"What a beautiful home with a spectacular view! I don't even know where to begin. First, Connie, I can't thank you enough for opening up your beautiful home to our family. I know we had a rocky first day... Totally OUR FAULT, not at all you, yet you maintained your cool and stopped what you were doing with your own family to make sure our stay was top notch (and it far surpassed that!). The view, the accommodations (all we needed was to fill our fridge - everything else was provided), the friendly neighbors and Tom & Joel... Just great! We fished, we swam, we saw dolphins every day, horseshoe crab, Blue crab (caught a few too), fiddler crabs, the kids just had a blast. The upstairs loft was perfect for them! They were close but not too close (this WAS a vacation for us too! Ha!) The pool was incredible. The fact it has a little step all the way around, even in the deep end, where our kids could hang, was awesome! I've never seen that before (and I've lived my whole life in Florida and have seen a million different pools, even worked for a pool construction company!), the chairs and comfy cushions, the balcony on the house, the view overlooking the waterway.. Spectacular! We've already begun talking about coming back in October or November. Across the street, literally (no crossing over traffic to get to it), is the trolley pick up which costs a buck (we didn't use it but saw it all over town all week). We were within minutes of the beach (which I thought we'd spend more time but kids loved the pool and dock so much we only went one day - hooray for not having to pack a cooler, pop up tent, chairs, towels, etc!) and shopping and restaurants, everything is literally right there. It's so convenient! The best thing about it all, affordable! My mom came up (oh my gosh, that in itself..! We thank you SO much for making that possible!!) and took one look and said how lucky we were to find such an amazing place, ESPECIALLY at that price. She's one to vacation. She's rented houses on the water before. This was by far her favorite and was literally HALF the cost of every other place she's stayed! I can't gush enough. Thank you so much for making our vacation (that we get only every other year) a memorable one. We look forward to visiting again as soon as possible!"
