A Little Bit of Heaven
"We just got home after spending two glorious weeks in Longboat Key. Our accommodations were beautiful and everything needed for a comfortable stay was provided. The house (our second time around) is always clean and maintained well. In addition, the host is always there to provide help and advice. What a glorious surprise we had one morning. We looked out of the patio windows and saw, instead of the usual egrets, an endless amount of various kinds of birds flying back and forth over the canal. This must have gone on for fifteen minutes. What a treat and what a gorgeous sight! It made a perfect vacation extra special.

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."

"We really enjoyed this beautiful home. It had everything we needed and is very well taking care of. We appreciated not having to buy paper goods and soaps. The walk to the beach is few minutes and we felt like we were on a gorgeous deserted island! very quiet and pristine. Saw some dolphins and all sorts of wild life. There is construction next door but you could barely hear anything and the builders were very courteous. The manager Jessica responds super quickly to any questions and is wonderful to deal with. We really had a good time and came back home very relaxed! Thank you again Jessica for making our stay very comfortable. Audrey & William"
