About the owner: Jim and I grew up in New York, travelled and lived all over the world, and still think we have found Paradise on this island! Our 3 grown kids AND FIVE GRANDKIDS are starting the next generation of islanders too...as we convene here for all family gatherings, as they consider the island their piece of heaven too...
We hope you will enjoy our special place as much as we do.
Anne and Jim
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We have been coming to the island for 25 years and Forest Beach has retained most of its beach house character...we love the private, uncrowded beach and houses instead of condos here.
We are in all the hustle and bustle of Coligny in less than 8 minute stroll so we are the perfect blend of peace and quiet and convenience.
The Unique Benefits at this House: No density of condos
Beautiful, peaceful sunrises
Walk or bike to anywhere
Privacy of fully fenced in yard
