About the neighbourhood
The home sits secluded by tropical foliage on a large corner lot with no immediate neighbors. It's less than a 3 minute bike ride (we timed it!) to the Gulf of Mexico beach. There is also a public boat ramp just around the corner (but fishing is as close as the large canal across the street).

Restaurants and shops are all within minutes by bike, car or the free island trolley. One week minimum rental.
