Amazingly beautiful and such a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay. There was something for everyone to do. Kids swam and kayaked everyday. We ate at several restaurants that we were able to Kayak to. Coming from Oregon the weather was a perfect 80 degrees on arrival and 75 when we left. The kitchen had everything we needed. The dishwasher was broken so doing dishes by hand on vacation was a bit of a drag. Other than that everything was above and beyond what we imagined. Perfect vacation home for all of us. Would recommend this home to friends and would stay again.

We have stayed at this same place for a couple years now and have always enjoyed our stay. Our kids love the pool and being able to take the kayaks out on the nice calm water. Look forward to staying here again
