"Five adults and a baby enjoyed this spacious Florida home. The neighborhood was perfect for us, as we have family living less than a mile away. The area is quiet, peaceful…the action is close enough when you are ready for it and this is a nice retreat. Great to be able to pull the car into a garage (with automatic opener), keeping it out of the heat, and keeping us dry during the brief but intense summer downpours. The nice open layout was good for some elderly family members, just be careful on the nice tile floors when you come in from the pool, naturally they are quite slippery when wet. Having that pool right there in the backyard, enclosed in the pool “cage” was so convenient. It was well-maintained and everyone enjoyed it. The spa was ok, spas having their natural drawbacks. We used the gas grill once, it was reasonably clean and intact. The fully-fenced backyard was nice to walk the baby through, looking at flowers/foliage. It is a real Florida backyard, so grass is thin and there is a lot of sandy soil and ants. The pool deck had lots of seating options for reading, drying out, sunbathing and eating outside. There were even a few folding chairs if you wanted to go out beyond the pool cage. The house has a lot of windows, especially in the living room/family room/kitchen, which lends a bright and cheery feel. I loved this, but we had to get creative to get the bedroom dark enough for baby. It was great to have two king-sized beds. They were comfortable. Very good closet/dresser space in both bedrooms. Queen-size pull-out sofa was about what you’d expect. Air conditioning worked well, nice to have ceiling fans. Kitchen was huge, and had a bit of everything we needed in terms of cookware, serveware etc. Seating for six at the large quirky dining table, plus two more at bar stools at the counter. We really were glad to have the washer/dryer in the garage. There were more than enough bath and beach towels for the six of us, which is saying a lot! It was good to find some pool toys/beach toys in the garage, we added a few to the collection when we left. Never met Monika, but she was easily available, just a text or phone call away. A very comfortable place to come “home” to, spread out and relax."
