We love the fact that our house is located on a canal and only a short walk to the beach ( 2 blocks) . Being on the the canal is great for more reasons than one- the main being that we can dock our boat right at the house . The Intra Coastal Waterway is only a 7 minute boat ride from the house. Sometimes we take the boat south to Myrtle Beach , S.C.- about 45 minutes- or north to Southport N. C. ( an historical fishing village with some unique shops - about 60 minutes . Lots of great seafood restaurants along the way - in both directions !
Through the years, we have found that the canal is our favorite place to swim and float on the rafts .
The beach is only a short walk away - the public access to the beach is 2 blocks from the house. Very wide beach, beautiful sand. We love to go to the beach in the late afternoon and watch the sunset.
The one word we hear most often about the house is 'comfortable' . Surrounded by palm trees , the cottage offers 4 bedrooms- 3 on the main level and 1 king bedroom in an enclosed lofted area - with a small balcony - perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon drink. The main living area has a 27' TV and 2 very comfortable sofas- great for the entire family to watch a movie. The dining table sits 10 and there is a smaller round table perfect for games and puzzles.
Each bedroom is unique in its own way: The 1st bedroom has a king bed / private bath. The 2nd bedroom has 2 queens beds with an adjoining bathroom that connects to the 3rd bedroom - with 2 twin beds. The 4th bedroom is upstairs in a lofted area (doors for privacy) with a king bed , private bath and balcony.
The main living area leads to a large deck that overlooks the canal. Another great place to sit , relax , enjoy the view !
