Property description

THE INSTANT QUOTE ON THIS SITE DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY FOR HIGH (WINTER ) SEASON. PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT ACTUAL COSTS.

This quaint older eclectic cottage is located on the mile wide Indian River a little over a mile north of Historic and Quaint Jensen Beach, Florida. Views of the river from inside your cottage. Walk outside the house across the road for a picnic in the palm tree lined riverside beach. (Not for swimming) Take a walk out onto the 160ft. dock for a 360 degree view for sunrises and sunsets, fishing, or tying up your boat. You can see dolphins and manatees from the dock as well as many kinds of shore birds. Pelicans, Herons, Turns, and gulls are common. Some times of the year there are bait runs and you can see Tarpon and Snook smashing into the schools of mullet.

Inside the cottage are new beds and furniture. The main bedroom has a memory foam queen and the guest room has two memory foam twins. You also have central air conditioning and heat. The kitchen has a refrigerator, microwave, dish washer, full size stove & oven, coffee maker, toaster and most of the kitchen utensils and pots & pans that you will need. It also comes with a full size washer and dryer. The cottage has an older style small bathroom with tub, sink, & toilet. Adjacent to the main bedroom is a large 1/2 bath and dressing room. There is ample parking for 2 cars and also plenty of room for a boat and trailer in the back.

You also get wireless internet and satellite TV with a flat screen TV in the living room. A small entertainment center plays Radio and CD's or you can plug in your MP3 player. (Good for background music - Not a high powered unit)

Because of the hard wood floors and leather furniture we have a no (Large) pet policy and also a no smoking policy inside the cottage. If you have a smaller dog or cat please call for discussion. Renter will be asked to board pet if pet is barking excessively or if renter is not cleaning up after pet goes outdoors.

If you have a boat your options are endless from fishing to water sports to just sightseeing. The 'SandBar' at the inlet on the weekend is always a great place to go by boat. Weather permitting there is offshore and inshore fishing, there are reefs for snorkeling and diving. There are a handful of restaurants that you can get to in your boat.

In all of its glory there are a few drawbacks that you need to be aware of. First, as stated, there is a road between your cottage and the river. At certain times of the day, particularly early morning and after work there can be a lot of traffic. If you open the windows there can be some road noise but most people keep the windows closed and use the AC. The close proximity to the river and beach and the views make it all worth while. The second thing is that the Indian River is a living and breathing ecosystem with grass beds and sand bars. When the weather gets rough the waves can wash grass and sea weed onto the beach so the beach is not always white and pristine. There can also be an odor from the seaweed and grass but this does not happen very often. The dock is available to tie up a small boat (up to 25 ft. ) but certain times of the year the water in the mile wide river can be very rough. To play it safe it is best to have the boat out of the water at night.

Jensen Beach Florida is a small eclectic town located on the mile wide Indian River on the east coast of Florida. Hutchinson Island, the 20 mile long barrier island, is just a couple miles away via a free high rise bridge and has numerous beach access points and beautiful beaches. The Indian River is used for boating, fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and many other water based activities. By water the St. Lucie Inlet with access to the Atlantic Ocean is only 8 miles to the south giving access to offshore boating, fishing and diving.

Jensen Beach is located about 100 miles north of Miami and 40 miles north of West Palm Beach which has our closest major Airport as well as a nice Zoo. Orlando with Disney World, Sea World and Universal are about 130 miles to the north. (About 2 hrs.)

From our cottage the beautiful sandy ocean beach is only 2.75 miles away. Boat ramps just 1 mile. Public grocery shopping is just 1.5 miles and a large mall with 16 movie theater is only 4.25 miles. Famous Conchy Joe's Bar & Restaurant is only .65 miles. The Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House is also on the water and just 2.5 miles to the south. The town of Jensen Beach with Restaurants and shops is only 1 1/4 mile. Jammin' Jensen every Thursday night is always fun. Historic downtown Stuart Florida is just 6.5 miles away. With in a short distance there are many great restaurants and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. There are museums and the 100+ year old last of its kind House of Refuge to visit. There are more things to do in an hours drive than can be listed on this page.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are John & Dot Whiticar. I was born and raised in this area and have live here most of my life. (63 years). The Indian River is to the east of the cottage. My wife Dot and I live 300 ft. west in a wooded area behind the cottage. We just recently purchased the property and riverfront cottage which now gives us access to the beautiful beach and wonderful dock.

Why the Owner Chose Jensen Beach:
I have lived off and on in Jensen Beach for over 40 years. We enjoy the old Florida feel and eclectic atmosphere. Living on the river is dynamic and ever changing. We feel remote but are right in the middle of things. A beautiful place to live.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being on the water and being able to wake up and watch the sun rise over the Indian River. A 5 minute ride to the beach. Having a cocktail on the dock at the end of a long day watching the pelicans fly home and the sun set. Feeling that wonderful breeze.
