Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: An island resident for over 25 years and now retired to the South West Florida coast. We arrived when the island was only 50 folks and the island was just being discovered. No golf courses and no paved roads - November 1984. After years of operating the only cabinet/woodworking shop on the island the times of loading into the boat to go to the mainland grew old. Now days the boat ride is to venture into the blue waters of the Florida Gulf coast into the fertile fishing grounds and enjoy the white sand beaches along with the warmth of the sun. PLEASE NOTE: This rental property will be FOR SALE as of 2-11-2016. In the past 9 Months it has brought in over $25,000. 2 structures, one long term @ $650 per month and one short term VRBO vacation rental. Excellent Investment at $275K. Inquire to owner for details.

Why the Owner Chose Bluffton, SC, USA:
Opportunity knocked as sailing by on the Nimble coming back from St. Simon to Hilton Head. Walking for hours it put be back to the past roads of northern Vermont where I came from. Never leaving and quitting my job on the mainland I was a transplant. The Sign over at the Freeport Marina ( Cooper River Landing was my exchange for a couple months dockage to get settled in. PLEASE NOTE: This rental property will be FOR SALE as of 2-11-2016. In the past 9 Months it has brought in over $25,000. 2 structures, one long term @ $650 per month and one short term VRBO vacation rental. Excellent Investment at $275K.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
