Imagine relaxing and watching marine life (often dolphins and manatees) and birds from your huge private deck as the spectacular sunsets reflect on the preserve-like bay.YOUR PRIVATE POOL! The pool is huge, private and solar heated. Maybe you pulled up to the dock/lift in your own boat. It doesn't get any better than this! There are upper and lower screened decks for unobstructed bay and canal views. It's on a quiet and panoramic point. UPSTAIRS- 2 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms upstairs, open kitchen / living room area, separate dining room used for dining, games or WIFI computer desk. Phone is also located here with free calls to all of U.S. and Canada. (Board games provided also). The upstairs is laid out like this- master suite has attached private bathroom walk-in closet and TV. The guest bedroom has the bathroom across from it. DOWNSTAIRS- now descend the outside poolside large stairway to level below for a completely separate huge bedroom. It is large enough for a single pull out couch and sitting area. Bedroom has TV, phone and sliding glass doors for great pool and bay views. Step out of bedroom to bathroom where laundry tub, washer & dryer are located. On this level is also an outdoor kitchen! With glass stove top, sink and mini refrigerator. This makes it ideal for privacy for couples traveling together, teenagers and those who don't like stairs. On this level are also your beach equipment, pool floats and coolers. Bike to beach with BIKES (PROVIDED) or Canoe (PROVIDED) or rent a kayak or pontoon boat. Easy access to Gulf thru Wiggins Pass. Huge pool is solar heated making the pool 10F+ degrees more than the Gulf of Mexico ocean waters at any time of year. So you can add a minimum of 10F+ degrees to what NOA (National Oceanenic Agency) says are average temperatures. And by average temps they, of course, are including night time too.

Hello everyone! That's me several years ago in Hawaii.
Born in CN, raised in N.E. Georgia, lived in England, high school in New Jersey, college years in MA. After college I lived in Europe, Key West and Naples FL. Then moved to Hawaii. Aging parents in Florida drew me back to this great state where I continued in the housing business. This is the only house I have left after having sold the rest recently. So StarBay gets my full attention and every decorating idea I come across! Please see my other Homeaway listings in Bonita 173315. In Naples condo by the month 3669521. Thanks!
Donna Andrews purchased this house in 2000
When the opportunity came up to purchase this property in 2000 I jumped on it! It's my dream to own waterfront and this property is waterfront, waterfront, waterfront. 120' of canal, and 220' of bayfront. Plus it had a huge pool. Really a no brainer and we haven't looked back since!
There's so many separate and unique living areas. Say you want to relax with your morning cup of coffee. Do you sit at the large kitchen table and take in the canal and bay views and watch the large flat screen TV? Or do you sit in the separate dining room with bay views and check your email? Or do you relax at the outside deck dining table overlooking the pool, bay and canal? Wait! There's one more. Maybe you take your coffee and enjoy watching the kids in the pool from the poolside dining table. Are you tired from relaxing yet?
Located at the end of the street the property is on a point or peninsula. The building is surrounded by salt water. Little Hickory Bay is in front with expansive bay and mangrove views facing west for great sunsets from your decks and all rooms except for one quest bedroom. Wide canal is on side with the 90' dock for fishing. Approx.1 mile to beach.
Other Activities: Rent on beach- jet skis, paddle boats, sail boats, paddle boards..or parasail. Rent in the bay- pontoon boats. Close by dine-in movies,walk to miniture golf, or walk to yoga classes at 2 different locations! Walk to bait shop for your fishing license by the week and rent equipment there to catch your dinner. Walk to the 7-11 convenience store for morning newpaper or that last minute botlle of wine. Convenient YET quiet and away from it all!
I really enjoy driving north along the beach and inlets thru Lover's Key State Park, thru Ft Myers Beach onto the causeway taking you to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Then stopping for lunch at the famous 'Bubble Room' a step back into childhood.
Traveling south- I love to stroll 5th Avenue in Naples of late European style outdoor dining and visit the galleries and then Naples Pier.
Golf: These are just some of the Public Courses in the Area. South West Florida- Golf Capital of the World! Many of the courses below are within 3 miles of your vacation rental.
