We had 3 glorious weeks at Cathy and Rons place. The accommodation, setting, cleanliness and outdoor space was fantastic, couldn't fault it. We went horse riding, which Cathy was good enough to book for us, kayaking, to the beach, shopping, made use of the bikes to go to the beach and ice cream shop, which was at the top of the road and was delicious. We also went out with Ron (and Bailey, their dog) on his boat which was just great. Had the best holiday to date. We will be back!
Cathy and Ron have the perfect place if you what a relaxing holiday there is everything you need and more.
The property is clean and comfortable with great outdoor space. You can sit outside with a beer and watch the boads sail past.
Ron was good enough to take my husband out with the canoes to find the manatees then let us take his small boat so we could go and find them ourselves.
Nothing is to much trouble for them if there is somewhere you want to go Cathy will look out the coupons.
Would I go again you bet.
We had a week of pure relaxation, not a care in the world- which is exactly what we were looking for in a vacation. A beautiful place with Tropical Plants galore, Boat access directly to the gulf, clean and comfortable accomodations. The owners were there for us when we needed them, and invisable when we were own our own. We had fresh caught fish on the grill, and stayed in the pool quite a bit. There is a great little breakfast place called "Rams Family" and even a "Philly Cheesesteak" right up the road. The sunsets from Sam's were awesome. These are truely good people with a fine product- we will be back!
This house is a great location on the corner of the canal. There is everything you need for an easy, enjoyable stay. Having the private swimming pool was a great way to beat the heat. The location makes for easy and quick access to the gulf, and we had an up close encounter with two dolphin while kayaking! The owners are by far the best I've every dealt with on VRBO and we use the site any time we travel. They make you feel right at home and make you feel like you are their top priority. We didn't have a boat but it would be great location if you did. We were even lucky enough to see their daughter's first gig as a singer - and it was awesome. Lean heavily on the owners' local knowledge to make your trip more enjoyable. They pointed us in the direction of Sam's waterfront restaurant and it was so good we made a return visit our last night. We are already making plans to go back! The boat rides, kayaking, fishing, cooking with fresh fish from the gulf and enjoying tropical cocktails while watching the canal fish made the relaxation time just that . . . nice and relaxing. These are the best owners we've ever dealt with on VRBO, it's worth repeating.
My review is long overdue as my wife and I stayed there in Jan.14. I can't say enough good things about this place and the gracious owners, Ron and Cathy. The accommodations were perfect for two people. Lots of space, good layout and a large bedroom with lots of closets. Sitting right on a canal with lots of privacy. We didn't use the pool due to the time of year but hopped in the hot tub a couple of times. A great spot to relax and watch nature and the boats coming and going. A wonderful organic garden in the yard which we used for fresh produce ( the tomatoes were especially tasty). The house has by far the nicest landscaping on the street thanks to Ron as this is his business. If you are looking for that tropical Florida look this house has it. Cathy was always helpful and pleasant with any requests we had and her doing the laundry was a great plus. The house is within walking distance of some good restaurants. Thanks again for the wonderful stay!
Are you looking for a clean, spacious and affordable place to vacation? This is the place for you! All you need is your clothes, toiletries, food and drinks. This place is fully furnished with everything you could possibly need. We absolutely loved having coffee in the mornings on the canal & grilling out in the evenings while seeing dolphins in the canal. There's so much to do from swimming, sitting in the hot tub, paddle boating, kayaking, fishing, bicycling, board games and just simply going out sight seeing. We loved this property! It's so close to the beach, restaurants & ice cream parlor. You could actually walk to either one of these places. Our favorite restaurant was Sam's. It's a great place to go eat, drink and watch the beautiful sunset. Cathy is exceptionally helpful with anything or any where you may want to visit. The main reason we picked this place is because Ron & Cathy allowed us to bring both of our little fur babies. We treat our dogs just like spoiled little kids & we were really admired that Cathy was willing to take care of them while we were out & about. Then other reason is because we love to fish and wanted to go salt water fishing. Ron took us out on his 22ft. deck boat where we went fishing & snorkeling. It was a great day in the Gulf. Ron & Cathy are absolutely amazing people, so go ahead and book your vacation with them. You'll love them & all the hospitality they have to give you!!!!
Thanks Ron & Cathy for everything & we truly appreciate everything you guys did for us!!!! ?
