I live in Miami, Fl

Elena WILLIFORD purchased this house in 1995

Why Elena WILLIFORD chose Central Florida Keys

I fell in love with this island in 1995 and it does not get better than your own private island. My children all were raise there and it was magical. Now all of them young adults still love and enjoy our family and friends gatherings.

What makes this house unique

It is built on a coral reef. I can swim right off the island and fish right off the island. The home has 19 sliding glass doors all open to a 12 foot veranda and the breeze is amazing.

Fun, fun, fun.

Snorkeling the moat, fishing, relaxing in the warm summer breeze and critter catching are just a few of the awesome things we did while on the island.

Definitely 'glamping'. You have to get used to the idea of using a generator for A/C and really pay attention to what you use that may eat up electricity. We found that to be a lot of the charm and fun.

We had five kids ranging from 13-4 years of age. All had fun things to do and everyone one of them was sad to leave.

Lifetime memeories were made during our weeks stay.
