Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have had our whole family to this place a few times and everyone loves it here. Plenty of room for our kids and grandkids. It's also the only place they want to go now. Great view on the bay side and only a 5 minute walk to the gulf side.

Amazing News Years Eve Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a truly unforgettable experience! The house overlooks an incredible bay where boats cruise by and a relaxing breeze blows and then it’s just a short walk or golf cart ride over to a beach with powder like white sand that you almost have all to yourself. The back water and beach fishing is really good. We caught our limit of snapper just a few minutes from the dock which is right next to the house. The beach and people are great being comparable to some places I have visited in the Caribbean. Since cars and combustible engines are not allowed the island is so peaceful and tranquil you won’t believe how much you will unwind.

The property itself has quite a bit of living area and is very comfortable to just wind down and enjoy life. Two separate houses allow a great way to provide some privacy to larger groups and the golf cart downstairs is great to jump in and explore the island.

Relax, renew, refresh

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a nice family getaway . We went for 4 days /3nights and should have stayed longer . We woke up to watch the sunrise over the bay from the front porch and walked to the beach to watch the sunsets every evening . The roof deck is an added bonus for stargazing . We were a party of 6 adults and 1 teenager and there was plenty of room for everyone . It was a nice relaxing mini island vacation .

The house is equipped with everything you need from kitchen supplies to linens . Beds were very comfy and the decor is super cute . I would recommend pre planning all meals as there are no markets or restaurants on the island. A Golf cart rental is a great idea , this way you can explore the whole island .

Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great Island to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets! The beach house has a great view of the bay and just a short walk to the beach. The beach house has all the accommodations needed and is very clean. My sister and her husband rented the other upper level house and that was also fantastic. This is a great place to stay if you have other friends or family wanting to vacation with you also. You can take the water taxi or bring your own boat and keep it at the dock. We rented a golf cart on the Island and explored the rest of the island that has pathways throughout. You can take long walks along the beautiful beach and collect shark's teethe. We rented on the 4th of July and went up to the rooftop and watched fireworks in all different directions. You can't go wrong vacationing here!!

What makes this house unique

Amazing views from nearly every window in the house. Roof-top deck is spectacular place to watch the sun rise or set. Star gazers will love the peacefulness of relaxing and watching the starfilled sky.

Wrap around porch and multi-level deck is great for enjoying your time in the open air. Just a 5 minute walk to the beach and only feet away from putting your toes into the water of the bay. We have a kayak for your use that you can have in the water in just 5 minutes.

Both kitchens have windows that face the bay and give you a spectacular view, you can even see the water from the living room couch.

Fully equipped, modern kitchen with every gadget you'll ever need.

Refrigerator with Ice maker and water dispenser are a great convenience.

Direct TV, movies, books, games, beach chairs and umbrella.


Car: not necessary

5 minute walk to the Beautiful White Sandy Beach of the Florida Gulf Coast.
