Property description

This 3/2, WiFi, pet friendly, home on the water is perfect for couples or families desiring a sub-tropical get-away any time of year. Water views and 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 a Guest Notebook with lots of helpful information about the house, Nettles Island Resort and the surrounding communities including maps, things to do, restaurants, etc

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, Restuarants, 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 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 with side flaps for $100/week or $250/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, bocce ball, basketball, tot playground, larger heated pool with 2 hot tub, kiddie pool and restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, workout room, pool & ping pong tables, arcade games, computers with internet and more.

The House: 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 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 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 and a surround sound system and cord for an iPod.

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.

The house is located in Nettles Island Resort which is on a barrier island named south Hutchinson Island in St. Lucie County Florida. The historic seaside towns of Jensen Beach, Stuart and Fort Pierce are easily accessed by short scenic drives. These quaint downtown areas provide casual shops, local restaurants, theaters, green markets and festivals.

Every Thursday night Jensen Beach has a fun street festival with live music, special exhibits from local artists and shop owners. It is a very family friendly event and well attended by local residents and tourists.

The local theature (Barn Theature) is 7 miles to the south which showcases good local talent well know for their entertaining comedy plays.

A few miles west on Ocean Drive you will find historic Stuart, another quaint historic town along the intercoastal waterway a little larger than Jensen Beach with a wide variety of locally owned shops, restuarants and the Lyric Theature know for bringing in 'big name' entertainment.

Travel north 11 miles north on Ocean Drive to another historic town of Ft Pierce which has a larger variety of museums, shops, restaurants, Sunrise Theature and state parks.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Nettles Island (Hutchinson Island South, FL, USA):
We love the beautiful uncrowded and unspoiled beach as well as all the Nettles Island resort has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view and access to the dock on the waterway is very special from inside the house and sitting or fishing on the dock. 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 some special evenings.
