Snead Island is surrounded by the Manatee River & Tampa Bay & connected to the city of Palmetto by a small bridge. Fish for sea bass, snapper, snook & grouper in the river as well as in the Tampa Bay & Gulf of Mexico.

This adorable Snead Island cottage is nestled on 2 beautiful acres of majestic oaks, orange trees & coconut palms at the opening of the Tampa Bay. The front yard has beautiful southern Oak trees. Newly furnished with very clean & comfortable bedrooms, living room, dining room, newly remodeled full kitchen with granite counters, attached laundry room & a screened, enclosed veranda. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and back entrance is wheelchair accessible. Continue down the shell drive 250 ft from your back door onto a 100 ft dock to lounge, watch for dolphins and enjoy the sun setting on the Manatee River. A 35 foot boat slip is also available for a small additional fee, water & elec provided. Just to the right of the dock, is a small private Tiki and white sand beach, for swimming, kayaking or just relaxing in the lounge chairs, under a beautiful mangrove tree.

The outside world of shopping, grocery stores, malls & waterfront restaurants are all within a 15 minute drive.

Beautiful 365 acre Emerson Point Preserve Beach Park is withing walking or bike riding distance on the island. There are bike trails, nature & birding trails, a canoe & kayak launch, white sandy beaches for swimming, fishing, picnic tables, barbecues, restrooms and a tower climb for an incredible view of the sunshine skyway bridge and gulf of Mexico. Pets on leashes are welcome in the park and on the beach for swimming. A great place to unwind and feel like you've stepped back in time.

Great getaway
We wanted something near the water but not the beach for a holiday weekend getaway. This place delivered. The preserve was beautiful and fun to explore with kids and the dog. Our hosts were delightful and helpful.

Great Stay!
We needed a location near our new home and school while construction continued for nearly two months. The property also needed to allow cats. This cottage met those requirements and way more. We fished from the dock, gathered under the tiki hut, paddled in the water and had wonderful hosts to top it off!

Family Vacation
We enjoyed our week at this cottage. The home was comfortable. The property was really nice. The dock was a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We visited Emerson Point, Fort Desoto, Tampa, Brohard Paw Park Beach in Venice (a dog beach on the gulf) and the Skyway Fishing Pier. The guys enjoyed two Tampa Bay Rays games.

Things missing
When we stayed there last year, we bought some dish cloths and left them there. This year we again we had to buy them but decided to take them with us since it seems they're not supplied. We also had to buy dish washing liquid, as well as toilet paper. Although we had our short haired dog with us, we swept up a large amount of longer hair, and sand from LR and kitchen floors. The cottage was clean looking, but not all that clean. We had to look for towels and wash clothes. Found them in the dryer. Last, we set our dog food on the kitchen counter and found it the next morning with hundreds of ants in and on the bag. Needless to say, we had to toss it all in the trash. Our last visit.
