Great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with lots of room. Beautiful pool with water fountains great view of the canal. We enjoyed are daily walks and close to everywhere we wanted to go during our week there. The house had everything we needed for our stay and we are already looking forward to returning there again next year.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with everything you could think of for a home away from home. Plenty of room for the whole family and then some. The screened in pool and hot tub were just what the doctor ordered after a long day out and about.

I never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

It was easy to make ourselves at home...and I definitely did NOT want to leave. The house was spacious and the pool and dock were great places to hang out with family. We rented a boat for a couple of days and even went fishing in the ocean and explored local islands near by. Len was great to deal with, and really did his best to make sure we were taken care of. Thanks for a great vacation!

House was so comfortable and the pool was fabulous! We spent most of our time there! My Son caught his first fish off the dock during our stay and we enjoyed family movies in the comfy living room! Great family time here!

Wonderful place, wonderful area, wonderful vacatio

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 weeks at" A piece of Heaven" and had a fantastic relaxing vacation. Len ,the owner, was great to work with. He was always prompt to return calls and very help with all questions or dealing with any minor problems that occurred. The house was spacious, clean,and very comfortable. The pool area definitely our favorite place to hang out!

If you are looking for a great neighborhood to walk ,ride bikes and relax this is a fantastic place to be. Many fun places, restaurants and the Gulf of Mexico a short car ride away with festival fun, sight seeing or just beaching it on Manasota Key, Placida, El Jobean, Venice, or Punta Gorda. There is a fantastic bike trail a couple miles away that leads to Placida. It is well kept and we saw lots of wild life including an eagle's nest with both parents tending to two nestlings and an alligator in a wetland area as we crossed a bridge!

We would surely recommend " A piece of Heaven" to anyone looking for a wonderful relaxing vacation. We would not hesitate to stay there again when we return to the area.
