Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I loved the place. Came very well equipped for a great time out in the Kayaks, or just relaxing on the decks. All the amenities you could ask for. Convenient to restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. This one will be on our favorite list to return to over the years to come. Great value.

Truly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We immediately fell in love with the verandah and Adirondack chairs. The view is mesmerizing, tempting us to sit out there all day. Not to be completely lazy, we did get to enjoy the beach. And the last morning, ventured out in the two man kayak. We had a lot of fun. The cottage is very clean, cozy, comfortable and well equipped. My friend is an artist and I am looking forward to her rendition of our view.

S'mores when we walk through the door set the tone for this trip!

  • 4 of 5

What a welcome! Sitting on the island was a tray of all the goodies we needed to roast s'mores that evening. In the fridge was chilled water bottles. To even top that Joe, the property manager sent me a message that morning saying the home was ready and we could arrive whenever we liked! Since we didn't live far we hopped in the car and were kayaking before 2pm!

The home is lovely. I brought my blended for smoothies only to discover they had one. As I'm an early riser, the noise from the park next door never bothered me or my family.

One note: the shower is tiny for those with small children you might find the outdoor shower more spacious for taking care of the little ones.

The master bedroom mattress could use replacing as there is a definite sink hole happening. But all in all it was a wonderful stay.

The views from the porch are fabulous and with three kayaks (one a double) we all ( a family of four) could enjoy paddling around.

We saw a family of dolphins frolicking around everyday. Manatees were also spotted.

The beach at the park is a lovely place to gather and meet others for the evening sunset.

As it was scalloping season we booked a scalloping trip with Captain Dustin at the Plantation Inn in Crystal River.

Just a perfect getaway. I had no idea such an ideal family vacation was so close to my home in Tampa! Will return again. The girls said they couldn't believe the week could go by so fast.

The house also has plenty of board games and videos and we were able to link up with our Netflix account for movies.

Great location great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying on this property. The convenience to the park literally next door combined with the peaceful views from the patio make this a great little spot to stay. We will definitely be looking to stay here again when we come back to the area.

On top of a great property Joe is the is the kind of manager you want to be renting from. We had a couple minor issues pop up and he had them taken care of immediately even on a holiday weekend. No questions asked. Thank you so much Joe for the great experience!

Loved staying in this little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We kayaked every day, some days 2 or 3 times, many times with dolphins. Loved the beach park right next door, the good food at Willy's (our teenagers especially loved being able to walk over and get French fries, zucchini fries, sandwiches, crab cakes). One of our party has a bum knee and was able to enjoy the CALM gulf water without difficulty, which would have been impossible had there been waves. The palm trees on the beach provided shade when we wanted it. Becky Jack's down the road is awesome! Excellent crunchy fish, and best fish taco I've ever had! We had a blast, and the owner was available quickly with answers to our questions, etc. We want to come back!
