"We are a family of four with a 10 year-old daughter and an 8 year-old son and just returned from a marvelous week at Cabbage Palm Cottage on Little Gasparilla Island. All of us had a great time on our first visit to the area. The island is peaceful, the people are friendly, the beach is lovely, and the sense of calm and quiet is wonderful. There is a real "getting away from it all" feeling amplified by taking a boat there and having no cars around. Also facilitating the experience is the fact that the house itself is bright and beachy and thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed to relax and have fun. Laura and Steve are amazingly kind and considerate hosts. They called to check on us our first full day and later encouraged us to stay over an extra night since no one was coming right behind us. If you are looking to escape, want to stay put and enjoy a special place once you get there, don't need a lot of extraneous stimulation to enjoy yourself, and do want a beautiful environment to appreciate nature (wonderful sunsets!), this is an ideal place. We already look forward to returning."

"Having driven down from Kissimmee and spent 10 days in a rental villa there, to walk through the door of number 99 was an absolute dream. Not that the previous place was shabby, just that this villa took it to another level. Straight away it felt like home; the quality of the furniture, fixtures and fittings were first class and the split plan bedroom layout perfect for a family. Outside the pool was just right and the outlook from the lanai was lovely, certainly something that a city boy like me was not used to. The Englewood area was very quiet and relaxed with wonderful beaches a short drive away. The local places to eat were fine and if you wanted to use some of the more recognised restaurant chains, then head off to Port Charlotte and the junction of SR776 and US41 where many of them could be found. If you need to shop seriously then the Ellenton Outlet Mall was under an hour away and for thrill seekers Busch Gardens about 90 minutes drive. There was only one problem, we didn't want to leave! Having visited Florida 10+ times in the last 15 years and always rented, I have to say this villa was up there with the best."

"My wife and I could of not been more thrilled with the rental. The location was perfect with a short walk to both lido beach and Armond circle. Comfortable is the word I would use to describe the house. We loved being on the canal and were visited by both manatees and dolphins. The home was spotless and very well equipped with all the necessary supplies, utensils and paraphernalia. Brian stopped by right after we checked in and reviewed everything with us. It was the best experience we ever had with a home rental!"

"We were very happy with our accomodations at Shawn and Kelly's condo. We have stayed in Lucaya on a few other occassions, but their attention to detail and selection of quality furnishings made this our best trip."
