  • An UNFORGETTABLE Vacation in a Tree House on an Island

    "Our family spent a week on Jewfish Island and this will likely not soon be forgotten. On our way home we asked of all the amazing vacations we have taken around the world where would this rank and both our kids placed it first or second. We lived in the area previously prior to moving to the Carolina's. We knew a secluded island house, with limited television, intermittent wifi (only via your own connection) would be exactly what our family needed. Unplugging from the world around you to take in the beautiful Sarasota Bay, the Island life, nature and the simpler things was such a blessing. Dolphins, manatees, and an array of fish frolicked by the dock daily. We had use of a kayak and canoe which added to our adventure. We also rented a boat so we could cruise to dinner or lunch on occasion. Just outside this little tree house gem is an amazing dock which you must spend time on. The other side of the island boasts fun in the sun on the sandbar where boats like to hang out so you can enjoy people watching, floating, and it is a great place to find shells and sea life. Afterwards, you can walk back over to your nice secluded side and say ahh. Jordan the property manager is an absolutely top notch host. He goes out of his way when you arrive to help with your luggage and directions. Likewise, Patricia the homeowner is fantastic. Both ensure your stay will be unbelievable and you are happy while there. What I do recommend for future renters... I highly recommend renting a boat. The home does have 3 levels of a gorgeous floating staircase. So mommies that have young children keep this in mind. All bedrooms are open to enjoy the incredible views of the Sarasota Bay from the tree tops. Room dividers are available in the closets for privacy. We did not use them as it was AMAZING open. The home is in the TREES on a gorgeous ISLAND in FL! This is a positive. This also means there are some bugs. So make sure you bring your protection and if you open a slider or door sometimes one or two my fly in. It is to be expected. Wear shoes to your private beaches. Make sure to catch a sunrise and a sunset. You will never forget either. Be certain to enjoy the dock at night as well. Incredible what you will see in the water. The home is stocked with everything you will need. We will definitely be back if possible. We can't give enough praise. Jordan, Pat and Seashell Island Retreat (which we call the Island Treehouse) is in our hearts forever."

  • enjoyed our visit

    "We had a wonderful relaxing week in this beautiful home! We enjoyed the pool and the long stretch of gorgeous beach. There are so many things to do in the area and the weather was perfect. The house is so comfortable and well equipped that we felt at home from the first day and are hoping to be back soon."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "My husband and I recently returned from our Spring getaway. We live in Central FL, but, need to visit the beach several times a year. We found the perfect cottage to enjoy the beach, restaurants and nearby attractions. The cottage is like your home away from home. We found the cottage to be very clean, it has every appliance you would need, a wonderful private patio, and it is located on a very quiet street in The Village of Longboat Key. This was our second visit to the "cottage" and we are looking forward to returning in the fall. Thank you Rusty and Christine for being wonderful hosts and providing us with a home away from home."
