Our group had an amazing time staying at this house. The location could not be better. Very private property, with plenty of space outdoor, nice screened in porch with lots of seating and a swing, and access to the river right off the property. Close to shopping, state parks, and the beach at Pine island.
It's not a huge house, but there's enough room and we had no problem with a group of 6 adults. The house is clean and well maintained. It's also well air -conditioned, so it was always nice coming back inside after a hot day out in the sun.
We were able to fish right off the property and caught a barracuda and bass, we also put to use a crab trap available at the house and had a crab dinner one of the nights.
Kayaking up and down the river was one of our favorite activities. The area is great for bird watching, manatee, and other wild life. We saw manatees on several occasions while kayaking on the river, and once a manatee came right to the dock by the house, very exciting.
We spent a lot of time just lounging outside and sunbathing, there are two swings and several chairs set-up on the front yard, you can get out and sit in the sun or set-up yourself in the shade of the trees and enjoy the cool breeze.
With shopping and restaurants only 4-5 miles away, it's an ideal location to get away from it all and yet be relatively close to everything civilization has to offer.
Working with Dale was easy and pleasant. He was there to greet us when we arrived, showed us around the property, and explained how we can get in touch with him if something comes up.
This is not the cheapest property in the area but all the amenities make it totally worth every penny. We would recommend this rental if you looking for privacy, get away from it all, nature watching, fishing.
Thank you Dale for everything. We are looking forward to coming back.
