Newly renovated in 2017, our plantation style cottage is 1000 square foot, 2 bedroom /1 bath cottage in a peaceful and serene location on 1.6 acres. The cottage is simple yet decorated in tropical, relaxed, fun décor so take your shoes off and put your feet up. You will experience rain in our lush green vibrant jungle. You will experience the natural sounds of coqui frogs and possibly see wild pigs roaming our jungle neighborhood. There is a beautiful covered lanai for birdwatching, dining, relaxing in a hammock or having your coffee in the morning. We added a brand new covered picnic pavilion with a 12 foot long picnic table with a smoker/bbq in our park like yard. Smoking allowed outside only in our covered picnic pavilion. No smoking in the home or on lanai.
**Note** Even though it is peaceful much of the time, there are neighboring humans who argue on occasion.
There is a queen bed, dresser and closet in the downstairs bedroom with hangars, iron and ironing board. Upstairs in the loft are 2 twin beds and a queen sized futon with plenty of extra blankets in the unlikely event it gets chilly.
