Just spent over 3 weeks at Tarawitt Drive. Very comfortable. Views are amazing. Very close to restaurants and beach. We unfortunately had the polar vortex so the weather could have been better. Played tennis only 4 times. Never tried the pool. Only ate on the patio 5 times. All being said loved the stay. Maya our Samoyed loved her walks and just loved sitting on the patio taking in the wildlife and waiting for the dolphins to appear. Highly recommend for a relaxing get away. The house has everything you need.

Based on the photos alone we changed our vacation dates to take advantage of this fantastic property. It was the right move; we were completely spoiled by this home. Location is perfect, views are unrivaled. Wake to beautiful sunrises, walk to Harry's for the morning paper, enjoy your coffee as the bay comes to life. When we arrived there was a minor inconvenience with the pool. Jerry said he would have someone fix in the next day. He couldn't find anyone who was available so he came back and took care of the problem himself. A man of his word! We appreciated it Jerry! This home is extremely well stocked for all of your cooking needs but we chose to eat at Harry's, Euphemia Haye and my favorite, PattiGeorge.

ABSOLUTELY LIVES UP TO ITS NAME

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a fantastic house and relaxing vacation. The house and location were exactly as advertised and we had a wonderful time. For the most part we spent our vacation on your porch reading and enjoying the bay views. Our dog Lucy loved running on the beach in the mornings and relaxing by the pool the rest of the day. If we come back to LBK - we will definitely book your house again.

WHAT A GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible vacation! We had a great time at this incredible home, it was exactly as advertised and the views were incredible. We felt comfortable from the time we arrived to our departure. My children enjoyed the pool, fishing from the dock and the pool table. The elevator made it easy to unload and load the car. The daily boat rides and fishing trips from my own boat were outstanding, I am very thankful that you offer this property for rent as it made a truly memorable vacation for me and my family, Thanks

RELAXATION AT IT'S FINEST!

Relaxation at it's finest!

We returned to Tarawitt for the second year in a row. Nothing has changed, thankfully. We absolutely love staying here. Our 8 year old daughter refers to it as the beach-tree house because it feels as if you are up in the trees, which provides such spectacular views. We were on dolphin look-out daily. Of course they didn't disappoint showing up in the bay as always. Even though the weather was a little gray with Tropical Storm Debby approaching, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The close proximity to our favorite restaurants, Mar Vista, The Columbia, and Dry Dock, is a plus. The convenience of the beach being only a short walk is wonderful. The Mote is our daughter's favorite activity- as well as the pool at the house! Other advantages include the elevator (I have a bad back), the washer and dryer, and garage to park our car -so it was never hot when we left to go anywhere and allowed cover when raining. The only thing that would make it better would be if the upper balcony/porches were screened. However, we highly anticipate returning next summer. Thanks again for a much needed respite!
