Hutchinson Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (sleeps 4-7) with 4 seat golf cart available for rent.

This 3/2, WiFi, pet friendly, home on the water is perfect for couples or families desiring a sub-tropical get-away any time of year. Water views and private dock for fishing or leisure time is just a few steps out the back sliding door. You are welcome to use our bikes, beach and fishing equipment and rent the 4 seat golf cart during your visit.

Nearby are numerous activities and services available when you are ready to explore the Nettles Island community: 2 pools, hot tubs, beach and Beach Club, Marina, Clubhouse/ Recreation Center including sports facilities, inside and outside games, Gym, Stores, Restuarants, etc... all within walking distance.

Nettles Island is a resort community encompassing a 24-hour security gated neighborhood development between the saltwater Indian River Lagoon and the ocean and located between the Ft. Pierce inlet to the north and the St. Lucie inlet to the south.

The private and unspoiled beach and Nettles Island Beach Club heated pool, snack bar and restrooms with showers is 4 blocks away. Walking, bike riding and golf carts are the most common forms of transportation in the community. You are welcome to rent our 4 seater golf cart with side flaps for $100/week or $250/month.

Bring your boat to explore the lagoon, spoil islands and inlets. You are welcome to tie up to the dock which is equipped to accommodate a 24 ft. boat. The boat lift is unavailable.

You can walk or jog for miles and miles along the gently sloping wide beach seeing very few people or bring a flashlight to the beach at night in the summer months and often observe the giant sea turtles come ashore to dig a nest in the sand and lay their eggs...but no touching allowed by law.

The Neighborhood: In the commercial center you will find a marina, beachwear shop, restaurant and best of all, The Village Grocer. There you will find groceries, baked goods, sandwiches, beer, wine, bait, rent fishing gear, rent movies, buy souvenirs or just have a nice chat with the locals.

At the other end of the development along the waterway, you will find the activity clubhouse (Rec Center) and lots to do: tennis, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, bocce ball, basketball, tot playground, larger heated pool with 2 hot tub, kiddie pool and restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, workout room, pool & ping pong tables, arcade games, computers with internet and more.

The House: Soothing island colors and comfortable 'beach' decor will welcome you as you enter the cottage. A wall of windows in the family room and kitchen provides a serene view of the waterway on the quiet East seawall of Nettles Island. It is not uncommon to see dolphins in the morning, many varieties of birds, fish jumping out of the water and occasionally a manatee.

The kitchen has all the major appliances and is fully stocked for cooking and dining. The adjoining family room has a 37' flat screen TV with a DVD player and a surround sound system and cord for an iPod.

The larger bedroom (sea glass room) includes a comfortable queen bed, a small bathroom with a nice size shower, and a 32' flat screen TV. The second bedroom (mermaid room) also has a queen bed. The third bedroom (sea turtle room) has a sturdy wooden bunk bed: double mattress on the bottom and twin mattress on top. All bedrooms have closets and dressers. All rooms have ceiling fans and central A/C and heat.

The Dock: Walk a few steps out the back door to get a closer look at the boats slowly motoring by or cast a line and catch fresh fish for dinner. The dock has a built in bench along with portable table and chairs which make it a great place to fish, eat, read and relax while taking in the view. In the cooler months, open up the sliding door to enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze throughout the house.

Upon check in, the house will be stocked with approximately 2 days worth of necessities: toilet paper, tissues, soaps, shampoo for the bathrooms and dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, trash bags and coffee in the kitchen. Stop in to the Village Grocer down the street or Publix supermarket to purchase food and necessities for the duration of your stay. All bed linens, towels (including beach towels) and kitchen towels are provided.

Please be aware that the seawall is very close to the back door. It is recommended that all renters, especially children, be able to swim. You will find a ladder and life ring on the dock, but these items may not be enough to prevent a drowning due to accidental fall ins.

Since we are close to the seawall, the cottage is up 4' feet; therefore, upon entering there are 8 steps up to the living area.

We know you will enjoy your stay. It is a wonderful place.

About Allison Warren

We have lived in south Florida since 1987 and purchased the property and built the cottage to use for our family fun in the summers near the beach. Since our 3 daughters are 'all grown up' we are happy to share the use of the house for others to enjoy. Nettles Island is the place for creating happy memories!

Allison Warren purchased this house in 1998

Why Allison Warren chose Hutchinson Island

We love the beautiful uncrowded and unspoiled beach as well as all the Nettles Island resort has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The view and access to the dock on the waterway is very special from inside the house and sitting or fishing on the dock. In the evenings we enjoy sitting on the dock bench with a glass of wine, sharing the day's events and watching the moon rise over the water some special evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have many wonderful entries in the Guest Book that may help you decide if this is the vacation home for you. Although I listed them today, all are taken word for word from the Guest Book. Hopefully if you choose our Nettles Island home to be your vacation home, you, too, will leave an entry in the Guest Book and also enjoy reading other who have come before you.

