Annis Family Christmas 2012

For the first time ever our family decided to get away from the cold and snow of Canada, and retreat to the sun, sand and palms of Florida! I found this home just searching on VRBO, and decided to inquire. From the very beginning, the owner Angie and her husband Gary made the transaction easy! They were so accomodating waiting for my deposit cheque, as I sent it to the rental house and not their address by error. It was about a month from the time I booked, sent the cheque, had it return from Florida and sent it back again to the proper address.
The house is exactly as shown in the pictures. It is SO clean and well maintained. Myself, husband, 19, 14 and 12 year old children were very impressed! The pool and hot tub were well used! (As well as the washer/dryer!) Also, the private beach access was super nice. So many sharks teeth were found in a short period of time! Everything you need for a beach vacation is provided; from cooler, beach chairs, towels and even the Florida snow shovels for searching for the teeth! Angie went out of her way by providing a table top Christmas tree trimmed with seashells and even chocolate and treats waiting underneath for the kids! We arrived the evening of Dec. 23rd and it was so nice to see the tree lights shining through the living room window! The location is wonderful with lots of shopping and grocery stores near by. Many wonderful beaches within a half hour drive. We spent Christmas Day on Siesta Key beach and if you want to walk in white sand (that my 14 year old son said reminded him of icing sugar), then this is the beach to go to!
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a spacious, up to date, CLEAN vacation home! It exceeded our expectations! Thanks again, it is certainly a Christmas we will never forget!
