This is a well maintained villa in a very private location. The pool area is not overlooked and there is a large sunbathing area around the pool. There are all the essential amenities close by and the villa itself is fully equipped right down to provided beach towels. All 3 bedrooms are very large.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting us share your home in Florida, as it was our second visit it was like going home for us. We really enjoyed it, loved the wildlife in the garden, in fact loved everything about our stay.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week and we could not have been more pleased. I was concerned because the homes we have rented before have all been on the beach or within walking distance. This home is a short distance from the beaches. This turned out to be a blessing as we were lucky enough to experience a different beach every day of our stay. Our other beach vacations have consisted of us visiting the beach area where we were staying.

The home is clean and inviting. It had every thing we needed and then some. There are ample towels in the bathrooms for bathing as well as beach towels for the pool area. The kitchen is fully stocked- the best stocked kitchen we have ever had in all the rentals we have stayed in. The home was a bit warm when we arrived but quickly cooled off and stayed at a pleasant temperature for our entire stay. The beds were comfortable and we slept like babies. We did have issues with the internet connection a few times- maybe 3 or so; when this would happen we turned it off for approximately 10 - 30 seconds to reset it and it would work perfectly.

The area offers several good restaurants and stores. There is a Walmart in close proximity as well as a Walgreens and CVS. The owners offer several suggestions of sights to visit as well as good restaurants to grab a bite to eat. We tried several little local eateries on our trips to and from the beaches and were never disappointed.

I must admit I was a bit concerned renting a property from an owner who lives out of the USA; however, there were no issues. I will recommend this property to others- I have already given the information on this rental to 3 people and I have been home for just a few days!!!! By no means, do not let the distance from beaches or attractions deter you from renting this home. The toll road affords a quick drive to beaches- our favorite was in Anna Maria Island which was a short drive- approximately an hour and a half - away. We also used the toll road to explore both Clearwater and St. Pete's Beaches- which were very nice. We visited a couple state park beaches as well as a few hours in Tarpon Springs shopping at the little shops. Fun times.

Thanks Keith and Christine for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your home. I appreciate the communication via e-mail as well as snail mail. You made our annual VRBO a huge success! We can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your detailed comments. We do try very hard to ensure that our villa is comfortable and well equipped so we appreciate your comments. Also we have a lady who looks after the villa and she always leaves it beautifully for the next family who stay. Even though we live in France any problems are dealt with immediately and we pride ourselves on a welcoming home.

Peaceful, Private, Paradise !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time, the house was very nice and comfortable. We all enjoyed the pool and the home had everything we needed. The area is quiet and has all kinds of restaurants and shopping. We went to Universal Studio in Orlando and went to the beaches which are not that far away. Owners are very pleasant and will assist with whatever they can, Thanks, Keith, we had the Best Time, hope to do it again soon, Bob & Tracy.

peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for three weeks and could easily have stayed longer. It was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and had a lovely warm pool, of which we made good use. The kitchen had everything you would need for indoor or outdoor dining. What we liked was that it was quiet with no traffic noise even though shopping Malls were conveniently close, and also not overlooked as the villa was screened from neighbours by trees and shrubs. We hung a bird feeder and had all sorts of lovely birds coming daily. We would definitely like to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely review. We do not regard our property as just a rental villa as all the facilities we provide would be the same as a permanent resident would expect. The privacy of the location is so important.

outside property was not well maintained

  • 4 of 5

The home inside was well kept and clean. When we arrived it was very hot and humid and over 90, the thermostat was locked on 82 I had to call the owner in France to get directions on how to un-lock the thermostat. All & all it was well worth the money!

Owner's Response: We are disappointed with the title of this review as we have never had a comment about the outside of the property. When we spoke to the renters it was never mentioned. Also no mention is made that the renters arrived a day earlier than expected and we arranged at very short notice, for the villa to be available. The important thing is that the owners are always available if any problems arrive and are dealt with immediately. We do ensure that the outside area is always well maintained , so this comment was a surprise. However, we have so many excellent reports about our villa, not all published on this site. We just wish that the renters had had the courtesy to speak to us rather than producing this headline.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three weeks and had a great time. The villa was everything described and more. Would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a peaceful but yet convientant place to stay. The villa had everything that you could want and more. Which could prove to be important the longer you stay in a place the more you appreciate the comforts of home and this villa had it all.

The bedrooms were a great size and although there was only two of us there was easily enough space for six people. Pool was beautiful as was the space on the lani and where the table and chairs was you could escape from the sun to cool down. The selection of DVD's and video's were very good and a nice way to relax after a hectic day.

The villa was very close to shops of all kinds and Bowling and the beaches and of course golf courses. Golf was very reasonable and the courses lovely. We went to Tampa and Clearwater and St. Petersburgh and it took no length of time to get to any of them and driving was dead easy and petrol very cheap. We also went to Buch Gardens which was only an hour away. We also went to Orlando to do a couple of things we did not get to do in the past. We decided on Springhill after a lot of research because we wanted somewhere central that would let us go up the coast or down and also the orlando area and we decided Spring Hill was it.

The owners were very helpful with everythin. The villa was immaculate and they were only a phone call away if you wanted to ask them anything. So I could say without a doubt if we are back this way again I know which villa I would like to book again.
