My husband, myself and our small dog enjoyed an amazing vacation for a week in this exceptional home. From the moment we arrived we felt as though we had been welcomed to a paradise destination. The house was incredibly clean and inviting with warm scents which created a relaxing ambience. The beautiful pictures displayed on the website are outstanding but the actual home is even more immaculate both inside and out. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and quiet with friendly helpful people. It was wonderful that the owner had taken the time to send us well-described lists of nearby restaurants and local attractions which made our stay more enjoyable and less stressful trying to find different places to visit. This information was also included in a booklet at the house with other necessary instructions. There are 4 very nice tennis courts within a 5 minute drive in a great setting surrounded by stunning fields of horses. The overall location, layout and amenities are ideal for so many purposes and suitable for all ages to enjoy a fantastic getaway. Great activities suggested by the owner were Stumpknockers (excellent food and setting), Rainbow Springs, Blue Gators, and Pecks Cove Seafood Restaurant (nice drive to the Gulf for delicious food) which we would not have discovered if these places weren't included in the list of attractions and restaurants. We also visited the local beach located at the Gulf which is only a short drive to a peaceful place to spend the day. The Manatee Tour and Dive is nearby and a wonderful opportunity for all family members to experience a unique Florida activity. Overall, we had a wonderful holiday and it was difficult to leave such a comfortable house that has so much to offer without having to go very far. We would definitely recommend this property to others who are looking for a perfect vacation destination with owners who provide fantastic customer service. Thank you very much.
