When you're not exploring the island, you'll love spending your leisure time at this unique, family-friendly retreat. Beautiful hardwood floors create a cool, comfortable place to relax while watching TV or surfing the free WiFi. Pick up some fresh fish from the market and fix yourself a delicious seafood dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, then head downstairs to the covered mezzanine to dine in the open air as the ocean sparkles in the distance. For a small fee, you can even bring your canine friends along to join in the fun too! (Two dogs max, please.) The beach is waiting - book your stay in this delightful vacation home today! *Please contact Vacasa for our special Snowbird rates! *Please note: this home resides in a noise-sensitive area and the owners participate in our Good Neighbor protection program. Our smart home technology will alert our team if excessive decibel or occupancy levels are detected, allowing us to reach out directly with a friendly reminder rather than risking a noise complaint from a neighbor. This technology is privacy compliant, and only monitors the presence of decibels and devices—not any personal conversation or information. Thank you for supporting our efforts to be good neighbors!* Due to local laws or HOA requirements, guests must be at least 21 years of age to book. Guests under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of the reservation.More
