Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have been owners on Shell Point Road since 1995. We love the ambiance and relaxation of an old Florida setting with all the amenities of a resort and large city near by. My son who is a fishing charter captain has fished this area since childhood. He is available for fishing tips as well as charters. If you love the bay and Florida, you will love this place. It is like a movie set of old time Florida

Why the Owner Chose Ruskin:
Comfortable and relaxing
