Outstanding - just as described!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay last week in Lefty's Jewel was wonderful. The home is beautifully decorated, spacious, clean--everything was just as described. The pool was great and provided a nice option when we were too lazy to walk to the beach. The shaded second floor front veranda was wonderful for sitting in the afternoon and reading, surrounded by palm trees and flowering bushes. Danielle's kitchen was so well appointed--we're cooks (we never ate out the entire week) and we found every possible cooking pan or utensil we might have needed. The walk to the ocean was only minutes from the house. Both walking/biking paths on the Plantation were close by, and we walked with the dogs 4 miles each day. Danielle was wonderful to work with when we had questions prior to arriving. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great house and pool

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th house in the plantation area and definitely our favorite. The house is very well laid out and everything you needed was provided. I honestly believe this is the best lot.. The pool area is massive and so private. Definitely no neighbors around so you can really enjoy yourself and not have to worry about anyone around you. It is a short stroll to the beach, and you can see the water from the rooms upstairs. The owners were amazing at communicating and were only a phone call away. Would highly recommend it.

We had a great vacation at Lefty's Jewel. The private pool was used every day and a very nice addition to the house! The house was well stocked with everything you might need during a stay! The house's location was also very nice - private, and a short walk to the beach, with beautiful views of the ocean from the deck! We also took advantage of the bike paths and enjoyed that also! We would recommend Lefty's Jewel to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation! Only down-side (which was no fault of the owners or the property). was that the mosquitos were pretty fierce, at least in August! Bring mosquito repellent! Loved our stay, other than that!

Excellent rental property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lefty's Jewel. The house was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked. The beach was a short walk away. We are already planning a return trip.
