Property description

Our home is currently being fully remodeled with new pictures coming soon!

Relax in the luxury of the beautiful gated community of Andalucia by sitting on the private pool deck and sipping a cool drink while gentle breezes and invigorating music flow over you.

Whether your visit to Florida brings you for amusement park adventures, golf, tennis, or just relaxing, you will enjoy your stay in our water-front home featuring the amenities of a 5 star exclusive resort.

The large eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances with an array of small appliances for your use in addition to dinner/cookware.

Each of the 3 bedrooms are oversized, with the master room having a desk area. An extra area has been converted into a bedroom and there are additional bunk accommodations.

No need to concern yourself about staying in touch, because high-speed wireless internet runs throughout the home.

Fishing is great off the huge private boating/fishing dock with an area to clean your catch and you can grill a feast from your catch on the large stainless gas grill/granite serving area and dine/lounge on the pool deck.

This unique home was built by a German Engineer that tripled every standard for the home, so each door is solid steel with all glass one inch thick and doors/windows that seal tightly, which just about totally eliminates all outside sounds, and most dust too.

You will want to come here just for the sound sleep you will get.

Whatever your vacation desires are, you will know what 'upper crust' living is like at our Water-front Dream Vacation home in Andalucia.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a writer that lives on the ocean in Southern California and we often use this house to visit east-coast friends/family and the seclusion of the home lends itself well for writing/relaxing. We know you will enoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Apollo Beach:
Family/friends/secluded get-away for writing. You can access my two latest cookbooks and download them free by searching the net for Cooking for The Daniel Plan. I hope you enjoy! (I usually write movie scripts.)
