Large cool Mexican tiles soothe bare feet as your mind unwinds in a southwestern motif with a Key West soul. The outdoor part of this tropical paradise is the 3rd floor balcony looking toward the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico and the 2 large screened decks at either end of the house. Relax in the afternoon sun in the hammoc on the front porch then dine on the back deck overlooking ...Desert Rose is the ultimate in tropical indoor /outdoor living.

After dinner, massage those tired muscles against the Jacuzzi jets as you relax on the built-in pool bench and watch television. Beach chairs and bicycles are at your disposal. The Gulf of Mexico, the back bay and the grocery are all just a 5 minute walk from your front door. Snookbight, the island' s newest marina is right behind the market on the bay. They offer boat slips and a variety of water craft to rent, fishing charters as well as a fine restaurant with an open dining room overlooking Estero Bay. All just steps from the tranquility of your tropical hideaway. Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed, 2 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa BedsMore

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 moored. Over ...
