                                                                      Cathy R.Delta, PA

                                                                      We rented this home for 2 adult couples for a week of sun, fun and relaxation! it couldn’t have been better suited for those goals! Upon arrival, the home was immaculate and ready for us. We felt right at home! Little touches from Michelle were so thoughtful...fresh chilled water waiting on counter, fans going, books on beds, comfortable AC temp. Spent most days in the pool and tiki hut! The guys fished from the dock while us girls got our daily dose of Vitamin D! A ton of outdoor seating so you could either be in the sun or not at any given time of the day. While we cooked in or grilled there are restaurants/bars closeby. Grocery stores very close. Being in the canal was great! Saw the resident manatee family several days, many iguanas, pelicans, Henry the heron visited many times a day! Michelle, the property manager was excellent! She is literally a text or phone call away and a wealth of knowledge! We will be returning and making our plans for next year!

                                                                      Breathtaking property and great location!

                                                                      Michelle H.

                                                                      Amazing home that is beautifully decorated and very clean!!! Plenty of kitchen utensils and nice/clean grill, haven't had that at other homes we rented before. Canal was easy to navigate and nice dock. Kayaks were so much fun and manatee were in the canal with us kayaking. Tiki area was relaxing.

                                                                      Manager, Michelle, was so helpful to work with. She answered any and all questions we had and gave us so many great suggestions on places to go and have fun. We highly recommend this home and will be back ourselves.

                                                                      Nice rental. Loved the kitchen!

                                                                      Everything else was 👍�🏼�

                                                                      Thank you for your review.

                                                                      Beds are such a personal touch for so many. Our current guests love the queen bed and have noted it is the best night's sleep they have had in quite awhile! We do like to add personal touches to each room so everyone can be comfy and unfortunately we can't make everyone happy with a bed that is uncomfortable for one person and the best nights sleep for so many others.

                                                                      We are glad to see you all had a wonderful time out on the Islands and that you had a great time!

                                                                      Great Stay

                                                                      Mary B.

                                                                      We loved this home. It was beautiful and comfortable. Michelle was wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay here again. The only thing that we didn't like was the sofa bed couch. When we sat on it, the cushions would sink down into the frame which made it very uncomfortable. I would suggest a non sofa bed couch. Also we could not figure out how to get lights down by the pool and Tiki Hut. Beside those two things we loved it and would come again.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for your kind review Mary.

                                                                      Looks like someone was having fun jumping on a new couch and bent the springs/frame up; It is great to hear from guests if something is wrong right away that we can correct it instead of placing it in a review and not giving us a chance to repair something. So glad we have new furniture throughout the rest of the home that you could sit on. Our owners replaced the whole living room area with new furniture again and it sure is comfy if we can say so ourselves.

                                                                      It was nice to see everyone out and about enjoying the sunsets and dining restaurants around our Island of Paradise.

                                                                      Thank you so much for your review and we look forward to you and your family returning.

                                                                      Perfect property for what we needed
