What a wonderful experience.
We were so delighted to find the house exactly as pictured with it's tiki decor and beautiful kitchen. The house was sparkling clean and bright. We shelled, we surfed, we swam and had a wonderful New Year's Eve on the beach. I would highly recommend this island experience for anyone with children. Safe, quiet and the beach is wonderful !
We saw dolphins from the beach and collected more shells than we could take home with us. This would also be an excellent choice for couples looking for a romantic and stress free environment. Long walks, beautiful sunsets...just a great great place...we will be back !

Summer Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home was excellent. Our family of six had a wonderful time exploring the island and just relaxing. The home had everything we needed from a well supplied kitchen to enough towels for all of us. We really enjoyed laying in the hammocks with a good book or taking the short walk to the beach to look for shark teeth. Edgar was easy to work with and took care of any need we had. Thank you so much and we look forward to our next visit.

The description of the house is spot on. You get what you've read. Edgar and Lourdes have thought of everything to include in their overview. Even after reading about the amenities, we were still surprised by the stock!

Relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing stay on LGI and we highly recommend it as a real getaway to enjoy Florida without the crowds of the mainland beaches. The house is very clean and comfortable. The hammocks on the screened-in porch were a hit with our family. The weather was cooler than normal, but we got in some great beach time-- the shelling is fabulous and we brought a kite to enjoy the windy weather. We also took the canoe out a couple of times and saw dolphins just a few feet away from us.

The only drawback on the house (from my husband's point of view ;)) was the lack of wi-fi. But, without it, I think we had a more relaxing vacation. The house has satellite TV and a whole range of movies, plus kids games, etc. Even though it was cold, we spent most of the time outside and there was never a dull moment. We came home truly refreshed and looking forward to going back again. We highly recommend LGI and Edgar and Lourdes' getaway!

Perfect Location on LGI and great for families!

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay at LGI, the owners have really made this house the perfect vacation home, the decorations (inside and out) are fantastic and we loved the location, close to the dock for our boat and the great views and the walk to the beach was close as well. Everyone slept very comfortably and really enjoyed the great kitchen...so fully stocked with all the pans etc we needed for our group of 8. My 4 year old son and 12 year old nephew called this vacation the best ever and loved lying in the hammocks! We enjoyed riding bikes around the island and make sure to rent a golf cart, its a great and fun way to get around and see the Island:) Thanks for a perfect house and a great getaway!

New Year full of fun!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was fantastic!. We had no issues with the place or owner, in fact the owner is accomodating, friendly and has a great sense of humor. The neighbors were all great and made you feel at home. Respect people and they will respect you (in other words, just be good tenants). The kayaks and bikes were a great addition that our children enjoyed tremendously (sinking the canoe was funny as well..lol). The island is always a great get away, but this house was tops with its surfer family style. Edgar thanks for thinking of us when you put up the hammocks! Oh, there is a new phone number for the golf cart rental place, you'll have to ask Willie the fabulous water taxi master. Thanks again. We look forward to staying in your home again. This was a wonderful beginning to the new year. Thanks for the quick return of the deposit. Loni & Dan
