amazing, amazing, amazing...............

  • 5 of 5

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...............

Perfect view - special atmosphere

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Jesper. It was very nice meeting you and your family at A Piece of heaven, if there may have been a language barrier it's possible with you from Denmark and me being an Aussie, however, the children all spoke perfect English, and you and the wife indicated were very pleased with the home/pool etc. As we were unable to get any private banking details from you, we had no alternative but to mail you a cheque, long way to go but we can't be responsible for the US mail delivery, however you did send an email when you received as I had requested. Thank you again and hopefully you will come back and enjoy UTOPIA! Best Wishes, Dianne

A Piece of Rundown Real Estate!

  • 1 of 5

To say we were disappointed with this property is an understatement - we stayed less than 24 hours and had to leave. It was dirty, run down and broken! Bird droppings all over the deck, a kitchen that hadn't been cleaned properly, cupboards full of "stuff", bed very uncomfortable (very old mattress?!), broken cupboard doors, poor (unsafe?) electrical wiring. This property needs a major overhaul, particularly to justify the high price that is charged. Even when complaining, no offer of compensation and communication from the owner non existent. We wouldn't recommend this property at all.

BIRTHDAY GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5

The view from the deck is serene and beautiful, we spent every night just watching the calm of the ocean, and the mornings spotting stingrays and crabs. It's within a nice driving distance of Seaworld as we spent one day there. It was my mom's first time seeing the ocean. It was also a 60th birthday present for my dad and we also celebrated my daughter's first birthday that week as well- we made a lot of wonderful memories.

Kids Favorite place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice clean home with huge Pool! Very peaceful to sit on the dock or by the pool of an evening and watch the sunset. Good place for family time with a big heated pool and ocean view all to yourself. We saw all kinds of marine life from dolphins,stingray, shark and small crabs. Close to Busch Gardens, Restaurants, Grocery store,and shopping. We were only away from the place 1 day to go to Busch Gardens.

SIMPLY FANTASTIC !

  • 5 of 5

What can be said that hasn't already been said! it's even better than the advertisement, we had such a wonderful time, lap pool is just awesome, dock and fishing lots of fun, boat trip to island a must!

the location's un interrupted views of the Gulf of Mexico, no neighbours, lots of exotic birds, we saw dolphins swim by the dock,

total privacy. Close to grocery etc. The home is exceptional, we really felt special in

the surroundings, we will be back of course, by the way, if your considering a visit don't delay it's worth every cent!
