Property description

This is ready for your stay. We use this house for ourselves so it is a GREAT place to stay. The house has over 2000 sq ft of living space under air with additional living area outside. The palm trees make it so you don't see your neighbors and you get a private pool that no one is looking in on you. Also a private dock, long water views, walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. This contemporary open floor plan home is not too far from public beach access. It is Located right off of Collier Boulevard. The same road that you take into the island. You can walk to Starbucks, Cold Stone Creamery, Winn Dixie, Cocomos, CJ's and many more popular restaurants and shopping centers on this beautiful island. The home includes vaulted ceilings and a heated pool. Look out over your own personal dock as you lounge around the beautiful screened in pool surrounded by tropical palm trees that seclude you and you have your own private paradise.

The master has a walk in closet with an on suite bathroom that has a shower and a tub. The ceiling fan can give you a nice breeze on those hot nights and the sliding glass doors open directly to the heated pool for any late night dips or wonderful water views from your bed. The split bedroom plan gives privacy from the other two bedrooms. Twin beds are in each of the other two bedrooms. The two guest bedrooms have two bathrooms to choose from. One bathroom can be accessed from the pool area and the other is down the hall. Both have showers in them. If you have additional family members come there is a pull out couch in the family room that is private and attached to a bathroom that can be shut off from the rest of the house for added privacy or can be used as a second master with its own bathroom. It also has a separate outside entrance.
The airy vaulted ceiling in the living room makes for a wonderful open feeling. Our living room includes a LCD HD TV with DVD player. The furniture is all Tommy Bahama style furniture with that tropical feel. The dining table has a beautiful view of the pool, dock and water. The sliding doors open up to the pool and the view is fabulous from the living room over the pool and looking out on the water. Enjoy high speed wireless internet throughout the house.
If someone is watching a show in the living room and you want to watch something else, go to the family room that has a large couch and a love seat. Watch your favorite show on the HD TV in that room or let the kids play their games.

The kitchen has sliding glass doors that go out into the pool. It also has a pass through to the bar in the pool area. The granite bar surrounds the kitchen and give plenty of counter space with four bar stools that you can sit and eat at. The choices are many in the versatile home. There is a front load high efficiency washer and dryer in the utility room.

The pool area has a large gas grill and table and wicker chairs and table for your dinners by the pool. There are two wicker lounge chairs to lay around the pool or get that afternoon nap. There are two wicker chairs also off the master bedroom and another set off the kitchen. This it top notch furniture. You will not be disappointed.

There is a coconut tree out back that drops many a fresh coconut. Help yourself or take one home with you.

There are fishing poles in the closet that you can take down to the dock and catch Sheep head fish or other ocean fish off the dock.

There is also a pack-n-play in the closet and a car seat for older kids. You will find life vests and pool noodles in the closet along with other items to make your stay enjoyable. We constantly try to upgrade this house with more things, because we stay here with our family too!

Check our reviews. People love this house and you will too.

Car: Not Necessary

This house is close to the Esplande shops that include Starbucks, Cold Stone Creamery, CJs, Mangros and many more. Winn Dixie grocery store is walking distance and across the street from Esplande shops. Tiger Tail beach is just down the road. Farmers market is walking distance from this house. The other way down the sidewalk is Joey's pizza and more restaurants. This house is in a wonderful location right off the main road as you come in. To get to it you must drive past it and U turn back to it since there are palm trees in the median.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife and I have six kids and live in Indiana. I work as a financial consultant. Our family and our faith in Jesus is most important in our lives.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We fell in love with Marco in 2003. The first time we came over the bridge. So we purchased a condo in Sandcastle, but have wanted the freedom that comes with a house. This one came on the market and had the things we were looking for. The dock, water views, pool, vaulted ceilings, space for the grand kids and a great location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We all look forward to those wonderful sunsets and the beach environment along with a private pool, but this place also has a great location to walk to get a Starbucks or a late night Ice Cream or maybe groceries at Winn Dixie and a movie at the Red Box.
