About Us

Steve and Nikki, the husband-and-wife duo behind Cottage + Sea, specialize in renovating and designing old cottages near the coast, keeping with their authentic character based on the year they were built, restoring their charm and bringing modern functionalities to the spaces. Steve learned the craft of buying investment properties and renovating them since he was a young boy working with his dad. Nikki has loved design and decor since she was young, using her creativity in product design, business and interior styling. Together, Steve and Nikki have been creating beautiful and unique spaces for others to enjoy through luxury short-term rentals like Airbnb and photoshoot rentals. 

Steve and Nikki's designs have been featured in various publications such as Apartment Therapy, Dwell, MyDomaine, Origin, Modern Home, Coastal Living, and more, showcasing their unique and authentic style. Additionally, their short-term rentals have also been a hit among celebrities who stay in their Airbnbs and use their photoshoot studios for their personal or professional projects.
