Bedrooms 3
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Built in 1991, our home is bright, inviting and the perfect place for a wonderful vacation with family and friends in tropical paradise. Located on a peaceful, friendly side street, you're only a few short steps away from quiet beachfront access - or lounge in the sun and enjoy a swim in your own private pool that is within a two- story screened enclosure. It is the perfect place for relaxing and entertaining. Enjoy morning coffee on the large screened lanai and watch the amazing colors of a Southwest Florida sunrise.

Each of the three bedrooms features a deck with sliding glass doors to enjoy wonderful gulf breezes. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with a private bath and walk-in closet. The second bedroom features a queen bed, and there are two twins in the third bedroom (which can be joined together for a king-sized bed), both sharing a main bath off the hallway. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are an open area with vaulted ceilings, and two large, windowed walls open to a huge screened lanai with a view of the gulf.

Our home is very modern and nicely furnished with a fully equipped, gourmet kitchen. The kitchen features all new stainless steel appliances, and the dining room has seating for six. A Publix grocery store is only a short walk 2 blocks away! Cook a gourmet dinner, or enjoy a walk or short drive to many of the fine restaurants on the island. Bath towels, beach towels, and linens are provided, and there is a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Enjoy hours of beachcombing for unique shells and sand dollars. Take an early morning walk on the beach to witness the antics of the pelicans and dolphins.

There is cable TV and a VCR in each bedroom, and a big-screen TV with DVD and VCR to entertain you in the living room- but don't miss out on the magnificent sunsets and nightlife that the beach has to offer!

We hope you enjoy your stay in our home. We have designed it to be comfortable and affordable. Thank you for not smoking in our home and for not bringing your pets with you.

Relax and have fun! We hope you'll return again on your next vacation.

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at the house in November. It exceeded our expectations and made for a pleasant and relaxing family vacation. The house has everything we needed. We found it comfortable and relaxing. We have 2 small children and took advantage of the wagon and beach toys in the garage. We also liked that the pool was accessed through a seperate side door or garage making it safer with regards to children. The pool was always the perfect temperature and a late afternoon swim became a perfect ending to a day, as the gulf was just a little too chilly. The beach is close. Just walk down the street, past 4 houses, cross the road, and you are there. Publix grocery store isnt much further and very walkable. Alison and AJ were very reponsive to all our questions and the house was as clean as promised. The area is relaxed and easy to navigate. We mainly ate at the house but ventured out to Times Square for a meal and ate many $1 tacos at Yo Taco on Estero. We will absolutely consider the house for our next Florida vacation.

Everything they said it would be and more!

  • 4 of 5

It was steps to the beach, 2 blocks from the grocery, had a fully-equipped kitchen, and all the necessities for the pool and the beach were in the garage. You could not ask for anything more! Just unpack and relax. It was perfect for me, my wife, our young daughter (she started crawling while were on vacation and loved swimming in the pool!) and her grandparents. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to families travelling with children because it was fully-equipped for younger children. If we are lucky, we’ll be back again next year!

Thanks for a wonderful place to stay for our vacation. The house was very nice. Everything we needed you had. We did go fishing and were successful. The pool was the savior this time of year. The gulf was a little hot. We also did the all day Everglade tour and had a wonderful time. The house was more than we expected. I was very nervous booking through the internet, things could not have gone any smother. My wife and two older daughter got the tan and shells they were looking for. I will return in the future. Beach access just a few houses away. Grocery store within two blocks. Prices were very good for a beach town and the quality was top notched.

Location kept it quiet at night, but still in the middle of the island for access to everything. The state parks were great. Seen were ots of manatees, dolphins, and all other wildlife. I'm not the shopper, but my wife and girls seemed very happy with the deals to be found.

The Happy Vacationer,

Rick Stinchcomb

ps, couldn't forget the sunsets. In seven nights we were given, six fantastic sunsets

The home was perfect for our needs! We have a 15 month old and the baby equipment & toys made the trip so easy. The house was well equiped and large enough for 3 couples. Near everything and great public beach. Pool and nearby grocery store was an added plus. The grill came in handy to cook up the fresh seafood we bought at the marina! We will definately consider staying here again!
