Come share my home, "Three Palms," while you stay in its adorable private guest cottage "The Dew Drop Inn II" on the grounds. This property was once the home of a famous female painter and her Artist Studio still stands between the Main House and The Cottage. Beyond The Studio is a very secluded full-sized swimming pool with sunning patio and screened gazebo with 185' on Flamingo Lake.
There is no "competition" to use the bikes, gas grill, in-ground pool or parking because you two are the only "guests" here other than the birds and wild life. So many types of birds, wood storks, ibis, blue heron, egret, eagle and osprey in your own back yard that you will need a book to identify them all. The lake is teeming with fish, painted shell turtles and even an occasional otter family or alligator.

This is a small cottage with a waterfront view.  Clean and tastefully decorated.  What it lacks in space, it makes up in charm. There is a constant traffic of Ibises, Herons, Anhingas, etc. which gives you the impression of being part of nature.  The location is quiet but still close to amenities and attractions. The owner is just next door...
