but very comfortable for for 3 couples ie 6 adults maximum. (can sleep an additiional 2 small children as well) If you are all singles then 4 singles works best.

We are supplying the best because we want to rent to the best -- RESPONSIBLE people.... who appreciate quality, a beautiful home, and will take care of it as if it where their own.

Tie up to our 52-foot dock and you have instant access to the ocean or just two blocks away, is the Vaca Cut and in minutes you are in the Gulf of Mexico.

Our fabulous 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom home is first class all the way.

We have 2 (two) large master bedrooms.

FIRST MASTER, the whole top floor of the house, is a very private, 800-square ft, King-size, master bedroom with a five-piece bathroom, a Jacuzzi and bidet.

It also has a home office with wireless internet, photo copier and fax if you feel the need to take your work with you while on vacation. And best thing is that it faces out to the ocean so you wont miss a thing.

Th huge windows facing out onto the ocean, will give you the feeling that you are on a cruise ship.

SECOND MASTER has two queen-size beds dressed in grass skirts, Hawaiian linens and its own private, four-piece bath.

THIRD BEDROOM is a queen bedroom, with hand painted walls with the lyrics of an old Jimmy Buffet song, a Monkey in a Coconut Tree. It also has its own private bath 4 pc bathroom

SO POUR YOURSELF a cold one.
Float in our heated pool, or lounge under the shade of a 40 yr old sea grape tree and watch the boats go by, the pelicans and dolphins at play and the sun go down. If you are truly blessed a manatee may come by to say hello.

The ocean is less than 50 ft from your backdoor and there is nothing to block your view till you reach Cuba, 90 miles directly across.

OUR MILLION DOLLAR home is furnished and outfitted accordingly. Our kitchen has all the tools of the trade. Great dishes and glassware. Separate dining room inside, and dining area pool side with 2 barbecues...one gas and one charcol. Bait freezer on the side of the house, fish table and a great patio.

Our home is SIMPLY OUTSTANDING, we have spared no cost to making sure it is filled with the very best of everything for you to enjoy.

THE MAXIMUM GUESTS ALLOWED IS 6 ADULTS, 3 COUPLES, BUT WE CAN ALSO ACCOMATE 2 CHILDREN UNDER 12. WE ARE LICENSED FOR 8 GUESTS ONLY. YOU CAN SWAP OUT AND ADULT FOR A CHILD BUT NO MORE THAN 8 GUESTS. WE RENT IN BOOKS OF 7 NIGHT STAYS...CHECKING IN AND OUT ON SATURDAYS. YOU CAN RENT MULTIPLE WEEKS BUT WE DO NOT ENTERTAIN MONTHLY RENTERS.....SORRY....

OVER 50% OF MY GUESTS ARE YEARLY REPEATS SO THAT ALONE SAYS HOW GREAT OUR HOME IS.

You will absolutely will not go wrong booking with us. I guarantee you will want to come back again and again.

We are conviently located at mm 52 just 4 miles from the 7 mile bridge. We have lots of resturants, and stores around us to fill all your needs.

                  BEST Fishing and Diving in the area, Everything that swims in the Ocean or the Gulf goes right by our dock, you do not need a boat to catch a fish, just drop a line off of our dock and they will be waiting for you, In addition to this, the Diving is spectacular, The Dolphin research center is not far from our home and you can go swim or play with them if you like.
