About Mitch

Sue and Mitch . We just love Florida and this home is ideally located on the water close to everything. Boating is our lifestyle and Mitch 'our Captain' does a fantastic job showing guests on our motor yacht the sights that you cannot see by land. Having his Captains license will assure that you will have a very safe cruise and in good hands.

Mitch purchased this House in 2007

Why Mitch chose Downtown

Our home is located right off the New River on a large lot with waterfront both in front and back for privacy. Waterfront is the most important thing in having the right vacation rental and ours is ideally located close to major highways, beaches, downtown, airport, convention center and the cruise port and easy access to all amenities.

                                                                    Kelly M.

                                                                    We stayed here for a Bachelorette Party with 15 girls. It was perfect! There was room for everyone to sleep and the pool was awesome as well! The house had a ton of coolers, chairs, noodles for the pool and we bought our own floats that we donated to the house after. There were speakers for music and the pool lit up with colors at night. It was a 10-15 minute uber from the airport and short ubers to Olas Blvd, dinners and the night scene (10-25 minutes depending where)

                                                                    Sue and Mitch were great to work with and the Yacht ride that came with the house was amazing! It was clutch that it was included as a boat was one of the main things the bride wanted to do. We ordered sandwiches to be brought on with us to maximize boat time and filled 2 big coolers provided with drinks and ingredients to make frozen drinks.

                                                                    I would definitely stay here again

                                                                    Awesome stay, nothing like waking up at the pool with a view of yachts in the morning!

                                                                    Torri A.

I booked through them to celebrate my 40th Birthday with family and friends, it was 8 ladies. The house had plenty room for everyone. This house went above our expectation, it was well stocked for all our cooking needs. The yacht boat ride was also a huge plus, we literally did not want to leave the house, the pool and Jacuzzi, was wonderful. If you book with them you will not be disappointed. We are already making plans for next year. Thanks for everything Mitch and Sue.

                                                                    A Wonderful Stay!!

                                                                    The place was perfect for our group of 10. Mitch and Sue were so helpful .The bedrooms and living spaces were clean and as described and the kitchen was well stocked. We all loved the pool and used it everyday. The complimentary yatch cruise was so much fun for all of us. Spending the whole day swimming and cruising up the intercoastal was a real highlight of our trip to Florida. We would definately stay here again and would recommend this house to others.
