    Wow! What a great place. Huge house with plenty of room for 6-9 people. The private river access is sublime, the kitchen is perfectly stocked, and manatees are right outside the door. I loved this house and will be back soon!

  • Perfect vacation home


    Out of all the homes I've rented for vacations, this one had the most amenities/supplies. The kitchen was stocked as if a professional chef could create gourmet meals. I've never seen another vacation home with everything you could dream of for cooking/baking. I've become good at bringing extra supplies to vacation rentals - like extra paper towels, toilet paper and garbage bags and I didn't need to use my own as this rental had enough supplied for our 3 day vacation.

    We loved seeing the manatee swim by while lounging on one of the two decks or on the dock. The amount of kayaks supplied with this rental was more than enough for the 6 adults we had. We loved playing ping pong on the one rainy evening we had. And the fire pit was perfect for the non-rainy nights.

    We had a few questions for the property manager and/or her assistant and they communicated promptly.

    Besides being well stocked, this home is well taken care of, beautifully decorated and super clean. Best vacation home I've ever rented!

  • Pristine Property; Complicated Cleaning Instructions


    Gorgeous—Spacious three story home; beautiful location—- could easily accommodate two families. Everything supplied from kayaks to blow dryer—- the only negatives were—- they deligated too many cleaning duties to guest vs cleaning service— for example—trash can outside was packed upon our arrival and we had to drag it to the street—- we discovered several pages of cleaning instructions stapled to kitchen bulletin board—- telling us when and how to take trash out—- recycling bin was also full so we weren’t able to separate trash as instructed. Upon departure—- we had to strip all beds used and put linen in pile—-clean out the lint in the dryer—- open the washing machine door—-empty trash cans for all floors—- remove all trash from house (thin plastic bag burst and we had to figure that out the best we could) put temp at 78— run dish washer if we used any dishes—- etc. since guest are charged a significant cleaning fee—- it’s is unreasonable to put so many house cleaning tasks on guests—- plus there is a 10am check-out time. However— other than those annoying “housekeeping chores” we enjoyed our stay—- how could we not— it’s a slice of old Florida waterfront—some people could find the flight of stairs up to the first floor—- and the additional stairs to the game room and extra bedrooms challenging or inconvenient—- particularly when you are downstairs enjoying the outside—- and realize you left something on the top floor. Decor was fun— house is very clean.

  • Great experience staying in the fish bowl!


    This home's location is a gem and it has it all; however, if you have a trailer, the road is one-lane and dead ends (tricky to maneuver and you have to back out). The kitchen is fully stocked (which was important for us since we cook every meal); however, the plates were not microwavable. This was a challenge since I meal prep everything for the next day. The pingpong and card table were fun. The kayaks were a huge bonus. The grill worked great. We never used the fire pit, but we did enjoy jumping off the dock into the spring. Manatees, fish, rope swing, and fun at this spring. The beds are very firm and most of the pillows are rock hard. We did find some softer ones to use though. If you are particular, bring your own. Having the upstairs fridge and kitchenette was convenient. The 3 bedrm/3 bath set up was perfect for our family of 4. Scallops were not as plentiful as last year, but we still had a great time and brought home just enough for a ceviche appetizer. Management did take care of a few missing necessities and was responsive. The home was spotless and we would stay here again.

  • Couldn't get dreamier


    We fell in love with this house, canal, kayaking, and visiting the manatees that hang out just beyond the canal, even in the heat of June. The manatees swam up the canal one evening. So fun to watch! The house is beyond relaxing and fun. Sitting on one of the balconies or the deck on the canal at night felt like evenings on the Bayou, just magical. We watched flopping fish and saw a turtle. The party lights made for a fun atmosphere! Not a lot of bugs except when we kayaked at dusk. Super quiet cul-de-sac road and dead-end canal. Kayaks for 6 plus 2 kiddie kayaks, life jackets for adults and at least two children, super easy launch, lots of water floaties and plenty of pool towels. Kitchen is very well-stocked, even a cupboard of spices and popping corn & popper. Only concern is the broken locks on the bathroom doors. Lots of stairs, I had a hard time distinguishing the bottom step coming down from the game room. This home and location were just perfect!
