Ono Island house description

Very relaxing waterfront home located on the south side - Gulf side of Ono Island. I offer a private dock minutes to the Gulf of Mexico, so you can dock/pier your boat or personal watercraft. The beaches are very beautiful sugar white. Fishing and crabbing are excellent from the dock and you may see a dolphin swim by.

What does actor Tom Selleck and music superstars Jimmy Buffet, Reba McIntyre and William Lee Golden of the Oakridge Boys have in common? They were all once residents of one of the most exclusive island resorts on the Gulf of Mexico...Ono Island. This is your opportunity to enjoy a piece of paradise on one of the few gated and guarded islands on the gulf coast.

My Home is located on the south side of the island on Ole River minutes away from the white sugar sands of Orange Beach, Alabama on the Gulf Mexico. Whether you want to rent for the week for a family reunion, or a business retreat with your top client, Fisher’s Folly is truly an island paradise, with it's spacious living on 2 levels, perfect for total entertainment, including a 100 foot pier which can accommodate boats with up to 4 foot drafts and plenty of great fishing or crabbing off the side of the pier, plus your are only 5 minutes away from some of the worlds best deep sea fishing. If golfing is your thing we have over 20 first class golf resorts a short drive.

It was recently gutted/remodeled with natural cherry cabinets, bamboo floors, granite countertops, stainless appliances, convection oven, leather furniture, geothermal HVAC, 1 king/2 queen Tempur-pedic & 2 bunk beds, large wrap around deck and pier for drafts up to 4 feet.
