Secluded in a private lush tropical garden with outdoor deck patio, you can also 'Get Away from It All'. 'Sunny Side Up' is a short stroll from casual waterside dining at Mar Vista Restaurant and Pub where every afternoon you can watch the dolphins feed. Just minutes away is St. Armands Circle for loads of shopping and dining fun. Have I mentioned gorgeous Whitney Beach is just a short walk away? It is not uncommon to view dolphin and manatee if you watch carefully.
