Spend your vacation at a spacious, beautiful, pet friendly home on 200 ft. of tropically landscaped waterfront. Coconut palms, orchids, frangipani surround you. This is not a canal home or a condo. Mangroves and an intimate, private sandy beach on the Manatee River are rare if not impossible to find and make a perfect retreat that your friends, family and water loving dogs will fall in love with. This spacious, beautiful home on the Manatee River has never been offered as a vacation home before.

The house is loaded with interesting antiques, books, art, whimsical accessories- There's something interesting everywhere you look.

Every time we turned around there was a new surprise. A large deck overlooking the river, our own private beautifully landscaped pool and Tiki Bar, a large, spacious and well... more
