All furnishings are upscale - many custom made for this home.

Powder room, sunroom are located on ground floor.

King bed in downstairs master, jetted tub in the adjoining, slightly elevated bath - as well as a separate, oversized shower.

Full accomodations in three bedrooms include two kings and one set of twin beds in a mini-suite. All are equipped with top of the line mattresses/linens. TVs included.

Children are most welcome here...pets, too. Mom and Dad: No need for youngsters to cross 30-A! Easy four minute drive to Europa. See Mellow Yellow on 'my other properties' below. VRBO ID#: 13818

PETS - DOGS welcome with prior approval. Refundable deposit (NOT A FEE) Proof of all vaccinations please. Leash to be used off property and, please, clean up after pets regardless of location. Note: I've been told repeatedly there are numerous homeowners who allow pets but charge outrageous fees - and keep a portion of those monies regardless. I refuse to 'punish' dog lovers who want to travel with their best friend(s) so, although our pet Deposit may be goverened by circumstances, it IS refundable...and I've YET to have to keep owners are the BEST guests!

******Some pictures shown on Europa's page were part of a professional photo shoot. We are pleased that our home has been selected to represent the FL film industry.*******

Keywords: Upmarket private home, fenced backyard, private pool, parking in front, WiFI, cozy, close to everything!

My family had an amazing time at Europa! The home is beautiful, perfect for pets and our teen & tween! We enjoyed the space, the pool, the yard for the dogs, and the comfy beds. Pat has thought of everything. Great communication. Would rent again.

Where do you live?

Pictures do not do this vacation home justice.

This was our first visit to Europa, but will definitely not be our last! We thought we new what to expect based on the pictures, but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Pat has gone above and beyond to make the guests (two legged and four legged) feel welcome at Europa. We arrived late in the evening and there were dog bowls and biscuits waiting for Beau and Dixie. Although the weather did not permit us to use the pool, we made good use of the patio and grill. Our babies particularly enjoyed the walks through the neighborhood and to the beach. We loved how close it was to some of the areas best restaurants, some you could walk to. Can't wait till we can plan our next visit to Europa, I'm sure next time we will be able to make good use of that beautiful pool!

What a pleasure it was spending a week at this amazing home!! Beautifully furnished, immaculately clean and so comfortable. Loved the privacy of the backyard with the pool and it literally was just minutes to stroll to the beach. Pat did an amazing job on decorating this home and making you feel you are truly in a special place! Our teenage daughter and her friend enjoyed having the upstairs to themselves and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and relax. Our dog Cash was able to be with us and that meant the world to us. Pat was so easy to work with while making our arrangements for our stay. She was very responsive and informative to my emails and every detail was taken care of during our stay. I am looking forward to a return visit next summer. I highly recommend Europa, you will not be disappointed!!! I love this house!!!!

We loved this house and pool! It is beautiful and lots of room. The dining room chandelier and the 1/2 bath door were my favorite things in the house! We and our pups will definitely be back! Thanks for being such kind property owners, Pat is a joy to work with!😊😊

Europa is absolutely gorgeous! It was very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. The pool and fenced in yard was an extra bonus. Sometimes when you rent a home, the pictures are nicer than the property. Not this time! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need, the living room furniture was cozy and it was per friendly but you would never know it. No pet smells or dog hair flying around. Pat is an absolute joy and Jane does a wonderful job at keeping Europa clean. Will definitely return!
