Great Home for a Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've rented this house. It's lovely, very comfortable, well laid-out and has many amenities. It's a great location, a short walk across the street to a nice beach, and you can easily walk or drive to a lot of good restaurants. The owner is wonderful and every rental has gone smoothly. I only wish we could rent it more often.

The house and property were fantastic! This was our second visit.

  • 5 of 5

Except for the lousy weather (we brought rain from the north, rain FL hadn't seen for months until we got there) the stay was very nice. The owner had every thing you would need. Lots of wonderful places to eat at very reasonable prices. They have everything you need for the beach, including a cart. We would most definitely highly recommend it.

This is our fourth year staying at this lovely home - and another fabulous Florida vacation. We LOVE this house! It's perfect for our family. It has everything we need. Last year our kids and grandkids joined us. They had so much fun on the beach which is very accessible. They also played in the sand in the backyard while we grilled out our dinner! We took them on the pirate ship at John's Pass. The crew on the ship totally entertained the kids. This year our very good friends joined us. We enjoyed going for walks on the beach. We joined some of the neighbors to watch the fabulous sunsets. We have not visited a restaurant or bar that isn't great - most have outdoor seating which is a bonus coming from the Midwest in the winter! We are very lucky to have found this great beach home for our stay in Florida!

Wonderful home with abundant amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your immaculate beach house! There were more than enough amenities for us to have an awesome vacation! The kitchen was well stocked, so we cooked dinner at the house every night. The foosball table was a hit with every member of our family, and the GameCube was great when we needed a break from the strong Florida sun. We loved the short walk to the park and to the beach, and the close proximity to Publix, mini golf and St. John's Pass was great! Thank you so much for thinking of everything that our family could want to do at the beach (the cart was super-helpful) and around the quiet neighborhood (we found running in the morning to be an invigorating activity). We truly experienced home away from home in your comfortable beach house!

Cute, clean and so close to everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our 4 kids (3 teens and a 3 yr old) plus MIL. We couldn't have asked for a better set-up. Great kitchen layout, enough bathrooms, looved the extras like umbrella stroller, beach toys/chairs, suggestions on where to eat. Funny thing was it rained for the entire week straight (as in streets flooding, more than normal for Florida) and we still had enough room to not cause cabin fever. Bought the City Pass and everything was close enough that we would have visited every location (except Busch Gardens closed on the day we had scheduled). Would definitely recommend this to family and friends. MIL enjoyed it so much we think she might take other family there in the next year or so. Hope we can return soon! Thanks for making our vacation wonderful!
