I was getting the bags out of the car while my wife unlocked the door and went in the house. It was late in the evening after a long day of travel. All I heard was "Oh wow". I knew we picked the right choice for the next week. The house was terrific and very well equipped for our stay. We spent almost a day and a half sitting on the lanai absorbing the view to start our visit. When you get out of bed, you are 10 steps from the water.
