A few recent Guest Comments:
Once again, my family was very impressed with your holiday home. We all had a lovely time, thank you.
We are not sure of the dates yet when we will be returning to Florida, but rest assured, when we do, it will be to one of your houses!!
Thanks again, Rhonda WV USA. 25/07/2011.
Many thanks for a great holiday and agreeing to a late departure time from the villa on Sunday.
An enjoyable time was had by all, at your villa. Its location was perfect and for us, it was a "good" find on the owner’s direct web site. We did have a couple of small problems which were dealt with promptly by Brenda. These in no way lessened the good time we had. Again many thanks Garry & Jacqueline and family UK.
Just a note to say thank you for the quick return of our security deposit.
May I take this opportunity, on behalf of our party, to thank you for allowing us to use your exceptional villa? We all agreed, it provided an excellent base, for what turned out to be one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had.
And thank you for your offer of the 10% returning guest discount, we hope to be able to take you up on that in the near future.

Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa.
Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades. Linda & Barry.
When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast. Which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!
Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a Sea Eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot Gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the REAL Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!
