  • PERFECT Vacation!

    "This is a wonderful home - perfect for a big family. I'm disabled, and the ground-level bedrooms were a real blessing. Great view of the bay, and we caught lots of fish from the dock. Just across the street is a pathway to a gorgeous Gulf beach, so we had the best of both worlds - sunrise over the Bay, and sunset over the Gulf. The house was large, clean, comfortable, and well equipped for all our needs. We especially enjoyed the pool area, with its large, clean pool and its tables and chairs. Part of the patio is covered, so even when it rained, we could sit outdoors and enjoy the view. Owner was easy to work with, too. We'll definitely be returning to this slice of paradise next summer! Thanks so much for one of the best family vacations ever!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful find!

    "We were so pleased with this delightful cottage located in the old Longbeach Village. The cottage was accurately described and more than lived up to our expectations. The cottage has been well cared for and was comfortable for the two of us but also worked well when our daughter and adult granddaughter came to visit. The lanai, which is now more shaded and private than in the picture, was a nice surprise. Very spacious and filled with comfortable furniture. We spent warm days out there reading frequently. The kitchen works well and the bedrooms are nice size. The neighborhood is quiet but accessible to the many attractions in the area. You can reach a Publix or a drugstore in 10-12 minutes either to the north or south. The beautiful peacocks strolling up and down the street were a plus during our two month stay. Another plus are the owners who were very responsive and helpful both before and during our stay. We hated to leave to come back north!"
