What a beautiful house with beautiful surroundings. The first evening we were there, we met some of the neighbors, who were very nice. We entered through the garage and walked past the laundry room and kitchen into the great room and were totally amazed at the view right out the window, looking down across the beautifully landscaped lawn, across the dock, and seeing the canal. The house is located on a very wide section in the canal and the view is awsome. Also, looking to the left, through the sliding glass doors was the screened in pool area, lounge chairs, and a barbeque grill tucked away in the cornor. Just off of the family room is a bedroom, which my wife and I decided to stay in, because it also had a beautiful view of the water. (The bed was very comfortable and we slept great.) After checking out the pool area, we checked out the rest of the house, and realized that there was another "wing" on the house, where the spacious master bedroom, complete with a jacuzzi tub and seperate shower was located. The master bedroom looks out over the pool area and to the canal as well. We had some friends coming to join us later in the week, and decided to allow them to stay in the master bedroom.
The living room we crossed was very nicel, with hardwood floors and also a dining area. It too, had a splended view. We almost felt bad that we didn't spend much time in the living room, but we ended up spending most of our time in the great room as we so enjoyed the view and it's comfort, and being right off the kitchen. A few of the nights we ran to Redbox (just a minute or two down the street) and rented a DVD movie and watched it on the 60" flat screen TV.
The first evening we were there, it did rain, but I had to go check out the pool. The screened in pool area was magnificant, as it kept the insects out. The pool was extremely clean and the water was very comfortable. I enjoyed swimming many times during our stay.
Because of it's great location, we spent a lot of our time out and about, checking out the area and attractions. The manager was kind enough to give us some resturant recommendations that were excellent. We always enjoyed coming back to the house, parking in the garage (to keep the sun off our vehicle) and walking into the comfort of the air conditoned house. It was also great having WiFi to keep up with email and research attractions. The house was well supplied and clean. I would definitely recommend staying here!
