Aripeka House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom with 2 King Beds and one Queen, 2 Full Baths

The Shine House is a stilt home that sits majestically, on a secluded peninsula with only 7 houses on it. The Lane is a dead end and is privately owned, so there is no traffic other than my neighbors. The Shine House is the next to the last house on the peninsula overlooking the Gulf of Mexico to the West. Our home has water/Marsh/Sawgrasses dividing the beautiful waters, providing beautiful views from every window, since it is on a peninsula, we have 3 sides that have water views. The Westside Upper Deck is the length of the house plus 15' which provides Multi~color Sunsets every night. Outside you will find ample seating and tables that await you and your fellow vacationers, from every vantage point. 3 sides water with marsh and sawgrasses provide an environment that you have never seen in a home, and maybe won't ever find again? An Outlook Bar has been built on the West Upper Deck railing for 6 to enjoy meals looking out at the Beautiful Nature GOD created. You will get your exercise by running back and forth from deck to deck, to upper to lower and front to back trying to see what is making all the commotion in the water. Dolphins come visit almost everyday. How amazing it is to watch Ospreys hovering 20' above the surface of the water, flapping their wings according to the breeze velocity so they can hover, then dive straight down to catch their food.

My name is Kathie, my husband Mark and I have been married since 1995 and we are totally committed to each other. Mark has one Son who is married to a wonderful woman and they have a sweet little daughter that live in Florida. I have one Daughter, married to a great guy and they have 2 beautiful, teenage, daughters. I also have a Son, who is single, and has a sweet daughter as well. So we have 3 children, total, and 4 perfect granddaughters. We will be using The Shine House for family retreats starting new traditions and memories. Mark and I are total opposites, but with GOD we try to compliment each other rather than 'butt' heads. We are CHRISTians and try to put GOD ahead of everything in our lives. I have worked several places, with my last endeavor being, opening Heaven Bound CHRISTian Bookstore in 2003.I felt it was GOD's Will to open the store as a Ministry more than just another Bookstore. People were saved and healed in the bookstore, so I feel like GOD was pleased. I sold the bookstore in 2011 to a good friend that continued the Vision, GOD had put in my heart for the store. My husband, Mark, is co-owner of Honda Suzuki of Jackson, and is not ready to retire yet. We love to ride motorcycles. We also love cars especially fast, pretty cars.We love the water and all the activities that water provides, so buying The Shine House was a very good idea, but maybe premature given my husband's present responsibilities to the dealership, so that keeps him in Ohio as his main home, but I am more mobile, so I will be living in both The Shine House in Florida and also the house in Ohio.This allows me the flexibility to rent The Shine House occasionally, to vacationers when I am in Ohio.I will appreciate my vacationers to please take excellent care of my Shine House, and it's contents, because it is my home, and I am sharing my home with you and your family. Let me also add that I do not reduce my rental fee, so no need to ask.Most think I am very reasonable.

Kathie Simmons purchased this house in 2012

My husband and I love warm weather, and all the activities that warm temps provide. The Gulf has always been a preference because of the lack of commercialism. We looked online for a property to buy for about a year and a half, then during a trip to Clearwater we got serious and contacted a realtor when we had several properties we wanted to look at. The ariel photo of The Shine House, seeing that it was remote and almost surrounded by the Gulf, was totally amazing to us. We didn't dream we could ever find a property like The Shine House, let alone own it. In all our viewing homes from Myrtle Beach to both East and West Coasts of Florida, we never found a property that had both Gulf views and Sawgrasses. I love to watch the sawgrass move this way and that from the gentle breezes of the Gulf of Mexico. The Shine House overlooks the Gulf to the West, so amazing, unobstructed views of Sunsets will captivate you every evening. Water views are amazing from every window in the house, sawgrass and water/Gulf views from windows facing North (Front) and South (Back) and The Gulf/Sawgrass views are from the West (Side) of the house. Aripeka has a population of only 500 people and is remote and quite removed from todays hustle and bustle of life in the 21st century. Visiting this quiet, sleepy little fishing village is like taking a trip back into time. Come to a place where the past and present meet, The Shine House in Aripeka, Florida. Aripeka has natural, vast forests of Cabbage Palm trees are still standing that have somehow remained untouched by man. Aripeka seems to be one of Florida's best kept secrets. This Gulf coast area offers abundant sea life, and fishing, that has been the draw to the area for years. Babe Ruth spent many winter weekends here during training camps in Tampa. The Wright Brothers spent vacations here as well. Aripeka has kept its natural resources untouched by man, so wildlife is still abundant here. Locals pride themselves in its quaintness.

