Holiday Rental House
This two-unit (up/down) modern, stilt beach cottage was built in 2005 and sits on 90 feet of natural waterfront canal with open access to the Gulf of Mexico. Teaming with Florida's nature coast charm, wildlife abounds here, yet very close to shopping, and entertainment activities. We have dolphins, manatees, myriad types of fish, and birds (pelicans, herons, osprey, etc.) visit daily! The water here is very clear and swimming right from the dock is so refreshing. This is also a fantastic fishing area: Redfish, snapper, mullet, and so many more. There's a bait shop a half-mile down the road, also an old-time ice cream shop the other direction. We have a canoe and 2 bicycles you can use to explore the area. There are also many public beaches and marinas within 20 minute drive.

So much to see and do here, but most guests have spent a great deal of their time just enjoying the beautiful back yard/water. I live in the downstairs unit, so I am available to assist in making your vacation the best ever. Feel free to ask questions. More
