Desert Rose is the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living. Inside is large and open with cathedral ceilings in the living area, leading into the long breakfast bar, kitchen, dining and cocktail areas with double French doors opening onto a large screened deck. The laundry/utility room is right off the kitchen and has a large laundry sink (ideal for washing small very sandy dogs).
Throughout the house, french doors open onto the deck/balcony from each bedroom including the third story master bedroom with a sunset view over the gulf of Mexico. Large cool Mexican tiles soothe your feet as your mind unwinds in a southwestern motif with a Key West soul.
Outside, large screened decks provide privacy and natural ventilation in the front and rear of the main floor. Relax in the late afternoon sun in the hammock on the front deck then prepare a meal on the Webber gas grill and dine on the back deck overlooking the heated turquoise swimming pool under the canopy of the pool cage. Massage those tired muscles with the Jacuzzi jets blazing from the built-in pool bench. Keep up with your favorite shows on the flat panel High Def. TV in the living room or any of the other TVs in the bedrooms, kitchen or poolside. Wi-Fi is available throughout. Beach chairs and bicycles are at your disposal. Both the back bay and your private beach access are but a block and 1/2 away. So too is 'Publix' our island's main grocery. Beside it, Snookbright , a full service marina, offers a variety of watercraft for rent, fishing charters and a fine dining restaurant overlooking Estero Bay.

About the owner: Here I am doing what I do best - - - being easy. A recycled bar and grill owner from Key West, I am, sadly, a widower now and another one of them beach musicians who can't quit his day job. A whole other lifetime or two ago I worked in D.C. for the U.S. Labor Dept. and prior to that for the state of Vermont.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mid Island: Location, location, location. Surrounded by palm trees and tropical vegetation, Desert Rose provides the serenity of a Caribbean island paradise yet close to all the beach action water sports, shopping, shelling and dining. If that's not enough, cross the bridge to the mainland for a large selection of fine golf courses, casino gambling, greyhound racetrack, professional baseball, botanical parks, air-boat rides in the Everglades and much, much more.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Long sun filled days and quiet starry nights.
