Cape Haze Villa Rental Photos and Description
Stilt House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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’re 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 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!

We love the blue/green waters and the snow white uninhabited beach. It is a quite and relaxing place with no traffic, cool breezes. Our family loves the water and the activities that accompany a place like this.

Tracy December purchased this villa in 2002

We love the relaxed feeling you get when the ferry leaves the mainland and reaches the island. The tree shaded sandy roads, dogs riding on golf carts, the wildlife, and fishing.

It is all unique. The hammock that hangs on our patio, the outdoor shower, the beach accorss the road, the cool breezes on our patio, the quite setting while sitting out back on our dock.

We have stayed at a lot of places over the years but your place ranks at the top. The attention to detail and all the goodies for us to enjoy made it hard for us to decide what to do eah day. We love the outdoor shower, Kayaks, boogie boards, beach chairs, and fishing from your dock. The shelling on the beach is fantastic and the hundreds of sharks teeth were amazing. Sunsets and sunrises were great. we took so many photos of birds and the best was a Manatee swimming behind the dock. Thanks again....

Dear Tracy,
Another wonderful visit! What is this our 6th visit to your house? I lose track.... We went out with Captain Steve Hogan again this year for a half day trip and caught our limit of trout , one keeper redfish (dinner-yum!) and about 20 snook. He's a wonderful guide, always finds the fish plus he points out all the local floral and fauna along the way. We enjoyed watching all the island animals and found lots of "treasures" on the beach. Thanks and have a good year! We'll see you next time.

Dear Tony and Tracy,
Our 4th year here!! We had a truly amazing time. The weather was perfect and we went to the beach and pool everyday. Our charter with Capt. Todd was wonderful, dolphins followed our boat and we saw several manatees. My brother and I caught 2 trout and the captain said Blake's was the biggest this year! It made a yummy dinner. Blake enjoyed the Red Beard show and we went to his concert. I found 29 sharks teeth and 2 jellyfish washed up on shore. Thank youy soooo much and we can't wait to come back next year! P.S. We saw 5 gopher tortoises!
