Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday in Stone Harbor
4 bedrooms, 3 baths, outside h & c shower, sleeps 8, wireless available
Stone Harbor, known as Seven Mile Beach, is distinguished by quaint shops and restaurants. It is a hub of activity all day long, all season long. A short walk away, beautiful sloping beaches stretch the length of the island. This close proximity of beach and town allows you to stroll from sand and water to ice cream parlors and gift shops while enjoying the casual, relaxed atmosphere of the seashore.
Dotting the island are recreational areas for informal sports activities of all kinds: tennis, volleyball, soccer, baseball, basketball, paddleball, miniature golf and playgrounds. Several quality golf courses, while not on the island, are easily accessible from Stone Harbor.
The island is approximately seven miles in length and is only three to four city blocks in width. Stone Harbor occupies the southern half of the island extending from 80th Street to Hereford Inlet with Avalon to the north.
With the Inland Waterway to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Stone Harbor offers opportunities for water sports of every kind, from fishing to jet skiing, we have it all! Luxurious pleasure boats, chartered fishing vessels, skiffs and ocean going excursion boats are ready to launch you on an exciting, seafaring adventure!
From the breath-taking sunrises to unsurpassed sunsets, you can enjoy all that Stone Harbor has to offer all day long. We are sure you will find all you need for a wonderful vacation right here.
Our charming Bay Front, first floor duplex, is situated on the Shelter Haven Cove, which is conveniently located on the trendy 96th Avenue shopping. You can easily walk everywhere: two and-one-half blocks to the beach, two blocks to the cinema, within a two-block radius of 12 restaurants, across the street from the barber shop and bike shop, two blocks from hip art studios, two blocks from three bakeries and two ice cream parlors (including Springer’s). There is a lot of exciting activity right out your doorstep, yet once inside the apartment, you are immediately in your own quiet retreat overlooking the serene Bay.
Stone Harbor offers visitors a safe, clean, friendly, family atmosphere while maintaining a unique tradition of quality among seashore communities. We hope that you enjoy your visit with us and that you will return again and again.

Why The Owner chose Stone Harbor
Everyone may go to the beach but you can only go to the bay by invitation.
We have the quietness of the bay viewing the setting sun each evening and watching the boats, bay, and birds.
