"The pictures of the place do not to justice to the wonderful craftsmanship of the house. It has lovely exposed beams throughout the house and warm natural wood tones that seems to calm your thoughts. In addition to this there is an awing view of the rolling hills of Naples from the screened in porch. All appliances functioned great. We were able to cook one night without any issue. The final night I was able to lay outside and stargaze on a beautiful clear night. For a city boy, seeing that many stars was a real treat."

Glorious extended family get away - fun for all ages!
"We spent a terrific week at La Casa Pura Vida and enjoyed relaxing meals on the upper deck. Everything was as promised and even better! The kitchen was well equipped and we never ran out of gas for the outdoor grill. The game room was a pleasure for all of the kids (ages 10, 12, 21, 41, 47, 51, and 81). We had plenty of room and the bathrooms were luxurious. The best shower water pressure we've ever experienced in a rental. It was close to a busy road but we didn't hear much traffic because all of the bedrooms were on the lake-side of the house. It was terrific to have the restaurant next door -- the ladies escaped for a "Girls night out." The owners were attentive but not overbearing and the lake views are breath-taking."

"We loved our stay at the Whaler's Cove. The cottage is right on the bank of the Canandaigua lake and has very scenic views of the lake and the mountains behind. The surrounding area was very peaceful but still within a community so not that secluded. The cottage itself was extremely well maintained and very clean when we arrived. The owner got back to me with any questions I had in a very timely manner. The sun room was great and we enjoyed having meals there overlooking the lake.
One thing worth highlighting is that this cottage uses septic tank for its water supply. This was clearly called out in the rental agreement before we booked. However not having stayed in a house running on a septic tank before, we were a bit anxious. We did not run into any issues as we were extremely conservative about water usage. Apart from this we had a splendid stay and we would highly recommend renting this property to other traveling families!"
