"You See What You Get"

  • 5 of 5

The house is as beautiful as the photos on the website. What you can't see is the great host Kevin is. He goes overboard to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Upon arrival, the warmed pool and hot tub, the welcome gifts, the attention to us as clients, made us realize we were in for a treat. I had 5 business partners in for a corporate retreat and meeting. We could not have been more happy with our choice, and we are certain to return.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days at this beautiful home for a corporate executive retreat. Kevin was really great to work with from planning through the end of the trip. Ten of us stayed in the house, there was plenty of space and a wonderful location. We walked to St. Armand's Circle many times and it was very convenient. I would highly recommend this property and will be returning the future for sure...

Fantastic residence

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the last year in this tremendous residence. The views and location cannot be matched. Activities are plentiful: watersports - kayaking/paddle boarding, dolphin/manatee sightings, fishing, and boating are easily accomplished at this location. The home is wonderful for cooking and entertaining or walk just a half a block to great restaurants and shopping at St. Armand's Circle. The owner is great, available, and truly concerned that the home delivers a great stay. Nothing but positives with this property.

Outstanding property and service

  • 5 of 5

A great property and an amazing view. The house is well equipped and to a high standard. Boat mooring at the back made using a hired boat very convenient.

The owner was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Deposit was returned to us within days of our departure.

House is Fantastic, Owner is even better!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property last week. The owner, Kevin, was awesome to work with, starting months ago when he personally answered the phone, not a management company. He goes above and beyond to help with your stay. The house and location are incredible. We had dolphins and manatees right off the boat dock behind the house all week. We looked at a number of properties for our group of 15 to stay at this summer and decided to spend a few more dollars for quality...and it was worth it - You get what you pay for. My daughters loved it! Thank you Kevin - we'll be back!
