The villas and everything you need to rent are all here. Add to that a year round Hurricane free warm climate, a sandy area rimmed saltwater swimming lagoon for a kid friendly environment. It's complete with starfish, octopus, sea cucumbers, conch, many varieties of fish. Pet Mangrove Snapper and Spotted Eagle Rays as they swim by. Then there's the shallow coral reef outside the swimming lagoon with beautiful coral and fish (a water photographer's dream). The colorful coral reef wall (25’-30’ vertical) is great for snorkeling or diving is right off the 130’ boat dock.

The owners built this dream resort as a labor of love. You could build off of their years of hard work. Get serious and really operate the place at it's full potential as a profit center.
