not often the case. And although were were worried about the upstairs low ceiling it was not a problem for a comfortable nights sleep.

    Lovely and clean cottage

    Reviewed by: Nikki T. on


    The space was clean and had a roomy layout. The owners were friendly and welcoming and it’s about 1.5m to the beach in the quiet town of Hobe Sound. The space is attached to the main home and has its own entrance but you’re kind of surrounded by the owners house and property and the outdoor space is also quite tiny. The loft is def not for tall people so watch your head walking up and down the stairs. Clean and had all nice amenities just not nearly as private as I had hoped for - I had believed it to be a stand alone cottage. But if that’s not your thing, I highly recommend it!

    Manager's Response:
    Nikki, thank you so much for your great feedback. We're glad to hear you found the home to be clean and you enjoyed its wonderful amenities. We do state on this listing that the homeowners live in a separate home on the same property, and this information is available to all travelers prior to deciding to book. However, we're sorry if you missed that detail and were expecting something else. The outdoor space is a full 400 square foot area, with a 4-person dining table and a grill for guests to use and enjoy. Thank you again for your review and we'd love to host you again in the future! Best, the Evolve Team

    Jen, Luis, and their sons were excellent hosts. They were very warm, welcoming, and generous. The cottage was perfect for our family of 4 - we all loved it, especially Joshua and Rachel. The location was great for us - peaceful, relaxing, and a short drive from Hobe Sound Beach, Coral Cove State Park, and ~30 minutes from many other great parks/natural sites. Thanks for letting us us the beach chairs and boogie boards. We hope to see you again someday, be it in Hobe Sound or your travels.

    Charming beach cottage and courtyard

    Reviewed by: Dave P. on


    We couldn't have found a cuter place. It is absolutely adorable. Perfect in many ways! We love the private entrance and courtyard. The cottage is a good space, especially for a small family of 3 to 4 people for a week or a few days. The loft sleeping area has been whimsical for our son. We sleep comfortably up there. We brought an air mattress for our 6-year old. I have hit my head on the slanted roof more than once but no big deal. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, utensils/items needed for cooking. Jen and Louis were kind enough to even have munchies and breakfast available for us when we arrived. There are all sorts of ways to make it Cuban, drip or Keurig. They are great hosts and really thought of everything. We will be back even though my family lives nearby. It is truly a home away from home.

    This property is excellent for couples or small groups (4 or under) looking for a nice place to land while enjoying the beaches and MLB's spring training teams in the West Palm Beach area. Travel to games and the beach was easy and quick. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. We would definitely go back!

    Cozy Cottage in Florida's Nature

    Reviewed by: Dawn R. on


    We loved this cozy cottage nestled among Florida's nature! It is close to the beautiful Hobe Sound beaches and it's town treasures! Although we enjoyed moments sitting outside on the lanai sipping tea and listening to birds we found some amazing eateries like 11 Maple Street too! This cottage had everything one could need even a garden the hosts allowed us to pick basil for our omlets in the morning

    Manager's response: Thank you for sharing your story, Dawn! Fresh basil and tea on the lanai--sounds lovely! We hope you will get a chance to come back again soon!

    Perfect Weekend Get-A-Way Cottage!

    Reviewed by: MOM28 on


    This adorable and charming 1 B Hobe Sound Cottage was perfect for my weekend retreat last May. It had been a busy school year and I needed some "chill" time. I came in the evening and had a wonderful night's rest so in the morning I was able to see the amazing place for the first time. The cottage was in a quiet location where I could continue my restful stay. In the morning I was able to pray/meditate and read. After a very needed early afternoon nap, I visited the beach. While there, I was able to do some writing and most importantly I got to enjoy some fellowship with a dear friend who lived nearby! By the end of the weekend I left completely rested. Overall, it was a lovely experience. I would definitely come here again! *Originally posted on Homeaway/VRBO for a stay in May 2016

    Little Piece of Heaven

    Reviewed by: Sam on


    This beach cottage was a little piece of heaven on earth, nestled away from everything, but still easily accessible to everything you'd possibly need, including the beach, trails and grocery store. Perfect size for our family of four. Very convenient to Jupiter and Palm Beach County as well. Only two hours from Disney/Orlando in one direction and about 1 hour North of Ft. Lauderdale in the other direction. Check out Rancho Chico for great Mexican food nearby and don't forget to walk to Bridge Road for great family pictures by the massive trees. The hosts left clear instructions, everything was clean and there was even a great guidebook to let us know what activities, shopping and restaurants were nearby. Would definitely recommend! *Originally posted on Homeaway/VRBO for a stay in JanuaryJanuary 2016

    Great place to stay! I was staying by myself, so I was happy to see it was in a very safe area in a very friendly neighborhood (I ended up talking to some neighbors while I was there).

    Jen and Luis are very kind and generous. Their kids are sweet, and it was nice having a local nearby to ask questions to. I liked the little touches like homemade jam and other food in the fridge. There are a lot of fruit and vegetables in their jar, and they treated me often to them, including when I left.

    It is a great place for rest and relaxation. For the space itself, there was everything I needed. It was nice to have my own space, with private entrance and patio. I also had a parking spot, so I did not have to park on the road. If you forget anything, just ask Jen. They have bikes and things like that you can use too.

    This was a great part of Florida to discover, and unless you stay with someone, there are not many places to stay. Jen called it reminiscent of "Old Florida" where there are less strip malls and no gated communities. I liked that. I really liked the Banyan trees and geckos. - Kristen, Minneapolis
