About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 12)

This spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bath house sleeps 12 (no bunkbeds, foldouts or blow ups), has 2 full kitchens and a large screened porch and heated pool. Located on a double lot at the end of a canal, this property features a 20’ floating dock with 16' addition kayak launch/dock for 36' total with boat parking on both sides, (boat lift for owners use only). There is also a fish cleaning station, a beautiful deck with a view down the whole canal, and a large fenced yard.

Completely remodeled and furnished, this house has 2 fully stocked kitchens. The main kitchen opens onto a huge living room with fireplace and a 50 inch TV. A large island and open plan means that the cook never gets left out of the fun. The second kitchen is located at the back of the house, near the porch and pool. Perfect for preparing side dishes when grilling out or for late night snacks poolside.

Speaking of poolside…. Newly installed electric heat pump keeps pool temp in the 80's provided that outside air temperature is 55 or above. Our screened porch is awesome! Huge (17’ x 43’) carpeted area right beside the pool has plenty of seating, full size pool table, electronic dart board and a 70” TV. There is also a 40" TV that can be turned into pool area to watch while you swim. Small 3rd refrigerator for beverages. Large lighted grill can handle enough food for large groups. Porch has vinyl panels that can be closed to keep out wind or rain if needed. We’re sure you will be spending a lot of time out here!

For those of you who like to work out, we have a gym set up in the garage. Equipment includes: inversion table, recumbent bike, Gazelle, Bow Flex, and Elliptical Exerciser.

For fresh air and sunshine lovers, we have 6 kayaks and 2 bicycles. House is just a short walk to the Archeological Park. Fish off our seawall or just sit and watch for manatees, otters, alligators and even dolphins.

Bad weather keeping you in the house? In addition to the pool table on porch, we also have plenty of books, games and puzzles. There is a game table in the 2nd kitchen that is also a bumper pool table. With WiFi and 9 TV’s there should be enough to keep all entertained.

We know that you like the people you are vacationing with but you might want a little space sometimes. Hall door closes to split the house if you want. Perfect for corporate retreats, blended families, family reunions or amicable ex’s . Banish teenager to the back; get a little time away from the in-laws; Early-birds on one end and night-owls on the other. This house will work for everyone!

The house has plenty of room for 12 guests. The heated pool and Florida room are AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! We had a large group of kids/parents/grandparents stay for a week at this charming home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and found that we had the most fun just hanging out at this wonderful property! We didnt expect to see any manatees as we were there in April , but we ventured into the river via the provided kayaks and found multiple manatees to watch and even touch, along with a couple of alligators and many really cool birds. The pool and Florida room open up to make one giant room of fun! There is plenty of refrigerator and freezer space. The 2 kitchens came in handy when prepping/cooking for such a large group. This house was made for entertainment and won't dissapoint!!

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

You won’t find a better house to stay in especially if you are traveling with a large group or extended family. Everything you can think of is provided and the owners are easily accessible. I had quite a few questions and they always got back to me quickly. The house was super clean and the games room and pool were awesome. Sitting overlooking the canal is beautiful. We saw an otter eating breakfast one day and an alligator the next. Only suggestion if you sit out at night, is to use the fans provided for the bugs. The damage deposit is immediately refunded as well. We absolutely loved our stay here and would be back. Although we never met the hosts personally, by the end of the week it felt like emailing friends!

Plenty to do and tons of space.

  • 5 of 5

Game room is a bonus. Kayaks kept us from having the added expense of renting them. Split layout with master bedroom shared bath and kids’ room on one side and 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, and second small kitchen on the other. Fishing wasn’t plentiful from the dock but kayak fishing was good. Close to downtown. Three Sisters Spring is 10 minutes drive. We had an alligator swimming by the dock one night (not scary as the sea wall was too high for it to climb) and a river otter swimming by the dock another day. Kids enjoyed their vacation and parents were able to do as they pleased.

Great house for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We ended up having another family of 5 join us for part of the stay. 4 adults and 5 teenage boys. There was so much for boys to do. We also had local friends visiting in the evenings, plenty of space. Owner was very accommodating and easy to get in touch with. We will definitely be back again.
