Why Paul Furtaw chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

A very private and relaxing property. Close to the beach. Family and pet friendly.

What makes this house unique

Very quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path. This area used to be a pine tree plantation, back when turpentine was still made from pine sap. Natural Florida wildlife and vegetation still abound. We have been privileged to have an endangered Gopher Tortoise take up residence in the front yard this year.

This is the BEST pool we have ever had in a rental home and the screened patio was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at this home, minus a little trip back north for the birth of our 5th grandchild. The owners are generous and considerate about loaning guests beach gear, charcoal for the grill, and coming by once a week to make sure the pool is clean. The apartment is spacious and very kid friendly. There were lots of books for all ages as well as games. Our grandson stayed for only one week of the month but each time we face-timed with him afterward, he asked to see "his room" with the stuffed animals and the chimpanzee mural.

I do a lot of cooking, and I found that for a rental home, the kitchen was

fairly well equipped. The refrigerator/freezer was perfect and there even was a crockpot.

The owner was very friendly and I felt he was genuine in his offer to let us call him if necessary, "anytime" although we did not find it necessary.

The neighborhood is very quiet, friendly and close to the beach by car. (You may be interested in knowing that the beach is a great place for finding sharks teeth!!)

Our family enjoys biking and we found the 5 mile ride into Old Englewood a nice ride for the Farmer's Market and cafes. For the adventurous, there is also a nice 17 mile round trip bike ride on (tree) Canopy Road between Modesta Beach and Modesta Key from the house. The traffic is minimal.

Consider staying here, we would recommend it .

As Good As It Gets!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice home, large and well kept inside and out. Great pool and deck area, the kids loved the pool slide. Just a few minutes from the beach (free parking). The spacious lanai overlooks a very private back yard. Lots of pool toys, books, games and DVD's for the children. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with more dog walkers than cars on the roadway. We will definitely be returning next year.

This is the best vacation property we have ever rented. The house and the grounds are both well maintained. Large roomy house, very comfortable. Well suited for large groups like ours. We spent a lot of time on the wrap around screened in lanai overlooking the fenced in back yard, very private. Great pool and deck area, perfect for keeping the kids entertained. Paul, the owner, is very accommodating and helpful, and it was very nice that we could our dog along with us. We are looking forward to renting this property again next year.

Everything that we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

When you rent a house, you can't be sure how it's going to turn out. This one was perfect for us. The location, bedrooms, indoor/outdoor space, etc. were excellent, and just as described in the property overview.

Paul, the owner, couldn't have been nicer. He met us at the house when we arrived, and was always just a phone call away. We really didn't need to contact him, but it was nice knowing he was available if necessary.

The location was great. Close to beaches, shopping, attractions, or whatever you wanted to do. If you wanted to hang around at the pool, that was also an option.

For us and our 4 grown kids (and grand-dog), this house was perfect.

Owner's Response: Julia and I both appreciate the fact that our efforts to provide the kind of vacation experience that we would want for ourselves is actually being enjoyed by our guests. We loved living in this house while our children were growing up, so we know what a great house it is. Thank you for allowing us to share it with you.
