Relax and unwind in this tropical waterfront paradise. Just spectacular views of the open water from every room. Start your morning by watching the sailboats cruise by as you have your coffee. King master suite with sitting area opens to a brilliant sundeck. Private bath includes a garden tub, double vanity, and double shower. Queen guest bedroom on first floor with full bath is decorated in tropical flora. Second Queen bedroom on top floor with a full bath is a seasheller's delight, with glass doors opening to a private deck and fantastic water view! Bonus or 'playroom' has panoramic views and opens to a spectacular sundeck where you can watch the Ospreys and Manatees play at sunset. Twin beds are comfortable for young guests! Sunset dining is too wonderful for words...either on your deck or in the elegant dining room. Practically the entire west side of the home is glass for unbelievable water views. The elevator will effortlessly take you to the pool and parking area. A two story screened lanai compliments the pool area, with gas BBQ grill, lounge chairs and dining table. Prepare food in your Island Kitchen and dine poolside. Take a hot shower in the full pool bath when returning from your fishing trip. A 10,000 lb electric boat lifts is furnished for your use. Dock and fish cleaning station are new and ready to go! Catch fish right from your seawall, bring your own boat, or rent one locally. Sit in the waterside gazebo to relax with your favorite beverage after a happy day at the island. Florida living at it's best! Just bring your beach clothes and food and drink to enjoy...everything else is here!!!

About Teri Rigsby

Purchased our dream home in March 2012 and have completely renovated it inside and out! We have decorated it with splashes of Key West decor and made it into a tropical paradise. Private and comfortable, room for family and friends, and everything you can wish for when you think of your best vacation in Florida is here. We are Florida natives, semi-retired, with a son in college. We love to travel but haven't found anyplace as wonderful at this. Hope you enjoy our little resort as much as we do!!!

What makes this house unique

The breathtaking sunsets on the deck outside the living room and dining room afford this home with the atmosphere which lends perfectly to an event such as an engagement party, intimate wedding or anniversary party. Fantastic photo opportunities here and great place for gatherings!

Spectacular View!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, it is your own private paradise. The views are spectacular!!! The Key West style home is everything you can only imagine, until you see it.. Pool, outside kitchen, large boat dock, with a lift, the grounds, everything was just beautiful. So relaxing. Close to restraunts and shopping. We would recommend this property to everyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing paridise get away. My grandson is a fishing fool and he was fishing from the dock from sunrise to sunset. He caught several fish and had a great time. We all enjoyed this home and can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed our home! Hope you made lots of "Memorial Day Memories" with family and friends...as well as catching a few fish. Thanks for taking such good care of the place. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we'll be looking forward to seeing your boat pull up to our dock again next year! Best to you! The Rigsbys

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast and this house couldn't have been nicer. The owners were great and made sure our questions were addressed.

The view was perfect (if you're into that sort of thing) and the water was just as nice.

This place has everything you need for a great stay.

My husband and I spent a week at this fantastic house. It is by far, the best VRBO house we have stayed in. The owners, Teri and Wes have done a marvelous job on the house, and were very accomodating. We enjoyed exploring the area as much as we did watching the wildlife from the deck of the house. Every thing mentioned in the VRBO listing is absolutely true! Thanks for a great time!

Luxury waterfront vacation home located on the Intercoastal Waterway Marker 28 at Gasparilla Pass! With panoramic views from this two story Key West style home and deepwater dockage and lifts for two boats, this piece of paradise on beautiful Cape Haze has it all. Pristene beaches are just across the water on Boca Grande or Little Gasparilla island, with some of the best shelling in Florida. Fine waterfront restaurants within one mile but enjoy entertaining here and watch the breathtaking sunset while you dine. Ospreys and Manatees right outside your door to enjoy while you have your morning coffee. Fish from your own dock! Get and early Tee Time and finish your Golf Game in time to come back for a dip in the pool, then hop in your boat to hurry down to Cabbage Key for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Explore the Lighthouse Museum in Boca Grande but, save time for some first class shopping on the Island or at Placida Villiage. Rent kayaks and explore the backwaters. Don Pedro State Park is on the barrier island just across the Intercoastal Waterway to the North. Dance the night away to live entertainment featured at most of the waterfront restaurants or simply watch the stars on your top deck while sipping your favorite beverage. Deep sea fishing charters leave daily from the Placida Villiage and Boca Grande. Our waters are clear and turquoise for perfect snorkeling and diving. Treasures are at your fingertips! Port Charlotte offers movie theaters and more shopping. Englewood abound with antique shops and cafes. Venice is just north and offers more exploring opportunities! This area has serenity in the private community of Cape Haze but, just a stone's throw away from almost anything your heart desires!!!
