Our family stayed at this luxurious home for a Holiday Weekend. The home is both immaculate and charming. The owners Barbara and Paul were absolutely charming and made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. The 6 bedrooms were all very large with extremely comfortable beds. Each bedroom had a unique bed frame and furniture. Every room in the house was decorated to perfection with many little touches that truly made the house a one of a kind. The kitchen was was equipped with every amenity you can imagine making it perfect for a family celebration. It was fully equipped with a built in wine cooler, two large refrigerators plus two large refrigerator drawers, top of the line professional appliances and a very large countertop which is perfect for preparing food and entertaining. The butlers pantry is amazing with the tin ceilings! The gardens and sunsets are breath taking! The property is stunning. The large wrap around Victorian porch was great for entertaining and fit a lot of people. We were right on the water overlooking the Thimble Islands. The glass sunporch had fabulous views and was absolutely charming. We have rented many homes before and this house is truly a one of a kind home. We would highly recommend this home to anyone! It's a great home for bringing families together. Our family had a blast!
