This was our first experience using VRBO. The owners were able to answer all of my questions prior to booking and kept in touch as needed. They also responded quickly when we had a question upon arrival. The place was neat and clean and there was ample room for 5 of us. There is a very nice view from the main bedroom and the living room(which is larger than it appears) which has a small balcony and 2 chairs overlooking the pool and river. We were very pleased to have a washer and dryer in the unit, as well as many misc items for our use from dish washing liquid and detergent, to mayonnaise, ketchup, salt, pepper, and lighter fluid for the charcoal grill. We were treated well by other full time residents as well as those on extended vacations offering us tips on the area. We enjoyed using the pool, swimming the canal (across from the pool, where there is a park and swimming area and boat docks). We spent one day scalloping with gulf coast expeditions, highly recommended! There was plenty of cookware, dishware, and utensils for our needs to prepare our scallop dinner (or a big breakfast) as well as a toaster and coffee maker for a quick breakfast. We had kayaks and paddle boards delivered to us for the day and went to three sisters spring on them. It's beautiful, and it was a good work out for us, but not too difficult. We went out again to explore different areas and enjoyed it all. We hope to return again another time!
