Guestbook comments from the manager
We spent the most wonderful weekend in your home last week. We all soaked up the art and discussed it all week. We agreed that it inspired and moved us. It is such a wonderful family reunion home and we thank you for sharing it with us! I loved the one on the landing between the stairs that has the written words on the white frame and the one that says "Done" next to the kitchen counter. They are all so vivid in my mind and felt like they were characters sharing our vacation with us.

We love the beach and we love vacationing with friends. So in 1995, we designed a home that would accommodate our family and friends. Laguna Key is the perfect place for family and friends to gather. The living area, den, kitchen, and dining are situated on the second level which provides magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Uncrowded pristine beaches, the wildlife preserve, Little Lagoon and space for a leisurely walk or bike ride, make our home the perfect getaway. A neighborhood pool and tennis court provide alternatives to the beach. Great fishing from the pier on Little Lagoon. Get in tune with nature in the National Wildlife Preserve.

What you see on the VRBO website is what you get.....and that's good. Although there were just the three of us , with one of us being our Scotty dog, the house was cozy and comfortable. The beach was just perfect....clean and private. And one of the best features was the rental agent, Margaret. She was always accessible and most helpful. We will return to this home.

WOULD RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION!

We had a wonderful stay. The house was perfect for 11 people and 1 dog. It was clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. Our favorite thing was the beautiful beach and "being away from the action." At times, we had the beach all to ourselves. The house provided all the amenities we needed.

This property - your home - was very accommodating for our family (and 2 friends of grandchildren) of fifteen. We found the kitchen to be well equipped for most any type of cooking. The home was surfaced clean, but, well maintained and we realized that we were probably at the end of the rental season. The view of the beach area from the home was excellent
The bedroom with the two bunk beds was much smaller than the photo provided. We felt very at home with the lovely decorating and many paintings to enjoy. We could all be together, but space was provided for some "alone time" if needed. Access to the beach , as well as the pool, was excellent. Because of college and work schedules, it is not possible to plan this early, but I do know I would check the availability of this property first when we can plan another family vacation. I have already spoken highly to friends, and the photos of our vacation tells how much we hated to see our time end. A great place for family photos, using all the back decks. The only negative I have of our vacation at your home is the day we left. Wonderful memories came home with us, including the baptism of our great-grandson, and at 80 years of age, I, and 8 others went parasailing. We also took advantage of :"Hanging Out"., especially great for kids, and Desoto's for dinner. Could not fit in "Bahama Bob's" that was recommended. Next time!

What a great place to get away, especially with a group of good friends.The spacious home is lovely and there are no words to describe the serenity of the beach. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, and plan to visit again myself!

This home is by far the jewel of the Gulf. Aside from the tastefully decorated interior and comfortable living area, the panoramic views of the beach from the multiple decks were beautiful. The beach is pristine and quite private since it is a gated community away from the crowd. The pool and tennis court offered a change of pace, and it was an easy stroll to the pier on Little Lagoon, which borders the National Wildlife Refuge (a great place for a canoe or light fishing). After a day at the beach, it was a treat to relax in the upstairs hottub under the stars. We look forward to coming back to this "little slice of heaven"!

The perfect Gulf Coast experience! This is a beautifully appointed home, lovely decks and views, and a laid back atmosphere. The beaches at this end aren't crowded, but there is easy access to inland entertainment as well. We have great memories...
