Below the back deck is a covered hang out area. This is also the area that has a shower to wash sand off of you before coming into the house. From this area there is a wooden walkway leading to the canal.
The backyard is full of white sand. So the kids can enjoy building sand castles while you grill up dinner! Our back yard has direct access to the canal. You can drop a line in and do some fishing or you can use the house's kayaks (we have 4) and take a trip out to the Sound! There are little fish and crabs visible in the shallow water which the kids will love. Fish also leap out of the water and if you're lucky you may even spot dolphins!
To round out the outdoor space is our brand new fire pit! This was added in March 2020 and is a great addition to the home. Sit by the fire, make smore's, look at the moon, and listen to the waves. You'll also see the fish jumping in the kayak!
As soon as you pull up to the house you will pull into the oversized driveway which holds up to 8 cars. There is additional parking in the street if needed. You'll also see 2 garage doors. When you open these doors, you will see a large garage area. This is where all the outdoor equipment is housed. There is also a foosball table so it's a good place to let the older kids play in! The back of the house has 2 matching garage doors. You can open all 4 doors and it creates a refreshing breezeway through the space making it a great shaded hangout space. You can access this space from either side of the home or the main level of the house.
We offer a wide variety of outdoor equipment for you to utilize while you're here. We have beach toys, sport balls, bikes, kayaks, folding chairs and more!
