Amazing week at a gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was recently remodeled and absolutely gorgeous. There were two families in our group for a total of 11 people. Everyone had their own space and the living areas were nicely sized. There was still plenty of room for more people. At first we thought the pool might be a little small but, the kids didn't mind. They loved every minute. The house was well stocked except I couldn't find a pizza cutter. There was some landscaping going on while we were there and it wasn't a bother at all. They started later in the morning as to not wake us and they were very polite and professional. It is very likely we will stay in this house again.

Carissa Street Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family was able to have privacy but share the space with my sister and her family by reserving the attached rental. The arrangement was perfect. While we feared the pool would be too small for the 6 kids to use it, it actually turned out to be just the right size. We spent each morning at the pool and each afternoon at the beach, which was a short walk away. All the beach towels, beach chairs, and sand toys were a nice convenience.

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house! The pool was very nice and well maintained. It was a short 2 block walk to the beach which was uncrowded with great sunset views. The property manger John was very nice and attentive. There was a plumbing issue (a city street issue) that came up and was handled very quickly with minimal disruption. I would rent this home again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely Florida vacation!

Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control.
