"Not much you can say about this place...other than wow. This place is pretty amazing. The house itself is beautiful: clean, nice decor, well stocked kitchen.....but the view, from all angles and levels, was spectacular.
We spent the days lounging in the sun, in the heated pool, on the kayak, grilling, fishing....
Was a nice family vacation - leaving there to come back to single digit temperatures wasn't all that much fun
Becky was great to work with, and I am sure we will be back."

"This rental, and this vacation, by far exceeded my expectations and was the vacation of a lifetime. As you can tell if you have looked at the availability calendar it is booked basically solid for a reason...Jims home is not only practical but aesthetically appealing, comfortable, and has everything, and I mean everything you could possibly want or need to make your vacation everything you could ever imagine. From the routine visits from the manatees in the canal, to the wildlife and fishing(with poles and tackle provided), to kayaking and canoeing among the mangroves. The home is private, roomy, comfortable, well stocked, I mean honestly the only thing I could have asked for is more time in a day and more hours in a week to enjoy all that there is. Jim is an awesome host and was so helpful pointing out places to go, instruction with the boat and how to navigate around the waters, fishing spots. etc. and like others I am reluctant to give this amazing find away, but I assure you if you rent Jims property you will have no regrets except that you didn't rent it for longer. We already booked for next year and learned our lesson-two weeks not just one!! Thank You Jim...the only recommendation I can make and its no reflection on the property is make sure you bring some bug repellent-its florida and your right on the canal-stands to reason....was told by the locals baby magic baby lotion applied thinly works great...BEST VACATION EVER!!"

"We returned to this home for our family vacation because it has everything we need;beach, pool, fishing, large kitchen, etc. Three families are able to stay comfortably (11 people in all) with kids age two to nineteen. Our young kids had such a good time swimming, playing on the beach and making smores in the firepit that they didn't even want to venture out. Early mornings on the dock yielded porpoise and manatee sightings and the sunsets were spectacular."

"Staying at Almost Heaven truly depicts its name, from the beautiful sunrise to the awesome afterglow of the colorful sunsets. The house is nicely appointed which makes for a comfortable stay.
This why we have been return renters for 15 + years, and hope for many more!
