PRIVATE ISLAND HOUSE ON THE WATER

Cortez House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Set on a 30 acre private island, this new water front home (completed in 2012) will provide an island vacation experience for you and your family like no other. The house has 2 bedrooms, an outside sleeping porch/bunk bed, along with 2 1/2 bathrooms and an outdoor shower. All rooms view out to Longboat Pass with private dock. Sunsets are spectacular.

The house has 64 feet of sliding doors opening onto large screened decks over-looking the water for lounging and dining. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances. Sound system with IPad/IPhone docking and high speed WIFI. Surrounded by fine-dining, one of the prettiest beaches and amazing fishing, there is plenty to keep you busy – or you can read a book in the hammocks and order pizza to be delivered.

Great boating water, with use of fishing poles, paddle boards and kayaks.

This property is only accessible by boat, which gives you privacy while being close to it all. Parking and docking access to/from the property is provided at local marina (5 minute boat ride). You can bring your own boat and launch it at any of the nearby boat ramps or marinas or rent one from a local marina. Details available upon request.

Designer tree house in paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are very hard to impress, and we couldn't have been more impressed by this designer tree house at the beach! The entire trip was amazing, in large part due to the attention to detail Rodney and his wife have put into making this vacation house a real home. They were also extremely kind and helpful throughout our stay! Amazing people :)

We stayed for a week with our two children (3 and 12) and had so much fun making s'mores at the campfire, playing pétanque (bocce), kayaking, and spending afternoons lounging on the sandbar, while the kids searched for shells and crabs. Loved watching the sunset from the dock and early morning manatees and dolphins. :)

We made most of our meals here and it was an absolute pleasure to cook in this kitchen! (And I generally do not enjoy cooking!) They really have thought of everything you could possibly need, spices, oils, and standard condiments that may have been forgotten. And when my daughter came down with a cold I was so grateful (and surprised!)to find the turmeric and garlic on hand to help ease her congestion without having to make a trip to the store!

Everything is so well organized, finding what you need is a breeze (and even inspired me to reorganize my house when we got home!) and there is plenty of everything! Bath Towels, beach towels, dishes, pillows, blankets etc! I actually brought extra pillows and blankets bc it's seems there are never enough or they are poor quality, but what a pleasant surprise to find quality and surplus!

My husband and I are not boaters, and you do need a boat to get around, but we were able to rent a boat at cannons marina and after a couple of days my husband was able to confidently get us around and the kids had so much fun cruising the water! :)

We will remember this trip as one of our best vacations!

Incredible Experience

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this home for a week with 6 of my college girlfriends (Class of 1986). It was phenominal. There was always a breeze, so we fought over who would get to sleep in the bunks on the sleeping porch.
There is so much attention to detail as well. Great kitchen for prepping meals. And every cooking tool and spice you can imagine. We hardly left the island. But when we did there were plenty of options to try.

The boat access was a little daunting at 1st. But it was a wonderful adventure, with sunset cruises and boat rides to dinner.

Each morning we would open the magnificent doors upstairs and let the cool breezes fill the house.

And so much wildlife and many activites on the island. We had a manatee that would visit every day, caught lots of fish right from the dock, and explored the sandbar out front at low tide.

I would highly recommend this home and will return again and again.
