Desert Rose is the ultimate in tropical indoor /outdoor living. Inside on the main floor is a large open kitchen, long breakfast bar, dining and living areas all under a high cathedral ceiling. Double French Doors at either end of the main living area open onto large screened decks. More French Doors provide a private access from each bedroom to sitting areas on the decks and the balcony in the master bedroom. Large cool Mexican tiles soothe bare feet as your mind unwinds in a southwestern motif with a Key West soul.

About the neighbourhood
Desert Rose resides in the narrow middle of our barrier island's 7 miles of sugar sand beach. It is home to herons, snowy egrets, pelicans, ospreys and gulls. Watch for a pod of hungry dolphins accompanying you along the shoreline as you walk the beach with your morning coffee. Wildlife is abundant on the island's golf course as well just 3 miles from the house. Three miles further south, over the bridge at Big Carlos pass, is Lovers Key state park, a barrier island wilderness and preserve with a very popular beach for dogs. At the north end of the island is the fishing pier and Times Square with a variety of restaurants, shops and live music venues. At the very north end. is Bowditch park and preserve that borders the channel to the back bay harbor where the shrimp fleet is moore... more
