About the property

Nautical Waterfront Retreat on the Gulf of Mexico, Seconds Away From Open Water!

Cozy two bedroom, two bath waterfront home on the Gulf of Mexico with water views from the front and the back yard. Enjoy incredible views of the grass flats and the marsh from the front yard or take a 60 second boat ride to start fishing from your own private dock! Don't have a boat? No problem. Take out one of the two twelve foot kayaks and paddle your way out to a sunset on the water. After a long day day kick back and watch the large 60 inch HD TV with 100's of channels or stay in touch with friends & family with phone and high speed wireless internet. For those days with inclement weather, the kids can play Playstation 3 with over 20 games or watch a Blu-Ray or DVD. Plenty of chairs to sit out back while you cook your day's catch on either gas or charcoal grill.

Fantastic home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week after Kevin did a complete remodel of the kitchen and bathrooms, and painted inside and out. This place is gorgeous and very comfortable, with everything you need (all new) for a great vacation. The big plus for us was having our boat tied to the floating dock, and just hopping on and going fishing on the Gulf. This was probably the most relaxing vacation we have had in many years. Kevin responds to questions quickly and wants everyone who stays here to have a great experience.

Thank you Kevin!

Great visit to Hernando Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was fantastic overall. Kevin waa great to answer any questions quickly. VRBO app is great way to keep up on details of the home. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay for the most part. Only thing that we could ask for on our next visit is kayaks. I know its a cost to the owner but really that was the only thing lacking. Our teenage boys did lots of fishing and able to even view some manterees when on the dock. Thank you again Kevin.

Owner's Response: Dear Tim & Sonia, It was a pleasure having you. We have, in fact, added two brand new twelve foot kayaks this weekend. We've also added two more fishing poles for a total of four. We hope to have you book our home again in the future. Sincerely, Kevin

Very nice cozy home on a quiet street. It was very comfortable here and the location was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Kevin was quick with his responses to our questions. The house was very comfortable and the View was amazing on both sides of the home. The garage was perfect because we had a motorcycle and the bicycles in the garage were just an added bonus. Very nice bars and restaurants close to the property. We are looking forward to staying here again.

Overall nice stay at the Nautical Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had an overall nice stay in the area, which was our first visit.

We've broken down the review into a list of Pros/Cons which are from our perspective.

We gave it an overall rating of a 4 because the pros, do out way the cons and the owner was very receptive.


The owner was very receptive and professional to all emails and correspondence.

Security deposit was returned promptly.

The view from the home of the dock and channel were outstanding.

Since we were there for record high temps (85-89), the A/C unit worked fine.

No issues with any of the appliances while we were there. Great washer/dryer and supplies.

Saw manatee, fish, many different birds from the dock.

Convenient location to many restaurants, bars, boat launches, beaches, parks etc....

Nice TV's, cable, and internet access.


The home and some of the furnishings are a bit dated and needs some attention.

Painting-carpet stains-etc...

Bike tires (female bike - flat) owner did offer to drop off pump. We walked instead.

Cleaning staff could do a better deep cleaning between guests.

They did have renters prior to our stay, and trash was picked up, floors swept.

Overall a quiet neighborhood, however next door neighbors could be a bit loud at times.

Many cars and boats parked next door...and on street across from drive all week long.

(Again, not the owners fault.)

Enjoy your stay!!

Owner's Response: Dear Steven, Thank you for staying with us and for your review and feedback! Our guest's feedback and reviews are what help us strive to offer the best experience possible. That is why I'm excited to announce that we have a major remodel coming in the next few months! Some highlights of it include: new interior & exterior paint, all new kitchen cabinets and appliances, and completely remodeled bathrooms, just to name a few. This week will be adding a bike pump and a few new fishing poles. We have ordered the carpets to be treated and have raised your concerns with the cleaning staff. Again, thank you for your feedback and we welcome you to stay with us again in the future! Sincerely, Kevin

Cozy, quiet well decorated and equipped

  • 4 of 5

The house was everything it was claimed to be. Very clean and well equipped. The location is great with water on two sides. TVs in the two bedrooms as well as a large flat screen in a very comfortable living room. The dining table was in front of a window overlooking the water. There are plenty of local restaurants in the area to enjoy while you stay. I wish I had a boat to bring and put at the dock, as it is just minutes to the Gulf. The owner, Kevin, was highly responsive and very easy to work with. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a nice quiet, well equipped place to stay on the water.
