Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I was born in Florida and much of my family still resides there. However, I grew up in Rhode Island on the coastal beaches and in the fishing ports. There, I paid for college by working on my families Off-shore lobster vessel. I ended up going to college at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. Currently, I reside and work in Connecticut.

Why the Owner Chose Merritt Island:
My family and I have strong ties to Florida. I could not have found a better home away from home. Although, I recently purchased this home my family helped me prepare it to accommodate you and your family. Most guests comment on the close proximity to all major attractions like the beach, shopping centers, restaurants, and water sporting activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has a great view from the living room through the sunroom of the water. It is something to go outside to the screened in patio and hear the fish jump up and down the creek before you go to sleep. On the other hand, it is even better waking up in the morning to the water. The waterway in the backyard is Sykes Creek and it is frequented by manatees swimming up and down the creek. Sometimes if you are lucky the porpoise dolphins may make their way up the creek to say hi. Please take the opportunity when you wake up to enjoy your breakfast or a cup of coffee while sitting on either patio.
