                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Our family is retired military. We fell in love with the white sand beaches and quality of life in this area and decided to purchase a family vacation home. We enjoy very much sharing our home with other families.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  We really liked this spot for it's convenience to so many fun activities along with being so close to the beach. Having access to the adjacent resort gives so many more features to everyone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The privacy of your own home while still being able to indulge yourself with the resort next door. No streets to cross to get to the beach. It's the perfect beach vacation home.
