I just bought this house from the woman who dreamt it into existence. She was packing her things when she wrote me this letter.........
Of course the weather here seems to be the best ever. The air seems to be the richest ever. The wildlife seems the most abundant ever - tons of fish in the lagoon, 1/2 dozen osprey came by, great white herons are here...it is like they are coming to say goodbye to us and I'm sure to say hello to you. I promise you once you come to this house where the land meets the sea you will become a part of the 'front yard' and very much less part of the 'back yard'. Living right out on this protected peninsula is extreme. Manatee and dolphin will be right at your 'front door' on some days if your watching it happens like this.... you are doing dishes and you walk out to the porch to set out a wet towel and you'll hear a snort, like a whale, but it is not a whale it's a manatee or a dolphin and you will say 'Oh my God' ...its right there!! you run downstairs to be with them.............

About the owner: We have been traveling to the Keys since we were young staying at the a Key Largo camp ground and had a blast. We live in Michigan where the winters are brutal and getting a break from the cold winter was a thrill for us. We were fortunate enough to buy this lovely home on the Ocean, fix it up and have a little piece of Paradise!
