The view. Wow. From the moment we arrived, we were drawn to the view out of the huge picture windows. The bay provided ever-changing scenery. Dolphins, pelicans, jumping fish, sunrises and sunsets...something we miss now that we are gone!
The home's elevator was handy for bringing groceries up from the garage. The pool/hot tub provided many hours of entertainment for our family and visiting guests. We brought our own kayaks/paddle boards and enjoyed the convenience of being right on the beach. Our kids fished and caught a tarpon and a shark as well as some smaller fish. There are many puzzles in the home which we completed. The home does show some wear (paint/carpet) BUT it was CLEAN and we felt more at home with the wear because of that especially since we brought our dog with us. The location is perfect. Just a short walk to Pinocchio's for ice cream and also the lighthouse. You don't have to fight traffic to get on and off the island due to the location of the home. Only thing I would recommend is for you to bring your own coffee pot if you are used to a Keurig or Bunn. (Their pot makes good coffee...it just takes a long time to do so. ) Beds were comfy. There are at least 3 twin size air beds for your use in addition to the 1 King, 3 Qn, and one twin. The mother in law suite was an interesting setup as it had a QN bed in the bedroom but in the bathroom suite area there was also a twin bed. Would recommend this home, wish I could go back SOON!
