"Last summer we put together the best family reunion ever. This is a big house and with a few air mattresses we got close to 20 people in for the reunion. We'll get in this year too if we're lucky!"Guest: Helen Date of Stay: January 2012 Review Submitted: January 23, 2012View listing
"My husband had to go to Tampa on business, so I took my two children down near the end of his business trip where we rented this condo. The condo was stocked with so much more than the average condo with beach towels, paper towels, salt/pepper, and so much more. The area was beautiful, and we really enjoyed the pool area. We were the only ones staying there, so we had the entire area to ourselves. We grilled out almost every night which was so nice since I have a 23 month old and a 3 1/2 year old which always makes it challenging to go out to eat. The owner was extremely helpful. When my husband goes back to Tampa again on business, we plan on renting again. Thanks for providing such a great place for a much-needed vacation!"Guest: Theresa Date of Stay: April 2013 Review Submitted: May 15, 2013View listing
"We had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautiful town home for 2 months this winter. We absolutely loved our stay here and have booked for 3 months next year!! It is located close to everything.....shopping, restaurants, bars, golfing and of course the beaches!! The weather was superb this year. We had 19 days in the 80's and 12 in the 70's this January. February had 11 days in the 70's, 16 days in the 80's and 1 in the 60's. It only rained one full day with 2 other showers that lasted 15 minutes over the 2 months. When you come from snowy Canada this is paradise!! The town home was spectacular with high end, top quality furnishings and kitchen supplies. It was well maintained and spotless. The internet pictures did not do this home justice!! Patricia was wonderful to deal with and always got back to us right away when we had questions or concerns. She was gracious and very informative about websites with places to go and shelling areas. She made us feel very welcome. She is great!! The grounds and pool area are meticulous. The people living in the area were also friendly. We really felt that we were "home". All of our visitors were very impressed with the quality of the place, especially since it was a rental. They all want to come back too! LOL !! We would recommend this town home to anyone. It was so much more than what we expected!! Looking forward to next year!!!! Can't wait!!!!"Guest: Sue Date of Stay: January 2013 Review Submitted: March 4, 2013View listing
"La maison nous a laissé admiratifs à notre arrivée. Nous avons séjourné dans une chambre agréable et "cosy" donnant sur la mer. le matin au lever du soleil, un paysage digne d'une toile de peintre s'offre à nous, en même temps qu'un petit déjeuner copieux. Les propriétaires sont charmants, à l'accueil sympa, avec des conseils précieux afin de visiter la région. Nous recommandons cette demeure à tous."Guest: etienne m.
