Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the location, not in amongst a load of other properties, and close to the main road for easy access east or west. Master bedroom enormous, plenty of space in the villa for families to enjoy together or on their own. Once pool got warm it was very enjoyable. Very close to beaches as long as the Red Tide was not about. Villa well equipped but as we were there a month, we could have made good use of a cool box, a couple of beach chairs for mature guests, and a couple of bikes for local exploration. Very good family holiday.

Beautiful home for a lovely vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious home! It was perfect for our party of 8. Very easy to get to and nearby our various activities yet in a quiet and out of the way spot. We Will definitely plan on renting this lovely home again for our next trip to Florida. Thank you so very much!

Wonderful time away

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week, over Christmas holidays in this wonderful, clean, spacious home on Lake Marlin. Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the patio watching the wildlife. We couldn't have had better weather. We had sun all day by the pool.

The owners were wonderful to deal with. They have a beautiful home that was big enough for our whole family. We had everything we needed. I had to work a couple of days while down there and with the wi fi, I was able to dial in and work from there (something I could get quite used to)

We would definitely return.

Beautiful House in Relaxing Setting

  • 4 of 5

My family of four and my Sister's family of four stayed in this wonderful house in mid-October. The house is plenty big enough for two families. We loved watching the birds come visit in the mornings and saw other interesting wildlife at the shoreline such as turtles and even a smallish gator! The weather was very pleasant in October. The house is in a good location with easy access to grocery stores, restaurants and beaches. There is also a great ice cream shop within walking distance. The kids loved the pool although we did have a problem with the pool/hot tub heat. We had paid up front for the hot tub and pool to be heated but the heat failed after the first day. We contacted the owner and he was very responsive on this matter and all other communications. A failed pump needed to be swapped out. This work was completed by the end of the visit and the owner refunded the heating charge. The Wi-Fi connection was strong throughout the property and did not drop out once, which is important for anyone with older kids/tweens during down time! The only minor ding was that we had to buy all our own paper products (paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, tissues etc.). We are used to owners providing these supplies for renters. But all in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely rent this house again!

Wedding Break

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with friends for a wedding with a group from the UK. There were a number of guests at the weding party staying in properties close by, and this was a wonderful central location. The weather was beautiful in April, and we particularly enjoyed relaxing by the pool, but the house was always pleasantly cool and comfortable compared to the higher temperatures outside. The house was well stocked with all the necessities for a self-catering break. The supermarket was not far away by car, so it was easy to stock up on everything we needed for the 5 days we were there. However, a car is definitely advisable as there are not many shops or other amenities within walking distance. I would not hesitate to return.
