Did you know that you need a permit to drive a boat in Everglades National Park?

This affects upper Florida Keys residents that boat on the bay side. Areas west of the channel markers are considered part of the Park. If you are boating in this area and get pulled over, they will ask you for your Everglades National Park Boater Permit. If you don’t have one, you will be fined. This just became effective this month. The license is free this year and will be @ $50.00 next year.

To get your permit, you can go to Enter course name Everglades National Park Online Boater Education Course. Once you take the course, you must pass the assessment with 80% (minimum 12 out of 15 questions). Print out or scan a copy of your certificate to your phone.

Conveniently located bayside in Tavernier (mile marker 93), Sunset Acres has quick access to the ocean via Tavernier Creek. It is an hour drive from Miami and close to shopping, movie theaters and restaurants. This is a small friendly community with concrete homes, modular homes and manufactured homes. We have lived here for 5 years and absolutely love it.

Some misconceptions of manufactured homes are that they can not be financed. This is not true. If the home is built after 1976, they are financeable via conventional loans with as low as 10% down payment. Also, the new homes are being built to withstand 180 mile an hour winds.  Many come equipped with impact windows and metal roofs.

Currently, there are several homes for sale in Sunset Acres, including:

124 Sunset Lane              3/2        updated             asking $339k

144 Sunset Lane              3/2        double lot           asking $359k

104 Mangrove Lane        3/2        boatlift                asking $598k

103 Starfish Lane            4/3        CBS + boatlift     asking $899k
