Private Homes house description

This uniquely vintage Florida Key West style “bungalow” nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and overlooking the Clifton Waterway is truly olde Florida at its best. Just a short walk, or beach bike ride brings you to the Islands most popular of beaches, Tiger Tail. This 3,500+ square feet of well appointed, and comfortable living space, makes this private residence one of Marco Island’s prizes.
Recently renovated, this spacious two story home offers guests a 360 degree wrap around porches on both the upper and lower levels. A sun deck and conversational seating just off the master suite, makes for a wonderful spot for morning coffee, or evening cocktails. An expansive porch on the main level … makes a great venue for outdoor dining, or simply lazing about with a good read.

Hand hewn Hickory floors create a welcoming family room with floor to ceiling Florida washed pine bookcases filled with books to fit anyone’s likes, DVD, CD’s, flat screen TV with HD Direct TV, All Home Feature and
Top Choice Package , all complimenting a beautifully tiled fireplace complete the feel of Papa Hemingway sitting right next to you.

As one enters the bungalow thru her front French Doors you step into the Main Foyer, to your right you see a graceful winding staircase and a cozy seating area complimenting the Club Bar complete with a backgammon table and views out to the front gardens and bordering canal.
To your left, The Library. Staggered bookcases filled with books, audio books, family memorablia. Here you can setup your lap top and catch up on emails and facebook. The Cottage is wirelss throughout. Again, views of the front gardens and bordering canal.

One of the most enjoyed features of this home is its newly renovated, fully equipped and well-supplied kitchen opening to the Family Gathering area, the Dining Nook, lower Plantation porch, pool~spa and surrounding gardens all overlooking 150 ft of open bay water.

The Master Suite with its King Plantation four posted bed, on the second floor provides a full view overlooking the Clifton Waterway, the heated pool~spa, gardens and in the evening Gulf sunsets over Tiger Tail Beach.

A double faced fireplace and casual seating add to your ensuite comforts. Your totally renovated and remodeled Master bath offers you a spacious walk-in shower with double heads. His and her vanities with plenty of storage space. French doors open onto the Upper Plantation porch for your morning coffee, sunning or evening cocktails ... all overlooking the Bay, pool~sap and gardens.
Just across from the Master Suite and foyer is the first of four Guest bedrooms. Queen bed and full ensuite bath. This room offers it’s own Front Porch setting with views of the Clifton Waterway bordering canal and front gardens, while just around the corner is the sundeck and casual seating.

As you return to the main level of the Cottage, just off the Family Gathering area you will find two Guest bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill full bath with Euro shower, His and Hers vanity. Both rooms are king bedded. One with full bay views, the other with garden and canal views.

The fourth Guest room, 'The Hideaway~Billiards Room' is sun filled room, and separate quarters from the main level of the Cottage, but not detached from the Cottage. This room features a full size Billiard Table, Twin beds (or converted King upon request). This is the perfect setting for young ones with Direct HDTV, DVD, games, books, Wii and computer work station. This room also offers a balcony overlooking the pool~spa, as well as, views to the gardens and the Clifton Waterway… again enjoy those sunsets.

An added surprise and great fun. The Outdoor Shower … hidden in a cluster of Palm Trees just off the porch and pool~spa. This makes for great fun, especially for the young ones, Mum doesn't have to nag to take a shower, they go willingly.

The very secluded, heated Pool~Spa, outdoor H/C running shower, lush native Florida Palms, foliage and flowers makes for the most relaxing of venues. You truly unwind. No worries.

The lower Plantation porch also offers Guests a wonderful outdoor dining venue with gas bbq. Comfortable casual seating just right for reading, or a lovely glass of wine.

                  Car: Recommended

                  A unique Vintage Florida Plantation home with 2 wide wrap around Plantation porches. Just a o.3 mile walk to Tiger Tail Beach. Cottage Court sits on our own little Island within the Island of Marco, named by the locals , 'Gilligan's Island', or 'Little Venice'. A key lot at the end of a very quiet cul da sac and welcoming neighborhood, hemmed by the Gulf, the Cliffton Waterway and endless canals. 154 ft. of waterfront. Enroute to Tiger Tail you'll find several nesting spots for our protected Burrowing Owls, 'Hoot's, who have been made famous thanks to International Author, Reporter and native Floridian, Carl Hiaasen. His book 'Hoot' and Disney film by the same name.

                  Co-habitating with our fluffy little owl's are our

                  protected land tortise. Tiger Tail offers not just the miles and miles in either direction of our Gulf Coasts sugar white sand but a wonderful learning display, butterfly preserve and of course the timeless fun and art of shelling. The prize being a sand dollar or sea horse.

                  Biking, walking, exploring, beaching, just lazin' about ...

                  this is where you want to be.
