Referred to by the homeowner as the 'Gatekeepers Home', this home is accessed by crossing a small canal bridge, and it's one of the first homes you'll see as you enter "Thomas Island" Caribbean Isles is a waterfront community with canals throughout, and a resident owned boat and kayak launch. There is no lot rent as ownership includes a share of ownership in the community. Cute and affordable, there is still the opportunity to add touches to update the home to your vision of retirement or as a seasonal residence. The home has a cute front porch entrance, a 'sitting area' as you enter into the living room, a space for a more formal dining area, and a recently re-tiled kitchen. The master bedroom has an en suite and updated bathroom, ample closet space, and high windows giving you a spectacular view of the Florida sky. A large and shaded Florida Room awaits your relaxation. Love to garden? There's room for that as well. The community center and pool provide the residents with a place to socialize. Take your golf cart for a spin around the neighborhood where neighbors acknowledge each other with a friendly wave. Make an appointment soon and once you purchase a home here you will join one of the most friendly communities in Apollo Beach.
