Lovely waterfront home has uninterrupted views of marshlands. Swimmers will enjoy jumping off the dock into the swift current of the creek. Children can spend countless hours crabbing from the dock directly behind the house. Birders will enjoy frequent sightings of blue heron and white egrets. Or, launch our kayak directly off the dock and explore miles of waterways.
The property has two large docks with a swim ladder; the covered patio offers complete shade and respite from the sun; a rooftop deck offers spectacular views. The house is crisply decorated and has central air conditioning. After a long day at the beach, rinse-off in the enclosed, hot-water, outdoor shower to refresh before dinner. Enjoy a family BBQ (gas grill provided) and outdoor dining in the lovely backyard with incredible views. Large screen TV, cable, DVD/blu-ray player, high-speed Internet. Two kayaks (1 single, 1 double) will be available for use, as long as renters continue to treat them well and not lose the paddles :)
What to bring? Everything fun to take advantage of the waterfront location, e.g. kayaks, fishing rods, crab traps, water floats, umbrellas, beach chairs. For land-lovers, bring your bikes for biking up and down 7-Mile island.