A perfect place to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as described . Clean and cozy with a great view of the water . It was very nicely decorated and had all the basic necessities . The owner was great to talk to and very accommodating. We enjoyed being at nettles island and enjoyed the pools and walking around and feeling very safe . We also enjoyed eating at the Landing restaurant and also at several restaurants in Stuart and jensen beach . Great restaurants within 15 minutes. I would highly recommend staying at this home .

Beyond Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This exquisite piece of Floridian Paradise is a jewel! I was enticed by the photos of it, along with very fair pricing, but photos only hint at the true beauty and comfort this rental offers. Not only is it decorated to perfection, the home is immaculate and extremely well-stocked with all the amenities needed. The owners were very friendly and informative, throughout the whole process, making for easy payment, check-in and check-out. They are also thoughtful enough to leave a detailed "Guest Guide" which explains all you need to know about their home and the surrounding community. Being a former travel agent, I would list this as a top-notch property, and give it 5 more stars!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive, enthusiatic review. It is nice to know the time and funds I put into making the property special is appreciated!

Amazing House in such a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

To be totally honest, the photo's don't do the property justice.

We were 100% happy with our stay and the location was spot on.

The island is so quiet, in fact the wildlife made more noise with the fish splashing around.

The house came with so many items that made our stay comfortable. Simple things like buckets for bait and washing tablets for clothes.

We have stayed all over Florida and this property ticked all the boxes for us as we could fish from the dock at the rear of the property. We also could fish the island causeway and made friend's easily as the locals embarrassed our UK accents.

WiFi was great too, enabling us to stay in touch with friends back home.

Would recommend without a doubt.

This a is great property to rent!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Allison's Nettles house! When we arrived we found the house perfectly clean and just as it was described in the listing. The kitchen was great and stocked with everything we needed to make meals. Loved that there was a washer and dryer right in the kitchen...Perfect for when you are traveling with children. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds and the bathrooms were very clean. We loved the deck/dock in the back! We found ourselves out there in the mornings and a lot at night. We would make dinner and go eat at the table out there. We had great neighbors too...Very friendly!

The Nettles community is great! We have grandparents just down the street so we have been to Nettles before and are familiar with it. For those who haven't been Nettles before...the facilities are wonderful! There are two pools... One on the ocean and one in the middle of the island. The ocean pool has plenty of lounge chairs for everyone and has a great little restaurant that serves lunch! Plus, you are right on the ocean... so it doesn't get much better than that! The main pool in the middle of the island is big and is surrounded by botchy ball courts, shuffle board, a sandbox for little kids, tennis courts and even a mini golf course. This is the perfect place to visit if you have children. You can't get bored here!

The city of Jensen Beach is pretty nice. There are lots of great little restaurants and bars to visit such as Mulligans and Craw Daddy's. There is a street fair every Thursday at 6pm on the main street downtown. There is also the Treasure Coast Mall if you wanted to go shopping.

I would totally recommend staying here to any of my friends! And Allison's house was the perfect place to rent! We will definately be coming back in the next few years! Thank you Allison for everything!

Perfect vacation home on the Treasure Coast!!

  • 4 of 5

It is my pleasure to write a review for this rental property. This is our 2nd stay in this wonderful home. The owners are extremely accommodating and easy to work with. The home has everything necessary for a short or long term stay. The home is clean and well-maintained, with a fully stocked kitchen. There are bikes, beach chairs, and a variety of beach toys. Many mornings and afternoons were spent on the pier (we got to see dolphins several times). The property has two lovely pools, two hot-tubs, and beach access is nearby. There are many public beaches in both Martin and St. Lucie County, as well as fantastic parks and outdoor activities. There is a fantastic restaurant on property, and several wonderful restaurants are just a short drive away. Downtown Stuart is charming, and there's always something going on there. They have an outdoor market on Sundays, along with live music and first rate shows at the Lyric Theater. Ft. Pierce (just a short drive to the north) has a fantastic outdoor market on Saturdays. I would highly recommend this property to a friend/relative, but it is such a gem that I'm afraid if word gets out then it won't be available when I want to stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing such a positive review. I am assuming the 'pier' is another word for the private dock out the back sliding door of the house and is a wonderful place to relax, watch the wildlife and catch fish!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed at this Nettles Island House. We enjoyed it so much. The lagoon was beautiful in the morning, watching the sun rise over the water, and it was equally lovely in the evening. One evening we saw a group of dolphins swimming.

The house was clean and very comfortable. We were able to do laundry when we needed to. We loved using the snorkel gear at bathtub reef beach. The listing description was very accurate and everything was clean and well-maintained. The beds were wonderfully comfortable.

It was wonderful to speak with the owner, Allison. She was very helpful and kind. There were no problems at all. I would recommend this owner and house to any of my friends.

We went to the Navy Seal museum, Pepper beach, went on a boat ride to see the lagoon, went to Bathtub Reef beach, went to a family fun center, and went to Jensen beach. The children really loved the pool and game room on Nettles Island. We found out that we Midwesterners really love the beach. The kids are already asking us when we can go back to Florida.

The house is 4 feet off the ground so once you enter through the front door you will find 8 steps leading up to the living areas of the house which are all on the same level. The seawall is very close to the back sliding door thus probably not suitable for very young children or non swimmers.
