Great Value

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my wife and I rented this house, with possible plans for another full two-month stay next year. The pool is what we enjoy the most, especially now that it is heated. The house has all of the necessities, and the price can't be beat.

Location, Comfort, Pet Friendly & Heated Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever. The house had everything we needed & was very comfortable & clean. Great location. Great for Spring Training if you fancy that stuff. Quiet area. Well kept up neighborhood & nice people surrounding it. The heated pool was the icing on the cake. Our Lab swam in it almost every day. Blair is a pleasure to work with & easy to contact when needed. And most important, it's pet friendly. I thank Blair very much for allowing our dogs to tag along. It was a great experience for us all!!!

A Wonderful House and Pool

  • 5 of 5

The ultimate customer compliment is being a return customer...and we've already made plans to go back to this house next year. The house was very comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed from kitchen utensils to linens. It even has a wine cooler. The best part of the house was the private pool. The only negative was it may need some updating in the near future

My 30 Day Stay!!! Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the house I automatically felt on vacation. The home was tastefully decorated and immaculate. I opened the drapes to the sight of a crystal clear pool and beautiful landscaping. My stay was for 30 days, and the feel of the home was just as great on Day 29 as on Day 1. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was just fine:)

Great Home Away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Neil/Carolyn/Buddy/Beau rented Jul-Aug '11; what a great experience. Centrally located for remarkable entertainment venues and parks/kids'/adult swim/play pools ("Surprise" is aptly named), golf, restaurants, and every shopping need (w/in 10-15 min any time of day). VERY nice home, beautiful pool and backyard pool and landscape ambiance (day and night) is hard to match. We were there in hottest months due to care for mother necessity, but even in summer a great get-a-way! Our pets loved it too!! We looked at many options, but for real value this immaculate, professionately maintained, well provisioned home is unbeatable! Plus the Owner and nearby management team are extremely responsive and fun to deal with...we could not have been more pleased!
