How likely am I to get eaten by an alligator ?
You have a better chance at getting killed by a pig - truly! - than you are to get bit by a gator.  We're not on their diet and the island is alligator incident free! Also the island is salt water with 2 tides most days and gators require fresh water to live.

What's fishing like there ?
Bring your fishin' rods and choose between fishing off the island, from the dock, or make arrangements with one of the local fishing guides that come highly recommended for an exciting afternoon.  This is of one our favorite past times. Trout, flounder, stingray, black and red drum and more have been caught from the point of the island with bait from the shop about a mile from the island. Record tarpon and reds have been reeled in close by.

Does the kitchen have a blender ?
Yep, and that's not all - both upper and lower units are each equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, and more. If there's a question about any other appliances or something you specifically need during your stay,  please feel free to email us with your inquiry anytime.
