Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Our family after many trips to Florida exploring the north, south, east and west fell in love with this beautiful place where the dolphins play and the beach life is so relaxing. There's much to do within walking distance shops, restaurants, the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Johns Pass:
Great views, private dock with dolphins in the back yard and occasionally a manatee. Fishing from the dock at night. Walking down to the infamous boardwalk for some live music and some eats. Stoll over the bridge to Treasure Island stop by Gators to catch the game or dancing. Walking down to the gulf on the white sandy beach's for sunset's. Sitting in the covered Lanai watching the wild life and the amazing views, the parades of boats going by heading out into the gulf of Mexico.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private dock with dolphins in the back yard and occasionally a manatee. Every time we're there we have seen dolphins come by to say hi. Great views from the bed in the master and the covered Lanai. Onsite manager very knowledgeable and helpful.
