This is in a quiet residential ares, part of a complex with 64 units. It is on the east end of the island. The complex's beach front provides wonderful swimming and fishing but is best known for the shelling. A mile walk down the beach leads to the historic light houses and fishing pier. Bicycles are available for rent on the property to use on the 25 miles of bike paths. There is a very good local taxi service which we use to pick us up at the airport as well as occasional shopping on and off the island. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance of the condo. There is a door from our lanai which opens to the canal where you can moor your boat (with no charge) and/or fish, barbeque or sit and watch the sunset! The complex also has a great swimming pool and clubhouse. The nature preserves and animal refuges are our favourite places to discover. Also, close by are fitness centres, spas, tennis courts, golf clubs, boat rentals/tours. Paradise itself!
