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.
