About the neighborhood
This is a 7 acre island with a duplex on it. . 2 story duplex, upper home is nicer and slightly more money. This listing is showing pricing and info on the lower island home. Be aware when you look at us you are looking at a property with over 200 hours a month put into it. Not 10 hours that is put into a normal rental. We are a cross over between a resort and a private home. Besides the fact that you only share the property with me and one other group or just me if you take both homes as 80% of my bookings do. We offer 45' salt water solar heated pool, with 2 large LED lit waterfalls, 8' spa at pool , 45' tiki with wet bar and wireless music system, incredible fire ring with cooker grill and seating for 18, 14 kayaks and 2 canoes. If a family of 8 use the kayaks just 2 da... more
