Why this property? We stayed in this house years ago as children and teens and have fond memories of summers here, making homemade ice cream and hunting in the intercostal for scallops!
As children we remember the old wooden bridge leading to the beach from the mainland and the sound crossing it would usually wake us up from the long trip from Tampa! I remember the smell of the pine needles from the Australian Pines that used to line the beaches. The wooden bridge and pines are gone now but the flavor of Old Florida remains in this area of older beach cottages, low rise condos and 2 lane streets.

Fabulous house on beach
We rented this house in January for a get-together. The space was just perfect with lots of privacy for three non-related adults. Many sitting areas, a very well stocked kitchen, a sunroom with a view of the ocean, a patio practically on the beach. We loved everything about our stay! Would definitely stay again.
