Paradise Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our families first experience using the Homeaway app for a vacation rental. Kandi was wonderful, from the first email letting us know our family could stay on our dates, to the morning we left the house to end our vacation. The house was beautiful, large Kitchen, and great sized bedrooms. having your own personal pool put the icing on the cake. it was a perfect nightcap to our evenings after spending the majority time at the many close beaches within 10-15 minutes drive from the house. Location of this property is perfect, with many stores right around the corner for grocery shopping etc. Our experience with the Owner and maintenance staff was an A+ all the way around. we highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the vacation that lets you feel like you never left your home.

A truly great Florida getaway home. The location and ammenaties made it a trip of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have never been to the Gulf Coast of Florida before. After spending a truly great week at the Canal house, we all agreed that we couldn't have picked a better home. It was situated not far from all of the obvious great beaches (Siesta Key, Bradenton, Anna Maria Island,etc.) and attractions the area had to offer. We could have been content just staying at the the house enjoying the kyaks, palm lined heated pool, hot tub, meals out side, bike rides around the quite neighborhood taking in all the beautiful tropical landscaping and homes. trust me, this place has a true Florida feel to it and made us feel right at home. Kandy was more than helpful throughout rental process. Probably the best vacation our family had ever taken.

Grandpa's 80th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic mini-family reunion (Grandpa's 80th b-day). The Canal house was perfect. It was very spacious, layout was great and all on one level for the little ones. The house was very comfortable and relaxing. The location was just a few miles from the beach and had a ton of restaurants nearby. The neighborhood was extremely quiet and friendly. We didn't get to use the bikes but we did use the kayaks which was super fun. Kandi was so easy to work with, this being our first time using VRBO - she made it painless. Highly recommend this house.

I spent a month at this house and plan to return. The house is very well appointed. The living spaces are very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipment and fun to cook in. You can't beat this location. Minutes to the beaches and excellent restaurants. I highly recommend this house.

What A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent an entire month here and would have stayed longer if it wasn't booked already. First let me start with how spacious the home is. The master bedroom is extremely comfortable (it has a sleep number bed!) and was separate from the other bedrooms which made it feel very private. When we had company, we didn't hear our guests at all. The kitchen here was a total dream. We actually found ourselves cooking almost every night instead of enjoying the restaurants that were around because of how nice the kitchen was. We could work in there together and have plenty of space. The dock was great, we fished off of it all the time and were able to catch lots of fish... some of them we were able to keep and eat. We also put a crab pot in the water that brought us lots of yummy treats. The kayaks very fun to use and we loved taking them out in the evening when the water was calm and the sun was going down. We traveled to many different beaches in the area. Some of them were only a 3-5 minute drive which was really easy. There is so much to do in the area that we didn't get to see it all, even with the whole month we had there. All in all, we absolutely loved our time here and would not have left if we were given the choice. Kandi was great to deal with and had answers for all of our questions in no time at all. We cannot wait to come back!!
