Enjoy the best of SW Florida. The condo unit is located in the 'Four Winds Marina'. This is a full service marina with boat facilities, gas, bait, marine store, and a wonderful restaurant (the Lazy Flamingo) is just steps from your door. You can catch your own fish. Filleting station is directly in front of the restaurant ...walk your fillets in and they will prepare the fish to your taste and style for a nominal fee. This is a first floor unit (with parking directly under unit). A 'locked' 6' x 6' storage closet is located on ground level. The ladies will love the shopping in nearby Matlacha (pronounced mat la shay). Quaint, multi-pastel painted artisan shops line both sides of the street. Fresh blue and stone crab, shrimp, oysters and other delectable seafoods are readily available. A large, out-side, locked, pool area with changing and bathroom is just a few steps from the unit. Although the grounds are very quiet and safe, a uniformed security guard patrols all night. The gated turnstyle adds an extra element of security.
Free USE OF BOAT,( except for weather, unforeseen breakdown, etc.) 20' Pontoon boat has 2012 (90hp) evinrude etc...you save $300/day.
Free use of (2) bicycles. Consider taking the bicycles on the pontoon boat, boating over to CAYO COSTA STATE PARK to ride through the beautiful trails of mangrove forests, and the beach-side trails in the park.
Dolphins and manatees swim past your lanai. The beautiful birds fly so close to your lanai that you can almost touch them. Watch the ospreys skim over the bay with their talons skimming the water...bang! Up they soar with a live mullet for dinner. Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass, Sanibel and Captiva islands are just minutes away for some of the best fishing in SW Florida. The tarpon capital of the world...Boca Grande Pass is just minutes away The laid-back, casual lifestyle of the island is sometimes interrupted when you or the car in front of you stops.... The driver gets out to pick up a tortoise that has strayed onto the road and carries it to the edge of the road to safety. Cayo Costa State Park, a short boat ride across Charlotte Harbor, features 2 1/2 mile, pristine, sugar-sand beach. Water-taxi service is available. Several fishing rods are available for guest use. Living room features a 'queen-size' pull-out bed with a gel-foam topper, reclining love seat, and a big-man’s recliner chair. Kitchen appliances include coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, 'wide-opening' toaster for bagels, microwave oven, etc.
I've seen wild boar near the condo, as well as tortoises walking nonchalantly on the side of the road. Giant, great blue herons feed frequently, directly in front of the lanai.
Free high-speed wifi (up to 24 mbps).
(2) KAYAKS have been added for 'shared use' by my renters.
Yes, my prices are a bit higher than comparable condos in this area, but 'DO THE MATH'..... if you were to rent a pontoon boat see ( WWW.BOATSFORFUN.COM ), AND (FOURWINDSMARINA.COM ) you will find the rental for a 20' pontoon boat averages $300+/day and over $1000/week. If you only used the boat 3 days a week...that's about $ 900/week and $ 4000/month.....It's like getting the Condo for FREE.
Generally, Jan, Feb, and Mar are rented every year to regular renters. All you need is to check out the number of rentals on my calendar, and it tells you a story.... My renters keep returning year after year....because I do everything in my power to provide a very enjoyable place for you to have an exceptional time in paradise. If you like this condo, but the dates you would like are not available...I, also, own and rent the adjoining unit # 203, see VRBO # 643317. It is a carbon copy, but with a WRAP-AROUND LANAI.
If you are interested, I really would appreciate a phone call...rather than a response thru VRBO.... There have been a few instances where I did not receive the notification from VRBO. So, call Bob Coffill, owner...@ 617-678-1018
If boat is not required as part of rental or if you have your own boat, ask owner for special discounts from $600/mo, 200/week, to $50/nite. Special 'last-minute' rates available for rentals within the next 30 days.....call.
