Excellent Christmas family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! What a privilege it was to have access to a wonderful boat! We had it on the water every day and had a blast enjoying the wonderful weather, fishing, sunning, the water and the sights. The house is just as pictured. Kevin was always quick to respond to each of my requests prior to coming down. Once we arrived the house was clean and never needed the property manager for anything even though he lives in the neighborhood. I would definitely consider renting this property again. This had to be the closest we have ever been to a grocery store when in a vacation rental. Very convenient to many activities.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as pictured. We absolutely loved having the boat going thru the channels and out to the sandbar was different every trip you never new what type of Sea life you would see. The private beach is very clean and well kept. We can't wait to come back. I had questions before we came down and Kevin was very quick to respond to them. Thanks for sharing your home.

Great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this vacation home. The owner and manager was a pleasure to work with. The house is very nice and had everything we needed. The boat was a added bonus for the trip. Only a thirty minute boat ride out to the Anclote key which had a nice beach and clear water. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and would definitely return here again!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! Everything was clean and well stocked. Mickey, the caretaker is wonderful and was quickly able to take care of any of our mistakes (like locking ourselves out of the house!). For us, the access to the sandbar with the pontoon boat really made our trip. We'd get up, ride out to the sandbar after breakfast and stay until early afternoon (it's about a half hour ride out). We'd come back and the kids could play in the pool while the adults relaxed until dinner. After dinner, we'd take a quick 4 minute car ride down to the private beach to see the most amazing sunsets. Throw in the pool table, dart board and sauna and this house has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO so we didn't know what to expect. To say we enjoyed our stay would be an understatement! The house, pool, and boat were all just great! We will definitely go here again!

Wonderful home in a quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this home, and we had a wonderful time! The house is comfortably furnished, and the owner has remodeled it with very nice finishes. The small pool is very refreshing and well maintained. The highlight for us was the pontoon boat, which we took out to the sandbar and Anclote Key - definitely the best part of our vacation!

The property manager, Mike, greeted us at check-in and made sure we had all the necessary information for a wonderful, stress-free week. The owner, Kevin, is very timely in responding to questions, emails, etc., and genuinely desires that anyone renting this home has a great experience! Everything went very smoothly.

This is not your typical vacation rental - the area is mostly residential and very quiet, which we loved. The private neighborhood beach is great for sunbathing, etc., though the amount of seedweed in the water really prevented our group from fully enjoying the water. However, my husband and I really enjoyed sunbathing and watching the sunsets there. Also, there are some very nice public beaches nearby.

We highly recommend this property for a quiet, stress-free Florida vacation!
