Beautiful. Just like the photos.
We had an amazing time during our stay. The house is beautiful and the screened in deck upstairs is heavenly. You can see the sunset and sunrise from the property, which is absolutely breathtaking. The house is quite large and easily accommodated my family of 7 with plenty of room to spare. The studio apartment downstairs is absolutely adorable and would be perfect if you had more than one family vacationing together. My kids all took turns sleeping down there and making it their own, which was a fun little added experience for them. There is direct access to the gulf but no beach. However there are a couple nice local beaches within 15 minutes of the property. The neighbor's yappy dog that was mentioned in one of the other reviews, does in fact exist, but his barking didn't seem to be non-stop, it definitely wasn't enough to cause a nuisance for my family. There are a ton of little local places to eat and Walmart is 10 minutes down the road. Carol was absolutely amazing and incredibly helpful. She left suggestions for fun things to do in the area which I thought was nice. Overall our vacation was fabulous and at some point we will definitely be back for another stay. Thanks again Carol!
We had a great trip. Home was roomy, plenty of space for 8 adults. One bedroom apartment down stairs was perfect for grandparents. Great location and kayaks were a bonus. Carol was very attentive and easy to work with. In need of some minor repairs and upkeep.
Thank You Jennifer ! We are doing some updating now that we are coming into our slow season. I appreciate your feedback.
We stayed at this property 1/18 -3/11/18 with a another couple and their Golden Retriever. The house was very clean, spacious and the downstairs apartment was a bonus. Carol and Bill were wonderful and very responsive to our needs. The only issue I had was the master bedroom mattress needs to be replaced (but my husband can sleep on anything!).
The morning sunrises and evening sunsets were amazing, as was viewing the wildlife from the screened in porch. It was also enjoyable to sit on the dock and watch the Manatees, dolphins and occasional stingray swim by.
The location is a bit far if you wish to see things in Tampa, but there are places to go relatively close, and for those who love the beach...there is no beach in Hernando Beach. You have to go to Pine Islands which is only a 15 minute drive. It is $5 to get in, but it is a large, lovely beach with a pavilion to get food and drinks.
I have only one issue with this property, and it is of NO fault of Carol and Bills. The owner of the home across the canal leaves their dogs out sometime day and night, and they bark at everything! Being a dog owner myself, I feel there was a level of neglect on the owners part. However, not being a resident I felt it was not my place to cause trouble, but I did make Carol aware of the issue and she assured me she would take care of it.
For quick eats on the Island- RBeach is nothing to look at, but the fool is good. Also, Matolis has great pizza and hero's (especially since I am from NY)
I would definitely recommend this house, and hope to return next winter!
Thank You Joyce for your kindness and we really enjoyed you and your families stay. Yes the dog issue has been resolved.
Great location, comfortable home
Perfect location for easy access to gulf. Close to great scalloping and fishing locations. Home is well-loved, beds are comfortable. Nothing fancy, could use a few updates, but great for 3 families getting away for the weekend. Kitchen is well-equipped with dishes and cookware, but bring all you need for cooking. Limited creature comforts. Hot tub is great, the views from both porches are beautiful. The back screened in porch is serene and a great place for a cup of coffee and sunrise or sunset. Great sized boat dock, quiet canal. Friendly neighbors. Huge driveway and garage, was happy we could comfortable accommodate two boat trailers and 3 vehicles. Would definitely recommend a few updates and repairs to the home, but would also stay here again if we head to Hernando Beach again in the future as it was overall a great value. Carol was great to deal with, very friendly and accessible.
House was nice but a little far from everything.
Quiet Waterfront Getaway
This was a great location to getaway with a group of couples for a time to hang out and slow down the pace of life. House was as-advertised and the maintenance guy was very friendly and let us use some additional kayaks. I wouldn't call this a tourist-type location, but there a plenty of entertaining options in the area.
We are located on the beautiful Nature Coast. close too Disney, Universal Studios, Museums, Busch Gardens-Tampa, Lowery Park Zoo ,Clearwater Beach,Weeki Wachee Mermaid Park,Crystal River Manatee Park , plenty of shopping and great restaurants.
