This house is extremely luxurious and comfortable. Not only is it very spacious and well appointed, but it is also finished to a very high standard, making it a heavenly place to spend a holiday. The kitchen is very well equipped (as is the laundry room) clean, modern and attractive (we loved the huge fridge which dispenses cold water) while the downstairs sitting area is beautifully designed and a welcome place in which to relax, read or watch the large screen TV. There is also a convenient indoor dining area. The bedrooms are very restful; all have comfortable beds, plenty of storage space and attractive furnishings. The master suite on the upper floor is particularly special owing to a very appealing bathroom with powerful whirlpool bath and a fabulous deck from which you can see the sea - a lovely perch for early morning reading. The air-con is highly effective throughout the house and very welcome after the heat outside. One of the best aspects of the house is the outside veranda, overlooking the pool, which is fully mosquito netted, making it an ideal place to relax (in two wonderful rocking armchairs) and to eat.
The pool is superb - large enough to actually swim in, but with a wide, safe, shallow end perfect for lounging. There is plenty of pool equipment, including a pool side basketball net which was very well used. The landscaping around the pool is also very attractive and lush - we saw some delightful wildlife from the veranda including cardinal birds and an armadillo in the trees, not to mention eagles and pelicans on the beach.
The whole house is scrupulously clean and well maintained.
We had a great time in the house (finding it blissfully comfortable) and exploring the island by golf cart, which we really recommend doing, especially as any older kids can give it a go too. There are many charming cafes, restaurants and shops in the central area of the island - the malts and ice creams at the Pink Pony and Loose Caboose are delicious, as are the pastries at the Inn Bakery and the pizzas at Sisters. South Beach Restaurant is a fantastic location at which to eat.
My wife and I had a great time! The Tarpon Camp was everything you said it would be. We really enjoyed being on the water and having our boat ready to go each day. We met a few locals who gave us some advice on fishing spots and we had a blast learning the area. Thank you for sharing your getaway with us. We look forward to returning soon.
