Property description

Now until September 30th, book a week, Saturday-to-Saturday, and get 2-nights FREE!

So you need a waterfront home with a dock and easy access to the beach and Gulf of Mexico?...Then Fisher's Folly is the perfect island cottage for you! Located on the private, gated, and exclusive Ono Island, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is fully furnished, equipped and waiting to make your vacation the best ever!

This cottage is located on the south side of the island, facing Ole River, just minutes away from the sugar-white sands of the Gulf Mexico. Whether you want to rent for the week for a family vacation, or a business retreat with your top client, Fisher’s Folly is truly a great island getaway, with it's cozy living on 2 levels, connected by a spiral staircase. The home includes a 100 foot pier which can accommodate boats with up to 4 foot drafts and the pier offers plenty of great fishing or crabbing off the side, plus you're only minutes away from some of the worlds best deep sea fishing. If golfing is your thing we have over 6 first class golf courses within a short drive.

Sun, fun, beaching, golfing and fishing paradise, what more could you ask for?
This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, sleeps 8. It was remodeled with natural cherry cabinets, bamboo floors, granite counter tops, all stainless appliances, convection oven, geothermal HVAC, 1 king/2 queen Tempur-pedic & twin beds, large wrap around deck and boat dock. Located 5 minutes from the Gulf by car or boat.

This cottage was one of the first homes build on Ono Island, and has created years of fond memories for family members raised here. If these walls could talk, you'd hear about Clay catching his very fist fish on a piece of fried chicken; or Sam running out of gas in the boat, 100 yards from the dock, and had to swim in; or Chad successfully tagging and releasing a 649 pound Blue Marlin. Big fancy exquisite home?...no. Big lasting memories from a great quality of life...YES!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

Why the Owner Chose Ono Island:
My parents bought the land back in the late 1960's when ONO Island was a deserted island. Fisher’s Folly was one of the first of the five homes build on the island in 1976. Boy have things changed, back then you had to buy your groceries 45 minutes away, drive 30 minutes for diner. Ono Island was, as it is today, a little piece of paradise. Today as back then Ono Island, is a private island, only today, the island has private access, with 24 hour security guards.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dock; pier; covered parking for two vehicles and extra space for 3 others in driveway.
