Outside: The villa is not overlooked from any side and is surrounded by pine trees & palmettos. Relax in seclusion with a book and drink on comfortable loungers next to your own 12' x 24' screened pool, electrically heated if necessary. The high tech purification system ensures soft, silky water with no chlorine side effects. The pool & deck are in sunshine all day, as is the lawned garden, and the fan cooled lanai is always in shade so there is somewhere to escape the hot sun when required, and to dine in comfort. Enjoy sunbathing, swimming, dining, or just sitting under the stars after dark, free from the nuisance of flying insects. You will be able to take all meals outside, with nighttime lighting from the pool, a standard lamp, or overhead lighting on the lanai, and there is a gas BBQ/grill for the outdoor chef. A professional pool cleaning service takes place once a week.
