Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I have lived in Jaibalito for 15 years and bought this compound in 2004. The casita was originally used by my two boys but they are off to college and then I had a retired couple rent it for two years.
They moved last month so I am trying to rent it again. Although I am looking for a long term renter, I will rent it for a minimum of 5 days to 1-2 people.
Why the Owner Chose Jaibalito: Just look at it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Lake front, serenity, safety but with all the modern conveniences.
