A deed restriction placed by the developer of Middle Island limits use of the road through the Sanctuary to:

  • Property owners and accompanied guests
  • Conservancy staff and accompanied guests, including educational tour participants

Therefore, the use of the Marina property is also limited to Middle Island property owners and their accompanied guests.

To help enforce the deed restriction, improve security at the Marina, limit the number of unauthorized users, and reduce the cost of key management, the Association is limiting the number of keys to the gate to the Ibis Lake Sanctuary and Cape Creek Marina.  To replace the old broken padlock, we have installed a padlock with keys that cannot be copied.

  • One key will be sent, at no charge, to:
    • The owner of an improved lot
    • The owner of an unimproved lot, on request.
  • A second key will be provided at a cost of $10 to:
    • The owner of an improved lot, on request.
    • The owner of more than one lot, on request.
    • The owner of an unimproved lot who sends an explanation of why a second key is needed.
  • Any owner requiring a replacement key or a third key should send a request explaining the need.  If issued, there will be a $25 charge.
  • The BHI Conservancy will receive three keys at no charge.

Requests for keys should be sent to middleislandpoa@gmail.com.  We'll send information about how you can pay for the key.  Usually, keys will be sent to the owner's address by mail.  If you need to have the key sent to a different address, please include that address in the email.  

  • If an owner has an urgent, temporary need for a key, David (or a Board member with a spare key) may provide a key after sending a picture of the owner’s driver’s license to middleislandpoa@gmail.com and collecting a $50 deposit to assure return of the key.

Because of the deed restriction limiting access to owners and guests accompanied by the property owners, each key holder agrees that only Middle Island property owners and Conservancy staff will use the keys.

  • Specifically, the key shall not be available to renters.
