This beautiful, very quiet and peaceful home in an exclusive residential community is just minutes to the beaches. It is situated on the water. Watch magnificent sunsets from the private community beach, one mile away. Fishing is excellent.

Florida beaches in the area: The beaches along the Sun Coast of Florida are some of the most beautiful and safest in the world. These include the following: Anclote Key State Park and Game Preserve, Fred Howard Park, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater Beach, Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island, Treasure Island, St Pete Beach, and Fort De Soto Park.

The string of beaches from Anclote Key in the north to Fort De Soto in the South covers 36 miles and has some of the best beaches in the United States, including Hawaii.

These beaches range from isolated, undeveloped tropical islands accessible only by boat (Anclote Key, Caladesi Island) to packed tourist beaches with all the souvenir shops, grouper sandwich shops, and nightclubs. The people that rank beaches place Caladesi Island State Park, Anclote Key State Park, and Fort De Soto park in the top ten beaches in the United States, with most of the other top ten beaches being in Hawaii.

There are more than 20 'barrier islands' called 'keys', along the Florida west coast. The Gulf waters that lap on the shores of these island are warm and clear. The slope of the beach is very gentle, making the beaches safe for small children to play at the water's edge.

Every possible water sport can be enjoyed along these beaches including fishing in the grass flats, deep-sea fishing, boating, sailing, canoeing, sea kayaking, SCUBA diving, windsurfing, shelling, para-sailing, swimming, and water skiing.

1.

Anclote Key State Park and Game Preserve

More than 1,000 years ago, this island was pushed up from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico to rest on a limestone platform. It is still slowly growing today and its size has increased by more than 25% since 1956. This four mile long island is one of the few truly unspoiled and undeveloped islands left along the Florida coast.

Anclote Lighthouse

The abandoned lighthouse on the southern end of this remote island adds to the islands fragile beauty and character. The lighthouse was built in the 1880's and served almost 100 years to protect the mariners in the Gulf of Mexico. With the advent of more modern navigational tools such as the Long Range Navigation System (LORAN), and later the Global Position System (GPS), the lighthouse became obsolete. It was decommissioned in 1984 and for the last 16 years has been abandoned.

Anclote Wildlife

Rare and endangered birds and turtles inhabit Anclote Key.

Visitors travel to the island by boat every year to enjoy the more than 43 species of birds that live there including the American oystercatcher, bald eagle, and ospreys (sometimes called fish eagles). The ospreys have numerous nesting sites in the tall pine trees that cover the island. Turtles can also be spotted on the island including endangered loggerheads and green turtles.

Anclote Activities

The main activity on the island is swimming in the shallow Gulf waters that are as warm as a bathtub in the summers. The gradual slope of the beaches makes it easy for oldsters as well as youngsters to enjoy the clear warm waters, which are said by some to provide comfort for the soul as well as the body. Shelling is also a favorite activity. Several species of shells can be collected. Sand dollars can also be found by digging your toes into the sand in about two or three feet of water and feeling the sand dollars under the surface of the sand

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this home. As previous reviews state, the floor plan is great for extended family. We had the master at one end of the house, with our daughter and her husband and kids at the opposite end. The pool was great, especially for the young children. They didn't want to go anywhere else - just wanted to stay at the house and pool all day long every day. Fishing was fun off the dock, although we didn't really catch anything worth keeping. We lucked out - weather was perfect and we had no problems. The house is fully equipped with everything we needed. Ralph was very responsive to my e-mails and questions. I would definitely recommend the house to anyone!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this beautiful home. Had a wonderful time. This home had everything you need. The pool was great and having the dock out there was a God send. The canal leads you straight to the Gulf for fishing or just hanging at the sandbar. The pool was great for the kids and their room was so spacious. It's a split plan so there's plenty of privacy. My husband and I took the master and my daughter, son in law and kids had the other two bedrooms and bath. Perfect for extended families. The kitchen is fully equipped. You don't need nothing but your food and clothes. Highly recommended this home. One of the best vacation rentals we've ever rented.

Family Fun Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

Twelve night family get together of poolside fun. I'd like to start by saying that my initial and subsequent contact with owner, Ralph could not have been more pleasant. He was responsive to all emails very quickly and also very friendly. The house is open and spacious but we spent more time outside by the pool and fishing off of the dock. The beds were comfortable which is hit or miss in many rentals. I would suggest that you add a photo of the master bedroom which was very comfortable, private access to the pool, and private bathroom/shower. Although we experienced no problems, the dishwasher door is on it's last leg and we really needed a couple of non-stick pans for cooking. Simple fixes. Overall, a very comfortable and affordable vacation rental with a caring owner.
