There is plenty do do but if you decide to stay at our wonderful home and just relax, you will have a fantastic time enjoying the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch and if you decide to stroll along our quiet and award winning beaches, you can find a variety of seashells to collect, watch the dolphins swimming by, see the mullet jumping in the bayou or catch the eagles and osprey scouting for prey.
Of course, swimming, sunbathing, fishing in the surf or crabbing in the bayou are always a lot of fun.
Our area outfitters also rent bikes, canoes, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and kayaks and can deliver them to our home if you ask them too!
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!
Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway.
