Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this beautiful home! Very clean, nice, and comfortable furnishings throughout the home with plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed the game room, the pool, and the outside television was an added bonus. The beds were very comfortable. The portable fan was much appreciated, as this is often overlooked in most Florida vacation homes. Had everything we needed and included a few extra necessities (extra batteries for game console, keuring with cups, cream, and sugar, etc.) The owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to interact with. I would recommend this property to anyone and would love to stay here again!

Very inviting, beautiful home, lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend a visit to this very well-maintained, centrally located home with easy access within the gated community. Because it was so beautiful, welcoming, and fully-equipped, we found it difficult to leave. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home with us and to the manager for checking on us. Hope we can do a repeat someday!
