Perfect spot for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying at this townhouse on the weekends while our house is being rebuilt down the road and it has been a wonderful place for us -- sunny and spacious and extremely comfortable. It makes us wonder why we didn't choose to stay here permanently! If our old house location didn't hold so many memories this would have been a great place to start making new memories. The location is perfect...close to the pool, tennis courts, golf course, the Cove Restaurant, the marina, with a view of the lake...but still quiet. It is tastefully decorated and everything is updated. Paul and Deb have made this home feel like your home. Don't hesitate to reserve it today!
