The beach is directly across the street and your mornings and evenings are simply gorgeous peaceful as the back of the property is located on the Intracoastal Water Way (ICW). Just across the ICW is Conch Key which is a Natural Reserve so there is nothing to disturb the peaceful view. there is no more perfect word to describe the look of the back yard besides "lush" which just adds to the peaceful setting. Guests always say that it is so much more beautiful than they expected! There you will love watching the dolphin, various birds, otters or even manatee play before your very eyes.

Perfect size for a big family.
This was our first trip with all our kids and other family members to Florida. . Their was 10 of us total staying in this home. It was great. Enough space for us to sleep. The kitchen was a good size. The 2 bathrooms with showers was also a must need so that was great. The backyard and dock was amazing. We got to see dolphins every night we were there. Their was a grill for us to make dinner every night. Fishing pools to do some fishing off the dock. Their is a park right across the street so that was great for all our kids to go play. The beach is in a perfect spot as well. We had no issues. It was clean and functional. The only thing I would suggest is maybe some kind of line or something to hang wet swimsuits and towels on. We also ran into the cleaning woman. I asked her for a few more garbage bags just to get us through the rest of our stay. She was so sweet and had no problem giving us some and asked if we needed anything else. We would definitely go there again.
Perfect for Destination Wedding
This property offered a fantastic opportunity to house our whole family for my sisters' destination wedding. My siblings and I stayed in the Main house and there are 2 additional cottage houses available for more private space. My parents stayed in a cottage and we loved the family time in the back yard along the ICW together.
Catching up with old friends
Good place for 6-8 people stay and pretty comfortable. Beds are better than what you normally get at a beach rental, plenty of room, and a nice place to grill and hang out on the dock. Great weather in late April and 5 minute walk to the beach. Nothing fancy, a step above functional, but that's part of the price which was incredibly reasonable. Plenty of cups, plates, coffee machine, cutting boards, etc. Standard beach house stuff. Includes a laundry machine/detergent which is great. You'll need to bring or buy your own beach chair/towels, but if you're just hanging around the house there's a picnic table and lawn chairs. Owner was a nice enough guy to talk to the few times we messaged through VRBO.
Friendly's Tavern nearby is good for breakfast and drinks for lunch, other restaurants and bars within walking distance. We found it to be a little far from downtown, but research that stuff before you rent a place...
Older rather run-down house in good location
We've used VRBO a lot, and this is the first time I've ever posted a negative review. When we arrived, the house had not been cleaned. I called the contact info, and the cleaners sent someone out within an hour. We waited while the house was cleaned; they did a so-so job and we found dirty dishes in the cupboard later. Once we were in, we discovered lights not working, and the house lacking basic amenities like enough dishes, towels, pot holders, trash bags, etc. We emailed the owner the next morning, and he came that day to provide dishes, dish towels, etc, and fix the kitchen light. The dishwasher, which the owner said was new, did not function properly, so we ended up buying paper plates and washing dishes by hand for our 4-day stay. On our way out, the cleaners arrived before the scheduled checkout and stood outside waiting for us to leave, which was a bit unnerving.
The backyard is lovely, but shared by two other units so not private. The house is on busy Gulf Drive, so can be a bit noisy in the front rooms. The house is nearly right across the street from a beach access and within walking distance of a 7-11 and a couple restaurants, so the location is excellent.
If you enjoy spending time in the house, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a place near the beach just to sleep at night, then you could consider it.
This is so disappointing for 2 reasons. First and foremost is that everything wasn't up to my standards when you arrived. Mistakes do happen, but the cleaning crew was out there immediately to clean the house. As you mentioned, as soon as I was contacted about the kitchen light, missing kitchen and household items and the dishwasher, I was out there immediately. Everything was fixed and my wife went to the store to buy brand new plates an bowls. WE washed the other dishes you had used as well. It turned out that the brand new dishwasher has a bad timer but you could have used the plates and just left them in the sink for the the cleaning crew rather than use paper plates.
The 2nd reason this is so disappointing is that not only were we out there to remedy ALL of your issues immediately but I also refunded your $150 cleaning fee of which you didn't happen to mention. had done nothing about the issues or didn't apologize on numerous occasions etc I would understand you still being very angry about the house and the service. But a review is supposed to be fair. And except for one day, everything, except the dishwasher, was just as advertised. And isn't that really the truth vs the one day that got away from us? I realize that you had to go to the hospital for your gall stone and I hope it passed. But as you wrote, if you spent more time outside on the dock or the beach then you may not care as much about doing your own dishes.
The property was just as the pictures represented.
This property is just like you see, nothing too precious to worry about here. Just a nice, clean well stocked w/essentials home base for going to the beach which was across the street. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Broke n Bored across the street was a nice surprise as far as how delicious the food was. The kids had plenty of room to run amok for the few minutes we actually spent indoors. Will definitely recommend to others to stay there.
We enjoyed everything about our stay. The house was just as advertised. The back yard was a huge bonus. We would definitely consider this if we chose to come back to this area again. I would highly recommend this to everyone.
Boat or Beach!! situated on the ICW for boating or fishing and relaxing on the dock and directly across the street from the beach..Best of both worlds!!
