About this listing
Spectacular Crescent Beach is just off your very private deck and out your window. All you hear is the roll of the waves as you sit watching dolphin, whale and pelicans glide by.
Although private, this house is minutes to a few restaurants.
Location, location, location, says it all. MOST private and quiet oceanfront property on spectacular Crescent Beach. You won't see another person -- unless you want to!
Walk down the private walkway to hit the beach for a swim or a walk (you can go for miles), although private, this house is just a few minutes walk to a couple of bars and restaurants most of which serve delicious seafood and refreshing drinks while you soak up the low-key beach vibe.
If you want, jump in the car and the world of zoo's, museums, architecture and history is yours. Dozens of parks and ecological destinations within miles. Rent a bike or a kayak and see things from yet another angle-- but then again, it's not easy to leave that deck!
Perfect house for the Big Chill week, a family reunion or a girls get away.

We're Ann and Michael, we bought this home as a retirement property but only spend part of the year here.
We love to walk the beach, shelling and fishing along the way. Great food, biking, kayaking and yoga close by to keep us busy.
We are 'house people', we like to fiddle and fix and decorate. This house, aside from being on an amazing beach is very private and we have just started to bring in our antiques-- making it a bit more elegant than most rental beach houses.
We also cook, and this house has a fantastic kitchen (renovated and updated in 2016) to make great meals-- especially for a number of cooks to do their thing all at once. Buy the fresh fish and grill it on the deck or in one of two ovens and wash it down with all the wine you can fit into the separate wine fridge-- then walk it out to the deck for a moon lit dinner!
The wildlife on our little island is impressive, from the birds that fly along the beach and nest in the spring, to the dolphins and whales that you will see passing by or the turtles that nest on the beach and live in the dunes, its like living in a ecological park.
