Great location if you want to do a variety of activities, great back yard

  • 4 of 5

This home’s location is great if you’re going to be doing a variety of activities - 15 minutes to Holmes Beach, 15 min to Robinson Preserve, Emerson Point and DeSoto Park for kayaking and hiking, minutes to Publix and near to lots of restaurants. The pool, hot tub, grill and big back grassy yard are great for relaxing between outings. If you’re there in the summer, there’s plenty of shade from the palm trees so you can enjoy being outside all day. The house has nicely upgraded bathrooms and a nice kitchen. Supplies provided for laundry and for cleaning dishes were a nice surprise. Beds adequate. 3 beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, pool toys, books and games were provided.

We had an issue with the pool heater which took some communication back and forth to resolve. Ended up needing a repair, and Gail graciously issued a credit to compensate for the pool’s downtime.

Overall, a nice place and I will likely try to book for my next stay!
