Nettles Island is a resort community encompassing a 24-hour security gated neighborhood development in the saltwater Indian River Lagoon between the Ft. Pierce inlet to the north and the St. Lucie inlet to the south. The private and unspoiled beach and Beach Club is a short walk away and includes a large heated pool, restrooms, showers and a snack bar. Walking, bike riding and golf carts are the most common forms of transportation in the community.
Nettles offers many family activities to partake in during your stay including, miniature golf, tennis, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, bocce ball, kiddy wading pool, sand box, billiards, foosball, ping pong, X-box, arcade games, computers with internet and so much more to entertain the kids. Best part, it's all free!
The is also 2 large heated pools with 2 hot tubs, a restaurant open for breakfast and lunch, and a workout room. Wireless internet is available through Nettles Island for a fee.
You can walk or jog for miles and miles along the gently sloping wide beach seeing very few people or bring a flashlight to the beach at night in the summer months and often observe the giant sea turtles come ashore to dig a nest in the sand and lay their eggs.
The Neighborhood: In the commercial center you will find a marina, restaurant and best of all, The Village Grocer. There you will find groceries, baked goods, sandwiches, beer, wine, bait, rent fishing gear, rent movies, buy souvenirs or just have a nice chat with the locals.
The House: Bright island colors and comfortable decor will welcome you as you enter the cottage. Windows in the family room provides a serene view of the waterway on the quiet west wall of Nettles Island. It is not uncommon to see dolphins, many varieties of birds, an occasional manatee and fish jumping in the water.
The kitchen has all the major appliances and is fully stocked for cooking. The adjoining family room has a 30' flat screen TV with a DVD player and a surround sound system. A stereo and CD player are also available.
The larger bedroom includes a comfortable queen bed and a small bathroom with a nice deep tub and shower. The second bedroom features a daybed with a trundle bed beneath. All bedrooms have closets and dressers. All rooms have ceiling fans and central A/C and heat.
The third bed is a pull-out couch.
Upon check in, the house will be stocked with a limited amount of necessities: toilet paper, tissues, and soaps for the bathrooms and dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, trash bags and coffee filters in the kitchen. All bed linens, towels (including beach towels) and kitchen towels are provided.
Please be aware that the seawall is very close to the back door. It is recommended that all renters, especially children, be able to swim. Since we are close to the seawall, the cottage is up 4' feet; therefore, upon entering there are 5 steps up to the living area.
The historic section of Jensen Beach is a short drive over the causeway bridge. You will find a quaint downtown area with casual shops and restaurants serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Every Thursday night is a fun street festival with live music and sometimes special exhibits from local artists and shop owners. It is a very family friendly event and well attended by local residents and tourists.
