The living room has leather furniture, including a pullout sofa bed, & a 55' LCD flat-panel TV as well as Blue Ray DVD player.

New bar-height deck furniture rounds out the main floor, as you look directly to the ocean, viewing the shrimp boats, the porpoises jumping, and very few people walking, fishing, or sunbathing on the white sandy beach.
