Great Family Vacation for all

  • 5 of 5

August 1,2016, My family and I stayed at Dawn and Tony's house, it was a wonderful week for all, the house was well stocked with fresh clean linens and the kitchen had just about every thing you could want, or need from Margarita maker to coffee maker. The grandkids enjoyed the rope swing and even a few of us adults gave it a try. Close to the river and the Gulf for great fishing or just enjoying the quiet neighborhood. we would definitely like to return next year.

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Located in Crystal Springs, Florida the house and it's accouterments were very well kept. The private fishing dock and boat lift was perfect for our boat and entertainment. The locals are very friendly and attentive and dining was great wherever we went.

The owners are gracious and very helpful with guides dining and local attractions.

We look forward to coming again next year.

This was our first time using VRBO and renting a house for a month. It was exactly as described. Great location, the owner was always available, and we even saw dolphins and manatees in the backyard canal. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Sorry your past stay was met with some challenges. We understand how frustrating it is when the power goes out. When made aware of the electrical problem we did respond as quickly as we could, had power restored within fifteen minutes, and repaired the wire issues. Plans are made to replace blinds and repair boat lift by end of summer. We appreciate all of your suggestions to improve future guests stays at our home.
