Accurately described on the Home Away website and with an excellent information pack provided by owners. We particularly enjoyed snorkelling with Manatees at Crystal River and taking the ferry from Honeymoon Island to Caldesi Island. We would certainly return and we would unhesitatingly recommend to friends.
