Why Fish Bay: It has the privacy of the south shore. Al the surveyor saw the cottage as one of the first choice lots with panoramic views of the Caribbean and perched where the tropical breeze is captured. It is a traditional caribbean cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Convenience to amenities, 2.5 miles to the town, ferry dining and entertainment in Cruz Bay, yet secluded enough as we say, to be clothing optional. :)
