The east side deck has a gas grill and entertainment area. Relax and watch sunsets from the large screened porch on the Bay side.

Some quests can drive to the The Beach Club for a fantastic meal or a 'Spa' treatment while others play golf at two local golf courses within 5 miles both east and west--The Peninsula Golf and Racque Club or Kiva Dunes Golf Course.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: I am a retired public school teacher who taught school in Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama.

                      Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                      We moved to the Gulf coast over ten years ago and lived in the property full time until recently when we purchased a second home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      This property is truly 'one of a kind.' There are not many of these old 'fish camp' cottages still around and very few in this area. For insurance and refund policies are same as those at Meyer Real Estate.
