Overview

Florida House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (sleeps 6) with 4 seat golf cart available for rent.

This 3/2, WiFi, pet friendly, home on the water is perfect for couples or families desiring a sub-tropical get-away any time of year. Water views and private dock for fishing or leisure time is just a few steps out the back sliding door. You are welcome to use our bikes, beach and fishing equipment and rent the 4 seat golf cart during your visit. On the table you will find a Guest Notebook with lots of helpful information about the house, Nettles Island Resort and the surrounding communities including maps, things to do, restaurants, etc

Nearby are numerous activities and services available when you are ready to explore the Nettles Island community: 2 pools, hot tubs, beach and Beach Club, Marina, Clubhouse/ Recreation Center including sports facilities, inside and outside games, Gym, Stores, Restuarants, etc... all within walking distance.

Nettles Island is a resort community encompassing a 24-hour security gated neighborhood development between the saltwater Indian River Lagoon and the ocean and located between the Ft. Pierce inlet to the north and the St. Lucie inlet to the south.

The private and unspoiled beach and Nettles Island Beach Club heated pool, snack bar and restrooms with showers is 4 blocks away. Walking, bike riding and golf carts are the most common forms of transportation in the community. You are welcome to rent our 4 seat golf cart with side flaps for $100/week or $250/month.

Bring your boat to explore the lagoon, spoil islands and inlets. You are welcome to tie up to the dock which is equipped to accommodate a 24 ft. boat. The boat lift is unavailable.

You can walk or jog for miles and miles along the gently sloping wide beach seeing very few people or bring a flashlight to the beach at night in the summer months and often observe the giant sea turtles come ashore to dig a nest in the sand and lay their eggs...but no touching allowed by law.

The Neighborhood: In the commercial center you will find a marina, beachwear shop, restaurant and best of all, The Village Grocer. There you will find groceries, baked goods, sandwiches, beer, wine, bait, rent fishing gear, rent movies, buy souvenirs or just have a nice chat with the locals.

At the other end of the development along the waterway, you will find the activity clubhouse (Rec Center) and lots to do: tennis, horseshoes, mini golf, shuffleboard, bocce ball, basketball, tot playground, larger heated pool with 2 hot tub, kiddie pool and restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, workout room, pool & ping pong tables, arcade games, computers with internet and more.

The House: Soothing island colors and comfortable 'beach' decor will welcome you as you enter the cottage. A wall of windows in the family room and kitchen provides a serene view of the waterway on the quiet East seawall of Nettles Island. It is not uncommon to see dolphins in the morning, many varieties of birds, fish jumping out of the water and occasionally a manatee.

The kitchen has all the major appliances and is fully stocked for cooking and dining. The adjoining family room has a 37' flat screen TV with a DVD player and a surround sound system and cord for an iPod.

The larger bedroom (sea glass room) includes a comfortable queen bed, a small bathroom with a nice size shower, and a 32' flat screen TV. The second bedroom (mermaid room) also has a queen bed. The third bedroom (sea turtle room) has 2 twin beds. All bedrooms have closets and dressers. All rooms have ceiling fans and central A/C and heat.

The Dock: Walk a few steps out the back door to get a closer look at the boats slowly motoring by or cast a line and catch fresh fish for dinner. The dock has a built in bench along with portable table and chairs which make it a great place to fish, eat, read and relax while taking in the view. In the cooler months, open up the sliding door to enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze throughout the house.

Upon check in please review the Guest Notebook. The house will be stocked with approximately 2 days worth of necessities: toilet paper, tissues, soaps, shampoo for the bathrooms and dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, trash bags and coffee in the kitchen. Stop in to the Village Grocer down the street or Publix supermarket to purchase food and necessities for the duration of your stay. All bed linens, towels (including beach towels) and kitchen towels are provided.

Please be aware that the seawall is very close to the back door. It is recommended that all renters, especially children, be able to swim. You will find a ladder and life ring on the dock, but these items may not be enough to prevent a drowning due to accidental fall ins.

Since we are close to the seawall, the cottage is up 4' feet; therefore, upon entering there are 8 steps up to the living area.

We know you will enjoy your stay. It is a wonderful place.

