In a word - Perfect!
My husband and I and my sister's family were lucky enough to spend the week of Thanksgiving in this lovely home. Our only criteria was a nice, clean, roomy place to relax and enjoy our holiday together. Well, we hit the jackpot because we got that and much, much more! The pictures gave us a glimpse of what to expect, but trust me, they truly don't do the home justice. It is very nicely appointed but also liveable and comfortable, which don't always go together. We instantly felt welcome and right at home!
The home is deceiving in its size - it's very spacious inside. Plus having the outdoor patio was nice to keep our snorkel and dive gear in, as well as coolers, wet shoes and what not plus the pool area for towels and toys. The owners, as posted in other reviews, had provided lots of "little things" in case we forgot (detergent, trash bags, soaps, etc.) which was very thoughtful and unexpected. And the kitchen is a dream! Even the men of the family helped cook, which is saying something for our family :)
Our days were spent lounging (under a blanket) poolside or out on the water in our dinghy that we brought with us. Oh, a word of caution if you do bring a boat: be sure to check the tide chart as the canal is very susceptible to the tides! Throughout the week we enjoyed snorkeling with the manatees, kayaking the river, taking in all the wildlife around us, and the beach just down the road. (I especially loved getting the kids away from the tv/computer all day! ) Cocktail hour was spent on the dock, fishing and just hanging out. And then back to the kitchen for more cooking! It's the kind of house that brings everyone back together no matter how long you've been apart.
What made the trip even more exceptional were the wonderful owners. We had lots of little questions and Debbie was always there, by phone or text. She insisted we call or email with anything we needed and I definitely took her up on it. I've honestly never rented from anyone more helpful or genuine before and we will defintely be back!!
