Serene and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The backyard was our favorite! This is a very quiet neighborhood and we enjoyed lounging in the pool during the day. The house had everything we needed and we felt right at home. Mike was always so quick to answer my questions which I greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this property!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young children, and myself stayed at Mike's place at the end of March. The house was absolutely perfect for our needs. The neighborhood was quiet, the house was very clean, and the layout was great. Mike provides you with basically everything you could possibly need to make your trip convenient. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the plates, cups, utensils, blenders, etc. you could possibly need. All you need to do is show up with food and you are good to go. There were also several recreational objects at your disposal (ping pong table, bikes, golf clubs, pool toys, etc.). The pictures on the site don't do the backyard justice. Outside of the pool and expansive yard, the covered patio was much bigger than I thought and perfect for lounging under.

Our only complaint, and I really can't complain, is that the pool was a little bit too cold for us. The reason I can't complain is because 1) we knew that the pool was not going to be heated to 85 degrees and 2) we took a chance on the weather by going out in March. We were obviously hoping for the weather to be high 80's to low 90's but got stuck with high 60's and low 70's. This obviously wasn't Mike's fault, so that is why I still give the house 5 stars. With that being said, the pool's beach ledge was perfect for my 4-year-old and myself to splash around in. So we were still able to utilize it.

I really couldn't recommend this house enough. We will definitely stay here again and would have no issues with telling a friend to stay here. Mike was very responsive and helpful along the way. I had several questions and requests and he was able to accommodate them all.

Fantastic location and house

  • 5 of 5

My 2 sisters and I stayed at mikes house for 4 nights. Since we spent most of our time visiting parents, we didn't get to enjoy the house as much as we would have liked. This is the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen with any rental. . The layout of the house and quiet neighborhood are both great as well. We didn't use the pool or fire pit, but they looked awesome!

Great property, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great property for an active family. Separation of space, stocked kitchen, and wonderful pool and back yard. We would certainly consider returning to this property again.

Everything we expected

  • 5 of 5

We had done quite a bit of research before choosing this property and were pleased to find that all our expectations were met. Like the other reviewers, we loved the location, fresh grapefruits for breakfast every morning, and the beautiful big backyard. We were very impressed that Mike thought to supply everything we needed. We used the golf clubs, bikes (with helmets), and even some food staples out of the pantry! The house and yard were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The pool was too cold to use even though we had some unseasonably warm weather in February, but other than that everything was just great. Thanks Mike!

Attention to details!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was not an empty shell, rather Mike put great thought into how folks might enjoy each room.

Games in a cabinet in the living room, the kitchen was a cook's delight with outstanding equipment, (loved the juicer for grapefruits off tree in backyard) all the way down to bike helmets and locks for the bicycles.

While the home is room enough for many people, the backyard/pool area was a wonderful extension of space. Lounging by the pool or playing ping pong, chipping mat and golf clubs. In the evening, the area transformed,

with the built in cooking area, hot tub and fire pit.  The neighborhood is serene and a great place to walk - just around the corner was an equestrian center. The feeling you get here is that of your own private resort.

We appreciated the effort that Mike took to make our stay outstanding!
