What a beautiful home and fabulous spot! I am soooo picky, and my last experience way up the other end of the public side was very muddy! The water on the private side is much clearer! The home was everything you would expect, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The walk to the waterfront is much shorter than the pictures depict, and how pleasantly landscaped. We enjoyed the swimming in warm water during the cool October climate at the beach and off of the dock. We could not get the kids out of the water. The kids (including my husband) were beside themselves over the movie room! Unfortunately the bulb broke our first night but the house and the waterfront were so much fun the wining only lasted an hour or so. We are trying out some other spots on the public side again, but for someone who likes the public side this home is worth private side stays! Thanks so much!
