Great House

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 seniors renting the house for March 2017 to escape the Canadian winter and do some golfing. The house is very spacious, lots of room for 6 or even more. It was clean when we arrived, is open and is bright. We made good use of the heated pool which is large compared to many. The private beach belonging to the development is clean and very pleasant. The house is well-equipped including the kitchen, bedrooms, pool accessories etc.

The location is convenient for shopping and walking. It is close to many restaurants and golf courses are relatively close and inexpensive (at least by Canadian standards). On street parking is not allowed but the driveway will accommodate 2 vehicles and there is a huge garage that could hold another 3 vehicles if ever required.

Lucie is pleasant to work with and responded quickly to the few inquiries we had. I have no reservations in recommending this house.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful to work with - she gave us suggestions for restaurants, where to grocery shop, places to go & even the times of the day best to go! The house was clean & well appointed. The pool at the house was perfect for the kids & the patio overlooking the pool was perfect for the grandparents!

We also rented a pontoon at Lucie's suggestion and it was our favorite day by far. We packed the coolers with lunch, rented rods, and brought buckets for shells - we all had an awesome day!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was really helpful when we asked for suggestions as far as where to eat, what to do, etc. They have a property manager who handles the house and lives 5 mins away, but we never needed her. It was nice to know she was there in case we did. The two closest beaches are two miles away and a super easy drive. We rented a pontoon (1/4 mile from the house) at Lucie's suggestion. It was our favorite day! There was 7 of us and the house is a perfect size for that size group. Nice pool too! Thanks for everything Lucie, we hope to be back next year!

Perfect for families of all ages

  • 5 of 5

Great home for families. We had our parents and kids and grand baby with us. House had something for everyone to enjoy plus close to the beaches. Not directly on the gulf but the beaches that we went to were beautiful and perfect. Gulf beaches a short drive away. Owners were great to deal with and answered any questions promptly. Ate at a few really good local restaurants.

Perfect for Kids/Teens/Family

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say eonoug about this home. We had a blast, the house has an open feel and is very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and clean. Everything was perfect. The kids loved the pool, and the local fishing. We went to the Windsong which rents pontoon boats, (the owners of the house recommemded them) so we tried them, we went out to the island and fished, we cought sea trout, sheep head, 3 Shark, Hammer head, Black tip, and a sand shark among other fish, catfish etc. We had and apsolute blast. I should have called the lady who was available to help but messed up and emailed Lucie, who was very helpful and accomodating. Lucie thank you for letting us use your home for our vacation and hope to use it again in the future. The deposit and payment for the home was flawless, we chose to do paypal. The deposit was returned quickly once we left and all was well. We had never done anything like this before and always did hotels, Never again, we are now spoiled and this is the ONLY way to go. Thanks again Lucie for the GREAT experience for me and my family.

A vacation home that feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to FL the past 4 years with our children and my parents. We previously stayed in Disney, but we were looking for something different this year to escape the Northeast cold! This home was perfect! A game room in the basement opening up to your own private, screened-in porch...what more could kids ask for?!?! At first I was leary of driving 2 miles to the private beach, but it was MORE than worth it. Very clean restrooms, charcoal grills, covered picnic tables, and outdoor showers made it a must each day. The listing photos were accurate even though they are dated 2004, so don't worry about that. The owner, Lucie, was great and recommended some activities in the area, like renting a boat for a day trip to a local sandbar. We ran out of time this trip, but it's on our list for the next one. And we will definitely stay here again!
