This home is beautiful and very spacious. My husband and I vacationed with our daughter, son in law, and 3 grandsons and there was plenty of room for us all. Vince and Gina met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home and property. Gina was quick to respond to any questions and issues that arose during our stay and we had a very enjoyable vacation!
Great guests!!! Nothing better than returning to the home after your guest have left and the house is as clean as when they arrived. Thank you Don and Pat for treating our home like it was yours. Please come back anytime!!!!
Spectacular home and vacation spot
Although the description of the home is accurate, it understates the quality and charm of it. The owner has gone to a great deal of time, trouble and expense to make this house a showplace. It is essentially brand new and you won't find a cleaner home on VRBO.
It is perfect for a large family or several couples. There are nine separate areas for activities, so, if kids are included, they will have their own space, from pool, ping pong, TV watching, play or sitting room with a great view. The kitchen is spectacular with all the amenities. Dining room is large and the great room is huge and great for watching TV or socializing.
I carried the 8' kayak a few hundred feet to the bay with a good place to launch it. There are 7 bicycles of different sizes, exercise machines, weights....
The rooms are very large and the beds are comfortable. The master bedroom is in a hexagonal room with views of the bay and neighborhood. Speaking of which, the neighborhood is quiet and upscale residential, close to route 41 for convenience to shopping and downtown Sarasota.
On a more personal note, Vince (the owner) and Gina met us the night of arrival and guided us through the house, explaining all of the features. The heated pool was already warmed and inviting. They couldn't have been nicer.
In summary, this is a spectacular place to spend a vacation and would enthusiastically recommend it to a couple wanting to get away or a large family. Enjoy!!
Thank you Ron and Rowan, it was a pleasure meeting both of you and thank you for leaving the home so clean!!! You are welcome back anytime.
