Needs updates!!!!!!

  • 3 of 5

The view off the back of the house is beautiful. The rest of the house is run down.

If this house were more inviting I would give it more stars. The appliances and all decor is from the 1970s. Everything in the kitchen is mix matched and old. The front bathroom is extremely outdated. This place did not seem like a vacation home. It wouldn't cost much to get it into the 20th century. It is in the perfect location. Carpet is gross

Wonderful Property!

  • 4 of 5

I try to be as honest as possible with these reviews. There's no sense sugar-coating things only to disappoint the next guest. This is a really wonderful property. We have been vacationing in this area twice a year for 30 years, and this is one of our top picks. Situated on a very quiet street on the inland waterway, it has a wonderful feeling of being hidden. Walking in the front door, I could tell immediately that the place was spotlessly clean, and smelled fresh. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds and mattresses. Unlike so many properties we've stayed at, it also included enough supplies (toilet paper, disk soap, garbage bags etc) to last our entire stay. It also included a cupboard full of spices etc for cooking. This may sound like a small thing, but it becomes a major irritant when your first trip to the grocery store includes $50 in basics! The florida room at the front of the house is spectacular. It stretches the entire width of the property, and has huge windows looking out on the inland waterway. We spent a lot of time at the beach, but when we were at the house, we spent all our time in this room. The property also has a lovely dock where our kids spent a lot of time fishing, and playing in the two small kayaks that are included with the rental. This is another huge bonus as it provided endless hours of entertainment without having to go anywhere. There are 5 bicycles in the garage that we used daily. It was so lovely to cycle through the neighbourhood to look at some of the beautiful properties and landscaping. More than once we cycled up to the beach to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.

So what's not to like? Not much really. The bathroom is VERY dated with old coral tiles, ancient fixtures, and a rusty sink. The last thing I want to do down in Florida is watch TV, but if that's important to you, only one of the TVs had cable. None of this was important to us though, and we loved staying here. We will definitely consider coming back again.

Family Wedding April 2016

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, peaceful, relaxing, everything we needed and more! This is a roomy home with lots of charming decor! Everyone loved sitting in the Florida room enjoying the view, or sitting on the dock watching the pelicans, herons and egrets fly by. Sometimes landing next to you! Dolphins could be seen close by. My husband swam across the bay, and took out a kayak. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat! We prefer the bay to the beach, but the beach is very close. There are several bicycles in the garage that can get you there in just a few minutes. The kitchen is well equipped and there are chaise lounges the sunbathe in the back yard. Thanks for a great vacation!!

June 2015 vacay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this location. Much to do in this area. We highly recommend travelling 45 mins to the shell key ferry and spending a few hours there. Very pristine and beautiful! The beach from this house is a short drive or 10 min walk, or 3 min bike ride. It is nice, but nothing like shell key island. The house is comfortable. Most everything is old...beds, dishwasher, stove, fridge, washer/dryer, but still in usable and working condition. The Florida room is awesome! Love the unclutteredness of this house. Had to plug my computer in behind the master bed and was so dusty and dirty back there! The bikes are usable for short distances, but really are not in good working condition...ie gears don't work, brakes not working well, etc.. We fished and hung out on the back dock a lot. Very nice space. The "paddle boards" they have at the house are not real paddleboards. They look like they would have had small sails on them? They are way different from those you rent up the street. They sufficed for a day, tho. All in all, we had a good time and believe this house is a good value. It is not fancy, but it more than fit the bill for what we needed...vacay for a family on a budget. Thank you!

fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house with everything you could need. A home from home. The best place to chill out. Wake up early to watch the sunrise from your own dock and to say hi to the dolphins. 10 minutes walk down to the lovely beach for perfect sunsets. One complaint- should have stayed longer

Directly at the Golf of Mexico! You cannot get closer to the water! Nice old house. Renewed in Janauray 2011, With private, flowerful garden, private dock, from where you can watch dolfins and manatees swimming by or just relax and fish.

In the morning you can watch the sunrise from the bed, living room, florida room or directly on the dock. Watch the sunset in the white warm sand at the beach which is 7 minutes walking distance and not very crowded. There you can swim in warm water, walk or go jogging for miles.

The public tennis courts with lights, skateboard park, basketball, libary are 5 a minutes walk away.

Many nice restaurants and pubs in walking distance.

Lots of golf courses near by.
