The best accommodation I've ever had the pleasure of renting!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful grounds, gracious and helpful hosts, luxurious furnishings, well-equipped kitchen, amazing decor, and a private screened porch. Easy access to grocery shopping at Publix. And a central location for us birdwatchers--from Fort DeSoto to Oscar Scherer SP and the celery fields. What more can I say?

Quiet and relaxing.

Surrounded by bamboo and beautiful palm trees, it was very relaxing. The home was well kept and well-supplied. The owners were genuine and friendly.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've had the good fortune of many wonderful vacations, and this last one is definitely in the top 5. This rental was in excellent condition and very well appointed. We were comfortable and happy the entire time. Each morning after breakfast we were able to go kayaking on a beautiful, natural, unspoiled river and then had an easy drive to the beach in the afternoons to get our fill of sun and surf. The view of river and all the wildlife made for an a very exotic feel. It is a real getaway and something we've found no where else in Florida. We couldn't think of a nicer place to spend a week. Thanks so much to our hosts for making this a wonderful vacation.

Tropical paradise, spacious, artfully decorated, quiet yet close to major shopping and interstate.

  • 5 of 5

What you see in the photos is a true representation of the property. The tropical landscaping is outstanding. Inside there is a nice large kitchen with all the amenities. The wifi, beds, and tv (channels) were more than acceptable. The owners live above. They were available, friendly, and very helpful. We would stay there again.

Idyllic and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay for a few days! My husband and I succeeded at finding the perfect location to both relax and easily access much of the Tampa bay area and beyond. We cannot thank Jeanne and Ken enough for sharing their beautiful location along the Braden River.

The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped; the bed is so comfy and rejuvenating; the setting is wonderfully lush with plants and wildlife - it seems like paradise. I admit it was difficult to not spend hours in the screened porch, sipping coffee in the morning (or wine in the evening) and just soaking everything in! But as I mentioned, accessibility to the entire area was a big plus for us as we wanted to explore this part of the SunCoast.

Do not miss out on this amazing place. I assure you that you will not be disappointed.
