Pool heat is an additional $150/wk.
Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Nothing can be done about this issue. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control, malfunctions or loss of use of equipment or amenities.
This property rents Saturday to Saturday. This property is NOT pet friendly and non-smoking.

"Great location and fantastic home!" Airbnb guest August, 2021 "Great house in an excellent location! will most certainly revisit" Airbnb guest August, 2021 "My family spent a week here over the 4th of July. The pool is just awesome. Perfect for family. There is a wonderful little beach across the street as well. Very few criticisms of this house. Well stocked kitchen and nice furniture. The property mgt company was easy to work with. Would absolutely stay here again." Date of arrival - June 29, 2019 "Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. We will be back!" June 22, 2019 "I vacationed at the Oleander House in late spring with my wife, in-laws and an aunt. There is a first floor bedroom with full bath nearby which we stayed in creating nice separation between all of us. The new pool with landscaping in the back made for a very relaxing and private place to spend lazy days. There is a park across the street where the calm bay water was warm and a nice place to swim. Beach access to the north point of Anna Maria is just up the road and the Gulf to the west was about a 10 minute walk. There are two piers and several places to eat within short walking distance. I would recommend the Oleander house and hope to visit again someday." "We recently stayed at the Oleander house during our Spring Break. We could not have been more pleased with this rental. The house was beautiful and the location was perfect. With 5 kids in tow, I could not have been more pleased with the abundance of beach chairs, toys, games and towels. Was also thrilled to find the house stocked with daily items I thought I'd have to provide as I've done in the past with other rentals. A close walk to many beautiful locations ~ morning sunrises, adorable coffee house, nature abounds, everywhere we looked. Only the lack of a hot tub would have given this home 5 stars." "Our family rented a lovely house from Duncan this summer and we had a wonderful experience. The house was in a very nice location with a great pool, the beach right across the street and very comfortably furnished. It was exactly as it appeared on the pictures. We had a couple of issues with power supply and internet connection in the house, but the Duncan team was always helpful to respond to our requests." Natalie - guest google review
