This place is very private and you will feel like you are in the country.

Great Central Location!
Lovely home! Pictures do not do it justice! Our hosts were exceptional. The landscaping and grounds were beautiful! Great Central location to visit major attractions! The produce from the orchard is delicious and beautiful touch. Thanks for making your home available so others can enjoy your area!! If we get a chance to return we’d love to stay here again.
We had three people stay in June 2018. The place is immaculate and has all the bells and whistles travelers appreciate. The condition and cleanliness of the house was five stars. Wayne and his family were great to work with and communicated with us every step pf the way. They went out of there way to provide anything we wanted. The privacy was outstanding and the fruit farm was magnificent and so peaceful at sunset. We use VRBO a lot and this is one of the very best experiences we have had.
We stayed here while visiting Everglades National Park. It was perfect with our 2 small children. The owner communicated with us well and left detailed instructions on everything that we might need to know about the house. It was fun to have fresh limes available and to be able to walk around the beautiful property. The patio area was nice to hang out on and it was a relaxing space to sit in the evening. Thank you for the great stay.
We'll-cared for, peaceful place
We stayed here while visiting the national parks in South Florida. The house was easy to find and we knew exactly what to expect thanks to the detailed instructions/information provided prior to arrival. When we arrived we were thrilled with the comfort and cleanliness of the house! The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked and everything was easy to find. We were greeted with a bowl of fresh picked limes from the orchard which were delicious in our evening cocktails. The house was the perfect size for our family of 4 (2 kids, 2 adults) and the orchard was a wonderful place to explore with the kids. We truly enjoyed coming home every evening to this relaxing, peaceful retreat. Wayne was a pleasure to work with-even when I accidentally booked for the wrong week and had to change the dates-and made sure we had everything we needed. If we are ever in S. Florida we will defintely stay here again!
Close to Everglades, Keys & Miami. Spacious, clean wonderful house to stay in.
Great location for exploring southern Florida. The house was very spacious and clean. Everything you need including fresh picked limes. I would definitely recommend this home.
We enjoyed our stay. The house is very nice, and had plenty of room for our family of 4. Limes were in season and our youngest daughter loves them, so we made (non-)key lime pie and limeade. The location is very convenient to the Everglades, which we visited both days that we stayed here.
