  • Amazing


    Stunning home on the water! We had an amazing time here. The highlight of our trip was when our 7-year-old boy caught both bass and catfish right from the backyard. It was a moment we'll never forget. The house itself was beautiful and had all the amenities we needed. We highly recommend this vrbo for anyone looking for a relaxing and memorable vacation.

  • Super clean, quiet, but old Florida


    So this is a little out there, and in an old Florida neighborhood. It didn't bother us, we are both from Florida and enjoyed the property very much. The home was super clean and inviting, the beds were comfortable, water pressure was good, and everything functioned as it should. We spent most our time exploring the nearby Citrus WMA, but it was the perfect spot to stay. The owner was friendly and communicated well, we never needed anything, so we didn't speak much, but I knew she was there if we needed her.

  • Exactly as advertised


    The house was clean, quiet and looked exactly like the pictures. It has everything you need and more. It is conveniently located to multiple grocery stores, attractions and restaurants. We had a great time exploring the area and looked forward to coming "home" each evening to relax in the Florida room or on the screened porch. I would stay here again anytime.

  • Awesome experince!


    Two words came to mind within an hour of being at the cottage; comfortable and peaceful. You won't be disappointed staying here. Joan and Calvin are excellent hosts and wonderful people. Joan thought of everything and the house is fully equipped. The wildlife viewing is awesome. Highly recommend staying at Laurel! I'm already looking forward to a return trip. :)
