About the owner: This house is our personal vacation home. We take so much pride in this home and want it to be a retreat when we go on vacation.
Why the Owner Chose East Beach: We looked at many locations on the east coast. This island had a wonderful sense of community. People come back year after year. We wanted a place where our family, especially the children, could build family memories.
This island has the feeling that you stepped back in time but still has all the amenities you could want!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Arbor Cottage is extremely accessible to the beach, but is also private. It is surrounded by trees (in the winter you get hundreds of delicious oranges and grapefruit in the backyard). We have two large indoor living areas and an enormous deck located in the middle. The flow of the home is wonderful for multiple families creating an environment of family, but a feeling of privacy.
