Snead Island house description
Snead Island is surrounded by the Manatee River & Tampa Bay & connected to the city of Palmetto by a small bridge. Fish for sea bass, snapper, snook & grouper in the river as well as in the Tampa Bay & Gulf of Mexico.
This adorable Snead Island cottage is nestled on 2 beautiful acres of majestic oaks, orange trees & coconut palms at the opening of the Tampa Bay. Newly furnished with very clean & comfortable bedrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, attached laundry room & a screened, enclosed veranda. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and back entrance is wheelchair accessible. Continue down the shell drive onto a 100 ft dock to lounge, watch for dolphins and enjoy the sun setting on the Manatee River. A 35 foot boat slip is also available for a small additional fee, water & elec provided. Just to the right of the dock, is a small private white sand beach, for swimming, kayaking or just relaxing in the lounge chairs, under a beautiful mangrove tree.
The outside world of shopping, grocery stores, malls & waterfront restaurants are all within a 15 minute drive.
Beautiful 365 acre Emerson Point Preserve Beach Park is withing walking or bike riding distance on the island. There are bike trails, nature & birding trails, a canoe & kayak launch, white sandy beaches for swimming, fishing, picnic tables, barbecues, restrooms and a tower climb for an incredible view of the sunshine skyway bridge and gulf of Mexico. Pets on leashes are welcome in the park and on the beach for swimming. A great place to unwind and feel like you've stepped back in time.
Visit Sarasota cultural center, world renowned St. Armand's Circle; less than 1/2 hour to St. Petersburg and the retail shops at Bay Walk; under an hour to the excitement of downtown Tampa: or 1.5 hours to Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal and MGM Studios.

What a great vacation! The house is awesome and has everything that you need. Close to shopping, the sights, great restaurants and steps away from a beautiful beach. Can't get much better than this!!

This is a beautiful vacation spot. It is home away from home. I enjoyed watching the sunsets and dolphins jumping. I can't wait to go back.
