This tropical paradise offers both beach access and boat dock access on this bridgeless barrier island. Relax and enjoy some 'R & R' in this lovely 4 Bedroom/2 Bath house on stilts, which sleeps up to 10 people very comfortably. You will have 2 King bedrooms, 1 Queen bedroom, and 4 twin (bunk) beds.
Enjoy the wonderful Gulf View sunsets from the large screened Lanai at treetop level as well as from the greatroom, dining area, and kitchen. Explore the island with the electric Golf Cart included in your rental. Fish off the community dock, where you can also dock your boat (if you bring or rent one--must be 21' or shorter). Enjoy the huge lower deck with hammock and chairs for cool nights of relaxing. Keep the kids happy with two satellite TVs, two DVD players, a stereo/CD/iPod player, games, jigsaw puzzles, books, and more. Check out our SPECIAL FEATURE: A 2- or 3-person CANOE with ice chest and dry box.
Our property managers will provide you with a packet of information to help you get settled in to your 'home away from home'. They can help you arrange for transportation to and from the island and answer any questions you may have. ***New feature: You can arrange ahead of time for meals to be delivered and waiting for you in your refrigerator/freezer! Also, they can provide you with a disk which will allow you to connect to a local Dial-up (slow speed) Internet service, if you wish.
In 1984, we bought a lot on this beautiful island for a vacation home. After 20 years, we sold the lot and purchased this wonderful house with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. We hope all our renters enjoy their stay and all the amenities of our 'home away from home'.
We live most of the year on the east coast of Florida, and we enjoy the Atlantic Ocean; but our favorite areas are along the west coast of Florida, especially on LGI, where the waves are more tame, colorful shells are plentiful, and the fish and shrimp are great for catching and eating. Quite often, you can see dolphin frolicking in the Gulf and the Bay. [Please remember NOT to take any live shells; these little animals need to stay in the water in order to survive.]
Fishing and boating are wonderful along the coast and within the waters between the barrier islands and the mainland. This is the 'Tarpon Capitol of the World'. Our beaches are not crowded at all and you and your family will have fun exploring the island in our golf cart, which is provided for our renters' use.
We sincerely hope that your stay in The Rum Runner house will be a relaxing and memorable one. We have tried to include all the necessities for a carefree, enjoyable vacation in our spacious home on this 'old Florida' style island. Please leave us your comments in our 'Guestbook', which you will find in the greatroom.
To you and your family and/or friends: Happy Islanding!
