Great Family Vacation for all

  • 5 of 5

August 1,2016, My family and I stayed at Dawn and Tony's house, it was a wonderful week for all, the house was well stocked with fresh clean linens and the kitchen had just about every thing you could want, or need from Margarita maker to coffee maker. The grandkids enjoyed the rope swing and even a few of us adults gave it a try. Close to the river and the Gulf for great fishing or just enjoying the quiet neighborhood. we would definitely like to return next year.

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Located in Crystal Springs, Florida the house and it's accouterments were very well kept. The private fishing dock and boat lift was perfect for our boat and entertainment. The locals are very friendly and attentive and dining was great wherever we went.

The owners are gracious and very helpful with guides dining and local attractions.

We look forward to coming again next year.

This was our first time using VRBO and renting a house for a month. It was exactly as described. Great location, the owner was always available, and we even saw dolphins and manatees in the backyard canal. Highly recommend.

Clean but shopworn, loud ac. Queen bed ssoggy and creaky. Electrical issues including missing switchplates, wiring burning in laundry room resulting on full loss of power. Most blinds didn't work. On the positive .. good location and ok yard with boat dock.

Owner's Response: Sorry your past stay was met with some challenges. We understand how frustrating it is when the power goes out. When made aware of the electrical problem we did respond as quickly as we could, had power restored within fifteen minutes, and repaired the wire issues. Plans are made to replace blinds and repair boat lift by end of summer. We appreciate all of your suggestions to improve future guests stays at our home.

Great Spot, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to spend a week vacation, definitely a laid back atmosphere. I spent everyday out on the water kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, snorkeling, fishing, etc. If you enjoy the water this is the spot for you. The home was great, I did wish the boat lift was working that would have made this my perfect ideal rental, but with the private ramp next to the house, and dock with fenders in place, it worked out just fine. My wife and I really enjoyed our time there, and have discussed definitely coming back in the future. Got good recommendations from the neighbor on fishing tips, and the other neighbor we chatted in depth about sailing, and he gave us some great locations for other stuff to see in the area.

Owner's Response: We hope to have the lift repaired this summer. Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Think of us again for future travel plans.
