GREAT place to stay!
This rental was a nice place for five of us to stay. It is close to everything. Our favorite thing to do was kayaking on the river.
Relaxed and swam with a manatee
We really enjoyed our couple nights and the house. Used the kayaks a couple of times and swam with a manatee right past the bridge. Hope to come back again sometime!! Also loved the screened in porch.
Great Mini Break
