My parents built a house there and have been living there full time since 2015. They love it! They originally picked that's location for the same reason, as a base for cruising. They haven't even slept on the boat once since moving down there. As far as hurricanes go, it's pretty far in from the coast and hurricanes are pretty weakened by then. But if it's going to be a direct hit, they evacuate the marina and go up river and anchor
. Can't speak for the golf course, but the other amenities are nice, but there is a HOA.
