"We had a fabulous week!!! Your home is perfect for families with children of all ages to enjoy. We had the enough room for all 23 of us. The dining room was perfect for the 10 adults and the 13 children ate at the breakfast area table and barstools or the table outside the kitchen on the deck.
Weather was hot -- a little warmer than we expected but no problem. We rented a pontoon boat for 2 days -- the kids love the tube behind the boat. They also enjoyed the top of the boat house jumping in the lake. The 2 younger kids(3 & 4) had sand buckets and played in the sand at the volleyball court. The pool was used from early morn until late at night.
The neat thing was in the evenings the older 4 kids (15 - 14 - 13- 12) played the board games you had Risk, Life, etc from years ago. So nice to see this instead of electronics. The 13 children were from age 15-1/2 to almost 4 yrs. They got along so well we were amazed. The 2 older ones had not met all of Tom's grandchildren and they were so helpful with them fishing, etc. We did everything. The little girls used the fitness room for the mirrors to practice ballet and dancing -- so cute.
I hope we can plan a vacation there again. We have gone to Hilton Head & Naples with our children but not recently. We were waiting for the younger ones to get out of the toddler stage.
Maurice was helpful, considerate and a great asset for check-in and during our stay. I called him to get the name of a dentist for my son's girlfriend that broke a tooth. He got an appointment for her on Mon morn at 11 -- amazing for a new patient to be seen so quickly even if it was an emergency. We appreciate his help.
We have given the VRBO # to several of our friends and family. I hope they can enjoy your home.
Thank you for sharing your home with our family."

"We spent Thanksgiving week in this home and enjoyed our time completely. The common area is large with lots for room and counterspace for our holiday dinner with 20 plus family members. Since it was November we couldn't really make use of the pool or lake but the location is very convenient to restaurants and shopping. We love Gainesville and were happy to spend the holidays there and this home made it very comfortable for us."

"Our family had a wonderful 4 generation family reunion at this beautiful home and can highly reccomend it to everyone! The home is very well maintained and the lake is beautiful. We had 13 of us - from age 4 months to 80 years old and it was great for everyone. The master bedroom suite was perfect for G-Gma and G-Gpa and kept their need to go up and down stairs to a minimum. The largest bedroom upstairs with the crib was great for my son's family, and the downstairs rooms worked for the singles in the family. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in - plenty of room for everyone to get involved - and we used the enclosed porch for some fun family games like Pictionary. Hopefully we will be able to go back another time!"
