This 4 Bedroom 3 bath resort like home boasts 200' of deep water canal frontage. Enjoy your own private paradise with your own Marina backyard. Dock has 4 floating boat slips that can accommodate up to four 50' yachts or sail boats, one 10,000 lb boat lift that fits up to a 30' boat, and one jet ski ride on dock. Water and electric hook-ups available. Sit pool side or canal side and enjoy long canal views. The Majestic queen palms always sway to the sea breeze. There is hardly ever a still day. Beautiful lush tropical landscaping surrounds you. Watch butterflies, parrots, ospreys and eagles from the pool, multiple dock seating areas, under the gazebo, on the hammock, or up on the 500' sq ft roof top deck that give a 360 degree panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico and the private beach located right across the street. You can see for 20 miles in all directions with Anclote Key and its historic light house clearly visible 5 miles due West. See amazing sunsets and storms roll in off the Gulf. Visit the local boating barrier islands with Clearwater Beach only an hour south by boat (faster than by car) or head north to Homosassa Springs or Crystal river and dive and swim with the Manatees. Great fishing from the dock or by boat. We also own and rent the house next door, VRBO#618147 if you are looking at a week already booked at this property or if you have a large party such as a family reunion or are planning a corporate retreat.

We custom built this home with entertaining in mind. We are outdoor people who love to boat and live by the water. We wanted to create our own tropical paradise. The yard is very lush as we love to work in the yard and enjoy flowering plants. Bougenvilla, orchids, ginger, and bird of paradise are almost always in bloom.
Patty Deremer purchased this house in 1999
You can do all Florida has to offer by the way of sun, boating and fishing. Go see the pro's play football, baseball or hockey! Visit the Theme Parks! Swim with Manatees. All this only minutes from your front or backyard depending on how you are traveling-boat or car?
Too many to list. Deep water dockage, grouper off the dock, private islands 4 miles away by boat, Tampa only a 40 minute drive. What's not perfect about all that?
We enjoyed a wonderful time at this luxury property. The home was clean, neat and all in working order. You can rent a boat from this area and it is a wonderful way to get out and fish and explore nearby islands. This is an absolutely peaceful, semi- private, gorgeous property. It is situated quite nicely on the corner, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, making it ultra gorgeous. We watched dolphins come in and swim right in the cove! The owner, Patty was very helpful and accomodating. She gave us plenty of info on exploring and enjoying the surrounding areas.
If you have young children, I would add, be super vigilant as obviously the water and pool but less obviously, lots of steps and hard surfaces to have a mishap on. Recommended highly.
We chose this property for a large group to get away from it all and when we arrived we really didn't want to leave. My wife needed a break from helping her mother through her cancer treatments and this was the absolute perfect place. The owner was very responsive and stopped by just to make sure we were settling in well and knew how to work the pool, spa and entertainment systems and provided recommendations on local restaurants. The views from the top deck were incredible. On New Years Eve from the top deck you can see fireworks all across the horizon. The property is immaculate and well maintained. We really enjoyed the spa and lounging by the pool and sunsets at the beach.
We stayed there for a week with people coming in from different parts of the US. First, I can say that the home is beautiful! Patty went out of her way to accommodate our need for a mid week check-in and check-out, even though that disrupts another possible rental week. The house is well maintained, and clean. The deck and pool area was used extensively every day. One thing I'll note here, for those who like to sunbath 'European style', is that the pool and decks are private and excellently maintained (the spa is GREAT), but twice we had people go from their cars on the road to boats that were moored at some of the docks at the house without any notice. I'm guessing that Patty rents out the boat slips separately from the house. So just keep that in mind as you are laying out by the pool. It didn't bother our friends much, but we are not a shy group. The roof top deck is amazing, we watched both sunrises and sunsets up there, and the views were stunning. There is pretty much everything in the house that you'll need, the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils (except a baking pan, that one confused us but we improvised!), spices, even condiments in the fridge. The whole house music system had the house rocking every night, even the pool, decks, and roof have speakers! It's probably a good thing the house next door was empty during our stay. Any issue or question we had was immediately answered by Patty. And the issues were all minor, like the master bath shower only goes from hot, to hotter, there is no cool or warm setting - and fully open (it's got like 10 shower heads!) runs through hot water in under 30 minutes - but then with that much water flow, no water heater would keep up. That was our only real issue, everything else was just a question that Patty answered promptly - the shower was too hot until the hot water ran down some, then it was fine. So really, staying there a week, 8 people, everything else was perfect and we'd definitely stay again.
Patty also rents the home next door, and showed us that house too as it was also available. To be honest, the one next door is probably a nicer more updated home, but lacks the entertainment aspects of the one we stayed in (surround sound, rooftop deck, pool table, amazing decks around the pool) but if I was going with a group that didn't like partying or needed more space or just had a few people, I'd chose the one next door. You won't go wrong with either one.
Everything was great. House is pretty new, spacious, and in perfect working order.
The outside area is amazing - I've been a resident in the area in the past for many years and I can tell you that such an expansive wraparound dock (you can see it in the pictures) is rare.
This house was simply stunning. When we arrived it was clean and welcoming. Patty was very helpful in locating items and promptly responded via calls and texts. We had 8 adults and 3 kids under three and the house accommodated us well. We spent most of our time, even on rainy days in the backyard pool. Dining, grocery stores, and shopping were all just a short drive. We did not want to leave this beautiful home. It was everything we had hoped for and then some. Some reviews speak about old and broken items but none that I noticed were a problem. We throughly enjoyed our family vacation here and have already recommended it to other family and friends.
This house has a lot of cockroaches inside the kitchen. Most things inside the house were old stuff. The Faucets were old and broken, loosing screws. Watch out for this owner. When we get there, AC unit was not allowed to turn down 75 degree as she has written the notes on the refrigerator. One day later, the AC unit was broken and leaked water on the floor. This owner blamed us for not closing the doors. She has billed me $500 extra to fix her AC unit. I have argued about the bill and she used F word to me. I am not recommend this house to anyone that I know. I had a bad time to rent this house from July 3 -10, 2015.
I know this is my personal message. I do not need the world to know about what I have been thru. Please just send this message to owner, so the owner knows how to adjust and help the next persons. Thanks
