About the property

Come and recapture the simple pleasures of life and experience the colors of "true" island living at its best. Koi One Vacation Rentals offers a pallet of tropical hues and Old Florida charm. Lushly landscaped settings, gulf views, a waterfall, seabirds, and maybe even glimpses of dolphins and manatees help create a unique and charm-filled escape. Each apartment is individually decorated to create its own independent statement and they are quietly nestled between the gulf and the bay.

We feature a lushly landscaped gated courtyard which leads you past our Koi pond that features a beautiful waterfall and plentiful outdoor seating. Our property is located across the road from the beach so its convenient to pop back and forth while enjoying all our beaches have to offer. We have two units available, each with a separate entrance, air conditioning, wireless internet, and cable TV.

The larger downstairs unit has two bedrooms (one with a queen and one with a full bed; both with plenty of closet space), one bathroom with shower, a full kitchen, and a large living space. This unit includes a small cafe-style seating area in front of a large picture window overlooking the Koi pond. Its the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or unwind after a long day of sun and fun.

We also have an second floor one bedroom (queen), one bathroom unit. It has a pull-out queen sleeper sofa, a full kitchen, bathroom with shower and a large living area. This unit features a very large sun deck which peeks at the gulf.

We have an outdoor shower to wash away the sand and we usually have some beach toys on hand for your use.

The property is fenced and we welcome pets with pre-approval!

Within walking distance (two blocks away) is historic Bridge Street with plenty of dining, shopping, a post office, miniature golf, live music, and plenty of places to chill out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. There is a pier on the bayside to walk along, and perhaps sit on the swings and enjoy watching the boats as they go by. And of course, you can fish from almost anywhere. The nearby ice cream shop adds a sweet treat at the end of any (or every) day. :-)

So whether your passion is tanning, shelling, fishing, shopping, boating, kayaking, birding, cruising, biking, or just relaxing, the island life with sun-filled days and warm calm evening breezes will create a heart full of precious memories.

The online calendar reflects availability for the downstairs two bedroom unit. Please contact the owner for availability of the upstairs unit.


Koi One Vacation Rentals is a non-smoking resort. We welcome guests of all ages, but children and pets must be supervised, especially in the outdoor courtyard near the pond.

Beautiful beach and the weather was perfect for December. Love the area and the only negative was traffic. Didn't need to drive once there but playing frogger with cars can be annoying.
