"We just arrived home from a wonderful week at this beautiful villa! After much time spent trying to find the perfect place to accommodate my family and extended family (whose ages and needs are widespread) this absolutely meet all expectations and beyond! Mary was very responsive to emails and made booking a breeze! The neighborhood was peaceful and offered an abundance of wildlife that I was not expecting. My children thoroughly enjoyed all the different (large) birds that paraded thorough the yard and flew over the lake/pond, as well as the frogs and lizards they discovered around the outside of the enclosed pool area. Getting to all the area has to offer was very easy. Aldi, Publix, Walmart, CVS, all are within quick driving distance, and the beaches on Anna Maria Island are not much further. We enjoyed exploring and visiting with family that lived in the area, but I think my children would have been content to stay in the villa the entire week playing in the pool! That was vacation enough for them, and the pool was their own little world!
I also appreciated all of the extras the house has to offer, like pool and beach toys, pack and plays, bed railings and baby toys, just to name a few. The home was very spacious, and allowed all 10 of us to spread out or come together easily. It was also perfect for my elderly grandmother, who was able to make her way easily through the house due to no steps, and a walk in shower. The small step to the enclosed pool area was not difficult either. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, and we look forward to the possibility of renting this home in the future!"
