Lovely waterfront home has uninterrupted views of marshlands. Swimmers will enjoy jumping off the dock into the swift current of the creek. Children can spend countless hours crabbing from the dock directly behind the house. Birders will enjoy frequent sightings of blue heron and white egrets. Or, launch your kayak directly off the dock and explore miles of waterways.
The property has two large docks with a swim ladder; the covered patio offers complete shade and respite from the sun; a rooftop deck offers spectacular views. The house is crisply decorated and has central air conditioning. After a long day at the beach, rinse-off in the enclosed, hot-water, outdoor shower to refresh before dinner. Enjoy a family BBQ (gas grill provided) and outdoor dining in the lovely backyard with incredible views. Large screen TV, cable, DVD/blu-ray player, high-speed Internet. Two kayaks (1 single, 1 double) will be available for use, as long as renters continue to treat them well and not lose the paddles :) Four beach passes included.

Why Suzanne chose Stone Harbor
My husband and I have been vacationing in Stone Harbor for over 20 years. Stone Harbor is a fantastic destination that offers something for everyone in the family. We enjoy motor-boating, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and waverunning - all of which we can do right from the dock on our property. My daughter absolutely loves the beach. And, I enjoy window shopping in downtown Stone Harbor.
What makes this house unique
Our property is on a quiet cul-de-sac road overlooking an expansive marshland in Stone Harbor Manor. I can 'almost' guarantee that we have the BEST view of any bayfront property in Stone Harbor. Most other Stone Harbor bayfront homes have views of other properties across the bay. I personally prefer to sip my pina coladas watching the sailboats in the distance and blue herons walking along the waterline. Our home has so much to offer including swimming, fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. We are located across from one of the largest Laughing Gull rookeries in the country, and we have Diamondback Turtles nesting directly in our yard! Town is a 10 minute walk and the beach is a 15 minute walk from the house.
