  • Palmetto waterfront


    Outstanding view. Dock was well designed and could accommodate large and small boats. Covered fish cleaning station - a real luxury

    House could sleep 6 kids in bunk beds and 4 adults in two bedrooms

    Outstanding location. Great place to bring your boat for vacation . Dockage for 3-4 small boats. Beautiful view. House set up well for kids. Eight bunk beds in one bedroom. House was clean . Minimal landscaping. Kids want to come back.

  • Great Fishing spot


    The cleaning lady was very nice and the home was pleasant. If you want Pina Colladas bring your blender as the one there had no jar. If you love an extremely soft bed then you will be happy, if you have a bad back you're probably better off on the couch. The pier and fish cleaning station is awesome, caught a lot of catfish and something really big that took our pole.

    In a fantastic location, by the water , pool was good, house is very, very, well stocked , nice / pleasant inside, tv,s hard to understand , but managed some how , clean enough and well prosecuted, outside was very untidy in general, grass needed cutting, needed insect spaying ants everywhere, but really enjoyed our stay and would come back next year if the out was sorted, overall good with a bit of tlc could be be absolutely fantastic
