Soothing island colors and comfortable 'beach' decor will welcome you as you enter the cottage. A wall of windows in the family room and kitchen provides a serene view of the waterway and private dock on the quiet East seawall of Nettles Island. It is not uncommon to see dolphins in the morning, many varieties of birds, fish jumping out of the water and occasionally a manatee. The private dock for fishing or leisure time is just a few steps out the back sliding door.
You are welcome to use our bikes, beach and fishing equipment and rent the 4 seat golf cart during your visit. On the table you will find House Rules and 'Things To Do' Notebooks with lots of helpful information about the house, Nettles Island Resort and the surrounding communities.
Nearby are numerous activities and services available when you are ready to explore the Nettles Island community: 2 pools, hot tubs, beach and Beach Club, Marina, Clubhouse/ Recreation Center including sports facilities, inside and outside games, Gym, Stores, Restaurants, etc... all within walking distance.
Nettles Island is a resort community encompassing a 24-hour security gated neighborhood development between the saltwater Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic ocean and located between the Ft. Pierce inlet to the north and the St. Lucie inlet to the south.
The private and unspoiled beach and Nettles Island Beach Club heated pool, snack bar and restrooms with showers is 4 blocks away. Walking, bike riding and golf carts are the most common forms of transportation in the community. You are welcome to rent our 4 seat golf cart for $125/week or $300/month.
Bring your boat to explore the lagoon, spoil islands and inlets. You are welcome to tie up to the dock which is equipped to accommodate a 24 ft. boat. The boat lift is unavailable.
You can walk or jog for miles and miles along the gently sloping wide beach seeing very few people or bring a flashlight to the beach at night in the summer months and often observe the giant sea turtles come ashore to dig a nest in the sand and lay their eggs...but no touching allowed by law.
The Neighborhood: In the commercial center you will find a marina, beachwear shop, restaurant and best of all, The Village Grocer. There you will find groceries, baked goods, sandwiches, beer, wine, bait, rent fishing gear, rent movies, buy souvenirs or just have a nice chat with the locals.
At the other end of the development along the waterway, you will find the activity clubhouse (Rec Center) and lots to do: tennis, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, boccie ball, basketball, tot playground, larger heated pool with 2 hot tubs, kiddie pool and restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, workout room, pool & ping pong tables, arcade games, computers with internet and more.
The kitchen has all the major appliances and is fully stocked for cooking and dining. The adjoining family room has a 37' flat screen TV with a DVD player.
The larger bedroom (sea glass room) includes a comfortable queen bed, a small bathroom with a nice size shower, and a 32' flat screen TV. The second bedroom (mermaid room) also has a queen bed. The third bedroom (sea turtle room) has 2 twin beds. All bedrooms have closets and dressers. All rooms have ceiling fans and central A/C and heat.
The Dock: Walk a few steps out the back door to get a closer look at the boats slowly motoring by or cast a line and catch fresh fish for dinner. The dock has a built in bench along with portable table and chairs which make it a great place to fish, eat, read and relax while taking in the view. In the cooler months, open up the sliding door to enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze throughout the house.
Upon check in please review the Guest Notebook. The house will be stocked with approximately 2 days worth of necessities: toilet paper, tissues, soaps, shampoo for the bathrooms and dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, trash bags and coffee in the kitchen. Stop in to the Village Grocer down the street or Publix supermarket to purchase food and necessities for the duration of your stay. All bed linens, towels (including beach towels) and kitchen towels are provided.
Please be aware that the seawall is very close to the back door. It is recommended that all renters, especially children, be able to swim. You will find a ladder and life ring on the dock, but these items may not be enough to prevent a drowning due to accidental fall ins.
Since we are close to the seawall, the cottage is up 4' feet; therefore, upon entering there are 8 steps up to the living area.
We know you will enjoy your stay. It is a wonderful place.

About Allison Warren
We have lived in south Florida since 1987 and purchased the property and built the cottage to use for our family fun in the summers near the beach. Since our 3 daughters are 'all grown up' we are happy to share the use of the house for others to enjoy. Nettles Island is the place for creating happy memories!
Allison Warren purchased this House in 1998
Why Allison Warren chose Nettles Island
We love the beautiful uncrowded and unspoiled beach as well as all the Nettles Island Resort has to offer.
What makes this House unique
The view and private dock on the waterway is very special. In the evenings we enjoy sitting on the dock bench with a glass of wine, sharing the day's events and watching the moon rise over the water with the sound of the ocean nearby.

Amazing fisherman's paradise
We had the most amazing time and the home was perfect for our fishing trip. We caught 16 different species off of the dock. Snook, flounder, sheepshead, catfish being a few of those species..a little secret...live shrimp on a ghost rig with size 1 hook dropped right around the dock. You will have a blast! We had dolphins cruise through daily as well and they just make you feel amazing every time you see them.. We had the golf cart which was perfect to hop into and go to the ocean and look for shells. It was amazing to walk the beach and enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean after fishing all day. The home was amazing as well! Very well kept and clean. I genuinely felt like I was at home and had everything I needed to be comfortable. Our little pups had an awesome time as well and it was a treat to have them with us. The beach is dog friendly which makes this place perfect for fishermen with furry kids. There were several other activities that were available to us and we just ran out of time. I guess that means we need to go back and explore some more. 😉
We loved the location, the cleanliness, waking to dolphins, fishing, we loved being at your home
The property is in a perfect location.
Pristine house in the perfect location!
All around great property! Bring yourself, some beach attire and you are good to go! This property is well appointed with just about anything you would need during your stay. The owners are readily available should you have any issues. Looking forward to staying again soon!

This is a fabulous home - all the amenities one could wish for on a Florida vacation. The owners pay attention to every little detail making for a fabulous vacation.
