This home is called the Sea Lion Cottage offering the cozy charm of a beach cottage in a stylishly updated mid-century canal-side home . From the moment you drive down the street you will begin to relax. This quiet street is unique because it has homes on one side of the street and a mangrove preserve on the other side providing privacy. A canal out back complete with sailboat depth water and a dock to sit and watch the fish jump = perfect vacation! Add in a short walk to the beach (5-7 minutes) to watch the beautiful sunsets and a clear blue swimming pool covered with a screened lanai and you won't want to leave. A newly built outdoor shower and built-in charcoal grill complete this beach home. Linens and all utensils and appliances are provided. You will feel like you are home from the minute you open the front door.
The home opens onto the living room with a fireplace and flat screen tv. Beyond that you can open the sliding doors to the world outside to let in the warm breezes or hear your family splashing and giggling in the pool. The kitchen and dining area are to the right.
