About the neighbourhood
The home is located 2 blocks from the Seawall/beach. It is located behind the Galvez hotel. It is an easy walk to the beach or even the new Pleasure Pier. The home is on the East end of the island making it convenient to the Strand, the mansions that can be toured, all the public beaches and the port. The neighborhood is a quiet area with weekend homes, full time residents and locals. There are eating places close by and even a small park for the kids to play in.
