Property description

Located directly on Tampa Bay!!! 80 foot boat dock, Brilliant sunsets with views of St. Pete skyline in the distance!!! Enjoy dolphins, manatees, sting rays, seagulls, pelicans, osprey and many other fish and birds in the back yard. South shore Tampa Bay is known for some of the best fishing around. Launch a kayak right outside your door, or play Bocce Ball on the court and eat in the picnic area.

This bayside retreat has two units. One upstairs ('Pelican Side'), which has two bedrooms; and one at ground level ('Dolphin Side'), which is the one bedroom listed here.

Dolphin Side is a one bedroom bayside unit with no steps to climb. The large bedroom has a queen-size bed. The living room has a soft leather couch, love seat, rattan chairs, and terrific bay front views, a flat 42 inch LED TV, Dish Network programming with over 235 channels (America's Top 200) and a DVD player with a small library of fun movies. And the living room has a nook/den with two twin beds for extra comfort. The dining room has a terrific table with seating for six. The full kitchen has a range, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, and all cookware. The bathroom has an extra large shower (handicap accessible), hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There is also a washer and dryer in the utility room. This one bedroom unit can accommodate four people on comfortable beds.

Pelican Side is a two bedroom upstairs unit and leased to an annual resident. It is currently unavailable.

This bayside retreat is centrally located being between Tampa and Bradenton/Sarasota areas. The property is only a few miles from E.G. Simmons Park which has a boat launch, a beach and walking paths with views of Tampa Bay. Little Harbor Resort is just down the street offering a Tiki bar, live entertainment, and waterfront dining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, my name is Darryl. I divide my time between this place and Atlanta. I like the property because of the terrific sunsets nearly every evening, and it's located directly on the bay. I also like quiet Ruskin (home of the famous Ruskin tomato) with it's old school Florida charm. And if you like more activity, it's a 20 minute drive (via Port of Tampa) to Ybor City in Tampa, or a 20 minute boat ride to a marina at St. Pete. I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do!!!
