Very Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently came to Florida to attend a wedding at Honeymoon Island. This villa fit me and my hubby, our 4 kids, and my parents very comfortably. The house was very clean and the beds were very cozy. The kids enjoyed the pool. We liked that we were so close to Honeymoon Island (only a 7-10 min drive down the road). The owner, Karen, was very helpful and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We have no complaints and would love to come back and stay again!

Great house and more!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised and more. I have always spent a fortune on Hotel stays and they had cramped quarters with a mini fridge. This house was well worth the money and gave us a much more private and relaxing experience on our vacation. The icing on the cake was the screened in pool in the back yard. Our kids lived in it at night and in the morning and it kept the bugs and mosquitos far away. The house was well stocked with cooking utensils and we saved a lot of money by eating in. The back sliding door does come off the slider at times and it can make it difficult for kids to open and close. This house easily slept our family of five and I will be back again. Thank you so much for making our vacation perfect!

As Advertised! Central location, perfect for my group of 3, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

After looking at subpar VRBOs and AirBnBs in this area Karen's house stood out. It was just as advertised. Very comfortable. Kitchen pretty stocked. We enjoyed the pool much more than we anticipated and really appreciated the fast internet!

Thanks again for everything!

Nice home in quiet neighborhood with swimming pool just out the back door centrally located.

  • 4 of 5

Eight of us including five grandkids stayed comfortably in this home. The enclosed screen structure around the heated swimming pool was a huge hit with the kids! Each evening following our visits to the several beaches or area attractions, the pool was the perfect touch. The patio door just just 3 steps from the pool gets quite a workout and could use a little maintenance, but still very serviceable. While we were there, new sidewalks were completed for walks through the neighborhood. All in all it was very much like home away from home and we will consider this property again! The owners and caretakers are very pleasant folks!
