I wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the beach house. The house was absolutely beautiful and we loved the beach! It was not very busy and the gulf waters were so warm ... and shallow enough that we could enjoy a lot of nice wading and casual swimming. We saw a dolphin one day, and a group of 6 stingray swimming close to shore another day. We really appreciated all the beach chairs/umbrellas and other equipment in the garage. When we landed in Tampa last Saturday, I told my husband "Darn, I forgot to go to the library and get a couple of books to read." Well, that was not an issue with all the books and magazines that were available to us. Our teenage daughter and her friend really loved the separate downstairs bedroom, so they stayed together in that room instead of one of them using the upstairs bedroom. They felt like they were in an apartment! It was a good way for them to have their separate space and give us some peace and quiet inside the house. All in all, a very good visit! I'm not sure when we will be back in the area for another vacation, but we will definitely book your place again.
