This place met and exceeded our expectations. Being on the water was a treat. Beautiful sunsets! The underwater night lights were fascinating for kids and adults. Really good location to the golf courses and other attractions we enjoy.

Killer sunsets provided a great getaway with great friends

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better spot: open water views, short boat ride to the Gulf, pool, hot tub, dock, and al fresco dining inside the caged in pool and deck. Although fully updated and extremely comfortable, we rarely spent any time indoors. We spent nearly two weeks in swim shorts enjoying the water, the pool, the sun, and really enjoyed the underwater lights that provided endless night time entertainment. Although the kitchen is fully equipped, we frequently opted for delivery from a couple of local places that set us up with some great pizza. We all had a great time. I couldn't imagine a better place to go. We're definitely going back and hopefully soon! Thanks so much.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a fantastic time. The underwater lights are a new addition and they provide lots of entertainment watching the fish and other sea creatures swim around.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! My wife and two boys had a great summer vacation. The views from most of the house are breathtaking. We found the home extremely clean. It was great to keep our boat docked all week, as we fished, explored, and looked for shells and sharks teeth on the beaches.

Very responsive and friendly owner!

It was one of the best stays in Florida we have ever had. The house was georgus with every thing new and spotless. With the pool and heat spot what more could you ask for with the view of the sun going down over the water. What a view. Places to eat every where with a short drive. The birds of every size and color with the fish jumping all over. One of the prettiest spots I have seen.

Will surely go back again and would recomend it to anyone.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home, very spacious, very clean and beautifully decorated. Patio, pool and hot tub were all totally screened in and extremely clean. Pool just sparkled and we enjoyed hours of relaxation in the sun. Took boat ride to Stump Beach Park and walked along the beach looking for and finding sharks teeth! Great fun! Also took boat ride up the inter-coastal waterway to Venice - lovely scenery along the way and had lunch at the Crow's Nest.

Would highly recommend this property.

Very peaceful and relaxing. Watch the fish and dolphins jump and play , see manatees, dolphins birds and more in the water right off the dock, catch starfish, collect sharks teeth from Manasota Key. Take a ferry ride to Gasparilla or Palm Island. Rent a boat and head to Cabbage Key or Stumps pass. Fish from your boat or the beach. Visit down town Englewood or head to Boca Grande lighthouse beach.
