Three, spacious bedrooms, plus a great room, are on the second floor and perfect for additional guests and children.
Our family spent Thansgiving at this beautiful house and it was perfect! One of our favorite things to do was sit out on the lanai in the sun. The furnishings are gorgeous and we had a really memorable stay. Thank you! (Guest book comment)
Our family of 8 had a wonderful time during our too short stay in this beautiful home. It is dramatic, as described, and we were reminded of something out of the old south when we initially drove up. The location is convenient to restaurants and shopping, but we chose only to leave to spend one afternoon in St. Armand's Circle (wow, what fun!), as we all thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and quiet of the home, and especially the incredible outdoor area and pool. The pictures of the lanai and pool really don't do it justice. Each one of us spent an inordinate amount of time in the pool, including our 2 grandchildren, and there were tons of pool toys available in the garage for our use. The home is well appointed, the bedrooms lovely and comfortable (the master bedroom and bath are huge), the upstairs has another very large living area and the kitchen, with upgraded appliances, was stocked with everything we needed. There's also an additional gas grill outside, which we made good use of. The owner, Marilee, made things so easy for us from the initial conversations regarding our stay, to stopping by to make certain we had everything we needed. It's difficult, with everyone's hectic lives, to schedule time away together, so when we searched for a home to rent for our vacation, we looked for perfection and a place to create some wonderful memories. We did that, easily, in this home. Thanks so much!
We had an amazing experience. The house is great, and the neighborhood is quiet, peaceful. Watching and hearing wildlife around the back yard in the mornings: priceless!!! Perfect place for resting... Owner is very friendly, helpful. We definitely recommend this house!
Spacious? Yes. Private? Yes. Luxurious? Faded Grandeur, maybe. Had we got out of the car when we drove past last September and saw the pool area, we wouldn't have booked. Like much of the rest of the property it is in need of some TLC. We are very easy going Brits who aren't folk to moan or complain, which the owner will vouch for. The dishwasher not working was not an issue for us, some lights and fans didn't work either, again not an issue. When the upstairs toilet leaked through the ceiling the owner was quick to have people in to look at it. (Stains show it has happened before) This left a musty smell downstairs for the remainder of our rental. In fairness the owner, living only 2 doors down was quick to respond and indeed was getting quotes to update the pool area. Lakewood is a lovely area with nice restaurants, shops and bars and only 40 minutes from some gorgeous beaches. Wildlife is abundant and varied around the home too. For the money spent, we just feel the whole place wasn't as good as it could have been. Back to rentals on AMI for this family!
We really enjoyed our stay. The home is very large, well laid out. It had everything one could ask for. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed . We were minutes from golf courses, shopping (UTC) and restaurants. The owner was available within minutes to respond to a couple of very minor issues which made our stay even that much more pleasurable. Definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Very spacious home. Had a very homelike feel. Enjoyed our stay. A wonderful Christmas and New Year celebration.
