Yes we were sorry the deposit was delayed, but unfortunately we had no
control over the weather when it was mailed and with all the snow we were told mailed was held up in Chicago for well over a week.
We always do our best to meet the time frame, again sincere apologies,
we are very happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return.
Unbelievably beautiful spot with sunsets you have to see to believe. Fantastic 80 ft lap pool used by all the group every day and suitable for really keen swimmers. Very spacious accommodation.
Highlight of the week must go to the TWO days we spent out with Captain Todd on his boat cruising around the sand bars, watching dolphins and just generally chilling out in the extreme.
We will go back again !
Highly recommended place to get away from the stresses of everyday life!
This was the most fantastic, relaxing, peaceful, calm and rejuvinating holiday we have had. The location, the views, the wildlife and the sunsets absolutely blew our minds. The house is home from home with everything you could possibly need from a BBQ to pancake gridle, from a pier to fish from to the most gorgeous pool and deck area. The inside has a huge TV and 2 loungers made of velour - an absolute dream for night time watching the movies. There is a great video and book collection as well as laundry facilities. The location is about 2 hours drive from Orlando which is mainly on motorway - really easy to find and Dianne could not have been more helpful to us. In the surrounding vicinity there is a bird nature reserve, a beautiful little fishing town called Tarpon Springs (lovely fish restaurants) as well as only being about 20 minutes from Tampa and Clearwater. We did very little when we were there other than marvel at the views, the sunsets and the wildlife in our own 'back yard'. We will definately be back sometime next year. It is one of those places that will be imprinted on my mind for the rest of my life. Magical...............
the place is very quiet and relaxing. Owner very friendly and available. Great pool and spa!
Thank you Dianne
This place has it all beautiful view, great house, and great amenities. We wanted a place to relax and enjoy the scenery, and this hit the spot! The owner was very helpful. All of our expectations were exceeded. We will definitely return to "A Piece of Heaven"!
We arrived here after a very busy week in Orlando with two children aged 9 and 14. Rest and relaxation was what we needed and what we got!
To begin with we were a little unsure as the villa is very personally furnished and quite quirky.However, we grew to love the place and this added to the holiday. The villa is very spacious and was clean with all amenities plus some extras! We particularly liked the hot tub and spent a lot of time in there day and evening - best place in the world to look at the most fantastic sunsets we have ever experienced!
Most days we saw dolphins and the boys spent hours fishing from the dock and swimming in the pool. Not to be missed - a trip on Todd's boat to see the wonderful un spoilt islands- good value for money and the best day out - Todd is great company.
Dianne is very friendly and made sure that everything was as we wanted. We would definitely visit again - fantastic if you like peace and tranquility.
Only gripes were that the sponge docks were a bit disappointing and the length of time it took for our deposit to be returned - over 45 days ( although this is clearly stated on the contract)
The house has a unique location with a fantastic view and a very nice pool. Taste differ but in our opinion everything was to worn-out and did not match the price we paied. There is plenty of space in the house and all equipment that is needed to live in the house for a week.
The owner is friendly and helpful when we lived in the house, but we had several dificulties getting feedback from her on our e-mails when the house was book. And when deposit should have been returned we had to call and e-mail owner several times and wait for weeks which utterly depraved our experience some.
ESPN recently filmed these waters for their fishing channel! Boat charter, Snorkeling, Sponge diving exhibitions, New Gambling boat, Golf at PGA Innisbrook Copperhead course, or choose from many local courses, Free Tennis, Jet ski rentals, Ferry to Caladesi Island, Fine dining at waterside cafes on Sponge Docks, unique gift shops, International Mall for designer clothes etc, Movie theaters, so much to do!
