Best Vacation House Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of April 2017 here and loved every minute of our stay. What makes this home a 5 Star? 1. Location : Quiet area. Only the roof of one other house is visible from pool area. 2. Location: Close to beaches, restaurants, shopping, ice cream!! And 3 airports. (Sarasota, Ft. Myers, Tampa). 3. Pool: Clean and serviced weekly. Heated, if needed. Lanai area is large with table and chairs for outside dining and lounge chairs for sunning. Pool/Beach towels provided. 4. Amenities: Everything that is in my own home is available in this home. From the wine glasses to the crockpot. Gas grill to laundry soap. I do believe that replacing what we used helps the next tenant enjoy the house too. 5. Helpful owners: they can be easily contacted. They allow use of their bicycles, their beach chairs, their boogie board. They keep the house clean and in tip top shape. Everything works. Thanks Dan and Family! See you for our next vacation! Elaine and Stephen.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect. Location, set up and especially the pool. Our 19 month old daughter had a BLAST learning how to swim with us. Thank you, Dan so much for allowing my family to make memories that will last a lifetime!!

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have spent three winters in Dan's house. Dan is great to work with. We love this house.

What we like about the house:

...the quiet location and privacy of the house

...the open concept of the house

...the beautiful pool and lanai

...the house is well stocked, it has everything you need

...only 10-15 minutes to the beach

...close to restaurants and grocery stores (about 5 minutes)

...on days you don't want to be outside and at night, it has a great TV satellite package

...comfortable beds

...nicely furnished

Thank you Dan for sharing your house with us!

Owner's Response: The Morgans were great tenants. They looked after the place like it was their own. We had a pool leak one season that went on for quite some time before the repair people finally got it fixed right. They dilligently filled the pool almost daily as to prevent pool pump problems from being too low on water. They left the place spotless when departing to have it nice for the next arriving guests. We did not need to have the contract cleaners do an exit clean after they left. They were very conservative on power consumption which can become expensive with pool heating and air conditioning Happy to hear they are building their own place fairly close by so as to be able to enjoy more time down there in the winter. We wish them good luck with everything and hope that they keep in touch.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Dan's home is clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The property is well maintained and the saltwater pool is a big plus. I particularly enjoyed the location--very private, yet not far from shopping, restaurants, etc.

Although I didn't meet Dan, we spoke on the phone a few times. He is thoughtful, attentive, and helpful.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

It could not be better

  • 5 of 5

I am not able to find the correct words. We would need to stay for months to use the luxury house fully.

The house is was perfectly clean, you will find everything you need during the stay. The besch towels, chairs are also provided. The location of the house is perfect. Neighbourhoods you are not able to see them even you could wish it. This give you perfect opportunity to use the pool also at later night hours without disturbing somebody when your kids are playing (they are not able to play silently at the pool).

Beautiful beaches are close no more than 10-15 min to drive. You need something to eat? You forgot something? Also no problem. Your ride to store will dont take more than five minutes.

If the flight from Europe would not be so expensive I would come next month, so I can come only next summer.

You really dont need to take nothing with, take only some clothes toothbrush and you can enjoy.

The photos the reality is much more better!

Thanks for everithing! And sorry for my nit fully correct english.

Cheers Peter from Slovakia

Great place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family; spotlessly clean but no so precious that you don't feel at home.

Pool is brilliant, kids were in there before 8am on first day. Brightly coloured birds fly around the trees an the lush garden and there are lizards, frogs etc and owls in the trees opposite (that bizarrely hoot during the day)!

Kitchen has everything you need; washer and dryer were more efficient than anything we're used to. After all the travelling stress leaked away (on first day) we all slept like babies, every night.

Location of the property is fine; there's nothing much nearby so you will need transport (bit of a culture shock for us Europeans, but when in Rome...), but the beaches, Punta Gorda, Boca Grande etc all close by. We got glimpses of dolphins, manatees and an alligator (on Charlotte Harbour boat trip) but it probably wasn't the right time of year for the large marine wildlife to be out entertaining humans.

Oh, must mention- we travel on standby flights (airline staff) which can be fraught when booking and paying for accommodation. Dan, the owner, promised to refund our money if we didn't get on the flight. This took loads of the stress away; I can't emphasise this highly enough.

We're used to doing action packed activities on our holidays so this was the respite and relaxation we all needed. Would love to come & stay again some time!

Many thanks, Andy, Mel, William, Grace & Oliver
