Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Great place, we really enjoyed our 10 days. Very clean , unbelievable location (we felt like we were 100 miles back into the jungle even though it is centrally located right off 75) well kept property inside and out, owners very friendly and accommodating. We will be back.

Lovely property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here two years in a row and plan to return next year. The property is lovely and tranquil. The home is super clean and well-stocked and the beds are very comfortable. Publix and several other stores and restaurants are within walking/biking distance. Thank you again Jeanne and Ken for your hospitality!

The property is absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay -- taking advantage of the kayaks almost every morning, lunching on the screened porch and looking out over the greenery at the river. The property is just like the photos. Shopping is not far away. This is really an excellent place to stay. Thanks Jeanne and Ken for your gracious hospitality.

Gorgeous property, but....

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful, peaceful, and full of birds. The kayaks are great for enjoying the river. The house is well equipped, except for the kitchen. There were not many baking pans, no pot holders or cookie sheet. And even with just two of us, we had to wash dishes after each meal because of minimal plates. But our worst issue was the lack of response from owners when we had a major problem. If my husband were not an engineer, we would have had to spend one night at a motel.

Owner's Response: Barbara, Had you let me know the items that you required in the kitchen I would have gladly supplied them! When we got the call that the toilet was clogged we immediately supplied a plunger and never heard that you had any further problems.
