Description from owner

Located in an executive neighborhood Mid-Island, this 3 bedroom water front home is the ultimate in privacy & relaxation ~~and only three blocks to the white sandy beach!

Whether you relax in the climate controlled pool, sunbathe on the beautiful patio, or read in the shade of garden palms, the peace and tranquility here will rest your soul.

This home is the ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND on the island, designed with outdoor enjoyment in mind.... So unique because the house wraps around the caged pool and lanai area, enveloping it and making the outdoors part of the indoor experience. The pool is situated so that it takes in the sun all day long, with the roof overhanging portions of the lanai providing shade while enjoying watching children play in the pool. This expansive lanai features outdoor dining area & gas grill for afternoon repast or Twilight dinners. The pass-through from the kitchen to the lanai makes serving a breeze.

Trees and hedgerows grow on each side of the home, and plantings around the screen limit intrusive viewing from the canal.

The interior of the home boasts 2400 square feet of living space. This offers a huge open floor plan. The super-sized living room area has one wall of stone fireplace. Plenty of space in the dining area as well ~~ you can easily seat everyone around the table. A wall of glass sliders open out to the screened pool area for magnificent view of the canal and Bay, and brings lots of light in the home.

The kitchen also faces the outdoor living area. Appliances include a larger than average refrigerator, double ovens, dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal. Washer and dryer are located in separate laundry area.

The wrap-around effect is anchored on each end with TWO Master Bedrooms, both opening to the outdoor living space with expansive sliding glass doors. Both Master Bedrooms feature King beds. Sleeping quarters are completed with bedroom #3 having 2 twin beds, and a full size roll-away and pack n play for toddlers.

For the continued enjoyment of all guests, this beautiful home is STRICTLY NO SMOKING. Not in the house, not on the lanai, and not on the grounds.

Animals are allowed upon approval and when registered on rental agreement.

We also have other homes on the beach if you wish to inquire:

2 bdrm with pool and 4 bdrm with pool.

Beds: 2 King Beds, 1 Double Bed, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Crib

“All I can say is WOW!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2016

My family of 5 adults (plus our furry child) stayed here for 4th of July week. This home is everything the other reviewers stated and more. The neighborhood is a quiet one with more full time residents than rentals which was perfect for walking at night. Being on a canal near the bay was so peaceful. We could be in the refreshing water of the swimming pool or sitting on the large and well outfitted deck and watch the boats pass by. The house is immaculate and beautiful with a huge dining table and many comfortable seating options. It was never a problem for us to all hang out together. The kitchen is definitely retro but everything works perfectly and it is really well equipped with dishes, pots, pans, and everything you need. (My family prefers my cooking over restaurants.) :) Beds were very comfortable and there was ample amounts of blankets and pillows. 3 nicely designed bathrooms plus an extra sink/vanity in the master bedroom meant we could all get ready for the beach or to go out without issue. A washer and dryer meant we did not have to pack a ton because we could do laundry during the week. (A real plus for my daughter who had to fly in for the trip.) Lots of nice little touches like big flat screen TV's in all the rooms and on the deck, pool floats, toys for the beach, games, and books. Be aware that although the house is 3 blocks from the beach it is about 5 blocks from the nearest beach access so if you are bringing a bunch of stuff you may want to drive to the beach or bring a wagon. This is not in any way a complaint, just an observation, and even during a busy holiday week we never had an issue finding parking at the beach. Finally, the owner Alice was extremely helpful and really cared about our experience. We will definitely be back! Thank you for helping us create some great family memories!

Owner's reply: Just a quick note...there is private beach access lane that our guests missed. So you do not have to drive to the beach nor be concerned for parking. The beach is just the 3 blocks (8 minute walk) not 5 blocks. Alice

“Love the house and location!”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2015

We had two families in the house for the week and it had plenty of room. It's really nice to have two separate master bedrooms and separate bunk rooms. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. It does come with a golf cart which a really nice benefit and made it really easy to get to the private beach. The beach is very clean, beautiful and was not very crowded. The house is located in a community and away from the major hotels which is really nice. Close to a huge shopping mall, target, and walmart. We did rent a pontoon boat for the day and went to shell island.which we all really enjoyed and recommend. The only downside to the house is that the pool is a little small but it worked for us.

“Great Rental”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

This house is beautiful, ideally located (within walking distance to Publix & the beach), and the beds are very comfortable. The pool area is nice with room to lay out as well as areas to get out of the sun to eat or read. The owner, Alice, was very helpful and considerate. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone and we will definitely be back!

“Baseball Trip”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2010

Just as described this was a perfect spot for us. Coming to Florida on a baseball trip, we had 4 guys and three girls and it was perfect. Never did we feel cramped or in each others space. To wake up each morning and look out at the canal and then walk a very short distance to the beach was perfect. Nicely decorated and with all the amenities needed. We were able to cook and have meals together as well as invite the rest of the team over for a cook out. What a great experience. Thank you
