Retired and living the Island life, Cindy and I welcome you to stay in our wonderful one bedroom apartment on the ground floor of our home. 100 steps from the beach, just blocks from the Historic Pleasure Pier, great restaurants and shops. Sleeps a family of four comfortably.
One large bedroom with King sized bed, dresser and desk. Walk in closet with stacked washer and dryer. Bathroom with tub/shower combo. The living room has a unique built in sectional with two extra long twin beds. After a long day at the beach, many of our guests fall asleep on these beds watching the 40" flat screen tv. Fully equipped island kitchen and dining room with all new stainless steel appliances. An outdoor patio has a small dining table and two adirondack chairs to relax in.
During your stay you will have access to the complete one bedroom apartment on the first floor of our home. This includes a first floor patio with outdoor dining and lounging area. There are no stairs or steps in this apartment making it perfect for an older couple challenged to climb stairs. The apartment is completely separate from our home with a double locking door into our garage which remains locked. The perimeter of our home is under 24hour video surveillance by six individual cameras recorded 24 hrs a day.
