  • Great beach house

    "We rented this house for a wedding, mid week,the breezeway was perfect for all the set up. This was my daughters wedding, Nancy was so accommodating with all our questions, I would like to thank her for sharing her lovely home . The house is much bigger than it appears in the pictures. We are looking forward to coming back next year."

  • Beautiful and spacious home well-appointed with attractive furnishings and fun games and extras

    "This home has lots of beds and a convenient layout for several families to enjoy! We brought 16 adults for a retreat and it was perfect! Many left saying they needed a place like this for their next extended family get together. Beautiful living area and kitchen, deck and pool, luxurious master suite and the shortest walk to the beach! I got tons of compliments from my guests and had a wonderful stay!"

  • Best POOL home w/BEACH proximity

    "Cathy & I enjoyed our stay at Desert Rose. The home is amazing, well maintained & beautifully decorated. The beds are comfortable and the space is huge. The outside area is a great place to relax and enjoy time, any time of the day or night. The screened in lanai keeps out the critters and the bugs at bay. The BEACH!!! The BEST PART for our experience was the provided BEACH CART which allowed us to haul all our gear with little effort to the beach. The beach itself is an excellent area which is only 2 blocks away, or actually 7 houses from the driveway!!!  The beach has direct access at the end of the street. No need to go ‘down the way’ to get to the beach. Just walked out – onto the sand *with a foot wash right there* and enjoy the water immediately. Our 9# MinPin, Leo, enjoyed the stay. The walks along the neighborhood and up and down the beach in search of Gulf/Ocean treasures left by the gentle waves is something he misses dearly (as do we). Being that we live on the East Coast near the ocean, we don’t have a local area where dogs are permitted to be on the beach. KEEP IN MIND, Dogs ARE allowed on LEE County beaches, as long as they are on a leash (and bring a bag in case (s)he does their business). With Publix close by, it was GREAT to get to Desert Rose without a lot of food baggage to haul. We went next door and stocked up our NEST with supplies and stock. There is a GREAT kitchen with about EVERYTHING you’d need there for your use. The LEMON/CITRUS press there was magnificent, once I googled how to use it.  The POOL is EXCELLENT in being so clean and refreshing (AND HEATED TOO!!!). The deck area around the pool is greatly decorated and relaxing to enjoy. We were surprised to learned that the owner lives on-site (as the live-in Super, as he said it) in a ground floor addition, but once we realized we had privacy and seclusion at the home, it was relaxing and enjoyable. We DID miss the performance Skip does at a local establishment Sunday morning, but look forward to watching him play his music on our next visit. **Oh, did I tell you? We BOOKED our NEXT vacation in November, before we left for home to the East Coast. Thank You Skip, for sharing your home with us on our bi-annual vacations in 2016. PEACE & Be Safe"

  • Flawless from beginning to end

    "Rate it 5 stars+++ We have rented from Todd and Mary Knoll many times since December 2006. They have three wonderful rental properties listed at http://newlovevacationrental.com. Our favorite is Gulf Breeze. From the very first inquiry regarding availability until the departure and their follow-up regarding our satisfaction, the entire experience was simply perfect. Hassle-free booking, well-cared-for and clean properties, honesty and superb customer service, immediate communication and follow-up, and a welcoming attitude that keeps us coming back again and again. While I have never met Todd and Mary in person, I can state from personal experience that the properties are as advertised and the rates are competitive. And as a bonus, we have brought our retrievers to stay with us (different dogs depending on the year and who was able to make the trip). To have our dogs share the vacation in a dog-friendly area like this, makes the time even more enjoyable. You can tell if a property and its owners are top-tier; the vacancy is quickly filled. That's the case with this property and the others owned by Todd and Mary. Book early, because there is competition; the satisfied customers are numerous! Todd and Mary, thank you for facilitating so many wonderful memories for us. We look forward to our next trip!"
