  • Perfect Location


    Overall we had a great stay. We didn’t know much about the area, but quickly found there is not a better spot for boating. 3 minute boat ride out to the water. The house and pool area were extremely clean. We had an issue with the pool heater that was resolved. The boat lift, trailer parking and kayaks were great. Plan to bring your own firewood. The beds are old (squeaky and feel every movement), but I understand the new owner will be renovating. Listing and information from owner and local contact was inaccurate and poor communication. They said they had beach towels, but had only 4 that were in sad shape. The bath towels (1 per person) were tattered and discolored. Easy fixes. The pool area desperately needs a cage. We couldn’t sit outside at night because nothing stopped them. In the end, a great trip because we loved the space and location so much!

  • Cute little getaway on the canal


    This was a perfect getaway for a short girls' weekend. The house is small but was perfect for 3 of us. The pool was great and we enjoyed the firepit at night. The location on the canal was lovely and we enjoyed watching the manatees swim around. St. James is a low key, relaxing town and we enjoyed our trips to Matlacha for delicious food too.

  • Beautiful backyard


    Love the location & the house. Just a few small maintenance issues that should probably be addressed(guest bedroom window wouldn’t close & water backup into shower & tub one day). No major issues, or anything that kept us from having a great time. Lovely quiet neighborhood.

  • A relaxing pool with unique canal view


    Spent 3 nights with family at this relaxing home. Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac. Clean interior with large tv with cable and streaming available. Kitchen opens up to a plunge pool overlooking a canal with tropical feel. We felt like we were in the tropics. Great time!

  • Great place for bringing your boat!


    The dock and boat lift were perfect for our length 22ft boat. Could accommodate slightly bigger as well. Deep canal a short distance to the intracoastal. It was wonderful boating to the surrounding islands and the fishing was great. We loved seeing the manatees that came through the canal every day! The house was clean with a well equipped kitchen, nice linens, and plenty of towels. The pool was perfect after a long day on the salt water. This was a perfect place to stay.
