The "Real" Florida
This house was great for our family of 9. We are 2 grandparents ( they took the downstairs bedroom with tiny ensuite)
The 3 young kids shared the bedroom with 3 single beds (there is a 4th single bed availble as well) the teenager took the room with a double bed across the hall. Thrre is a 3 pc. washroom in the hall between these two bedrooms, it's small, but functional.
At the other end of the hall/ front of the house are 2 more bedrooms. 1 with queen bed and 1 with king and 3 pc. Ensuite.
Downstairs is very spacious with 2 large sitting rooms, a very well stocked kitchen, dining room and screened in lanai. The bbq is charcoal, a d there is a bag supplied.
Stop and buy toilet paper, dishwasher gel, dish soap and hand soap before coming in case there is none available.
Also publix grocery store will deliver to the door. We didnt rent a car and rented a 6 person golf cart and 3 bicycles instead. Often you can get across the bridge to the beach at the same time due to traffic on the bridge.
Huge warm pool
Ac works well
Walk to the best seafood restaurants in the area
Dark inside during the day
(although this could be a pro in the summer months)
Need to cross a bridge to get to the beach
Perfect Family Vacation
Home was very large and perfect for our needs. Pool was delightful and used daily! Plenty of room to spread out and a nice, large dining room table for family meals. Very short drive to the beaches and located near restaurants, carry out and ice cream store. We had a wonderful family vacation and enjoyed having all of our children and grandchildren under one house!
House is beautiful and spacious! The only thing we needed was food, everything you could possibly need was there. It is close to everything. Pool is great and maintained. Totally recommend a visit to this house. There were lots of books and pictures relating to the house and surrounding area and items displayed throuout was especially nice.
Hi LuAnn - We're glad you enjoyed the house and our beautiful location. We hope to see you again next year.
Location! Location! Location!
Our 3rd year staying at the Fulford House. The pool and location are the best attributes of this property. We had 8 family members staying for the week and had plenty of space. Walking distance to so many places to eat. You are right at the bridge to AMI. Charter fishing 2 blocks away. Paul is quick to answer any questions I had. Great location for large families.
Thanks for staying with us, and we're glad you enjoy the house. We value our repeat guests, and hope to see you again next year!
Great pool. Worked great for our family.
House was perfect for our group of 15. The pool was great for the kids. It was very convenient to the beach and restraunts.
Very roomy, clean and well stocked with everything we could need.
We had a 3-generation family vacation with children ranging from 21 to 2 years old. ALL of the grandchildren had a great time and enjoyed the pool, local restaurants, beaches and playing Gameboy on the big screen tv. Adults also enjoyed the pool and sitting on the lanai enjoying the Florida weather. The house was just what we were looking for to enjoy spending time together. The dining room was large enough for us all to eat meals together at the same table and play games at night. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the property and would book it again. No one wanted to leave. Thank you for a great vacation!
Thanks for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed the house, pool and our beautiful village of Cortez. Please come back and stay with us again!
Best wishes-Paul and Cindy
