We would definitely come back here!

We had a wonderful week here. It's a great neighborhood, house was perfect, and having the pontoon was great. We saw dolphins in the canal on our first evening there! We are sad to leave ....

Tons of water fun

  • 5 of 5

Nice place, comes as shown. Between the pool, private beach, local beaches and the boat which was our favorite going to the island or sandbar to explore and relax or fishing, was a very enjoyable time for my family. The pool table is a great idea during poor weather stretches. Multiple TV's was great to unwind in the evening, kids can have their show and parents theirs.
