About the Property

Studio Apartment W/Pool, Spa & Tiki! Dock Space for Your Boat on clean canal!

This is a studio apartment underneath our home. The house is on pilings, we live upstairs and rent the apartment, which is at ground level with it's own private entrance. The apartment is basically like a hotel room, beautifully decorated in Tommy Bahama furnishings. It has a new, queen size bed plus a daybed that turns into a king-size bed. The room can comfortably sleep 2 adults & 2 children. There is not a kitchen inside the apartment, but there is a mini-refrigerator, microwave & keurig coffee maker.

There is a full-size refrigerator & charcoal BBQ grill on the back porch for guest use. There is also a sink, fish cleaning station with hose and shower dockside which overlooks a clear swimming canal with direct ocean and easy bay access.

Bring your boat (up to approx. 20 feet) for world-class fishing, diving & snorkeling! Great restaurants & shopping nearby! Canal has tons of little tropical fish, lobster and occasionally a manatee or two! Property has tons of tropical foliage & about 25 coconut palm trees. Brand new free-form pool with heater & chiller along with a spa and tiki hut. Landscaping is currently under way and will be completed soon!

My husband and I live upstairs with our 2 daughters (ages 12 & 14) and our small pocket beagle dog (10 pounds). We keep a busy family schedule, so you may not see too much of us especially through weekdays since we will be working, going to school & busy with after-school activities. But on the weekends and possibly some evenings, we anticipate having friends and family over for pool parties and backyard BBQs. And of course our apartment guests are welcome to join in the fun!
