In 1984, we bought a lot on this beautiful island for a vacation home. After 20 years, we sold the lot and purchased this wonderful house with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope all our renters enjoy their stay and all the amenities of our 'home away from home'.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

We live most of the year on the east coast of Florida, and we enjoy the Atlantic Ocean; but our favorite areas are along the west coast of Florida, especially on LGI, where the waves are more tame, colorful shells are plentiful, and the fish and shrimp are great for catching and eating. Quite often, you can see dolphin frolicking in the Gulf and the Bay. [Please remember NOT to take any live shells; these little animals need to stay in the water in order to survive.]

Fishing and boating are wonderful along the coast and within the waters between the barrier islands and the mainland. This is the 'Tarpon Capitol of the World'. Our beaches are not crowded at all and you and your family will have fun exploring the island in our golf cart, which is provided for our renters' use.

We sincerely hope that your stay in The Rum Runner house will be a relaxing and memorable one. We have tried to include all the necessities for a carefree, enjoyable vacation in our spacious home on this 'old Florida' style island. Please leave us your comments in our 'Guestbook', which you will find in the greatroom.

To you and your family and/or friends: Happy Islanding!

JUST WHAT WE NEED FOR A GREAT TIME TO RELAX

  • 5 of 5
Private Hideaway home, private beach full of beautiful shells to collect, secluded island far from distracted city light and noise. What else do you need but a guitar, a book or two and the people you love?

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
We spent July 4th at your house and it was the best vacation we ever had. It was so relaxing! Truly a fantastic get-away. We loved spending time with family, driving the golf cart, swimming, canoing, fishing, and especially not having to think about work!

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

REALLY AMAZING GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We have had the best time relaxing on the porch, at the beach only a min walk from the house and on the hammock on the deck. romantic, relaxing, and serene. Couldnt have asked for a better vacation. Has all the perks of home (internet, tv, etc) but we found we rarely used them. We enjoyed each other and the view. We will definitely be going back again.

FAMILY GATHERING

  • 4 of 5
We loved the house and had a wonderful family week. However, if I were the owners of this wonderful property, I would take a serious look at the management. The house needs a thorough deep cleaning. The trees need to be trimmed and the lot cleaned. The golf cart needs some serious service. We loved the island and the weather was nice--we certainly would go back again, but maybe to another better managed property.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have asked our property managers to monitor the cleaning better and I am sure they will. The dead palm fronds were due to an unusual freeze we had, just before you arrived. They have since been trimmed and the coconuts now line the edge of our driveway. We leave the rest of the bushes to grow wild for an "old Florida" look. We prefer this to a manicured look because it complements the "beachy" atmosphere of our island. We hope you will visit the island again.
