Guestbook comments from the owner

April 7, 2014



This property was excellent and the location was perfect. It accommodates a lot of people and is perfect for multiple families because it has two washers, dryers and kitchens. The rooms are comfortable and the views are wonderful. We had a blast and 2 weeks wasn't long enough.

FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

OUR GROUP HAD A GREAT TIME AT THIS HOME. THE LOCATION ON THE CORNER OF THE INTRACOASTAL IS FABULOUS. THE CONSTANT PARADE OF BOATS GOING BY WAS AMAZING. THE BEACH AND RESTAURANTS WERE A SHORT WALK FROM THE HOME. LYNN WAS VERY HELPFUL, WE HOPE TO RETURN IN THE FUTURE.

  • 5 of 5

8 of us had a great 9 day family reunion (including beloved family members, chocolate labs bruno and bella) in the tarpon bay house.

the property is on a corner lot with great sun exposure...pool and patio on one side, and a covered chill area on the intracoastal for seating, dining, grilling, and sunsets. the yacht parade is mind blowing...be sure to plan your at-home day sunday when they all come out and flex their wealth. lots of other rentals boast waterfront, which means everyday you look out and see the same boats parked across the canal that rarely move.

their claim about seeing manatee is no b.s....we saw at least 50 in the shallow water right off the seawall, most passing by, coming up for air and leaving with a tail flip...sometimes they would gather around the barnacles and nibble off the plants growing there...contrary to popular belief they seem pretty strong, fast and agile although many bear the scars of boat propellers on their backs.

the house is almost a throwback museum from the 60's and has a lot of character, so if you're the picky type looking for high-end everything it's probably not for you. we're a bunch of cool breezes so it was a great home base for all the things to do real close in FtL. just so you know, it's really 2 full houses stuck together with no inside access, they both do open up to the 2 sides on the water and have 3 beds 2 baths each. it worked great for us, we put the young ones on one side, and us old farts on the other.

best of all, dealing with lynn smith was great, always cheerful, available and accommodating.

Paradise found !!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for paradise and found it here in this amazing home. The views of the intercoastal were refreshing and the nights were so memorable, with its combination of the sea and the city lights bringing an abundance of tranquility to us all. The home was specious, we are a family of 10 and there was plenty of room to relax individually. This bit of paradise will be misssed but we all look forward to returning very soon.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of eleven, six adult and five children stayed ten days in this house. We used it as a base for visiting attractions in Southern Florida like Everglades. Key west and Kennedy Space Center. The house itself is worn but well kept and functions perfect. The pool was fine and especially appriciated by the children. A fine beach is within walking distance. We, comming from a Scandinavian country, spent all awake time outside on the terrace and enjoyed the weather, the beauty of the waterway and the lively traffic on the waterway. Interior rooms are fine though, nice beds and sitting room furniture. Kitchens are a bit old but functions. Needs, when mentioned were fulfilled ASAP. Shopping facillities were easy at hand nearby.

We would sertainly like to come back.
