Excellent service with one minor flaw I must be honest about

  • 4 of 5

Ok, first, let me clarify.....if I could give 4.75 stars I would. I also realize my one hang up is a personal preference and many would not care but we do. The lack of Wi-Fi is my only problem. Service in the island is already slim otherwise I would use a hot spot. I understand many don't care because they claim to be getting away from that stuff. Personally I enjoy what I do for a living and I like to be involved when I can. Even if just 10 minutes. So that's that. Not a huge deal but enough to where I should be honest. Location is perfect . Property manager is friendly. The house is set up really well. Very comfortable.

Great place to stay with your boat!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean house and plenty of room for keeping your boat tied to the dock. Approximately 20 min boat ride to Boca Grande Pass for tarpon fishing. Great place to stay for a reasonable price! Highly recommend!
