We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a great time! An electrician came the first day for 6 hours but after that we were alone and enjoyed all aspects of the house. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed as far as cooking utensils.There was a washer and dryer that made being there a week easy. The pool was great but the ducks really didnt like sharing. The beach was very close and there was everything literally right around the corner!! We really enjoyed the hot tub. Christa, the owner, was so sweet and very easy to work with and I would love to go back and stay there again.

Owner's Response: This was not the first "honeymoon" couple.... the house and backyard setting is very private and shielded from neighbors ,so therefor it really makes a wonderful "honeymoon suite"... PS: the electrician was there because the couple had cancelled first ( that's when I called for the electrician) but then they decided to come. With their permission I did keep the electrician on appointment which was a good thing, because we discoverd an additional item that needed attention....I am avoiding any repairs ( large or small) during times when my guests are in. Thank you for understanding.

House was nicely decorated, beds were comfortable. It was marginally clean upon arrival. Enjoyed the tranquility of the canal, steps leading down to it were steep and challenging for us. Enjoyed hot tub. Pool too cool to enjoy due to daily adding of cold water from outside hose due to a water leak of some kind. Lanai furniture was very comfortable.

Ants and palmetto bugs indoors constantly needed attending to via spraying at least every other day. Minimal lighting inside this home.

Hidden oasis

We loved our stay. The property is quiet and very private. The landscape is “old” Floridia. The property owners are responsive and very personable. We are looking forward to coming back.

This was our second year staying at this darling place. Love it!

Improvements since last year include new sofas, televisions and a dish washer. Love them all. The pool and spa tub are big pluses. This is a great place to chill between beach, restaurant and bar runs.

Nice area

  • 4 of 5

I gave this 4 stars because the beach/ ocean was quite a ways away. The "beach" that is located 1 mile away isn't an actual beach. It's a harbor with a small sandy area. The pool was great and Jack kept it clean daily. We were a bit disappointed because we didn't have any luck catching anything in the canal out back but there were plenty of fresh seafood markets with a huge variety of fish that we shopped at almost daily. The home was spacious and clean, and very close to all of your shopping needs. We enjoyed our 10 day stay!

What a pretty and comfortable house!

We enjoyed it very much. Clean, well furnished, and had all we needed. Jack kept the beautiful pool clean. We loved the green trees and tropical plants behind the house. A charming place. Sure beats any hotel!
