A TOTALLY HONEST REVIEW

Reviews like this are basically worthless unless they are written with complete honesty and sincerity... a truthful balance of the positive and the negative.
With that premise in mind I have given this review a lot of careful thought and try as I might, I can't find a single negative comment to make about this house.
I think I must begin with a sincere fanfare of appreciation for the management company / cleaner who, as I understand it look after the property as the owner lives out of state.
When we arrived, tired after a 16 hour drive, the house was cool, immaculately clean and everything smelled fresh. A quick look through the closets and kitchen cupboards revealed a more than an ample supply of beach, pool and bath towells, clean spare sheets and absolutely everything you would need in a kitchen to cook a quick snack, breakfast or a gourmet supper.
The pool was chrystal clear, the fishing dock and patio areas spotless and although we had taken our own fishing gear there were even several rods and a tackle box.
We know the area very well, but if you don't , the location of the property is perfect..really.. a two minute walk from the beach where you can hire a canopy and two beach beds for $10 a day.
There are bait shops and a Publix grocery store a five minute drive away as well as a plethora of small independant restaurants.. some within a short walking distance of the house.
We were a very diverse family in terms of age range, a five year old, a teenager, a couple in their 30 s and of course us, the 50 something grandparents and naturally our holiday needs were as diverse as our years.
So, when the kids went off to play crazy golf just down the road, my husband and I sat on the dock, a sundowner in our hands, reeling in more catfish than we could shake a stick at and occasionally cooling off in the pool. Heaven.
I know, before we booked this house, we paid very careful attention to all the reviews, but until you see it for yourself it is difficult to judge whether other people's expectations are the same as ones own.
All I can say is this property was more than we expected...much more. It's not flashy, it's not glitzy but it is beautiful in a priviledged location and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to others.
We have taken away some wonderful memories from it which will stay with us all our lives....I hope you will too.