About Allison Warren

We have lived in south Florida since 1987 and purchased the property and built the cottage to use for our family fun in the summers near the beach. Since our 3 daughters are 'all grown up' we are happy to share the use of the house for others to enjoy. Nettles Island is the place for creating happy memories!

Allison Warren purchased this house in 1998

Why Allison Warren chose Florida

We love the beautiful uncrowded and unspoiled beach as well as all the Nettles Island resort has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The view and access to the dock on the waterway is very special from inside the house and sitting or fishing on the dock. In the evenings we enjoy sitting on the dock bench with a glass of wine, sharing the day's events and watching the moon rise over the water some special evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have many wonderful entries in the Guest Book that may help you decide if this is the vacation home for you. Although I listed them today, all are taken word for word from the Guest Book. Hopefully if you choose our Nettles Island home to be your vacation home, you, too, will leave an entry in the Guest Book and also enjoy reading other who have come before you.

Good locatin

  • 3 of 5

Location is great, overlooking the water with our own dock. Great for fishing or just relaxing. We've travelled all over the Florida area over the years and this was week 2 of a 4 week road trip. Location on this property seemed more important than the property though. This was the smallest of all the properties we stayed in and unfortunately the most expensive, the others were villas with their own pool. We found the living space small, only 2 in our party and the sofas uncomfortable if you were spending any time in the property. Nettles Island is a Condo Community. Facilities onsite are good and a mix of RVs, fixed mobile homes and permanent buildings. It's a bit congested and packed in, but OK for a week, reminded us of an up market caravan park.

One thing is you MUST have insect repellent, we were full of bites by the end, even using repellant.

All in all, in our opinion, it's too expensive for what you get. Might revisit the location but not here.

Fantastic trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. It had everything we needed. The fishing was great right of the deck,both pools were gorgeous and you could walk right in. Enjoyed a couple games of shuffleboard and ping pong and pool but there was so much more today we're going to have to come back. Thank you so much Allison for letting us stay and we're looking forward to doing it again.

Excellent! Beautiful home on the Indian River with every amenity you could possibly want!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying on Nettles for a week in April every year since 2012. Our previous rental property sold, so we located and booked this one. Everything was outstanding, from the use of the golf cart so we didn't have to rent one separately, the available wi-fi (important since it's a "working" vacation for me), fresh clean linens and towels, laundry in the unit - everything to make our stay comfortable, just pack and go! Nothing beats coffee on the dock in the morning!! Highly recommend - hope we get to book again next year!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! The house is beautiful! We loved fishing off the dock and watching the dolphins swim. I would definitely recommend this lovely place to friends and will rent again. It is very well kept, clean and stocked with necessities. Allison was wonderful about answering questions and communicating. Terrific place to rent and wonderful owners to rent from!

wonderful, relaxing experience.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated beach decor. Fully equipped kitchen, great floor plan, spotlessly clean. Renting from Allison was easy. Any questions I had were answered immediately. Pleasantly surprised to find beach chairs, beach towels, fishing gear, bikes, even raincoats! The house is virtually soundproof so it was very relaxing and quiet and hanging out on the dock on the water was an added bonus. . Anxious to book for next year! The new restaurant on the premises served one of the best seafood entrees, highly recommended! Nettles Island is very kid friendly as well.

The house is located in Nettles Island Resort which is on a barrier island named south Hutchinson Island in St. Lucie County Florida. The historic seaside towns of Jensen Beach, Stuart and Fort Pierce are easily accessed by short scenic drives. These quaint downtown areas provide casual shops, local restaurants, theaters, green markets and festivals.

Every Thursday night Jensen Beach has a fun street festival with live music, special exhibits from local artists and shop owners. It is a very family friendly event and well attended by local residents and tourists.

The local theature (Barn Theature) is 7 miles to the south which showcases good local talent well know for their entertaining comedy plays.

A few miles west on Ocean Drive you will find historic Stuart, another quaint historic town along the intercoastal waterway a little larger than Jensen Beach with a wide variety of locally owned shops, restuarants and the Lyric Theature know for bringing in 'big name' entertainment.

Travel north 11 miles north on Ocean Drive to another historic town of Ft Pierce which has a larger variety of museums, shops, restaurants, Sunrise Theature and state parks.

Notes:
