Built in the mid 1970's when property on the Island was a LOT less expensive the Christopher Columbus runs parallel to the sea rather than perpendicular to give the 30 condominiums 330 feet of beautiful beach front.
16 first and second floor condos and 4 third floor penthouses face the sea. The first and second floor units have two bedrooms and a den although many are converted to three bedroom units. The penthouses have three bedrooms and a den. All have large sliding glass doors that face the sea.
Five units on the North side and five on the South side are referred to as "Garden View" units. Even though the floor plan for these ten units is basically the same... they are by no means equal in value. All have two bedrooms and two baths with living room, dining area and a kitchen. They all have the same large sliding glass doors that open onto a patio but that is where the similarity stops.
"Garden View" Unit 24 is unique. It has a beautiful view of palm trees, beach and the Caribbean Sea [see picture to right].
