About our home

Our beautiful home has Brazilian hardwood cherry floors throughout, new kitchen and SS appliances featuring an induction stove. Our brilliant Fiestaware will make every meal lively and cheery. If you're in luck, the mangoes, pineapples, and bananas may be in season. Hammocks are stretched between palms in the back overlooking the wide sea-walled canal leading to the Gulf. Excellent shopping and restaurants in the area. Comfort bikes and kayaks available for your enjoyment in our garage. Plenty of waterways and bike trails to explore. Accessibility for disabled is a work in progress. Please check on our current status. House exterior is now painted a soft pastel green-gray and attractive military-grade hurricane shutters have recently been installed. Please note that our seawall is level with our back yard, is not fenced, and is a concern for young children. Note that our insurance requires MINIMUM stays of .one week. Two week or longer stays available at significantly reduced rates.


More about us

  1. I enjoy history and appreciate architecture.

  2. I'm a retired teacher (math, special ed) and licensed child welfare agency founder and administrator. Shelley and I were married May 2, 2020. I sold my place and moved in with Shelley in Estero, Florida. Therefore, I only have points to offer.

  3. I enjoy biking and kayaking, all quite casual.
