Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I was raised here and I am all about the water and natural beauty of this area. I like my life to be simple and uncluttered. I tried the corporate world but I was drawn right back home. I purchased this cottage becuase it represents the lifestyle, simple. Not many places left that you will get this feeling.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This cottage is one of the original houses on the island. It has all the original cottage charm of the beach with modern touches including a completely remodeled and gorgeous kitchen. I picked this property because when I was growing up my good friends lived in this neighboorhood so when I was looking for a second home I gravitated here. This neighborhood seems to be off the radar and away from loud tourist. No late night noise, no traffic, just gulf breezes and the songs of the birds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage sits on its own lot, so you have your own private home. Most smaller places share common areas or are off shoots of the owners house. This cottage has it own yard and convenient outdoor hot and cold shower in the backyard. The deck has a pleasant mix of shaded tree coverage and sun. The little shed converts to a private bar so you can entertain guest. Nothing better than a cold beer in your own outdoor bar after a day at the beach. Trolley picks you up (FREE) to take you everywhere on the Island or enjoy a leisurely bike. I even had a tenant write a novel while living here, it is that quiet.
