  • Lovely Home and Grounds


    The home is very comfortable. The air conditioning keeps the house cool and the king bed is very comfortable (there were only two of us). The kitchen is huge and has everything you need. The pool is large and the docks were great for fishing. There are lots of fish there. I used live shrimp and just dropped the line by the dock; no casting necessary. I caught several grey snappers and a yellow tail . I also had my line busted once and cut once by some large fish. Suggest using steel leaders. You can also catch all the catfish you want by casting and staying close to the bottom using a float. If you use a sinker you will hit bottom and collect a whole lot of moss. We look forward to staying here again.

  • Beautiful piece of paradise on the water!


    Beautiful property on the waterfront in Palmetto, Florida. Best part about it is the water and fishing dock. Lots of fish coming through from the ocean. There is even a cleaning station for when you catch something. Pool is very nice, and conveniently equipped with inflatables. Kayaks are also available although we didn’t make use of them. Maintenance comes by often to keep the pool clean. Lots of beach towels. Very well stocked kitchen for all your cooking needs. Adequate seating for larger groups. Multiple beds making it a perfect fit or families traveling with small children. Location is excellent, in a less busy and quiet area, yet easy access to Bradenton and Anna Maria, as well as St. Pete and Clearwater. We liked to go in the evenings when the beach is less busy and the weather is cooler. Owners are very accommodating, easy to work with, and make every attempt to to fix any mishaps. We will book again in the future! Thank you for having us!

  • Amazing in Palmetto


    This house and it’s location was a dream! The kitchen had two sinks, two dishwashers and almost two of everything else with a drop dead water view. The dock left us speechless with how big it was. It had multiple parts and the lower level made it easy to drop the kayaks in with my teens. The kayaks are provided and you just have to get them from the garage to the dock which was easy with the fence gate. We even saw dolphins! The pool was gorgeous and changed colors at night. They even had solar powered adorable/cool lawn lights at night. It was easy to get to great restaurants and Instacart delivered our groceries including adult beverages right to the front door. Easy to get to Sarasota. The couch was perfect and cozy. Linens/Bedding/Towels were very nice. It was a short 4 night, 3 day day stay for a college tour and my kids didn’t want to leave. The owners were super helpful and the instruction book was great. When we did my daughter put her hand on the front door and said, “Goodbye beautiful house!”

  • Beautiful setting!


    This home is a Beautiful gem hidden in a nice neighborhood. Easy access to main roads and convenience. Kitchen is designed for the home cooker and the pool is a plus in this Florida heat.

    State of the art deck with plenty of space for fishing.
