Description: Nothing says paradise like palm trees -- and this property has them. The real deck also looks out on sand dunes anchored by tropical grasses and flowering shrubs.
There's also a meandering brick path that passes koi ponds, lush succulent plants and inviting wooden benches. Indoor features include a big, modern kitchen with custom cabinets, a family room with a line of windows and ocean views from many of the rooms. There is also a three-bedroom guest suite.
