Florida House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Spectacular sunrises can be viewed from the screened or open deck each morning while you enjoy coffee. Actually there are great views from just about every window and location on site. Our house is very private and joins a twenty acre nature preserve abundant with wildlife.

The Bay is thirty feet in front of our house and great for watersports, fishing, and boating. We have a small sand beach there, great for children or to tie up your boat if you bring one (fishing is great here too). The Gulf main beach is a block away with beautiful white sand beaches, great for surf fishing or just relaxing and taking in the sun and view.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with a table for four and a bar for two. There is a master bedroom with queen bed and a loft bedroom with two double beds. Down below on the lower covered patio you will find a outdoor sink, outdoor shower picnic tables and a comfortable swing where you can continue to view the beautiful Bay.

Bring your boat or Kayak, have fun exploring the bay and waterways near our home, tie them up on our beach.

Check out time 11 AM----Check in time 4 PM

About Curtis Ward

We bought this home in 1995 for our personal use, not as a money making investment. However with the high cost of owning a Florida coastal property we have decided to rent some to help off set the costs of owning the home. We still use the property every chance we get.

Why Curtis Ward chose Florida

We are located in a very quiet, safe and low traffic neighborhood. We are situated next to a 25 acre nature preserve and in a private location. We usually fish, swim, boat, sunbathe and just hang out at our home on our little private beach as opposed to walking down to the public beach. However the public beach is only a block away.

Just Right!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the Goldilocks of vacation properties. It's just right! The home was spotless upon arrival. It was just as represented. The home owner is a dream to work with. The location is nice. We enjoyed sunrise on the deck and sunset strolls over to the gulf. We will be back for sure

Fabulous memories

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our fall break there. It was truly one of the best family vacations we ever had. Our two sons, 11 and 14 years old, spent the week swimming, fishing, looking for crabs, sea stars, and sand dollars. The house has the best view of the bay from the deck. It is very comfortable, clean and quiet. We loved the rustic charm of the house. Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable.

Best view on Alligator Point

  • 5 of 5

This home has a view of the bay on three sides. It is open and bright and super clean. It is so comfortable. We were there the week after labor day and it was so quiet and private. We saw an eagle and dolphins and lots of crabs. The mullet were jumping everywhere and we caught fish from the beach right at the house. The kitchen has plenty of appliances and utensils, and there are lots of linens and comfortable sleeping. It was perfect for our "run away from home week!" The owners are very gracious and we felt so welcome and relaxed. Will definitely come again.

Dreaming and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is comfortable and everything you need is readliy accessible. The kids LOVED the loft area and had a great time playing on the small private beach and checking out the crabs. Lots of wildlife to see and even a cool Lab named 'Oyster' who came up to play. The deck was perfect for propping up my feet with a good book and a cup of coffee. I could live out there. In fact, one of the kids camped out on the deck. If you are looking for peace and quiet, no crowds and a place to get away from the world, this is it.

Tranquillity On The Water

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot for a tranquil retreat. The owner was such a delight, which made the whole experience all the better. We spent a week on the water fishing and crabbing and loved every second of it. The home has amazing views with all of the comforts of home. We fell in love with this little treasure and cannot wait to plan our next visit.

Quiet Times with a sunrise

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 days at this property and it was everything we were looking for. Launched my kayak right off the property beach and had the whole bay to paddle and fish-- very few boats and people around the 3rd week in Sept. House was clean and owners are extremely nice to do business with.Bald Point State Park certainly worth a visit. Walked down the street every night to see sunset over the gulf. Would certainly like to return next year
