About the property

If You Like Water, This Is It - Million Dollar Views from the House + the Beach!

With grand views of the intracoastal from both floors, you can watch the water, dolphins, and boating activities surrounding you all day long. You can even see the most amazing sunsets from your very own private dock or screened porch, and see the sun rise at the beach across the street! This paradise of a two-story waterfront home is a great getaway for a couple and also perfect for families or two couples - each floor is its own separate retreat complete with living areas with 55" LED TVs, strong WiFi, large bedrooms, bar/lounge areas, coffee stations, outdoor living areas and full baths. You can even fish right from the private dock - fishing poles, two kayaks, and two paddle boards are included for your use during your stay. The kayaks and paddle boards are easily launched just steps from the house.

The home is located in the heart of Hutchinson Island, so you can walk to restaurants, stores, and the private neighborhood beach and pool right on the ocean. And no need to walk to the intracoastal to watch the boats go by, because you can watch that from your own house! Amazing views from the screened patio, million dollar views from the living room and the kitchen. And then there's the "dolphin bar" on the first floor right on the water! Dolphins frolic and swim by, and pelicans land on the dock and fly by the windows all day. And the guest room is located downstairs with its own bath, and kitchen area with a refrigerator and sink. The master bedroom is located on the second floor with the living room and large gourmet kitchen. You'll enjoy a king-size pillow top mattress and Egyptian cotton sheets in your Caribbean sleigh bed. The kitchen is equipped with Subzero refrigerator and freezer separate built-ins. There is also an additional prep sink on the kitchen island to watch the water activities while preparing dinner. The Dacor oven has both conventional and convection settings, and the flat cooktop has five burners. It is a very open floorplan for coastal living, and the second floor includes a screened in patio off of the kitchen and living room.

There is high-speed cable and wifi throughout the house and a 55" LED HDTV television in the living room as well as downstairs in the bar/lounge.

The sunset views are absolutely amazing from the house, and the ocean is just across the street for watching the sunrise. The home is located in a community with a large private beach, tiki hut, heated pool, shuffle board, and a clubhouse with a fitness center, pool tables, and a library. There are club activities like parties, bingo, water aerobics in the pool during the winter and yoga on the beach in the clubhouse twice a week all year. The pool is right on the beach with a resort feel -- multiple lounge chairs, tables with bench seating, and umbrellas. And there are pool floats, fun noodles, and beach gear provided for you at the house.

Back at the house, the bar on the first floor leads out to a large outdoor sitting area right on the water! Or, you can go out on the private 100 foot dock and take in the scenery sitting on Adirondack chairs to catch the views.

You can walk to great restaurants that are located just outside the community: Pietro's on the Ocean for lunch or dinner with a large outside deck directly on the Atlantic Ocean for casual dining with a live band some evenings, or indoors with another bar or gourmet dining; The Magic Oyster for dinner or happy hour that includes $1 oysters. There is also a convenience store to walk to with a deli, another casual deli/ice cream shop, and the Marriott across the street has a Starbucks cafe with beakfast and a tiki bar with lunch. There are lots of other restaurants very nearby, or you can choose to barbecue on the gas grill located on the back patio.

We just bought this home in early 2016 and have outfitted it like our own vacation home, because it is! We live nearby and when we do not have guests enjoying the house, we spend the weekend having our own relaxing mini vacation.

Please note that there is an HOA application for stays greater than 14 days and it includes a background check.

About Kathleen Freihofer

We purchased this property in January 2016 as our weekend home. It is furnished and treated as our own weekend retreat, and have decided to share it as a vacation rental for others to enjoy when we are not enjoying it ourselves.

Another amazing vacation at the river mansion!!! We absolutely love it!!! I wish we were still there!!! There are no words for what this place means to us!!! Our family enjoys spending time together here! Exploring the island, driving the golf cart to the beach and pool and catching sharks off the dock makes for a perfect family vacation!!!

Great water views and sunsets. Comfortable home, good pool and amazing beach and water.

  • 5 of 5

This home has two floors each with a living room, TV, Bar, water views and bathrooms. Kitchen is well equipped with two sinks, freezer, fridge, DW and everything you need to eat in. The view of the inter coastal is great and the sunsets were fab. Clean, comfortable with a nice community pool and an even better beach and great turquoise Atlantic water. We swam every day. We would return in a minute when we next can.

Saw dolfins out front in the river 3 out of 7 days, so peaceful! Our first impression was spot on for the entire stay, a little piece of heaven. We will be back to this or another one of Kate's properties. Can't recommend enough!
