For years I have vacationed in Hutchinson Island and fell in love with quaint Jensen Beach and Historic Downtown Stuart.The minute I would cross the bridge into Hutchinson Island it was like leaving all the stress of City life behind. After losing my father to cancer in 2013 his advice on finding time to relax made me take the plunge to search for this home away from home on the beach. I offer this home to those who also need to get away, whether you're coming from up North for a few months or weeks, or to locals that just need an escape. I hope you will enjoy this home and Hutchinson Island as much as I do.
Mary Vega purchased this bungalow in 2015
Nettles offers so many amenities, people are super friendly, you don't have to leave the Island if you don't want to, everything you need is there. And, if you do want to venture out there's plenty to do in close by Jensen Beach and Stuart. You're 2 hours from Miami, 2 hours to Daytona Beach, Disney Theme Parks and Universal.
We had an absolutely wonderful time!! Mary was as sweet and helpful as anyone could hope for. The gated community was relaxed and friendly. We had a private beach, several pools, great fishing areas, and a golf cart at our disposal. There were dolphins playing in the marina. The house was bright, open, and sweetly decorated. We were in FL for 8 days and split the trip between this listing and one in the Keys. Our only regret is not booking all 8 days at this place. We had 3 teenagers with us who are hard to impress, and they didn't want to leave.We are already planning to go back next year to this location and would absolutely recommend it.
I just want to start off by saying that our vacation was wonderful. We spent a week on Nettles Island. From the moment I walked into the cottage I knew it would be great. The home smelled so clean, everything was so perfectly and beautifully decorated, and it had all I needed! (Beach towels, beach chairs, toothpaste, etc.) When we were coordinating the rental, Mary told me that all I had to do was bring my clothes and toothbrush. She was right! I can't say enough of Mary. She was always available and gave us great information as far as where to eat and what to do. We spent most of our time at the beach which was so relaxing and safe. I can't wait to rent this cottage again in the future. Thank you Mary!
We really enjoyed the time spent in this cottage, even though it was just 4 days but it fell like it was a whole week vacation with all the things we were able to do. You feel like you are in a resort. Also, Mary (the owner) guides you with so many things to do, places to go specially restaurants, like Shuckers, Crawdaddy's, Jan's Place, Sauder's Landing and Strawberry's. Mary is always available for any questions or concern you might have. I loved the communication she keeps with you from the beginning and all throughout. You can tell she is a person that cares about the people that rents her place. We all loved the island, the beach was beautiful, water was clear. We visited Historic Downtown Jensen Beach and went to the little shops. When it comes to the cottage, I completely fell in love with it, I like the way is decorated, all beach theme and fresh, we fell like it was our home and we treated it like so. . Mary I want to thank you for your guidance, help and support we had from you through all this time, since we starter being interested in renting your place, while the renting process and also while we were there. You were always available and quick to respond.

I am considered a beach freak. All my life I have loved the beach and has been my favorite getaway now that I'm older. Every year I may vacation anywhere but regardless where I go, I always spend a week at the beach. This year I'll spend three weeks in hotels on the beach. I have visited most resorts on the Florida cost. I guess you can say that I'm not easily impressed by a house on the beach. However, Footsteps took my breath away. It's the combination of good things that made Footsteps a great vacation. The people over the whole resort where awesome. Everyone from the security guard that gave me directions to the employee that tends to the miniature golf. The house was perfect, modest and well equip. The owner thought of everything the I might need in the house the make me and my family very comfortable. Two (not crowded) pools and a beautiful private beach puts the icing on the cake. My family and I had a great time. Our week went by quickly an soon we were ready to return home. It was one of those unforgettable vacations.
Thank you Mary for the wonderful time we had, for sure we will return.
I was in urgent need of a place on/near the beach for a "surprise" visit from sons. Mary graciously worked with me to make this happen. We took advantage of many of the amenities Nettles Island offers, tennis, pools, beach-just to mention a few. We had dinner at Shuckers (just across the road at main entrance) and my personal favorite, The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House(Mary Frances Langford's former estate), just a short drive away. Mary makes herself available for total communication and guest comfort. We had plenty of room and items needed for a wonderful visit. My need was spontaneous and dates not so flexible. Mary went above and beyond in working with me on this. I look forward to staying in her slice of paradise again. I highly recommend "Footprints"! Thank you, Mary!
The house is so cozy with refreshing beach colors and decor; fully loaded with electronics and appliances to make one`s stay convenient. The communication with the owner from the inception was exceptional, she made everything so clear and simple to understand, even offering insight into the recreational and dining spots nearby. With the main house and pool in walking distance there`s always something to keep everyone occupied. Highly recommended vacation cottage for a couple or the entire family!! Looking forward to visiting again!!
