An Amazing Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our family headed to this property as a central point for our travels in the region. We got married on Treasure Island and it was perfect. For the review...First off.. I never write reviews because I prefer reading other people's words. However, because this place has everything you could possibly ever need..seriously she has every kitchen, toiletry, bathroom, amenity you could ever need in this house. In fact, when we buy a house in FL and rent it out we will follow exactly this model. The pictures don't really do this house justice. Its spacious, lots of room for a large family, screened in pool, and fit our family of 7 plus easily. The kids room was perfect, decked out in cool colors with tons of stuffed animals and games.

The property is located on the canal, we fished daily (lots of catfish if you have your bait on the bottom), sink for cleaning the fish on the dock. We loved the Sarasota, Anna Maria Island area and would recommend beach visits to Coquina Beach. We saw stingrays, dolphins and manatees daily.

The owner Susan sent us tons of things on the area, assisted with our wedding and when the fridge went kaput had it fixed that day. Don't hesitate booking this place. All the best, Dan & Jen

Very accomodating for our corporate stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our crew that worked on a landscape installation project in Palmetto, Florida for two months. The guys enjoyed coming back after a grueling day to unwind in this beautiful, relaxing home. They enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, fishing on the canal, the pool and the spacious layout of the house. The owners were extremely accommodating, very pleasant and easy to work with on every detail of our stay. If we ever work in this area again, we will definitely try to stay here. We highly recommend this rental property for both a corporate or personal refuge.

This house is perfect for large families!!

  • 5 of 5

I normally don't consider houses that are pet friendly because of allergies in our family. This house seemed so perfect, and after I spoke to Susan I decided to give it a try. She did extra vacuuming, and to my sons delight there were no allergy issues!! We loved the house and there was something for everyone. The house has everything you could possibly need! We used the fishing poles a lot. My kids favs were the canal and the pool. Susan was very gracious in answering my many questions and checked in on us to make sure we didn't need anything. I highly recommend this house!

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several vacation homes but none as comfortable as this one. This was such a relaxing place to be and we hated to leave. The property was immaculate - well maintained and beautifully landscaped. There were many wonderful personal touches including a little good-bye gift from the owner for myself and my two adult daughters. There were eight of us, my husband, myself, our three adult children and their significant others, and our aged poodle. We all were so comfortable. There were plenty of towels, seating, beds, bathrooms, and the pool. There were also bicycles, fishing equipment, and anything you would need at the beach. A fenced in yard that was also fenced from the dock which kept our little poodle away from the water but he could still watch the mullet jump in the water. It was also close to shopping and attractions. I would recommend this property to anyone needing to relax and a true break from the hustle and bustle of the tourist traps. Would rent this place over and over again. Publix and Walmart are close by, also many great restaurants, and also the Premier Outlets, The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is a short drive away and beaches are close by. Truly a home away from home.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in vacation homes from Hawaii to Bar Harbor to Sorrento, Italy and this was without a doubt the most welcoming home we have been in. The property was impeccable yet comfortable and inviting. The house was spacious and their was plenty of room for 5 adults, 3 kids and the dog. We came for a family Christmas vacation and Susan put up a tree for us to decorate and left little touches of Christmas all over the place. There were games for kids aged 1 to 101. The location was perfect on a cul de sac in a quiet family neighborhood situated right on one of the canals leading to the Bay. We all agreed this is a vacation home we would return to.

We stayed for two and a half weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The home was clean and was the 'best stocked' home we have ever rented. The location was ideal, with short drives to Anna Marie Island, Bradenton Beach, Longboat key as well as Sarasota, St. Pete, etc. The house can handle a large family. The owners were accommodating, very easy to deal with. Restaurants: River House & Kostas in Palmetto, The Waterfront on Anna Marie Isl. were great along with many others. We enjoyed the pool and lanai that had a lot of lounge chairs, pool toys, etc. A manatee was seen in the canal almost daily and you can fish off the dock. This home is on our recommended list.
