"Been home less than 24 hours from this property and we are ready to return. Julie is an amazing host that's "Johnny on the spot" if you need anything at all! I called her the second day I was there and she had trash bags personally delivered to meet our needs! The pool is amazing out back of the house. There are bugs, but hey, THIS IS FLORIDA! The beaches are just a short 20-30 minute drive from the house. Anna Maria was our favorite but parking is horrendous. Bradenton Beach is just as nice and much less crowded. We rented the pontoon boat and what a BLAST! If you rent the house, GET THE BOAT! It was my wife, myself and four high school kiddos! Never a single complaint or an, "I'm bored" all week. Heck, I even confiscated their phones upon arrival, so this was a true ("pokemon free") vacation. I would recommend this home without hesitation. I'd suggest eating at the house because the kitchen is incredible! Food in town is average at best. Even those with great Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews were below average. So, if you are thinking the food in town is gonna be spectactular, save you money. You'll be happier eating in and making it a family affair. Sending our love to Captain Julie! See you next year..."
