Come on down, grab a cool drink and nestle yourself into our hammock under the whispering Florida pines. Watch the sunrise from our secluded dock and the sunset from the pristine beach every day. Relax... You are in 'Old Florida' now.
This is a true island surrounded by the beautiful blue/green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Colony Don Pedro, deserted, white sandy beaches on the west side and intercoastal, backwaters on the east side. Put your car on the private ferry over to the island and feel the stress leave your body.
No traffic, no e-mail, or voicemail here. The only sounds you will hear are the fish jumping in the lagoon or the waves crashing the beach. Most days, Stan, our resident turtle will wake you as he passes by for a few green beans or a few chomps on our hibiscus flowers.
Just 200 feet from your front door you can head south down the uninhabited beach, pass through the state park, about three miles and you are at the tip of Little Gasparilla Island. From that point south you are looking at Boca Grande. Head north up the beach about the same distance and visit the Palm Island Resort. Either direction you go the seashells and sharks teeth are under your feet. Watch for tarpon rolling, dolphins cruising, manatees, and loggerhead turtles bobbing their heads as you walk. Remember to take a dip in our gulf side private pool after your relaxing stroll.
Relax out back on the dock with your fishing pole. The snook, redfish, and trout are always there waiting to challenge you. Watch your bait, Jimmy the Egret will sneak up behind you and steal your fish food. Bring your boat and venture out into the fertile back country waters for giant snook, redfish, and tarpon. Or head down to Boca Grande or Stump Pass for world class Florida fishing.
So if you blew out your flip-flop, or stepped on a pop-top, relax you’re in paradise!
Cozy and clean house, great surroundings and amenities. The beach, kayaks, sharks teeth, shelling, fishing from the dock. The Armadillo cruising through the yard many times. The pool was great, get a golf cart to cruise the island. Jim Hick's Golf Carts, great service.....
