Wow! What a wonderful spot - What an amazing vacation! Thank you for opening your heavenly home to us! We truly felt we had arrived at Paradise.

You went the extra mile and we noticed all of your attention to detail - everything you did to help make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Thank You! We will be back - your home, this beautiful island, is soul food.

The island is so peaceful and tropical. We felt like we were so far away from civilization. Great place to appreciate your family and what is really important.

"This is one of the beast vacations we have taken. The
island would not appeal to everyone- no "nightlife." For us,
it was perfect and we can't wait to return.

" We felt right at home due to your hospitality and this
beautiful welcoming home. What a perfect place to return to
after exploring the island every day. Wendy - your art is
superb - we enjoyed being surrounded by it. You guys have
thought of everything for your guests. This turned out to be
the perfect 50th Birthday gift for my husband, John. Thank
You!"

"As you know, this trip was my birthday present (50th)to my
wonderful husband, John. Also, it was a celebration of that
after more than 5 years on active duty in the Army - and
therefore, living apart - John is coming home and we live
together again... John said it was of our best vacations
ever - and we have vacationed all over the world. "

" As a 4th generation Floridian, I enjoyed experiencing
Florida more as I remember it from my childhood on Merritt
Island."
