Wooden louvre breezeways enfold the house in privacy, encircling it with breezes.


The attentive house keeper  looks after the needs of guests, and can arrange everything from lunch to golf cart rentals, while seeing to it that all your needs are met.

Testimonial: My family loved this house. We were fascinated by the unusual, breezeway-wrapped layout, beautiful appointments, and having so many lovely spaces for the generations to mingle with each other or "do their own thing." We also loved being able to walk to ocean, town, or bay. -- Murphys, Washingon DC.

Price: $7700 week
