If you are looking for a place to relax, you will love the upper level of this 2006 built stilt home! It is a tropical paradise private retreat with 60 feet of waterfront direct-access
gulf frontage for your own personal enjoyment. This private property on the gulf coast waterfront is situated on a quiet seaside residential cul-de-sac with only six other homes. The back
sandy beach style "yard" has a large patio and dock overlooking a 90 foot
wide canal known as "cow creek". About 100 yards to the west of this
property is the open gulf. Water views from the upper screened porch,
great room, kitchen and master bedroom.
There is a very private feel to this area and most of the view from
the back is lush, natural landscape, so you won't be looking directly
across to the neighbors as you would with many other rental
properties. However, if you feel like getting out, there is plenty of
dining, shopping, golfing, and night life to enjoy within a mile or so
of the house.
The home is fully furnished with a Queen size
bed in the Master, two twin beds in the second bedroom, and a
full-size castro convertible sofa in the great room.
Sit in front of the built-in fireplace/barbeque on the fabulous tropical back
patio and you will view nature at its best! Many varieties of Ocean
fish and Sea birds: Manatee, Dolphin, Sheepshead, Mullet, Gar, Lady
Fish, Grouper, Pelicans, Ducks, Heron, Osprey, Eagle, Woodpecker, Blue
Jay, and much more. This bay is a fisherman's paradise with a bait
shop just a short walk down the lane! The water in this warm,
spring-fed canal is remarkably clear and lots fish can be seen at all
times from the patio. We have a 10 x 16 foot dock for your your
boating and swimming holiday pleasure. An 8 foot dinghy with oars is available
for you to use, or you can use our two-person, inflatable kayak to explore miles of nearby ocean and spring fed waterways, tropical lagoon, and wetlands. If you want to
rent a bigger boat they are available at the port of Hudson marina less than one mile away, or feel free to bring your own boat.
You will be renting the upper level of the home only. The separate lower level area/garage is used by the owner for storage & recreation area. The owner has a separate dock area for her own use as well.
Pets will be accepted on a case by case basis - feel free to ask.
Smoking is allowed only outdoors and in the covered screened porch areas. I've
set-up the porch to be as comfortable and relaxing as any other room
in the house and you can even watch the cable TV from there.
Many golf courses to choose from! Very inexpensive compared to other
