If you are a golfer, tennis enthusiast, swimmer, club joiner, beach bum, or just enjoy being around folks enjoying their "Golden Years," then hits is the place for you. Four courses with fitness facilities and dining. Inter Coastal Waterway marina and private beach.

Fun eatery with views of the marina. Fine service from friend wait staff. Pleasant outside patio with umbrellas that is in high demand. The Angus burgers are best experienced "loaded!"

A house rental shouldn't cause you a problem. I noted on the St. James real estate site that there is a house rental. Your problem will be IF you try to rent a condo like we did with a lot of absentee landlords.
