Hello Barry,

Once again, my family was very impressed with your holiday home. We all had a lovely time, thank you.

We are not sure of the dates yet when we will be returning to Florida, but rest assured, when we do, it will be to one of your houses!!

Thanks again, Rhonda WV USA. 25/07/2011.

Hello Barry

Many thanks for a great holiday and agreeing to a late departure time from the villa on Sunday.

An enjoyable time was had by all, at your villa. Its location was perfect and for us, it was a "good" find on the owner’s direct web site. We did have a couple of small problems which were dealt with promptly by Brenda. These in no way lessened the good time we had. Again many thanks Garry & Jacqueline and family UK.

Hello Barry

Just a note to say thank you for the quick return of our security deposit.

May I take this opportunity, on behalf of our party, to thank you for allowing us to use your exceptional villa? We all agreed, it provided an excellent base, for what turned out to be one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had.

And thank you for your offer of the 10% returning guest discount, we hope to be able to take you up on that in the near future.

Regards, Peter Simmons UK.(10/06/11)

Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa.

Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades. Linda & Barry.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast. Which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!

Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a Sea Eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot Gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the REAL Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!

Thanks for the wonderful accommodations! It helped make our vacation a true vacation. Great weather also helped. We did not want to leave. The golfing, beaches and shopping were all in close proximity. We definitely would go back and would recommend this property to friends and family.
We did have some issues with the pool not being ready when we got there but in a few days this was corrected.
Thanks again~

Thanks Barry for allowing to stay in your beautiful home. We were so impressed with the layout and the decor. The kitchen is very impressive with everything you could ever need or want. This villa was just perfect for our large group, and it was nice that everybody had their own bathroom. The pool area is like an oasis and the kids appreciated the pool toys that are available. The location is so peaceful and tranquil, yet so close to beaches and shopping. Our plans are to come back next year and stay at Pelican Dock.

This property is a winter paradise

We liked the look of this website so much that we rented this huge space for just 2 people. It was a very wise decision. The weather was nice and warm but the property itself is absolutely amazing. From the moment we walked in the front door we were right at home and thrilled to be there. The decor is beautiful and provides a sense of tranquility. The kitchen is superbly stocked with high end dishes, cutlery and cookware.and every utensil known to man. The bedrooms are spaced out to give everyone plenty of privacy and the 2 master suites are much nicer than normal. The furniture was very comfortable and clean. Even the patio furniture was comfy and well cared for. It was a pleasant surprise compared to what we normally see in vacation rentals.
The private pool was delightful and the pool area was well maintained. The alarm system going out to the pool took a bit of getting used to as we had no children to worry about but I can see that would be useful to a young family. It rained a couple days while we were there but the overhang on the lanai is large enough that I could comfortably sit and read a book without getting wet. It was just very relaxing.
My husband did a little fishing off the dock and there was a vast array of fishing poles provided. We enjoyed watching the large turtles in the canal and the coconuts hanging in the trees by the lanai made it seem like a tropical paradise. We enjoyed the fact that the property is far enough off the beaten path to make it quiet and serene. Without all of the city lights to ruin things, we could actually sit and look at the stars at night. It was breathtaking. We can't wait to go back with our family.
We didn't go to the beach or to any of the tourist attractions. We were perfectly content to just remain in this beautiful property and enjoy all that it had to offer. It is far beyond your typical vacation rental. I'm sure that the next time we visit we will stay longer. Once you're there, you never want to leave. We can't wait to go back.

Hi Barry,
Diane and I got into the rental last evening and it is VERY nice (just as we expected from your web page). Today is due to be 82 degrees with a light breeze; last night sitting on the dock was heavenly!! It's gonna be a great 4 weeks; you have a great place here.
Be well, Tim Morrison (29/01/13)

My Dads 90th birthday party

  • Submitted: Feb 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Hi Barry,
Just wanted to say that our vacation at your property was amazing. My dad's 90th birthday could not have been celebrated in a better way. He loved coming to the house every day and spending time with us never knowing what fun filled antic's we had up our sleeves.
The size of the house worked really well for our group and once we got the hang of the pool alarm we were fine. We think your home is beautiful and is 5 star accommodations; if possible we would like to rent this property again next year.
Thank you for sharing your home and contributing to a wonderful 90th birthday!
Sincerely, Andrea Quinpe. (email address withheld) 14/08/12