We bought the house for its unique location 'IN' the Gulf of Mexico, and the house was a pleasant surprise that came with the property. We fell totally in love with the views from every direction, from every vantage point. Under the house, in the house, outside the house, on the front porch, sitting on the bench on the front sea wall, sitting on our own boat dock in our aderondack chairs, sunning on the upper south deck, looking at the sunset from the 60' long west, covered deck. I saw Dolphins playing in the Gulf while viewing the property. I was overjoyed to have found such a place, to someday live. The seclusion of the peninsula, the protected Sawgrass areas, where nothing will ever be built or disturbed, were all very important to us. Over populated areas are not appealing to us, so this property was simply amazing. Our neighbors have adopted us as part of the family. They are very friendly and neighborly. I love inside The Shine House's views of the Gulf from almost every room. Every room has Gulf and/or Water/Sawgrass views with wildlife so abundant, that a zoo would love to have access to. The Gulf is literally our front yard and back yard. When you sit on our boat dock in the back yard, you are actually sitting 'IN' The Gulf of Mexico. There is a swim ladder on the dock that allows you access to swim right there. So our actually the Gulf of Mexico. You can see the uninhabited island, rowing distance away, that has a sandy beach to sun bathe, in the shallow water, with 2 portable lounge chairs that are provided. Unbelievably private! We love, love, love the seclusion that the Shine House offers, but we also love that as remote as this unique property is, it is quite close to everything. Shopping is amazing, just 2 miles away. In fact, there are 125 restaurants within 6.5 miles and 6 Cinema complexes within 11.2 miles. No matter what you may want to eat or shop for, it is just minutes away from The Shine House. This property offers so much diversity.

The Shine House is an idyllic retreat from everyday life. Waking to the glow of the marsh grass and the haze over the gulf, watching the dolphins and water birds seek their morning meal, and listening to the birds greet the day, one can feel the tension and stress melt away. Breezes from the gulf cool the air. Kayaking among the marsh islands and trying to catch redfish, mackerel, and many other varieties of fish is a wonderful way to wile away the afternoons. Top it all off with a home cooked meal on the deck watching the sun descend into the gulf while hoping to see the green flash. On more adventurous days Weeki Wachee Springs is a short drive away. Tampa Bay area attractions are less than an hour away. Several excellent restaurants in the area, as described in the notebooks, provided a variety of dining options. Rusty Bellies in nearby Tarpon Springs was our favorite. You can exercise off those calories the next morning at one of several parks and nature preserves just a short drive away. Or paddle the canoe and kayaks for a good workout. Or simply sit with your feet up relaxing with a good book and let the ocean breezes whisper you to sleep for a well-deserved nap. The choice is yours.

The owners of Shine House have opened their home to their guests and have created a refuge from the daily grind. Our time was absolutely wonderful. All five of us, including my 80+ year old parents and my 16 yr old son, had plenty of space to create our own paradise, if even for just a week. We can only say "thank you".

What a great place! We felt at home from the moment we arrived, everything we would need was already there. The location is great, beautiful sunsets, crystal clear water. We saw manatees, dolphin, a bald eagle, and more. We traveled to Clearwater, and Disney easily. Highly recommended.

This waterside property is everything you read about and so much more! After spending two weeks here celebrating life with loved ones, we are blessed, rested and grateful for the opportunity to have spent this time together! The Shine is like no other rental! There is nothing that you will need that is not provided. Kathie and Mark have made sure that your time spent in their lovely home is comfortable. We so enjoyed the deck chairs, multiple big screen TV's, ability to use our computers and the very comfortable sofas and bedding.
We love to cook and the kitchen has everything we needed. We have rented many beach homes and have never found such a kitchen! Kathie and Mark are such wonderful hosts who want you to be comfortable and enjoy their home. Rent The Shine House - you will not be disappointed!

