We were one of the first to rent this house.
Glenn and Krystle were unbelievably responsive to every issue that arose. We have rented many places both in the United States and Italy over the years. We have had many responsive hosts. But no one else was as good as Glenn and Krystle. When the air conditioning had trouble, there was a repair guy out within hours. When he didn't quite get it fixed, Glen was ready to have him back in the morning, but unsatisfied with having to wait, Glen himself came over pulled it all apart and fixed the problem.
At our peak we had seven adults and a baby in the house. With 4 good bedrooms everyone was comfortably accommodated. And we in the master suite had particularly luxurious digs. This is a great place for a multigenerational family gathering.
Many Florida houses with a pool have a modest or even tiny enclosed deck around the pool. Not here. The pool deck is huge, tons of room to spread out. The photos can't quite show you how big it is, and photos of other houses seem to be a little deceptive as too how small the decks are. A pool guy slips in once a week to clean and maintain the pool. We also used the safety net around the pool to keep the 14 month old from falling in.
The living room is large with a high ceiling that gives it a feel of even more space. The kitchen is modern, large and well equipped. Unlike a lot of places, many of the basics are close at hand.
The location is a ways away from all the beaches and activity. The neighborhood is only partially built up, so there is no other house visible from the pool deck. You could feel safe sunning in the altogether, even though you are right on the canal.
The street has almost no traffic. I was able to play with the dog (who doesn't understand streets) without any fear of her running into traffic.
To close let me just repeat that Glenn and Krystle are fantastic hosts. You won't go wrong here
