'SNEAD ISLAND TREE HOUSE' WATERFRONT APARTMENT ON 2 ACRE LOT

Palmetto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is a unique piece of old Florida on Snead Island. We remodeled the apartment in 1997 with hickory floors in the living/dining room. The kitchen has hickory cabinets with granite countertops and a slate floor which flows into the bathroom. The bedroom is carpeted and has a select comfort queen size bed with cherry furniture, including a desk, TV and VCR. Living room and bedroom have cathedral ceilings and clear-story windows. Living room has plenty of seating to enjoy the 46' HD TV, DVD, VCR or CD players, along with a gorgeous view. New Laz-Z-Boy queen air hide-a-bed with matching love seat.

The apartment 'tree house' is nestled amongst hundred year old oaks on two acres which include a citrus grove and pond. When in season, you can enjoy tree ripened mangoes and citrus. While having breakfast on the porch, you'll have a beautiful view of the Manatee River. In the evening, watching the sunset while having cocktails by the fire will provide a chance to see the manatees swim past the boat dock, or you may choose to watch the sunset from the Jacuzzi.

We are 1 1/2 hours from Disney World, and hour from Busch Gardens and Mote Marine, a world class aquamarine research facility which gives tours.

Cathy's grandparents settled on Snead Island in 1957, she's called it home ever since. We've been married since 1980, at which time we moved aboard our 32' sailboat. For the next 20 years we lived and worked on private, corporate and charter boats, Bob as Captain/Engineer, Cathy as 1st Mate/Cook. We now enjoy racing our 22' Morgan sailboat and riding our Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

It's been in the family since 1974. We lived in the apartment, now we live in the main house.

Bob, Cathy & Jessie were wonderful hosts and our visit could not have been better. The "Tree House & Grounds" are just beautiful. Enjoyed our morning coffee down at the sea wall and on the porch. The "Sunsets were awesome". Emerson Point Preserve was a added bonus (walking trails and beach). Hope to return soon, R, T & Mollie

Quiet Retreat

This "tree house" was great for a quiet week away from it all. House had everything we needed; kitchen was well stocked with tools and appliances. Enjoyed sitting by the river and the porch.

I had decided to do the skipping Christmas thing this year and subsequently had one of the loveliest Christmases ever. The tree house is a very lovely and welcoming home away from home. It is very comfortably furnished and extremely clean and modern. Captain Bob built a fire by the water every morning and I enjoyed talking with him and Kathy by the fire while having my coffee. There were schools of dolphins, pelicans and many other birds, ducks and wildlife that I didn't know the names of. (I'm sure Bob and Kathy did if I would ask) This is a wonderful place for adventure or peace and solitude, whichever you are in the mood for. I spent 10 wonderful days there and it went by much to fast but I have every intention of returning. I don't think you could find a lovelier or more welcoming place on the gulf.

What's Not to Love?

What's Not to Love?
  • 5 of 5
This was our third visit to the "Tree House" on Snead Island. The apartment is situated on a beautiful site. Made more so by the loving hands of it's owners Cathy and Bob. It's a true haven of peace and tranquility. It's away from everyday cares, yet close to attractions, stores, and restaurants, including Emerson Point, a short walk, or drive away. Imagine being so close to the water you can watch dolphins playing. We certainly will be back.

Paradise close to town

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in November 2012. You get the feeling that you are in another world here, but are only minutes from town. This is conveniently located to St. Petersburg, Bradenton and not too far from Sarasota. We had an absolutely wonderful time here and my freinds say the pull out bed is the most comfortable they have ever slept on. Great get away!

Waterfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!! What an amazing little corner of Old Florida! Capt. Bob and Cathy were the kindest people we could have hoped for. There was even a "tree house warming" treat in the fridge for our 4 year anniversary! They are the best hosts we have ever had the fortune of dealing with and we don't mess around when it comes to unique little getaways in SWFL! Took the maiden voyage in our "new" 17' whaler out of the Alafia River in Riverview, across Tampa Bay, under the Skyway and hung a left over to Palmetto and the finest lodging and surroundings we have found to date. We had fun on the trip over (my wife might insert a comment or two here, ha!) but let me tell ya, it was ROUGH out there and Capt. Bob was even kind enough to break out the "primitive navigation equipment" aka a flashlight to bring us in through depth challenged waters as it was DARK when we passed under the Skyway and I must confess, sufficient float planning was lacking on my end! What a fantastic time we had and are already angling to come back in December. This place is a must see!!! Absolutely wonderful!!!
