Quiet & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this very clean and well supplied home. So many extras were provided, we didn't need many of the things we brought with us. The neighborhood was quiet, not much traffic, yet located near stores, restaurants, and only a short drive to the beach. The backyard was so peaceful and the pool was very relaxing. Dannette was great and answered questions promptly. We hope to return next year!

The house is beautiful - very comfortable and homey

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home here. Very tastefully decorated and updated. Very open and roomy. The outdoor areas are perfect. The pool is in sun most of day yet shady areas to sit in the lanai poolside also.

Danette and Johnny are super!

We look forward to coming back!

Where do you live?

Fabulous property and experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year old daughter and I spent 10 days at this beautiful property. We practically lived in our swim suits, enjoying the pool area and grilling dinners. It's conveniently located to grocery stores and the beach. We have rented several places through VRBO and this house is the best, well-supplied home we've experienced. And for a person like me who loves to cook, I was so happy to have great kitchen supplies and SHARP knives! The hosts were gracious and accommodating. We look forward to returning.
