Description

Perched on the bank of Amberjack Creek, this inviting home is surrounded by mature tropical plantings, including more than fifty palms of eight species (which is why I call this place 'El Palmeral' - The Palm Grove). Also, avocado, mango, bananas, bromeliads, orchids and much more. There is a private dock equipped with a 3,500 lb. boat lift, water, electricity and an underwater 'snook' light. Our dock is on Amberjack Creek, a tidal inlet creek, which provides shallow-draft access to the Gulf of Mexico. The creek abounds with wildlife - fish from the dock or watch for the Sandhill Cranes, Manatees and the throngs of leaping mullet, among others. The dock includes a 6'x8' floating dock extension which makes launching of the two kayaks a breeze! The kayaks are high-tech, Swedish-designed 'Point 65 North' modular kayaks, which can be configured as one person or tandem kayaks. The shell-covered back yard ties the creek side-setting seamlessly into the 1,300 square foot screen-enclosed pool and lanai, for what one visitor described as an 'obnoxiously paradisical' experience. This is truly a 4-season destination, with its lush tropical plantings, screen-caged, heated pool with therapy jet bench and large screened/glassed lanai with 2 overhead fans. The pool area includes an awning-covered dining area with a teak dining table and seating for 6 to 8. The lanai has two sets of pocket, double sliding doors from the house - one from the kitchen/dining area and the other from the Master Bedroom - which, when open, expand those spaces to the outside. The screened lanai itself has a system of compound sliding doors, which can be fully opened to take advantage of pleasant weather and the almost constant, gentle Gulf breeze, or closed to allow the space to be heated or cooled as necessary. Whether opened or closed the lanai is a wonderful place to entertain, or simply enjoy the view of the tropical plantings, creek and frequent wildlife. The home can accomodate 6 adults and 2 toddlers. As members of the Cape Haze POA, we have access to the association's 400 yd long, private, Gulf beach, adjacent to Cape Haze on Don Pedro Island. The beach is accessible, using our kayaks, from Don Pedro Island State Park's 100 acre land base, .9 miles from our property. It is a 4-minute (280 yard) paddle from the Park's dock to our community dock on the island, then a 5-minute (500 yard) walk to the Gulf beach (see the map of the route in the photo section). In addition to the beaches adjacent to us on Don Pedro (Palm) Island, which are accessible by kayak, boat or ferry, the closest beach by car is at 19th St. on Gasparilla Island (Boca Grande), about 10 minutes away. Once you reach 19th St. there is beach access on every street all the way to the south end of the island, which is another 3 1/2 miles. So there are literally dozens of Gulf beaches. You can also drive north to Manasota Key in Englewood which is only about 15 minutes away. Once on Manasota Key there are three major county park beaches at the north, middle and south end of the Key, as well as Stump Pass State Park, which is at the very south end of the Key and is absolutely stunning. It is only 4 minutes by car to the Boca Grande Causeway and minutes (1 to 15) to multiple Gulf beaches, fine-dining restaurants, multiple state parks, nature preserves, walking & biking trails, boat tours, fishing trips, etc. THE TURNKEY ADVANTAGE Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified. All photos, amenities, calendar, and rates are 100% accurate. We will notify you proactively when early check-in / late check-outs are possible and you'll receive the comforts of home with a starter supply of shampoo, soaps, paper products and hotel-quality towels and linens. And we make it easy to stay with us! Drive straight to your rental and access the rental with a unique lock code that we give only to you. All TurnKey rentals follow local/state tax rules. Each reservation includes applicable taxes, cleaning fee, and Property Damage Protection policy.
