Amazing pool and grounds!
We loved our stay at this house. The pool and grounds are even better than the photos. Lots of different palm species and many nice places to sit and relax with privacy and water views. The pool is one of the best we've seen and the water was very warm, so we could swim even on cool days or early. Inside, the house has big open floor plan around the kitchen. Nice decorations and comfortable beds/baths. Would definitely recommend and return.
Beautiful & Relaxing
We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. As soon as we walked in we felt right at home. The house is huge and decorated beautifully. It’s right on the water and we had the perfect view for sunset. The outdoor living area is incredible. We felt like we were staying at a mini-resort. The pool is lagoon-style with zero entry & surrounded by bamboo & palm trees. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and watched the sunset right on the water. Beds are comfy, kitchen is fully equipped. We hope to get back to Casa Encantada in the future!
I was looking for a special place to spend the holidays with my 4 adult children. This fit the bill perfectly. There was so much to do with the pool, kayaks, ping pong and pool table, that we found little need to go elsewhere for entertainment. The grounds are magnificent and I loved roaming around examining the tropical plants or sitting in a rocking chair next to the water. It was an experience I’ll treasure always.
This property was fantastic. It was the most well appointed property we have ever stayed in, there was absolutely everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The pool was fantastic even better than the pictures. The bed was very comfortable as was all of the furniture. We enjoyed all of the indoor and outdoor spaces .
We also rented the boat and had a great time out in the bay. Overall this was a 5 star stay, we would definitely stay here again.
Picturesque Wedding Location
This was the perfect location for an intimate wedding and was everything my wife and I envisioned for our special day. It felt like we had a mini beach resort all to ourselves. Captain Julie and Pamela were incredibly easy to work with and shared the same excitement for our wedding celebration. If you are planning on having a special event here, we highly recommend having time to enjoy the house and property before and after the event because there are so many things to do and enjoy here! The kitchen was well-equipped and the overall layout of the house allowed us to spend quality time with our family and friends. If you are looking for a place to create special memories with your loved ones, this is it!

About Julie Ellis/Captain Julie
I grew up on the panhandle of Florida where I learned to love salt water and the lifestyle if offers. After moving to Atlanta, where I lived for 30 years, we bought a house in Panama City where we spent a lot of time. In 2008 we moved to the central gulf coast to get back to the old Florida lifestyle. We found Palmetto and Bradenton like going back in time... Florida the way it was in the 60's.
Julie Ellis/Captain Julie purchased this House in 2008
Why Julie Ellis/Captain Julie chose Palmetto
We are pet friendly. We offer a 24 ft boat option. We are in a small, friendly town that is not on the tourist map. This home is unique. There are not many vacation spots you can visit that are on 200 feet of open water, facing west, and home to manatees, dolphin and every kind of seabird you can name. Unlike most rentals in the area, you have total privacy surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. No neighbors in your space, just solitude in a relaxing environment. No sharing the pool or beach. If you want to be around others, just jump in the car and arrive at Anna Maria in minutes. The house is spacious with many choices of where to spend your time and never feels crowded with your other guests. Sunsets are a must!
What makes this House unique
24 ft. Hurricane deck boat option. Pet friendly. Private, secluded on 200 feet of open water. There are a lot of local water front restaurants. Your only problem when staying at Casa Encantada is dragging yourself outside of its gated grounds because there is so much to do and see within its gates. Captain Julie provides kayaks, a hammock under the enormous banyan tree, and snorkel equipment. When staying at Casa Encantada, you share only with dolphins, manatee, herons, egrets, spoonbill rosettes, pelicans, sea gulls, and ospreys! Flounders, red fish, and snook also arrive via your fish hook! So be sure to bring your rod and reel! If you do leave Casa Encantada, visit all the area has to offer from beach side restaurants to parks and beach entertainment spots. Casa Encantada has everything you need to make this your most wonderful beach vacation ever!
