Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We were in a nice quiet neighborhood where we could walk our dog. Close to shopping, beaches, and entertainment, it was a great location for us. Seth met us at the house and was available for any questions or concerns.

No surprises, everything was in excellent shape. Plenty of room, clean, located in nice, quiet neighborhood. Cable TV, WIFI internet, washer/dryer. No funny smells. even the water smelled fine. excellent water pressure. Centrally located for us between Siesta Beach (about 10-12 minutes) and the other spots in town we needed to visit. David was very responsive and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again. Well done David!
