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.

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.

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.

Family Getaway

We had no idea there was such a wonderful island house on one of our local islands in Manatee County. Spent the weekend with my family for Father's Day and built some great memories with beautiful views of the inter-coastal and Sarasota Bay. Activities included using the kayak and canoe provided with the home, fishing the local grass flats, and grilling and entertaining friends and family that we picked up in our boat at the nearby boat ramp. The house included two master bedrooms on the third floor with a view of the sunrise and a very spacious floor plan. I would highly recommend this island home and Pat the owner was very helpful and accommodating.

Beautiful, relaxing stay

My family spent 6 peaceful, relaxing days at this beautiful location. Pat was very friendly and helpful with instructions, suggestions, and questons. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room. The house was lovely and the rooms clean and comfortable. Most mornings we sat on the pier to watch the beautiful sunrise. Evenings we sat on the pier to fish and watch the fish jump out of the water. Lots of waterlife there. Saw dolphin and even had manatee playing by the pier one afternoon. A flock of roseate (pink) spoonbills flew in most nights at dusk to feed. Plenty of other birdlife also. Enjoyed using the boat to go to the sandbars and beaches. Beer Can Beach was great for seashelling, swimming, and walking. Took some day trips that were near by: rode the Long Boat Key trolley to shop at St. Armands Circle, also went out to eat and take in some shops in Bradenton Beach.

I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, relaxing environment. There are plenty of places nearby to eat with plenty of activities to choose from (boating, fishing, swimming, etc...). The island is very close to land so its a quick ride to take daytrips to other locations.

Our family spent 5 days over Easter, 2012 at this fabulous home. The accommodations were exactly as described and pictured on the website. Everything was readily available and Pat was extremely helpful with planning, boat rental, and other details. The view was awesome and the peacefulness of the island was just what we were looking for. We used the canoe and the kayak and the beach area was a favorite of everyone since we were the only people on it! The sandbar area also provided fun in the sun! Definitely a place we would recommend and return to in the future! Thanks Pat!

Wonderful Stay

Myself, my husband and several other couples rented this amazing property in June. The weather was perfect. The home was beautiful and the owner was very hospitable. The location is superb, only available by boat. The experience was much more than what was expected. You could sit on the dock and fish or just sit and admire wildlife.(dolphins, bonnet head sharks, stingrays, and many species of fish and crabs). There is an amazing sandbar on the side of the island that we enjoyed swimming, crabbing, and fishing is. The was the most relaxing vacation ever. We will be doing this again every year.

My wife's family vacationed here over memorial day weekend. My family had a great time. There are tarpon just offshore, beautiful sunsets and sunrises and great fishing from the dock. The only downside is the openness of the home. If you bring a group, make sure everyone gets along really well because the home is very open. I loved the home. Pat is a nice host and she does try and help the renter out when she can. My son caught stone crab, pass crab and even blue crab every day. I loved it there and if i can go again with a smaller group, i would do it again every year.
