Great place to relax, fish, swim & watch sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

This is fantastic place to watch sea-life... we saw manatee, dolphin, ospreys, and more. It is a unique pool home in a nice location (end of the cul-de-sac and on the water). The neighborhood is definitely quiet and safe. There is an odd mixture of older properties and newer ones but that is typical for this part of the State. The rooms are spacious, including the kitchen, bathrooms & great room. The stairs might be challenging for older folks. Families with babies/toddlers should bring a safety-gate. My children fed ducks and spent quite a bit of time in the pool. We caught a LOT of fish, mostly small ones but we had fun and saw dolphins every day. The large windows and glass doors give a lovely view of the sunset and shimmering water!

Some of the house is a bit dated and could use some renovation but that is very MINOR for use as a vacation rental. The furnishings need updating and the bottom level looks rather unfinished. Just be aware that it's s a rental and not someone's full time residence... so it's understandable that they wouldn't put more money into it or update the furnishings at this time. The beds were comfortable although it would be nice if there was a king bed in the master instead of a queen. The house was larger than we expected. 3 adults and 3 kids fit perfectly. There are many enjoyable places to sit and relax... on the large upper terrace, by the pool, on the wooden docks (there are two) or at the tiki bar. The house was very clean! The kitchen utensils were not great and the house was missing a few basic amenities but the owner, who is very kind, said he'll address those issues for the next guests.

Overall, we are very happy with our stay and would definitely consider coming again if available. :-)

Great location, but accommodation needs attention

  • 3 of 5

Yes the location is superb, can't get closer to the sea but the accommodation needs some work! It's clean and relatively comfortable but for a house that sleeps 8 there is no adequate outdoor furniture. Everything is damaged, rusty or just broken. Could not sit at the grill area table without the fear of it falling apart. Sun loungers (2 of them) were both damaged in some form. Also, there was no working vacuum cleaner in the house despite having 2 dust busters and a full size upright. None of them worked.

Family room couch was ok, but again damaged with a hole in it.

Yes, this is a rental property, and people cause damage but this place is tired and in major need of an overhaul but the location is more than perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to write a review. Tina and I are very glad that you enjoyed the location and the amazing views that our home affords. We were deeply concerned after reading the review about the condition of the outside furniture that we asked our caretaker to assess the situation. Two of the lounge chairs admittedly need to be replaced (and will be), but the table is a commercial/restaurant quality and was sturdy. There are a few other chairs in the lower level that are meant to be moved outside for enjoyment around the pool, but are kept indoors to protect them from the harsh Florida heat and salt air. The pool was recently resurfaced and the grill is only one year old. The vacuum cleaners that do not work will be discarded and a working unit will be placed where future guests can use it (there is one in the owner's closet for the cleaning staff, but was not accessible at the time of your stay). We are disappointed to learn of the small hole in the couch as this is a high-end sofa that was purchased at Dillards. Again, thank you for your comments as they help us make a great vacation property even better!

Right on the water and perfect for my family!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time. The view was fantastic and we enjoyed the relaxing pace. The pool was perfect for laps and the kids just cooling off. We went kayaking at Weeki Wachee about 30 minutes away. We saw dolphins swim close by when we were in the pool. We would certainly stay here again.

stuck in the 80's

  • 3 of 5

the pool was great along with the gorgeous views. We were overall disappointed with the home, it hasnt been updated in 30 + years. the basement had a foul odor and the

neighborhood was very run down. I would not recommend renting this home if you are looking for a nicer and safe neighborhood or a more updated home. The homeowners were very nice and easy to work with and the wildlife is amazing though .

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that you were a little disappointed with the house itself and the neighborhood. The home was actually built in 1997 and has been updated with new floor coverings and appliances. The neighborhood represents an "old Florida" neighborhood, and in our opinion, has far more character than some of the resort areas in Florida. We have owned the home for more than 15 years and not aware of any safety issues at all. As a matter of fact, the neighborhood is largely compromised of retired, senior citizens. We are glad that you enjoyed the gorgeous views and the pool...........they are truly hard to beat.
