Private Island...A Fishermans Paradise! Time To Kick Back, Relax, And Get Unplugged!!! Please be aware that this is a boat access only island! Located in the beautiful backwaters of Ozello, Florida. The land of a thousand islands. Come experience some of Florida's best backwater fishing with thousands of mangrove islands to explore. Whether by motor boat, (shallow draft only),kayak, or canoe it is fishing at its finest. Please be aware that these waters are quite shallow and channels are not marked so there is a lot of exploring you can do but it must be done with caution. On any day you could be catching everything from snook, redfish to trout, with the occasional flounder and sheepshead. Access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes for some inshore or offshore fishing, where you are likely to catch grouper, cobia, or even the King of fish, the tarpon! .And lets not forget scalloping when in season. Here in citrus county we have some of the most plentiful scallop grounds in the state. Or maybe you just want to take a cruise to see some of the most beautiful sunsets on the nature coast.The Island house offers you this and much more. You can even catch your own blue crab right off the dock or the shoreline.
Once again, please be aware that this is a boat or watercraft vessel access only Island. There is no other access unless you care to take a swim! Hahaha! Free county boat launch is available within minutes of the Island at the Ozello Community Park,this is where you will park your vehicles during your stay. The address of the park is 398 N. Pirate Pt. Crystal River. All vacationers will then be escorted to the Island for the first trip so that you will know the track to get there and back again. After a short ride you will moor up at the dock and walk up the path to the house. The stairway carries you to the open deck ( uncovered ) that is perfect for grilling out, sunbathing, or just having a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise. The deck wraps around the front of the house this is under cover so you may also relax after a long day and enjoy a nice ice cold beverage and listen to some music on the stereo while enjoying the beautiful scenery that makes up Ozello, be sure to be on the look out for manatees and dolphins that on almost any given day the dolphin can be seen schooling or just playing around.
Enter the double doors to take you inside to the cozy living room where you can just kick back and relax in the air conditioning Although there is a television there is no cable, therefore no wifi, hence getting unplugged. You will have cell service so calls can be made but watch out for that data usage. There is an antenna and it picks up plenty of stations to watch also a DVD player if you want to bring movies.The kitchen is fully stocked and should have all the equipment you need for preparing meals. There are two bedrooms one king and one queen that each have their own heat and air units. There is one bathroom with tub and wraparound shower. Upstairs is the loft where we have a daybed with a trundle for two sleeping spaces. Also a rocker if you would like to just kick back and read a book in the quiet of the loft.
Ground level we have a small fire pit for those who like to have a small campfire weather permitting. Firewood available in the woodpile but feel free to bring some with you if you have the ability to do so. Also we have a 20x20 metal canopy with a picnic table that provides shade while you enjoy a picnic lunch.
No boat? No problem. We have partnered up with a local charter boat captain who would love to take you fishing for an additional cost.
So come enjoy paradise and make your own memories.
