A civilian's perspective on life in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
Monday, August 27, 2012
I've been waiting to do a post on our house until I got some good pictures. I must say, I love our house! I was preparing myself to be disappointed, realizing that base homes are often older and a tad out of date. This house is anything but that description. Sure, it is older, built sometime before 1978, but it is certainly not out of date. Nor is it small. At least not for us. This house is quite a bit bigger than our previous house in FL. And the neighborhood is great too. It is basically the closest that we could get to the "happenings" of gtmo like the NEX, chapel, sports complex, restaurants, bowling alley, movie theater, swimming pool, library, etc. We are also situated on top of a hill and have a 360 degree view! It's breath-taking. I still can't believe I get to live here!
Here are a couple of details:
4 bedroom / 2 1/2 baths
approx. 2000 sq. ft.
indoor laundry room!!!!
The front view of our house. Ours is the left half. Notice the playground behind the white vehicle.
This is the backyard. That tree is ours! I love, love, love it!
View out of our front door. The dock is called "officer's landing".
Another view out our front door. Those houses are senior officer homes.
The marina. Also out our front door.
The playground. Notice the awnings? Fantastic!
View from our backyard. That is the chapel where we worship.
View from our side yard. That is the sports complex.
