We love this property, quite and private, but close to all the amenities.
The home is just that a home you walk in and your home. Comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful sunrises and gorgeous sunsets, if you like quite private and beautiful this is your place. The owners are really wonderful people as well. They have a property care taker that is also available with just a phone call. I can assure all you will enjoy your stay if we don't get there first.

Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Sitting in the hot tub and watching the sunset was amazing. There is not enough words to express how we loved the house and property.
The very best
This was everything and more than we expected. Just sorry we had to go.
Thank you for leaving the home in such wonderful condition.
We will miss you too !! See you next year. Stay warm the next few days and enjoy your summer..
Had the opportunity to visit friends staying here. The setting was perfect...we enjoyed the natural surroundings. The comfortable house was perfect for meeting up with old friends, in the area, for luncheons on the lanai.
