We absolutely were excited about going to the house. Once we arrived the exceeded our expectations. We had all the comforts of home! It was exactly as it was discribed on the website. The owners once we met in person were like old firends and ever so welcoming to have us stay in their home. This was one of our best vacations. It is a vacation for those who are not wanting alot of external attractions. The only attraction we did was rent a speedboat for the day. We visited the nearby barrier islands and walked a beach that was a nature preserve. Beautiful shells were seen even an area where the sea turtles lay and hatch eggs. There were dolphins swimming all around us. A manatee was spotted on our trip to Captiva. How cool! The biggest decisions we had to make daily was 'Do we go to the beach or pool today. We saw numerous beautiful sunsets but did not make it up early enough to see the sunrise...we say next time! We will most likely be returning to the Hidden Beach House.
