Paradise for a Family Vacation!!!!!
We just got back from a week of one of the best family vacations we have ever taken. As the previous reviewer already mentioned, this home was spectacular. Pictures on the website cannot capture the beauty of this home, the openness of the rooms, the magnificent views in the morning and evening, the dolphins and manatees swimming by, and the relaxed and purely peaceful place this home is! And that's coming from a Mom who spent the week with four kids, ages 8 to 17, a husband and her inlaws!!! It was pure joy. We loved that Grandma and Grandpa could have their own section of the house in the huge master suite. We loved the we could be at the other end of the house and all the rooms had spectacular views. The kids loved the TVs in the room and said they felt like they were at Disney World (which is the highest compliment from a kid). We loved the gorgeous pool, the quietness of the neighborhood, how meticulously clean the house was, all the furnishings, the wonderfully stocked kitchen as we love to cook and well...it was just perfect!!! John, the owner, was great from the moment we emailed him with our inquiry and answered all our questions and more in such a timely and friendly way! The island had tons to do and we would recommend a walk down Tigertail Beach to the end to Sanddollar Spit where we found over 100 sand dollars (whole) in a variety of sizes. Also recommend Captain Ron's waverunner tour with Avi. Fantastic and worth every penny spent! We ate at Lee Be Fish and though it looks like a hole in the wall, it's wonderful fish. Rented bikes and traversed the whole island and ate at Snook Inn one afternoon. Walked the marina and watched the fisherman gut fish (a highlight for one of our kiddos) and visited Marco Movies and had dinner at the movies which was the highlight for our 8 year old. We played tons of board games at home and swam, swam, swam. A perfect vacation for all 8 of us and as I told John, when I win the lottery, I'm buying a home just like his....in the meantime, we would recommend his to anyone and everyone. You could not find a finer property than this home. (and I looked and agonized over our decision for 2 weeks before we chose John's!) This is our first time using VRBO and I am afraid that we will forever be spoiled because I can't imagine any property being as amazing as this one. Thank you John and Janet for sharing your home with us. It was a wonderful way to start our holidays!!!
