Owner's Response: Dear David, thank you very much for your stay and your feedback. We are very sorry that you are unhappy with your stay. Unfortunately you violated against several of our house rules which you agreed on by renting our vacation home. You had a huge birthday party with 8 cars in the driveway and the street surrounding the house. Our guidelines do not allow having a group gathering or big parties and there is maximum of 2 cars allowed in the driveway, as it is a very small neighborhood. Due to 8 cars being parked in the neighborhood, our neighbors were complaining to us that they are unable to leave their homes. Therefore we had to interrupt your party and break everything up. The house is in a very friendly and peaceful neighborhood and we would like to keep it that way by respecting our neighbors. Wildlife is as natural to South Florida as the Beach. The raccoons and squirrels that visit our garden are cute, but not dangerous :) Best regards, Randy.

Borrowed Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a 5 night romantic getaway for our anniversary. The home was everything you see in the pictures and more! Very spacious. In a quiet little neighborhood so it felt like we were at a resort villa. The pool and backyard were awesome! We look forward to staying again.

What an awesome to stay for a long weekend. The house had everything that you could ask for. The backyard was an oasis to get away. The pool and fire pit area were awesome places to hang out and relax.

Hidden Serenity

  • 5 of 5

I just left this wonderful jewel the other day and all I can think about is the beautiful back yard. I sat there daily watching the palm trees sway, the sun sparkle off the pool just peaceful.

The pictures of the home are spot on! Jim is great, very friendly and does what he can to make your stay perfect.
