Perfect place for any water enthusiasts!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a few nights recently and the place was absolutely perfect for my five member family and I. We took our 19' boat with us and the dockage provided (right behind the house) was more than accommodating for our use. All the rooms in the house are very spacious. With the full kitchen, complete with cookware, and BBQ grill under the covered back porch, we were able to prepare all our food right there and take it out on the boat with us. It is a short and scenic boat ride from the dock to Lemon Bay, and then just a few more minutes to Stump Pass, Ski Alley, or any of the other great National Parks or places that grab the attention. I highly recommend eating at Lowards, which is a seafood restaurant just a short walk away from the house, the best in town in my opinion... Greg and Laura are both two of the nicest folks you could ever meet, and quick to address any needs or questions! We will definitely be going back very soon!

Wonderfully Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with this home. It was incredibly comfortable to stay in, and it made our trip so much easier. Laura and Greg were also very helpful and communicative throughout our stay. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home!

Specific answers for this review:

• Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc.? Yes. I'm not sure if it was mentioned in the description, but there is in fact a washer and dryer available in the utility closet in the garage. This is a complete home with everything you'd realistically need.

• Was the property clean and well-maintained? I wish my own home was so well maintained! (Alas, for having three small children.)

• Did the owner provide good customer service? Laura and Greg were very helpful and accommodating throughout our trip.

• Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives? My wife's sister stayed with other family in town while we were there, and she was very jealous of our accommodations. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

• What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike nearby? As I think back on our trip, one of the highlights was just having the time to sit and drink a quiet cup of coffee at the kitchen table each morning with the patio doors open and a warm breeze coming in over the water. There was just so much comfort and relaxation in this home. Beyond that, Englewood is a cute beach town that's not too far from larger towns nearby. It's a lovely place to stay.
