Our stay at Villa Aqua was everything we hoped it would be. This beautiful property is stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Jim made us feel welcome and provided excellent restaurant suggestions. I highly recommend this property and hope to stay again soon.

We were impressed from the minute we opened the front door to this beautiful home. There was plenty of room for six of us and the I can't say enough about the amazing pool. We will definitely book this place again in the future.

Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

After renting Villa Acqua last February, we liked it so much that we returned for most of February and all of March this year. So glad we did. The neighbors are very friendly, the neighborhood is just lovely for daily dog walks and is close to everything.

Although we had a number of cool days, many days were spent in the quiet and private, lushly landscaped backyard, listening to birds and watching butterflies and geckos. It was perfect for our dogs, one of which enjoyed a daily swim in the warm pool. Publix is within walking distance. Whole Foods and Trader Joe are five minutes away and many good restaurants, often suggested by Jim, are within 15 minutes. So is the beach.

VIlla Acqua is so nicely decorated with marble floors which are easy to clean. Both bathrooms are updated and beautifully done. The kitchen is beautiful as well with plenty of workspace and all the utensils and tools you could need.

Jim was wonderfully responsive to anything we needed. We can't say enough about his desire to make us happy. VIlla Acqua makes vacation house renting a pleasure.

Well maintained, comfortable, stylish home that has it all for the making of a great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect vacation home for our first family getaway. We were impressed from the moment we stepped onto the property. The home is extremely well maintained, very stylish, comfortable and the backyard heated pool was enjoyed by everyone.

What really makes this property unique is the friendly and accommodating owner Jim, who stopped by the day we arrived to make sure everything was to our liking and did everything he could to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible for our 6 month old daughter.

It is quite evident that Jim takes pride in his property and that he wants anyone who stays there to enjoy their time away.

We will absolutely stay at this vacation home again and we would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Clean, comfortable beds and private clean pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit was wonderful. 3 couples shared the house and we all agreed it was a fantastic stay. The house is decorated very nicely, the 2 bathrooms and kitchen are updated and were stocked with everything you will need during your stay. The beds were all queen sized and super comfy! We mostly enjoyed the pool in the private backyard with beautiful vegetation surrounding the property. We also bbq'd a few times using the outdoor cooking tools provided. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils, plates, glasses, cookware and tools that you would need, even a coffee bean grinder. The home is well built and seemed to be well insulated and soundproofed. We suggest that guests bring an old style iPod or nano to enjoy the provided portable speaker outdoors by the pool. We recommend guests purchase some inexpensive rafts to float in the pool on. The location is great and is a quick drive away from everything from the beach to restaurants, stores and attractions. We would return in a heartbeat and Jim was very easy to work with. Thank you for providing a great place for our boat show getaway!
