Property description

This corner, second floor apartment boasts a beautiful view of the 2+mile pink sand beach on the Atlantic side of Windermere Island as well as wonderful light from 3 sides. The apartment has 2 full en-suite rooms, both with queen beds and one with an extra couch/day bed for a 4th or 5th person. The apartment units are steps from the beach and its own tennis courts. Renters are also able to use the Club at Windermere, by arrangement, which offers more tennis courts and a full pool. Dining and Bar services are available during the season. The decor of the apartment is simple, clean and fresh. There is a wonderful hammock for reading on the deck. This is a place to unplug and recharge the batteries. Intentionally, it is short on electronics and games, but does have a DVD player (and a small library of DVDs) as well as a CD player. This is perfect family or couple renewal space. The apartment has local phone service and high speed internet and wifi.

About the owner: We are an American family with two young children that love this island.

This property has been in our family for more than 35 years, but we completely refurbished it in 2000 after assuming management from the family.
