5 Stars on the property, house, gazebo and pool. One of the best vacations we shared with our children and grandchildren. We love to be active and want to share a list of all the attractions we went to while vacationing at the house. It took between 1/2 - 1 hour to travel to some, but it was always worth the trip! A dip in the pool before and after added to the pleasure.

Thank you Janice and David
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!
We had a great time the four days and three nights we visited. The owners were more than helpful during our stay. They really went above and beyond our expectations. We had everything we needed to make smores on the counter when we arrived. Thank you Janice! The house was clean and just as described. There was more than enough space for our family, 2 adults and 7 children. The river views are amazing. This house truly has everything you will need on your stay. We over packed a lot of amenities that are already there! The only thing I could have used were some toddler toys, although with all of the new surroundings I am not sure he would've played with them anyway! The kids (ages 13 years-18 months) all had something to do. Puzzles, kayaks, watching the birds and playing on the pier were all favorites. We were lucky enough to have the owners staying next door so we were given a wealth of information about the area and even a boat ride to catch some fish! We visited a trout hatchery nearby which the kids really enjoyed. We also took a trip over to Hershey's Chocolate world which was about 20-30 minutes away. The house is near a highway and a train track, but neither bothered us on our stay. In fact we kind of liked hearing the trains go by since we do have many where we live. It was very peaceful, we only wished we could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and if we return it will be for more than just a couple of days!
