Beautiful home away from home!
Spacious, beautiful home in pristine condition! Our family of 9 (age ranges covering 3 generations) just completed a week's stay in this lovely home and couldn't have been happier with the experience. We had more than enough room for everyone to feel comfortable. We'd be thrilled to return and would highly recommend it to friends and family.
The house itself has a wonderful open concept feel, with soaring ceilings and walls of sliding glass doors (from the living room, family room and both master bedrooms) that open onto the georgous lanai. The kitchen has a huge island open to the family room which also allows a view of the pool and hot tub. This was a big plus for our family, since we could cook and keep an eye on the children at the same time. The house has a really smart layout, is in immaculate condition, and is warm and inviting.
The furnishings are lovely and stylish - leather couches, super sumptuous pillowtop mattresses in every bedroom, surround sound, an outdoor(!) TV and a beautiful formal dining room. The master bathrooms are incredible. We especially enjoyed the huge walk in shower with the full body jets. There were TVs in both masters and the living room - although with the free wifi and the heated pool, our children didn't spend much time in front of the TVs. The photos really don't do the house justice!
On the practical side, we appreciated having the washer/dryer, the kitchen came equipped with everything we needed, and the owners have done a great job labeling all light switches and audio equipment (thank you!) and have a binder with great info regarding the house and local attractions. We didn't lease the boat, but it sure looked like it would be fun!
As for location, the house is on a spacious lot, situated on a canal, with neighbors (although we never saw them), in a seculded subdivision. It was extremely quiet and felt very safe. We used the bicycles, allowed the children to play outdoors and took walks without any hesitation. The drive to shopping took about 10 minutes, beaches about 25 minutes. Truthfully, we spent the majority of our time playing in the pool, soaking in the hot tub and enjoying the sunshine!
The owners have done an outstanding job with this property and are exceptional hosts. For us, the house felt brand new, luxurious and sparkling clean! Ron and Linda were extremely proactive, touching base to make sure everything was in order. Thank you again for sharing your home with us!