One of our heart's desire is to return to the Shine House: a place of beauty, comfort & contentment
  • 5 of 5
Some memories we tend to hold so near and dear to our hearts because they are so precious, that they are difficult to share without being emotional. Not sharing the memories is selfish and I'm long overdue in sharing some of ours. Staying at the Shine House allowed my husband, two daughters and their friend a time of contentment and awe. When we arrived, we found a place of beauty, safety, cleanliness and comfort. Taking time to watch the beauty of the sealife, the birds, the sunrise and sunset, and watching the dolphins and manatees swimming right in front and behind the house was so therapeutic and peaceful. I can't share enough the special touches in so many nooks and crannies throughout the home. We all had so much fun enjoying our home cooked meals and fishing we didn't want to leave the Shine House except for quick runs to stores to grab must-have items such as bait or ingredients for our meals. There were many special spots I found to escape the hub-bub of my family when I needed quiet time, such as enjoying the scenic view from the upper decks and relaxing in the comfortable chairs by the dock behind the house, watching the Gulf, and seeing my family and the wonderful neighbors fishing. Special times were had by all of us during our outings to Clearwater (aquarium, walking through local shops) and to local beaches and swimming with the manatees at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park while kayaking. The experience we had from the beginning of our communications with Kathie Simmons throughout the time we spent at the Shine House and returning home was wonderful. She was a joy to talk to, giving helpful advice and delighting in our excitement and awe. I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had at this scenic home. I can say that I was the last one to leave the Shine House the day we departed because I hated saying goodbye to the house, the Gulf and all the special memories we created there. My husband had to come back up the stairs from our loaded car and lead me down them to the car, pushing me into it because I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE. Barring a hurricane, I cannot imagine anyone would regret the investment of time, mileage and finances in the rental of the Shine House for a week. We treasured our stay more than I can adequately describe in this review. By the way, the two men in our group loved the fishing which was of utmost importance to them! There were many bait runs because they were constantly successful in their fishing expeditions!

WOW!! What a beautiful setting. The home is like staying at your best friends place. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained and extremely clean. In fact the cleanest home we have ever rented! This has been a peaceful week of natural beauty. How wonderful to be able to watch the sun set each evening while on our own balcony. We have enjoyed each morning watching Dolphins feed and play while we drank our coffee. The sporting equipment that has been provided with the home has added a wonderful element of choices. The Kayaks have been a favorite. To paddle out on the water for a few hours each day has been so relaxing. As if there wasn’t enough to enjoy right here at home the Weeki Wachee Springs paddling adventure was well worth it. Only about 6 miles away and very economical, it cost us $36 for a 2 person kayak. We spent 4 hours doing more floating than paddling, soaking in the beautiful scenery. And yes we did see Manatees, 3 in fact. Probably our favorite meal while here was at Becky Jack’s food shack. We went for lunch and the crunchy fish was awesome! A close second was Greek City Cafe. Kathie has been so nice and easy to work with. Everything she promised was delivered and then some. She checked in with us upon our arrival to make sure all was well and to assure us not to hesitate to call if we needed anything. The local home caretaker, Doug was very easy to work with and also assured us he would be here to help if needed. I would definitely recommend staying here to my friends and family.

Aripeka has long been forgotten from the hustle and bustle of modern day stresses of life and commercialism. This village has been called 'A Sleepy Little Fishing Town'. It has one country store, Norfleets, which has a private boat launch that you can use for a $5 fee, and also we have the historic Post Office.

Several Famous people have vacationed here frequently. Babe Ruth used to spend his weekends here in Aripeka (while his baseball training camp was in Tampa), because of the wonderful fishing and uniqueness of the village. Also the Wright Brothers vacationed here for the fantastic fishing. Famous artist, James Rosenquist lives here as well. Aripeka has 'The Old Florida' flavor here, quiet, light breezy days, relaxing, fishing, hiking, Wild untouched Nature is what Airipeka is about. As you drive on Osowaw, which is a very quaint 2 lane road, toward Aripeka, the speed limit drops to 35, and you go through a canopy of tropical trees to our 1/4 mile private lane.

