A Fabulous 4th of July!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Kim's home we were pleasantly surprised. It was located in a lovely neighborhood and the house was beautiful. The house was very clean and all the beds very comfortable. The view from the backyard was stunning looking out into the bay and the pool was bigger than we expected. It was 6 feet deep which was great for the adults. There is a pier for fishing and we definitely caught tons of fish.....even stingray's, shark and an eel like snake. So fun! The house is located in a super location and it is very easy to get around. We all had a fabulous time and thank Kim for her hospitality. We are hoping to be able to come back again for another visit!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this has been our best family vacation yet and much of it has to do with Kim and allowing us to use her vacation home. It was clean and bright and the location on the water was amazing. The first day we saw dolphins, manatees and manta rays right of the house's dock. It was awesome. Kim was great to work with and the house is very spacious. We can't wait to go back. My 7 year old thought her room could use some cool pictures of starfish on the wall to give it that vacation feel but we were very pleased with everything else! The kids swam in the pool every single day. Very nice neighborhood. Cannot go wrong with this home!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Aww, Tim, thank you. Please tell your daughter I'll be sure to decorate her room for her next trip down. Starfish and maybe a Dolphin! It is after all "Dolphin's Run."

We just got back from our vacation here. This was the first time we used VRBO and we were a little nervous about using it, but Kim was wonderful at easing our mind and kept in contact with us prior to our visit. When we first walked into the house it was breath taking. Pictures are beautiful, but its even more beautiful in person. The rooms were beautifully decorated and a view is unbelievable from every room. Kim kept in contact with us during our vacation to make sure everything was perfect. The property is in a great location. Very close to great attractions. We spent our days at clearwater beach, st petes beach, busch gardens, clearwater aquarium and just walking around st peterburg. We spent every evening sitting on the dock or taking a swim in the beautiful pool. We had a visits from dolphins almost every day which was awesome. We will definitely return to this property. Thank you Kim for sharing your wonderful home with us. We made some really special memories there that we will never forget. Hope to return soon!!!

Just like home, but better!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a weeklong stay at this wonderful property and we're already talking about going back! The house was a great fit for our family of five and had all the amenities of home. We loved the pool and being so close to the bay. The kids LOVED seeing the dolphins swim by and we all enjoyed fishing off the dock. The property was in a great location, too - in a quiet neighborhood but also close to everything. You seriously couldn't go wrong with this property. The owner was a great to work with, as well. We will DEFINITELY stay here again in the future!
