Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Chef's kitchen , Split Floor Plan, Beautifully Appointed

Ocean's 1180 is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom quality, coastal, private residence on the small and laid back Singer Island - a 2 block walk to the Atlantic Ocean and one of the top beaches in Florida. The island is just across the inlet from Palm Beach Island and a ferry ride to Peanut Island. There are beautiful parks, restaurants, spas, fishing , diving, snorkeling all within a short bike ride.

Our combined living, den and dining area offers a larger space for entertaining. The kitchen is fully stocked, has an electric range, and has an open pass through bar to the back patio.

A split bedroom floor plan makes our space ideal for privacy. The west section of the home has two bedrooms and a zen-like bathroom which opens to the patio. The first room offers two twin beds and desk with 2 closets. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and TV. There is a beautiful newly redone bathroom serving both of these bedrooms. There is a door that can be closed if only one bedroom is in use making it a suite connected to the bathroom.

The east section of the home has the master bedroom with a California King bed, TV, a full bathroom with 2 sinks, a shower and whirlpool tub, as well as a walk in closet. As you enter the home, you will see a very open plan with the living room, dining room, kitchen, and family room all open to each other, and looking out to the screened in patio. Across from kitchen and just inside from the garage is a separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer. There is a 2 car garage with an electric door and a large driveway.

Ocean's 1180 is on approximately a quarter of an acre with an oversized

Avocado tree, Key lime tree, Hibiscus, Banana and other tropical delights. Enjoy the ocean breezes while barbecuing on the deluxe gas grill. Grab a bike and head to the beach or to the sailfish marina for lunch. The PGA Spa - one of my personal favorites is just 15 minutes away by car.

Only 10 minutes away is Publix, a full service grocery store. We are one block East of the Intracoastal Waterway and just six miles north of downtown West Palm Beach and the island of Palm Beach. The Gardens Mall, ten minutes north, offers upscale shopping and entertainment. Ocean's 1180 awaits you!

Turtle Viewing Season is Starting!

March 1 was the official start of the sea turtle nesting season in Palm Beach County, and the experts are predicting another good year ahead. Our county is one of Florida’s most important loggerhead nursery areas in the Western Hemisphere. Every year, thousands of loggerhead, leatherback and green sea turtles come ashore to nest on our beaches resulting in over 2 million hatchlings!

The process starts when the female sea turtle crawls ashore at night to dig a nest, deposit her eggs, cover the nest and return to the water. While on the beach, sea turtles are timid and vulnerable and can be easily frightened away, if disturbed. It takes from one to three hours for the female turtle to lay between 80 to 120 eggs (shaped like a ping pong ball).

The nests are located approximately 18 inches below the surface, and are generally found above the high-tide line on the dry beach. Eggs and nest must remain undisturbed in the warm sand for 47 to 60 days before they hatch.

The majority of the hatching occurs from July through September and hatchlings usually emerge from their nests as a group at night. In a natural situation, they crawl down the beach to the water where they must swim for many hours to reach the open sea.

Unfortunately, thousands of hatchlings die every year in their attempt to reach the water. Instinctively, newly hatched sea turtles follow the natural light reflected on the water by the moon and waves. However, they become disoriented by artificial light from homes, businesses, street lights and cars, and crawl in the wrong direction. Consequently, they die from exhaustion, dehydration, predators and debris.

Here are some simple tips to help protect sea turtles:

Beaches must be free of debris and potential obstacles. Sea turtles have poor vision on land and cannot go backwards. Many times, they return to sea without nesting if an obstacle is encountered.

Do not disturb sea turtles, nests or eggs; it’s against the law.

If you encounter a nesting turtle, keep lights off, remain still and keep your distance.

Turn off coastal lights and keep flashlights and phones off while on the beach at night.

Keep pets away from nesting females, nests and hatchlings.

Do not disturb nest markers. Numerous organizations including the county’s Environmental Resource Department monitors sea turtles.

Operate your boat with caution. Sea turtles are found offshore, nearshore and inshore and have to surface to breath.

Sea turtle facts:

Sea turtles are among the oldest creatures on earth, unchanged for over a million years.

After epic migrations at sea around the world, loggerhead sea turtles return to almost the exact spot where they were born to mate and lay their own eggs. Reportedly, this is based on the coastline’s magnetic signature, which the turtle remembers and uses as an internal compass.

Sand temperature can determine gender. For example, cooler sand tends to produce male hatchlings.

About Julie Logsdon

We found our dream home for retirement. I am a native Floridian and always wanted to live near the beach and to be able to bike to restaurants. When we saw this house, we knew we had to have it. Until we are ready for retirement, we are making it available for people to enjoy as much as we hope to one day!

Julie Logsdon purchased this house in 2016

Why Julie Logsdon chose Riviera Beach

I have family in the area, and I love the island feel and the location to all the things I love to do - beach, biking, parks, fishing, shopping and the spa!

