My husband and another couple stayed at this house for a week and it was glorious! The house was immaculate, comfortable and very well-appointed. Both the living room and master bedroom suite have amazing views of the beach.
The house came stocked with excellent kitchen supplies for easy cooking and a great bbq pit.
The garage was stocked with great beach supplies - chairs, umbrellas, floats etc. The beach was a quiet getaway with clean white sand and clear warm water.
There were restaurants and activities close by and we were only a 15 min from Clearwater. We kayaked from Clearwater to Caladesi island which was really fun, we saw dolphins, fish, birds and found some really unique shells.
We also drove to Tampa one evening for a night out and ate at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City. It was fantastic, great food, great sangria, great music and flamenco dancing; definitely worth the 45 min drive.
We were all sad to leave at the end of the week and can't wait to return!
Our main reason for coming to Luray was the convenience to the Thornton Gap access to Skyline drive and hiking in SNP; we found this property last year and loved it so much we returned again this year.
The upgraded living room and new central air conditioning were surprise bonuses on our return, but luckily we didn't need the AC during our June week (except to cure a little stuffiness from being closed up during the daytime when we were gone).
Basically we were up and out by 9;30 every morning for hiking or kayaking on the river, and then back by 4:00 for dinner and nighttime fire in the fire pit. We had brought our own croquet and bocci and played them on the lawn.
A big plus is the amount of porch space with roof overhang, meaning that if its raining you can stay outside much of the time and play games on the picnic table.
We found nothing lacking and as such I've never spoken with or met the owner, except as part of the Homeaway booking process. I would certainly consider another return if we decide to come back to Skyline for another year of hiking.
We had a really great time from the minute we got to the island, we were looking for that peaceful relaxed getaway a place that the kids will see nature and play all day at the pool. We liked the spa and everything that the place had to offer 5 Star hotel.
Great place to bond a family without running around to the local mall or shopping center . We were overwhelmed from the villa it was very nice clean and we had everything we needed , dishes , kitchenware ,towels and etc... , we really recommend and we know that we will go back . A special thanks to the owner Hank that stayed in touch from the minute of booking ***** thanks
