This was the most charming beach cottage! With brick steps up to the screened front porch, wooden floors in the living room, and an enchanting spiraling staircase that makes you feel like you're living in one of the colorful seashells you collect on the beach- what's not to LOVE?!? The private enclosed backyard is filled with lush grass and a secret hidden garden of gargoyles awaits discovery in a nook tucked behind the backdoor. The detailed beach decor (waves cresting the matching bookcases in the dining room), old-Florida charm of a FIREPLACE in central Florida, and the ease of communicating with Isy made our vacation joyfully memorable. The Beach is directly behind the house across a busy street, but usually when we stepped onto the sidewalk the cars would stop to let us pass. The Candy Kitchen is a short walk down the sidewalk on our side of the street (YUM!), and Isy recommends good restaurants (like the Conch Republic- WOW!). Sea breezes are constantly blowing a warm and gentle breath of the ocean whirling around the house. Yeah, we loved it here. Negatives? Garbage pick up was UNBELIEVABLY loud and early (7:30a) and the beds were a little hard. The kids ADORED their special room at the tippy top of the spiral with mirror circles on the ceiling and a special tiny room for our Toddler (the large closet has a window! and he LOVED sleeping there!). Everything was accurate. It was SO clean! Beautiful! Beautiful!! BEAUTIFUL!! The pictures do NOT do it justice! Isy is succinct, helpful, personable, and prompt. I whole-heartedly recommend this property to whoever needs/wants to visit the area. We went to Tarpon Springs and Weeki Wachee . . . And THE BEACH!!!
