Excellent in every way !!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay at the Iquana House ! The location was great, just a quick walk to the beach in a nice and quiet neighborhood. The local grocery store was a 2 minute drive away. My kids used the pool over and over again, along with the sunning area alongside the canal. Having 3 bedrooms was nice for our family, as it gave everyone their own space for downtime. The large living room and extended living room were also great spaces to relax, watch t.v or a movie. The kitchen had everything we needed as far as pots, pans, utensils, dishes and appliances. We utilized the wagon when going to the beach, along with the beach chairs and umbrellas. We also used the bikes that were available. I just can't say enough good things about this property. It was clean, welcoming and comfortable. We loved loved loved it !!! Jim was easy to contact when we had questions and quick to answer emails. Thank you for a great stay and being a part of our family vacation, we are more than pleased and likely to return :) .

We had a super Great stay. The house has 3 bedrooms 2 on one side and the other across on the other side. Made it nice for a little separation. Loved the open space in front room Loved how many tables they had. Always a place to sit things and still have a place to eat always a table to play games on. Or sit your coffee on. We played in the pool every chance we had. (More lights around the pool would add to it ) also had a place to fish. It was used everyday The kitchen was full with every you needed. Jim called and checked on us to see if we had any questions (very nice) Had a washer and dryer. It to was used.

If I was to go back to this area I would rent this place again.

We could walk up the street and have beach

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent three months in the Iguana Cottage, I can say that it is a wonderfully equipped and comfortable house in a great location. It is has everything you would ever need for a memorable vacation. Jim, the owner, was very responsive to any question or need that we had. He is a wonderful person who will take good care of you. In four minutes you are at the pet friendly beach. We have already made our reservations for next winter and eagerly anticipate our return. Thank you HomeAway and Jim. Sincerely, Kathy Koster

Summer 2016

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at the Iguana house and again we were able to enjoy the entire week specially since we are able to also have the company of our lab Peanut.

This house has a fantastic location and it's proximity to the beach makes it even more so, The items available in the garage (bicycles, beach chairs, umbrella, toys, etc.) are very appreciated since that way we do not need to buy or carry our own.

It will be wonderful if the owners would upgrade some of the furnishings since they have seen better times however it is their decision to do so.

Even the neighbor is wonderful since we were in need of a screwdriver to help us with a purchased toy and he was able to direct us to the neighbor across the street which graciously lent us one.

Hopefully we will be able to repeat our stay.

Owner's Response: Looking forward to their return. Late summer is when we make improvements to the home for the upcoming Winter season. This year we purchased new beds, including one king size, new sheets, upgraded some furniture and window blinds. The house is in great shape!
