About Jon

We will maintain our property with high standards of cleanliness and comfort and become the first choice in lodging for discerning travelers to the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Jon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jon chose Cortez

Close to the beaches, but away from the traffic. Relax in a quiet neighborhood.

Walk to & enjoy the beaches, then return to 'Nest' for peace and relaxation. Sea-side dining, home made ice cream, and excellent pizza are all within a few moments stroll.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll stay directly on an ocean canal 1 minute Kayak paddle to Sarasota Bay. Fish off the dock (gear provided), or bring your boat. Walk to deep sea fishing, para-sailing, tour boats, home-made ice cream and great pizza! The Islands are a short stroll away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment had a beautiful open concept, nicely decorated. The place was supplied with nice quality furniture and cooking apparatus. Quiet and right on the canal, close to everything. Owners were above and beyond for help, and just a click away. Clean and never even seen a bug. I would recommend this place to everyone. Thanks for the stay.

"2ndNest" -- A Cozy Resort Residence

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying at the "2ndNest". It was very clean, comfortable and well equipped for a private vacation residence. The owner showed us all the nice things about the residence, and was very helpful with any questions that we had about the property. We enjoyed watching the birds and marine life in the adjacent canal. It was very close to Anna Maria Island where we have spent several years vacationing. It is also very close to several nice restaurants both in the Cortez area and on the island, and close to shopping in the Bradenton area. Overall we had a very relaxing and interesting vacation at the "2ndNEST". We would gladly stay there again on future vacations.

All You Could Want-Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I wanted to have a place that felt like home yet you knew you were at the beach. This home was perfect. We stayed in the upper unit and it was equipped with everything you need and more. It was uniquely and beautifully decorated. The owners have put their own touch on this unit making it warm and inviting. If you are looking for relaxation and beach time, look no further, you will not do better than the 2nd Nest!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This adorable, spacious place was heaven sent to a Vermonter who had had it with winter! The property is in a very quiet neighborhood, bordering the canal that leads to the bay. Just up the road is the Cortez bridge that takes you across to the beautiful gulf beaches, quaint shops and numerous restaurants, all a 15 minute walk. Closer by is the charming Cortez Fishing Village with two fish markets and several more restaurants.

The owners have done a spectacular job making this duplex a very comfortable and delightful place for vacationers. The kitchen is well equipped with everything a cook could want. It was well stocked throughout with supplies so I didn't have to run to the store first thing. Thoughtfully toiletries are plentiful in case you forgot something. Every attention has been paid to detail making this a wonderful home away from home!

I will certainly return!

Had a wonderful stay at 2ndnest!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing stay, we stayed in the upstairs apartment. The accommodation is tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need. It's located just off the island so evenings are quiet with little traffic noise. Although it's off the island, it's just a short walk or bike ride across the Cortez Bridge and you are right next to historic Bridge Street, in Bradenton Beach. The free trollies are great to explore Holmes Beach and Anna Maria. The beaches on the island are wonderful and there are plenty of places to dine out on the island.

Relaxing with nearyby activity options

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the ground floor unit and it was just what we needed for some relaxing down time. The bed and furniture was comfortable and we took advantage of the outdoor seating too. The shaded patio helped us get just the right amount of shade time and the deck by the canal allowed us to sit in the sun and watch some boats go by. Our primary goal was quiet relaxation and we had plenty. On days when we wanted to go out there are plenty of local options for boat rides, sandy beaches, fishing trips, artsy shopping and lots of restaurants.

The place was extremely clean and it was clear the new owners care about the property and are continuing to upgrade inside and out. They were very responsive to all our questions and quite helpful in suggesting local sites.

We would definitely like to return and even bring the grand kids for a bit. There was a second bedroom with bunk beds too.
