Recent Ave Maria reviews

  • Well equiped home and good value

    "My wife and I rented this home for two months, Feb and March, 2017 and had rented for the same period in 2016. Our family plans have changed or we would probably have rented again next year. I agree with the comments from the prior reviewer, Rich from NH. The house is perfect for grandparents (us) who welcome friends and grandchildren to visit in the winter. The open floor plan offers a great view of the pond and golf course. The house faces west, and the pool area has sun until late afternoon (in Feb and Mar). This avoids the heat and glare from the sun in the afternoons. The master suite is large and the guest bedroom is adequate and next to the second bathroom. The third bedroom is technically a study (no closet) but has two single beds that are ideal for a couple of two children. A printer/scanner is on a small desk in the third room, which is very helpful for those needing these. I used my own laptop though there is a laptop at the house. The wifi service is good but the AT&T cell phone signal is weak unless you go outside the house in either the pool area or in front of the house. We did receive calls in the house OK, but went outside to speak. The house includes membership in the Renissance Center Club at Palmira with resort and lap pools, fitness center, pickleball courts and boce. Equipment can be borrowed without cost and the RCC office. Tennis is free after 1pm and you can join the Tennis Club for an annual fee of about $700. This gives access to morning play, open round robin play and perhaps team play. The pool and spa at the home are more than adequate for casual swimming and great for children. The Palmira Golf club is private and not available to renters at homes not owned by members. There are two bikes in the garage. I used the man's bike to ride to the tennis courts most mornings. There are also 4 beach chairs, a beach umbrella and various beach and pool toys for children. The closest public beach, Barefoot Beach is about 6 miles west on Bonita Beach Road. Go early in the morning or late in the afternoon, particularly on weekends. Palmira is a great location about 2 miles east of I-75, which avoids the heavy traffic going west. A Publix shopping center is on Bonita Beach Road just east of the highway, which avoids the heavy traffic in season west of I-75. The owner is very responsive and helpful. We communicated mostly by e-mail."

  • Exceeded our expectations!

    "This is truly a well cared for home. It is obvious the owners love it; they are very easy to to communicate with and are eager to help with any questions we had. They genuinely wanted us to be happy and comfortable throughout our month's stay. The photos are spot on! This home was immaculate and spacious. The appliances were all modern and in good working order and there were granite counter tops. We made good use of the lanai and the front porch areas. Both are screened in and made for quiet and private places to read and relax unless we were using the pool or spa. Almost too relaxing!! We loved being able to walk into the lovely town of Ave Maria for Mass, a smoothie, or a great dinner at the pub. We also took advantage of Panther Run golf course only 2 miles down the road. This was our first experience with staying away for a month and it could not have been a better one. We highly recommend this property."

  • Wonderful property. Would definitely stay here again!

    "The pictures when I made the reservation did not do the property justice. Everything we needed and more for my family of 6 to be 100% comfortable all week. Would definitely stay here again!! Only thing we left it cleaner than the people before us did. U do have to clean it before u leave to get deposit back. We absolutely had an amazing week. Beautiful, up to date, quiet vacation property."
