vacation rental description

Spend your vacation at a spacious, beautiful, PET FRIENDLY, WATERFRONT  home on
200 ft. of tropically landscaped  open waterfront. Private HEATED TROPICAL LAGOON POOL with large TIKI HUT AND BAR . The BOATER'S PACKAGE = unlimited use of Casa's 21ft. Bennington PONTOON BOAT that accommodates 10.  Or The CAPTAIN'S PACKAGE which includes the pontoon plus the fun 10 1/2 ' hardbottom zodiac for zipping around the bay, fishing and exploring.

 Coconut palms, orchids, frangipani surround you. This is not a canal home or a condo.
Mangroves and an intimate, private sandy beach on the Manatee River
are rare if not impossible to find and make a perfect retreat that
your friends, family and water loving dogs will fall in love with.  There is a sparkling new lagoon pool with waterfall, baja ledge, cocktail table and tiki bar, all surrounded by palms and all types of tropical plantings.


This spacious, beautiful home on the Manatee River has never been
offered as a vacation home before. In the town of Palmetto, a
virtually undiscovered "old Florida" historic town just across
the "Green" bridge from Bradenton, you will drive down 6th Street
under huge oak trees with hanging Spanish moss. Enter the private
gate and begin your one of a kind vacation.

Facing due West on secluded Hookers Bay, just 5 minutes by boat to
Tampa Bay, the sunsets are unsurpassed and are a daily main event.
As you sit on the deck under the huge banyan tree, enjoy a glass of
wine or your favorite cocktail as the show begins. Every evening,
thousands of birds fly by at the first hint of dusk, heading home to
Emerson Point, a bird sanctuary just 2 miles north. Great blue
herons, spoonbill rosettes, sea gulls, cormorants, night herons,
skimmers, egrets, pelicans often stop by for a snack of baitfish
right on your beach, just feet away from you. The thought of all of
this wearing you out? Just lay in the hammock where even in a good
rain, the banyan will keep the rain drops away.

Right about now is the beginning of the perfect fishing time,
usually signaled by a pair of dolphins, Mary Kay and Lola, who
routinely cruise through, running fish out of the water, a true
spectacle to watch. Hookers Bay is known as the best fishing spot
between the Manatee River and Tampa Bay. Snook, redfish, trout,
flounder - no boat required. The Manatee River is named that for a
reason. Your "front yard" is a legally protected manatee feeding
area. Want a closer look? Wade out in water as shallow as waist
deep and watch from as close as a foot away. Or you can see them
from shore as they come up for air. And don't forget to keep the
tradition of ringing the bell at the last glimpse of the setting sun.

Fish, kayak, swim, bike to the marina for lunch. Take a 20 minute
ride to Anna Maria Island. Visit the historic fishing village of
Cortez. Rent a boat or hire a captain to take you to Egmont Key,
Fort Desoto, or many of the waterside restaurants nearby. But first
you will have to drag yourself away from Hookers Bay, a tough thing
to do!

The home itself is large with an amazing cook's kitchen. Two
refrigerators, granite countertops, two sinks -- even someone who
doesn't cook will want to! Fix a cocktail at the wet bar. Eat in
the dining room that seats 12 while watching the water outside the
oversized sliding glass doors. The screened porch offers shelter if
an afternoon shower happens or casual dining with family and
friends. Lounge in the living room beside the fireplace or entertain
friends in the open kitchen/living area. Watch the big screen t.v.
or listen to music on the stereo from speakers in most rooms. There
are no stairs - one story only. This home is easy to reach with
reasonably priced flights from just about anywhere to Sarasota or
Tampa. As cliché as it sounds, this is truly paradise in your own
private waterfront home! Discover the "real" Florida!
