While the pictures are great, they do not do justice to the spaciousness of this wonderful home. Our family of 10 - 2 daughters, their husbands, and their daughters, ages 8 & 11 and 9 & 12 - had lots of room to spread out and share conversation and fun. The kitchen was perfect for multiple cooks; the living room was great for our crowd enjoying the World Cup and all the windows provided great opportunities to enjoy the beautiful landscaping, the 12th hole of Cougar Point and our "neighbor", the alligator(s).
The owner was great about answering questions before our arrival and responding to a call while we were at his home. The location was excellent - close to the beach and close to shopping at Fresh Fields. We rented bikes from Alligator Bikes and found the bikes (and adult trike) delivered to our doorstep when we arrived.
None of our 4 granddaughters wanted to leave on Saturday. The 12-year-old said she loved "all the activities". They had fished with their dads, kayaked with their moms, played in the surf, ridden their bikes along the trails, flown kites on the beach, enjoyed the Thursday night "dive-in" at The Sanctuary, devoured meals at Chez Fish, the Oceans Clubhouse, and the Loggerhead Grille. The quiet cul-de-sac where the house is located provided a great spot for the girls to ride their bikes while they waited for the next activity.
My only reservation about the home had been its lack of a screened porch. I need not have worried. The deck was a great spot for relaxing with a drink before dinner - it was mosquito free - and had beautiful views of the natural setting, with blue heron, egrets and alligators to entertain (as well as a possible bobcat sighting).
I would definitely recommend this property.
