These large vacation homes are mostly three stories tall and feature a classic Mediterranean-style look. They include terracotta tiled roofs, breezy balconies, and lower-level verandas. Some of these lavish homes include private swimming pools and bubbling hot tubs. However, a community swimming pool overlooks the lovely lake. It has an expansive sun deck patio with chairs for leisurely lounging. There is also a grilling area where guests may enjoy having an outdoor cookout. The sugary white shoreline overlooks the glowing jewel-toned gulf just a short stroll away from those residences that are not beachfront.
