"A beautiful home on the inside with a beautiful view of the Manatee River. The home could be spruced up a little on the outside. The inside was spectacular in most areas, but could use some updates in the kitchen and and some touch up paint in the game room. JoAnn was great to work with, and we hope to return some day!!"

"Lovely home with so much to do you won't want to leave! This is a very comfortable place, with a great layout and access to the pool, hot tub, and game room area from the den and master bedroom. Beds are very comfortable, furnishings are comfortable, a desk and computer is provided. Really, everything you think you might need on vacation is available! And if you can't find something, both Chris and Carol are extremely helpful and efficient.
The pool is simply MARVELOUS! No freezing temps from owners too stingy to keep the heat on. It's perfect. The hot tub is large with great jets and plenty of heat as well. We love this place and will be back again."

"My family and I had a wonderful week at Casa Encantada!! Captain Julie and Pam have managed to create an oasis that feels like your own private resort!! We loved the spacious house that was full of character and charm. The kitchen is fabulous...quite honestly outfitted better than my own at home!! Our family loved cooking wonderful meals, and enjoyed dining by candlelight on the screen porch!! The property is beautifully landscaped with wonderful views of the water!! Sunsets are to die for!!! The lagoon style pool and Tiki Bar/Hut make this wonderful property complete!! We hardly saw anything outside these walls, as we couldn't tear ourselves away. I don't know who loved it more, our dogs or us!! We all agreed that our time at Casa was a memory that won't be soon forgotten. Captain Julie and Pam are wonderful hosts, and we all hopefully look forward to seeing them again soon!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us!!"
