Property description

Beautiful views from this recently remodeled bayfront cottage. New paint, furniture, and 47' LCD hi def tv are just a part of this remodel. This modest and clean cottage lies along the northern shore line of Dona Bay, enjoying the same views and setting as the neighborhood of multi million dollar homes. The views and atmosphere are spectacular.

The recently remodeled cottage has two bedrooms. One with a pillowtop queen bed and the other with two single beds that could be put together as one big bed. Each bedroom has cable tv. There is also a separate dining room, an eat in kitchen, living room, laundry, and two baths. It has Verizon FIOS 47' hi def tv and high speed wireless internet. The home sits about 50 feet off the shore line providing up close waterfront views from most rooms of the cottage. The home has it's own private boat dock with a boat lift. Rental boats nearby.

Enjoy boating, fishing or crabbing on your private dock with boat lift. Canoe or kayak from Oscar Scherer State Park. Boat rentals nearby. Beaches within 1.5 miles. Bicycle to the beach or public tennis courts, which are both about one and a half mile away.

Many fine restaurants in the area. Many beautiful golf courses to choose from. Rent a boat, windsurf, parasail or charter fishing nearby. Shell and shark's tooth hunt on the famous Casperson Beach. A ten minute drive to Sarasota and 50 minutes to Tampa (Busch Gardens and Adventure Island), and 1 hour 45 minutes to all of the Orlando attractions. Yes, I mean Disney and much more.

There is no smoking permitted on the property, inside or outside. Pets may be accepted with additional deposit OR credit card on file. Please inquire about options for parties of more than four.

The cottage is the downstairs unit of a duplex. The upstairs unit is rented from the first week of January through the end of March to a couple in their 70 s with a standard poodle. They have been renting the upstairs unit for fifteen consecutive years. I live next door and can assure you they are a quiet couple and the dog rarely barks. Otherwise, I would not have had them as my neighbor and tenant for the last fifteen years. The upstairs is not occupied during any of the remaining months. It is then like a single family house from April through early January.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We live next door and have since 1994. We bought the cottage as a rental and have enjoyed meeting different people over the years. You can rest assured that the cottage guests will be well taken care of without ever me being an intrusion. We take pride in the cottage being next to our family home and we go above and beyond to keep every guest happy. If there is a problem, let me know so we can do our best to remedy it.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Did you see the views? It is an extension of our own home being right next door so we enjoy the increased frontage along Dona Bay, not to mention the investment aspect of it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Again, did you see the views?
