  • Clean, Comfortable and Complete!


    The property is in a very quiet neighborhood yet close to shopping, beaches, and golf. Deb & Jimmy are the perfect hosts! Though the unit was supplied with most everything we needed, our hosts asked us to let them know if there was anything we needed. There was a nice bottle of wine and some other goodies waiting for us when we arrived. Since Deb and Jimmy are locals, they were very helpful in recommending local restaraunts. This place is just what we were looking for and the online pictures and description are accurate.

    We found the property spotless and extraordinarily well appointed. The hosts truly took care of our every need, including treats for our furry family member. The house has absolutely everything available to make guests feel at home and allow them to relax and enjoy enjoy all the nearby attractions.
