The dock is also prefect for fishing, suntanning or just relaxing and taking in the incredible view and natural wildlife.

There is a small private beach and inlet on the property perfect to access the water for a leisurely swim, kayaking or paddle boarding (numerous rental outfits are in the area) down the mangrove lined bayou or out it's mouth into the aquamarine blue waters of the Longboat Pass.

Cathy M.
The property itself and the location were breathtaking. It was just the two of us for our 25th anniversary for the week, but it could easily accommodate a family with three more people or another couple. We rented a boat for the week and docked it at the house. It was so much fun exploring the area. The views from the upper porch were incredible and sitting on the lower dock observing the wildlife up close was wonderful. Everything one could want for cooking and day to day life is at your fingertips. Many great restaurants and beautiful beaches. We have been to the area several times, and would gladly return to this house again. Kristin was very responsive with the booking and Barbara was there to greet us and was very welcoming and accommodating. Thank you for sharing it!
