The house and location worked great for our family and friends.

  • 4 of 5

The only thing I would like suggest is the beach canopy, umbrella, and boards be updated as they weren’t in very good condition and we really counted on using those a lot throughout our trip and wasn’t able to.

We love staying at this vacation home! We've stayed at this home several years and always had a great experience. We enjoyed part of our vacation with friends and took advantage of the close proximity to the beach for morning walks and evening sunsets. We grilled fish in the backyard. Publix has a nice selection and there are also several wonderful fish markets nearby. We enjoyed local restaurants such as The Conch, Wahoo's, Sloppy Joe's, Ricky T's, Sea Breeze and Sea Hags. Our kids and grandkids joined us for the last week of our stay. We used the beach cart to conveniently cart our items to the beach. The kids even loved the sand in the backyard at the house and the ring toss game. The kids had fun at the pirate ship at John's pass and going to Shell Island at Pass-a-Grille. We also made a trip to the Tampa Zoo which was well worth the drive. This home is well stocked with all the items we needed. A great time had by all!!! Thanks Bob and Lynnet!!

Great Home for a Florida Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've rented this house. It's lovely, very comfortable, well laid-out and has many amenities. It's a great location, a short walk across the street to a nice beach, and you can easily walk or drive to a lot of good restaurants. The owner is wonderful and every rental has gone smoothly. I only wish we could rent it more often.

The house and property were fantastic! This was our second visit.

  • 5 of 5

Except for the lousy weather (we brought rain from the north, rain FL hadn't seen for months until we got there) the stay was very nice. The owner had every thing you would need. Lots of wonderful places to eat at very reasonable prices. They have everything you need for the beach, including a cart. We would most definitely highly recommend it.

This is our fourth year staying at this lovely home - and another fabulous Florida vacation. We LOVE this house! It's perfect for our family. It has everything we need. Last year our kids and grandkids joined us. They had so much fun on the beach which is very accessible. They also played in the sand in the backyard while we grilled out our dinner! We took them on the pirate ship at John's Pass. The crew on the ship totally entertained the kids. This year our very good friends joined us. We enjoyed going for walks on the beach. We joined some of the neighbors to watch the fabulous sunsets. We have not visited a restaurant or bar that isn't great - most have outdoor seating which is a bonus coming from the Midwest in the winter! We are very lucky to have found this great beach home for our stay in Florida!

Wonderful home with abundant amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your immaculate beach house! There were more than enough amenities for us to have an awesome vacation! The kitchen was well stocked, so we cooked dinner at the house every night. The foosball table was a hit with every member of our family, and the GameCube was great when we needed a break from the strong Florida sun. We loved the short walk to the park and to the beach, and the close proximity to Publix, mini golf and St. John's Pass was great! Thank you so much for thinking of everything that our family could want to do at the beach (the cart was super-helpful) and around the quiet neighborhood (we found running in the morning to be an invigorating activity). We truly experienced home away from home in your comfortable beach house!
