Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Living aboard and skippering a charter catamaran in Dominica and the rest of the Caribbean while you live in my house of 18 years, where you can buy my book: Captain Mark's Way. We also have a guest house in Dominica, Peanut Farm Bungalow, look us up on HomeAway or Facebook.

Why the Owner Chose Boynton Beach, FL, USA:
i designed and built backyards/pools prior to putting the house on the rental market, and this was my first creation. See for others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Property manager lives in neighborhood so all your needs are fulfilled right away. Best pool, with bar stools, in town. Lots of privacy, vibrant colors, art and all you need to stay, we provide paper towels, dish soap, toilet paper, etc. so you dont have to run out for basic stuff. You get what you pay for, and you get a lot here at Casa de la Capitan! Peace.
