Property description

This charming waterfront cottage fronts the Gulf of Mexico where you can indulge in the calming call of sea birds and drink-in unsurpassed open Gulf vistas. Imagine watching dolphin and manatee swim by the yard as you enjoy breakfast, or catch a couple of redfish for dinner, right off the private dock in your back yard.

This quaint 1032 square feet cottage has a split plan, with 2 bedrooms, and 2 en-suite baths, all on one level. The home is well maintained for your comfort, and has been newly painted and furnished throughout.

The living room features plenty of seating room on new comfy couches, around a cozy fireplace, with a crisp view of the flat panel television with DVD player.

The home is conveniently located just minutes from Fred Howard Beach (by car, bike, or kayak), the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks (authentic Greek restaurants and shopping), and is still less than an hour from Busch Gardens in Tampa, and less than two hours from all the Disney and Universal theme park attractions in Orlando.

The home comes with two kayaks and two bikes for your full enjoyment.

Come and relax, and have some fun!
