The pool heating cost ranges from $30 and up depending on air temperature. Payable at check-out with check or cash. PARTY HOUSE - This rental is for families only. This is not available as a party house for young people. If it is rented for that purpose the party will be shut down and no refunds given. SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS: The main house master bedroom has a king size bed and a double size sleeper sofa. Bedroom 2 has a king size bed. Bedroom 3 has a queen size bed. The living room has a queen size sleeper sofa. PING PONG TABLE - For all to enjoy. POND - Enjoy fishing in the pond, feeding the 15 turtles, and be amused by the beautiful birds that inhabit the property. Rubber raft is available for exploring. Throw bread into the pond from the gazebo and the turtles and fish will come over to you. They all enjoy an easy meal. There has never been an alligator in the pond. WINDING PATHWAYS - The winding paved pathways will take you through the natural gardens and butterfly plants that surround the property. Over 10,000 flowering tropical plants with rich red, yellow, white and purple flowers line the nearly half mile of pathways. The most colorful time of year is summertime when dozens of species are in full bloom. See hundreds of huge, magnificent plants (which are too large for typical homes) line the 1,000 foot perimeter of the property. There are over 100 huge trees scattered throughout which provide welcome shade, cool air and homes for countless butterflies including Monarch, Gulf Fritillary, Pipevine Swallowtail, Cloudless Sulpher and Zebra Longwing (Florida's State Butterfly) who play regularly in the thousands of plants available just for them. TENNIS COURTS- You have access to 2 private tennis courts a few blocks away. We supply 2 tennis rackets and tennis balls. BEACHES - Several beaches are located nearby. We include beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, and coolers for your trips to the beach. NOISE LEVELS - Must be kept to a normal level since this is a normal residential neighborhood.

Interaction with guests
I live on the property full time in a separate area with separate entrance so that I will not be seen or heard. I do enjoy meeting new people and discussing family, politics, sports, music and just about everything else. If you need some recommendations as to where to go visit and explore just ask.
