Beautiful sunny home, great for dogs, not so good for toddlers
This home is nicely laid out with windows and beautiful views all around. Lovely blue water and lots of sun. I loved the privacy of it being tucked into a corner on a court. The enclosed deck & yard are wonderful for keeping your dog happy. The kitchen had lots of supplies although I never did find the crock pot that was listed in the description. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfy & the shower was gorgeous. Didn't try the bath but it looked nice with jets & a hand held shower head.
As far as the negative, the tv is housed inside a cabinet with doors that do not open to the side; you can only see the tv if you sit directly in front of it as the doors function like blinders on a horse. The only source of heat is the gas fireplace & although it does a great job, you cannot turn it off according to the signs posted or the pilot light will go out. With a 15 month old we were very nervous about her touching the outside of the fireplace and getting burned. Between the fireplace, the slippery bamboo flooring, & the glass coffee table, we did not have a relaxing vacation at all - we spent it chasing after our toddler trying to prevent her from hurting herself. She cut her lip & chin on the coffee table, hit her head on the dining table because it was just high enough so it looked like she could walk under it but it was level with her head, & slipped falling face first on the hardwood floor several times. This is no fault of the owners' - it is a beautiful home, I just wanted to give a heads up to other parents. Outside the hot tub is recessed down a bunch of stairs with concrete at the bottom - also very scary for us.
The general location of the home was nice, you can walk across the street to the chapel or down to the playground or shell beach. The path to the beach is actually right behind the house if you venture through the trees there. We look forward to coming back when baby is older & less accident prone! ;)
