About the property

Spectacular 3 Bedroom Home With Pool & Bayview, 3 Bath

Tranquility in a luxurious setting: Located in a peaceful & private area of the island, this fabulous direct bayfront 3Bed/3Bath, 3-story Key West-style home includes beautiful views of Lemon Bay from every room, and the beach is just a short walk across the road. I don't mean to be bragging, but I know you'll enjoy our home as much as we do. Our home comes with upscale, tasteful, and comfortable furnishings.

The Main living level includes an open floor plan for enjoying time together with family & friends. It includes high ceilings, a lovely sizeable kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a large screened lanai with a wet bar and gas grill overlooking the heated pool and the bay. The top floor bonus-room has a sleeper sofa and an open deck also with a gorgeous view of Lemon Bay. The bottom floor can be used as a separate 'in-law' apartment or as an additional bedroom, bathroom, and living area.

The large heated swimming pool area, located just off of the additional living suite, is great for entertaining guests, or for a peaceful swim, and includes a gas grill. The boatdock offers quick and easy boating access to the Inter-coastal Waterway and Lemon Bay. This area is well-known for it's excellent fishing - redfish, trout, snook, or Tarpon, to name just a few. Or you may enjoy kayaking to catch sight of a pod of manatees or dolphins.

Access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a short walk across the road, where you can find loads of seashells and fossilized sharks' teeth on the beach. If you're lucky you may catch sight of dolphins playfully jumping. This is a fantastic island retreat for the entire family!

There are nice restaurants nearby, grocery stores within a short drive, and plenty of shopping areas. The Olde Englewood Village is home to a weekly Farmer's Market, antique shops, local artist shops, and Lemon Bay Playhouse. Sarasota and Fort Myers are nice day-trips from here. Orlando is about a 2 & 1/2 hour drive from here.

Good for family

  • 4 of 5

My sister and her family rented this house for their vacation and invited my husband and I to join them. Its a nice house and plenty of room for a family. We enjoyed the pool and beach and time to be together cooking and playing games. The house needs many minor repairs that we couldn't believe weren't taken care of before we got there. There were ants on the 3rd floor and the pool was dirty when we got there as well a major crack by railing that could cause injury if you weren't careful. The house was clean and nicely decorated and was a short walk to the beach. The other major problem we had was that the neighbors were installing a new seawall and there was construction equipment and a generator running from 8-6pm every day. SO, the house was not so Tranquil.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed staying at this nice bay front home across from the beach. It is unfortunate there was rain almost every day washing dirt into the pool, and the neighbor had dock construction going on at the time, both circumstances totally out of our control. The pool is cleaned every week. This is one of our more popular rental homes, so it's hard to schedule repairs between check-ins. I'm pleased to let you know that all of the repairs have been taken care of, and we hope you and your family will come back again.
