Family Thanksgiving 2012
Submitted: December 4, 2012
Stayed: November 2012
We were a family that required 12 sleeping spaces, with 6 grandkids, under 12 years of age...thankfully. This was a decent family holiday retreat, with several amenities for the family, but formal sleeping arrangements/beds, for more than 8 persons, were somewhat disappointing, with hide-a-beds and blow-up mattresses for the excess. Bedroom beds were somewhat less than comfortable.
A nice enough overall home, decently appointed, with many household accoutrements, including adequate pots, pans, utensils, full kitchen appliances, bath towels, pool towels, several spices, some cooking materials provided, on a replacement basis. No hot water kettle. Lower level games room fair, with combo pool table, air hockey, ping-pong, sleeping area for 3-4 (bunk bed), interesting bathroom with shower. Pool adequate, but sporadic heat control. Propane BBQ. Situated on a canal, so beach was not immediately accessible, except by vehicle and some distance. Four kayaks (included) provided great family fun, within the canal system, out to the Gulf, if you are adventurous.
Enjoyed our stay, but family time anywhere is enjoyable. Moderate cost overall. You will need a vehicle. Lots of shopping, within 15 minutes of the house, including Super Walmart, CVS, restaurants, etc. Owners very accommodating and friendly.
