FIRST RENTAL HOME EXPERIENCE
Submitted: November 3, 2009
Stayed: September 2009
My husband and I wanted to take our two little dogs with us on vacation, we would hate to leave them in a Kennel. We had never rented a home and didn't know what to expect.
This house was PERFECT. So much better than a hotel and we could leave the dogs while we were out without worrying!!!
The price was great, the neighborhood was great, and the house was beautiful!!! It's exactly as described.
There are plenty of stores and restaruants within a 5 minute drive.
Pine Island Beach is worth going to. I think it took about 10 minutes to get there. If you are there during peak season I suggest getting there early as the parking lot holds maybe 100 cars. Parking is only 2 dollars and there is a nice little snack shack that serves smoothies, sandwiches, fries, etc. and a good size playground for the little ones! Both days we went we saw dolphins playing around off shore! It's a very quiet beach. There are no shops, jet ski rentals, arcades or big waves (great for babies and younger kids)....it's a nice place to relax and enjoy the Florida sun!
Kayaking down Weeki Wachee is another must do! It took us about 2 1/2 hours but it was worth it. It's a nice quiet, peaceful, ride down the spring. We stopped about half way down and watched a family of manatee eating some plants close to shore!
If you are looking for a nice, quiet getaway this is the place for you. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The owners are wonderful, very helpful, and easy to get in touch with if there is a question or a problem.
We would love to be able to stay here again someday!
