Relaxing with nearyby activity options
My wife and I stayed in the ground floor unit and it was just what we needed for some relaxing down time. The bed and furniture was comfortable and we took advantage of the outdoor seating too. The shaded patio helped us get just the right amount of shade time and the deck by the canal allowed us to sit in the sun and watch some boats go by. Our primary goal was quiet relaxation and we had plenty. On days when we wanted to go out there are plenty of local options for boat rides, sandy beaches, fishing trips, artsy shopping and lots of restaurants. The place was extremely clean and it was clear the new owners care about the property and are continuing to upgrade inside and out. They were very responsive to all our questions and quite helpful in suggesting local sites. We would definitely like to return and even bring the grand kids for a bit. There was a second bedroom with bunk beds too.

We had a wonderful stay at the 2nd Nest. The owner's are very nice and very accommodating. The place is very clean and all the things on the listing are correct. There are plenty of places to sit outside with a nice canal in the backyard. One day while sitting on the dock I saw a manatee swimming by. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had a great stay with the only down fall being the traffic caused by the draw bridge and influx of people for the season which is just part of being close to the beach.

We enjoyed our stay immensely and hate to return to the cold weather, at home. It is still snowy and cold. The unit is so roomy and the deck was a great place to relax. We could watch the boats using the canal and see the sun rise (almost) every morning. Its a great place to stay and a good location for getting to other destinations. I would recommend it to one and all. Thank you! Rob and Vi
