About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
The apartment 'tree house' is nestled amongst hundred year old oaks on two acres which include a citrus grove and pond. When in season, you can enjoy tree ripened mangoes and citrus. While having breakfast on the porch, you'll have a beautiful view of the Manatee River. In the evening, watching the sunset while having cocktails by the fire will provide a chance to see the manatees swim past the boat dock, or you may choose to watch the sunset from the Jacuzzi.
We are 1 1/2 hours from Disney World, and hour from Busch Gardens and Mote Marine, a world class aquamarine research facility which gives tours.
