Of all of our rentals over the past 4 years, this one was the best. It is a spacious, well-decorated home with all the conveniences as advertised. Although the dining room table was nice, we ate most of our meals on the lanai by the pool. At breakfast we were joined by singing birds and a wading heron fishing along the banks of the river. At lunch the geckos were climbing on the outside of the screened in enclosure, as they did when we swam or floated in the marvelous pool, always a comfortable 90 degrees. And at supper the setting sun lit up the sky with brilliant colors. We did see a gator floating down the lazy river 3 different times, but never closer. The master bedroom was very comfortable with a convenient walk in shower and dual sinks. The TV room provided evening entertainment and relaxing sitting in the reclining couches. Golf at the local courses was fun and affordable. Nearby beaches were easy to get to without a ton of traffic and we especially loved the beaches on Gasparilla Island and hiking through Stump Pass State Park on Manasota Island. The area is quiet and peaceful with ocean breezes soothing the heat of the sun. Sunsets are spectacular whether from a beach or the deck of one of many restaurants in the area with fantastic seafood. The owners and management company kept the rental process friendly and helped with information on things to see and do. We enjoyed our 5 week stay immensely at this location.
