If you didn't feel like you were in a tropical oasis, you will as soon as you walk into this backyard. The first thing that will catch your eye is the 25 foot waterfall with pond as you look across the yard. You can't help but notice the towering palms and bird of paradise trees that adorn the perimeter of the yard or the gorgeous flagstone around the pond and in the middle of the courtyard. A secluded hot tub is available for relaxing after a day of sightseeing or you may want to use the large BBQ for dinners.
