This was the perfect vacation for two "young" grandmothers to bring their 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren for a week. The beach felt almost private,with "acres" of soft white sand around us. We were even privileged to see dolphins playing close to shore and streams of manta-rays! The pool was fabulous and David was great! We hopped the free trolley to ride to the peer and watch shark fishing, went to the Mote Aquarium (half hour ride) and enjoyed sweet shops. We are so thrilled with our entire experience.
We were two families who shared the house. We liked the house since it was well equipped, had a nice pool, quiet area and was close to the sea. The kids loved it and thought it was the best part of Florida!
This is the second time we have stayed at this wonderful house just steps away from one of the best beaches in Florida.
Well looked after always clean and tidy. The large swimming pool is just perfect for pool party's and BBQ on the patio. Everything is there to a high quality all kitchen equipment right down to the BBQ ready to light up. Publix store is very close like so many other shops/cafes. The perfect place to chill we have stayed with as many as 6 in our party and plenty of room in the house, Wi-Fi works great. The owner is a perfect gentleman to deal with we will be returning next time for a extra long vacation. The house the beach the pool excellent.
The home had a lot of room for us. We had plenty of parking, we were the first ones to arrive ,so we got the garage, which was very nice. We loved the porches, we gathered a lot on them. Their were a few things that needed to be fixed, that we let David know about, and I'm sure he will fix them. We loved the short walk to the beach, no streets to cross. I would rent this home again. Made some great memories.
Do not even think about renting this place or you will regret it! I don't even know where to begin. First of all, we would never have rented this place to begin with except for the fact that it is advertised to come with an optional boat slip. This was discussed with David three to four months in advance, before we even considered putting down a deposit, & we were told it would be available & was included in the rental fee. The week we were supposed to arrive, we were told it was already occupied but we could use the public boat ramp in town. That was not at all what we bargained for, but obviously it was too late to rent anywhere else, so we requested a partial refund or to have him rent us a slip at the marina & he told us we could have $70 back of the total rental fee when it would cost at least $200-$300 to get a slip at a marina. Very frustrating! Upon our arrival on Saturday we found all the trash & recycle bins filled to the top with beer & liquor bottles from the previous renters. The house could use a serious upgrade & remodel, as everything is quite outdated. There was masking tape around the remote control holding it together. He sends you an email once you have paid in full that details all your job duties for the week. You are to be the pool service, having to take the creeper in & out every morning & night & put another piece of equipment in when you take that out. There are detailed garbage instructions, bathroom instructions, laundry instructions, even specifics on where to keep each set of colored towels & washcloths! And make sure to do it exactly as listed or you will get charged for it! There was mold on the window sills in the bathrooms, likely due to insufficient ventilation. After our second night there, the house would not cool below 80 degrees & my son could not quit coughing, so my husband & father-in-law checked the air vent & it was FULL of dust & mold!We took pictures to document. They had to take it apart & clean it so we could make it through the rest of the week. The grill was in pieces & did not work for us to grill out during the week.When we tried to contact him when we were there to discuss some of this he did not respond & took 2-3 days of texting, emailing & calling to finally get a response.But he was the first one to call on the day we were leaving to make sure we'd be out of the house on time.Total bait & switch & we were obviously very disappointed.Don't do it!There are plenty of other places for a better deal
Great Location...right at end of street with a path right to gorgeous beach. Beach was not crowded and very clean. Owner has a well stocked unit from the kitchen to pool and beach supplies. I really like then ambiance of the island, very non-commercial with and abundance of nice restaurants, many of them just a short walk away. Very nice private pool area, well heated, were you could enjoy sun or shade. It would be great for large group since there are two units side by side. Definitely would come back again. Thanks again!!
