Guestbook comments from the owner

since the first time we saw it! It was everything we always look for in a vacation home and then some!!We spent most of our time here in the pool or relaxing by the lanai. The kitchen is a chef's dream, so beautiful and open. The bar family room and pool table area is so spacious for entertaining. All the furnishings and decorations throughout the house are a harmonious blend of beauty and good taste! Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making our stay a very pleasant one. It was a joy dealing with both of you ! We are looking forward to our next stay - but next time it will have to be for more than the nine days we stayed because they went by way too fast! We will recommend you guys to everyone we know!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin and Sheila were great to work with! Very responsive and accommodating. The house is beautiful and very well stocked. We didn’t have to use the air conditioning at all because of the beautiful layout of the home. Can open all of the sliding doors and not worry about bugs because of the screened in lanai. It didn’t hurt that the weather was absolutely perfect for our stay. The pool area is great with awesome ledges and seating in the pool. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock everyday with the fishing poles provided. Also got a lot of use from the bikes. It is a nice location only a few blocks from the eco preserve. All in all a nice, relaxing vacation. Thanks!
