  • 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."

  • Quiet and Cozy Vacation

    "I really like this cottage. It is exactly as listed. The one bedroom and one bathroom was perfect. The location is good. Very close to beach once I found the access. It is hidden a little (which is a good thing) so it took me a few minutes to find it. Close to restaurants and only a 5 mile easy drive to St Armand's Circle which is sometimes impossible to get to from the mainland. I would park at the edge of the circle and just wander around the stores. The cottage is clean and has everything you will need for a nice stay. I wish there was a crock pot. I left a small french press coffee maker. I can't think of one negative thing to say about my stay. Even during Hermine storm I have to say I slept right through it on the comfortable king size bed. I will be back for sure. Nancy"

  • Private oasis

    "My husband and I usually rent condos but decided to rent a home this year. We have stayed on Anna Maria Island, specifically Bradenton Beach, in the past. We were very pleased with this home and it's location in Longboat Key Village. The home is nicely upgraded and well furnished. There were condiments and spices available that we have always had to purchase at other rentals. The screened in lanai was my favorite spot as it made me feel as if I was in a treehouse with all of the lush landscaping. The pool area is nicely done although at this time of the year there is little sun that shines on the pool due to the palm trees. But the beach is just a few blocks away so we got the best of both worlds. The neighborhood is quiet and a great area to walk and ride bikes, and we saw many people walking their dogs. We will definitely consider renting this home again when we return to this area."
