Life is Laid Back on the Gulf! Come relax, slow down and enjoy life on the water. Our cozy vacation home on the Gulf will be your next get-a-way to soak up the sun and recharge. Indulge in beautiful sunsets poolside or our floating dock or best yet, from the beach. Our cozy screened-in lanai offers a cool respite from the sun with a view of the water.
Dolphins, Manatees and various seabirds (cranes, seagulls, eagles and pelicans) are frequent visitors.
For the fishing enthusiast, our two person kayak can easily transport you and your gear to the nearby Mangroves for some great flats fishing, or the kids may catch a variety of fish off the dock. For the family and kids, a four person paddle boat is provided for exploring. Boat and jet-ski rentals are available right within our community should you opt to venture into the Gulf for fishing or to explore Anclote Island and the nearby sandbar for superb shell collecting.
For those who prefer lying like broccoli and soaking up the sun, we have 110 feet of Seawall, adjacent to the pool, accompanied by nine foot umbrellas, lounge chairs and tables. Your family may enjoy our private beach access, equipped with outdoor grills, covered picnic tables, and clean restroom facilities. Plentiful State and County Parks are within easy minutes; Green Key Beach, Anclote River Park, Howard Park and Key Vista Nature park.
Our home offers an open, spacious floor plan with 2000 square feet of Coral tiled flooring with 3 bedrooms (King, 2 Queen) and 2 full baths. For the brisk ocean air nights, enjoy a crackling fire in the large fireplace in the family room. Those who prefer to sit outside can and be embraced by the fire’s warmth from the Chiminea and sit right at the ocean’s edge.
For the chef in the family there's a gourmet kitchen equipped with every convenience including stainless appliances, double oven and built-in cook surface atop of huge granite food prep area. Our custom built cabinets put everything within reach for added ease of cooking. A chef designed and built the kitchen.
The family room has a large flat screen TV and Playstation 2 for the kids. The screened lanai has 2 tables to seat a sizeable group for friendly gatherings.
Fishing poles, bikes, kayak and paddle boat are included. Many rentals do not include toilet paper or paper towels. These are also included for your convenience.
Work brought us to Florida from Colorado in 2010 and unfortunately, the project came to an end. We love enjoying the best of two great worlds with each state enriching our lives in unique ways. We have moved back to Colorado as our 'home base' but come back to enjoy our Florida home often.
We started out as vacation renters from VRBO in this very neighborhood and our great experience in this area prompted us to make our home here in Gulf Harbors. It's a wonderful community!
When we bought our home, we completely renovated it, so, all appliances and flooring are new. There are relaxation spots around the home to fit every mood, from the cozy living room with a fireplace, to the screened-in lanai, to poolside, to the dock. The community also has its own private beach -- very rare in Florida.
