It is almost flat and makes a wonderful place star gaze.
There is very little light pollution at this location so star gazing is excellent! If you are here for a full moon it rises over the channel as the waters turn from orange to golden and the cloud shadows carve a living calico mosaic at the whim of the winds.
You have to see, hear and feel it to even imagine how magnificently beautiful it is.
Privacy, views & breezes are the primary features!

There are 2 projects in the works that will happen this fall.
As part of a grant there is going to be grading and GEO-WEB installed on the 300' bad section up top before the right turn on Rock Me Road.
There is another grant with matching funds to make a concrete intersection turning the water from above that turn to divert it into the gut and also pave a 300' concrete lane next to the GEO-WEB.
There will also be grading done on the other bad areas lower down the hill.
There is community cooperation and financial input agreed upon for these projects.
GUESTS COMMENTS: "Beautiful house and even better views!
We had an amazing stay at Fiddlers Green for our vacation.
The house is even more beautiful than the pictures and the views are spectacular! There is a constant breeze, so we never felt warm (even on some pretty hot days).
The kitchen is well-equipped and had everything we needed to eat in most meals.
There were coolers, snorkeling gear, and all the beach stuff we would need.
The house is right on a great hiking trail and the owner had great suggestions for snorkeling spots all over the island.
We had a chance to go sailing with him for the day on his boat (White Wing) and it was a highlight of our trip.
He was one of the best hosts we've had in Coral Bay - super helpful and responsive.
It's clear he's put a lot of love and detail into this house.
As everyone else has mentioned, four-wheel drive is a must to navigate the road up to the house but it is only a four minute drive from the main road (we timed it!).
We can't wait to come back and will definitely stay here again!"
