Beautiful home and property. We loved the decor and warm feeling as soon as we walked in.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our friends who also brought their children had a fantastic time. The home was welcoming and the grounds great. We did some swimming and canoeing and walking. We saw some great wildlife and enjoyed a good Florida thunderstorm. Cooked all our meals at the house, read, played card games, watched movies. An overall wonderful getaway. If you're looking for a great place to escape that has everything you need and I mean everything, this is the place. Bring clothes, food for meals, a good book and you're set. Thank you Thurston's for welcoming us into your home.

Expectations thoroughly exceeded!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we thought it was going to be and much much more! So much space but still so cozy, beautiful Riverview! And the owners have the house stocked with anything you would ever need, it rained a couple days we were there and there were plenty of toys, board games, and coloring books and crayons for the kiddos! Also I forgot a few key items, but they had them there! We will be making this a yearly summer spot for our family!

Great place to stay on the River!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days at this beautiful home and kayaking on the Suwanee River. From the moment driving up to the home through the beautiful trees and enjoying our days on the porch, we found this place to be a Florida gem. The house is well stocked, clean and very comfortable. You won't go wrong spending your vacation here!

Nice

  • 4 of 5

The property was over very nice and clean. Everything you need was there. Spice,coffee, laundry supplies, pots and pans. It rained the whole trip, but we did get to enjoy a nice fire our first night and a little fishing from the dock. The stair way to The dock was a little sketchy,could definitely use a hand railing. The house boat on the property was a little scary since its abandoned. The kitchen sink area and kitchen window had a German roach problem, they only seemed to come out late at night and early morning. They didn't really leave the area so it wasn't a huge issue. There was a ton of fruit flies allover the kitchen/ dining area and in the hallway bathroom. Again,not a huge deal just annoying. Over all we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The host seemes very nice and were very helpful and fast responding.
