4bedroom, 4bath with great access to the water, fly-in, beautiful accommodations
We call it the Fly-bridge because of the top floor feels like a fly-bridge of a yacht, looking out to the Gulf and down the Steinhatchee River. Space on the floating dock for your boat right at house with a short distance to Gulf makes water activities convenient. Scalloping, fishing (inshore or off), diving, kayaking, water sports are just a few things available in the area. You can clean your fish or scallops at the convenient cleaning station on the dock or have them cleaned in town. Just gathering on the dock or up on the porches with friends lends itself to a relaxing and peaceful get away. The house has three levels with 4beds/4baths, great living spaces with open kitchen. Rich mahogany stained wood and sliding glass doors invites you to enjoy the view and spend time with family and friends. You can see up and down the Steinhatchee River from the top floor, watch the boats returning from the days activities on the water or going out for their adventures, fishing on the flats or deep sea fishing, scalloping, diving, or just boating up the river.
The house has an open feel with plenty of space. The elevator makes it so accessible for groceries, luggage, or just moving from one level to the other. Ice maker under the house for ice chests. The top floor has a pool table and chess board table and DVD player for watching movies. The guest suite has a queen size murphy bed and a large sofa with mini refrigerator and shower/bath that can be closed from the main living room. The main level porch is comfortable with an outdoor table for 6 for outside dining. Relax on two rockers and Adirondacks over looking the river and the Gulf watching the sunset is priceless all year around. The sunsets on the Gulf can be spectacular.

About mary o. smith
The Smith's first started coming to Steinhatchee for scalloping only in the summers staying on their boat on the River and fell in love with people and the area. They found this property and came all year around. Trout and Red fishing were just added bonuses to scalloping. They designed and built the custom vacation home with steel and concrete beams. The structural design of the building with metal beams allowed for the open spaces on the interior. Panels of tall glass sliding doors allow for the wonderful view of the water. Inside you feel you are on the water.

Why mary o. smith chose Steinhatchee
One of the best views on the river. Large windows allow best view of the river and gulf. Open and lots of room to relax.
What makes this House unique
The boating is made easy with being so close to the channel to get to the Gulf. Public boat ramp just around the corner is a nice addition. The breeze from the Gulf is so inviting to relax in the shade and breeze on the hammock under the house is priceless. Conversational seating areas have been added for small intimate groups.

Amazing weekend in a beautiful home
We had a great stay in this home. The views are amazing and the house is beautiful and very accommodating for a large group. We are already planning our next trip!
Thank you so much and so glad you had a nice trip. The house has lots of gathering places.
Great Vacation Spot.
The home is very up to date and had every thing you need for comfort, meal prep and relaxation! The master bedroom and living room balconies are perfect for viewing the amazing sunset! The upstairs pool room was great for family time. Can't wait to return.
We love renters that can enjoy our house as much as we do. It's all about family time and plenty of space to relax, inside and out.
Paradise in Steinhatchee
We really enjoyed our stay in the FlyBridge. The sunset was awesome and we got the limit of scallops in the first hour and a half. The home was so beautiful and comfortable for our family. We will definitely be back to enjoy this home.
I can't take credit for the sunsets but they are spectacular and so glad you enjoyed the house. Hope you make this your destination spot every year. Don't forget about the great fishing all year around. Thank you so much for helping me secure the furniture. We just love renters that appreciate the atmosphere we have tried to make. Comfortable with a spectacular view.
Better than an all inclusive resort! This property has it all!
This is our 2nd year staying at this property! We've stayed at multiple other properties in Steinhatchee over the past 6 years and this is by far the most amazing one yet! The view, location and owner attention to detail make this property unique from any other in Steinhatchee.
Thank you so much. We really try to make sure our guests know we want them to have a great trip. We love feedback and great renters that appreciate our favorite place. Hope you come again.
Scalloping was so much fun! This house is perfectly located with the best views. Great Master bedroom. Spacious and wonderful floor plan for families. I would have given it five stars but we had trouble with the fans. Master fan too loud; bunk bed room fan too slow & warm. Best house overall.
I hate that a fan switch took a star :(. We want all our quests to be comfortable. All the bedrooms have remotes that are left in the rooms. Main level is only on/off on the wall. We have open contact with renters by phone 24/7. Wish they had called. I would have had a simple solution before it became a problem.
Great place. Spectacular view. Super owner. Already rebooked for next year. Any questions?
Thank you for staying and writing such a great review. Glad you had a great time.
Steinhatchee is a small quaint fishing village with a few restaurants with character. The water activities and the friends we have made Steinhatchee a place we want to come back to, over and over. The atmosphere of the area will keep you wanting more.
