Winter in the South

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with this rental which has been completely remodeled inside. Owners are very pleasant and try to meet all your requests. Neighbors are also very friendly.

You have the option of a swim in the pool or a ride on the pontoon with the gulf only a short distance away. There is also a private, white sand beach on the gulf which also is only a short drive or walk away.

We were there for 2 months and found good restaurants and activities for adults as well as children within a short distance. (Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Tampa, Bush Gardens, Weeki Wachee and spring training near by, etc.)

WINTER VACATION

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience was great. The home was clean, and updated. There was all the amenities to make the house feel like home. I would high recommend this house to people who would like a quiet area and close to supermarkets, restaurants just everything you need. We would rent again on our next trip. Thanks Kevin for everything.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I rent twice a year when I travel to the states in Gulf Harbors because my family all live within 30 minutes. The house was perfect for my winter trip and had all of the conveniences for an enjoyable stay. In the summer, I prefer to rent a home with a pool. Surprisingly, the canoe was bigger than expected and was lots of fun to troll around the canal. My nephew had a particularly good fishing experience catching 6 different species of fish one afternoon. The beds were also very comfortable and I made use of the computer for dining options. It was also good to see Mickey, the property manager who I've had the pleasure of renting from before. I will certainly consider this home again in the future. Thanks Kevin for a wonderful vacation home.

Cute little cottage by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this well appointed home on the Gulf of Mexico. I formally lived and worked as realtor in this neighborhood, many of the homes have been remodeled, (and not well!) Kevin the owner has done an excellent job, top of the line everything! Beautiful granite with stainless steel appliances in kitchen , gorgeous bathrooms, lovely tiled floor thru out. We enjoyed playing pool, used it every night. My daughter is disabled and in a wheel chair, we had no problems maneuvering her around. We do own a small ramp that we used at the front door. I highly recommend this home, Kevin is very accommodating, we had a fantastic time, no complaints at all, only praises.

Relaxed vacation, so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a relaxing vacation, and this vacation home provided exactly that for us, and more. It was much better than a hotel, and provided us with more space than a hotel suite does. The house is nicely furnished; master bed is so beautiful and comfortable. We loved having the convenience of all the appliance and amenities. The two bathrooms are so well remodeled we feel like staying at a five star hotel! We used the private beach, but we really enjoyed Honeymoon Island several times as it was only a short drive away. The owner was very prompt, and having onsite manager Mickey is more than helpful. Very happy experience.
