Quiet Residential Neighborhood

This lovely 4 bedroom 2 bath Florida vacation rental home with private dock is located in an upper class residential neighborhood. It is within 2 miles of shopping centers and private beaches. It is not in the tourist area commonly associated with crowds. There is no automobile traffic because the house is on a short street that ends in a cul de sac. This is a NO SMOKING HOUSE.

Beautiful Private or Public Local Beaches

There are several very nice secluded public and private beaches just minutes from the house. These are not the tourist beaches, they are beaches that local Floridians who are "in the know" use.... They have shaded picnic facilities, and trees to set up your chairs under, or plenty of sandy sunshine if you prefer.. You can bicycle to the private beach on the two provided bicycles!

House is on the water - backyard view

The house is located on the water with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. The back yard has a long sea wall that has both a floating dock and boat davits. The water view down the canal shows almost every house has at least one boat. Use of a free boat comes with the house rental.

Watch the fish and water birds in your back yard

Lots of fish winter in the canals behind the homes in Gulf Harbors. Daily, you can see large snook cruising the canals. Tarpon also inhabit the canals behind these homes. It seems that these man made canals provide a "natural habitat" that the fish find very inviting during the cooler months.

'Old Blue', a Great Blue Heron is a daily visitor to our backyard. He is ever vigilant for that free handout of fish. You should be very careful around the Great Blue Herons and the snowy White Egrets, they have sharp bills that they use for gathering fish. I have never heard of an incident where they were responsible for accidentally putting someone's eye out.. but I am always very careful with all wild life. After all, they are predators....

Catch redfish and snook

I have several pictures of my son and his friends, proudly displaying the fish they have caught from the sea wall. The fish include redfish, snook, jack, mangrove snapper, catfish, and stingray... A wire bait trap to catch bait fish comes with the house, along with fishing poles.... You can catch bait fish from the sea wall, put them on the fishing poles provided and catch fresh fish that you can prepare .. For bigger pictures, click on the picture!!!

Provided with the house

The house comes with all linens for beds, baths, and kitchen. All appliances, washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove for cooking food, microwave for warming leftovers.. All you will need to supply is FOOD and DRINK. A family from France stayed in the beautiful home, and he commented how well equiped the home was compared to the villa/homes he has rented in the French countryside. We have tried to think of every convenience including a fully outfitted kitchen. Even a weeks worth of kitchen/bath consumables comes with the house. If you rent for a month or more, you may, of course, want to shop for the brands of soap and such that you are used to.

With the motor, you are able to fish the grass flats, usually catching speckeled trout, redfish, snook, mangrove snapper, etc. There is also an island about 4 miles offshore, named Anclote Key, which is a Florida State Park and Wildlife sanctuary. It has very veautiful beaches and is only accessable by boat or airplane. There is even an abandoned lighthouse on the island, which some people have been known to climb.. Beware the lighthouse is NOT maintained and has NO protective railing at the top. If you JUMP, FALL, or are PUSHED you would certaintly not survive the fall !! .. So, beware, and climb at your own risk!!...... and be sure to take a camera !!...
