It made me think...THIS is what I missed out on not being a surfer in the seventies. It felt like a well loved older beach bungalow WITHOUT any annoying, precious Home and Garden pretensions.
It was so well organized, e.g. large, thick beach towels stacked on a table by the side door that leads out to cement patio and gravel area, to seating areas with amazing views, to the laundry line that was always in use by my husband, sister and me (with dive gear drying), and every bit of that side shaded by a large, over-arching Seagrape tree--you could sit there any time of day, in the breeze coming off the ocean steps away, and stay cool.
While we were there the winds were unusually up the whole time. There were white caps on the ocean out side the reef, and inside too, some days. But my husband and I are strong enough swimmers. We dove every day, either from the Barcadere ladder or from the Buccaneer pool a half block east. We then snorkeled out to the nearest mooring ball, dropped down and dove rest of way along finger reefs back to inlet and ladder at Barcadere. We dove once with Brac Shack (great people!), but really, when you wake up every morning and find all the dive boats moored out in front of your house, well, why would I pay them when I can just swim out? Oh, you DO have to tow a diver's flag at all times, and considering all the dive boats that utilize this area, seems a no-brainer. You can rent that too, at Brac Shack. To rent tanks, you get one at a time and have to return it to get another, but they are literally a five minute drive away, so no big whoop there.
You do have to carry the ladder to the Barcadere inlet each time you dive and pull it out after. It's a regular, one sided aluminum ladder like you might use to paint your house, not hard to carry or put in/out, just make sure you feel physically capable, which if you're a diver, you will.
As other's have mentioned the upstairs master bedroom gets very hot in the afternoon and does not cool down easily even with the a.c. set to seventy five two hours before bed. I wish their Ductless mini-split ac unit--there was one on the wall--had actually worked. Instead there was a window unit. We managed . . .
My sister used the downstairs bedroom, one without ac blowing directly on bed, and was comfy. All beds very comfy! Kitchen, living-room really roomy; lots of screened windows. Bathrooms perfectly serviceable. We all can't wait to come back!
