Lovely condo across the street from the beach, screened back porch deck with a beautiful marsh view, private setting backing up to a nature reserve. Watch exquisite birds as they wade in the water or fly over with their prey; see turtles in the swamp below the deck or if you are really lucky as the Loggerheads hatch on the beach between July and November; you even be able to safely watch the alligators below the deck as they warm themselves in the sun or watch over their new hatchlings. Walk the beach and find shells and fossils including sharks teeth. Rent a catamaran, kayak, paddle board or surfboard. Fly a kite. For exercise or leisure ride a bike on the beach during low tide. Rent a houseboat or take a cruise on the inter-coastal waterway.

Rae is an awesome host and a wonderful person!! She’s very warm, kind, helpful - and generous beyond words. She greeted me as though were old friends; immediately showed me the house (which is exactly as shown) then gave me a guided tour of the beach. She graciously let me interrupt her work whenever I had a question, provided information about the area , and gave me tips and directions for my drive along the coast. My son and his family happened to be vacationing in the area at the time I was there and Rae allowed them to come by to see me. She welcomed them into her home just as freely and warmly as she had me - and even let them use her beach chairs! AND when I was leaving, she told me to call her when I got home so she’d know that I arrived safely. I had a fabulous vacation at Rae’s home and hope to return one day.
Thanks again for everything, Rae. ¡Hasta luego!
