I thoughly enjoyed my 3 month stay with Crystal. The house is just as pictured, beautiful and very clean. Anything you need is provided and Crystal is a great hostess. She is friendly, knowledgeable about the area and will give you information about places for sightseeing. I felt very comfortable during my stay and would highly recommend this property. I do plan on returning.

I had a very pleasant stay and the treatment I recieved was outstanding. Crystal's home was very, very clean and I was treated as a very special guest. If I was returning to Florida next year I would be looking to stay at Crystal's home again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Canal in the Pool. Crystal is a great hostess. The stay is very beautiful and absolutely perfect. There are many possibilities for interesting excursions (especially to the Kennedy Space Center). We love coming back.
