Property is a well laid out, approximately 2200 square foot condominium with 300 feet of tiled lanai in prestigious Burnt Store Marina. Top floor condo with south facing marina and Charlotte Harbor views providing spectacular mornings, afternoons and evenings that intimately connect you to marina activity. Plentiful manatees in winter, jumping mullet and rolling juvenile tarpon are a daily sight as boats shuttle in and out of the marina basin.

Burnt Store Marina is a gated community of approximately 1800 homes offering golf, tennis, fishing, kayaking, and boating. There are 3 onsite restaurants; Cass Cay, a wonderful beach-themed restaurant offering a huge, tasty selection of lunch and dinner options (limited breakfast hours). Always a large variety of fresh fish offerings, prepared as you choose. Great sandwiches (Chicken and Brie on Brioche Bun is one of our favorites), burgers and fresh salads (I like the wedge salad with blackened shrimp or salmon on top!). A Tiki Hut waterfront bar is connected to the restaurant, offering outdoor seating for meals or any adult beverages. During the winter season, entertainment is offered every live music, but sometimes Trivia, Karaoke, Bingo etc. A second restaurant/deli/ship's store is available for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also carry-out, beer and wine, ice cream and souveniers. Linkside Cafe, located at the onsite golf course is available for breakfast and lunch. Linkside offers excellent food and alcoholic beverages with a wonderful view of the golf course, ponds and occasionally an alligator!
