Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't completely sure what to expect when we booked this home, but it was perfect for our family vacation! This house is located in a private, gated community just a short drive from the beach. We were concerned about not being on the beach, but the drive was about 2 minutes and parking was not a problem so it didn't turn out to be an issue. The Forest Lakes community is beautiful, and we enjoyed walking around the little lake and exploring the neighborhood. Our kids loved the playground. The lake allows catch and release fishing so next time we will bring our fishing poles. We didn't use the pool, but it was nice and clean and the gathering place was much nicer than we expected. Overall the neighborhood felt quiet, friendly, and safe.

The house itself is spacious and beautiful. The kitchen is well stocked. Every room has its own bathroom and tv and the beds are comfortable. We enjoyed spending our meals and evenings on the back porch. It really is a dream house and we would love to visit again!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home justice! The house is like a model home...beautifully decorated, top notch appliances, open concept that's fresh and clean! My entire family loved it! In fact, as soon as my two boys (11yr and 9yr olds) walked in, they said "WOW! This looks like a Property Brothers house!" I highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful home near the beach

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. The weather was amazing and we loved sitting on the patio or the front porch enjoying the breeze.

I highly recommend this house.
