Just like a Tropical Paradise....

Thank-you for sharing your wonderful home. My husband and I met up with our daughter, son-in-law, and two little grandsons from Chicago for a memorable Christmas week! The pictures are exactly what the house looks like...beautiful. The location provided much solitude even though there is a very close neighbor. The tall shrubs planted between the homes allowed us great privacy in the pool area. The pool and spa were a highlight and used a lot. My husband spent a lot of time on the dock, fishing. He was able to catch (and release) quite a variety of fish including Oscar, Pinfish, Sheep'shead, Bluegill, and Alligator Gar. Of course there were also both saltwater and freshwater turtles who couldn't resist the bait and a young 4-5 ft. alligator. My daughter and I enjoyed our early morning times watching the "amazing sunrises".
The inside of the home was not only lovely but well equipped. We enjoyed the kitchen and living room area which is adjacent to the lanai where everyone could be together comfortably. Yet the layout of the house also provided many spaces for being alone.
After visiting several of the beaches we all voted on Boca Grande as our favorite.It was about a 20 min. drive. We had unbelievable weather with no rain and 80's almost every day which enhanced the experience tremendously.
The "noseeum bugs" which were mentioned by the owner were vicious little guys and I ended up being their main target. Next time I definitely will use Deet spray! However even all our bites couldn't deter our experience. We're already dreaming about our next visit. Thanks again for allowing us to make wonderful Christmas memories.

If you are looking for peace and quiet as well as a little bit of paradise for your vacation getaway, then I would highly recommend this gorgeous home. The minute we walked in and saw the spacious rooms and the outdoor pool was enough to win us over. The view from the screened in lanai with the towering palm trees, pretty foliage,and the canal with the fish jumping in it was so amazing! There are plenty of great places to eat at by just taking a short drive into some of the surrounding towns. What we loved especially were the restaurants that were by the ocean and we were content to sit and look at the waves rolling in and the seagulls walking and looking for food. If you are tired of the tourist traps and ready to slow down and enjoy a relaxing vacation this is the place to visit. We also had plenty to keep us occupied since we decided to go shopping and sightseeing. Traveling to Boca Grande which was only 6 miles away to walk on the beach was so much fun too. We saw nine stingrays swimming by the shore, some crabs, and a dolphin that morning. It was so peaceful. Thanks for sharing your home. Can not wait to come back next year with our group!
