"We, (52 & 64 yr olds), just spent 2 weeks in Al and Pats' home, and cannot say enough about the overall condition, presentation, amenities and extras that we encountered. Everything was superb! Not one thing to say anything negative about. From the beginning, the booking and contact, from mostly Pat, was seamless and straight forward....no surprises.
Having vacationed in the SW Florida area for 8 years, this was our first time NOT in Captiva.
Although we did have "a beach day" there, we couldn't wait to return to the privacy and peacefulness afforded with their home.
Took out the paddle boat a few times to survey the neighbourhood and discovered that we were almost alone. Anyone we encountered while on the canals were very friendly as they engaged us from their pools or docks. Be careful not to get caught out in the blazing mid-day sun though :)
Fed the turtles every morning, a couple of ducks one day, and the otter graced us w/ an appearance on occasion. We could hear the owl all the time, but it is well hidden.
Shopping, and all sorts of restaurants are all a short drive away. However, w/ the set up of the home we preferred to dine in or more aptly dine outside under the lanai....love the sliding service window from the kitchen.
Easily 50% of our time awake was spent floating and relaxing in the pool. When it rained, and it will this time of year, we sat outside playing dominoes, cribbage, reading, etc.
This was an amazing vacation, and we hope to return again next year.
Thanx to Al and Pat !"
