Both stairs and a walking ramp bring you to the porch, upper decks and living areas. A large screened patio on the ground level with comfortable seating... a great place to relax, have meals, play games and visit. A park-style grill is strategically placed nearby for easy accessibility.

The bayside decking is a ideal spot to sunbath, relax and watch the waves gently lap at the shore. If you like to fish, you will love the private 150 foot dock with rails, fresh water, lights, power and a built-in fish cleaning station. Redfish, speckled sea trout, flounder, catfish and much more await... the fish are always biting at the end of the dock. Or, bring your boat or kayak and explore the entire bay. Use the enclosed outdoor shower to clean up at the end of your day of play.

Why Rebecca and John chose East End

Having spent a lot of time travelling, Rebecca and John sought out a property that connected them to nature, in a peaceful yet invigorating setting. They looked at a lot of properties along the forgotten coast, as well as homes in Belize, Costa Rica and other parts of the world. The moment they found this house for sale, it was clearly the right fit of style, nature and peace. Red Fish, Blue Fish is the perfect getaway for the winter for the owners, who are based in Wisconsin. The rest of the year, it is available for guests to enjoy.

What makes this House unique

On the bay with a private beach and dock. Lots of decking and beautiful out door spaces. Stylish and well-appointed interior. Ideal for fishing, biking and kayaking. Nicely landscaped with palms lining the property for privacy. We love dogs and encourage guests to bring theirs. We fenced the 1 acre yard so dogs can run and play.
