Enjoy a tropical cookout from the covered porch overlooking the water with a built-in, stainless-steel, gas grill and wet bar. Feel the tropical breezes as you enjoy fishing from the back yard or as you view the often seen manatees and other marine life.
This house was perfect for our family of four including two teen age boys. The boys enjoyed the kayaks that were available for our use. They were able to see huge fish, small sharks and manatee. At the marina they were able to catch jelly fish and sea horses in their nets. We enjoyed daytrips to Key West and the Everglades for an airboat ride.
The house was clean and well decorated and the kitchen was stocked well for cooking.
We enjoyed all the outdoor living spaces. The lower level included great areas to relax and a large screen TV to enjoy in the evenings.
The house is near grocery stores, movies, and resturants, but in a quiet neighborhood.
