Nice place and spacious

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! There was enough room for nine people and spacious. We spent a lot of time in the pool and cooking at home since the west coast was polluted. The only thing was one of the bathroom toilet didn't work unless we kept pushing down the water so the tank would fill up so that was kind of annoying. Also, it was about 50-60 mins. drive to St. Petersburg/Tampa area so that kind of sucked or else would stay again! :)

Great home! Pictures were true to actual! We were pleased with our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very spacious for our multi-family vacation. The rooms are spread out and the beds were very comfortable! We didn't feel cramped either! Others have commented on the bathrooms needing to be upgraded however this was not an issue for us. They were clean, also tile is very easy to clean in between use especially after the beach and pool etc. The home was clean and comfortable. We felt home away from home! The kitchen is very functional and open, we cooked daily and it was easy to move around in the kitchen. The lake front is beautiful and very peaceful! We will definitely be back! We had 3 small children (11 month old, 2 yr and 3 yr olds) we didn't have to hover over them in fear of something being broken etc. The home decor was nice and simple. As parents, this is a big deal, we want to make sure we leave someone's home the way we found it :) We did not need to contact the owner during our stay nor did we see or hear from them. The neighborhood was calm and quiet. We felt it was a safe place. Thanks for opening your home to us!

Beautiful house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

House and property were an outstanding value. Especially loved the dock for morning coffee, dolphin watching and the sunsets. Kayaking through the local canals to the mangroves and out through The Little Manatee River to the Tampa Bay was awesome! House was just the right size for our family and centrally located for our excursions. Would highly recommend.

Clarity would be nice

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was wonderful and the house was just right for our situation. We were 4 adult couples, no kids. So 4 large beds and 2 full baths.

The clarity issue comes into play with check in and check out times. On the website it says that both are at 11 a.m. We all needed this information as we were coming from 3 separate directions and arriving at 3 separate times. I received a message the day of check in at 10a.m. that our check in time was now 2 pm. Then the day before check out at 12 p.m. I received a text message that our check out was 10 a.m. We all were able to reconfigure our schedules, but still what an inconvenience. And a little rude.

Now just a bit of house FYI, the bathrooms are dated and the pool deck needs a sealer. The outside could use a good landscaper and a few less pots of dead plants. Curb appeal is a little lacking. Oh and if you can't find towels, check the dryer.

Plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We had a crew of 10 and the house served us well as far as space was concerned. The kitchen was well appointed for meals. The backyard is FANTASTIC and is the best part of the house. The manager was very responsive. It is apparent that a lot of time and money have gone into gradual updates on the house. The kitchen has been updated very nicely. (The garbage disposal switch is under the sink in case you need it) Updates to the house appear to be a work in progress. The neighborhood is quiet. There were ample towels and linens for us.

A few things to note: the pool is not heated.

The house is listed as having a king bed and 3 queens. It does not have a king bed. Rather, I think that there are 3 doubles and 1 queen.

The main washroom is the most outdated and could use some TLC but it was sufficient for our needs.

Our checkout time was listed on the app as 11am but the housekeepers arrived at 10:40 and were wondering why we were still there (we were in the process of loading our car). There was clearly a miscommunication but they did park on the lawn and wait for us to leave which was a little odd.

Ceiling fan in the master bedroom apparently cannot be used.

If you're staying here, make a point of scheduling one day to enjoy the backyard and river area. The dock is a great place to sit and watch the world go by.
