Great Family Vacation!

I have to admit, I skeptical, as this was my first experience using VRBO; however, from the initial email to the owner about renting this unit, until our vacation was over, they were nothing but prompt, polite, and made our vacation very relaxing and easy to enjoy.
As for the unit itself, the linens were all fresh, clean, and new. The decorations were modern and fresh, which is to say, no wicker furniture! There were plenty of paper towels, soap, toilet paper, as well as sugar, spices, etc... As for sleeping, the beds were very comfortable and there was ample room to move around, while each of us had our own space.
The grounds very very, very beautiful, as the unit looks out to a thick and lush tropical rain forest setting, where one of the two pools is nestled in. There was a big and private fishing pier, which we pretty much had to ourselves, as we fished, saw dolphins each morning, and even a two manatees!
With a short walk, we were on the beautiful and pristine beach of Siesta Key Beach! All I can say is, "WOW"!! I have been to many a beach in my travels throughout the World and all I can say is, I have never seen a more pristine beach, which does not get hot? Apparently this beach is made of 99% quartz and reflects the heat, which is great, as we had little ones with us and it was nice not to have to run like hell to the water!
There were plenty of restaurants, shops, and eateries on the barrier island, but far enough away where you had no noise or foot traffic, which lent itself to this being one of our most relaxing vacations!
Thank you again to the owner and his staff. We would recommend this to family and friends and look forward to making it back there some day.
