Nestled among the pines is your Island Escape on a private island on beautiful Sarasota Bay reached only by boat. This light and airy home features great views.
There's plenty of room to relax with 3 levels of decks, a large dining room with sliding doors out to the large furnished deck with a gas grill at the ready. With table and chairs around the corners of the main deck there's ample space to sometimes get away from the group for quiet conversations or solitary contemplation. Here you will experience the most beautiful sunrises and changing colors of the bay throughout the day. The home comfortably accommodates 8 people in three bedrooms and bonus rooms with king, queen, twin beds, queen hideabed and queen futon.
This inviting home has large rooms, fully equipped open view kitchen with all appliances and a complete laundry setup.
New digital HDTV,Direct TV,dvd,stero/CD/radio/tape player, boardgames, puzzles,& cards for entertainment are available as well. Swim, sunbathe, go shelling or fish off the private dock. We have a small sandy area and, at low tide available by boat, a nearby huge flat sandbar where the children love to play.
You can catch fish right from the dock! Kayak, canoe and snorkle equipment included for fun..even a set of horseshoes for the fellows to play ; then enjoy the warm water shower on the lower deck. There are wide paths for exploring down the length of the island under overhanging trees. Watch for great blue herons, snowy white egrets,commorants,pelicans, rossette spoonbills, woodpeckers and an occasional owl.
You might even spot one of our resident raccoons!
The dolphin come gliding by when the tide comes in, eager to get their share of the fresh fish swept in with the tide! They dive and feed right across from our dock. and often a very large manatee will quietly go by, occasionally with a young one along.
GET BACK TO NATURE...enjoy it all!!
These are the memories your family members will share for years to come.

PRIVATE DOCKS. PRIVATE PARKING ON MAINLAND.
We saw friends traveling for days to go on vacation so when we were offered the chance to buy the land on a private island we jumped at the chance. We built this home in 1992 as a family getaway. Since we grew up near the Adirondack Mts. and had many great camping trips there, we wanted to leave our land unspoiled and hidden by the surrounding trees. When you approach the house and then go up the floating staircase to the main floor it's like being up in the northern woods amongst the trees. Away from it all, complete peace. and privacy.
