One of the best vacations we have ever had! Becky and Daryl were so helpful & always there if we needed them or had questions. I had a biking accident and hurt my leg pretty bad and Becky was so helpful providing ice packs and making sure I was comfortable. The property was breathtaking and the perfect hang out spot especially by the pool! The apartment was so cute and you feel right at home.

I highly recommend this property Becky & Daryl will for sure make your vacation one to remember.

Excellent place to stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

This place it’s a Paradise, one of the largest and coolest pool I’ve ever seen. There is simply nothing to complain about, the owners are Great People, very friendly and Nice. The pictures do justice to what you find when you get there. The apartment is very spacious, perfect layout and has everything you need and more. Very clean, very well kept ...honestly I don’t think you can find a better place to stay than this Cortez Oasis, beach and places to eat are about 5 mins in car which is great. I will definitely recommend it to anyone and I will be staying again!!!! Words can’t describe how nice everything was and what an Amazing family time we had.

Truly a pleasant place away from the busy island life.

  • 4 of 5

The Gulf Coast is beautiful and having a very clean house with all the amenities and amazing pool at our fingertips made our trip worth it. The location is close enough to beautiful beaches, plenty of restaurants, jet skiing/boating, and grocery stores. Outlets, a mall, and even driving to a Tampa Bay game are within reasonable driving time. Becky and Daryl are amazing hosts. They are extremely helpful and very kind. It was a joy staying at this beautiful home.

My wife and I spent 3 nights and loved it. The neighborhood is very quite. The house is clean and comfortable. Uber to the pier and beach is easy and cheap. We highly recommend this property.

Very nice and spacious home with an amazing pool located on the property!! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and look forward to returning sometime in the near future!! Becky was also wonderful to work with!! I would highly recommend this property if you are wanting to stay near the island, very short drive to the island, beach and everything that one would need during your stay!! We wish that we could have stayed longer and plan on doing so the next time we visit!!

Perfect remodeled get away for family that has all the essentials! Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Becky and Darryl were fantastic hosts. We felt welcome in their two-family property but had privacy. Becky oriented us to all the creature comforts that were available for us to use, I was prepared for a big trip to Walmart but she had everything we needed! Chairs, umbrellas etc. The beds were comfy, décor was gorgeous, and I see many comments about cleanliness that were so true...the house looked brand new on the inside. The pool was the best part, my kids loved coming back from the beach, rinsing off the sand then jumping in to the pool while i cooked dinner (she had just about everything I have in my own kitchen). My kids loved the colored lights in the pool for night time swimming. In the morning, I enjoyed my coffee in the quiet neighborhood alone by the pool. It truly is an oasis. We appreciated staying away from the main hustle and bustle since that really isn't our scene, but loved being able to drive 5 short minutes to the beaches, especially Whitney Beach on Longboat Key. Darryl recommended restaurants which were all a hit. I cant wait to come back when they make the changes to the back deck that they are planning and make their back yard oasis even better. (hard to do since it is already incredible) There aren't pics of the outside of the front and our initial impression driving up the street was that it was really tucked back in a subdivision but realized quickly the focus is on the inside and backyard. We felt lucky to have stumbled on this property, it couldn't have worked out better. The price was right, location was perfect for our needs, the items that were available for us to use were so well thought out and the home itself exceeded our expectations. We've recommended this property already to friends and family. We are a family of 6 and were very comfortable in the home space wise, and appreciated being able to do laundry as we stayed. Thank you for the hospitality and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. Regards, Matt and Shannon Wilson Kansas City MO
