***DEALS!*** DISCOUNT ON REMAINING DECEMBER WEEKS AND TO JANUARY 21st! CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS! WE ARE 5 STARS AND 12 YEARS RENTING OUR PRIVATE HOME!!
A little about our family home, we have a lovely spacious house 3 bedroom 1 bath with a great room and a Billiard room. The guest cottage (1/1 for rent separately on this site) which was the original home on the property sits adjacent to the Beach House. It is our family home and we take great pride in both of them! The House and the Cottage sit independent on a large double lot and are in a excellent location being 150 feet from beach. It is very private and unique because of the location and all of the landscaping. We purchased the house several years ago from a local artist who had it for 32 years and have redone it while keeping it's Old Florida Beach House charm. It is a rare find on the key because of it's quite location in a residential neighborhood as well as its 2 lots give you lots of open area with botanical gardens making you feel like your in you own private beach compound. It is located 1/2 mile from the state park and 3/4 of a mile from the restaurants, bars with live entertainment and shops.
The BEST PART is you will find yourself a "stone's throw" (150 ft) from a wide private beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
Since this is our family vacation home you will find it's like being in a friend’s home not a hotel. The home has also been completely redone is furnished like a home not like a rental. It has been renovated and decorated beyond any other home available for rent!! You will find everything you will need with the exception of a beach towel and your clothes. (ALL ROOMS HAVE CABLE TELEVISION AND WIRELESS INTERNET) Also this is the ONLY rental home that we know of with a BILLIARD ROOM, featuring a beautiful Brunswick drop pocket pool table.

I have been here since 1995 and take pride in my families home to not only keep it in great shape and nice than other properties but I keep improving it every year to make it the BEST. Below is information on me but talk with me personally and lets visit. I like to get to know my guest and they like to come back that's why I have 36% repeat business this year.
I am from Colorado my fiancé Caroline is from Rhode Island. I moved to Florida back in 1995. Both of us work in the medical field. I am a USCG Master Captain and a NAUI dive instructor and we both spend a lot of time on our boat at our beach or on the motorcycle. If you stay at our home and want rent a boat, charter a fishing trip, go scuba diving or rent a Harley Davison and ride around I can help you out. Caroline is the tour guide and shopping guide person and can tell you where all the malls and outlet stores are in Sarasota which is 1to the 5 to 20 minutes away.
Scott purchased this house in 2005
We take great pride in our home. This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder, grouper, mackerel or redfish.It doesn't get any better than this!
This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothingExplore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuariesVisit Stump Pass State Park or Dine at one of the local restaurants.
This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more. We are within easy driving distance of many of Florida's most popular cities and attractions. Venice and Sarasota are a short drive, and provide many cultural attractions and unusual shopping opportunities. We are within a 2-3 hour drive of Tampa/St.Petersburg, Orlando (Disney World), Fort Myers and Naples.
Location! Location! Location! Beach is a stones throw away! 150 feet. No busy roads to cross and you don't have to walk blocks to find a place to access the beach like most other places and we are a family home not a rental! Restaurant's, Bars, State Park and Public Beach all within 1/2 to 3/4 mile. Also we are in a really nice residential street not condos!
From Trip Advisor Reviews: The home was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We had our 2 grandchildren with us and the space worked very well. The closeness to the beach was great - just a short walk and a great section of beach. It was close to restaurants and shopping yet a quiet neighborhood..........We would certainly come back if we get the opportunity!
We stayed 3 nights at this address. The location was excellent - 30 second walk to beach, close enough to walk to restaurants, shops, etc. The house was perfect for our needs with three bedrooms, a nicely appointed kitchen, and a big screen TV to watch football! We had fun playing pool in the evening and used the grill to cook meals as well. All very clean and comfortable. Thanks for the hospitality!
We just couldn't stay away and it was even better than the last time we stayed! Scott has been sprucing up the place and making paradise even better! I just love the location with the beach and the Gulf of Mexico just a few steps away, the stores and nightlife, restaurants, whatever you need just off in the other direction. This has become our very favorite staycation spot and Scott has been wonderful helping us enjoy every little bit of this corner of paradise. We stayed in the large and cozy 3 bedroom house with plenty of space for everybody and everything and all the amenities. The pool table was a fun plus!
I cannot recommend this spot in paradise enough! The property is well maintained, VERY clean and comfortable. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with the rest of us, Scott. We'll see you again next year (if not sooner)!
My family and I loved staying in your home!! Our children were so excited to see the beach from in front of the house, it actually took us a little while to get in the house. We sat on the lani as the kids maveled wondering around the beautiful yard.
The pictures really do not do the home justice, it is just beautiful, we felt at right at home. All the rooms are very spacious, airy, and clean. Huge plus with having TV's in every bedroom! The huge stocked kitchen made making meals easy, a huge Thank You! By the way, love the counters!
We were able to walk to just about everywhere we wanted, this was important to us as we love to walk as a family.
Oh my goodness!! The beach was the greatest! So close, so clean, not crowded as it is private. A very family friendly beach with a very beautiful sunset every evening. We really enjoyed the sunset gatherings!!
We will most definetly be returning again. After talking it over, we have decided this will be our regular vacation spot.
Thank you so very much Scott for sharing your family's home with us!!
Our furbaby loved it too!!
My husband & I (including 3 children ages 1, 10 & 12) had an amazing family vacation here. It's perfectly located & had just enough privacy (our own piece of the beach!) & serenity we needed while being in walking distance to nearby restaurants & shops. It's beautifully maintained, super clean, & well decorated. Renting this beach house was the easiest vacation we've ever booked to date. We will DEFINITELY be back!
As soon as we arrived I was in awe and knew my husband had made the right choice. The house was tucked away in a beautifully landscaped jungle. We were so close to the beach we could hear the surf crashing on the sand.
The inside of the house was just as gratifying..everything you could possibly want or need was supplied. The kids each had their own room with a tv for their entertainment. While our room was just distant enough to not have their little voices interrupt our fun. By far one of the cleanest houses we've ever had the pleasure of renting.
Not to mention Scott was a pleasure to deal with from booking through check out. He was able to recommend some of the best restaurants in the area and a couple places for the kids.
Hands down best vacation we've had in years. The whole family cant wait to come back, we've already made reservations for next year!!
I just can't say enough about how great or stay was. Very island feel with modern convenience. Scott, the owner, went out of his way to assure our stay was exceptional! 2 min walk to the private beach and many close island style restaurants/entertainment made for a truly tropical vacation.. cheaper than a hotel and unbeatable value.. Will book again!
