From your deck and heated pool, watch the boats go by and take in the nice ocean breeze. Dolphins and manatees are often seen. The neighborhood is laid back and very safe, with a nice mellow vibe. Close to amenities and sunsets over the gulf.
Special Note: Thankfully, our properties and our area in general made it through hurricane Irma with very minimal damage. No storm surge, and no disruption to the availability of our properties.
The home is newly remodeled with comfortable furniture and fully appointed with plenty of towels, linens, fully stocked kitchen, grill, and more. The back deck and heated pool overlook the water and provide a very nice space to enjoy the spectacular views and mild Florida coastal climate. Boat traffic in the canal varies throughout the day, with periods of little more activity than the wildlife, and other times when the shrimp and crab boats are heading out for a night of fishing. Wildlife includes dolphins, manatees, bald eagles and many other beautiful and rarely seen birds. Beautiful sailboats and pleasure boats cruise by from time to time. Everyone you meet is happy to be there. It's a very pleasant experience.
