Pine Island house description

Come enjoy a slice of island paradise on the white sands of quiet Pine Island, the only beach in Hernando County. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush and enjoy your stay in our bright, fully furnished, 1600 sq. ft. stilt island home.

Our island home is fully furnished, featuring a 55' LED HD flat screen TV (for when you aren't out enjoying Florida's Nature Coast); a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and granite counter tops; a large dining table that seats 6 (with additional seating at the breakfast bar). A master bedroom which features a private balcony that looks out to the Gulf (perfect for watching the amazing sunsets with your favorite beverage at the end of a beautiful day), a luxurious king bed and master bathroom, which includes a hair dryer...extra room in the luggage ladies ;) . The second bedroom features a queen bed, looks out to the Gulf, and is in close proximity to the guest bathroom. There is a day bed in the sitting area that has a trundle, so it can be used as two twin beds, or can easily be converted to a queen bed. Our home has an indoor washer and dryer as well as a wood burning fireplace, perfect to cuddle up around on those chilly nights.

Begin your day with a leisurely bike ride around Pine Island, or with a cup of coffee on the large sun deck as you watch the sunrise. Continue your day by basking in the sun on your own private beach at the end of the street, reading a book or watching the dolphins play in the Gulf; or a short walk away is Pine Island Park where you can grab a bite to eat at Willy's snack bar. Visit Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and see the live mermaid show (7 miles away). Tampa (40 minutes away via the Suncoast Parkway) offers Spring Training and the Rays for baseball lovers, the Buccaneers for football fans, and Busch Gardens for thrill seekers. Orlando (approximately 2 hours via Hwy 50) offers Orlando Magic for basketball fans, Disney World/Universal Studios for the young, and the young at heart, and Sea World and numerous other water parks for cool family time. Explore the many nature trails, enjoy a round a golf...there are endless possibilities on Florida's Nature Coast! Don't forget to head back to Pine Island in time to see the most amazing sunsets anywhere. This is truly a slice of island paradise.

We are excited to share our island home with you. Please contact us with any questions you have.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          Why the Owner Chose Pine Island:
          We chose Pine Island for it's amazing island feel. It is like being on one of the Florida Keys, only it is green, quiet, and you still have all the amenities of the big city, without having to live in the big city. You can truly feel everyday stresses float away as you make the drive down Pine Island Dr. and pull into your island home.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Pine Island is located in Central Florida, so anything from theme parks to professional sporting events, to visiting any of Florida's famous springs are just a short drive away. No one said you have to leave the island...we have the only beach in Hernando County, and because it is only a short walk from the house, there is no parking fee.
