Casa Blanca on Cherry Island Magnificent Estate
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

What a GEM...everything as promised...Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the boat house (all was as promised) adjacent to the mansion. A few minutes boat ride from Alex Bay, with mainland parking and dock even closer. Cherry Island, (in the midst of famed "Millionaire's Row") has a total of 5 or 6 houses.....Casa Blanca is all you need as you get to enjoy most of the estate... including a gazebo where you are guarded by the gargoyles overlooking the the ships pass by. Phil & Nancy are gracious, helpful hosts and while away one eve, offered their "big house" porch so we could enjoy the sunset....unforgettable! Boathouse has dock, paddle boards, kayaks, a canoe, floating tubes, fishing rods, plus a gas grill for your use...also enjoyed P&N's yacht for sunning, diving and socializing. View from dock = overlooking 3 or 4 more mansions on the mainland. Advice: JUST DO IT! ......would definitely recommend to friends.....we will be back.
