Old World Florida Style Home with Modern Updates


Property Details

Updated: Sep 3, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Step back to a time when life was simple; a time when homes were built with character and craftsmanship. A time when life was about family and creating memories with those you loved. Now step into 161 Gulf Island Drive and feel the transformation in you begin. This home is old world Florida with the modern updates of this era. Feel the tranquility this home eludes from it. Escape the stress of everyday life as you begin your vacation here in Paradise. Remember an era of years gone by and enjoy its warmth and comforts.

The owners of this home have recently remodeled it and added new furnishing, linens and appliances, while maintaining its old world charm. Three bedrooms and two full baths complete this home. It comfortably accommodates a maximum of 6 persons and is a pet friendly home. For those with allergies we have designated this property smoke free.

The large, spacious living room has a flat screen TV, plenty of seating, and a sleeper sofa for an additional sleeping area. It opens to both the front and rear decks where you can sit back and relax to the daily happenings of beach life.

The generous sized dining room has a traditional farm-house style table for 8. You’ll enjoy preparing meals in the kitchen with its new granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Everything you need to prepare all your meals has been supplied.

Each bedroom has its own in-room TV. The master and first guest bedroom have queen size beds, while the second guest bedroom has two twin beds. Two full bathrooms, and a laundry room with washer and dryer, are also included.

Two of the greatest features of this home are the deeded beach access and bay front land. Just a one minute walk will have you sitting with your feet in the sand on the Gulf of Mexico. Walk through the beautiful, covered, beachfront pavilion that’s been built just for this neighborhoods use. Here you’ll find tables and chairs beachfront to sit at under the covered shelter, and a beachside BBQ for a picnic lunch or sunset dinner you might want to enjoy, while on the beach.

Walk one minute in the opposite direction from the house, towards the Bay, and find another waterfront treasure. Covered and open picnic areas span the waterfront, leading down to the boat dock and fishing pier. Rent a boat or kayak for the day and have a place to tie off to if you wish. Direct fishing and boating access are here for your use. Or just enjoy sitting bayside in the early morning hours watching the sunrise, and beachside in the evening watching the sunset.
