We booked for 2 days midweek, would have stayed longer if we had more time. Fred is a gracious host, his dogs are lovable. The room was clean, complete with anything we needed: WiFi/Cable, appliances, dishware, nice shower. Wrong season for pool, but centrally located to beaches, state park, tourism, shopping. Thanks, Fred!
Thanks for staying here it was a pleasure hosting you both.
Delightful, friendly host
Fred was very accommodating and the dogs were fun. He was very careful to keep them under control but I like dogs so was happy to have them. The room is very well stocked with things you need. The only thing I missed was a chair with a back but it would make the room too crowded. Great place to stay if you are visiting someone or working and mostly just need a place to sleep and clean up. It’s just off 41 so convenient to anything in the area. Dip in the pool at end of the day is very refreshing.
Awesome! We will be back!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fred's place!! We travel to FL from VA twice a year, March to get away from the harsh cold and winter and November just to get away. The location is great, just a short drive to any beach we felt like hitting that day and whatever food we were in the mood for. It is close to everything but away from it all also!
Fred is an awesome host...he made us breakfast and an amazing dinner...hung out with us and his dogs are the best!! It was nice actually meeting and getting to know the person we were renting from, it felt like we were visiting family instead of renting a place for a few days! He is just a super nice guy and went above and beyond to make us feel wecome!
The room was really nice, we had everything we could possibly need. The bathroom was huge, shower was great, bed was comfy and having the laundry and coffee maker was a plus :) The pool area is really nice although it was still too cool to get in. The Wi-Fi worked great and there is a TV although we never turned it on.
The new room he added to VRBO is beautiful! We will be returning to Laurel, FL and will stay at Fred's Place every chance we get. We highly recommend staying with Fred and Bubba the love sponge and Tanya the black!
Mike and Carrie are such great people. I enjoyed their company and conversation and would recommend to any hosts on VRBO to take the time to get to know them. I look forward to their return.
I loved my stay!!!!
I have dogs of my own that I brought with me. I was a little skeptical of how my dogs will react with other dogs. When I got to Fred‘s house, Fred was awesome with my dogs and his dogs were awesome too. He was very welcoming, I’m so happy that I met Fred because not also did he teach me things about my dog but he taught me about this beautiful book and I’m so thankful that I met Fred for. The room was superclean, there was no other noise besides my dogs. Everything I needed was in the reach of my hand. From a coffee pot to coffee liners. I would always stay at Fred‘s place if I go out to Sarasota. I don’t care if I’m 30 minutes away from where I need to go. That is my place to go from now i’m out. He has a pool and it’s really nicely kept. Next time I think I’m gonna stay longer. I didn’t get to enjoy everything that his house offered because I only stayed one night. Overall experience was awesome Fred is awesome the dogs are awesome the house is awesome!!!
Valerie and TC were great to have as guests. Her two new pups had a blast playing in the yard with my dogs and got a real workout. It was a pleasure hosting them and what great guests! They left the room so clean and even left a very nice tip!
They are welcome back anytime!
Close to Oscar Scheer State Park and beaches
Fred was very friendly and wanted to make sure everything was ok. The room was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have the coffee maker with coffee supplied as well as microwave, refrigerator and washer and drier. Great price.
Affordable, centrally located, dog friendly, and gracious host.
Property was clean and well equipped. Originally booked it for 6 nights but extended our stay an extra 2 days. Enjoyed the area and loved the warm temperatures. Very relaxing vacation.
