About the neighbourhood
The home sits secluded by tropical foliage on a large corner lot with no immediate neighbors. It's less than a 3 minute bike ride (see Google Maps) to the Gulf of Mexico beach. There is also a public boat ramp just around the corner (but fishing is as close as the large canal across the street). Restaurants and shops are all within minutes by bike, car or the free island trolley.
Getting around
The free island trolley stops a few hundred feet away and runs from dawn til after dark. For your convenience, we still highly recommend renting a car to get to and from airports, for shopping, and exploring the area.
