Palmetto House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Snead Island is surrounded by the Manatee River & Tampa Bay & connected to the city of Palmetto by a small bridge. Fish for sea bass, snapper, snook & grouper in the river as well as in the Tampa Bay & Gulf of Mexico.

This adorable Snead Island cottage is nestled on 2 beautiful acres of majestic oaks, orange trees & coconut palms at the opening of the Tampa Bay. The front yard has beautiful southern Oak trees. Newly furnished with very clean & comfortable bedrooms, living room, dining room, full kitchen, attached laundry room & a screened, enclosed veranda. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and back entrance is wheelchair accessible. Continue down the shell drive 250 ft from your back door onto a 100 ft dock to lounge, watch for dolphins and enjoy the sun setting on the Manatee River. A 35 foot boat slip is also available for a small additional fee, water & elec provided. Just to the right of the dock, is a small private white sand beach, for swimming, kayaking or just relaxing in the lounge chairs, under a beautiful mangrove tree.

The outside world of shopping, grocery stores, malls & waterfront restaurants are all within a 15 minute drive.

Beautiful 365 acre Emerson Point Preserve Beach Park is withing walking or bike riding distance on the island. There are bike trails, nature & birding trails, a canoe & kayak launch, white sandy beaches for swimming, fishing, picnic tables, barbecues, restrooms and a tower climb for an incredible view of the sunshine skyway bridge and gulf of Mexico. Pets on leashes are welcome in the park and on the beach for swimming. A great place to unwind and feel like you've stepped back in time.

Visit Sarasota cultural center, world renowned St. Armand's Circle; less than 1/2 hour to St. Petersburg and the retail shops at Bay Walk; under an hour to the excitement of downtown Tampa: or 1.5 hours to Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal and MGM Studios. Seafood festivals and many other fun activities happen weekly in Palmetto and just across the bridge in Bradenton.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We first booked this house about 6 years ago. We have been very happy here every time we stay. Owners are great people to rent from. If we had a problem they fixed it immediately. They are animal lovers and they treated our Sadie like one of the family. Will try to rent here as long as we can. Love the place and the location.

What a great vacation! The house is awesome and has everything that you need. Close to shopping, the sights, great restaurants and steps away from a beautiful beach. Can't get much better than this!!

This is a beautiful vacation spot. It is home away from home. I enjoyed watching the sunsets and dolphins jumping. I can't wait to go back.
