Why John Bridenstine chose Driftwood Isles

We had been planning to buy a waterfront vacation home in the lower keys for many years since we vacation there every year. When we were finally able to purchase, we realized it was to far to maintain & enjoy regularly so we found the next best area for us.

What makes this house unique

Incredible combination of proximity to open water by boat, huge pool, Pool table and large vacation home in laid-back community. Nearby restaurants and attractions are great getaway spots for a memorable vacation.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our summer break at the waterfront home on Driftwood Drive.

The only problem we had, John was only a phone call away and dealt with immediately . A perfect host.

Perfect for a family holiday with bikes, kayaks, pool, pool (table type) and nice comfortable lazee boy furniture.

Would not hesitate to recommend to anybody.

Great house and great location to experience Gulf Coast Florida

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this house because we loved it so much. The house has everything we wanted (pool table and pool), and including great amenities we never even used (kayaks, bikes, outdoor grill). This house is perfect if you want to go experience some of real Florida including Homosassa Springs and Weeki Wachee to the north and Tarpon Springs and the whole Tampa Bay area to the south. And if you just want to stay at home and relax, you can't beat the backyard pool just inches from your back door. Nothing better than looking up at the palm trees and the birds in the backyard. Thanks for a great vacation.

We loved the property, very convenient.

  • 4 of 5

Thanks! It was a great stay. The house was very comfortable and well stocked. The pool was great and we loved the kayaks. The house was clean and comfortable. The only minor issue was the railing going to the dock was in poor repair and the shed was getting a bit out of control with the items people leave behind I assume. The pool guy came on Tuesday and put some chemical in the pool but by the end of the week it was pretty cloudy. The house is very close to beaches and great places to eat. We would certainly return if we were back in the area!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the house. It was very spacious and relaxing. We enjoyed going down on the dock and drink our coffee and fish early in the morning. The pool had an issue and was quickly resolved so we could use it. The only down fall I would say is the dishwasher was still full and we found Peanuts in the futon in the master bedroom. There were very very minor things. If I could suggest anything I would recommend fixing the railing going down to the floating dock. One railing was complete off and the other was really loose. Our friend actually fell going up the ramp because he was afraid to hold on the railing. Other then that the atmosphere and area was very nice and relaxing. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Property was clean and well appointed. Great quiet family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the peaceful, quiet area the home was in. We were looking to avoid the "tourist trap" feel of more congested areas and this home was great for that. Needed amenities were all close enough but it was a bit of drive to the better beaches and restaurants, though still not a bad drive at all. If you want tranquil, family centered accommodations I would highly recommend this property.
