Lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable. The owners, Len and Bev were very helpful during our 2 week stay. The dock was a real treat, where we watched the abundant wildlife.
Owners were great. House met our needs.
Apparently there was storm, lightning, damage just prior to our arrival that damaged the microwave. The owners had a new one the next day. Also had a night without working a/c but that was also quickly fixed. Could have used some more light bulbs in a lot of the fixtures, don't know if most were burned out from the lightning or not. Very peaceful area and it was great to have our dogs with us. Would definitely rent again.
Just LOVE the TEAKIE BAR suroundiings.WONDER FULL PEOPLE
Beautiful grounds and very peaceful !
We really loved staying here. From the beautiful grounds and the view of the Manatee River, what more could you ask for. Len and Bev made us feel like family. The fact that our dog was welcomed and he made friends....made us all happy ! The cottage was very comfortable and furnished nicely. It was a great week !
Thank you Pat for the very nice review!
Very clean accommodations and extremely warm host. This was an excellent spot for the avid angler. Easy access to the Gulf.