Orlando is just 90 minutes away, so Disney World is available for a day trip. Also in Clearwater, about an hour away is The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where Winter lives. Winter is the Dolphin that lost part of her tail because of an infection that set up from a Clam trap injury. Winter had a heart warming family movie made about her called, 'Dolphin Tale' which I have provided the DVD in the House so you can get to know her before you go visit the Aquarium.

Area Shopping is Fantastic, and only 3 miles away on Highway 19, includes Pier 1 Imports, Walmart, Publix, Macy's, JC Penney, Beull's and Beull's Outlet, Belk, Target, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Office Max to name a few.

All kinds of Restaurants are also just 3 short miles away, including Cracker Barrel, Panera Bread, McDonalds, Pizza Shops, Chinese, Mexican, Greek, Japanese Steak House, Chillies, Red Lobster and of course the Restaurants that only the locals know about...Brian's, R Beach, and Bayport Inn all where sea food is not only featured but also perfected..

Several Nature preserves are close by, Bayport Pier, is where I saw my first sea turtle...He was huge...

I see Dolphins almost every day...from the West Upper Deck, they are so playful with one another...and play for an hour. Manatees are seen from both front and back sea walls, along with Crabs, Needle Heads, Mullet, and Striper. Scallop fishing season is wonderful, and is not allowed further North of Aripeka, (season ends last of October).

Why not pack a picnic basket and take the canoe to one of the several uninhabited small Islands within rowing distance from The Shine House? One of the Islands has a sandy beach, where you can enjoy sunbathing privately...Just think...your own private Beach...where else can you get that...?? I provide portable lounge chairs to take with you in the canoe for laying out in the clear water on the sandy floor. Wading is great, just take some old tennis shoes to protect your feet. Swimming in the Gulf is pretty awesome...just anchor the canoe...and jump is very shallow for miles, so no fear about being lost at sea..

I provide 2 bicycles for bike riding. Osowaw is a scenic bike route, (State Route 595). Just minutes away, is the Weeki Wachee Nature preserve where you can go hiking or bicycling, bird watching etc.

I provide 2 kayaks as well, so that you can experience kayaking in the Gulf or close to the shore where the waters are divided by marshes and sawgrasses, where lots of wildlife take refuse and feed.

The Muti~color Sunsets off the West Side Upper Deck are unbelievable, overlooking the Horizon of the Gulf of Mexico. I guarantee you will not want to leave this property for any reason. You will never tire of looking at all the wildlife that pays no attention to you being there. I have a boat dock on the back seawall, and both my neighbors on each side of me have boat launches, so getting your boat into the water is not a problem nor is tying your boat up to the dock until your next adventure.

Remember to pack all your camera gear, because you will turn into a photographer while here. Also bring binoculars if you have them. So you can enjoy watching birds, dolphins, etc. Boating, Fishing, Relaxing, Nature watching, Swimming, Canoeing, Kayaking, or just taking in the many views from every vantage point in and around my beautiful home. So come to Aripeka and feel like a local for a week. Leave all your stress back home...I guarantee it will be there when you return...But for the week you are here, Be Blessed by the fantastic show GOD will provide for you in this 'Nature's Coast of Florida'. Aripeka is where you feel like you have taken a trip back in time. My neighbors are like family just like the old days. I'm sure you will enjoy them also. My next door neighbor, Craig, just might go fishing with you in the canoe if you ask him to. Perhaps he will show you some of his best fishing spots. He catches huge red fish off my front seawall.

Genesis 1:20 sums up... The Shine House 'IN' The Gulf. (Genesis 1:20). Then GOD Said, 'let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth...Across the face of the firmament of the heavens. This Scripture, epitomizes what our property on The Private, Secluded, Indian Bay Peninsula, surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico is all about. A piece of 'Old Florida', untouched, protected groves of Cabbage Palms and Sawgrasses complete with wildlife, birds, fish and water mammals abound in this Paradise. It's like you are visiting an Aquarium, but you are experiencing first hand, God's Creations. The Shine House may not be for everyone....But...if you are a Nature Lover. If you are totally astounded when you look out at the Gulf of Mexico from the 'Outlook Bar' on the Upper West Deck, and see several Dolphins swimming rings around each other, making snorting sounds and splashing lots of Salt Water everywhere, then maybe The Shine House is for you!
