Come enjoy our newly renovated home in paradise. You can enjoy your own solar heated private pool that looks out over the water (Electric heater available for an additional charge). Watch the dolphins swim while enjoying your morning coffee on your own dock. We have lots of space that could easily accommodate two families. Our home is nestled in a nice quiet family neighborhood and just a short drive or walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants and other fun activities.
Everything was perfect! Dora was easy to reach with any questions or concerns. She sent a message to let us know there had been an issue, but that it was resolved. We loved the pool and the dock. The dads and kids loved fishing off the dock. We were a mile from 2 public beach parking areas. You can walk, but if you've got kiddos, I'd recommend driving as to avoid meltdowns associated with being over tired. The house was beautiful and we felt centrally located do everything. There was enough room for everyone to spread out and we had everything that we needed. No complaints from us. We'll definitely be saving this property for future trips.
This house is perfect for a crowd. The main area is open with lots of seating options. The decorations were beachy yet tasteful, what I love when visiting the beach. The pool was great but there was a tropical storm while we were there and the water got a bit dirty, we swam anyway. You can have a fast paced or relaxing vacation at this location, close to lots of fun attractions, we chose relaxing. Had a wonderful time, so glad we rented Doras house. I will rent it again if we revisit this area. I give it 5 stars!
It is GREAT SADNESS, I have just read a review of Dora's house that can only be described as a completely untruth.. My family exited the house just days before this ladies arrival and the construction had not started at that time. This house is one of the nicest, cleanest, completely supplied homes I've ever stayed in. The neighbors are very friendly and Dora is a phone call away to take care of any needs or problems that should arise.
Our family has stayed 6 times and I have never expected Dora to keep tabs on anything her neighbors would attempt to work on during my stay. I feel that we need to be on our best behavior to be welcome into a neighborhood as fine as Dora's and accept the remodeling or building of her neighbors to be completely ignored by us the visitor..
Please don't let the response of one unhappy individual guide you away from a vacation in Dora's house with your family, I promise you you won't be disappointed after your arrival. Make sure to read all the responses and notice this is the only one so negative and darkened with expectations that are completely unachievable by any neighbors much less a person who rents for a month.
I plan on staying many more years to come and if I was available to rent these last two weeks so this person could recoup her money I would. To lash out to an innocent person over a completely uncontrolled situation is heartless and absurd. I assume she could have asked the home owners preparing to build their new home to please wait until the completed their vacation before they broke ground.
May God bless such an unhappy renter..
I write this with great sadness as we have had 3 very happy holidays here, each a month long.
This visit has been totally spoiled by the building of a new house immediately opposite this one. The noise etc has been unbearable from the pile driving, to the earth moving, to the dirt.
I asked Dora Datz Moore last November to ensure she informed us of any works' start date as we were not prepared to rent the house whilst work either started or was ongoing. She assured me she would do so.
Imagine our horror to find that within 13 hours of arriving the works did indeed start, and we have endured 2 weeks of horrendous noise from the pile driving by a huge crane immediately opposite the house. It can be heard inside the house with all doors and windows shut !!
I sent Dora 2 pictures and 2 videos of the noise etc. I was told that it was not her problem and that she was not aware of the start date for building works to commence. She stated this even though an agents board with local tel. no. was put on site at the end of November, and even though she visited the house herself 5 times, the last visit being 12 days before we arrived.
As we had made an agreement back in November not only was it her moral duty, but her Legal duty too, to ascertain when the building works were due to commence. For her to put us in this situation after our agreement was not only disingenuous but pretty low too.
She stated that we just had to put up with the noise and dirt for our four week stay as it was not her fault, and that it was acceptable that for four whole weeks we could not sit out by the pool to read and relax. But, it WAS her problem as she had reneged on our agreement back in November.
How any half decent or half reasonable person thinks that it is acceptable to subject someone to a four week holiday where they cannot sit out by the pool during that time to rest and relax is a very disingenuous and avariced person indeed - especially in view of our agreement when I expressly stated I would not come here during ANY building works.
We have lasted two whole weeks with the dirt and the noise but have decided to leave here for our last two weeks to get some long needed rest and relaxation. Dora has refused to meet us halfway by refunding 50% of the rental fee so we have now had to spend out thousands of dollars more to rent another property. We find it very sad that greed and avarice has taken the place of honesty and integrity.
First off Dora and her family, along with their hired help, were awesome. If anything needed to be attended to they immediately took care of it. The home is very spacious and can easily accommodate many guest comfortably. We lived in this home for 2 months and enjoyed it everyday. There is plenty to do ...swimming in the pool (heated, if needed), fishing off the dock (we caught black and red drum, flounder, a nurse shark, lady fish and whiting), dolphin watching, walking and riding bikes in the safe neighborhood, golfing and playing tennis(3 minute walk from house) and walking to the beach, restaurants and shops( about 1 mile) plus many more things. All of are guests enjoyed there stay and kept telling us how comfortable the home felt. We are so fortunate to have found this home on VRBO and will definitely be back.
This is by far the best rental we have ever stayed in in Florida and we have been coming here for over 20 years. Dora has renovated the house to a really high standard and it is truly beautiful. We felt straight at home here right from the minute we entered. It is kept beautifully clean, the decoration and furnishings are high end, and every conceivable kitchen utensil is kept in the cupboards, as well as all the cleaning materials and all the electrical appliances. It was truly a home from home. Dora has thought of absolutely everything. I honestly cannot think of one negative thing to say about this house. We just absolutely love it here and will be coming back for two months each year for as long as Dora will let/have us !!! Dora herself is extremely friendly and approachable, and nothing is too much trouble for her. If I could give this house and Dora more than 5 stars then I most definitely would !!!!
Enjoy shopping, or set up fishing tours, or rent a boat at John's Pass. Busch Gardens is just a short drive away and only 1.5 hour away from Disney
