Very lovely home.

This is a great home in a great setting. It is beautifully decorated (They've made some changes since these photos were taken--it is much lovelier in person!) and you can see the outdoor foliage from every window in the house. It stayed cool in the 80+ degree heat due to 2 thermostats (one upstairs, one downstairs) and all the shade that the large trees provide.
The ground floor is big and open--kitchen, dining room, living room, bar area with pool table, sitting area, full bath and a separate laundry room with storage. I love how you can see the outdoor grill on the front deck from the kitchen.
The upstairs consists of 4 HUGE bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have French doors that open to the upper deck where there are plenty of places to sit, or you can just stand against the railing and watch the birds in the trees. The 2 front-facing bedrooms have window seats. All 4 bedrooms and both upstairs bathrooms have 3-speed ceiling fans with lights!
All 3 of the bathrooms (2 upstairs, 1 downstairs) have double-bowl sinks and a separate room with toilet and shower.
They provide plenty of dishes, bowls, mugs, utensils, knives, cookware, sugar, salt & pepper, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, towels (tons and tons of fresh, clean towels!), hand soap, body wash and blankets. Bring your own Kleenex, extra TP, hairdryer, iPod dock, coffee (+ regular-size basket filters), matches for the fireplace, and, of course, food.
Other items provided: flower vases, games, cards, videos, books, magazines, grill utensils, scissors, scratch paper, and some firewood. This house is stunning in its detail. Lots of lovely finishing touches throughout!
The wireless internet connection worked all throughout the house. There is one TV (located in the living room). It gets all of the major networks and some cable stations (ESPN, TLC, etc.). There is also a combo VCR/DVD player.
The pet-free, smoke-free environment helps keep this property clean and beautiful.
The house is private, peaceful and quiet. No one bothered us and we didn't have any problems with anything. Everything is extremely well-organized and the owners were very thorough with instructions and helpful hints, and made themselves available through email, home phone and cell phones. They are very cordial and always there if you need them, yet they're also respectful of your privacy.
The gated community is beautiful and quiet. I highly recommend this property and plan to return as often as we can!
Owner's Response: Wow Laura - thank you so much for the kind words...I want to stay here - hah! Great suggestion about adding an iPod docking station - I'll plan on doing that soon (ya gotta have your own music). Sorry you didn't find the extra TP we had stored in the downstairs bathroom vanity or upstairs closet.
Please plan on staying with us again - you and your husband were model guests!
