Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your home with our family. What a special place!as the temperatures crested over 100 degrees back home, we appreciated the Colleen evenings and afternoon breezes.... Whew. The girls throughly enjoyed the trampoline and the swimming pool and the many adventures with their cousins. We appreciated the time to unplug, and the tennis court!

Great Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

We (10 of us-5 adults/5 teenagers) just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it. It was a perfect place for the whole family. We loved the pool, the tennis court and the waterfront views.

The house was very clean, spacious and offered everything that we needed. The owners are friendly and answered any and all of the questions that we had.

I would highly recommend this property to everyone.
