You'll find alfresco dining for six to eight, a gorgeous outdoor living room with a fire feature, an outdoor billiards table and a large kidney shaped pool with a tanning deck. The barbecue, two-person outdoor shower, rolling lawn, mature plantings and towering palm trees all add to the magic of this property. The best just got better!
