Second row from the Gulf, great views and breezes with no beachcombers at your front door
Looking to the south from the balcony; the pool and undeveloped neighbors' property
Looking past the house from the parking area, the pool and shaded picnic table
Coming in from the pool-side door, the 'sala', or iving room
Large jalousie windows let you enjoy the Gulf breezes
The desk in the 'sala' gives you a place to have your laptop or to work some jigsaw puzzles
Called the 'antecomedor', this is the sitting area adjacent to the dining room
Looking back through the arch; comforably furnished with Mexican decor, tapestries and tiles
Looking toward the kitchen, the dining room table seats 6, plus there are 4 sturdy wooden TV trays
Fully equipped kitchen with service for twelve (electric juicer, coffeemaker, etc.)
From the kitchen looking through the 'antecomedor', the 'sala' is through the arches
From the dining room table looking toward the front door
Enjoy a meal on the porch, or take this table (seats six) inside for extra seating.
A view of the Gulf from the porch
Back to the kitchen where you have full-sized appliances
The stairway up to the second floor bedrooms and balcony
The upstairs hall; the balcony and two bedrooms open up off of this hall
The east bedroom has a view of the Gulf
or a view to the east and overlooking the pool
Each bedroom has a queen size bed, and plenty of closet space
The southern bedroom overlooks the back garden, casita, and pool area
The master (northern) bedroom has a private entrance to the balcony, a view of the Gulf, and LCD TV
Upstairs, the 'Jack & Jill' bathroom allows direct access from each of the three bedrooms
In the tropics, it's great to be able to be outdoors; the balcony offers a great view of the beach
Pool-side picnic table and comfortable lounge chairs (also lightweight chairs to take to the beach)
At the rear of the property is a screened-in 'casita', a charcoal grill, and a wash tub for clothes
The casita offers an open-air entertainment area with a ratan bar, refrigerator and sink
Casa Brillante, on the Gulf of Mexico; freshly painted inside & out, very well maintained
Flamingos, great herons, pelicans and frigates are some of a wide variety of birds seen in the area
It's only a l5-minute drive to this area of old salt ponds; high salt content turns the water red
Further from the coast, the 'flamboyan' trees bloom from late spring into early summer
Back at the beach house, a rainbow over the pool

Enjoy great views and cooling breezes of the Gulf with all the comforts of home. From either the front porch or the second floor balcony you can see the Gulf, while the second row location means you don't have beach combers in your front yard. The property is enclosed with an attractive stone wall. There's easy parking for 3 cars, and space for up to 6. There's a shaded picnic table at pool-side, and a charcoal grill - perfect for entertaining. The beach house itself is completely furnished, with fans in every room and jalousie windows so you can enjoy the fresh air of the tropics. The rooms are large, light, and airy. There's a fully equipped kitchen with service for 12 (bring the extra table in from the portch, if you want), TV's upstairs & down, DVD and boom box. Upstairs, each of the three bedrooms has a...
