Overlooking a canal that leads out to San Carlos Bay, Hanyo Hideaway lets you savor waterfront living. From the backyard, you can watch dolphins and manatees float by and wave to passing boats. The property even has its own boat dock (no docking space available).
If you prefer beachcombing to boating, you’ll still love Hanyo Hideaway: It’s just a few blocks from the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Forget about loading up the car with a day’s worth of gear and battling traffic to get to the beach; you can walk back and forth any time you please! Go for a swim before breakfast; return to race on jet-skis after lunch; come back in early evening to gaze at the dramatic sunset over the sparkling waters.
Half of a duplex, Hanyo Hideaway boasts a recently updated kitchen, complete with granite countertops, new appliances, and a tile floor that will feel wonderfully refreshing underfoot when you return from biking or collecting shells. Although there’s a trove of restaurants nearby, once you see how open and airy the kitchen is, you may find yourself planning to do a lot more cooking. We provide all the cookware, tableware, and prep tools you could need; all you have to supply is the food--happily, there’s a grocery within walking distance! And if you prefer to cook alfresco--especially if you managed to reel in some fresh fish from the dock or the nearby pier--there’s a gas grill on the shared lanai.
The kitchen is part of the open living-dining area. The living room sofa is perfect for stretching out with a book (or for a nap!); the roomy armchairs are ideal for watching a favorite movie on the TV or surfing the web (Hanyo Hideaway has free WiFi). The informal dining table seats 4, or for a quick snack you can pull up to the breakfast bar.
Decorated simply but comfortably, the master bedroom includes a TV and a queen-size bed beneath a ceiling fan whose gentle whisper will lull you to sleep. You’ll love waking up to the sunshine from the 2 windows--it’s a definite improvement to being jarred awake by an alarm clock! The equally appealing 2nd bedroom includes a full-size bed, suitable for a 2nd couple or the kids.
When you arrive, the beds will be perfectly made with fresh sheets, and a stack of laundered towels will be waiting in the bathroom, so if you want to make a shower or a nap your first order of business, you can. You can also pack light, as Hanyo Hideaway has its own washer and dryer. After all, why waste time in a Laundromat when you can be canoeing, hiking, swimming, or sailing?
If driving hither and yon isn’t part of your ideal vacation, you’ll love Hanyo Hideaway’s location. Not only are you just a short walk from the velvety sands of what many consider one of the country’s best beaches, but you’re also less than a mile from Matanzas Pass Preserve, with its walking paths and hiking trails among the mangroves as well as inlets for canoeing and kayaking. Also nearby are a public pool, tennis courts, and a new library.
The island’s Times Square area, with its wealth of restaurants, nightspots, and shops to choose from, is within walking distance as well. Or you can catch the trolley that runs up and down the island every 20 minutes throughout the day.
When you stay at Hanyo Hideaway, everything you want from a Florida vacation--sun, sand, surf--is practically at your doorstep. See for yourself: Reserve your stay today!Get the full listing »
