Absolute Bliss! I am delighted to offer my home to create beautiful memories. This beach house offers both casual elegance and the comforts of home.

Children and sunbathers will love our zero edge heated pool with fountain and tanning area, and everyone will enjoy the fantastic deck to grill and watch spectacular sunsets while dining. Our private sugar sand beach is large enough for family games and activities.

Bliss is located in a residential neighborhood where the beach is the widest on the island. A seven minute walk south on the beach will take you to beachfront dining with live entertainment and water sport rentals. A three minute walk north will take you to a sandbar that you can fish from.

Beautiful home in the best location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we have rented to escape the MN winters. It was as enchanting as we remembered and we felt at home immediately. Our 5 & 2 year old grandkids especially enjoyed the heated pool & riding the trolley. We cooked more this time and enjoyed using the grill & crock pot. Watching the sunset every night & sometimes the sunrise was spectacular. Elisabeth was the most gracious hostess, sincerely wanting to meet your needs. I would recommend this property without reservation.

Great location. Private. Very accommodating owner.

  • 5 of 5

The property (house, pool, beach, & guest house) were all great. We brought my parents and our nanny. Everyone had ample space. The guest house was perfect for our parents to escape from the sun or the kids. The property allowed a change of scenery each day. We would go from the pool to the deck to the ocean and back to the pool. A private pool is a must if you rent a house on the beach. We never had to worry about bothering anyone. Elisabeth had very nice patio equipment which provided great shade for my kids. Unfortunately we couldn't have a fire but overall we had a great time. Elisabeth was a great host and made sure we had what we needed at the house. Thanks for an awesome week. Need a pillow topper on the queen beds due to firmness & a few extra pillows.

Great location on beach and a nice pool

  • 4 of 5

Spent every morning on beach deck, afternoons pool side and back to deck for sunset. Perfect layout w kitchen and great facing beach w full views of sunset from all windows. Comfortable bedrooms w jackjill bath in between.

Cottage house is close to the road, Estero, which is busy so seriously consider using earplugs when sleeping to block noice. Otherwise the separate house is nice for those who need their own space - there's some in every family.

Elisabeth is super responsive !

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beachfront Bliss in January, 2017 with our children and their spouses and our grandchildren. This was the perfect fit for us - literally and figuratively! The property is surrounded by a "wall" of planjtings which makes everything feel very private. The pool was the perfect temperature - just step in - and the ledge was wonderful for the little ones! The home is clean and obviously well cared for. The kitchen is lovely and well appointed for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. Everyone was able to relax and feel very comfortable. The guesthouse was a perfect place for my husband and I - a getaway from our getaway so to speak. We were blessed with gorgeous weather so we ate all of our meals outside on the deck. The private beach was perfect for sitting in a lounge chair while the grandkids were napping and the hammocks in the palms were enjoyed by all. We had one great night at the fire pit mesmerized by not only the fire but the stars too! The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed playing and walking for miles. From the start of planning our vacation, Elisabeth always responded rapidly and answered all of our questions, providing all the information we needed! Great times!!

Perfect family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to take a trip to escape the Minnesota winter and celebrate our daughter's birthday. We were so lucky to have stumbled upon the one open week at this property! The private beach was perfect for playing horseshoes, roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, swinging in the hammocks, playing badminton, watching sunsets....etc. etc. etc. The list of outdoor activities is endless and the supplies are provided. The pool temperature was comfortable and it was a nice, private area with all of the landscaping around. We had all of the grandparents join us and there was plenty of room for them in the main house and my husband, daughter, and me in the guest house. Would not change a thing about our experience - if only we could have stayed longer!!

Terrific sunsets
