"My husband, children (ages 10, 7 and 7) and I could not have imagined a more relaxing week than we enjoyed at Casa. We usually head to Disney over Spring Break, but this year decided we would prefer a slower pace. We certainly do not regret that decision, or the decision to stay in this amazing home. From the moment we pulled in the gated entrance and stood at the front door, we were in awe of the views of the water from nearly every room. So private, so serene, so relaxing. The pool was a dream for the kids, as was the grassy area bordering the river where they ran and played, saw wildlife (dolphins, manatees, even a bald eagle), and even had an egg hunt on Easter. We loved all of the outdoor furniture (especially the high Adirondack chair that offered sweeping views of the river) and the hammock. The sunsets were indescribable. We drove to Siesta Key one day and Anna Maria a couple of times, but the time we relished most was the unhurried time we spent at the house swimming in the pool, relaxing by the water and enjoying the time away from the hustle and bustle. The kitchen was massive and there was plenty of seating for meals and relaxing. The bedrooms were tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. And Julie was very responsive during the reservation process, pre-arrival, and throughout our stay. We would not hesitate to rent this beautiful, unique property again and cannot wait to return!"
