Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a real estate agent in New Orleans and visit as often as I can with my girlfriend and pet...very relaxing and an easy get away from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans and real estate.

Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
close (walking distance) to everything like restaurants, shops, bars, grocery stores, and, most important, the beach is across the street !!! It is only 3 hours from our home in New Orleans which is just too convenient.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
relaxing on the wrap-a-round balcony with a cup of coffee or glass of wine or bar-b-que below catching the sunset with the nice consistent breeze from the gulf.
