Wonderful Easter week vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. When I walked in I was pleasantly surprised. This was the first time we used vrbo. Helen the owner was great to work with. She responds back with any questions or whatever you need right away. The house had every amenity imaginable. It was great being so close to the beach if you forgot anything or wanted to go home for lunch. The convenience of being so close to downtown is nice to. You can park your car and forget about it for a week. My husband, 13 year old son, and our yorkie all had a great time. We will definitely come back.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

May I start by saying that from the moment my family and I unpacked we felt like we were at home! The house was beautifully decorated with a beach filled atmosphere. The location was perfect and the house had everything to make our many trips to the beach very convenient, including an outdoor shower to clean off all the sand. There was plenty of room for our family with 2 teenagers. I especially loved the spacious kitchen with all the amenities. The beautiful deck was quiet for my morning tea and perfect for enjoying company and wine!We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and enjoy the town square. Helen, the owner was a pleasure to deal with when we had questions and made our arrival very pleasant. We will definitely be booking with her again.

Our new escape to paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had been looking for a place to rent to escape the winter cold. As soon as we walked in we knew we had made a great choice - this lovely renovated beach house was exactly what we had been looking for. The house is tastefully decorated throughout with a beautiful porch that easily lends itself to either a quiet morning with your coffee or a nice evening for cocktails. The kitchen is a nice size and fully stocked with everything you need. We really enjoyed it's close proximity to the beach and being able to walk to many good restaurants in the area. There were only 2 of us, but when our daughter or another couple joined us for part of the time, there was still plenty of room. The owners Jim and Helen are very friendly and will help with anything you need. We enjoyed our stay so much that we can't wait to return this lovely beach house again next year.

Our winter escape.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February enjoying this beautiful beach home. Walking through the door we knew we found the perfect place for our beach vacation. The house is fully equipped and beautifully decorated. We spent many hours sitting relaxing on the rear deck. The car was left parked for most of the month as everything we needed was within walking distance. Walk four doors down to Estero Blvd and cross to the beach or turn right for a five minute walk to Times Square. The beach is beautiful and goes on for miles. Our dog made many new friends. She even had a favorite beach bar that she would take us to watch the sun set! We feel very lucky to have discovered this corner of paradise and look forward to returning next year.
