Guestbook comments from the owner

A truly a great place to be and relax. We had the use of the bikes each day, enjoyed the use of the golf clubs, especially at Riverwood Golf Club which was extremely friendly and a fantastic course. We had the use of the fishing rods which the kids caught many fish on at Lemon Bay. A highlight for them !!! The villa had everything you could want. The pool and deck area were great and used loads. We loved backing onto the canal. All the rooms were good. We would recommend your villa to anyone as it is a great place to stay.

Beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Ron & Linda's home is located in a very quiet area, fully stocked and clean. We had 4 adults and 6 children in our group and it was very spacious. The littlest ones in pack n plays even had their own "room" in each of the master walk-in closets.

30 minute drive to Boca Grande. ($9) Worth it!

60 minute drive to Siesta Key.

The pool and outdoor lanai was a hit!! Grilling every evening! Sound system outside!

Definitely recommend!

The house was comfortable and well equipped. The pool and hot tub were fabulous! Having a grill on the patio was a plus. Location was convenient for a lot of beaches and various places to see and do things. Extremely quiet neighborhood that was very relaxing. Ron (owner) was great to deal with, prompt and attentive to any questions you have! He is very detailed and easy to communicate with. It's a scenic area where we felt safe and comfortable. We had a wonderful stay!

Has the wow factor

  • 5 of 5

Just come back from a fantastic holiday at Ron & Linda's house.

We had such fun on the boat as well, it was a blast to turn up at islands like Cabbage Key, have some lunch and jet off home again, we felt like we were celebrities.

Location was quiet and the neighbourhood very safe.

Ron was always available and attentive to issues and requests via email, and very friendly.

We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most wonderful week staying at Ron & Linda's house in Florida. The house was far better than we had even imagined when viewing the website! We drove to the beach at Boca Grande most days and it was beautiful! We brought home probably a hundred shells! And they were better than we had found on any other vacation we had ever been on! We went to the second public entrance to the beach on Boca Grande and there was NO ONE there! By afternoon there were probably 5-10 other sets of people there. No crowded beaches! Definitely worth the 15 minute drive! We came home the first day thinking we should get some beach umbrellas. We walked in the garage, and there they were! This house has anything and everything you could possibly ask for, and more! Tons of room for everyone! We were out on the patio every night. Grilled for dinner, swam in the pool, watched movies on the humongous flat screen with the amazing sound system! The house is beautifully decorated with high quality furniture, super-comfy beds, and every amenity you could think of! Trust me, you'll be fighting over the master suite! We gave it to my parents and nicknamed it the "Honeymoon Suite"! We are already planning our return trip! We're planning on staying twice a year now. It's so affordable compared to the others with all their fine print and extra fees. Plus all the money we saved eating at home! We are absolutely ecstatic! Can't wait to return!!!

Two wonderful weeks in Florida

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ron and Linda's house for two weeks. Had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the house, the pool and the boat. Before and during Ron was the perfect guide and quickly replied on al queries we had! We really recommend this house to anybody visiting Florida and the beautiful Gulf Cost. With the boat we saw dolphins, pelicans and alligators... Thanks for letting us use your home!

Delightful Vacation and Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of August beginning of September 2013 and really had a great time. The house was big and inviting, and it had everything we could want or need. The shower in the Master bedroom was amazing, the beds were comfortable and the location was great. We rented the boat during our stay and enjoyed daily outings to go and explore the Ocean. I really enjoyed sitting out by the pool and going for a swim every night and could hear frogs, crickets and fish jumping in the canal. It's very quiet and peaceful, the neighbors were all friendly and we enjoyed casual conversation and suggestions on during our vacation. Beaches are just a 20 minuite drive away and we collected several shark teel and swam in beautiful clear water. Going out on the boat we saw several Dolphins, enjoyed wonderful fishing and beautiful private beaches. This was the vacation we really enjoyed and hope to do again the future.