What makes this house unique

5 minute walk to the beach, several great parks within 30 minutes, bike to restaurants, great shopping and lots of festivals , activities nearby. Singer Island is a relaxed Florida lifestyle - just across the inlet from the famous Palm Beach Island.

Beautiful, Comfortable, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough good things about this absolutely beautiful home. It has all been newly redone, and redone magnificently! The kitchen, bathrooms, lighting, and furnishings are all just wonderful--everything is brand new and even better than it looks in the photos. The beds and furniture are so comfortable. The bedding, towels, kitchen dishes, and cookware are all first-rate and plentiful. The home has lovely, large grounds and landscaping, and a large screened in porch from which to enjoy the view. This perfect home is located in a beautiful, friendly neighborhood and is directly across from a very nice public beach. The owner is great to deal with too.

Overall, we (a couple) and our occasional guests had a terrific time and lovely month there. I absolutely LOVED the house and would definitely want to stay there again!

The Blue Heron Bridge, minutes from Ocean's 11 front door, is called “Florida’s exotic critter capital." It was named the 2013 top dive site in the world by PADI's diving magazine.

Scuba diving at the world renowned Blue Heron Bridge, also known as Phil Foster Park, is something every diver who visits West Palm Beach, Florida should experience. The Blue Heron Bridge was chosen in 2013 as the best dive site in the world by PADI’s Sport Diver magazine for good reasons… Its diversity of marine life and its easy accessibility are just two of the many important traits of this terrific dive site.

When you dive Blue Heron Bridge you encounter numerous sea creatures that are a rarity to find throughout the world. Seahorses and pipefish in all sizes and colors make the top of the list at this amazing dive site. Octopus, including the Atlantic long arm (aka. mimic octopus), can be found while diving here. Add to the list the odd marine life such as sea robins, flying gurnards, batfish, frogfish, stargazers, and over 100 different species of nudibranchs to name a few.

Dive Blue Heron Bridge for a simple and FREE beach shore dive. The deepest depth you’ll find at the bridge is just over 20 feet. A 45 minute to two hour dive is the norm here. Best of all, no matter what the weather is like out on the open ocean, the Blue Heron Bridge is still accessible for diving thanks to its location in the protected Lake Worth Lagoon. Few dive sites in the world give you the option to dive when the weather turns for the worst.

SNORKELING

There is snorkeling at Phil Foster Park, too! With the recent addition of a snorkel trail at the Blue Heron Bridge, even those who are not scuba certified can enjoy this amazing marine park. Opened in August 2012, the Phil Foster Park Artificial Reef and Snorkel Trail is an 800-foot-long tract of artificial reef incorporating more than 600 tons of Anastasia rock boulders in a depth ranging from six to ten feet. In the short span of time since it was created, the Phil Foster Park Artificial Reef and Snorkel Trail has attracted countless marine life. All kinds of juvenile tropical fish can be seen flirting in and out of this artificial reef.

FORCE-E SCUBA DIVING

Scuba Diving in the Riviera Beach area is world famous because it has some of the best diving in the world. Force-E Dive Center can have you diving on a different reef and wreck site every day for over a month. Scuba diving the reefs and wrecks is fantastic. The fish life and the underwater topographies are majestic. Force-E will have you scuba diving on the best sites from the best dive boats in the best place to dive in Florida. Scuba Diving Magazine ranks the diving in this area as better than the Florida Keys in eight out of nine categories. The Riviera area has more fish, more wrecks, better reefs and better boats than anywhere in the U.S. Our water is warm and clear. Most of the dive sites are within 15 minutes of the inlet.

KAYAKING

A few minutes away at MacArthur State Park. Kayakers can paddle around the estuary, under Burnt Bridge into the Lake Worth Lagoon and visit Munyon Island – an outlying part of the Park with a rich history. Depending on the season, you may see wildlife including manatees, dolphins, mullet, snook, rays, and a variety of birds. Munyon Island is best visited when the tide is high, enabling navigation of the scenic interior waterways. You can enjoy the calm kayaking waters of the Park in your own canoe/kayak, by joining a Ranger for a two-hour tour, or by renting a kayak and exploring on your own.

UNBELIEVABLE BEACH

MacArthur Beach State Park, around the corner.

If you are a beach lover, a very special oasis awaits you at the end of a 1,600-foot boardwalk, which spans the most productive estuary system in all of Lake Worth Cove. The Beach spans nearly 2 miles of the clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Snorkel/Scuba Dive from Beach-MacArthur Beach State Park

Scuba diving and snorkeling are permitted. Marine life is abundant on the reef and rock outcroppings that lie in shallow water near the beach. Reef squid, colorful tropical fish and schools of tarpon and snook are a source of delight for snorkelers.

PEANUT ISLAND PARK

80 acres, a short bike ride away (Take ferry just blocks North from Ocean's 11.
