                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Enjoying a Tropical drink in Paradise. David & Jadee Craig

                          Why the Owner Chose Tankah:
                          It was never our intention to build this house for a vacation rental, however after building it, we decided that it would be nice for others to enjoy it as much as we do.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Because of the close proximity to the reef the snorkeling is INCREDIBLE! It is also a perfect bay to kayak in. The house itself really gives you the feel that you are in the Caribbean, as it maximzes the views & the tropical breezes. All of the glass walls that look out to the beach and ocean really bring the outdoors in, it's just a lovely place to be.
