I noticed that even the palms, of which there are plenty, were nicely trimmed.
The veranda, which is at least 12 feet wide, wraps around 2 sides of the house. There are more than enough places to find the perfect vista, given different times of the day. There are a pair of Adirondack rocking chairs on the east side that make watching the sunrise over the Atlantic a pleasure (Lorrie is our there right now while I'm typing this post).
Further around the veranda is a table to dine al fresco, something we probably will do when we have Judy and Andre over for dinner and drinks.
Those chasse loungers in the foreground are on a raised platform that make watching the waves breaking along the north shore even easier. And then finally against the west wall is a built in bench that give spectacular views looking out east along the beach front.
An added bonus of having La Chata beach right outside the house is being able to walk the beach, early in the morning, picking up the newly washed beach glass. Lorrie and I were awarded this cache of pieces on our first walk:
There are hammocks that can be strung between the palm trees (something I hope we have time to do since we like our hammocks back home so much.) Washer and dryer are outside as well as a cloths line strung between a couple palms (something that Lorrie and I really appreciate and wonder why more houses don't have it.)
Clean neat, with lots of different areas to hang out. Great first impression. Next time I'll move inside the house.
