      What a unique structure! I think that it would be fun to be able to stay in the Conch Shell House...although I am sure that it is probably very expensive to rent. Thanks for telling us about it. Voted interesting!

      How interesting, ryanjhoe! I must say, I'm intrigued. The house looks fabulous from the outside, but I am not such a fan from the inside. I don't know whether I would like to rent it or not... the views must be incredible though, and it certainly is different. Thanks for highlighting it and bringing it to our attention. :)
